It used to be that double-masking meant using two different kinds of skincare masks on your face at the same time. This allows you to treat different skin concerns simultaneously and is a delightful sensorial, self-care experience. Today, double-masking has a more critical meaning, which refers to using two face masks – one surgical and one cloth – to reduce exposure to COVID-19. Although not mandatory, this is a practice that’s currently recommended by our Health Ministry (MOH)
So, let’s face it, with double-masking now a thing, wearing lipstick is the last thing you’d be thinking of right now, wouldn’t it? Well, we beg to differ. You can still wear a bright red lip colour even when you’re not going outdoors; there are work meetings, virtual parties, networking mixers, and more to attend. Alternatively, consider wearing it for yourself when you want to look and feel good at home. Don’t let being stuck inside part you from your love of the powerful red lip colour. And hey, being in lockdown isn’t going to last forever! Here, we’ve compiled some of the hottest lipstick launches for when you want to go full glam.
Rouge Dior Forever Liquid
If you’ve been searching for a mask-proof lipstick, this is it. Extremely long-lasting, ultra-pigmented, and transfer-proof, the colour remains fresh and striking even when you’ve been taking your mask on and off all day. Its petal-shaped applicator ensures intense coverage in a single stroke. Meanwhile, its liquid texture consists of pigment-filled oils and bonding agents that fuse the colour seamlessly on the lips.
