Finally! Miniso opened near my place, and I was so excited to see the stuff they sale. I heard that Miniso is a lot like Muji Store but it’s the cheaper version of Muji store.
Minis is a Chinese low-cost retailer and variety store chain that specializes in household and consumer goods including cosmetics, stationery, toys, and kitchenware.Co-founded in 2011 by Japanese designer Junya Miyake and Chinese entrepreneur Ye Guo Fu, the company is headquartered in Guangzhou, China, under the Chinese company Aiyaya.
Checking the place, Muji in Makati is a lot bigger compared to Miniso store it reminds me more of Daiso store instead of Muji.
There’s a beauty station, where they sell 100% facial cottons, eye liners, lipsticks and some other make up stuff. **I wasn’t able to take some photos as this station was so crowded**.
They also carry inexpensive make-up brushes for 149 pesos, around 3$, but I cannot attest the quality of the product.
Eye last curler for 99 pesos, around 2 dollars.
There’s also a small corner for home scents. I bought the match scent for 99 pesos, around 2$. I placed 2 bags of matcha perfume around my room, but it’s quite disappointing as the scent isn’t that strong. Actually, the scent didn’t last for an hour ☹
There’s also a section for empty bottle containers where you can use for your travels. Since they’re soo cute, and looks like neat, I bought 1 set for myself. They also carries a sirngle bottle for 45 pesos, less than a dollar, also, there’s a 99 for 3 bottles. But I think it’s much worth it to get the set for 145 pesos, around 3 dollars.
There’s also a section for these cutsie girly compact glass. They’re being sold for 99 pesos each, around 2$.
There’s also a section for sleeping mask, designs vary from plain, to cartoony, to playful.
For sporty, gym rat girls and guys, this fits you. They are selling a cool sports towel for 99 pesos , around 2$.
I saw an electronic face brush, but I wasn’t able to take a photo since there were group of girls who were blocking the shelves, not just for 15 mins, but I’ve been waiting for them to leave the shelves for quite sometime. Anyway, the electric brushes ranges from 500-700 pesos around 10-14$, very tempting to buy and try.
I had a great time looking into the shelves, seeing the tag prices, it’s very pocket friendly. As expected, since it’s newly opened, the lines were long, but queuing time is short.
