What it’s Like Wearing Makeup with and without Eternal Pearl

Living in a tropical country like ours, it’s almost impossible to last a day with a grease-free face.

That is not without trying. It seems like no matter the amount of oil control films you use or how many layering of mattifying cleanser + toner + moisturizer + foundation + powder you put on, somehow, oil can still find its way to your face.

To keep this sneaky and slippery excess sebum on a tight leash, use a primer. We know that we already put so much on our face. But the truth is, girl, you need this. Even the most beautiful and expensive makeup won’t stay for long without a base (yes, foundation is no longer the step 1 in cosmetology 101).

These are 3 attractive ladies from our team without anything on (also who, on a normal day, wouldn’t be caught bare-faced.)

For a perfect base, we use Eternal Pearl. It’s not just a moisturizer but also a primer.  We applied it to prep our skin for the day and give it a healthy glowing look. What we like about this is how it puts that glow on our faces without the greasy feel for a fresh look all day.

Putting Eternal Pearl to the test


We at V&M Naturals are also makeup junkies and have a problem of making it stay intact. Oftentimes, we have to retouch after every few hours. To see IF Eternal Pearl can really make our makeup last, we decided to wear makeup on different days, for the sake of testing – one without base and one with Eternal Pearl as a primer.

Makeup without Eternal Pearl

Some of us were not really used to putting on makeup without a base because we already know what will happen. But for you, we’ll do it. The pictures below are us without Eternal Pearl. Straight on cosmetics. Let us tell you this: it won’t happen again. [gallery ids="1263,1264,1265" type="slideshow"]

The result: The foundation won’t even cling to our skin. We had to repeatedly swipe the brush and apply layers upon layers of makeup just so we could have some of it stay on our face. Our skin feels tight. Like Sahara dry. We look really dull and upon closeup look, we’re crazy flaky. We can’t wait to wash our face and apply Eternal Pearl. At the end of the day, our makeup is long gone and our skin looks dull and just tiiired.

Makeup with Eternal Pearl

After slathering Eternal Pearl on our face, we applied V&M Minerals Makeup and continued on with our tasks.

The result: Application of foundation is very easy. For the lipstick, we blended Hot Peach Blush with Smooch Lip Detox so that only nutrients enter our lips. Despite the glowing look Eternal Pearl gives, it doesn’t feel oily at all and the skin feels silky soft. All the pores seem to have gone into hiding. The best part? It prolongs the wear of our cosmetics! We don’t have to retouch until it’s time to go home (7:00 PM) and even then we still look fresh as if we haven’t battled our way through our workloads.


Even the most beautiful and expensive makeup can look bad without a base. Get your gleam on with Eternal Pearl. It has a non-greasy texture that puts a glow to ALL skin tones that shows even after applying layers of makeup.

10 Reasons Why Marula Oil Got the Beauty Experts Raving
advnm_marulaoil_1_720.jpg It’s time to meet the new beautifying product on the block: Marula Oil.   This wondrous oil is similar to the Argan Oil that we have grown to love, but with a little more extra. Well, a LOT more extra.  Given the nickname, “Africa’s beauty secret”, it is extracted from the nuts of the Marula tree in South Africa and was traditionally used on the skin and hair for its benefits.  

Great for your skin

  1. Suits all skin types – It is easily absorbed by the skin and doesn’t clog your pores. Moreover, Marula oil is enriched with oleic acid; just what you need for a beautifully healthy skin.
  2. The Elixir of youth – We don’t mean to overwhelm you, but Marula Oil holds a whopping 60% more antioxidants than your holy grail Argan Oil and contains 4 times as much vitamin C as your favorite orange. It is also enhanced with vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Together, they are a formidable anti-aging team that provides an advanced protection against photoaging.
  3. Combats acne – Scared to use oils because of your acne-prone skin? Marula oil has three properties that would surely ease your worries: non-comedogenic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory that can help deal with your acne woes. It doesn't clog pores and instead of worsening the condition of the inflamed skin, Marula Oil actually helps in eliminating the impurities on your skin and prevent the formation of future zits.
  4. Prevents scars and stretchmarks – It has the essential nutrients to keep your skin supple and firm. It also inhibits the formation of hyperpigmentation and prohibits the appearance of stretch marks; making it a good massage oil for expecting mothers.
  5. Soothes – It has anti-microbial qualities that can alleviate different skin conditions.
  6. Moisturizes – It sinks deep into the skin and delivers hydrating gifts to your lackluster skin to promote a radiant and supple tone.

Great for your hair

  1. Nourishes – It regenerates your hair cells and boosts the healthy growth of your crowning glory.
  2. Frizz-free – It covers your hair cuticles with a glowing finish.
  3. Offers protection – It coats your strands to shield your tresses from the heat of curling iron and other environmental assaults on your gorgeous locks.

We Tried Eternal Pearl for a Week and This is What Happened
21-c Our latest release, Eternal Pearl Pore-Perfecting Face Creme, has authentic pearl powder known for its revitalizing properties; activating skin renewal and elasticity. Combined with wheat and wild indigo plant, it gently detoxifies, reduces pore size, and inhibits melanin production while stopping the formation of dark age spots. It promotes the production of uplifting endorphins for an overall refreshed, luminous, youthful, and clearer complexion. Or so it says on the label. As they say, to see is to believe. Three brave women with different skin types, skin tones, and skin issues took the challenge of proving whether they can achieve a PEARLfect skin, which Eternal Pearl promises to deliver. We documented the changes in their complexion for a week and the results are simply… Spectacular.   EternalPearl_Trial_Fair.jpg Sheila, our 21-year-old Human Resource Officer has always been bothered by her dry and sensitive skin. It also looks flushed day in and day out. Premature lines are also forming on her young forehead due to dryness. Let’s not forget about her enlarged pores. [gallery ids="1052,1053,1054" type="slideshow"] 5 days in and Sheila got a nick on her right cheek. But still, she was not worried because Eternal Pearl is fortified with our star product, the skin-regenerating emu oil.
“I accidentally scratched my face while shopping; and though small, the wound was noticeable. I continued using Eternal Pearl and I noticed that it really did wonders not only in healing scars but also in lightening them! I am very happy with the result. Thank you, V&M Naturals, for creating such a miracle wonder product.”
After using Eternal Pearl, our HR Officer gladly shared that her skin felt firmer and her ‘always blushing’ face finally toned down. She conveyed her happy skin story to us,
“I felt that it really tightened my skin – in a good way. I noticed the glow it gave me and my pores visibly shrunk. I will still continue using it because it really has a great effect on my skin.”
  EternalPearl_Trial_Medium.jpg Melanie, our Content Writer desperately wants to solve her tired-looking skin. After a long day at work, plus the 2-hour journey from her home to the office and vice versa, she can feel exhaustion pulling at her skin. No amount of moisturizing creams can solve the issue. Until Eternal Pearl.
“I used to dislike examining my skin in the mirror because it always looked really tired, thirsty, and REALLY oily. But after using Eternal Pearl, I just can’t tear my gaze away from my face. Really! I would even go as far to say that I look in love! My skin clearly became more supple and rejuvenated.”
[gallery ids="1060,1061" type="slideshow"] Besides her sluggish appearance, our 21-year-old Morena sweetheart feels perturbed her acne and oily face woe. Luckily, Eternal Pearl got her back.
“I also had a 2-week old pimple on my forehead, which had no signs of leaving anytime soon. I was a bit hesitant to put Eternal Pearl on it at first because I had an experience with another moisturizer that aggravated my pimple. Contrary to what I expected, it dried up my breakout in less than a week and I had not experienced another breakout since then. What’s more, I no longer have to retouch after every few hours because of my really oily skin. I can now spend the whole day not touching my face powder. And I was a certified powder person.”
  EternalPearl_Trial_Deep.jpg For a deep skin tone, we have Sette who wants to reveal the glow to replace her usual dull and flaky skin. She took the challenge to the next level, and for 7 days, she started going to work WITHOUT any makeup on.
“Before using Eternal Pearl, I couldn't step out of the house without makeup because I look really dull and there are many uneven patches on my skin. But ever since I started using Eternal Pearl, I gained the confidence to go out bare-faced. The plus factor is that a small amount can already cover your whole face.”
[gallery ids="1066,1067" type="slideshow"] Our charming deep-skinned Business Development Officer remarked in an impressed voice,
“After using Eternal Pearl, my skin was soooo soft. I don’t even need to put on make-up, Eternal Pearl is THAT good. I didn’t put on any makeup for the past week, and still, my face never felt any dryness or roughness. Whenever I wake up in the morning, I feel really moisturized. Gone was the dryness.”
Even her friends have taken notice of the changes,
“Eternal Pearl is my go-to moisturizer in an instant. My friends noticed how my face became smoother and my patches on my skin magically disappeared.”
“Eternal Pearl is really good if you want to moisturize your skin in an instant. Also, it makes the skin glow!! It removes unnecessary dirt and skin concern. Even the smell doesn’t faze me because of the effect it gives me.”
  Eternal Pearl Pore-Perfecting Face Crème was launched last September 22 in the market. Since then, more and more people are taking on the PEARLfection challenge, just like us. Not only does this act as a moisturizer, it also doubles as a primer to set your face ready for your cosmetic products.

5 Reasons Why You Can't Skip Moisturizing

Some think that facial moisturizing is only for the vainest or only for people with dry-as-the-Sahara skin type. It is important however, for all of us to understand that it is a daily essential.

The basic use of a moisturizer is that it keeps our skin hydrated so we don’t look tired or unkempt. Another is to build a natural protection for our skin. Are those all a moisturizer could do? No. We corrected 2 of the most common myths about facial moisturizing for you. Read on.

“I’m already oily, so I don’t need it” Wrong. Whenever you wash your face, you strip off its natural oils, leaving it dry and vulnerable to allergens and antigens. Moisturizer helps bring back and seal your skin’s natural moisture to prevent epidermal drying and cracking.

“I’m acne-prone. It will make my breakouts worse!” No, it won’t. The right product will be your best friend! A moisturizer balances your skin to avoid breakouts that people with dry or oily skin are more prone to.

Now that we’ve cleared those myths, let’s move on to what you would miss if you skipped moisturizing.

You miss looking radiantly youthful. Your facial skin renews cells more often than your body. Not using a moisturizer would leave it vulnerable to dryness — making fine lines more noticeable. Daily moisturizing maintains your skin’s moisture level and prevents and removes wrinkles, hence firming your facial skin.

You miss getting the perfect canvas for fool-proof makeup application. To make your makeup products run smoothly on your skin, applying moisturizer is a must. It removes those little lines under your eyes that a concealer can’t, well, conceal.

You miss getting a brighter and supple complexion. That tight feeling after a shower? That’s your skin begging for hydration. You don’t want to feel dry yet oily all day, do you? Many moisturizing products promote skin firming as an added benefit while hydrating your skin.

You miss adding a layer of protection. Sucker for cosmetics? It usually contains harmful chemicals that easily enter your pores and wreak havoc on your skin unless you put on creams. It acts as a shield on top of your skin.

Assists your skin overnight. Your skin enters “repair mode” at night. By using creams with helpful nutrients, you help your skin do a better job at renewing your cells. Plus, you’ll wake up feeling visibly fresh and hydrated.

To not fall short on these myriad of benefits only a moisturizer can do, we recommend our PEARLfect product – Eternal Pearl Pore-Perfecting Face Creme


The youngest yet in our line! Eternal Pearl enters the scene to let you experience PEARLfection like never before.

Day and Night, stimulate collagen production with its creamy blend of luminous pearl powder for skin renewal and elasticity. Combined with pore-perfecting wheat to target age spots and mood-lifting wild indigo plant, it promotes a well-boosted and renewed skin appearance. Together, these 3 ingredients form a formidable bond resulting in a youthful, lucid, and radiant complexion.
