Time flies in a blink of an eye and before we know it, it’s been over a month since the COVID-19 has put us in semi-quarantine. As some take it out in the kitchen and many others take to Tiktok, many beautiphiles and even makeup geeks consider the stay-at-home days a blessing for their skin, which for years have been damaged by daily makeup. It’s time to let skin rest, breathe and repair itself. In fact, we consider it the best period to test the effectiveness of new skincare — and even some makeups that give us that kind of natural glow look we want the world to see….from our Instagram, Tiktok or video calls, at least.
Here are the new beauty items we have tried and loved this month!
1. Hourglass Veil Eye Primer & Setting Spray
2. Laura Mercier Caviar Volume Panoramic Mascara
3. Nars The Bronzing Collection
Another giant makeup house to go for a full-blown bronzed glow is a brand known and loved for its to-die-for illuminating products — Nars. This summer, François Nars turns up the heat with The Bronzing Collection featuring iconic colours in new, silky and lightweight formula and new colours to add to its existing must-haves, covering everything you’ll ever need for a natural summer glow look from shimmer bronzing powders, matte bronzing powders, loose eye pigments, lip tints and lip balms.

Consider it a perk of work-from-home policy but it’s your time to enjoy binge-masking during work hours! Along came Boutijour, a new skincare line from South Korea focusing on face lifting through face masks! Their massive range of face masks include sheet masks and gel mask designed to shape up the contour of your face.

5. Kanebo I HOPE N-Rouge Lipstick
Kanebo’s latest makeup concept brings together bright, hopeful colors and sustainable goals, with muted, cool black package that shouts classic. The highlight is none other than the new N-Rouge lipsticks featuring 2-D Control Complex and 5R Compound Base that give a unique Neo-Flat finish. Coming in a total of 18 colours, N-Rouge is divided into 3 models: the bright and lively Neo Dimensional Colors, shiny Nexus Sun Red Colors and the Nascent Primer Colors that are meant to be used in combination with other colours.
6. Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush
Another month another new makeup release from dear old Rihanna and this time, she caters to those who swear by cream blush with Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush and Bronzer — packaged in the signature octagonal compact for extra convenience. The formula is lightweight, easy to blend and yet, difficult to overdo — it’s simply everything we want our cream blush to be. It’s smooth, non-greasy and yet, sweat-and-water-resistant. What’s more? It comes in 10 bold colours for the blush and 7 for bronzer — such a diverse shade range to guarantee you would find something that looks like it’s being made just for you!
