10 International Beauty Brands To Have On The Radar RN

International Beauty Brands

Not many years ago, we hardly imagined having access to international beauty brands. Our wish list was thronged with internationally best-selling products, but we would desperately wait for a relative to visit us so we could get our hands on them. Lucky for us, today the situation is nothing like before and we get surprised by a new international launch in India almost every month. We’ve come a long way in terms of the availability of international beauty and it’s only getting bigger and better by the day. Here are favourite brands that launched in India in the past six months.
