I think I speak for everyone when I say nobody does eyeshadow palettes as Huda Beauty. Right from colour stories to pigmentation, it’s always on point. Their newest launch, the Creamy Matte Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes could just become your everyday eyeshadow essentials palette. Available in 2 variants—Warm and Cool, these palettes feature a cream-to-powder formula along with a matte one.

Dior Gris Dior

A unique, genderless scent, Gris Dior is a fragrance that knows how to make a statement. A chypre scent that is the amalgamation of floral and woody notes, Gris Dior makes for a modern scent with a hint of heritage attached to it. With notes of rose, patchouli and moss, this fragrance evokes confidence and comfort at the same time.

FAE Beauty Daily Dip Moisturiser

Summer calls for us to switch to a lightweight moisturiser which delivers a dose of hydration to the skin while keeping it healthy and plump. FAE Beauty’s Daily Dip Moisturiser is formulated with ingredients like cica, ceramides, olive oil squalene along with a combination of hyaluronic acid and polyglutamic acid. These ingredients ensure your skin feels hydrated all through the day without feeling greasy—yep, it works on all skin types.

Chloé Nomade Jasmin Naturel Intense

An extension to Chloé’s existing Nomade line, the Jasmin Naturel Intense is a 100% natural-origin fragrance which combines floral and fruity notes that are perfect for summer. Featuring notes of pear, Egyptian Jasmine and Sandalwood, this fragrance should be in your wardrobe if you enjoy strong, feminine scents.

Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Lip Oil

Is there a single product from Rare Beauty that isn’t sold out everywhere the minute it hits the shelves? A sibling to the Soft Pinch Liquid Blush, the newly launched Soft Pinch Lip Oil showcases an innovative formula that combines the sheer colour of a lip tint with the glossy sheen of a lip oil. With 8 shades to match its blush sibling, this lip oil keeps your lips hydrated minus the sticky feeling that comes along with oils.

KAYALI Yum Pistachio Gelato 33

Dreaming of gorging on delectable pistachio-flavoured ice cream this summer? Us too! Kayali’s newest fragrance, Yum Pistachio Gelato 33 is a burst of flavour with lip-smacking notes of pistachio, whipped cream, hazelnut, marshmallow and sweet rum. Wanna smell like a walking snack? A few spritzes of this are all you need.

Too Faced Cloud Blurring Blush

Cloud skin is IN right now. The Cloud Blurring Blush from Too Faced delivers a hazy, cloud-like effect all thanks to its cushiony formula.

Jo Malone Cologne Intense

Inspired by faraway lands and sensual ingredients, Jo Malone’s Intense range primarily features nine new fragrances alongside cremes and candles. Unlike their usual scents that showcase British notes, this collection encompasses oud, vetiver and poppy to name a few.

For someone like me who uses eyeshadow on a daily, washing my brushes every single day is a tedious task that I push till the end of time. Makeup Forever’s Instant Brush Cleanser will probably make that job a lot easier than it is. With no rinsing required, this cleanser does a stellar job at getting all of the residue out without leaving your brushes greasy.

Simply Nam Velvet Blush

When Simply Nam first launched their Velvet Blushes, they were an instant hit because of their texture and pigmentation. Just in time for summer, 2 new shades have been added to the existing collection– Soul Sister ( a berry hue ) and Two Peas In A Pod ( a coral pink hue ).

Givenchy Le Rouge Interdit Silk Lipstick

Rich texture, intense payoff and luxurious packaging—sign us up! The Le Rouge Interdit Silk Lipstick from Givenchy features natural origin ingredients and a refillable case.
