There’s a new K-beauty brand making inroads on our Little Red Dot with South Korean actress Park Shin Hye leading the way

There's really no stopping the K-beauty train, and steamrolling onto the scene is Mamonde, the newest South Korean import that takes inspiration from lush floras to concoct a bevy of skincare and makeup goodies. Launching on our shores to much anticipation, the buzz has gone around far and wide with leading lady Park Shin Hye as their brand ambassador. Backed by innovative research and development — as well as a botanical garden grown in their own backyard — Mamonde specialises in harvesting fresh blooms straight from nature, which are then processed into active ingredients and bottled into a premium beauty range chock-full of various benefits. Eager to give this floral-inspired collection a whirl? Here are three bestsellers to pop into your shopping cart:

1. Rose Water Toner, $38
You don't have to travel to Morocco to soak in the goodness of their famed Damask rose; Mamonde's popular toner packs 90.89 per cent of the stuff into a hydrating formula that cleanses and soothes all complexions, even for those with sensitive or dry skin. It can also be used four others ways as a facial mist, soaked into a sheet mask and on the hair and body.

2. Cover Powder Cushion with SPF 50+/PA+++, $44
Korea has cornered the market when it comes to cushion technology, but Mamonde does one better with their Cover Powder Cushion. Infused with the essence of peach flower to eliminate the appearance of blemishes, grease, dry spots and darkening, this is the flawless coverage compact set to be your new Holy Grail foundation.

3. Highlight Lip Tint, $18
Packed with colour-enhanced pigments that deliver an intense payoff in one swipe, this is a huge step up from the watery tints you've been chucking into the bin. Easily blended out for that gradient lip look, the initial glossy wet texture dries down into a soft matte finish with a lightweight feel. In fact, Park Shin Hye's go-to shade is No.6 Pin Spot.
