Now, add to cart

As the local beauty industry has returned to its former glory with drops by the day, we have taken it into our hands to talk weekly about some of the best beauty launches. Some are noteworthy for their instant results, while others are special simply because they make us feel and look good while looking good themselves. 

Here, the top 10 beauty launches that landed on GRAZIA’s beauty desk or piqued our interest this week.

Pictured Above: 1. Two Timer
It’s hard to get excited about a lip gloss that also has the properties of a cream and plumper considering how many brands have launched their own, but this one that can be used as a glow-imbuing highlighter that sits right on the skin has us feeling so. Expect no patchiness or piling and instead, a beautiful subtle sheen that lasts for up to six hours.
Clarins Lip Perfector, $38

2. Bloom Again

A rose like no other: This one has major clean girl energy as its bouquet of roses, magnolia, and green pear evokes the imagery of fancy hotel soap with a touch of subtle florals. It’s also a perfect summer floral signature as it becomes sparklier as the temperatures rise instead of wilting in the background.
& Other Stories Rose Revival Eau de Toilette, $55

3. A Firm Hand

Could you completely control your skin’s ageing process with your own hands? Yes, you certainly can with this decadent serum that allows you to do so even before it begins with something called Future-Sculpt Technology. Said technology allows the formula’s blend of golden botanical extracts to slow the process down while targeting the most obvious sign of it: sagginess around the jaw, cheeks, and neck.
Clé de Peau Beauté Firming Serum Supreme, $460


UV reapplication is finally convenient as this product’s puff picks up and disperses the right amount of cream while its dreamily light texture doesn’t interfere with makeup. Pro tip: Roll the puff over your face instead of patting or swiping to ensure a seamless application.
Givenchy Beauty Skin Perfecto Compact Cream SPF 30 PA++, $86

5. Gold Rush

This liquid highlighter is the beauty equivalent of a night out in town: glamorous, sexy, and alluring. With a subtle rose gold sheen that flatters all skin tones, its serum-like thinness allows you to control the level of shimmer you want to achieve on any part of yourself. It also imbues the skin with a soothing and hydrating black rose extract that ensures it doesn’t highlight skin texture.
Gucci Illuminateur de Beauté, $80

6. So Simple

The simplicity of this sleeping mask which has a gel texture is what makes it so versatile. Slather it on to alleviate dryness overnight, use it as a buffer to cushion the effects of retinol, or do what we do: apply it before layering a hydrating sheet mask over for the juiciest skin ever. Just make sure you don’t accidentally fall asleep as the mask has a calming fragrance to it.
KOSÉ INFINITY Premium Sleeping Pack, $52


The brand that launched a figurative 1,000 cushion compacts into the market and practically created the category themselves just one-upped themselves with two new versions: Matte which provides heavy coverage coupled with all-day sebum and oil control versus Glow which imbues a lit-from-within radiance and a formula powered by brightening actives like vitamin C and niacinamide. What do they have in common though? Both conceal pores and fine lines while ensuring a full day’s worth of wear.
LANEIGE NEO Cushions, $70


This is for the girlies who have been hankering for a lipstick with the Goldilocks principle in mind: not too matte, not too shiny, and instead, has what we beauty editors call a my-lips-but-better finish. Besides also saturating the lips in vivid colour with one swipe, it also conditions them with flavourful guava oil that also ensures wear of up to six hours.
Laura Mercier High Vibe Lip Color, $52

9. Fast Game

Doctor Maryam Zamani is the secret behind the glowy skin of Serena Williams, Sonam Kapoor, Gwyneth Paltrow and Princess Charlene of Monaco to name just a few but she can also be the one behind yours with this multitasking product. Formulated with AHAs and fruit enzymes, it cleanses makeup, dirt, and dead skin cells away when used as a wash but completely eradicates skin texture when left on for 10 minutes as a mask.
MZ Skin Cleanse & Clarify Dual Action AHA Cleanser & Mask, $130

10. Surf and Turf

This product gets the prize for the longest name of an eye cream and another one for how extravagantly decadent it is from the formula down to the applicator it comes with. The former is a mix of Japan’s most expensive skincare ingredients like the rejuvenating Enmei herb, brightening Akoya pearl extract, and firming green treasured silk. As for the latter, it’s a small and curved tool made of porcelain that feels refreshing on the skin, especially after a long day.
Shiseido Future Solution LX Legendary Enmei Ultimate Brilliance Eye Cream, $440
