Thinking of doing self-care before the month ends by spending a bit of your suweldo on yourself? Cosmo.ph editors Ira Nopuente and Tisha Caedo share a roundup of luxe beauty items that they fell in love with, which you can also add to your kikay kit!
A brightening and purifying sheet mask.
"This sheet mask can do more than just hydrate your skin. It will also soothe redness, tighten pores, brighten your skin, and get rid of pimple-causing bacteria. It's worth every peso!" - Tisha, Assistant Beauty Editor
TRY: Skin Inc Soothe-n-Purify Black Gold Mask, P681, Sephora.ph
An energizing face mist.
"The classic makeup setting spray just got a delish upgrade: It's now infused with a yummy, take-me-to-the-beach coconut scent!" - Ira, Associate Beauty Editor
TRY: MAC Fix+ Spray in Coconut, P1,250 Glorietta
An eye mask that takes care of dark circles.
"I'm obsessed with anything eye care, so I was psyched when I found out about this product. It's been a part of my weekend multi-masking routine since I got it. Sometimes, I apply it on nights when I know I'm going to have less than eight hours of snooze time." - Ira, Associate Beauty Editor
TRY: The Body Shop Drops of Youth Eye Mask, P1,395, SM Megamall
A new take on a cult fave.
"I like hydrating or radiance-boosting primers more than pore-filling ones, but this one combines the two and gives such a smooth, glowing finish to your skin." - Tisha, Assistant Beauty Editor
TRY: Benefit The POREfessional Pearl Primer, P1,900, Robinsons Magnolia
A clutch-friendly red lippie.
"I use this cool-toned red as a lip stain and cheek tint and it is THE. BEST. The formula is long-wearing and matte, but not drying. Plus, the size is perfect to bring everywhere!" - Tisha, Assistant Beauty Editor
TRY: Tom Ford Boys & Girls Lip Color in Luciano, P1,960, Rustan's Makati
A foundation as light as water.
"Made with 80 percent water, this lightweight funda can be used like a tinted moisturizer for every day, or built up for more coverage on special occasions." - Tisha, Assistant Beauty Editor
TRY: Make Up For Ever Water Blend Foundation, P2,700, SM Megamall
A refreshing moisturizer.
"When you live in humid Manila, heavy creams will just leave your face sticky and your pores clogged. Plus, I've got oily skin—it's sometimes hard to find a moisturizer that won't cause breakouts. Thankfully, this tub answers all my skin needs: It prevents early signs of aging and counteracts damage caused by sudden weather and temperature changes." - Ira, Associate Beauty Editor
TRY: Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Cooling Gel, P3,350, Rustan's The Beauty Source
A long-lasting foundation that doesn't feel like a mask.
"Finally, a long-wearing foundation (It claims to stay on for 16 hours max!) that feels super light and grants your skin a dewy and youthful finish. I also love that the shade doesn't look too yellow on me." - Ira, Associate Beauty Editor
TRY: NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation, price available upon request, Rustan's The Beauty Source
