5 Beauty Products We've Been Constantly Lusting On

We're all for the upsized life experiences but we gotta be upsize-ly honest as well - we can't always get nice things. To get this goal, we always make sure that we prioritize things well to maintain our lifestyle.

Hooooweveeerr... There will always be products that tease us into wanting to get our grabby hands on them just because they're too pretty for life. I mean, #goals wouldn't be invented if it weren't for these desires.

So here's our list of 8 beauty products we wish we had but we don't *sad*.

Nearly Everything SK-II

The first thing you'd see when you visit SK-II's website is freaking Cate Blanchett's face. If that doesn't scream premium, then I don't know what else does. SK-II is a Japanese skin care brand that boasts products filled with natural ingredients that brings miracles to the skin (and their packaging looks so gorgeous).

SK-II LXP Ultimate Revival Cream 50g ($385), available online and on SK-II kiosks at The SM Store Beauty Section

SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence 50ml (P 10,016), available at Sephora and at The SM Store Beauty Section

And they're so EXPENSIVE. Now, note we said expensive not *pricey* cause technically, anyone with the purchasing power can afford this but right now, it's literally out of our budget. So in the meantime, we'll be lusting on these some more because skin care is #LYF.

SK-II Facial Treatment Oil 50ml (P 7,995), available on Sephora and at The SM Store Beauty Section

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence 330ml ($290), available online and at The SM Store Beauty Section

For Your Nails Only Polish

That is literally the name of the brand - For Your Nails Only. So don't expect to put the product anywhere else. But just look at how gorgeous the colors are OMG.

They're not a household name unlike your usual Opi and Essence and Jessica because you can only get For Your Nails Only in freaking Scotland. And because it is a Scottish, indie brand. Yep. You have to reach far for these polishes. And they're so hard to get even now as we're typing, their website is down until 4th of June for holiday. WHYYYYY???

We're loving their products because they're out of the ordinary. But in the meantime, we'll be lusting on them simply because it's so hard to get your hands on one of the polishes.

*Yeah so we're waiting 'til their site is back too. So while waiting, check them out on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Glossier Makeup

Alright. We're pretty sure you've heard of Glossier and at least tried to pronounce their brand (it's GLO-SEEYUR, not GLO-SEEYAY - girl, it ain't French).

Glossier Stretch Concealer 5ml (P 1,150), available at BeautyMNL

Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint 30ml (P 1,600), available at BeautyMNL

Claiming to be a beauty brand inspired by real life, Glossier offers a whole bunch of skin products but we're just dying to get our hands on some makeup! They have a wide variety of shades to choose from and keeps true to their minimalist vibe by offering only the main essentials.

Glossier Cloud Paint Cream Blush 10ml, available for P 1,200 at BeautyMNL and P 1,350 at Calyxta

Glossier Generation G Matte Lipstick 2g (P 1,150), available at BeautyMNL

The hype for Glossier didn't get so big in the Philippines and we're both happy and sad about it cause 1.) you can't really just buy them when you want to ~sad~, and 2.) there seemed to be not too much fake replicas of the product going around ~happy~.

We're so in love and lust with this brand because of their beautiful, minimalist packaging and really good quality of products. But in the meantime, we'll stick to drooling over them online cause it's so difficult to get a legit product cause they don't even ship to here *ugly cries*. 

We're linking you BeautyMNL, Calyxta, and The Makeup Bar Manila's page but we're not holding assurance for the current availability of Glossier products.

Real Techniques Complete Brush Set

You can't be crazy about makeup without being crazy about your tools. We'll keep this one nice and simple - we love Real Technique brushes because they last long and apply product really well which you probably already all know. 

Real Techniques Stippling Brush (P 549.68), available online, in selected Watsons stores and selected The SM Store Beauty Sections

Real Techniques Flat Contour Brush (P 1,154.33), availableonline, in selected Watsons stores and selected The SM Store Beauty Sections

We're lusting over the whole set but can't get them because they're usually not all available + can be a little too expensive. We just want to get the whole existing set. Is that even so difficult to get? To be real though, there's so much brushes. *more ugly crying*


Tom Ford Beauty


We just have two words for this - TOM. FORD. It's ultimately designer so this is definitely something we can just end up lusting on. It's all possible words for beautiful and divine and gorgeous but at the same time, not only are the collections expensive, they're legit PRICEY! And thank goodness they're not easily available locally because we might just end up not paying rent for a month or something.

Tom Ford Beauty Traceless Foundation SPF 15 ($82), available online

Tom Ford Beauty Lip Color Matte ($53), available online

Sometimes, you know, you just can't afford P 4,000+ foundations and P 5,000+ bronzers cause it's just not practical.
