Are you on the hunt for kawaii beauty items to treat yourself or give to a loved one? Here’s a gift guide for you, where I’ve rounded up the cutest makeup and skincare I could find.
This nice and toasty Hello Kitty and Friends bakery eyeshadow & highlighter palette from Hot Topic (US) is perfect for any retro-loving Sanrio and makeup enthusiast.
C-beauty brand Cute Rumor is known for their whimsical, Alice in Wonderland and bunny-inspired makeup. I’ve been eyeing a lot of items from them, including this tea party pocket watch blush. You can get this blush in five shades from LookHealthyStore or Chic Decent (both CN).
The #LIPSTORIES lipsticks from Sephora (US) are available in a wide variety of finishes and shades, from classic colors to more unusual hues. Each lipstick also comes with a unique and different background on the case.
I’ve always loved the color variants offered by Essie, and while their “cute as a button” nail polish comes in a bright coral shade, it still fits in right and bright with the season. You can grab this shade from the official Essie (US) website or Boots (UK).
Elizavecca’s Milky Piggy carbonated bubble clay mask is a fun way to treat your skin, and is something I would definitely repurchase. You can grab this mask from Amazon (US).
Lastly, give some extra TLC to your tired eyes with Tonymoly’s moisture boost cooling algae serum. The little whale makes it even more adorable! You can also get this from Amazon (US).
Andy (AKA Arlandyia) lives in Manila with her fiancé and works as a content writer, illustrator, and English teacher to fund her love for kawaii and food for their cat, Xiao. In her free time, she plays video games, goes café-hopping, and takes a few short naps.
