If there’s been a pattern trending in Singapore this year, we daresay it’s polka dots. Join in the dot-mania with the pretty yet functional creations from this fresh makeup collection by top K-beauty brand Laneige, created in collaboration with Korean fashion brand YCH.
But these aren’t your usual polka dot patterns: The dots are printed on herringbone fabric, an unlikely pairing that comes straight from the YCH F/W ’17 runways. Who would have thought that the union of these two classic motifs would result in a decidedly modern look that is equal parts quirky and cool? You’ll find this design (covered in a clear plastic film to stay dust-free) on two of the products in the Laneige Meets Fashion collection: Skin Veil Base Dot Cushion and Eyebrow Cushion-cara.
Also in the collection is the Two Tone Matte Lip Bar, which features polka dots emblazoned on a deep burgundy case – it makes a cute addition to your makeup kit.
Since 2014, Laneige has partnered with Korean fashion labels to introduce too-cute-to-resist packaging for its products, and to showcase the vibrancy of the country’s fashion talents. Case in point: The feminine-punk style of YCH designer Yoon Choon Ho, which already has an impressive celebrity following.
It’s true that in the world of K-beauty, packaging is everything. However, the Laneige Meets Fashion collection is more than just about slapping on a new look, as the Skin Veil Base Dot Cushion shows. The white dots on the cushion compact aren’t just a design element – they’re packed with ingredients from Laneige’s Water Bank Essence to moisturise and brighten skin. The formula has also been upgraded, and gives you the coverage you need with less product.
And this version of the refillable, sweat- and water-resistant Eyebrow Cushion-cara features the same much-loved liquid-to-powder formulation as before. It’s definitely the one you’ll want to get, so you can whip it out and touch up in style.
For those who love a good, highly pigmented matte lip, try the brand-new Two Tone Matte Lip Bar. Boasting fine micro-pigments that help the vivid colours last longer, the gel formula also keeps dry flaky lips at bay with a velvety lip primer made with ingredients that fill and coat any lines on the lips, leaving them looking smooth and feeling comfortable.
The best part: Each of these limited edition beauty products is guaranteed to perk up your makeup pouch – as well as your Instagram feed.
