During summer times, UV rays are way stronger that’s why you should definitely be well-equipped with a reliable sunscreen! This sunscreen provides SPF50 with PA++++ which is definitely good enough to protect you from harmful UV rays. It applies like a refreshing moisturiser yet it does not leave any sticky residue.

This lip tint was created during the Covid pandemic when everyone was wearing masks. The idea behind the fixing tint is to make it mask-proof so that your lip colour won’t be rubbed off by the mask. When applied it has the feeling of a liquid lipstick but after it dries down, your lip colour won’t easily budge. That is the reason why this lip tint was such a hit when it was released (I have one too and I love it!). It comes in 12 gorgeous shades so there is definitely a shade that will suit your skin tone!
You are probably wondering what’s a double eyelid liner but is actually a liquid liner that can create a clean aegyosal.

This eyeliner has a light pigmentation so that the line created on your aegyosal will look natural. Other than that, some also use this eyeliner to deepen their double eyelid and to line their bottom eye line. This comes in 3 different shades for you to choose from!
