September 2016 K-Beauty Picks​​

It’s September and we’re back with this month’s K-beauty picks! What is a better way to start the Christmas season than by introducing amazing products into your beauty kits? This month, we’ve picked some practical and essential products for any make-up and skincare enthusiast. Let’s get into it!

Here are our top K-beauty picks for September:

Banila Co. It Shiny Shimmer Base (P865)

This base is perfect for those who would like to achieve that moisturized and glowing look! It doesn’t make the skin look too greasy or oily either. This is a soft beige pink tinted base that leaves your skin looking bright and beautifully radiant. It can be applied directly onto the parts of the face you’d like to highlight or you can also mix this into your foundation. Either way, it will leave dull-looking skin illuminated!

Holika Holika Wonder Drawing Skinny Eyebrow Pencil (P385)

With the precise tip of this eyebrow pencil, you will easily be able to shape your brows the way you’d like! This product comes in four colors to easily match dark brown to light brown hair. The staying power of this product is great as well. With the usual humid weather, fading eyebrows are a problem no more.

The Face Shop Natural Sun Eco Photogenic Sun Blur (P695)

Aside from the humid weather, you can try but you can’t escape from the sun here in Manila. What’s more important than protecting your precious skin from its harmful and damaging effects?  What if you could do that and prime your skin as well? This product doesn’t only have some really cute packaging (Kakaotalk fans, what’s up?), but it also serves two purposes as well! It’s a sun screen to help protect your skin from sun damage but it also serves as a primer with its blurring and brightening effect. The product feels very light on the skin and does not leave it oily either.

Etude House Big Cover Cushion Concealer (P687)

This creamy concealer gives the appearance of clear and flawless skin. It comes in six colors – three of which are color correcting concealers that help brighten up and even out the skin tone. The product helps cover up pimples, dark circles and blemishes. It also adheres to the skin really well. It’s also very easy to use and the packaging is travel-friendly too.

Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel (P245)


This is probably one of the most versatile beauty products in the market with Aloe Vera as its main ingredient. This soothing gel may be used as a moisturizing cream, base make-up, hair treatment, and even nail essence. It helps soothe and relax swollen eyes and can cool down sunburns as well. You can even use it to moisturize your body and it will result in smooth and soft skin. It can even be used as an after shave cream! The Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel steps its versatility game up in the beauty department and for such a reasonable price too.
