After months of reviewing close to 300 beauty products and wellness facilities, and tallying, here are the best skincare products of this year, and lest we forget, your top pick! And so without further ado, here are the Beauty & Wellness Awards winners.
Even though dinner plans are cancelled and we have nowhere to go, it doesn’t mean we can’t look decent in our own comfort. Few of us stick with the same unsung heroes of our makeup routine, but when you’ve met the best beauty products for your skin type and preference, you’ll realise the powerful role they play in achieving the look you want. Check out our editors’ favourite picks.
NARS has introduced a new version of its much-loved cult-classic blush. Named Orgasm X, this hot shade is a bolder version of the original, with a deeper warmth and coral undertones. To emulate that post-intimacy flushed glow, gently press a fluffy brush into the blush and apply to the apples of the cheeks. Don’t forget to blend a bit into the hairline — and, for a more natural look, to the tip of the nose too.
“The peach undertone is universally flattering and perfect for summer. It’s very pigmented, so a little goes a long way.” Tiffany Poon, Society Editor
When it comes to translucent loose setting powder, Laura Mercier is the first brand that comes to mind. There’s been a major update to this go-to setting powder, which was already oily/combination skin’s best friend, and the latest version comes infused with a custom blend of pearl pigment that creates a glowing finish.
Give your peepers a pop of colour with Urban Decay’s Ultraviolet, the boldest addition of the Naked Palette collection. This eyeshadow palette shares similar layout and texture as its predecessors, but unlike other Naked Palettes, the colours — think purples and pinks — are mostly bright.
According to the theory, chapped lips should avoid matte lipstick entirely, due to the latter’s drying formula. Charlotte tilbury thinks otherwise, however, and its matte revolution in pillow talk medium has been a cult favourite since its launch earlier this year. It boasts a warm berry-pink hue that suits asian skin tones, and its lightly emollient texture keep the lips smooth and kissable.
