It Radiant Brightening Toner

Preparing the skin before make up application is a must! Load up on hydration by using the It Radiant Brightening Toner; this won’t only revitalise and nourish your skin but it will also give you an extra luminescent glow due to its “Skin-Brightening Aurora Particles”!

It Radiant CC Cream

Want to look fresh despite the scorching heat? The It Radiant CC Cream will help you achieve that lit-from-within glow while providing your skin enough moisture, but won’t leave your face feeling sticky or greasy. Perfect for the summer!

Prime Primer Classic Matte

Prevent the heat from melting away your make-up with this primer! It controls sebum, minimises the appearance of pores and fine lines, and creates a smooth canvas for makeup application.

It Radiant CC Sun Base

Prime Primer Finish Powder

Step up your make up’s longevity by setting everything in place with a finishing powder. This finely-milled translucent powder will prevent your make up from budging— no need to worry about the sun messing it all up! Not only is this talc and paraben-free, but it also contains natural ingredients that smoothens the skin by minimising the appearance of pores and fine lines.

Eye Love Tattoo Brow

Keep your brows on-point for days with the Eye Love Tattoo Brow! It’s a soft-tipped brow pen that helps create natural-looking eyebrows that can last for 3 to 7 days, so you won't need to go through the hassle of drawing your eyebrows every day!

Tinted Love Melting Balm

Avoid chapped lips and keep your pout moisturised with the Tinted Love Melting Balm. Infused with strawberry, blueberry and raspberry extracts, this product helps in preventing free radicals from adding wrinkles to your lips. It has the hydrating abilities of a lip balm and the vivid pigmentation of a lipstick! 

It Radiant Brightening Mist

Suffering from dry, coarse, and dehydrated skin due to the summer weather? Rejuvenate your skin by spraying your face with the It Radiant Brightening Mist. Its “White Flower Water” content will give your skin a healthy glow while restoring its moisture that will keep you refreshed for the rest of the day.
