Dior Backstage Pros Fix it 2-in-1 Prime and Conceal is designed to be used on eyes, pimples and lips — making it perfect for touch-ups. It contains a primer centre that smoothes the surface, and the surrounding product evens the skin tone. The darkest shade (003) is too light for ebony-complected South Asians.

Benefit Air Patrol

Benefit Air Patrol brings the BB cream to the eyes. It's an eyelid primer that protects the skin while the soft apricot colour brightens the darkness, regardless of skin tone. Its soft applicator tip prevents the tugging of the delicate skin. Classification: Universal

Dior Addict Fluid Shadow (limited edition) is an innovative two-in-one product. It is a liquid that can be applied like a liner or you can layer it as eye shadow. It comes in five rich shades that flatter dark peepers. Classification: Universal

Estée Lauder New Dimension Shape + Sculpt Face Kit simplifies contouring. Its chocolate and peach creams are light-textured to build the intensity, thus preventing over-exaggeration. When you apply foundation on top, your new cheekbones/ thinner nose, etc. look natural. Classification: Universal

Stila Perfectly Poreless Putty comes in five shades which can be used alone to even the complexion or used atop foundation to create a flawless, long lasting dreamy complexion. It is whisper-light, glides on quickly and leaves a matte finish. Classification: Universal



Givenchy Gelée Interdit

Givenchy Gelée Interdit beautifully exemplifies the jelly gloss, as its collection is hydrating, shiny and imparts a hint of colour. For darker-pigmented lips though, the hint of colour disappears leaving only a shine. Classification: Not Universal.


Foreo ISSA

The Foreo ISSA toothbrush is made of silicone bristles that pulsate gently and do not irritate the gums. The silicone is nonporous so it "resists bacteria build-up". ISSA only needs to be recharged after 365 uses and the head is replaced annually. Classification: Universal



Bliss Hide & Glow Seek

Bliss Hide & Glow Seek comes in two shades, and is designed to make the skin glow, even-toned and firm. The shade for medium-to-deep is quite light, thus it would leave darker skin tones glowing but not even-toned. The firming effect is a quick solution when you need to look taut for a slinky dress. Classification: Not Universal
