The best makeup products to try this autumn

Shu Uemura Matte Supreme Lacquer Lipstick
  • Shopping
  • Central

This line of lip colours is nothing short of amazing. In a single swipe, the smudge-resistant formula brings you deep, intense colour with a long-lasting matte finish. With its high-performance Clearlast Polymer, you only need to apply a thin layer to get that saturated impact that’ll last throughout the day. Our go-to shade is the purple wine (WN03) for its versatility – it goes with anything from a black power suit to a shimmery gold number. Available in twelve shades. $220.

3CE Take A Layer Tinted Water Tint

  • Causeway Bay

Looking for something less dense for those casual weekend strolls around the city? Then go for this option that plumps up the lips with a dewy light finish. With 3CE’s tint, you can easily go from an effortless ‘no-makeup’ look to bold party-ready mode simply by adding extra layers by preference. Available in various shades. $129.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette

  • Tsim Sha Tsui

Before we even get to the delectable range of colours on offer here, let’s take a second to admire the beautiful packaging. This 12-in-1 set works for any skin tone and every occasion. Opt for a warm-toned day look with shade names such as ‘Sauced’, ‘Low Blow’ and ‘He Devil’. If you’re looking to turn up the heat for a special event, go for ‘Scorched’, a metallic deep red with gold micro-shimmer, or get on with the beautiful metallic burnt red ‘Dirty Talk’. The set works great while you’re on the go as it comes with a full-size mirror and a double-ended blending brush. If you wish to have your eye makeup stay on longer throughout the day, our tip is to apply a lightweight eye primer beforehand. $500.

Jill Stuart Modeling Lucent Eyes Palette
  • Health and beauty
  • Admiralty

If you’re looking for something a bit more sophisticated, try out Jill Stuart’s Classy Modern eye palette, which creates delicate gradation, like layers of organdie. Not only are the colours great for lustrous and translucent eye looks, but it also smells splendid with hints of floral fragrance thanks to Chinese peony and Damascus rose extracts. $350.
