1. Flower Knows

This is my personal favorite and the one that’s taking over TikTok right now. Launched in 2016, Flower Knows provides a collection of makeup items and tools in fairytale-inspired packaging that celebrates all things dreamy and girly. Unlike in the early 2010s when we were used to products with cute packaging but the quality sucks, this brand offers quality formulations at affordable prices.

Bestsellers are the Moonlight Mermaid Five-Color Jewelry Eyeshadow, an eye makeup palette that contains five matte and shimmery shades housed in a jewel-toned mermaid-inspired case. There’s also the Strawberry Rococo Cloud Lip Cream that features a highly pigmented and creamy formula in vintage Rococo-esque packaging.

WHERE TO BUY: Flower Knows has official Lazada and Shopee Philippines pages. For global shipping, you can purchase them in YesStyle. They also have an official e-commerce website but they ship to limited countries.
