It's great being able to experience makeup, fragrances and skincare IRL, since sometimes touching, smelling, and let's be real... swatching is the best way to tell if something suits us, and if we like it. But if you're guilty of trawling through Instagram to sniff out the latest beauty buzz, then you'll know there's a plethora of makeup, skincare and tools out there that have not quite reached our sunny shores. Here are our picks for the best things money can buy.
KKW Beauty Crème Lipsticks and Lipliners Unlike sister Kylie who stuck mainly to lip products and eyeshadow palettes, Kim Kardashian is going the whole hog. Her latest product is a Crème Lipstick (in eight shades) and three lipliners. The lippies come in shades of nude, brown and taupe to complement her already extensive collection of concealers, contour products and highlighters for that Kim K glow. As always these are exclusively available online. Available from 9 June
Glamglow x My Little Pony Gravity Mud Our inner child is screaming out for this glitter-flecked, peel-off mask, so we can shine bright like diamonds. In three versions: A pink for Pinkie Pie, purple for Twilight Sparkle and black for Princess Luna, these actually work to firm, lift and tone the skin. Currently unavailable in Sephoras here, you have to hit up the US store or glamglow.com and send them via international couriers or to helpful friends.
Give Me Glow Cosmetics Summer Vibes Palette Are you vibing with the cheery colours and wearable neutrals in this eyeshadow palette? Well, a lot of people were which is why it's currently sold out, but fingers crossed there's a new drop soon.
The Ordinary Suncare Love it or hate it, Deciem, the brand that produces The Ordinary has been making waves in 2018. The brand is set to release a range of suncare that comes in mineral and invisible UV filter formulas and with SPF ranging from 15 to 35, and from the looks of it they are likely to be tinted.
Melt Cosmetics Gemini Palette, US$58 The last drop of Melt Cosmetics Gemini Palette is happening on 2 June so if you favour unusual shades like olive mustard and vermillion on your eyes, you should put in a phone alert.
Ouai Sun of a Beach Ombré Spray, US$24 Spray-in highlights? If you have bleached or highlighted hair and want to create even more brightness, you can try this spray in lightener from Ouai, that is not available in Singapore.
