Almost everyday, a brand releases a product or collaboration that is sure to tempt you into buying, even if you already have a ton of unused products on your vanity table. That’s how I feel every time I scroll Instagram, so I wanted to share some products that caught my eye recently!
I started writing this as a one-off post in July but I discovered that every month I would definitely have something new I want to try, so I’m going to try and make this a monthly affair.
Etude House Bubble Tea Sleeping Pack
There’s a stereotype that Asians love to drink bubble tea, and to be fair they ain’t far from the mark. What I love most about this is that the bubbles are actually part of the product and not just packaging aesthetic – you’re supposed to ‘gently rupture the bubbles with the spatula onto the palm and rub with the fingers to mix the bubbles and pack’. This definitely sounds like a fun masking experience.
Holika Holika Lazy & Joy Gudetama Eyeshadow
Come on, it’s Gudetama!! To be honest, the reason why I first bought anything from Holika Holika was because of this collaboration with our favourite egg friend. Packaging aside, I think the colours in this palette are great for most skin tones, and especially for beginners – it’s hard to go wrong with nudes and browns! The colour payoff also looks quite intense from swatches, which I really want to find in an eyeshadow product from a K-beauty brand (it’s really rare to find Korean brand eyeshadows that give an intense payoff, please don’t ask me why).
16Brand Mochi Pact Peach Light
Who would have thought this multi-use pact can be applied as eyeshadow, highlighter, pearlescent lips – almost anywhere on your face? The swatches look super amazing and the model’s skin looks so radiant that I am envious. Very envious. I want to look like I’m in the pink of health too (literally). The only problem is that this doesn’t look like it comes cheap at SGD32 on Shopee
too cool for school Art Class By Rodin Highlighter
I think by now all my readers would think that I am obsessed with this line of products from too cool for school. I raved about their blush, lusted over their contour, and now I’m eyeing their highlighter 🤦 but honestly, look at how pretty it is, and that glow! To be fair I think the model already had super clear skin, but it looked a lot more 3D after that highlight, which is especially great if your features look flat in photos (aka me).
