VLOGGER PR BOX UNBOXING (Libreng Makeup for Vloggers!)

One of the perks of being a vlogger (and a blogger) is that we get we stuff. Depending on which topic or genre one is blogging about, one often get items and products in that category. Because I mostly do beauty, fashion and lifestyle posts, I do get quite a number of makeup and skincare items. 

In this blog post, I will be sharing some of the sponsored items I got in February 2018.

While most brands and sponsors don't really require influencers to post all items they get for free, I personally believe there are 3 reasons why we feel we have to post them anyway.
1.) FOR THE VIEWERS - Aside from wanting to be entertained, most readers and viewers these days turn to blogs and vlogs for product updates, recommendations and reviews. Influencers post the items so their followers would know the latest trend and could also get an idea what to buy and what to try next.
2.) FOR THE BRAND - This is a personal opinion but I think one of the reasons influencers post the free stuff is to somehow thank the brand for sending them the item. It's a very simple act of thanking someone who gave you something, don't you think?
3.) FOR THE INFLUENCER - One of the top reasons why influencers exist is to "influence" their audience. What better way to do so than by recommending items and products they have recently got, tried and liked!

I personally am always grateful to brands that sponsor because I admit these are things I won't be able to get for myself had I not been a blogger.

MAYBELLINE Matte Metallic Lipsticks 

The FACE SHOP Flat Velvet and Glossy Lipstick 

iHerb is an online shop. Personally, I don't like their shop as they are quite pricey compared to other onlines. They do offer free shipping but it would take months for the item/s to arrive. If you want the parcel to be delivered within days, you'd have to pay and it's pricey! I only ordered because I really wanted to try the Aztec Clay, which wasn't available in other online shops I know or local Healthy Options here in the Philippines.

VICE Cosmetics Lippies

Colorette Cosmetics 

Esfolio Philippines 
Check out their online shop here

That's everything I got for free for the month of February. Like what I have mentioned above, I am really grateful to each and every item I get no matter how small it is. I hope you enjoy my haul videos as much as I enjoy filming them!
