And if you have any doubts, cast your worries aside – all of the recommendations have been tried and tested by yours truly. Onward to Episode 10 of our “Best of Beauty” series! (We’d love to hear about YOUR all-time favourite beauty products too – just leave in the comments below.)
Hera UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture
It seems like my collection of beauty cushions gets bigger every month. My latest find – and possibly my favourite so far for off-duty days – is Hera’s UV Mist Cushion. The product is so thin, light and easy to blend, yet provides good coverage. I find Hera’s foundation colours quite suitable compared to cushions from other K-beauty brands, which can be too white.
Dior Addict Lip Tattoo Long-Wear Coloured Tint
Dior is just winning it lately with its lip products. Remember what we said about the Lacquer Sticks being the most moisturising one yet? I think the Lip Tattoo may be Dior’s best lip product by far. It stays on throughout the night and is not drying at all. It’s kind of life changing.
Bioderma Hydrabio Serum
This one was quite a random find that ended up surprising me. A light serum that you can just splash onto your skin, it is perfect for summer without leaving your skin feeling sticky.
Becca Backlight Priming Filter
I’ve had this for quite some time, but I’m just rediscovering what an excellent product it is. (Team KULALA’s Candice loves it as well.) Not only does it hold your makeup for the whole day, it gives you a subtle, pearly glow even without any highlighter on. Of course, if you want a more radiant glow, Becca’s powdered highlighters are some of the best I’ve tried.
Skin Inc Facial In A Flash Mask Series
Skin Inc finally has sheet masks and trust me, they were well worth the wait. Made of hydrogel, the masks fit well onto the face, but the best part is that you get to customise the different benefits for the top and bottom half of your face. For example, you can use the brightening Platinum Mask on top and anti-aging Rose Gold Mask below. I find a good 15 minutes is all you need for rehydrated and glowing skin. (This mask recently made it into our list of the best sheet masks ever, read it here.)
