BeautyMNL.com: Finally a Beauty Destination For Everyone + Haul

I'm a self confessed late bloomer when it comes to make up. I don't know a lot about make ups, nor how to properly apply it, in fact, the only beauty products I use is a powder, lipstick and blush on sometimes. Well, except of course when there's an occasion and there's a make up artist who'll do my look. Although I'm not a beauty expert, I'm a certified beauty enthusiast. I like discovering new products and occasionally make purchases especially my favorites. But I rarely shop for make ups in a physical store. Since I don't know a lot, I need to research and read reviews about a certain product first before buying and it usually takes me a while so buying it online is more convenient for me. And recently, I discovered about BeautyMNL.com, finally a beauty destination for me and I will be sharing with you why it could also be your beauty destination and I'll show you my mini haul, so read on.

What is BeautyMNL?


BeautyMNL is the number 1 and the biggest beauty website in the Philippines. BeautyMNL wants us, Filipinas to feel our most beautiful every single day thus they offer something pretty and new every day! They have their own online magazine section which is called the "Bloom" that features tips, easy how-to's, and great beauty trends from celebrities and beauty gurus. Aside from their magazine they also have their Shop where you can find wide array of beauty products from both local and international brands. 

And here are the reasons why I love BeautyMNL.

1. Curated assortment of over 300 authentic beauty brands including Organics

BeautyMNL carries over 300 beauty brands from both local and international, giving us wide selection of products. This only means that BeautyMNL can cater even to our tightest budget. They also offer promos and discounts from time to time. The great part is, all their products are 100% authentic so no need to worry about getting fake ones.


With their curated "shop" section, shopping is as easy as ABC! Speaking of ABC, they have an alphabetical list of the brands, so you can just click on your favorite brand and it will redirect you to all it's products. They also organized their products according to its categories such as skin care, make up, hair care, organic, nails and scents, accessories and essentials. 

For the Green advocates, organic products from brands like Human Nature, By Nature and more that are  that are gentle, eco-friendly, and baby/kid friendly alternatives to traditional cosmetics are also available at BeautyMNL.

2. Rewarding review system


Aside from the accurate description of each products, they also have reviews from the those who purchased and have used the products. I find this very useful since I mentioned above that I do a lot of reading before actually buying. And to encourage shoppers to make their reviews, BeautyMNL rewards "Top Reviewers" with Php500 worth of credits for every 50 reviews successfully completed until they reach 200 reviews. Not only are reviewers helping other shoppers but they also get rewarded for it, awesome right?

3. "Bloom" - Insightful Online Magazine


Your daily dose of fresh, interesting tips, easy how-to's, and great beauty trends from celebrities and beauty gurus. Something new to discover from time to time that will surely make you feel like a pro!

4. More Payment options including Cash on delivery

You can select your preferred payment option, it can be via Credit Card, Paypal, Bank Deposit or if you don't have any of those mentioned above you can opt for Cash on Delivery.

5. Personal delivery service and Fast Shipping

After successfully placing your order all you have to do is sit back an relax while waiting for it. They have their own delivery service so you are sure that your package will arrive to you in good condition.

The part that I'm impressed the most is their fast shipping! For Metro Manila, you can expect your package within 24 hours or the next business day. For Provinces, it will be within 5 to 7 business days due to the holiday season. They don't ship on weekends.

I placed my order 2AM of October 14, 2016 which is Friday so I already anticipated to receive my order by Monday, October 17 which is my birthday. But around 9AM, I received a text message from BeautyMNL informing me that my order will arrive within the day. Whoa! Seriously? Almost 11AM came and knocking on our doors is my BeautyMNL rider personally handling me my beautiful package! It was like an early birthday present for me! Yey! Can you believe it, just less than 12 hours? You know when they say, that when something is too good to be true, it probably is? Well not this one! It's the fastest online shopping I've experienced so far. 

Alright so I got my package on the 14th of October but it was just last November 8 that I unboxed it and I made a VLOG for that which is on my YouTube Channel. Posting it below as well:


Can you imagine how hard was it for me to resist the temptation of opening the package? Haha! I just had the guilt feeling of opening the package and use the products without blogging about it so I had to resist the temptation. Anyway I would also like to apologize for this super delayed post, on the VLOG is my explanation why. LOL! Moving on, here's my BeautyMNL mini haul which are comprised of products that I haven't used before though they are not relatively the latest products there is. 


Buttery-soft formula applies rich and creamy; delivers vibrant, opaque color payoff; glides onto lips seamlessly for comfortable wear; long-lasting formula with a shine-free, velvety finish.

 I've been eyeing on these ever since it came out, I was just hesitant to buy at first because it may not look good on me since I already have pale lips. But bought it anyway as I wanted to achieve a good natural look for everyday errands.


Covers and conceals pores, fine lines, wrinkles, and other imperfections; absorbs excess oil for a fresh, radiant finish; protects against harmful UV rays and pollution; can be used wet or dry; suitable for all occasions indoors or outdoors.


Foundation is another product that I am hesitant to purchase. I use to hate how oily and sometimes cakey they turn out to be. I was in 2nd year college the last time I've used a foundation and ever since I've only used baby powder. But I'm giving foundation another chance since now I've learned some beauty hacks lol.

An easy, two-step hair treatment designed to revitalize hair. Perfect fo salon-less hair therapy.

My hair was bleached 2 times in just one session last June and since then I never went back to the salon for the maintenance. I know! It totally took a toll on my hair, it was dry and damaged so I bought this, but haven't used it yet. Last week I finally had my hair treated and I need hair treatment once week so I'm going to use this!

As of posting, I have used all the products already except for the hair treatment, hopefully I could post a review about these even just on social media.


Overall, I am pretty much impressed with my BeautyMNL online shopping experience. I didn't have any problem with my transaction with BeautyMNL except that I actually had a hard time deciding what to get haha. I am very indecisive and takes a while to shop, but other than that everything went well. Everything was smooth, from choosing the products through it's organized list, it's unique and beautiful packaging and most of all the superb fast shipping! Finally, an online shopping destination for all my beauty needs! I highly recommend shopping at BeautyMNL.com, and since it's holiday already they have gift bundle promos, discounts, and an exclusive holiday promo of free shipping when you spend at least Php1,500. On regular days, you can take advantage of free shipping for purchases Php2,000 and above. 

Oh and last bu not the least, if you like taking selfies (Selfie what? Lol), you can join BeautyMNL's #selfieMNL contest! Get a chance to win a Printster polaroid of your pretty face and a PHP200  worth of BeautyMNL GC! For the complete mechanics, please click here. Good luck beauties!
