These makeup products are quirky, colourful and have reached cult-status amongst makeup enthusiasts. Sadly, however, they are not yet available in India. So, if your bestie or sister (or anyone close to you, really!) is travelling abroad, ask them to grab these for you. They’re worth travelling across the seven seas for!
1. Kylie Lip Kit
This lip kit has created waves in the international makeup circuit. It claims to help you achieve Kylie Jenner’s signature plumped-up pout, and has records of getting sold out within minutes of hitting the website. It is not yet available in India, although you can find some vendors selling it for hugely inflated prices. We think it’s a good idea to ask your friends or relatives travelling to the US to get it for you!
You’ll fall in love with the quirky vintage packaging of this 3-in-1 bronzer, highlighter and eyeshadow! It’s a silky smooth pressed powder that provides a subtle radiance to the skin, making you look like you’re glowing, but not shining. It’s also available in two other shades, but this one is perfect for most Indian skin tones. So, do ask your bestie travelling to the US to include this baby in your gift bag!
Staying true to its name, this LA-based cosmetics company has a range of products that have captured the imagination of girls across the globe with all their colourful glory. Sadly, however, these too are not available in India, so if you know someone travelling to the US, definitely ask them to get you some of Colour Pop’s products! We recommend the creme gel liners to up your eye game - they’re available in a burst of intense colours like sea green, deep blue, honey, purple and orange, amongst others.
We have been crushing on Burberry’s beauty products ever since they were launched a few years ago. The Cashmere Foundation is a lightweight liquid foundation that is infused with Burberry's signature English Blend of rosehip, tea, and lavender! It’s also available in 14 different shades to suit every skin tone. If you have somebody travelling abroad, this is what you should be asking them to get for you!
We cannot believe how cute and totally affordable this makeup set from Too Faced is and we can’t wait to get our hands on it! It contains a primer, a mascara, a lipstick, an eye primer and a bronzer! So if you know anybody who’s travelling out of India, see if they can get this back for you.
E.l.f. is one cosmetic brand that we’re really hoping to see in India soon, simply because of how reasonable and good it is! This lip exfoliator has received rave reviews and it comes in such handy packaging. We’re l.o.v.i.n.g. it!
SO Beautiful! This cheek color is so gorgeous we think we might not have the heart to use it once we get our hands on it! But if you know someone who is travelling abroad, do ask them to grab this Anna Sui product for you! Because did we mention it looks absolutely stunning?
Although you can buy Topshop clothes in India now, their beauty products are not as readily available. And as good matte nail paints are quite hard to come by, we are lusting after these from Topshop! So if your sister/ bestie/ relatives are travelling to UK, see if they can get their hands on them for you!
This iconic eyeshadow palette is sort of a must-have for your beauty bag, especially if you love playing your eyes up. It has 12 gorgeous eyeshadows in matte, satin, sparkle and shimmer - so there’s something for every occasion!
