The 411 in the beauty world right now.
Fenty Beauty drops a collection of sheer lipsticks
Contrary to what the Kylie Stans might believe, you don’t really want to overdo it with your lippies. Enter the Fenty Beauty Slip Shine Sheer Shiny Lipstick ($35). This new range features 10 shades of sheer, hydrating lippies that offer lasting comfort and are great for daily use.   The lightweight, nourishing lipstick is infused with hydrating pomegranate oil to instantly condition puckers in just one swipe. Expect wearable nudes, pinks and pops of reds that come equipped with a buildable formula and creamy texture for fuller-looking lips. The Dior Addict Stellar Shine range adds eight new shades
Last year, the French house debuted its Dior Addict Stellar Shine collection featuring pigmented lippies that gave puckers a pretty luxurious, high shine finish. Fast forward to 2020 and it has revealed eight new shades ($52 each) inspired by the house’s founder and couture heritage. That translates to a palette of sophisticated hues like orange and plums, complementing the materiaos used in the couture designs like tulle, metallic leather, satin and sequinned fabrics.   Along with the launch, the brand has also introduced a new exclusive set ($208) that comes in a pink clutch inspired by the iconic Dior Saddle bag. The kit features four Dior Addict Stellar Shine lipsticks in shade 976 Be Dior, 536 Lucky, 859 Diorinfinity and 667 Pink Meteor. Nars drops an all-pink collection fashion girls are going to love
Calling all fans of the iconic blush shade Orgasm, here’s some good news: the brand has introduced its latest pink-centric collection that includes a new shade that’s deeper and bolder known as Orgasm X.   The range, which is also known as Orgasm X, comprises the Blush ($$52); Cheek Palette ($75); two Quad Eyeshadows in Orgasm and Orgasm X ($80); two Oil-Infused Lip Tints ($40); a Mini Orgasm Eyeshadow Palette ($45); and an Ultimate Orgasm Set ($70).   The powder formulation boasts buildable and blendable textures while ensuring a vibrant colour payoff, while its Oil-Infused Lip Tints promise long-lasting hydration, comfort and plumper puckers. Ksisters just debuted its first in-house label
The Korean beauty, fashion and lifestyle e-tail space known for curating cult brands has just launched its first-ever in-house label, Jung Beauty. Named after founder Jungmin, the brand aims to create products that are catered to the needs of the modern-day working mum, ensuring effectiveness and fuss-free applications.   Its first product, a 2 Step Steaming Hair Spa, is a quick DIY haircare two-step mask treatment that is said to mimic the effects of any in-salon hair treatment to achieve softer, smoother and healthier tresses.   The first step, which consists of a self-steaming mask, contains a cocktail of ingredients such as hydrolysed keratin, gold, coconut oil and silk amino acids that work together to repair and strengthen damaged – and broken – protein bonds while delivering long-lasting moisture to the hair shafts. To further amplify the results, a Heat Revival Complex is infused into the formula for a self-steaming effect.   The second step – a leave-in keratin essence – is formulated with hydrolysed keratin to treat damaged locks, resulting from the excessive use of heat styling products, chemical treatments and constant exposure to harmful environmental aggressors such as UV rays. Urban Decay goes big on drama for its new eyeshadow palette
Despite is name, the Urban Decay Naked Ultraviolet Eyeshadow Palette ($83) has nothing to do with the cold dystopian sic-fi flick starring Milla Jovovich. Rather, this is vibrant and camp outing inspired by ’90s eye makeup.   The 12 shades here range from violet to neutral so you can use it for both experimental and wearable veryday eye makeup. It also features a combination of metallic, matte and shimmer finishes in raspberry, peach and magenta tones to suit all skin tones. One shade we’re loving: Lucid, which is a holographic mint green for an iridescent dramatic finish.
