Gone are the days when we could step out with glossed-up lips without a care in the world. Today, with protective masks (double at that!) taking over the bottom half of our faces, it seems almost redundant to wear any lip product (aside from lip balms) as our masks will smudge away whatever we have on underneath.

Still, wanting to adhere to the SOPs and keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe, wearing masks has given us a chance to go wild with our eyes and we’re more than okay with that! Be it dramatic wings to harmonised lids, it’s all about adding some flair to spice up our ‘new normal’ looks. So, if you’ve never ventured out into the world of bright and bold eyes or are looking for more ways to amp up your eye makeup game, check out some of our favourite new releases that’ll get the job done!

1. Bobbi Brown Luxe Metal Rose Eye Shadow Palette, RM260

If you’re all about natural tones with a rosy touch, this palette should be up your alley! Featuring creamy matte and metallic-gelée shimmer eyeshadows, the Luxe Metal Rose Eye Shadow Palette includes bold colours like rich mauve and red-brown, and glossy hues from a chromatic golden pink to metallic rose and bronze. Delivering incredible payoff, the shades are also buildable and blendable, allowing you to create subtle to dramatic looks – we’d go for the latter, of course, because why not?!

One of our favourite releases from Dior’s Fall 2021 Collection is the 5 Couleurs Couture Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette. Coming in two options: 659 Early Bird and 459 Night Bird, the colours, as well as the pans, are incredibly stunning with each palette creating a look of its own – a sultry rosy look with the former and shimmery moss green with the latter. Portraying feather motifs in autumnal shades, the fine powders are intense and long wearing with a shimmery finish. Bonus: you can get your initials engraved on the casing (up to nine characters) for an additional RM28!

For a closer look at how you can play around with the palettes, watch these videos as Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, creates two stunning looks with the Early Bird and Night Bird shades. Shop them here.

3. Lush Eyeliner, RM100

If eyeshadows aren’t your thing, you can substitute them with a vivid coloured eyeliner like Lush’s! Despite a more minimal look, the vegan liquid liners provide just as much drama as they come in vibrant and highly-pigmented hues such as Courage (emerald green), Grounded (bronze), Motivation (aquamarine) and Success (silver). Plus, they all contain a hint of shimmer and are made with vegan, natural and fair-trade ingredients like organic jojoba and aloe vera gel, and safe synthetics so that they go on seamlessly and stay gently on the skin.

Despite being a little on the pricier side, Natasha Denona’s eyeshadow palettes are worth splurging on – especially this Circo Loco palette! Developed with Natasha’s very own classic matte and metallic formulas, the palette boasts 15 shades that are simply out of this world – from pastels to striking hues inspired by the circus. Being easily blendable with maximum payoff, the super-pigmented hues let you create endless looks thanks to the impressive colour story that the palette features. Think about it: you can rock different colour combos every day of the week and still have more to discover!

Ever since the brow gel was first introduced in 2016 with the Eyebrow Stylus, it’s had huge demands to be launched on its own. Now, officially launched as a standalone product in an extra-large size, it’s become a must-have among many beauty enthusiasts – including us! Taking groomed, feathery brows to the next level, the Nudestix Brow Boost + Set Gel XL volumises and holds them in place all day. Using a non-flaking formula, the clear brow gel also strengthens and thickens the brow hairs with the help of panthenol and 5% peptide complex factors.

On days when you need to doll up in a hurry or just want to keep it simple with a splash of colour, Rare Beauty’s Stay Vulnerable Liquid Eyeshadow will come in handy. Transforming from smooth liquid to powder once it sets in, the eyeshadow which comes in five shades from berry to neutral has a satin finish with medium coverage and is easy to blend and layer – perfect for creating gradient looks, don’t you think? What we love about this product is that it’s not only vegan-friendly and cruelty-free, but its formula is also crease-free without drying out the skin!

7. Wycon Mirada Sensual Mascara, RM76

Mascaras have been our best friends pre- and mid-pandemic, especially while we WFH as they instantly brighten up our no-makeup faces. Now that we’re stepping out once again, mascaras remain our go-to for a good reason and Wycon’s Mirada Sensual Mascara is one of our new favourites for its lengthening, curling and volumising effect. Using a special technology that contains perfectly balanced melted wax, the lightweight and creamy formula coats each strand evenly to create a thicker appearance yet sits comfortably on the lashes.

Pro tip: To get the best results, apply the mascara to the inner corner of your lashes too. An easy way to do this is by looking downwards and using the tip of the applicator.
