Brush Up: Top Products from Filipino Makeup Brands to Gift this Christmas

Dec 5, 2017 9:00:00 AM

 

A lot of Pinays nowadays are turning to brands closer to home for beauty finds that deliver the same results as big-name foreign brands, without the whopping price tags.

We’ve searched for a few chic and affordable Filipino makeup brands that you can easily purchase online with your debit or credit card and give as gifts this Christmas. Good luck not hoarding them all for yourself, though!

Base

                                                        BeautyMNL: Ellana

Any good makeup routine involves a decent foundation. It’s best to pick one that gives you the basics: an even skin tone, a decent amount of coverage, and a silky finish. Ellana’s Loose Mineral Foundation delivers all three, with the added benefit of keeping your skin hydrated and bright for hours.

The fact that it comes in seven Pinay-friendly shades doesn’t hurt, either.

Price: P698 for the jar, and P499 for refills
Where to purchase: Check out the Ellana Cosmetics website

Eyes

                                                           BeautyMNL: Pink Sugar

If you don’t have the cash to shell out for the likes of Urban Decay’s Naked Palette, the Eye Candy Eyeshadow Palette 2 from Pink Sugar is a fun alternative with great pigmentation and the same overall wearability. Beginners and makeup aficionados alike will have fun playing with its combination of 10 matte and shimmer shades for both day and night looks.

Price: P699
Where to purchase: Available at the BeautyMNL website

Cheeks

skingenie.store

 

Lugging around a heavy makeup bag everyday is tough, so products that do twice the work are lifesavers. Skin Genie’s Lip and Cheek Stain Alive! is a gel that doubles as a lip tint and cheek stain for an easy, natural flush of color on hectic mornings when you don’t have the patience to primp.

At P80 per tube, it’s a steal. If you’re extra invested (or maybe just extra) you can also get it in their new 1 liter bottle.

Price: P80 for a 10ml tube
Where to purchase: Available at the Skin Genie store

Brows

It might not have the oomph of K Palette or Benefit, but Ever Bilena still produces two of the most beginner-friendly pigmented brow pencils in the market.

The Ever Original Pencil gives you blendable, creamy color to enhance your eyes or brows, while the Matic Brow Liner creates fuller, more defined strokes to achieve an IG-worthy feathered brow look. The payoff from either will definitely make up for the lack of a spoolie.

Price: Get two original pencils for P240
Where to purchase: Ever Bilena products are available at Lazada

Lips

Facebook: Detail MakeOver

The mattes and metallics from the Detail Make Over line are definitely go-tos for that #MLBB look. Test out the proudly “waterproof, kiss-proof, and transfer-proof” Matte In Detail Liquid Lipstick, or swipe on the Stannic Matte Lipstick for a shimmery, party-perfect pout.

These products are just a search away on online marketplaces like BeautyMNL and Lazada, where you can receive your loot right at your doorsteps anywhere between one and seven days* within Metro Manila. Have fun, and shop away!

* Delivery times vary per site.
