Metro Beauty Haul: This Month’s Editor-Approved Picks

Our beauty editor sifted through tons of products to give you this month's must-buys

There's a joy that comes from discovering new products to add to your beauty kit. From a new lipstick that totally flatters your skin tone, a fragrance that is able to represent the mood you're in for the season, to an eyeliner that makes your eyes look extra special. We beauty girls are always on the lookout for the next best thing, so we rounded up our new batch of new must-try makeup and skincare picks so you, too can start adding to cart. Enjoy!


Sunnies Face Lash Seeker

Sunnies Face launched its newest product for Asian lashes—those that are naturally straight or downward curving. It has an ultra-slim wand with 800 feathery bristles that allow flawless separation of every lash strand, to give it weightless, clump-free lengthened lashes. If you're looking for volume, this may not be the product for you, but otherwise, it's a great option for those with naturally dense lashes that need more length and definition!

Vice Cosmetics One & Done Sticks

Made for girlies on-the-go, the new One & Done Sticks are creamy blushes, brontour, and contour sticks with their own built-in brushes for effortless application. It applies on smoothly, is very easy to blend (even with your fingers), and is long-lasting. We think it's also great for beach getaways where you'd want a more natural finish. Available in 10 Pinay skin tone-friendly shades!

Kanebo Skin Harmonizer

Heritage Japanese brand Kanebo reintroduces itself to the local market with a powerful skincare product that will supercharge your skincare routine. The Skin Harmonizer is a dual-phase lotion with advanced targeted sebum trapping technology. Their long-time research has brought to light a new fact about sebum—a certain type of component called unsaturated fatty acids in sebum is related to a decline in the skin's barrier function, causing dryness and roughness. Since dry skin and oily skin often present problems for the skin, Kanebo's new approach of trapping UFAs while hydrating dry, dull skin offers us this solution. Get to maintain healthy, harmonized skin with a good balance of water and oil.

Sunplay Ultra Shield SPF 130 PA++++

While the heat rages on, it's only right to arm ourselves with the best sun protection out there. And the Japanese are known to produce some of the best in this category. Case in point: Sunplay's Ultra Shield line of sun protection. Offering high SPF and PA protection, the Ultra Shield features the brand's "watery liquid" formula from Japan for a lightweight, non-greasy, and transparent finish on application. It absorbs quickly, is water resistant, and perfect for outdoor activities as the summer continues. It's also fragrance and colorant-free, boasting of Solarex-3 technology, defending against sun damage, skin aging, and dryness.

Maybelline SuperStay Matte Lumi Foundation

Now if there's one foundation to absolutely own right now, it's this one by Maybelline! It removes all the things we hate about foundation—heaviness, creasing, cake-ing, oiliness, and patchiness. Instead, it's light as air with its 27% lighter formula than normal foundation. Its selling point is the Lumi-Matte finish—a matte look but with a glowy, luminescent, diffused glow that lasts up to 30 hours. While no one wants to wear makeup that long, it's powerful enough to stay on all day when you need it to. Buildable, transfer-proof, waterproof, sweat proof. It's an absolute must-buy!
