My First Ever MakeUp Haul from BeautyMNL

Having a full-time job and personal tasks is obviously no joke. As for me, I’d rather sleep or rest the entire day than go outside to shop. This is why online stores are my number 1 confidant when it comes to shopping as I mostly rely on ordering my shoes, clothes, skincare products, etc. online. I find it more convenient and carefree. Just the thought of traffic when commuting stress the hell out of me already. Haha.

Just last week, I was surprised to wake up with a message from a known online beauty company for a collaboration where I only need to do a test run on their website. My pleasure, of course! BeautyMNL is the No.1 beauty site in the Philippines, where Filipinas can discover something beautiful every day. A major part of BeautyMNL is its Shop, where you can buy a wide range of products perfect for every occasion and situation. They have everything from makeup, skincare, hair care, accessories and a lot more. Wow. It’s like an entire beauty department in a few clicks. Products from famous brands like Maybelline, L’Oreal Paris, Suesh, Cosrx, Innisfree, etc can also be found in BeautyMNL. Imagine you don't need to leave your bed for an Innisfree item! #Superb

I got myself a bunch of makeup products as I am trying to learn how to use one. When it comes to makeup, I am a complete noob. As in 0 knowledge about which is which. As for ordering online, the first thing I check is the review part. The thing I love most from BeautyMNL is their review section called Beauty By You where you’ll find honest product reviews from real-life customers. You’ll find there the top reviews, best rated, most waitlisted and best bargain products. Aside from that, in each product you view, you’ll also find different experiences from recent buyers which is very helpful for newbies like me.

To start off, you need to register first in order to place an order. You only need to enter few details about you then tada! You’re already a member and you can now enjoy perks like free shipping and free items from some brands. Easy peasy! 

Once you’re done, you may now start hoarding products! Haha. Just click Add to Cart for products you want to purchase but make sure to check the drop down for options like color or quantity. If the item is somewhat already sold out and you are pretty much eager to have it once available, you may click Add to Waitlist so you’ll be among the first to know when the product is back in stock.

As for the payment, they accept Credit Card, Paypal, Bank Deposit and Cash on Delivery (within Metro Manila only). As for the delivery time, if you’re from Metro Manila, you can get it within the next business day (does not include Saturday and Sunday). And for those outside MM, items will arrive within 3 to 5 business days (does not include Saturday and Sunday). 

I placed my orders on July 6 and was delivered to my doorstep on July 8. I honestly expected it to arrive after 5 days considering I’m from Cavite. You'll receive an email/text message if the courier is already on its way to your place. 

Once orders are confirmed, you will receive an email from BeautyMNL with the acknowledgement and summary of your orders.

My items arrived safe and sealed! Items are enclosed in a bubbled wrap so you need not to worry just in case. Aside from the items and freebies, you’ll also find inside your receipt and delivery details in hardcopy. 

Now time to check the items I’ve purchased! #Yay! This is my first ever makeup products by the way.
