A Beauty Starter Kit to Consider This 2023

Here’s a beauty starter kit that will stay by your side (and on your face) through the new year



2022 provided various ways to elevate one’s look. From siren eyes to clean girl makeup—you name it, we’ve seen (and tried) it all! Honestly though, these are unachievable without a killer beauty starter kit.


Thankfully, 2022 also made way for innovative Filipino brands to step into the limelight. With pride, we gathered seven global-worthy local products that you can consider when assembling your beauty starter kit. We already know you’ll be repurchasing these, so we’re lucky to have found nothing over P1,000.


Happy Skin Second Skin Tinted Moisturizer (P899)

Skincare is an important part of doing your makeup—it’s been said many times for a reason. Luckily, we have the Happy Skin Second Skin Tinted Moisturizer!



Its sheer to buildable coverage can even out your skin and blur imperfections. It’s fortified with hyaluronic acid, niacinamide and squalane. Need we say more? It does all of this while protecting your skin with SPF 20. Happy skin indeed!

With a slim brush, this mascara can precisely reach each strand of hair, making it quick and easy to apply. There’s no need for you to do that face when applying mascara (you know…the one where your eyebrows reach the middle of your forehead and your lips form an O). Though this was made for lower lashes, they work great on the upper lashes, too.

Clocheflame Lip Muse (P399)

Clocheflame said it best: the Lip Muse “has the benefits of a lip oil, the softness of a balm and the power of lipstick.”



Being buildable and lightweight, it gives both coverage and comfort. Great if you’re only starting with makeup or if you’ve been doing it long enough to know how important hydrated lips are!

Vice Cosmetics Keriboom Boom Pa-Mist (P295)

What good would a look be if it doesn’t last? Good thing the Vice Cosmetics Keriboom Boom Pa-Mist can help you slay all day!
