10 international beauty products we’re dying to shop in India

It's the Holy Grail of beauty

BY Tatiana Dias | January 8th, 2019

The beauty market in India has changed dramatically over the last few years, courtesy brands like Nykaa and Sephora that have already brought a whole hpst of international beauty best sellers right to our doorsteps. However, this is just the beginning—there are still so many cult-status beauty products that we’re starved of. Here are 10 holy grail products that the beauty Gods can get started with—if they’re listening, that is. 

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

If a zit zapper is what your skin needs, look no further. The spot treatment is a combination of calamine and salicylic acids—together, it dries pimples while calming the skin around them. 


Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

The mother of all setting powders, the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder is the perfect partner for your base. Giving you a matte finish and sheer coverage, the powder reduces shine and sets the make-up, leaving your skin looking smooth and even.


NARS Orgasm Blush 

If there’s one blush that’s on everyone’s wish list, it's this one. Perfect for a peachy flush, this product has been so popular that an entire collection of make-up has been created around it. We really need this 'orgasm' in our lives ‘cause we’re totally done faking it with others.

 


Giorgio Armani Silk Foundation 

Looking for a foundation that’s matte, but not too matte; slightly dewy but not greasy? Armani’s Silk Foundation bridges that gap, giving you an even matte finish with a luminous silky touch—it’s so great that even Kim K swears by it.


ColourPop Super Shock Highlighters

ColourPop's range of drugstore highlighters is phenomenal; just one swatch and you will see why it's a beauty must-have. The creamy texture allows for smooth finish…you know the, ‘I don’t sweat, I glow’ kind. To top it all, the product comes in various hues and is super pocket-friendly—what more do you need?


Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palettes 

If you’ve ever watched a beauty tutorial, you know that this eyeshadow palette is a must-have. Known for its range of hues and strong pigment payoff, there’s a good reason why this product is a go-to for many.


Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

A lightweight spray that keeps make-up intact all day long? Hell, yes! The beauty of this product is that it actually lowers the temperature of your make-up, preventing it from melting or looking washed out. Come rain, wind or sunshine, the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray will not let you down.


PIXI Glow Tonic

Sensitive skin, combined with the effects of pollution and tropical weather, is a disaster that's waiting to happen. When cleansers aren’t MVP enough to take care of skincare issues, turn to PIXI Glow. This gentle exfoliator brightens, tones, and conditions the skin, taking care of blemishes, while leaving your face looking a lot more even.


Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat

Oh, how this magical wand has changed the lives of many! The Touche Éclat Radiant Pen is a liquid concealer and highlighter. The tiny light particles and mineral extracts in the product leave your skin looking brighter and radiant with just one swipe.


Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita 

Just like MAC has Ruby Woo, Kat Von D has Lolita! This pinkish, nude liquid lipstick has a matte finish that dries super fast, the formula is transfer-proof, and it has a super strong pigment.
