Just got your pay cheque? Perfect timing. Here’s a few of our suggestions on what you should do with that full bank account. A new month also beckons new beauty releases, and here are our favourites.

Fenty Beauty minis

Your favourite Fenty Beauty favourites are now also available in mini sizes. Now you can look fly anywhere you’re going. No more excuses of not being able to bring out your Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder because it’s too bulky. Other minis include Pro Filt’r Mini Instant Retouch Primer, Flyliner and Pro Filt’r Amplifying Eye Primer which come in a set, and Sun Stalk’r Instant Warmth Bronzer and Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick which are packaged together.

Etude House Rose Bomb Eyeshadow Palette

Paint (or in this case, blend) the colours of roses on your eyes. Etude House releases two new eyeshadow palettes — Best Loved consists 15 of Etude House’s best-selling shades while the Rose Bomb is inspired by roses — which is our favourite. 15 shades of various textures; matte, shimmer and glitter that can create any look from neutral to bold. You’ll find pinks, browns and purples — basically everything that represent dainty and beautiful rose petal shades that you can now wear on your eyes.

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench range

Peter Thomas Roth Hyaluronic Micro-Bubbling Cloud Mask and Hyaluronic Cloud Hydrating Toner Mist join the Water Drench family. Known for its extremely hydrating properties, these two new products will also do no less but even better. The one that caught our eye is the bubbling mask. It gives a continuous burst of hydration and oxygen from the atmosphere, which then transforms into an energising blanket of micro-bubbles that hydrates the skin. The result is a softer, smoother, healthier and also youthful-looking skin.

Kora Organics Noni Lip Tint

For days that you’re tired of drying lipsticks, this lip tint is the perfect substitute. It’s a nutrient-rich lip balm that treats, nourishes and deeply nourishes the lips. As it’s a certified vegan and organic product, the colour is actually formulated from natural minerals and beetroot juice. Certified organic noni and licorice root help keep the lips hydrated. This lip tint from Kora Organics can also be used on the cheeks for a pop of colour.


Jolin Lee
Unlike most modern-day millennials, Jolin does not need caffeine or alcohol to power through the day (and night). Her eye for beauty is as sharp as her eyeliner flick, and she can spot your unblended eye makeup from a mile away.
