The beauty world is expanding faster than anyone ever imagined; with more products and collections coming out every year, it’s normal to find that some of them aren’t being talked about enough. While new releases from popular brands such as ColourPop, Bobbi Brown, NARS, Urban Decay, and the like often get hyped up on YouTube and Instagram, they’re not the only brands that come out with quality and holy grail-worthy products.

In an effort to help you broaden your makeup-filled horizon — because there’s nothing wrong with trying out more makeup — here’s a list of seven underrated beauty products that you and everyone else should be talking more about and trying out.


ZOEVA Graphic Eyes + Black To Earth Eyeliner

ZOEVA Graphic Eyes + Black To Earth Eyeliner, USD9.50 (

Who knew everyone’s favourite makeup brush brand also made a killer black eyeliner? If you find that most black liners smudge on you or don’t stay put on your waterline, give this a shot. Its creamy and pigmented formula will easily glide over your lids and waterline for an opaque finish that is sweat-proof, tear-proof, and waterproof.

Eye Of Horus Brow Define in "Dynasty"

Eye Of Horus Brow Define in "Dynasty", USD25 (

If you, like us, don’t have easy access to Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Brow Wiz, this skinny one from Eye Of Horus is our saviour. Whether you want feathered and textured brows or a glamorous and defined arch, you’ll be able to get it with this one. Plus, this brow pencil lasts forever, so if you want to go swimming, no need to worry about your brows disappearing!


CoverGirl TruBlend Blush

CoverGirl TruBlend Blush, USD9.99 (

With its baked marble formula, you don’t have to spend a ton of moolah to get healthy and rosy cheeks. And if you have large pores on your cheek area, don’t worry, because this blush contains only fine shimmers that will make them appear smoother.

Essence Eyeliner Pen Waterproof

Essence Eyeliner Pen Waterproof, USD2.99 (

Forget about Stila and Kat Von D’s famous eyeliners because this easy-to-use, long-lasting, smudge-proof, and cheap-as-chips liquid liner will give you bold and thin lines without emptying your wallet.


Smashbox Photo Filter Powder Foundation

Smashbox Photo Filter Powder Foundation, USD42 (

Living in year-round tropical weather, we know that it’s more than possible for our foundations to smudge, move, and disappear. Luckily, this powder foundation from Smashbox was created. An extremely velvety powder that’s reminiscent of a cream foundation, its technology will blur any imperfections and fine lines and leave you with a naturally radiant finish. And if you desire fuller coverage, just layer it a second time and you’ve got a pore-less and flawless complexion.

Revlon Volume + Length Magnified Mascara

Revlon Volume + Length Magnified Mascara, USD8.49 (

This blacker-than-black mascara provides instant volume and length, thanks to the fibers in the formula. The best part? It’s smudge-proof and it holds a curl well so you won’t have to worry about your lashes drooping by the end of the day.


Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss in “Oil Slick”

Butter London Eye Gloss in "Oil Slick", USD24 (

For anyone who desires glossy, metallic, and wet-looking eyelids, Oil Slick from Butter London will deliver that and more. It gives a light wash of colour on the lids, but, when layered, transforms into a taupe, blue, and violet combination. You also don’t have to worry about this jelly formula creasing on your lids because once it dries, it’s not going anywhere.

Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach will soon relinquish her crown. A new queen will take over for her, but it's not too late to celebrate the lady who won the world over because she is “confidently beautiful with a heart.” As a tribute, here's a list of Pia's best beauty moments.


Sultry and Smokey

It's no doubt that Pia can wear any type of look. So donning a sultry, smokey eye look, as seen above, is effortless for her. Take cues from Queen P and use browns instead of dark greys and black for a look you can pull off even for daytime.

Bold and Beautiful

Pia's a known risk-taker, and it shows in the looks she sports. Never to shy away from anything bold, Pia wears a dark lip colour in time for winter. The weather's still a bit cool in our part of the world, albeit not as cold as others', so take advantage of it and swipe on some vampy lipstick.


Classic Meets Edgy

Experimenting on different looks is normal for Pia, who also moonlights as a model. Case in point: the time she traded her long locks for a short, blunt bob for a shoot. Despite her makeup being a classic take on the red lip, the hairstyle gave it an edgy twist. Want to sport a new 'do this year? Get on it. Here are some looks you can choose from.

Easy Breezy

We love makeup as much as the next person, but we're also fans of looking “natural.” Pia achieved how every girl would like to look on a daily basis in the photos above: well-rested and happy. So if you feel like it, go for something simple: lengthen those lashes and put a juicy shade of peachy brown on your lips.


Undeniably Regal

Pia has donned a lot of different looks during her reign as Miss U, but our favorite beauty moment from her remains to be the one when she won the crown. We love it even more because she was the one who did her makeup that night. She looked absolutely regal and glamorous.
