Kylie Skin posts fake reviews, according to Instagram users



Following criticisms from choosing walnut as a skincare ingredient, the beauty mogul and her skincare line are under fire yet again. After their launch last week, the brand posted initial reviews from a few who have bought the product. Despite being mostly well-received, the post still had backlash. Some commenters claimed Kylie Skin posts fake reviews and suggested they were left by fake accounts. Aside from that, Twitter also called out Kylie Jenner’s poor cleansing technique in her Kylie Skin face wash demo. Despite all the backlash, all Kylie Skin products have been sold out and are still in demand.

In the fashion arena, the retro aesthetic is going strong for a decade now. As for beauty? Not so much. Majority of the most popular cosmetic brands today sport a minimalist look. Sans serif letters, clean lines and single-toned packaging — everything is very sleek and modern. But there's a good chance that that's about to change. Like any other trend, when we get exposed to a certain aesthetic too much, we are inclined to crave the opposite. These days, we're spotting the resurgence of the glam retro look in makeup items. From the classic cake mascara to vintage punk packaging, here are the best vintage-inspired beauty products on the market.


Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder

Kickstarting this list is a beauty product that doesn't just have a new vintage-inspired look but is a vintage product in itself. The Coty Airspun has been around since the 1930s and was used by actresses during the golden age of Hollywood to keep their skin looking matte on camera. In the modern era, variants of the product are now produced to accommodate those who want some colour in their loose powder. If it's up to us, though, we'd love to have that original, classic tin can packaging back.


Guerlain Météorites Illuminating Powder Pearls

Whether we saw it in a retro movie or from our grandmother's vanity kit, we've always had a faint memory of the puff and powder combo with the little 'pearls' inside the metallic can. It looks really classy and antique! While you'll find it a challenge to buy one off the shelves in a nearby store today, the aesthetic is not lost. For one, there's Guerlain's Météorites Illuminating Powder Pearls that can serve both as a highlighter and a setting powder. It's a packaging that's meant to be displayed.


Paul & Joe Beaute Gel Blush

Back in the day, blushes (or rouge as they called it) came in a salve-like texture that you can strategically smear on the apples of your cheeks. Some will even use them on their lips because most formulas were also hydrating. Today, powder blushes are the most popular but creams and gels are slowly catching on. With the dewy skin trend, we're anticipating that it will become a staple in our kit soon enough. Want to give it a try? Go for Paul & Joe Beaute Gel Blush, which comes in a pretty, vintage-looking pan.  


Besame Mascara Cake

Out of all the makeup essentials, mascara has got to be the product that had the biggest transformation in the modern era. Admittedly, the design we have today with the tube and brush is a more convenient one. But in terms of aesthetic? The 1920s version wins. Besame's Mascara Cake, which features a pan and separate eyelash brush, will transport you back in time. And don't underestimate it; according to many reviews, this vintage mascara is effective in giving you those natural but defined lashes you see on movie stars from the '50s. 



Jill Stuart Lip Blossom

Reminiscent of the intricate lipstick designs from the 1920s, Jill Stuart's Lip Blossom bullets are truly one of a kind today. From the secret mirror to the crystal detail, the lipstick looks like a true vintage item. But of course, the formula is nothing like the pasty ones from the start of the 20th century. It's creamy and hydrating but not tacky and gives a full coverage finish that still looks natural on the lips. 


HERA x Au Jour Le Jour Collection


HERA x Au Jour Le Jour Collection


The latest to launch in this list, the collaboration collection between Korean cosmetic brand HERA and Italian fashion brand Au Jour Le Jour channels a look from a much more recent era (but already 30 years ago!) — 1980s punk. The packaging is adorned with elements of glitter and bold red kisses. Even the shades featured in the six-colour eyeshadow palette and lipsticks are great for recreating a retro '80s look.

Part of the joy that comes with makeup is the freedom to try on different looks. Whether you’re a fan of bright pink eyeshadow, someone who gravitates towards a bold lip colour, or both, the sky is the limit when it comes to face colour. While painting your face challenges your creativity, you may find yourself being challenged after putting your makeup on, too. That is the challenge of taking stubborn, heavy-duty makeup off. But fret not as we sought the help of three makeup pros to share why they love the ​NIVEA Professional Micellar Water ​for removing their makeup and why you need it in your kit, too.




It removes stubborn, waterproof makeup powerfully


After a long day at work and doing errands in between, there’s nothing more satisfying than taking your makeup off. Let it be a therapeutic moment to end the day — no tugging, no rubbing — with the NIVEA Professional Micellar Water. It’s uniquely formulated with a blend of MicellAIR Complex, which combines Micellar Technology and dry oils to remove even the most stubborn waterproof makeup with minimal effort.



“It literally feels like you’re using just water but it manages to remove my heavy waterproof makeup thoroughly,” says makeup lover Cleo Kim. “I wear heavy makeup daily so I use it daily, too, and it makes makeup removal fast and easy.”


It leaves no greasy residue


After you’ve painted your face, it’s inevitable that some mishaps might happen. An eyeliner might smudge or your mascara might run. When that happens, a remover that isn’t greasy is a must. Can you imagine erasing a makeup mishap only to make the matter worse? For this, pro makeup artist and Cosmetic Science grad Airin Lee relies on the NIVEA Professional Micellar Water’s unique blend with dry oils, saying, “It doesn’t feel sticky and I like that it gives off a clean feeling after using it — no grease at all. So it’s great for correcting makeup on the go without having to start over.”



Because dry oils are fast-absorbing and have a light texture, they don’t leave a greasy texture — perfect for correcting makeup mishaps.

It's gentle but effective


Whether you’re testing a makeup look for a client or just having fun playing with your stash, going from one look to another is a breeze when you have a remover that’s not only powerful against dirt, grease and gunk but also cares for your skin. Because the NIVEA Professional Micellar Water can remove stubborn waterproof makeup easily, you don’t have to tug at your skin, which eventually causes wrinkles and fine lines.

“I use it to test out different looks not just on my clients but also on myself,” makeup artist Vinna Er says. “I like that it can remove heavy eye makeup and waterproof mascara without causing discomfort for contact lens users like me. I can try multiple makeup looks one after the other without my eyes — and skin — getting irritated.”



It’s made with skin-caring black tea extract that’s packed with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. It’s also fragrance-free, making it perfect for those with sensitive skin.



Get the NIVEA Professional Micellar Water 400ml (SGD19.90) now at all Guardian, Watsons stores & other major retail stores.
