beauty by freyja: The New Destination for Beauty | beauty by freyja review

As if Sephora, BeautyMNL, and BeautyBar are not yet enough, the beauty gods have blessed us, beauty lovers, junkies, and alike with beauty by freyja or simply freyja (pronounced fre-ia).

And in case you're wondering, beauty by freyja got their name from the goddess of love and beauty of Norse mythology.

Just several weeks ago, freyja opened their first physical store in Glorietta 2, and at the same time, their online store (www.freyja.com) for international brands of makeup, skincare, beauty tools, scents.

FYI - they're the only authorized distributor of Jeffree Star Cosmetics...


...and KORA Organics, an organic skincare brand which is owned by none other than supermodel Miranda Kerr herself!


You won't even have to worry about the authenticity of these products because Freyja is operated by the Luxasia Group, which is Asia's leading beauty and luxury lifestyle omnichannel partner for brand distribution (with huge brands such as Balenciaga, Balmain, Burberry, Bvlgari, Gucci, Guerlain, Juicy Couture, Marc Jacobs, and more!), retail, and e-commerce in the Asia Pacific.


I love ordering online from BeautyMNL, so when I heard about Freyja, I figured I must give it a try. Especially since I got 10% off on my first purchase when I signed up!


I needed a good retractable kabuki brush and after reading reviews online, I finally decided to buy Real Technique's from freyja. I ordered last November 13th...


The item was priced at P650, but then I applied my 10% discount code. I also got free shipping and an individual sample of Benefit's POREfessional Pearl Primer.


Like most big online stores, they have a feature which can track your order status. But unfortunately, freyja's is not working. I clicked the Track your order hyperlink but I only saw this. Not much of help in tracking your order status. Boohoo.


Anyway, I checked my order status daily but to no avail. I just got this text message last November 17th that my order was on its way. I sure hope freyja does something about that.

Opening my package from freyja | freyja review


My order arrived in this shoe-box like packaging which is nice, because it's easier to recycle. When I opened it, there's minimal use of plastic. They used confetti-like recycled papers and a bubblewrap. Watch the unboxing here!



My Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush finally arrived and in perfect condition!


Along with my freebie, Benefit's POREfessional Pearl Primer.






THE VERDICT: The transaction was smooth, although it'd be better if they fixed the order tracking feature so that as a customer, I know what the status of my order is. And why put the "track your order" hyperlink there if it's not going to show the status, am I right? Anyway other than that, I'm all good. I also like that freyja is not only an online store because it's also an online community by beauty lovers for beauty lovers. Here, we get to talk and share all things about beauty: makeup, skincare, scents, and whatnot! 

I recently bought a lot of makeup and skincare products that's why I'm limiting myself with all my beauty purchases. I only bought from freyja because I needed a retractable brush which I can just put on my makeup kit which I constantly bring with me.

And in case you're wondering, no, I did not get paid for this (I wish LOL). I paid all of these with my own money, and the discount code I got was when I signed up which is offered to everybody else who does.
