Beauty Backstage: Getting to know Essence, Catrice, Flormar, Jordana, and Deborah Milano + Must- Try Products

I was invited to the launch of Deborah Milano, Catrice, Essence, Flormar, and Jordana just this week. It's always nice to get to discover and rediscover new brands and products! I'll also share with you the must- try products from each brand.

The event was more of a reintroduction for me as I was introduced to these brands sometime around 3 years ago. Won't mind reintroducing them again especially to my new readers!

Flormar is a Turkish brand of makeup. Their best- sellers are the foundation; I think it is pretty obvious in this photo! :D You gotta try their Soft Mat Foundation. IMO, it's a close dupe of Kat Von D Lock It Foundation!

Visit FLORMAR PHILIPPINES on Facebook for more information about this brand.

Jordana is an American drugstore brand; it's been around and I remember buying it from dollar stores, but it's now available in department stores. People have been raving about these two: 2-in-1 Concealer and Foundation and Sweet Cream Matte, which is apparently a very affordable but very good liquid matte lipstick.

Essence is from France and this is one of my favorite drugstore beauty brands because 1. Selection is diverse 2. Products are affordable 3. Line up is up to date 4. Products work! My forever favorite is the Stay All Day Translucent Fixing Powder (it used to be Fix 'N Matte); it became All About Mat and was converted into pressed form, but I'm glad that the old version is back! 2 in 1 Eyeshadow and Liner stick is a new favorite of mine; just discovered how pigmented and long- wearing it is so I'm making it a must- have!

Catrice is a German brand of cosmetics and it's very trendy and looks a tad bit PRO at the same time. Nude Illusion Loose Powder is a classic, global favorite; I used it already and I realized why! Will review it soon. Another best- seller is the Camouflage Concealer, a heavy duty, full coverage concealer that will cover skin imperfections effectively.

Joe Of London is an affordable fragrance brand that uses essential oils from Paris. Lime Mousse and White Iris are my favorites!

With the lovely team of Bhagis, the company that brought us these wonderful products.

Will upload a haul video soon! In the meantime, follow my channel at therealbeautyjunkee on Youtube. :D
