These colour-changing beauty products transform into something entirely different once applied on the skin, and while we know that looks are deceiving, there’s definitely nothing sinister about these – they’re truly magical.
LIPSTICK QUEEN FROG PRINCE BLUSH
Its green might look daunting, but don’t worry, Lipstick Queen’s blush will not appear green on the cheeks (phew). This gel-cream formula uses a pH-reacting, colour-changing technology that magically transforms into a natural, pink flush when applied. The result is a subtle and soft rosy sheen that’s easily buildable.

M.A.C TENDERTALK LIP BALM
We can never get enough of their lipsticks, more so after finding out that we can have our own personalised shade. Score! This smart lip conditioner not only hydrates our lips, but also changes its tint based on, well, pure chemistry wizardry really. In five shades of sheer pinks, it’s difficult to pick just one.
$38, available at selected M.A.C counters
SMASHBOX O-GLOW INTUITIVE CHEEK COLOUR
We don’t see blushes in tubes very often, not to mention one that’s a transparent gel, but when applied, it instantly reacts with your skin to give a rosy, healthy-looking glow. Alternatively, give it a go on your lips for a subtle stain – yet another way to achieve that elusive ideal of a glowing complexion.
$47, available at Sephora
GIVENCHY ROUGE INTERDIT VINYL IN NOIR REVELATEUR
We’re de nitely intrigued by this deeply mysterious tube of black. On the lips, the colour appears to be either mauve or plum, depending on the individual. What’s more, when applied as a topcoat on other shades, your lips will instantly look bolder and darker, perfect for enhancing your evening look.
$48, available at Givenchy counters and Sephora
SURRATT PRISMATIQUE LIPS IN CULTIVÉ
Among Surratt’s collection of sheer, glossy Prismatique lipsticks, Cultivé has got to be the most interesting of the lot. Though a light iridescent blue in the tube, it effortlessly turns into a cool, glistening shade of pink on the lips, while specially formulated with Japanese pigments that luxuriously grace your lips with an illuminating shine.
$60, available at Beautique, Takashimaya D.S. Level 3 The Gift Box
THE BODY SHOP ALL-IN-ONE BB CREAM
This one’s for those who just can’t seem to find a base in the right shade for your obscure complexion; the lightweight
BB cream adapts to your skin colour, giving you both much- needed hydration and a smooth finish. We personally think it’s great for sunny vacations where you’ll end up a few shades darker than before.
$32.90, available at The Body Shop
