Beauty sales as of late have given us some insight as to what characterises the supreme from the mediocre. Supreme: a line-up of discounted beauty trinkets that make our eyes do a little dance. Mediocre: disappointing Black Friday sales.
Shopee’s latest venture is tiers away from the latter. Shopee Brands Festival is running from 15 April to 5 May in Singapore — and it ticks all the best boxes. Discounts on your favourite international and local beauty brands? Check. 24-hour brand deals and giveaways? Check. Free shipping? Check, check, and check.
It’s not every day that a 20-day brands sale comes around, and on top of that, you can’t always justify which of the can’t-miss deals should earn a spot in your shopping cart. Things like price and investment potential all come into play. But it only took one look through Shopee Brands Festival for us to realise that no matter what we selected, the entire colour wheel was our fortress.
A tall order? Most positively. Impossible to achieve? Not with Shopee’s platform of leading brands (we see you, Etude House). Proving to be the preferred e-commerce partner of choice for leading brands, we rounded up 6 top skincare and makeup picks by beauty brands we’re itching to swipe our credit cards on!
Warning: slight hesitation can and will guarantee feelings of regret, so act fast or forever hold your peace.
Etude House is coming in strong with their line of irresistibly popping lip tints. With lipstick shades that range from a striking matte red shade to a rosy pink that pops, we’ll definitely bite.
