Sisleya L'integral Anti Age Eye And Lip Contour Cream, $250.
This smart cream was formulated to counter skin’s behavioural dimension of ageing, which means that it prevents wrinkles, fine lines, dullness, sagging and dark circles from internal as well as external factors. And the bonus: It works to plump and firm the skin around the eyes and the lips too. We love the richness of the botanical formula, which is great to keep skin hydrated and supple during the night when sleeping in an air-conditioned room.
This limited edition blusher palette is almost too pretty to use. We swiped it though, and it gave our cheeks the prettiest dusty-rose flush. We love that the hue isn’t an orangey pink that can look a bit try-hard but is a natural warm pink that flatters most Asian skin tones.
Laneige X YCH makeup collection, from $36 for the Two Tone Matte Lip Bar to $48 for the Skin Veil Base Dot Cushion
This year, the Laneige’s annual fashion collaborative project joins forces with Korean designer brand YCH. What this means for us? Our favourite Two Tone Lip Bar, BB Cushions and Eyebrow Cushion Cara are decked out in a super chic polka dotted fabric, making them super flauntable.
This oil and water based serum promises to restore skin’s youth in as quickly as 7 days. It made our thirsty, tired-looking skin glowy and smoother to the touch in just three days. Thanks to our smoother, silky skin texture, makeup application was a breeze too.
Bespoke beauty is what it’s all about these days and apothecary based skincare brand Kiehl’s is going back to its roots doing just that. To get this customised skincare serum set, you need to go to the store for a details consultation. You will then be given a set with a bottle of a serum base and two little tubes of targeted concentrates that you mix into the bottle yourself. The targeted concentrates are prescribed based on your top two skin concerns and promise greater efficacy compared to off the shelf formulas.
The French House’s take on the two-tone lip is avant garde, much bolder than the K-beauty inspired sheer, shiny versions. This lippie – two intense ‘real lipstick‘ shades in one tube – is also surprisingly easy to use. Swipe on, press lips together and work an eye-catching pout with lots of attitude.
Diptyque Fragrance Gestures Body Collection, $40 for a soap to $120 for the body balm
The price tags may be exorbitant but the scents and textures are superior. They cocoon the skin, making body care a sensual experience in itself. You won’t want to get out of your bathroom if you have these products in there with you.
This alcohol-based hand-wash cleanses hands, kills bacteria and at the same time hydrates and refreshes them on the go. Rub it onto hands like you would a hand sanitizer. The only difference? It smells so amazing on your hands, with the brand’s signature Suede scent that is subtly musky and wonderfully powdery.
