Retail therapy is my thing. There’s a sense of fulfilment, if not satisfaction every time I get a chance to purchase something that I really want- may it be food, fashion or beauty. Lately I find myself shopping more online than in the malls mainly because of 2 things:
1. I get so overwhelmed with all the things I see whenever I enter a store.
2. I am indecisive. I always feel pressured to make an immediate decision, so often times I ended up buying on impulse.
You can say my love affair for online shopping has started because of my being indecisive. I like having many options but I also like getting to know each one of them so I can fully understand what value it can give to me. If I were to shop in a mall, I most likely know what I already want. But with online shopping, it gives me the luxury to browse and learn more about each product.
And when it comes to beauty products, I am very meticulous. I like to take my time and get acquainted with the brands and products- read the reviews and see the swatches first before I decide to make any purchase. Because unlike buying an apparel (clothes, bags or shoes), you can’t really return a beauty product once you opened it.
I’ve recently discovered another shop to love and that is Beauty MNL. It’s serves me all my beauty cravings on a silver platter, with fresh news sent to my email, making sure I don’t miss out on all things pretty.
Beauty MNL is an online magazine for all things pretty. It offers insightful content tailor-fit to the Filipina lifestyle. Aside from talking about beauty tips, health and wellness and lifestyle, you also get to shop for products that their partner make up mavens, skincare savants, and hair authorities have raved and loved.
Beauty MNL is a brand of Taste Central curators which I’ve also written about HERE. If you already have a Deal Grocer account, you can use it to sign up at Beauty MNL. Click HERE to get started.

5 REASONS WHY I LIKE SHOPPING AT BEAUTY MNL
1. Browsing is pleasing.
The pages load fast and the layout is very pleasing to the eyes. No pop up ads, no distractions. Just the way a shophalic likes it.
2. More than 300 brands to choose from.
You can start shopping by clicking on the categories or checking out the list of brands they carry. If you already have a particular product in mind, just type it in the search box.
3. Shop it, review it.
Each product has a clear description as well as a little background about the brand. You can also check on the reviews made by fellow Beauty MNL shoppers. Do at least 35 products reviews and you get a “Top Reviewer” badge and P500 Beauty MNL credits which you can use on your next shopping spree.
It was easy for me to ADD TO CART because some of the products they carry are part of my wish list. So after much contemplating, I’ve finally picked my faves.
Check out was a breeze. I filled out the necessary details and the next thing I know my order was being processed.
4. Choose your MOP.
There’s certainly no reason for you not to shop now. Aside from the easy breezy checkout process, there’s also options for mode of payment. Credit card, Paypal, bank deposit or cash on delivery. I love it when I don’t have to go out of my way of shop. Talk about the convenience of shopping at the comfort of my own home. All I had to do was click, click and click away!
5. 24 hour delivery within Metro Manila + free shipping for orders P2,000 and up.
Need I say more? 🙂
My loot arrived the morning after and I couldn’t contain myself that I unwrapped it immediately.
There’s nothing more fulfilling than getting the beauty products you’ve been eyeing on for the longest time. In this case, I was lucky I was able to get the Chanels of my choice as well as my very first Nars lipstick. 🙂
Good job Beauty MNL for the awesome service and great shopping experience.
