The Philippines is in no shortage of up-and-coming beauty brands. And as beauty junkies, you should know that supporting them doesn't only help homegrown brands grow. While doing so, you also get to fulfill your beauty wishlists without breaking the bank. It's a win-win situation!
Below, we list down 10 local brands that are seriously taking the makeup game by storm. You can shop all of them online, too!
Any lipstick addict will be pleased by Colourette's amazing shade range. Their high quality lipstick bullets and liquid lipsticks are just as good as those made by international beauty brands but retails for half the price!
Sooper Beaute has everything you need to do a full, fresh face. Only their foundation goes past Php500, so you surely won't break the bank when you haul their Cheeky Balm and So Matte lipstick!
Sensitive-skinned beauties will find heaven in Ellana Minerals. You can have your weightless and kind-to-skin foundation fix with their Loose Mineral Foundation, and their Pressed Mineral Foundation is great for lazy days.
The lip and cheek tint-only girl doesn't have to settle for pink forever. KJM Cosmetics carries 10 shades (from red, purple, to orange!), and each one is made of all-natural ingredients.
5. RRaw PH
The phrase "healthy makeup" might sound confusing, but it won't be anymore if you've tried stuff from Rraw. Their makeup range seems almost edible! They have lip stains made of beetroot and BB cream with coconut oil and avocado oil as its main ingredients. Cool, right?
If indelible liquid lipstick is your thing, check out Everday Love+. Their lippies are long-lasting, oily food-proof, and buildable. Their range of nude colors guarantees a shade for every Filipina, too!
Rucy's Vanity is based in the Philippines, but all their products are made in Korea. Pick up their mascara and eyeliner for a smudgeproof eye combo!
8. Pili Beauty
A natural beauty brand that uses locally-sourced products? Yes, please. Pili uses Pili and Elmi oil from Bicol to create the most moisturizing and stunning lipsticks and tints.
You'll find high quality, cruelty-free, and proudly Filipino cosmetics over at Detail. We love their Baked Highligter for a beaming glow, but the local beauty world speaks very highly of their Matte In Detail Liquid Lipstick.
10. Skin Potions
The makeup junkie who loves all things kawaii is Skin Potions' dream girl. Check out their perpetually best-selling Meowliner for a gorgeous flick, and their Unicorn Daydream Serum to level up your skin's glow.
