Thanks to their skin-loving ingredients and great performance, Kjaer Weis’ bestselling cream blushes, mascaras, and lip liners have already become a firm favourite of beauty editors.
Started by Danish-born makeup artist Kirsten Kjaer Weis, the Kjaer Weis brand is a fusion of “Scandinavian minimalism and New York fierceness”. But what sets this brand apart from other beauty labels? And can we find Kjaer Weis products in Singapore?
Keep reading, because we’ll be answering those questions ahead.
What makes Kjaer Weis different?
In a nutshell, the company emphasises sustainable luxury, which are two traits that are rarely combined in the beauty industry. Kjaer Weis aims to elevate the concept of clean beauty by using high-performing formulas and cruelty-free, gluten-free, organic ingredients, all housed in gorgeous, earth-friendly packaging.
With their beautiful refillable lipsticks, mascaras, and compacts, you can join the #RefillRevolution and look good while minimising waste and caring for our planet.
Kirsten has worked for some of the most influential fashion magazines throughout the world, including Vogue, Elle, and Marie Claire, and noticed that people were putting their skin’s health at risk by applying synthetic makeup products.
On the other hand, a lot of natural products on the market did not function as well in terms of cosmetic elegance or variety, and the richness of the beauty experience was lost. Kirsten leveraged her expertise in beauty to venture into unexplored areas in the industry, pioneering organic, luxury beauty in her line.
According to Kjaer Weis CEO Gillian Gorman Round, “it’s a luxury to know something that you’re using is going to work, that you’re going to love it and that it is doing its best to leave things better than they found them.”
Having encountered plenty of products that simply didn’t live up to expectations, we fully agree that having tried-and-true staples in our daily life is a comfort. Better yet if they’re ecologically safe and kind to our planet!

Our top picks from Kjaer Weis
Kjaer Weis Im-possible Mascara
The Im-possible Mascara is undoubtedly a favourite amongst buyers, for its high impact, long-lasting, and volumising effects using ingredients that nourish and protect your lashes. The formula is easy to remove, so you won’t tug unnecessarily at your eyelids.
It contains certified organic and sustainably-sourced beeswax, carnauba wax, and acacia gum for the ultimate lift, volume, and hold. Other great ingredients include marula oil and raspberry fruit water, which help to condition lashes and keep them healthy.
Best of all, this mascara case is refillable. It’s made from 50% recycled plastic and infinitely recyclable aluminium, so you can simply buy refills instead of throwing away your mascara tubes every three months!
Of the recommended stores, Revolve offers the best price of S$35.18 for refills.
Kjaer Weis Lip Pencil
If you’re looking for a reliable lip liner that won’t feather and bleed, we’ve got you. Boasting a highly pigmented formula that glides on smoothly, the Kjaer Weis Lip Pencil comes in 10 essential shades, from browns and plums to classic reds and nudes.
The long-lasting formula contains organic coconut oil that moisturises lips and gives a velvet matte finish that doesn’t emphasise dryness.
Almost all of their shades, including the popular Mauve and Rose, are certified organic. The brighter Classic and Flush contain a minute amount of artificial pigments. You can pair them with matching lipsticks or wear them on their own for an ultra-opaque look.
Of the recommended stores, Beautylish offers the best price of ∼ S$35, with ten shades available. Popular shades such as Rose, Mauve, and Soft are currently out of stock. This is accurate at the time of writing.
Kjaer Weis Eye Shadow
Wouldn’t it be great if your eyeshadow protected the sensitive skin on your eyelids as well? This is a good option for people who have sensitive skin and are allergic to products from mainstream brands.
Kjaer Weis’ Eye Shadows contain honeysuckle extract, which has antibacterial effects, as well as gardenia florida extract, which fights free radicals and inhibits photoaging!
These are easy to blend with great staying power, as you’d expect from a brand created by a makeup artist. The eyeshadows, like the rest of their makeup collection, are refillable too. Choose between their iconic metal compact, which is built to last a lifetime, and their Red Edition, which is constructed from 100% compostable paper and can be refilled up to three times.
For a flattering shade that you can swipe all over the lids, try Transcend, a velvety, slightly metallic reddish-brown that’s easy to match and perfect for everyday looks.
Net-a-Porter has the best price of ∼ $22 for the compact, which is also available on Nordstrom. Nordstrom has the best price of S$7.27 for the Red Edition compact, which is also available on Net-a-Porter. These are accurate at the time of writing.
Kjaer Weis Powder Bronzer
Formulated without talc, the Kjaer Weis Powder Bronzer is ultra-soft and natural. It’s infused with vitamin E-rich sunflower seed oil that promotes firmer, younger-looking skin, and Chinese yam protects against environmental stressors.
For a natural, sun-kissed look, lightly dust over the cheeks and anywhere else the sun would hit until the desired intensity is achieved. The bronzer is available in two shades: Revel, a warm terracotta, and Bask, a soft tan with neutral undertones.
Of the recommended stores, Nordstrom offers the best price of S$11.63 for the Red Edition Bronzer Case.
Kjaer Weis Invisible Touch Liquid Foundation
The Invisible Touch Liquid Foundation is part makeup, part skincare. Its serum-like formula gives light to medium buildable coverage that evens out your complexion while being super gentle on the skin!
It includes soothing, skin-loving ingredients such as certified organic chamomile water, hyaluronic acid, and a Kjaer Weis-exclusive ingredient, Dioscorea Batatas, known as the Root of Light.

Kjaer Weis Cream Blush
Like all their products, the award-winning and bestselling Cream Blush is simple and fuss-free to use, giving you a natural, sun-kissed flush. You can apply with fingers to melt the product into the skin for a natural flush, or with a brush for more precise application.
It’s a lightweight yet long-lasting flush of colour that you can apply on your eyes, lips, and cheeks, with a certified organic formula with components like sweet almond and jojoba seed oils.
The Detox Market is the only site that offers the compact and refill together at S$75. These are accurate at the time of writing.
Kjaer Weis Beautiful Eye Balm
The Beautiful Eye Balm is a restorative, certified organic composition that rejuvenates and revitalises the eyes. It minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while giving eyes a luminous, youthful glow.
You’ll be happy to know that it is ophthalmologist-tested and packaged in a fully recyclable glass jar, with a vegetable-based plastic cap.
Kjaer Weis’ signature ingredient, Dioscorea Batatas (the Root of Light), brightens the eyes for a wide-awake look. The use of beeswax (a silicone alternative) moisturises the delicate eye area, while rosehip seed oil, sweet almond oil, and sunflower seed oil fortify the skin with essential fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants.
Impressively, in a 28-day clinical study testing The Beautiful Eye Balm on 21 women, 100% of people saw their undereye skin become softer and more hydrated, with 95% seeing a reduction in dark circles!
The versatile balm also works as an excellent primer for undereye concealers. It can be repurposed as a lip balm or used to moisturise cuticles and any other dry spots on the body.
