Shopping With BeautyMNL for Beauty Noobs Like Me


Me: “Hi, Netizens. My name is Sofia and I’m a shopaholic.”

Support Group: “Hi, Sofia. Welcome today’s session.


I did it again. I shopped when I said I wouldn’t. But I guess, this is something you might say… an exception? You gotta hear me out.

I am no beauty expert. In fact, I have very low maintenance routine when it comes to my appearance (a fleet of my friends will vouch on that). It’s not that I am a big snob towards it, I am just simply talentless when it comes to using make ups and beauty products to my advantage.

So when I stumbled upon the fabulous universe of BeautyMNL, I had to give it a try. I mean, I am not getting any younger and my super bad skin needs a lot of attention.  So I added stuff to the cart.

Okay, I didn’t add that much stuff to my shopping bag but I wanted to see what I’m in for so I just bought a few items.

The package arrived next day in a resealable (reusable) bag and each items were neatly packed in a bubble wrap together with the invoice.


Here’s the mini haul for my first order!


What’s in the package:

First up is this contour starter kit. Why did I get this when I know nothing about contouring? I’m still wondering about that but I wanted to give contouring and highlighting techniques a try because I am starting to feel anxious about being left out on current make up trends.

My mistake was, I didn’t get a set of brush for it so I haven’t really given my contour kit a try. But I did a swatch on my arm and saw that they were really pigmented. I was told that was a good thing.

I also watched a bunch of Youtube reviews online regarding this and it got a lot of great reviews and I am nothing but pleased. So next BeautyMNL purchase would be a brush set for sure.

Second item in this mini haul is this dual eyebrow and liquid eyeliner. I love everything that serves dual purpose. Who doesn’t? This eyebrow pencil is great for beginners like me because it glides on easily, is sweat proof and lasts hours. The liquid liner has a great finish too and doesn’t smudge! If you ask me, this is the best Php 139 I have ever spent. Maybe next time I’ll move a level higher, but for now, I am very happy with this duo.

Third and most important item on this haul is the Korean product called Power 10 Formula PO Effector from It’s Skin. It claims to minimize appearance of large pores and control excess oil on your skin. Everyone seems to be going crazy over Korean beauty products lately and since I’m Asian and have Asian skin, I felt really compelled to try it and see if it will work for me.

To be completely honest, I have only been using it for a week and I can already feel and see the difference on my skin. It’s the real deal, you guys.

My skin does feel tighter and my face isn’t as oily as it used to be. No kidding. It has a thick solution so I normally don’t use it when I put on make up. Otherwise, if I’m at home, I apply it day and night.


  1. If you are putting on more than one moisturizing products on your skin, always remember to apply from thinnest to thickest solution.
  2. Let your skin absorb each product for 10 minutes before applying the next one

Does BeautyMNL sell international beauty brands?

It’s no secret that finding/buying international beauty products in the Philippines can be frustrating because not everything you want can’t be found in malls.

Well, be frustrated no more because I’m pretty sure that BeautyMNL has almost every brand you can think of. Especially Korean brands!

What was the experience like shopping with BeautyMNL?

Overall, my shopping experience with BeautyMNL was as easy as 1,2, 3.

It’s important for a beauty neophyte like me to navigate a completely unfamiliar universe of beauty products with ease. Which is why I was extremely relieved that the product categories were easy to leaf through and were arranged based on my needs. There were helpful reviews on each products that you can read and a comprehensive information and images about the products you’re eyeing.

BeautyMNL also has a cheeky blog that will help beauty experts and beginners alike in knowing more about this empowering world of fabulousness!
