Thevi Cosmetics

** note: HEAVY POST

I was contacted by Thevi Cosmetics to do a review on their products. First thing I do? I check their website. I was a bit hesitant at first as the first thing I check is the shipping. Do they ship internationally? And wait a minute, do they know where I am located?

I sent an email to Connie at once telling her I'm not from the US and I'm located in one of the 7,107 islands in the Philippines (lol, of course I just stated it in simpler terms --- I am from Manila, Philippines!) Connie said it's still ok and she wanted me to do a review for their products.

I am a researcher, a super curious researcher! I've read about the Thevi brand and understand their company mission. What caught my eye is this

Inner Beauty Made Visible

I said yes and I'll definitely do an in-depth review on this for consumers like me who wants to buy products that are "worth it" and products that would bring out the inner beauty in us!

And this package is one example of inner beauty --- what's beautiful are inside LOL
(gosh I am joking again!)

The Lovely Box Wonderful brochure with all product information and prices!
I also received a lovely letter from the president of Thevi Cosmetics
Ms. Thevaki Thambirajah

We have to take a photo of the back of the brochure as they obviously took time and a lot of effort in creating this wonderful brochure. I like it that they included in the brochure the different product lines with different color selections! I don't need to open the website again and again just to check out the colors/prices/products!

Here's what I got for review :

Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation with SPF 15 in Sandy Beige ($32.00)
Triple Split e/s in Venice ($22.00)

Matte e/s no. 231 ($20.00)

High Impact Lipstick in Sequin ($22.00)

and Thevi Dome Blush ($38.00)

And of course! The swatches!
(note: In-depth review will be coming out soon!)

A lot of things to do...

Thank goodness weekend's here!

Happy Friday to all Asian readers...

and weekend is coming soon to the rest of the world!!!


  1. oh yay, free makeup and brush!! the brush looks really nice ;)

  2. I can't wait for your review on the makeup! :)

  3. Yay for free products! That's awesome that they contacted you to try out their products.

  4. I mistaken that pink eyeshadow as blush! But i think i'll be using it as a blush anyway i dont do pinks on my eye lids! haha

    How do you like the liquid mineral foundation?

  5. I was contacted by them too, to do a review. But I only received 2 products, LOL!!! I got a blush and powder compact. Man, I want a brush!! LOL...they jipped me :P

  6. Wish I was contacted lol it's alright I'm a newbie =/

  7. Nicnic, first touch and feel, the brush is promising! But i have to wash it and use it for a week to be able to see if it really works!

    Alyssa, I can't wait to use them! I did use the e/s trio and matte pink (as blush) today, I'll keep mum for now as it's still too early to tell! *winks*

    Fabu-less, I know! I was surprised, it just made me feel warm that a company do trust my judgment and know that I'll definitely be straightforward about their products

    Elizabeth, I don't use that kind of pink on my lids as well..but trust me..for the sake of review, I'll do it! But I'm using it now as a blush!!! Liquid mineral..I love the feel but the color is wrong on me! I would probably chase my friends who's got darker skin tone than mine! I'll let you know how it goes

    Gee!!!! Ohhhh I want a blush, when I saw the reviews of the fellow bloggers who has done a thevi review and saw how much they love the blush! I wanted one too!!!! No worries, I'll let you know how to brush goes!

  8. Yay free stuff! And it looks really nice too! Review asap pls.

  9. wow nikki! :) we can't wait for the review!

    Mhean, you'll be contacted by MAC! You should be!

    Dianatan, no, it's not a blush! It's actually a MATTE eyeshadow, it's too pink and the color looks more like a blush, so I'm happy I can use it as a blush! I did use it as a blush today! I'll do a proper review soon!

    Gio, hold on tight, I will be doing the reviews soon! :)
