I have curated a list of cult classics from global labels that look flawless and sit tight without smudging. Keep scrolling to find out more about these offerings on the Cross-Border store!
This product is a triple threat — skincare, concealer and foundation all wrapped in one. Powered with Ceretin Complex and antioxidant-rich Energy Complex (derived from green tea, ginseng and vitamin B) the concoction helps protect your skin against external aggressors while also redefining your complexion. A must-add to your vanity for the ongoing festivities if you are chasing an iridescent, one-from-within glow.

The festivities have dewy, glowy beauty looks written all over it, and to help you achieve it, you can count on this revolutionary product- Gloss Cushion. This product has become my ride-or-die, and you will always find it on me. Just a dab or pat across the cheeks gives you a luminous radiance, elevating the look and feel of your beauty look exponentially. It grants your high coverage while also moisturising the dermis.

This hybrid product allows the natural colour of your lips to take centerstage with a water coat finish. Boasting mango, apple and vitamin E extract it is also adept in giving your lips dewy care against external aggregators.

A stain-smooth, pigmented formula that will help you channel your inner glam diva- the Natasha Moor lipstick is an editor favourite back at the Nykaa office. With inclusive and innovative shades that transition supremely well from day to night, you are bound to turn a few heads while on the dance floor. This superior, premium offering has been a staple in my wardrobe for a while as it doesn’t crease, feather or smudge no matter the assortment of snacks I devour.
Flaunting a statement eye is all you need to take your glam from nay to yay. This is why I recommend the one-of-a-kind offering from Bodyography. Just a twinge of glitter on the lids guarantees a pearlescent glow and gives your beautiful eyes a three-dimensional appeal. With an array of warm and cool tones, the formulations are saturated, combining the texture of a cream with the finish of a powder. Bag this infallible, long-lasting eyeshadow in light of the festivities and channel the creativity within you.
My biggest pet peeve when it comes to mascaras is how the liquid gets all clumpy and wears off at the slightest inconvenience. This is why I started scouting the market for an offering which would help circumvent the problem at hand. Thankfully, I stumbled upon this Maxlash Volumizer Mascara from DOUCCE and haven’t looked back. True to its name, the inexplicable product gives your lashes incredible depth, volume and dimension without weighing them down. Also, it helps keep the fear of smudging and the stress of reapplication at bay. One swipe is all it takes to get lashes for days.
