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.

The perfect gold eyeshadow—never too glittery or chunky—called Secondsight is encased within this palette and is grounded with other party-ready shades like a glacial teal Hyperdream and prismatic iris Pschyout. But the real clincher for us is how its formula lasts through cocktails, dinner, dancing, and afterparty with no smudging.

Our secret weapon this party season for quick makeup touch ups is this pen that handily fits into a clutch and lends itself to different uses: an eyeshadow, liner, lip liner, and even a blush if need be. And just don’t take out word for it as its fans include Hailey Bieber and Jennifer Lopez.

For those who love to doom scroll in bed with moisturised digits, Origins has produced a cream that softens with meadowfoam seed oil and glycerin while leaving a non-sticky feel.

It might be near impossible to mimic the glow Dua Lipa has in her Houdini music video but one swipe of this shimmering highlighter might get you close. Its length of wear even goes up to 10 hours on oily skin and in fact, looks more radiant the greasier you get.
