With new brands and countless products hitting the beauty counters each day, we know it gets confusing to separate the good from not-so-great ones and pick the right ones for yourself. Luckily, we did the hard work of trying and testing for you; here’s presenting a list of products which stood out and we loved—you should give them a go too!


Ultra Matte Lipsticks by Nykaa
Nykaa’s products are our guilty pleasure. No matter how many beauty products we have, there is always a room for a Nykaa lisptick! This range covers almost every shade on the shade card. It’s matte but with a nice texture which glides smoothly on lips. It’s pigmented and stays on for at least fours hours. It might need a touch-up after meals or if you’re letting your hair down at a party, but that’s a small price to pay given that it doesn’t dig a hole in our pocket.


Fashion Fanatic Palette by M.A.C
What’s a great party look without a pop of colour! We’re constantly inspired by the tons of gorgeous coloured eye make-up looks we see on each social media and in magazines and this amazing palette by M.A.C let’s you achieve those easily. A combination of bright, muted and shimmery tones, this one is a great option for creating versatile eye make-up looks for any occasion. The colours are highly pigmented and stayed on for over 10 hours without a touch-up, which gives it a big plus from us!


Stunna Lip Paint by Fenty Beauty
We knew that Fenty Beauty by pop singer Rihanna, will be as big a hit as her albums. Sadly, the brand is not available in India. We recently picked up a Stunna Lip Paint in shade Uncuffed from Sephora, Singapore and we can’t stop using it. The texture, pigment and stay of the colour is amazing and the price is pretty affordable as per the luxury segment bracket. We can’t wait for the brand to launch in India to try more products.


Team Hair’s HENA DESAI and SUKRITI SHAHI list down all the makeup and skincare products that have made it to their list of hot favourites this month.


Nourishing Body Oil by Ilana
Taking organic skincare to a new level comes in Ilana—a range of 100% natural skincare products which are completely free of toxins, parabens and sulphates. The brand claims that their products are natural enough to eat— while we haven’t tried doing that, we did try their Nourishing Body Oil, which is all set to be your winter saviour. With benefits of olive and orange, it nourishes and tones the skin. It has a non-sticky formula which is great to hydrate the skin this season.


Lady Million Lucky by Paco Rabanne
Of all the fragrances we have tried till now, Lady Million Lucky has been the most addictive one. The best part about the fragrance that it isn’t too overwhelming; it has a sweet scent which lingers all through the day. Another charming thing about it is its unique prism bottle design which makes it visually appealing as well. Aren’t we lucky to have tried it!


Moroccanoil Face Lotion SPF 30
The first thing we all expect from a face cream is that it should be non-greasy. This face lotion feels light on the skin and gets absorbed quickly. It’s hydrating and gives a soft sheen to the skin. An add-on benefit is that it comes with SPF 30 which means no extra layer of sunscreen! It just makes the morning skincare regime so much easier.


Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation by Make Up Forever
Creamy, lightweight and offering full-coverage benefits—what more do you need from a foundation! This game-changing foundation stick is by Make Up Forever is perfect to use anytime and anywhere, making it great for mess-free application when on the go. The creamy formula allows easy blending, leaving you with a natural, satin, flawless finish. We say it’s worth giving this one a go!
