One of the things that frustrates me as a beauty lover living in the Philippines is that there are a lot of beauty brands that aren’t available here. We have to go through the hassle of using a shipping company that will forward the products, wait for family or friends to come home from places where the brands are available or deal with jacked up prices from local online sellers.
I have had my fair share of buying insanely high priced products from various online stores, with buying experiences ranging from really good to frustrating to downright bad. That’s why I have a short list of go-to online stores who are tried and tested, with guaranteed authentic products and a pleasant purchase experience.
One of my favorite online stores is Cosmetique Manila. I am friends with the owners and I can 100% guarantee you that they only sell authentic products. The amount of fake products being sold now scares me so this is certainly one of my top considerations. I also am a bargain hunter so I really don’t like paying more than what I am supposed to and their products are very reasonably priced. All the #WaisNaShoppingeras (wise shoppers) would approve!
They carry a lot of brands – Anastasia Beverly Hills, Kylie Cosmetics, Jeffree Starr Cosmetics, MAC Limited Editions, Charlotte Tilbury, Marc Jacobs and more so if you want anything from those brands, be sure to check them out. I have my eye on the Mario palette, but I need to set aside a budget for it first, and I am hoping they will carry the limited edition MAC blogger lipsticks as I have my eye on one or two of them haha! Check them out on Instagram and Facebook – oh and for all you Shopee addicts out there, they have a Shopee store too. Go and shop away, guys!
