WHEN IN MANILA, cosmetics are always fun to play with for all the ladies out there whether you’re six, sixteen, or even sixty. But with the hard times coming sometimes beauty junkies out there wonder if cosmetics are still on the must splurge on list. Fret not When In Manila beauty junkies because Carmen Clare is here to save the day.


Carmen Claire, an online local cosmetic brand, offers cosmetics that are up to par with high end brands like MAC and Shu Uemura but have price tags similar to drugstore brands like Maybelline and Revlon. I was so lucky because just a few days before Christmas, I received a sparkly loot bag from Carmen Claire with their sparkliest products to date!










I must say all of Carmen Claire’s products are amazing! So let me introduce you guys to each of the sparkly cosmetics of Carmen Claire.
