My Fave Beauty Products Under 500

I love splurging on beauty products! The more unique and difficult it is to acquire, you bet I am spending my moolah on that shiz in a minute! (then eat convenience store food for the rest of the week #TrueStory ) I get such a high from discovering affordable beauty products that work just as well as their expensive counterparts and here are my tried-and-tested favorites!

Tony Moly 7 Days Tattoo Eyebrow

I reviewed this product years ago and I got to try it before it launched in the Philippines and it still is my fave eyebrow product of all time. It's long lasting (lasts longer than K-Palette), easy to use and affordable. What's not to love? SRP P398

Maybelline Hypersharp Liner 

This is a more affordable alternative to my fave Dolly Wink and K-Palette liquid liners. I prefer liners with thin calligraphy brush tips than felt tip ones and this one works just as well as those two but cheaper! Love how pigmented and long-lasting this is.  SRP around P270+ 

BYS Lip Colour Balm in Seduction

This color is so flattering and wearable on any skintone! I love how pigmented and moisturizing this is, perfect for everyday use. SRP P349

Canmake Cream Cheek

If I were stuck on a deserted island and I can only bring one product with me, I'd bring this. It's so pigmented, it lasts long and there are so many colors to choose from. SRP around P400 + locally but cheaper if you get this from Japan.

Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunblock

I reviewed this last year and up to now I still go back to this product because I love how light it feels on my skin and the cooling effect is perfect for the Philippine weather! SRP P420

Maybelline Micellar Water
I tried this recently and I love how gently and effectively this removes stubborn makeup. An affordable dupe for Bioderma. SRP is P199 only!

Ellana Cucumber Melon Cosmetic Brush Cleaner

This is the best smelling and most thorough brush cleaner out in the Philippine market so far. This is perfect for spot cleaning brushes when you're in a hurry (or when you're too lazy) without drying out your brushes or getting that funky chemical or alcohol smell on them. SRP P400 at Glamourbox

The Faceshop Lash Glue

If you're a falsies noob or you just want an affordable lash glue that stays put the whole day then this is the lash glue that you need! I used this when I was learning to apply falsies and this glue made it easier for me to put them on. The formula is special and different from other lash glues in the market because it gets super tacky fast and you only need a tiny amount which makes it easier to apply lashes. Once it sets it doesn't come off easily. SRP is around P100+

Etude House Color My Brows 

I love how they carry a wide range of shades since I change my hair color often. Such a steal for only P378!

Benton Skincare products

This indie Korean skincare brand proves that you don't need to spend too much to get quality skincare that works! I love how each product contains potent natural ingredients and they contain no filler ingredients like silicones and water. They contain really high concentrations of active ingredients and perform way better than more expensive skincare brands out there.  SRP around P400-600 (can be bought online only)
