Pretty Angel Shoppe Haul + First Impressions

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is safe despite the heavy rains we are experiencing here in Metro Manila, as well the ones affected by the earthquake in Cebu and Bohol. My prayers are with everyone. Anyways, I just wanted to make this quick post regarding the items that I received from Pretty Angel Shoppe a few days ago.

Pretty Angel Shoppe sells Singapore authentic cosmetics and perfumes. What does it mean when a product is Singapore authentic? They are not authentic per se, as they are actually manufactured with the same packaging as the original ones. Is it fake? Some people call them "fake" because they are imitation of products like Benefit, Urban Decay, Too Faced, etc. but they are also quality products and in a more affordable price.

I am not saying that I support knock-off or imitation products. These items are Class A replicas, and if you were budget constrained this may be a good option for you. It does not mean that these Singapore authentic products are not good or safe, you just have to be careful which ones to use/purchase. Do not ever purchase fake skincare and face/base products, as these are the ones that comes in direct contact with your skin. Be careful as well with mascaras, eyeliners, eyeshadows and lipstick. Test it out first and if you see any adverse reactions, stop using the product.

Luckily I did not have any allergic reactions from the products that I got, and the quality is just amaze-balls. Let's take a look at them one by one, yes?

Hello Kitty Kabuki Brush

This brush is very dense and very soft to the skin! I have not noticed any shedding or foul smell from this product. This is what I use to buff in my Ben Nye setting powder after foundation application. It also comes in a good size for travel. Best part? It is cheaper than most kabuki brushes in the market. This baby is a steal for ₱170 only.Definitely a must have.

Benefit Brows A-go-go

Some may think this is a bit pricey for a brow product, but let me tell you that this is a quality product within the ₱500 limit. It comes with 2 brow powders, 1 wax, 1 highlighter, 1 pink corrector, an eyeliner, brush applicator and tweezers.

Here are the swatches:

Brow powders and wax

Eyeliner, highlighter and corrector

I use the wax first to outline my brows and fill in some sparse areas, I then set it with the darker powder shade. It works amazingly for me and surprising lasts me the whole day even without using a brow mascara or a brow gel. I have not yet to use the eyeliner, highlighter and the corrector (which looks like a lipstick for me) but I think the brow powders and the wax is worth the value of this product.

Benefit Lipcream

When I found out the actual price of this I was blown away. They kinda remind of the Excel Paris Lip Creams (reviewed here) but this is better! It doesn't smell like paint, it goes on very smoothly and dries to a semi-matte texture and it does not dry out my lips!

I am also inlove with this color that I received, it is a gorgeous pink-red color. From the packaging I was able to tell that there are a bit of shimmer from this lip cream, but once applied they are barely noticeable.

And those are the products that I got from Pretty Angel Shoppe. Please go ahead and check them out if you are interested. Aside from makeup products and perfumes, they also sell authentic Flawless Papaya Soaps and the most coveted Naturactor Concealer. You may also check them out on their Instagram account.

Plus, watch out because we will be having a special giveaway just for you guys! (wink) Excited? I am!

Thank you so much for reading Pinay Beauties! Stay fabulous, and goodluck!
