You might not have heard of all of these brands or products but one thing’s for sure – they’re highly raved about by netizens, local Koreans and the online Asian Beauty community on Reddit. Thanks to K-dramas and K-pop, the K-wave is still going on strong internationally. K-beauty is very dominating beauty trends now with girls everywhere emulating the clear, glowing skin of Korean celebrities.

Besides the big Korean brands that are widely available in Malaysia, there are many other hidden gems on Qoo10 that are selling for great prices.  We’ve done some research and compiled a list of the best kept secrets for you:

1. Club Clio Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow Pen


Korean girls swear by this product during the summer time when pool parties and beach outings happen every other week. This product will tint your brow a nice natural colour and the tint stays even with sweat and sebum. Some reviews even boast of it lasting in the pool! It comes in a sharp felt tip pen that will help you to create defined brows in no time!

Price online: RM49.30

2. Berrisom Lip Tattoo

This lip tattoo will change your lipstick game forever. Using the same sort of tint technology, the colour will stain your lips and last for the entire day through food, drinks and you talking. Just apply the gooey stuff from the tube directly to your lips, wait till it dries and peel it off. Voila! A vivid colour that you won’t have to touch up throughout the day.

3. Hera Age Reverse BB Cushion Compact

With Jun Ji Hyun as the face of Hera, it’s no wonder their brand’s cushion compacts are flying off the shelves. They are a really established brand on the high-end side in Korea and can be hard to find overseas. Hera cushions boast light-reflecting  technology together with skin benefits that you’ll be surprised come with makeup.
