You Need To Get Excited Over These New Korean Beauty Launches

#1: Laneige Layering Cover Cushion and Concealing Base, $43
This is an innovative two-in-one cushion foundation that comes with two parts – a concealer and a foundation portion. The former is a high-coverage balm-textured concealer that is formulated with the brand’s Aqua Melting Technology to help it blend seamlessly into the skin, camouflaging spots, pores and blemishes, and has a balm-like consistency and priming properties that minimises excess sebum. The latter contains illuminating jewel powder to give skin a rosy glow, and antioxidant-rich litchi skin extract to protect the skin from external aggressors. Bonus: It contains a Water Capture System, a combination of purified water from France and hydro-ion mineral water that releases and adds a surge of moisture to the skin. Another key part to know about this product is its puff. It is shaped like a water droplet and designed for use as a dual puff, comprising a velvet puff and air puff. Used with the concealing base, the velvet puff has a precision tip and shorter fibers that help to reach curved areas, under eyes and other smaller regions of the face for a total cover effect. On the other end, the air puff is perforated to give you natural-looking coverage. #2: Laneige Lip Glowy Balm, $14 each
With the same hydrating ingredients as the brand’s popular Lip Sleeping Mask, this lightweight tinted lip balm works by sheathing lips in a breathable moisture layer that provides protection on the outside and nourishes from the inside with a generous dose of murumuru and shea butters. Enriched with rich fatty acids, the natural murumuru butter combats dry lips with its moisturising linoleic acid while shea butter provides a powerful surge of hydration to dehydrated lips. #3: Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tint, $8.90
This richly pigmented gel tint contains a dose of berry extracts to hydrate puckers throughout the day. Available in two limited edition shades, they sit comfortably on the lips and gives it a healthy, plump appearance. #4: Etude House Colorful Drawing Water Color Blusher, $16.10 each
Available in five lightweight and long-lasting shades (Balsam Flower Red, Bouquet Rose, Daisy Coral, Baby’s Breath Pink and Lilac Lavender), these blushers blend perfectly on skin, leaving it looking radiant with a natural wash of colour perfect for every day. #5: Cremorlab T.E.N Mineral Treatment Essence, $58
This is rich in natural ingredients and contains a potent blend of botanical actives such as green tea extract and centella asiatica to nourish skin. It restores skin’s natural moisture while boosting its radiance at the same time. The best part? It helps to minimise enlarged pores, diminish wrinkles, even out skin tone, smooth and improve elasticity. #6: Innisfree Vivid Creamy Tint, $16
With a soft, weightless creamy texture, the lip tint glides on smoothly and effortlessly. It also contains botanical oils such as extracts of chamomile, olive leaf, lavender, camellia and canola with a dewy and water-retaining shield that coats puckers for comfortable wear all day long. #7: Aprilskin Calendula Peel off Pack, $23, Guardian
With a calendula-infused formula that helps to calm and hydrate skin, this peel-off mask delivers powerful brightening, detoxifying and purifying effects. #8: Aprilskin Rose Water Modeling Mask, $8
This DIY rubbery modeling mask is infused with hydrating rose water and pearl powder that helps to soothe irritation and relieve dryness. #9: Su:m37 Hydrating Glow Serum
, $160
This contains a trio of exclusive ingredients. Aqua ferm is a unique ingredient that is said to activate the moisture proteins found in cells to improve the moisture paths between skin layers and keeps your complexion hydrated throughout the day. Aqua Light, which features truffle-derived yeast extract and Western medicinal herbs, helps to suppress melanin production to even out skin tone and fight pigmentation. Poria Light, extracted from the wild herb Fu Ling, firms and plumps skin to better reflect light. Together, they work to intensely hydrate, resulting in a smoother, clearer and more even complexion. #10: Medicube Red Capsule Collection, $20, Guardian
This hypoallergenic cushion foundation is formulated with centella asiatica and tea tree leaf oil to heal, conceal and calm troubled skin. It consists of a pink-base calamine to protect and ivory-base centella asiatica to calm and soothe skin. Like this?
