  1. I say go for Real Techniques! Their Blush Brush is my favorite – perfect size for my face as I use it all around. And I get you with the tax-worries, so surprise, we have an official RT distributor in Manila, it’s KALM Cosmetics. I know the people behind the business so you really help build better roads if you purchase from them. :)

    1. I’m sure I will get the expert face brush and the blush brush. There’s nothing quite like it at that price. Thanks for pointing me towards KALM Cosmetics.

    1. Haha, ok, ok, I’m convinced. I haven’t seen anything like it, really. And it looks like it doesn’t have a lot of yield. Perfect for buffing in products.

  2. ay sis have you seen the new pics of riri mac viva glam lipstick? its a nice shade of red but its not matte, i read somewhere that it is going to be frosty but based on rhiannas pic parang okay naman. for me, parang its matte with glitters, and its not glossy shine more on glitter shine so im really excited about it :)

    1. I’m imagining it to still be as velvet looking as mac riri woo with a two-toned finish. I’m looking forward to seeing it.

      Pero di pa din ako nakaka-getover na hindi ako nakabili ng bad girl riri. Haha.

  3. Hi Rae! Unfortunately, a lot of our local cosmetics brands just import from China. Very few manufacture locally (I’m pretty sure that Snoe and Ellana are locally formulated and produced.). Brushes, most especially, are just China rebrands. In terms of carbon footprint: it’s hard to assume that local is necessarily better as China’s factories offer huge economies of scale.

  4. May brush yata ang Happy Skin but I think they sell it in sets, I’m not sure if it’s available individually. I also have a bunch of Charm brushes. I’m tempted to buy a set!

  5. The best local brand that I could think of is Nichido. I love their blushes, but they’re not as long lasting compared to other brands. As for their eye shadows, it’s not that pigmented. I really do like their eye liners and brow pencils, too :)

    1. I tried one from them, a frosted light pink pencil para sana sa inner corner of my eyes. Kaso parang super tigas. Maybe the darker ones are better, will check out their eyeliners. Right now, I’m very satisfied with Bobbi Brown waterproof pencil. Kaso ang mahal.

  6. Ohhh Virginia Olsen is a brand from the US I think. They have nice lippies! But not matte. For the brush, go for Ellana!!! <3 I have their baby buki brush that I still use. Bought it 3 years ago. I also got their flat top brush! Better than sigma! :) Will try to review it the soonest I can :)
