Beauty Picks

7 beauty must-haves from Japanese cosmetics brand Kanebo

Their Fall/Winter 2018 collection focuses on function over fads, with makeup and skincare that have classic appeal
 

Cosmetics companies basically work the same way as fashion: a new season means a new collection to thrill and excite, until the next big thing. Kanebo's Fall/Winter '18 is somewhat different: its makeup and skincare are here to stay.

Here are our seven picks from the collection:

1. Graceful Flow Lotion, $150

This is a mildly viscous toner which calms sensitised skin that is irritated and itchy. 

2. Intense Crayon Rouge, $46

Just one layer of this lipstick delivers a highly opaque, semi-matte colour. Yet, it never makes you feel you have lipstick on. In six red shades.

3. Luster Cream Foundation, $184

This gel-cream foundation is super lightweight and gives a powdery finish that doesn't look cakey. In eight shades.

4. Eyebrow Mascara, $43.50

The formula is water-resistant and smudge-proof, and doesn't clump on brows even when applied in a rush. In two shades.

5. Skin Gloss Oil Water, $82

This serum is a wonderful alternative when face oils seem too oily and serums, too lightweight. The two-phase oil-and-water product can be used on face, body and hair.

6. Tone Up Primer, $92

This yellowish-green skin-tone corrector plays down redness and brightens a sallow complexion. It spreads smoothly and sets quickly. 

7. Fulfilling Emulsion, $180

You only need one pump of this rich moisturiser for face, neck and decolletage. Despite its richness, it doesn't leave oily skin feeling sticky, and makes normal-to-dry skin feel well hydrated. Alcohol-free and for all skin types.
