Shopping for beauty products is as fun (swatches galore!) as it is confusing. With a ton of new products monthly, how can you be sure you’re getting the best out there? That’s where we come in. As beauty junkies, we’re always on the latest beat. And it’s that time again when some of our favourite brands have just launched lines of new makeup, skincare, and haircare to fall in love with.
Cleansers can very harsh on the skin, and that ‘clean’ feeling is actually robbing you of the skin’s natural oils. Miceller water, on the other hand, is somewhat skincare magic. Made with 99.8% naturally derived ingredients that also include thyme essential oil and lemon balm floral water, this cleanser removes makeup and impurities with rinsing, rubbing or scrubbing.
£10 (around RM50) from every purchase of the styler is donated to Breast Cancer Now, which is the best reason to purchase something we’ve all had on our wish list, if you haven’t already. This one comes with two heat sensors to continuously control the optimum styling temperature from root to tip. And with a universal voltage, you can straighten or curl your crowning glory anywhere in the world.
Feed your skin with Hungarian thermal water and botanicals before a big day, and your skin will look readily refreshed and healthy. The mineral-rich thermal water comes from a spring below Hungary’s Carpathian Valley where the earth’s crust is the thinnest, which allows the water to absorb an abundance of minerals. With cool water, this hydrating mask transforms into an invigorating flash of heat to open pores and optimise the absorption of nutrients.
We’ve been looking for a glitter eyeshadow that doesn’t smudge easily, and we’ve found it. This weightless formula is infused with light-reflecting pearls that create a super sparkly finish. And with a creamy texture, it glides across the eyelids and dries quickly. Pile on that glitter because this eyeshadow — which comes in five earthy shades — is extremely buildable.
There is no end to our love of creamy makeup (on second thought, it’s a no for creamy mascara). Stila’s got a new full-coverage nude kit of three deluxe-size best selling shades. Two are matte and one is a shimmer shade, and thanks to its water-resistant formula, they stay on for up to 12 hours. An infusion Vitamin E and avocado oil keeps your pout soft and hydrated throughout.
For a natural glow sans highlighter, we like the finish this exquisite oil blend gives. It’s perfect for dull skin days, especially when you’ve had a late night and it shows. Jasmine flower extracts have healing and calming effects while evening primrose oil, grapeseed oil and Vitamin C protect your skin’s tone and texture. For an extra hydration boost, add a few drops to your moisturiser.
