Who Are We?

A short version of that answer would be that we’re your guide into the world of beauty products.

However, we are all about explanations and reviews, so let’s dive into a broader one. We launched MetDaan because just like you, we always want to know if the newest product is worth the hype and how it fits our skin type. With so many beauty products hitting the market every day, it’s hard to tell which one will make our skin glow and our eyes pop. There are many iconic stars making their debut in the beauty world, and our team of writers and editors are dedicated to guiding you through them and making them easily accessible. Our team has been part of the beauty industry for years, and many of them pursued it as a lifelong passion.

We understand that although beauty isn’t a ‘one size fits all’, it is all-inclusive. There is a perfect product out there for you, no matter your skin tone, hometown, income, taste, and hair type. Whether you’re an engineer or a model, there is a place for you in our beauty community.

There’s a red shade for every taste, and we live by that. However, beauty is not all selfies and professional make-up. So, if you’re on the look-out for a perfume you will swear on or a mask to get that refreshing glowy look, we are here to try them for you!

So, stay with us, juggle through our suggestions, and maybe leave with an item or two. Who knows? Maybe you’ll finally find your dream concealer!

Editorial Guidelines

Here at MetDaan, our mission has always been to bring the beauty world to you and making shopping a pleasure. There’s beauty in and all around us, and sometimes we need a little help to see it.

Our goal is to serve as an inspiration to everyone who wants to dip their toes in the beauty universe. We feel it is our duty to keep readers up-to-date and share our opinions and thoughts. Our principles contain making everyone feel included, giving reliable information, and transparency.
