Etude House’s Mini Two Match is a range of mini lip products – Lip Color (21 shades), Lip Balm (two shades), Color Mix (a lip colourchanger with five shades) and Concealer – that click together via magnets to form personalised two-in-ones. This is how the Transformer-like concept works:
The Refa Clear brush has traditional Japanese brush manufacturer Kumanofude’s superfine bristles for a sponge-like look and feel.
Refa Clear: 3-D Cleansing
Most cleansing brushes either vibrate or rotate to deep-clean. This Japanese brand, which is practically synonymous with face rollers, has a different take: its rotating brush alternates between circular and back-and-forth movements (think cupping) to “draw out impurities”. The slim, battery-powered device is also said to emit negative ions to enhance the cleansing process. It’s $360 from www.mtg-sg.com and Sephora. – SW
It starts with a $3.90 Magnetic Holder – a plastic, um, holder, with a magnet on each end for you to stick attachments to.
Add any two items from the Mini range ($9.90 each) to the holder.
2 Lip Colors
Two fave shades in one handy package.
Lip Color + Color Mix
The latter turns the former shade into another.
Lip Color + Lip
Balm Makeup and moisture.
Lip Color + Concealer
The latter neutralises your lip tone so the lip colour you apply after looks truer.
Who is good at layering? Popstar Cosmetics’ Screen Concealer ($25) and Cle de Peau Beaute’s Concealer SPF25 ($105).
Where you wear it (under or over foundation, and for touch-ups) is not the issue . What matters: the concealer’s texture. It should be light, regardless of how much you pile on. This means it layers so well that you never get light patches on your face. – SW
