Given the sheer amount of Korean beauty products launching every month, it’s hard to keep up with what’s new in K-Beauty. To help you navigate the complex world of Korean Beauty, every week I break down the hottest beauty launches coming from Korea.
Unlike with my monthly posts on K-Beauty bestsellers, you won’t find any link to purchase these products as they just became available in Korea.
But without further ado, here are the latest Korean make-up offerings of the week! Don’t forget to check out this week’s skincare launches as well.
Romand x Korea Cultural Heritage Foundation – Hanbok Edition Collection
In an exclusive collaboration with the Korea Cultural Heritage Foundation, Romand launched “Hanbok Edition”, a limited edition collection that embodies the beauty of traditional Korea. From the design of the packaging, to the shades of the product, everything in this collection is inspired by the subtle colours of traditional Korean clothing and by the concept of living in harmony with nature found in classic Korean culture.
