Makeup Wanderlust: Dearberry Philippines’ Blog Con

I’ve been a Korean makeup fan for as long as I can remember. So long that I can name a lot of Korean brands and their K-Pop ambassadors from singers to Koreanovela stars, haha! But yes, when it comes to beauty, Koreans have been known for two things: 1. that glorious skin and 2. simple, natural looking makeup. This is why when I learned about Dearberry, I got really excited. I thought I can’t wait to put my hands on these beauty stuff!

THE PRELUDE

Dearberry is a Korean skincare and cosmetic line (2 lines in 1 label, YAS!) which was first launched in Seoul, Korea last year. Personally, I love how they’ve positioned their brand as an “affordable high quality cosmetics line made with ingredients from nature ”.

Talk about NATURAL INGREDIENTS, the “Berry” (in Dearberry) stands for the so-called “Supercritical Berry Complex” which consists of 8 types of berries namely cranberry, acai berry, blueberry, strawberry, aronia berry, raspberry, blackberry, and elderberry. Apart from that, Dearberry products also contain Gigawhite Complex and Niacinamide that are good in keeping the skin bright, flawless and blemish-free.

Dearberry

“Dearberry” sounds a pretty cute name – it’s like mixing sweetness, daintiness and all kinds of quirkiness in one organic blend, VERY KOREAN!

I’ve learned a lot about Dearberry through blogs and other web channels and most beauty bloggers say that the products are so good and affordable that you wouldn’t mind adding all of the variants in your makeup stash. I’ve also seen several online shops selling tons of these items so when I got an invite to Dearberry’s very first bloggers’ con, I know I shouldn’t say no. Interestingly, prior to this event, I received a message from Shaula Leong, Dearberry’s Marketing Manager (Philippines). She asked me if they can sponsor my Meet and Greet activity, which happened last August 30 at 7 Flavors Buffet, San Juan. OF COURSE YES NA YES! So finally, I got a mini brand preview and I’m happy that me and my guests got to take home Dearberry samplers.

THE B/VLOG CON

Fast forward to September 3, the day we (beauty bloggers and bloggers) were all waiting for. When I first saw the huge pile of Dearberry products on the table , I got stunned and overwhelmed. Geesh, I got all my beauty needs in one place! From facial wash, toners and night creams to blushers, mascaras, liners and of course, LIPPIES, Dearberry just got everything for US GIRLS! You’ll never imagine how happy and giddy I am as we walk through each Dearberry item (Thank you Odie and Marika of BamrockMDSG for doing a really good job!).

Each product was introduced, swatched and tested and yes, our duty was to make sure we got snaps of every single thing!

Now, brace yourselves because the next series of photos will make you lust for Dearberry goodies! I will not explain all the products (and their uses) yet, because I’ll be doing a more detailed review soon but let me just give you a preview of my favorite picks!

DANBI PRODUCTS

So this is a premium skincare label under Dearberry which aims to target different skin concerns such as dryness and aging. The Danbi mists and toners are perfect for those girls with sensitive skin because they contain all the natural essences to keep our skin healthy and moisturized.

PS. Don’t you just love their packaging?

LIPPIES

Dearberry has a variety of lipsticks and lip colors but my favorite is the Flirt line. The variants from this line are a bit pigmented and they produce a bright and full finish.

LIP BALMS

Flavoured lip balms, yas!

EYE SHADOWS

DSCF4022

This Rock It eyeshadow palette is the bomb. I’m certainly loving the shimmer effect and I love the fact that it’s not overdone. You’ll still get the natural look after a few dabs.

There are single eyeshadow shades too. The Bling it On eyeshadow comes in 20 lovely shades and of course, I’ll always go with the nudes.

PRIMERS

Magic PRIMERS indeed because they give the face a natural, sweet cover.

CHEEKISS LIP and CHEEK TINT

Processed with VSCO with j2 preset

So cute! I love how handy this cheek and lip tint (Cheekiss) is. It also comes in two colors: Starburst and Berry Wine!

They got loads of other products such as the Rockcat Girl Eyeliners, Suri Suri powder, Snail Eye Cream, Photo Sharp Pact, Honey Flash cream and MORE and I’ll be featuring each of them on my next post. What’s good about this company is that they’re open for suggestions as they continue to expand their product line and cater to more customers.

Me and my blogger friend Momo also enjoyed trying out all the products 🙂

We had a free makeup lesson too and provide the Makeup Caddy review by Sample Hime and other brands. We were taught how to use Dearberry products in achieving a natural makeup look.

Best part of the day – taking home these loot bags full of Dearberry products and tools (okay, so apparently they have makeup tools too, super amazeballs!)

Group photo! Looking forward to meet these girls again (probably in another Dearberry event!)

Finally,  I know that most of us (girls) are makeup crazy and I’m telling you this brand is more than just a Korean makeup line. It works beyond the colors by taking care of our skin and complementing our Asian features. Dearberry products are also very user-friendly and built for quick application. Just a few dabs, a little swoosh and a few pats and you’re done in 10 minutes! Amazing! Best part is (drumroll!)  – the products are all AFFORDABLE so it’s not really a huge skin investment, but the returns (the effects) are DEFINITELY BIG.

So now we know that every Dearberry product is worth a try, the question is, which products would you want me to review first? Let me hear your thoughts in the comments!

PS. Treating you all girls to a Dearberry giveaway soon so stay tuned!

  1. Hi Shaira. Nicely done post. Admittedly, I don’t use beauty products myself, but these are products others use. I am curious. Does the company provide labels that shows the ingredients? I think it would be a fantastic idea to publish the labels as well as I know more and more people read that too.

  2. This looks like not just a fun event but very informative as well. I appreciate it when brands teach us the proper application of these colors. It makes me love them more and be a loyalist to their brand. I was told before that Korean beauty products are nice to the skin. i was given by a dear friend one product And I love it. Hope to try this Dearberry as well.

  3. One thing that I am certain about is that the confidence in your amazing skin. Would love to try these out. Are they available online?

  4. Wow! Dearberry sounds a good makeup brand. I would love to try their cosmetics because they are affordable compare to other Korean brand cosmetics. The packaging is so cute. As in super cute talaga nakakatuwa especially the lip balms and the lip tintsHaha. I really Korean makeups. Koreans are known for having poreless and glowy skin gusto ko din magmukang Koreana charooott hahaha. ? can you make a swatch po sa lippies nila? I love lipsticks ? kisses ?

  5. i bet this brand has yet to come to Malaysia but yes K-beauty is the trend right now and I’m so in love with them too. Not just the quality but all their products are interesting really works and affordable to ,compared to well known western brands we were accustomed to last time. hope to get to try these soon myself

  6. I have become really curious about Korean make-up and skincare over the last couple of months but haven’t had the courage to buy and try one for myself. And Dearberry has skin care + cosmetic + make-up tools under one brand? That is amazing! I wish I was able to attend your meet and greet though!

  7. I just checked their website – their product designs are so kawaii!Although, I have to admit, I don’t know most of these stuff and what they’re for. lol. Not a make up junkie but I’m beginning to learn the basics – lipstick, eyebrows and eyeliners.

  8. This is the first time I heard of Dearberry. I have bought from Althea Korea which I could definitely say are affordable Korean beauty products. The lippie shades are so pretty. Mostly, light colors but I’m eyeing on the dark shade one.

  9. Wow! A meet and greet session with cosmetic freebies, Dearberry is really generous to host one. I’m happy that they chose you. Anyway, it’s my first time hearing about Dearberry. There are so many Korean cosmetic brands out there that it’s really important to set one apart. Dearberry did a good job in making their product line distinct by the usage of berries in their ingredients. I would like to see their other ingredients first though before I try. I’m really picky when it comes to cosmetics. Currently, the only Korean cosmetics I trust are Skin Food and Laneige.

  10. I am not in makeup that much but I do love seeing gatherings like this. Dearberry is too generous to host this event and introduce such gorgeous products. I am fine with powder and sometimes lipsticks so I so love the lippies shades here.

  11. Ohhh I love korean products too *esp the facial masks* I haven’t tried this brand though the packaging is so cute (sometimes you judge a brand by its cover LOL) I think it would help if you can also add the ingredients used for the product 🙂

  12. This is incredible! I have only recently found out about Korean skincare and makeup and gosh! There are so many brands I have never heard of! It’s a treasure chest of goodies I must try! I’m planning a trip to Korea soon so I’ll keep an eye out for some of these goodies!

    Keep up the amazing work!

  13. I have never heard of Dearberry. But I like what I read and see. If send a great event. I love all the packages. It looks good. And I’m glad to see lipbalms. It’s my addiction!

  14. I absolutely love your website.. Pleasant colors & theme.

    to create my own personal blog and would like to find
    out where you got this from or just what the theme is
