I say this now, but I’m sure it will be, Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty is the best makeup brand of 2017! Why? Because it has 40 freakin’ foundation shades, meaning all women of color will find a foundation that will match their skin. Plus, they’re really easy to get. You don’t live in the US? No worries, I listed below where you can buy Fenty Beauty in Philippines. No need to tell more about this exciting new brand especially its founder, Robyn Rihanna Fenty (yes, that’s Rihanna’s real name) because who doesn’t know her?
Where to buy Fenty Beauty?
1. Sephora Philippines – Fenty Beauty is exclusively sold in Sephora worldwide (and in Harvey Nichols in the UK). But just in case you still don’t know it yet, Sephora is now available in the Philippines, at least online. And there are three payment options: 1) PayPal, 2) Credit Card, and 3) Dragon Pay which accepts over-the-counter bank payment, online bank payments, and GCash. I already mentioned this in my post “7 Online Beauty Shops in the Philippines.”
Another thing, Sephora Philippines offers free shipping on orders above Php1300 and you don’t have to worry about customs tax. They will ship it directly to your house, no extra cost, because they have a local courier partner. And delivery takes around 10-15 days.
2. Make Up Pro Store – I’ve mentioned this store many times on this site already because they really sell a vast array of beauty brands, and they’re authentic. And of course, it’s impossible they will not include Fenty Beauty in their store. You can buy directly to their website, they accept PayPal and bank deposit for payments. Or you could visit their store in Makati City, located in Tower 2, Laureano di Trevi Towers, Chino Roces Ave. Besides Fenty Beauty, they also sell other highly covetable brands like The Ordinary skincare.
3. Makeup Authority PH – If you want a faster shipping, something local, your only choice is those Instagram resellers. I trust this reseller because I already bought products from them and their products are authentic. This where I actually bought my first Kylie Lip Kit. (NOTE: This is not a sponsored post. They don’t know I endorse them on my blog).
How to Spot Fake Fenty Beauty?
If you prefer to buy to other Instagram and Shopee resellers please be cautious. Fenty Beauty is new but I’ll assure you in a few months, or probably just a few weeks, knockoffs from China will start to appear online. To be safe, know the real prices of the products online.
Fenty Beauty cost around $34 for the foundations (see the US prices below) or around Php1950 in Sephora Philippines. If you found a retailer online selling it less than those prices, there’s a 99.99% chance it’s fake. And please, don’t believe it’s “stolen” from the factory, or a “factory reject” because THERE’S NO SUCH THING. That’s just the story the fake manufacturers say to make you buy. Factories destroy the products if they reject them.
Plus, how will you feel if you work on something so hard and then someone else copied your work and sell them pretending to be yours? If that reason will still not convince you, maybe knowing that human urine and rat feces were found in fake makeup will turn you off.
