China’s Best Makeup Brands That Are Worth the Hype

Do you want the clear skin of your favorite Chinese celebrities? There’s no better way than investing in products made for Chinese beauty! Here is a list of popular brand that emphasizes porcelain skin and delicate purity.

Most popular makeup brands from China are worth the hype

1. Florasis Hua Xi Zi

makeup brand

Without a review of Florasis, we can’t talk about Chinese cosmetics brands. Look at their makeup packaging! Florasis, also known as Hua Xi Zi in Chinese, strongly emphasizes traditional Chinese culture and style. 

You can see this in the intricate packaging and ingredient lists. Florasis beauty products cater to Asian markets. They are made with natural flower extracts and herb essences suitable for Asian skin.

These are our recommendations for this brand of makeup in China: 

We could review every Florasis makeup product, but the Florasis Floral Conscious Lock Lipstick is what stands out from this top Chinese brand. It can be purchased at the Florasis Online Store.

Traditional Chinese love locks inspire these lipsticks. Each lipstick comes in a lock-shaped protective sleeve. But we love what’s inside! 

The lipstick bullet features a scene from Zhang Chang’s ancient Chinese love story. We aren’t sure if these lipsticks would ever be used.

The Florasis eyeshadow palette with peony and moon relief is another luxurious beauty product we recommend in this Florasis makeup review. 

It can be found in the Florasis official store. As with the lipstick, intricate engravings are made into the shadows.  This instantly adds elegance to the palette. The palette is worth the investment, even if you don’t like bold shadow colors such as midnight green, gold, and bright red.

makeup brand

Colourkey was founded in Guangzhou in China. It is one of the most respected cosmetics brands in beauty. Colorkey caters to young adults and has a vibrant makeup look, thanks to its collaborations with our favorite childhood cartoons.

These are our recommendations for this brand of makeup in China:

Every Pokemon lover should have the Colorkey Pokemon Lip Gloss Set. It is available at the Colorkey Official Shop.

Let’s make way for the new kid on the block! FLORTTE was founded sometime in late 2018-early 2019. Their adorable packaging is what attracted our attention to this China-based makeup brand. 

FLORTTE’s eyeshadow palettes come with cute keychains and eyeliners in brightly doodled colors. 

This Chinese makeup brand is not only a great choice for packaging design but also because of its exceptional quality. Below, discover what you should add to your makeup collection!

These are our recommendations for this brand of makeup in China:

FLORTTE has a knack for reproducing stationery using their makeup products. Think Salade De Fruits Liquid Eyeliner. Their Ultra Fine Eyebrow Pencil, available on Mia Beauty, has a vibe similar to a multi-colored scrapbooking pen. 

These eyebrow pencils may look like pens, but you will see a big difference in how you apply your makeup. As you master those hair-like strokes, the formula glides on easily. 

This eyebrow pencil can also promote hair growth. This formula is rich in ginger, which stimulates hair follicles. It also encourages the growth of brow hairs. Each strand is strengthened by the vitamins found in ginger to stop them from falling out.

FLORTTE offers more than just eye products. FLORTTE’s I Love you Jelly Lip Oil (available at The Colourist Malaysia) nourishes your lips and gives you perfect pouts. 

This lip oil is formulated with avocado extract and jojoba seed oils. It hydrates your lips and protects them. The lightweight formula doesn’t cause greasiness or tackiness. 

The texture of this lip oil is almost water-like and doesn’t stick to your lips. The silicone applicator is what we love the most. It keeps things clean and hygienic. This brush is easy to clean and will not introduce any impurities to the formula.

8. Carslan

makeup brand

Carslan is one of China’s most luxurious makeup brands. Carslan partnered with top designers who have previously worked with high-end brands such as Dior and Hermes to improve their packaging design in 2021. 

This is something we’re keen to spend our money on. The best Chinese cosmetics brand also puts a lot of effort into research and development. Carslan spent many years developing a lipstick formula in its lab. It’s no wonder that almost every Carslan product sells well!

These are our recommendations for this brand of makeup in China:

The Carslan Oil Control Liquid Foundation is an excellent choice for oily skin types. This featherlight matte foundation is infused with pure black truffle and powerful antioxidants. 

It stays on flawlessly for up to 24 hours without oxidizing. There’s even a moisturizing option for girls with dry skin!

The Deer Sculpture Highlighter powder was created by Carslan and Dunhuang Museum (available at Carslan Official Store). The highlighter is embossed with the image of a deer enjoying the horizon. 

The Buddhist wall art and sculptures inspire what Dunhuang, China, is famous for. The shimmery champagne-gold highlighter is suitable for those with warm skin tones, while the peach pink highlighter will suit more people with cooler skin tones.
