Here’s the second (the third including the Intro) post on MY top Makeup and Beauty stops in Manila. Having been away for 5 years, I really didn’t know where to go to stock up or replenish my makeup and tools/equipment here. So I asked my makeup artist friends and soon found out where the best online and retail store suppliers were. Can’t go wrong by asking the local Pro’s and beauty buffs!
On to the star of this post: Suesh Makeup Toolkit.
It’s pronounced “Sue-Sh” and not as I’d been saying- “Swesh” the past 9 months(!)- giving me away as a newbie, much like my “Tor-on-Toe” pronunciation does of the Canadian “Toron’-O” City where I’ve been based for several years. Anyway, I’m like a kid in a candy store in this place! Everytime I’ve been there. Check out these snaps that I took of their new branch in Alabang Town Center (ATC) at the Mall’s Gardens (wing) last Sunday:
I can’t shop too much because of the luggage-weight limitation going to Toronto, but it made sense to stock up on my disposable wands (a pack of 10pcs for P75/3 packs for P200), powder puffs (stand-out from the rest Leopard print design P70 each), a neat finger glove P400- to protect me from burns when I use my hot curler/straightener on clients; a box of Natural-Look false lashes for my brides (P400-Great deal considering, so far I’ve seen them sold at prices that are more expensive than Toronto (I mean, “T’ron-O” suppliers) and a face guard (P250) to shield client’s face from hairspray- also a good deal, since I cracked the one I had and felt bad for spending on a new one til I found the Suesh ones. Love that they have a rubber grip handle and the shield is smaller than the regular sizes I’ve seen in the market, yet large enough to do a good job. Plus, they come in blue, pink…
There’s so much more to see, including the director’s style makeup chairs, makeup kits that have drawers, brush holders, sharpeners, hair stylist’s tool kits/rolls in fun colors…It’s also a fantastic plus, that the Suesh staff are so friendly, knowledgable and look the part!:)

Someone texted me back, in perfect English and their friendliness came through the text- I could almost imagine her voice answering my queries. Wasn’t until that evening and the following day that I found out it was Ms Sheryll herself, one of the sisters who own the boutiques, who I was communicating with! Haha. She invited me to the ATC opening and gave me a gift pa. Thank you!
That was a lovely Sunday afternoon with friends and…Makeup Shopping!
Thanks Ladies. I’ll see you again soon!
