June 2024 was a rollercoaster of moody weather, swinging from gloomy rains to unexpected bursts of sunshine. With such unpredictable skies, keeping our spirits (and our looks) up was no small feat.

Luckily, the NYLON Manila team found the perfect beauty buys to brighten even the dreariest of days. From nail care to makeup must-haves, these beauty essentials became our go-to companions, ensuring we stayed fresh and feeling fabulous no matter what the weather threw our way.

Cuticle Oil Manicure Pen

In an era where Russian Manicures and Soft Gel extensions are hot trends for Gen Z, nail and hand care should be emphasized as well. I would highly suggest purchasing cuticle oil, particularly the travel sized, pen-shaped one to bring around with you. It’s affordable, easy to use, smells nice, and leaves your nails looking shiny and strong. – Bianca Lao, Brand Associate

ISSY x Slo Lopez Curated Eyeshadow Palette

As a fan of Slo’s work as a makeup artist, the ISSY x Slo Lopez collection was a must-buy for me this June. The formulas and colors were made with so much care and thought, and the customizable eyeshadow palette makes choosing what goes with your vibe easy and fun! – Abby Chua, Art Intern

Opera My Lash Advanced Mascara

If you hate the look of spider lashes and have been on the hunt for a mascara that will make them look fluffy and defined but still natural, then look no further. This mascara has a skinny wand that helps apply the product lightly and evenly while also making it easier to avoid accidentally marking your face. It’s also waterproof enough for daily use but not so much so that it’s a nightmare to remove – as long as you’re not having an existential crisis ugly-cry sesh, this is the droid you’re looking for. – Maggie Batacan, Editor-in-Chief

Peri Pera Speedy Skinny Browcara

Bleached brows are in, and we are here for it. The Peri Pera Speedy Skinny Browcara holds and tames brows while also changing their color, giving a softer and more innocent look. You should definitely try incorporating this into your daily makeup routine.

Rom&nd Glasting Melting Balm

The Rom&nd Glasting Melting Balm has been in my cart for a while, and when I finally bought it, it did not disappoint. It’s pigmented, easy to apply, lasts pretty long, and leaves a stain, making it my new go-to lippie. – Nica Glorioso, Features Writer

Vice Cosmetics One&Done Sticks

As a huge fan of the One&Done Sticks, I was pretty bummed when they were discontinued. So, you can imagine my excitement when Vice Cosmetics brought them back! The best part? They now come with a built-in brush that’s actually super handy. The creamy, blendable formula we all loved is still there, making it a permanent fixture in my beauty routine.

My go-to shades as a morena are Dusk (contour), Flutter (blush), and Push (bronzer)! – Precy Tan, Copywriter
