(SPOT.ph) If you’re anything like us, then you’re probably always looking for an excuse for a makeup haul. Here’s one: local makeup products with glowing reviews. The great thing about local makeup brands is that they’re made with Filipino beauty in mind. That means they’ve got shades that complement your skin tone instead of hiding it. And what better way to know their quality than checking their reviews from those who’ve actually tried them already? We scoured the depths of Lazada to see which Filipino makeup brands people love the most so you know which ones to add to your cart next.
Add these 10 tried-and-tested products from Filipino makeup brands to your kit:
Graph-Ink Liner (P162) from Careline
Now this one’s a holy grail for those already familiar with it. Careline’s long-wearing Graph-Ink Liner is waterproof and smudgeproof so you don’t have to worry about your sharp-winged eyeliner fading throughout the day. You know it’s legit because around 6,000 people can vouch for it—that’s how many reviews it has on Lazada with an average of nearly five stars.
Fluffmatte in Girl Crush (P395) from Sunnies Face
Does Sunnies Face even need introduction? They’ve come out with a lot of new products but their bestseller has always been their OG—the Fluffmatte lipstick. Over 10,000 (yes, ten thousand) reviews praise the Fluffmatte in the shade Girl Crush, a universally flattering rosy nude color. The weightless lipstick gives off a deeply pigmented color with just one swipe and the matte finish doesn’t dry out your lips but instead gives it a smooth, powdery finish.
Multi-use Creamy Tint (P349) in Cheesecake from GRWM
Here’s a not-so-secret life hack: if you find a hidden gem, grab it while it’s underrated—and not sold out yet. This creamy tint has almost 400 reviews on Lazada (and 4,000 on Shopee) with people swearing by its natural MLBB shade. The best part? You get three products in one because you can use this tint for your lids, lips, and cheeks. Now you can easily go for that monochrome makeup look.
Kiss & Bloom Glossy Tint in Tanned (P359) from Happy Skin
It’s possible: You can get a shiny, moisturizing finish while keeping the color payoff of a lippie with Happy Skin’s Kiss & Bloom’s Glossy Tint. Not only does this tint keep its color once it’s applied, it’s also mask-proof so you don’t have to worry about retouching in the middle of the day—just ask the 800 reviewers who gave it five stars.
Brow Refiner in Ash (P349) from Issy & Co.
If you’re always looking for a quick fix for your brows before dashing out the door, Issy & Co.’s got you covered. Their Brow Refiner gel—with over 2,000 reviews—delivers as it tints, sculpts, and even enhances your brows with its fine-tip brush. It gives you brows a flexible hold that looks natural—perfect for that no-makeup makeup look.
Sunset Dream Eyeshadow Palette (P599) from Detail Cosmetics
It might be called “Sunset Dream” but this eyeshadow palette from Detail Cosmetics is perfect for anytime of the day. With its wide array of bright and muted colors, you can dress up your lids or keep it low-key, depending on your mood. More than 300 reviews vouch for the pigmented matte- and glitter- finish colors of the palette—and you just might, too.
Lip Tint in Monika (P59) from Squad Cosmetics
You can never go wrong with a handy lip tint, especially with the natural makeup look being the trend nowadays. Squad Cosmetics’ Lip Tint in the shade Monika gives you that just-kissed glow with its mauve-rose finish. The best part is it’s less than P100 so you can hoard as many shades as you want—just like the 2,000 people who left reviews.
Makeup Sanitizer (P115) from Teviant
Admit it, it’s about time you gave your makeup a quick spritz after months (or years?) of using them. Teviant’s Makeup Sanitizer kills the germs and bacteria on the surfaces of your palettes without ruining their formula. You can even use the quick-drying, non-sticky spray on your brushes, mask, hairbrush and basically any surface you want to sanitize. Over 300 people have given it five stars with compliments about its fresh scent.
Skin Tint SPF 30 (P449) from BLK
Nearly 800 reviewers of this nearly five-star product follow the number one rule of skincare: Never leave the house without sunscreen. It’s a good thing then that you can hit two birds with one stone with this weightless skin tint that comes with UVA/UVB protection. You can opt to keep it light or build it up to medium coverage but either way, you’ll end up with a fresh matte finish that’ll keep your makeup intact.
Microblade Pen Perfector (P448) from Strokes Beauty Lab
With nearly 700 reviews on their Microblade Pen Perfector, Strokes Beauty Lab should already be on your radar.
