The Beauty Products On Our Hot List This Month


This September, we're focusing on everything beauty-related. From exploring the latest skincare craze to trying out new makeup, we're on the hunt for the best of the best in beauty. Out of all the items that we've discovered this month, these are on top of our list. 



An uncovered red lipstick with red casing


"'Dress your lips like a painter would glorify a canvas.' Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director of Dior Make-up, said it right — but only if our painted lips don’t scream for help from ultra-pigmented long wear. The new Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge Lipstick apparently takes the discomfort away without compromising on colour for 12 straight hours, and that, my ladies, is a dream come true. My first Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge colour? The 999 Ultra Dior, of course."



A bottle of pink perfume

"There's something admirable about following routines, beauty and otherwise, but spontaneity has its charm. And that's exactly what the Givenchy Live Irresistible's newest scent, Blossom Crush, wants to embody. It's the perfect scent to associate with the many spontaneous trips and events I'd like to experience before the year closes."

Cheek blush in a blue casing


"Isn't this Laduree Les Merveilleuses Cheek Colour Powder the cutest? Blushes are my second obsession next to lipsticks and this just caught my eye with its Ladurée tea-inspired packaging. As for quality, I love that it gives that nice glowy and natural finish, perfect subtle makeup looks. Did I mention it also comes in six shades and in six classy containers? Definitely a must-add to any makeup lover's collection!"

Two bottles of serum

"I've been hearing only good things about the Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum EX. Skincare fanatics are raving about how it made their skin luminous and glowing. Someone even made a 'tissue test' to prove its efficacy in helping serums and moisturisers penetrate the skin. Aside from that, you can also use this as a hydrating mist or as a primer before putting on makeup. Recently, I learned that I have dehydrated skin so I'm doing my best to restore my skin barrier's health. With the help of hydrating sheet masks, occlusive moisturisers and oil-based serums, I've already seen some progress. But I think having Sulwhasoo's First Care Activating Serum in my arsenal would definitely speed things up."

A compact highlighter


"If there's something I can't resist, it's got to be glitter makeup. To celebrate their first anniversary, Fenty Beauty launched new shimmering products. The one that caught my eye is the Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil, which creates a 3D-like sparkle for the face and body. With all its glitz and glamour, I'm set to shine brightly once I lay my hands on them."

An open packet of glow powder


"As a girl who is in constant pursuit of healthy, glowing skin, the latest in FRESH’s arsenal of skincare called out to me. The new Vitamin Nectar Glow Powder promises brighter skin in an instant. How could one say no to that kind of pick-me-up?"
