13 Fun Beauty Products To Try For The Child In You


I often say ‘I’m playing with my makeup’, because what is makeup up if not fun, addictive colour play for adults, right? You experiment, paint, swatch – you create. Combining our love for makeup and a dose of childhood memories, we round up products that offer both. Oh, and while the product packaging may be fun and whimsical, be rest assured the pigments, textures and efficacy of these are serious business!

Remember those fun stamp art projects you did as a kid? Well, here’s a cheek blush stamp for the grown-up version of that kid! The brand’s page says, ‘Come for the cuteness, stay for the pigmentation & blendable formula’ and we are here for it. It features a cushion blush formula, with the most adorable heart-shaped applicator that you can stamp onto the cheeks and then blend for a gorgeous pop of colour.

2. Makeup Eraser Disney Princesses and Villains

Anyone who’s ever loved Disney’s characters will love these Makeup Eraser collections featuring Disney Princesses and Villains! They come in sets of 7 pieces, one mini for every day of the week, and are double-sided to erase and exfoliate. For those who don’t already know, this sustainable makeup removal product allows one to take off all makeup using only water- minus the chemicals, oils and soap. What’s not to love?’

A paint palette for grown-ups? Yes, please! But this is no ordinary eyeshadow palette. A set of five colours, these glow under UV/blacklight, and it even comes with a fine liner brush so you can create endless looks. Think parties, music festivals and all sorts of celebrations with this one.

5. Innisfree X Peanuts

K-beauty brand Innisfree teamed up with the long-running comic strip Peanuts to launch a limited-edition skincare range featuring illustrations of the much-loved characters Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, and Sally Brown across its packaging.
