Vanity Corner: Beautiful dream • Color me red • Lip balm for men

Beautiful dream

Inspired by product inventor Mark Constantine’s quest for a good night’s sleep, Lush launches the newest addition to its Sleepy range—an indulgent face mask that pampers and nourishes skin while resting.

Lush Beauty Sleep face and body mask
The Beauty Sleep face and body mask were personally tested by co-founders Constantine and Helen Ambrosen for over a year.

“Have a bath, and use this face mask to sleep like a dream when you go to bed,” shared Constantine.

It is made with sleep-inducing lemon verbena and valerian root (extracted in honey sourced from the Barro Vermelho community in Brazil), hydrating mullein, linseed decoction, gently polishing ground organic adzuki beans, and a dollop of Lush’s most exquisite facial moisturizer, Gorgeous.

To use, apply on a cleansed face and leave on for 10 minutes to give the ingredients time to soften and moisturize, and the essential oils to relax the senses before the skin has a gentle exfoliation from the adzuki beans.

Color me red

Local makeup brand Spotlight Cosmetics highlights the classic red lipstick with its range of red in various shades and formulas.

For liquid matte finish, it has the red-brownish Liquid Lips in Fiery Star and the bright red Liquid Lips in Stunning Icon. Spotlight also offers bullet matte lipsticks which come in an intense berry shade called Sultry Siren and pinkish-red Scream Queen. 

Those who prefer a softer and more dewy finish may opt for the brand’s Creamy Lipstick in World-Class Diva. The Lip Crayon, meanwhile, is made for precise application and comes in various shades of red like Blazing Star and Edgy Princess. 

All Spotlight lip products are currently P99 off on Watsons online and at all Watsons stores and SM Department Stores until Jan. 31.
