The Newest Korean Beauty Brands In Singapore To Get On Your Radar (Yes, There's More)

South Korea is widely known as an Asian beauty mecca and while there are already tons of brands and products available here in Singapore, it doesn't hurt to have more. Ahead, three new K-beauty brands that have just landed on our shores and the products to get.
Nakeup Face
A play on the words “naked face” and “no makeup”, this popular beauty brand believes that confidence comes from natural beauty and having great skin. Its products are saturated with a host of skin-loving ingredients to provide nutrients while enhancing your natural features and covering up any flaws and imperfections. The best part? It is eco-friendly too. #1: Nakeup Face 10% AHA Scaling Cream, $33.90
If you have acne-prone skin, hyperpigmentation and scars, this is the cream you need. It is made with 10 per cent of AHA (a gentle yet effective chemical exfoliant) to dissolve any excess sebum and keratin that may lead to decongestion, clogged pores and unwanted breakouts. Additionally, it even helps prep skin for better absorption of following skincare products and even hydrates complexions. #2: Nakeup face Coverking Powder Cushion, $43.90
As its name suggests, this cushion compact features amazing coverage that is reportedly better than a concealer. It features a Three-Cover Layering System that feels lightweight on skin while ensuring all blemishes and spots and concealed. Said to last for up to 19 hours, this provides longlasting wear, is sweat and water resistant and even eliminates excess shine. #3: Nakeup Face Waterking Cover Cushion, $43.90
If you prefer a cushion compact that’s a lot more hydrating and gives a radiant, dewy finish, then this is your best bet. It is formulated with aloe vera and lotus flower extracts to moisturise while still providing enough coverage to conceal any blemishes or dark circles. It also imparts a luminous glow to the skin. Unpa Cosmetics
Originally developed as an online beauty platform, this beauty brand is known for its slightly cute, highly Instagrammable packaging and innovative products. The brand uses its influential online presence to analyse up-and-coming trends and consumers’ needs to formulate key products to meet the demands of customers. #1: Unpa Cosmetics Bubi Bubi Lip, $19.90
Known as the brand’s best-selling product, this gentle lip scrub, works as a chemical peel thanks to a string of extracts like witch hazel, peach and papaya to slough away dead skin cells to reveal smoother and softer puckers that are ready for lipstick application. #2: Unpa Cosmtics Bubi Bubi Face, $33.90
Similar to its lip scrub, this is a gentle peeling gel (which also doubles up as a cleanser) derived from witch hazel, papaya and pineapple enzymes that work together to remove any gunk and debris trapped within pores. #3: Unpa Cosmetics Cha Cha Toothpaste, $19.90
Powered by charcoal, this black coloured toothpaste helps to eliminate pesky odours and thoroughly removes any cavity. It leaves a minty scent and brightens your teeth with naturally activated coconut carbon. 9CC
The brand was formed through intense scientific research of marine skincare ingredients. All of its products are formulated with marine extracts to provide nourishment. #1: 9CC Collagen Ball, $5.90
Made with marine collagen, hyaluronic acid and sweet potato ogliosaccharide, this collagen ball is meant to be mixed with other skincare products to increase suppleness, elasticity and boost hydration levels. How it works: pump out any skincare product of your choice (lotion, serum – you name it) onto the collagen ball. Mix together to let the ball dissolve and massage it onto your skin. Simple.
