Why SG influencers love this lipstick and other October beauty favs
Su:m37 Losec Summa Elixir Cream, $466
I like a cream that delivers all the goodness sans stickiness. With its patented Aura Enzyme and Ferm Theriaca, this new launch does just that. Using fermentation science, it minimises inflammation from external stressors, while promoting collagen production in the dermis layer to induce skin turnover, deeply purifying and regenerating skin from within.
Available at Su:m37 stores, Tangs Plaza and Isetan Tampines
Chanel Les Beiges Water-Fresh Blush, $84, in four shades
Feeling more like skincare than makeup, Les Beiges Water-Fresh Blush is a fresh take on blushers. Featuring microfluidic technology, an innovative process first used in Chanel’s Hydra Beauty skincare line, the blush has a light gel texture formulated with micro- droplets that melt into skin for subtly rosy cheeks and an immediate cooling sensation.
Christian Louboutin Rouge Louboutin Sooooo... Glow, $16 for a chain to $84 for a case
Have fun with makeup with these refillable and customisable lipstick cases and charms – there are 15 shades, three cases and six charms to choose from. Though intensely pigmented, the vegan- friendly range provides buildable coverage. Its first application leaves a comfortable balm that intensifies in colour with subsequent applications.
With caviar lipids and caviar-derived retinol, the exclusive-to-La Prairie Caviar Retinol harnesses the line-erasing potential of caviar. Imbued with Caviar Retinol, this oil is designed to work in conjunction with skin’s natural circadian rhythms to counteract age-induced effects, while its oily composition creates an instant temporary outer barrier to minimise water loss at night. I use it as the last step of my PM ritual, so this luxurious formula seals in moisture and active ingredients.
With an improved formula using new biodynamic botanicals such as lavender, rose gallica, calendula and marshmallow root, this best-selling essence is clinically proven to increase immediate hydration by 155 per cent. My skin is instantly soothed with a few pats of this light, quick-absorbing formula. Still, my favourite part has to be the calming lavender and calendula scent that has me smiling every time I reach this step of my routine.
Hermes Twilly Eau Ginger eau de parfum, $113 for 30ml
I love the taste and smell of ginger, but I was surprised to find it in a fragrance as a key ingredient. However, it works, especially in the hands of Hermes. Weaving candied ginger together with peony and cedar, this spirited scent exudes sunshine and joyful energy. It’s my go-to when I desire a burst of exuberance.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Magic Touch Concealer, $47, in 16 shades
I’ve always had the idea that different concealers are needed for different concerns – until I used this one. This tiny yet mighty multitasker conceals imperfections, brightens the under-eye area, highlights and contours. Its medium-to-full coverage, coupled with its blurring effect, allows more smooth blending without creasing.
