These new Filipino brands have taken over both Instagram and Twitter with their adorable aesthetic and tons of positive customer reviews. Although only a few blogs have reviewed them thoroughly, we’re still very excited to try them out to see if they’re really worth the hype.

Two brands really stood out this year, Hello Gorgeous and Skin Potions, with their skincare and makeup line that their customers seem to swear by. Because of this, we’re very curious to try them out and see how they perform alongside OG brands, and to see how their brand will grow this 2017.

I’ll be going to the Trendsetter’s Bazaar for the first time this weekend and I’m hoping I’ll be able to test out some of these new Filipino makeup and skincare products! The Trendsetter’s Bazaar this weekend will be in the World Trade Center in Pasay and will run from May 12 to May 14 among many other weekends of this year. I’m also looking forward to other Filipino clothing brands that may be participating in the bazaar!

Hello Gorgeous

Hello Gorgeous PH by Skinline is a makeup and skincare brand known for their striking coloring book aesthetic. They’ve been releasing a bunch of new products recently including this Unicorn Elixir that is a mix of high grade Rosehip Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Moroccan Oil, Avocado Oil, Lavender Essentials Oil, Vitamin C and E, plus gold flakes. Wow, that was a lot. I’m thinking it might work like the Farsali Elixirs that a LOT of makeup enthusiasts use nowadays before putting on their foundation.

Almost immortal like the UNICORNS with these ELIXIR OF YOUTH! MAGIC in every drop! It’s a light weight oil made from high grade Rosehip oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Moroccan Oil, Avocado Oil, Lavender Essentials Oil, Vitamin C and E and 98% 24k Gold Flakes. This multifuction oil can be your daily moisturizer for the face, hair and body. No sticky feeling even on a hot weather! BENEFITS OF UNICORN ELIXIR: Gives you a good canvas before putting your make up on or as lip primer before putting your favorite matte lipstick. Gives you youthful glow and reduces visibilty of fine lines and wrinkles. Restores skin eleasticity and leaves skin feel plumper and softer. Can help heal damaged skin and reduce inflammation. Help clear up mild acne and balances oily or dry skin. Brightens and evens skin tone. Prevents strecth marks and sagging skin after giving birth. Makes your hair softer, silkier and shinnier. Tames your frizzy hair and treat split ends. Keep your nails and cuticles nourished and protected against drying out and splitting. HOW TO USE: Apply after cleansing and toning the face. Put 2 to 3 drops on each area of your skin. Rub your hands together to warm it up gently press it onto your skin until it absorbs. (Heat helps the oil to melt and absorb more deeply into the skin). Suitable for all skin types. Good for Day and Night use but we recommend to use oil in the evening, as this is when the skin is at rest and the oil can work to repair and protect skin during sleep. All these benefits in just one 30 mL bottle! Grab yours now at or visit our kiosk at Greenhills Shopping Center Tiangge Area booth G12.

The @farsalicare dynamic trio! ✨ Necessities for your beauty routines 🙌🏼 – The Rose Gold Elixir (white) is an all natural moisturizer that can be used with or without makeup. It is super light weight, and ideal as a daytime moisturizer. It has a very pleasant uplifting citrus aroma. ⠀ The Unicorn Essence (purple) is a skincare serum that is rich in antioxidants and can be used either as a makeup primer, or before applying moisturizer. If used as skincare, the Unicorn Essence would be applied first, then either of our Elixirs (moisturizer). But if used with makeup, the Unicorn Essence would be applied first as a primer for the skin, or as an effective eyeshadow primer.⠀ The Volcanic Elixir (black) is ideal as a night time moisturizer, as it is a little heavier, and has more of a strong earthy/nutty scent. However, it contains exceptional healing and repairing properties for your skin, that your skin absorbs overnight.⠀ 🔻⠀ 🌎 #SHOPNOW ➡️⠀ -⠀ #farsali #farsalicare #rosegoldelixir #unicornessence #volcanicelixir

Other products I’m looking forward to are the Faux Blushers and the Skin Tint (Concealer).

Skin Potions

I don’t know if you’ve been seeing this a lot on your Facebook new feed too, but people are going crazy of Skin Potion’s Tomato Serum. It’s said to cure a lot of skin problems like acne and also brightens up your complexion.

I also plan to try on their Concush Concealer because they’ve marketed it as both a blemish and an under-eye concealer while also being waterproof and formulated with a ‘skin-tightening effect’. Their Meowliner is probably the most interesting one of them all because of its double-ended structure, one end is a felt tip applicator and the other end is a triangular felt stamp for easy wing application.

Finally!! An out of this world product has reached our planet! 🌙🌌 Introducing!! MEOW
Catliner 🐱
An innovative two way eyeliner. You can now just stamp the winged line and continue the stroke with its eyeliner pen tip! 😍 Easy right? Do your catliner in just seconds! 💕⭐️ –

Local lipstick brand Colourette has been quiet for a while but they did become popular last 2016. I also heard they have top-of-the-line lipstick formulas that you won’t be able to resist and won’t budge in the hot weather. They have shades that are exact dupes of your favorite MAC lipsticks plus they stay on pretty well. All products are paraben-free, gluten-free, and vegan-friendly.

Pink Sugar

Pink Sugar is another local brand that has gained a lot of popularity after collaborating with Project Vanity, the top beauty resource site in the country. What makes Pink Sugar notable is their wide array of products, from liquid lipsticks to a whole eyeshadow palette. Though cheap, Pink Sugar’s quality of products is something else.

If I were to pick one product from Pink Sugar, it would be their blushes. For only P299, it’s well-pigmented and complement nicely with Filipino skin tones.
