Have you ever gone to makeup heaven? I just did when I paid a visit at Make Up Pro! I share the same sentiments with everyone who went to this place, I would bet on that! Indeed, this place is heaven to every beauty enthusiast.
This place is packed with hard to find cosmetics. It may cost a bit compared to those bought overseas but it sure is cheaper than those sold at the malls here in the Philippines and those sold at online stores around.
MakeUp Pro has two branches, one in Makati and the other in Quezon City. I was lucky to visit both stores, but I failed to take pictures on the later one. Allow me to brief you through all the good stuff this store has to offer.
As soon as you enter to the unit, you will be greeted with this chic sign of the store - very fitting for what the store has to offer. And right then and there you will be awe struck with shelves of great beauty finds!
From make up to skin care to hair care - this place is fully packed! It took me a few hours before I could finally decide which products I'll be taking home! Yes, that long - and they were too nice to let me feast that long! Special thanks to Ms. Mia!! :)
Hard to source items may be found in this shelf like this Eve Pearl Concealer and MAQPro Concealer Palette. Items for airbrush makeup like that from Temptu may also be seen.
This basket holds a bevy of shades from Inglot so you can customize your palettes to your hearts content.
Another great item that they hold for a price that is as close to those sold overseas are these lip tars from OCC.
You even have a lot of shades to choose from so make sure you dig in this basket.
My favorite part of the store is this mirror which holds makeup brushes from MakeUp Forever, MAC, Bdellium, Tarte, Urban Decay, and on a shelf nearby, you would see Real Techniques, Hakuhodo brushes and my dream set from Rae Morris.
Below the mirror you would see airbrush compressors and makeup cases like this one from Zuca and Shu Uemura.
On the topmost shelf, you would find hair products from Loreal like the famouse Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hairspray, Tresseme products and Kiehls. You would also find more Temptu Airbrush accessories and compressors. Man! I'll be saving up for that!!
There is also a shelf of Illamasqua products. From blushes, to eye shadow quads, lipsticks and glosses.. You would really have a hard time deciding on which ones to pick. If only I had unlimited funds, I would shop like crazy!
Another great shelf to feast in would be this one full of Nars products. Beside this shelf (not in picture) is another hard to find brand from Kevyn Aucoin. Makeup Books are also sold here.
Another part of the shelf that I went crazy about was the part from MAC (not in picture) and Make Up Forever. I even made a list of products I would purchase the next time I visit the store!
So, I went home with these goodies - and for the record, I have never been this happy shopping for makeup! No kidding! I got Ben Nye's Banana Visgae Luxury Powder, One pot of MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW35, Ben Nye's Total Cover-All Wheel in SK-100, and RCMA's No Color Powder.
