While you are at it, make sure to add favourites to your cart— every offering on this list is worth your hard-earned money.

1. Plump It! Hyaluronic Lip Plumper

Price : INR 3110
Key Ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid

If you fancy cushiony, fuller lips, might we suggest getting your hands on the Plump It! Hyaluronic Lip Plumper? Brought to you from Canada — this infallible formulation doubles the hyaluronic acid synthesis in the lips whilst also boosting matrix and dermal-epidermal junction molecules. The science-backed formula, which mimics a lip injection, makes the pucker visibly plump on first-time application and gradually increases its softness and volume, over time. Additionally, the plumper also grants your lips a high shine gloss— wear it raw on your lips and you’re good to go!

How To Use It: Cherry cola lips have been the talk of the beauty town— a trend that mimics the colour and fizzy texture of the iconic drink. Since the crux of cherry cola lips is creating an illusion of plumpness first, you can summon this HA based lip plumper for the job. Start by finding a lip liner (a shade darker than your natural colouring) and overlining your pout. Once the liner is on and even, use a lipstick in hues of berry, red, brown or a mix of all to recreate the colour. Top it off with the lip plumper for a high voltage shine! Alternatively, you may replace your regular gloss with this meticulous plumper for a gorgeous, voluminous pucker.

2. K-SECRET Collagen Vita Secret Multi Balm

Price : INR 3760
Key Ingredients: Vitamin C, Collagen

This sleek li’l stick wields the power to transform your beauty game a solid 360 degrees! Supercharged with pure vitamin C, the K-secret collagen vita secret multi balm dwindles the appearance of dark spots and administers an even, bright complexion. As the name suggests, the meticulous formulation also boasts hydrolyzed collagen that diffuses into the skin cells to ensure water retention and improved dermis elasticity. Whip out this handy stick and swipe topically to help your skin health reach its maximum potential.

How To Use It: Give your face an instant lift with the multitasking balm from South-Korea. Apply it on the forehead, between the eyes and along the laugh lines — where wrinkles and fine lines are bound to appear first. But first, ensure a thorough cleansing sesh with a face wash of your choice that grants you a clean canvas for the balm application. Apply the concentrate with a single stroke of the hand on the pain points (similar to how you would apply a lip balm).

3. Indeed Labs Nanoblur

Price : INR 2990

The Indeed Labs Nanoblur adeptly cloaks enlarged pores, crows feet and wrinkles to give the skin a silky smooth finish. This formidable concoction from the Land Of Maple Leaf — leverages light-diffusing and photo-diffusing technology to grant a high-definition ready skin. It is the perfect offering to wear when you’re strapped for time and want to avoid layering an assortment of brews. Lightweight and breathable, the product offers an impeccable mattifying finish which doesn’t budge come rain or shine.

How To Use It: You may summon this featherlight formula for veiling concerns like massive pores, fine lines and wrinkles — all with a pea sized amount. The product also grants sheen to medium coverage and is the perfect bet for sporting a clean girl or minimalist look.
For high coverage, marry the nanoblur cream with your choicest formulation and apply topically on concern areas.
If you fancy a dewy base, mix this mattifying formulation with a super-hydrating moisturiser and blend it gently into the skin.

4. Ere Perez Oat Milk Foundation - Chai

Price : INR 5020
Key Ingredients: Oat Milk

The French make-Ere Perez Oat Milk Foundation is now available in India, courtesy of Nykaa’s Cross-Border Store. The formulation, which has been whipped to perfection, sits beautifully on the dermis to grant it a dewy finish with a natural-sque radiance. Airlight and buildable, the foundation also lays emphasis on promoting skin health, thanks to a harmony of oat milk, peach and Vitamin E. Available in 12 diverse colours, the exquisitely creamy offering looks minimal and effervescent.

How To Use It: Use a face cleanser to purge the skin of all impurities, grime and excess oil. Make sure to pick a face wash tailored to your skin type and pertinent concerns. Once your face is squeaky clean, dab it dry with a soft towel. Follow this up with a thin, even layer of a hydrating primer. For the uninitiated, a potent primer will expertly blur blemishes, fine lines and create a smooth surface, allowing for a hassle free makeup application. Now bust out this rich, elegant solution and apply it in a dot formation on the face. Use a damp beauty sponge or a brush to blend the formulation till it is hardly conspicuous.
