With the Internet and international shipping, we can get our hands on almost any beauty product even if the brand is not available in our country. Even if we are from the eastern hemisphere, it's safe to assume that most of our cult favourites are from Western brands. But what if we tell you that there are amazing Asian dupes for your faves?
That's right! Get ready to save on shipping (or fees due to imports + international taxes) as we give you great Eastern alternatives for Western beauty brands you are currently loving.
Singapore's Katfood vs. Lush
Malaysia's Empro Cosmetic brow products vs. Benefit
Philippines' Pink Sugar lipsticks vs. MAC Cosmetics
South Korea: Laneige's Water Bank Serum vs. Chanel
Japan's Isehan Kiss Me Heroine Mascara vs. Too Faced
Too Faced's Better Than Sex mascara has been a holy grail product for many makeup lovers. But for those who have tried the Isehan Kiss Me Heroine Mascara, the crown for lengthening, volumising, and longevity belongs to Japan. Formulated specially for Asian eyes, patrons of this product claim that this will make your lashes fuller and more lush, minus the clump, and will not budge NO. MATTER. WHAT. Even your most trusted cleanser can prove you wrong with how longlasting this beauty pick is. How about that for an HG mascara?
