The beauty industry is always on the move, with product releases left and right. As such, it's great to be in the know over which products are worth checking out.

Here are the 5 mini reviews of beauty products--from eyeliner, to skincare, and fragrance--that we spotted in our community.


LadyKin Eyeliners

by qiyunz

"Finest eyeliner I've ever seen! The tip is so slim, it looks like a needle yet very versatile to create lines of different thickness with different strength and angle! That's LadyKin At The Party Vividline Pen Eyeliner. I'm so tempted to use this a my writing penlong lasting and easy to use."

Dr+ Nu:ell Lotions

by Junedujour

"Been hearing so much of Dr+ Nu:ell skincare range, so I was thrilled to be reviewing their Fitting Lotion and Double S Lotion this month. The lightweight gelish texture is not just fast absorbing, but still gives me much needed hydration. I love how plumped and dewy my skin condition looks after a mere week, thanks to it's 6 callus complex (plant stem cell)."

Etude House Any Cushion Pearl Aura

by musicalhouses

"The Any Cushion Pearl Aura is a BB Cushion with 6 "dots" of brightening highlighting liquid (always popular in k-beauty) in addition to the usual BB cream that we see inside the cushion. And yes, the dots are in the sponge, and when you press the dots the highlighter comes out! In practice though, when you use these BB cushions, the puff will end up mixing the two, and the nice dots get blurred after a while. But it is super pretty!"

by amandamisaki

"Covering your flaws and huge face demons. The MAC Pro Longwear concealer lasts for 5-8hours. It does a good job at concealing redness but doesn't do a good job in covering scars."

Maison Martin Margiela Lazy Sunday Morning

by loveforskincare

"Lazy never smelled better. There's a sense of serenity, sunshine and reminds us that life is sweet and it's ok to take your time. It's like having breakfast (and flowers) in bed. Indulge, laze. Maison Martin Margiela (MMM) has bottled up this Sunday indulgence in a 10ml fragrance (S$23), MMM Replica Lazy Sunday Morning EDT. Love rollerballs for traveling!"

Research shows that more than 50% of women across Asia experience sensitive face and body skin in the past 12 months. One of out two women will not visit a skincare professional for their skin condition. The same study shows that 71% and 61% of Filipinas have sensitive face and body skin, respectively. 

While sensitivity might be one of women's greatest strength, it has no place in our lives when it comes to our skin. So Physiogel is taking a stand and freeing women everywhere with their #FreeInMySkin Movement. With their differentiated, science-based, dermatologist-recommended solution for dry and sensitive skin, the campaign seeks to enable women to find the right solutions to free themselves from dry and sensitive skin.

This is in conjunction with the latest release of their new Physiogel Daily Moisture Therapy line, a differentiated science-led solution featuring the unique Physiogel BioMimic Technology® that works to soothe and repair the skin’s natural moisture barrier while being non-comedogenic, and free from soap, preservatives, perfumes and colourants.

Physiogel’s #FreeInMySkin Movement starts with self discovery, as it aims to help women be more aware of themselves so they can uncover their full potential. It challenges women to look past their skin insecurities in the hope of helping them fulfil dreams they have always wanted to achieve. 

This journey to self discovery starts with taking the Freedom List Challenge--an online lifestyle quiz that represents what women can achieve when freed from dry and sensitive skin. 

The result of the quiz provides a glimpse to one’s personality that ranges from being a savvy collaborator, inspiring innovator, charismatic motivator and elegant sophisticate--revealing worthwhile hints that may help them embrace and live life to the fullest.

There is now no need to feel hindered, bothered, and uncomfortable with dry, itchy, irritated skin. Set your skin free with the proven science of Physiogel and discover your true potential!


Love Cushion Compacts? Then you'll love this one as Lancôme brings their latest Blanc Expert Cushion Compact to the market. It's a hybrid makeup product in an unprecedented texture, offering a unique, effortless result with a surprising fresh glow on-skin. It also gives refined skin texture and a wonderful overall feeling of well-being. 

What we love most about this cushion is that it is a long wear formula that gives skin a dewy and rosy complexion all day while staying strong against sweat and sebum. Plus (and here's the best part) it's a versatile product that functions as a primer, BB cream, and foundation. Apply one layer as your primer to hold your foundation to last all day, apply a second layer for it to function like a BB cream for sheer coverage, and apply a third layer for a full-on foundation-like coverage! The cushion is also available in 8 shades to quit a variety of Asian skintones.

The Lancôme Cushionista Blanc Expert Cushion Compact is now available at all Lancôme counters in Malaysia and priced at RM143.10 for refill and RM37.10 for the Cushion Case.
