The Covid-19 pandemic has left many of us feeling worried and uncertain. And if you’re feeling like you are due for a boost of positive energy to cheer you up, these beauty products might just do the trick. With drops ranging from household names like MAC Cosmetics and Maybelline to K-beauty label Romand, here are six beauty products with cute packaging that will cheer you up whenever you go to use it.
M.A.C’s collaborations never fail to disappoint. This time, they have teamed up with KAKAO to launch five lipsticks in limited edition packaging, including fan favourites such as Ruby Woo, Lady Danger and She Street. There will also be two limited colours: Lucky In Love and To Love. The cheery and fun yellow packaging also displays the adorable characters Ryan, Neo, Apeach, Muzi and Frodo. This collection is definitely one to collect or get as a gift.
Popular South Korean makeup label Romand has worked with fashion label Neonmoon on a series of powder purple cosmetics. Among them include this feminine eyeshadow quad. The pretty neutral shades contain both mattes and shimmers and can be worn daily.
The Le cinéma des Merveilleuses collection draws on classic film stars including Audrey Hepburn, Silviana Mangano, Arletty and Sophia Loren as inspiration. Packaged in an exquisite designed yellow compact, the beautiful mini blush is set to enliven your cheeks with a soft glow.
Jayde Cardinalli, an American illustrator who has worked with Gucci, has partnered with Fresh to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the well-loved Rose Face Mask. In addition, the artist has also created an Instagram filter which you can play around with and share it on your socials.
Although we aren’t able to transform ourselves into the superheroes seen in the Avengers franchise, perhaps swiping on the Maybelline x Marvel would give you some confidence and power. The pigmented formula lasts for 16 hours and won’t transfer onto your face mask. There are five different matte shades with designs of Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Spiderman, Iron Man and Black Panther.
Housed in an opulent gold packaging, the mascara is said to make lashes appear nine times fuller, and is smudge- and flake-proof while helping your eyes appear bigger and more awake.
