"If you can’t beat them, join them", that is what we always say when it comes to beauty shopping.
And it’s still not too late to give in to the coolest trends that helped shape the beauty scene this year by adding these products, inspired from those very trends, into your makeup arsenal.
From Fenty Beauty to Marie Dalgar and Too Faced, here is what you should add into your beauty cupboard this 2019.
Scroll down to check out 8 beauty products you shall try in this year:
Fenty Beauty Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Duo
With more beauty brands riding the heavy metal bandwagon, it was only a matter of time before Rihanna takes her bestselling Killawatt highlighter and gives it a hyper-metallic makeover.
The hybrid highlighter duo still yields the same creamy texture of the original except this time, in a super reflective, foil-like finish. While its rule-defying shades may look intimidating at first glance, it blends easily on all skin tones.
Marie Dalgar Holo Eyeshadow Palette
Live out of your holographic fantasy when you adorn your lids in Marie Dalgar’s dreamy iridescent eyeshadow palette.
Taking inspiration from the trendy holographic element, the Chinese brand delivers 10 otherwordly hues that combine the prismatic multi-dimensional effect with delicate pearls and gemstones to give your eyes alien-like gradient. We also love how its silky, light texture settles comfortably on the skin, thanks to its moisturising qualities.
Laneige Two Tone Correcting Bar
Why wear one colour when you can wear two? Having started off as a trend that brings together two complimentary shades to subtly contour the lips and give the illusion of a fuller pout, Laneige applies its ever-popular two-tone concept into its latest correcting bar.
The dual-coloured correcting stick that combats skin-tone related issues such as redness and dark circles allows for natural-looking contouring in just a single touch.
Becca Volcano Goddess Glow Gloss In Metamorphic Gold
If the recent beauty trend is anything to go by, it is that gold makeup will always have a place on the runways. Luxurious, classic and versatile, not only can the timeless shade be worn on the peepers, it goes perfectly on the lips too.
In comes Becca’s stunning glow gloss in all its liquefied gemstone glory. With light-reflecting pigments and subtle plumping ingredients plus a hint of nourishing balm, our 24-karat pout has never looked quite this brilliant.
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
There will never be a shortage of demand for healthy, sunkissed glow, and this medium matte bronzer from Too Faced is the perfect antidote for that sunstarved skin. Infused with 100% real cocoa powder, its buildable formula can be applied subtly or in larger doses depending on the level of glow you desire to create an all-over warmth that gives up to 8 hours of lasting, gorgeous wear.
And the chocolate scent? Absolutely divine!
Urban Decay Born To Run Eyeshadow Palette
Looking for the ideal travel-friendly makeup companion to bring on your next big adventure? Urban Decay has got you covered with its all-in-one palette that offers 21 of-the-moment shades ranging from modern neutrals to colourful shadows in velvety textures with incredible blendability.
Whether it’s a conference in Asia or partying till the wee hours in Europe, the versatile shades will help you channel your inner wanderlust child, regardless of destination or occasion.
Smashbox Petal Metal Shimmer Drops
There is no escaping the rose gold hue that has seemingly rose to prominence recently so why not give in to its allure, and dip in Smashbox’s liquid shimmer potion of the same colour?
Co-created with makeup artist Vlada Haggerty, who calls it “a drop of heaven”, wear it on the lips or eyes as a weightless sparkle topper or swipe some on the face as a luminous highlighter for the ultimate rose gold glow.
Tarte Lights Camera Lashes™ 4-In-1 Mascara Flamingo Holiday Edition
While we do not encourage judging a book by its cover, we can’t deny that knockout packaging plays a huge part in winning us over. Tarte, for one, is known for slaying the packaging realm, and its festive update of its 4-in-1 mascara is no different.
The vegan mascara is a cult classic that lengthens, curls, volumises and conditions the lashes with every stroke—all dressed up in limited-edition flamingo packaging.
