Shout out to our fellow Malaysian beauty communities who do not get enough props for their contribution that have changed the dynamics in our local beauty scene. A large percentage of us are mostly unaware of these local beauty brands with amazing products due to the lack of exposure from our local media.
Check out these 4 Malaysian beauty brands which are just as good as imported beauty brands!
1. Orkid cosmetics (Vegan + Halal + Cruelty-free + Paraben-free)
Orkid Cosmetics is a local brand which mainly produces high quality matte suede lipstick that is still a favorite among many, especially since the trend doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. Their products can be used by Muslim women and vegans as well. They only have 6 shades of matte lipsticks so far but due to it’s affordability, they were sold like hot cakes. This brand was also featured in big magazines like Women’s Health, ELLE, CLEO and Marie Claire.

4. By Lena (Cruelty free + Paraben free + Organic)

She is passionate about the things she used on her children’s skin and henceforth, she made an extensive body care products like balms soaps and organic skincare. If you’re a firm believer of the benefits of mother’s milk, then By Lena is the brand for you because she also makes custom breast milk soap bars for customers. But first, she needs about 13.50oz of fresh frozen breast milk to make the soap bars, any donors?
