There’s always something new and exciting for beauty lovers in Singapore. The previous one we reported on was probably the new Shilla duplex store in Changi Airport. But for those of us who aren’t travelling any time soon, we have the scoop on the three new brands you can look out for the next time you visit Watsons. Be warned: It’s very exciting!
1 . Australis
This drugstore brand from Australia has won the attention of many beauty vloggers and took the beauty community by storm. Rejoice, because it’s now available in Singapore! Out of the range that has been brought in, a cult favourite is the AC On Tour Contour Kit, which is said to be a cheaper alternative to Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Contour Kit. Retailing at SGD24.90 (DEFINITELY cheaper than spending USD40 on a contour kit for the Anastasia one), it’s a perfect contour kit to start off with if you’re a novice who’s new to the whole highlighting and contouring routine.
You can also find their Velourlips Matte Lip Creams that retails for SGD12.90. There are 15 shades to choose from! Again, it’s one of the cheapest liquid lipsticks you can find in the market.
2 . Beauty UK
Beauty UK is UK brand (duh!) that may be relatively new (only 10 years old) but already has a cult following. Besides their own version of a contour kit, they’re also known for their matte lip creams. The Ultimate Contour Palette retails for SGD16.90, while the Lips Matter Lip Creams retail at SGD11.90 each – both at very attractive prices.
Other products from Beauty UK include a felt tip liner (SGD10.90), Brow Kit (SGD14.90) and the Lash2TheMax Mascara (SGD9.90)
3 . Faith In Face
A fan of sheet masks but not a fan of it slipping and sliding all over your face when you go about doing other things? Then these new range of masks by Faith In Face should spark your interest. Not only do they have cute packaging and a cooling sensation upon application, it’s of a hydrogel material that sticks to your face snugly. The masks are formulated with naturally-derived oils and are safe for all skin types. There are five types of masks in this line for different purposes:
Nourish Me: Has a special formulation of Ceramide 3 with broccoli extract and olive oil provides the ultimate nourishment for your skin, giving you the ultimate dose of beauty.
Miss Invisble Pore: Has the 3-step solution to tighten your pores. It contains salicylic acid to reduce sebum hidden in pores, peppermint extract to cleanse and purify pores, and natural astringents such as chestnut shell extract and witch hazel extract to help tighten pores.

Hold Me Tight: Lifts and firms to maintain and improve skin elasticity in the long run. It contains copper tripeptide to liven and firm the skin without irritation, rooibos extract and red ginseng extract known to reduce stress and firm skin.
