For bright and matte skin: Fenty Skin Fat Water Pore Refining Toner Serum

Building upon Fenty Beauty’s promise of inclusivity and sustainability, Rihanna’s skincare debut packs a punch with just three gender-neutral hero products—Total Cleans’r Remove-It-All Cleanser, Fat Water Pore-Refining Toner Serum, and Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturiser Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen. A favourite of Badgal Riri herself, the toner serum is a hybrid product designed to combat discoloration and dark spots thanks to potent mix of ingredients like anti-ageing niacinamide, vitamin C-packed Barbados cherry, and oil-reducing witch hazel water. Alcohol-free and viscous to touch, the two-in-one product is meant to be applied with one’s hands.

For fuss-free falsies: ByCaxs Stuck On You Lash Adhesive Eyeliner

Multi-tasking beauty products are all the rage, but this eyeliner might just be the most innovative yet. Known for its range of comfortable coloured lenses and false lashes, Singapore-based beauty label ByCaxs has recently launched Stuck On You, a product that doubles as an eyeliner and lash adhesive. Available in both clear and black ink, the liner comes with a precise felt tip for easy application, making it perfect for creating that cat eye flick. Apply, let dry for a couple of seconds, then gently press on your falsies for all-day glamour. Aside from ease of use, the liner is also water and smudge-proof, as well as restickable, just in case you want to switch lashes midday.

For smooth skin with UV protection: Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Base Makeup SPF50+ 

If sun protection is your priority, you won’t go wrong with this new cushion compact by Japan’s top sunscreen brand Anessa. Available in clear, light, and natural shades, the compact features aqua booster technology, which strengthens UV protection upon contact with sweat and water. More of a makeup base than a foundation, the product offers light pore coverage for a smooth and even finish. Formulated to reduce sebum production and prevent skin dryness, it promises to leave skin looking flawless all day long—even through your toughest gym sessions.

For unparalleled length and definition: Hourglass Unlocked Instant Extensions Mascara

Yearning for fluttery lashes but don’t fancy wearing falsies? This best-selling new mascara from Hourglass recreates the look of eyelash extensions with its film-forming technology, which coats each lash in lightweight fibers. These help to give your lashes a fanned-out but not clumpy finish for that dolly yet glamourous look that’s also long-lasting thanks to the product’s smudge-proof feature. We like that it’s easily buildable—go for the natural look with just a single coat or more for extra volume and drama.
