From hydrating serums to highly pigmented lip tints perfect for every day, these are all the newest Korean beauty buys you need to cart out ASAP.
#1: Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Vitalizing Cream, $198
Powered by the brand’s antioxidant-rich plum blossom and combined with five germinated fruits and seeds as well as yuzu, this helps to protect skin against harmful environmental aggressors while hydrating it. Bonus: it has a soft, cushion-like texture that does not feel oily post-application. #2: Laneige Air Light Sun Stick, $30
Thanks to a selective oil balancing powder, this keeps skin matte without an oily or shiny finish. It also contains xylitol extract and rosehip oil to protect the skin barrier that is prone to damage from harmful UV rays while imparting a host of vitamins and moisture to plump up and revitalise tired-looking skin that has been affected by environmental aggressors. Its asymmetrical diagonal shape allows for easy, effortless application. #3: Laneige White Dew Tone Up Fluid SPF35/PA++, $52
This is said to protect skin from eight different types of environmental hazards while boosting radiance and evening out skin tone. It contains a patented Saururus Chinensis extract that is combined with a vitamin C derivative and ginger oil to deeply moisturise skin and correct dull, sallow skin tone. #4: Hera Sensual Intense, $43
This new liquid lipstick comes with two finishes (velvet and glaze) and is said to help fade away the look of lip lines. It also has a weightless formula that feels comfortable on puckers and gives intense colour payoff with just one swipe. #5: Laneige Time Freeze Skin Emulsion, $65
This anti-wrinkle emulsion delivers skin-elasticity boosting ingredients directly to the skin through a High Pressure Technology, which also prevents the evaporation of water within the skin’s barrier, for a suppler, plumper complexion. #6: Mamonde Vital Vitamin Cream, $45
Seven different antioxidant-rich vitamins are encapsulated into three types of petal-shaped that immediately melt into the skin upon application to regenerate, strengthen and hydrate skin. #7: Hera Sensual Tint, $43
Lightweight and comfortable, this highly pigmented lip tint is made with a high concentration of fine micro pigments and a tripled concentration of colour tint for vivid and long-lasting colour payoff. The applicator is designed after the shape of a Cupid’s bow to achieve either a “just-bitten” gradient lip or a bold full-coverage lip. #8: Laneige Cheek Glow, $35
This cushion blusher comes in two different shades — one, a rosy pink and the other a coral — and is designed specially to suit Asian skin tones. The cushion puff blends the blusher smoothly onto the cheeks for a rosy sheen of color to impart a delicate, radiant glow. #9: Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum EX 5 Scents Set, $130
This set comes with five of the brand’s popular First Care Activating Serum in travel sizes, each of which feature different scents like woody, floral, fruity, spicy and it’s classic scent, herbal. #10: Mamonde Floral Hydro Emulsion, $30

Said to be fast-absorbing and as lightweight as water, this lightweight emulsion instantly helps to hydrate dry and parched complexions. #11: Laneige Stained Glow Lip Balm, $33 each
Formulated with murumuru, shea butter, a cocktail of nourishing oils, as well as the brand’s Berry Mix Complex and Moisture Wrap Technology, this deeply hydrating tinted lip balm helps to plump up and condition puckers for a supple pout complete with a glistening glow that goes on for hours. It is also made with a Smart Tinting Colour Technology, which reacts with the moisture and pH levels of the lips so each shade is always different and unique. #12: Innisfree x Disney Toy Story Buzz Lightyear Set, $37
