You know you deserve it! Scroll on and get ready to add these new beauty picks that will leave you pampered in no time.
KENZOKI Moisturising Lotus Mask
Dull and dry skin is not something you can easily cover up with makeup so making sure that your skin is looking healthy and hydrated should always be a top priority. Thankfully, KENZOKI adds a new member to its White Lotus range and it's about to become your new favourite. The Moisturising Lotus Mask captures the beauty benefits and moisturising power of the lotus plant essence. Its fresh gel formulation is also infused with hyaluronic acid for maximum hydration and white lotus glycostat that's known for trapping free radicals that often damage the skin. The result? Softer, plumper and more radiant-looking skin that will encourage you to 'go natural' a lot more! Plus, did we mention that the packaging also looks very sleek and pretty?
Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Drama Matte lipsticks
Want your lipstick to pop more, stand out more and just be 'more'? The Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Drama Matte lipsticks promise to do just that. With 15 bold and dramatic colours to choose from, you can definitely go all out with your pout no matter what mood you're in or style you prefer. The new light powder technology provides intense pigment and long-wearing non-transferable compounds that make sure your lip colour stays intact from day to night. But if you think that's it, there's more. It also has light-diffusing gel and jojoba oil to ensure that even if it has an ultra-matte finish, it won't look and feel dry throughout the duration of wear.
Eve Lom Radiance Transforming Mask
Another mask that you'll want to add to your self-care stash is this new release from Eve Lom. Promising an intensive treatment that aims to transform your tired skin, as the name suggests, this gentle yet effective exfoliant claims to show immediate results after use. Using an Australian caviar lime called Lime Pearl™ as its natural source of AHA to help promote cell turnover and renewal, bid dull skin goodbye with this in your arsenal.
