Freyja is a new beauty website in the Philippines in which you can shop for high-end makeups and skincare like Jeffree Star Cosmetics, KORA Organics, Peter Thomas Roth and a lot more. They also have their flagship retail store located at Glorietta 2 if you like to get up close on the products that they cater.
I went ahead and placed an order for myself at Freyja’s website. The shipping was fast and I did not have any major issues upon ordering. The transaction went on smooth. Here are what I got:
1. The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes
2. Ellana Makeup Brush Cleaner
3. Sample size of Benefit Porefessional Pearl Primer
I have tested out all the products that I got and so far my favorite would be the Makeup Brush Cleaner.
The Balm Meet Matte Hughes
I got mine in the shade Sincere. This liquid lipstick has been in the market for a long while now and my friend is raving about it so I just went ahead and ordered it. The formula is good. It is not drying to the lips. One thing I note is the opacity. You need to build up the color to get that perfect opacity that you want. (As for me who has dark lips)
Ellana Makeup Brush Cleaner
It is a sweet surprise that Freyja also carries local brand which is the Ellana Cosmetics. I’m a heavy brush user as I love powder products. I do have a decent amount of brushes but they go dirty after a few use so I decided to snag this makeup brush cleaner for spot cleaning. It has oil particles in it which I think is the main cleanser. It has a nice smell that won’t put you off when you spray. It does the job of cleaning but in all honesty, I still prefer deep cleaning my brushes. This is just only for the quick spot cleaning when you do not want your powder products’s color to be altered by the residue in your brushes. Worth the try.
Benefit Porefessional Pearl Primer
This is good but nothing in has wow-ed me. I seriously wouldn’t pay a large fraction for a primer so this one is a pass for me.
Additionally, the package came in a pink pouch with a pink thank you card. It is so cute!
I might buy more from Freyja’s site when i’ve had my wallet replenished. High-end brands really aren’t making the cut for me. I need to work my ass off more to afford them. Haha!
