Limited Edition Miss Dior Rouge Blush
Dior has created a limited-edition Rouge Blush with a "millefiori" floral motif, echoing the new Miss Dior eau de parfum. This collector's blush is beautifully embossed with flower blossoms in a bouquet.
The Rouge Blush is an ultra-pigmented Dior blush that enhances cheeks and cheekbones with a couture shade that features buildable intensity, for a finish that ranges from soft to bold. 361 Millefiori, a limited-edition powder pink shade with a satiny finish, can be applied using the angled applicator that comes with the blush.
Dior Prestige Le Micro-Sérum de Rose Yeux Advanced
As one of the most powerful Dior skincare products ever created for the eyes, Le Micro-Sérum de Rose Yeux Advanced is an eye contour serum under the Dior Prestige range that comes with a lifting effect that restores the eyes’ youthful expressiveness.
Crafted from the triple power of Rose de Granville, the eye serum’s formula is composed of 97 per cent natural-origin ingredients. For the first time ever, this new formula concentrates the revitalizing strength of the 22 micro-nutrients from the flower, the illuminating power of the rosehips, and is now combined with the restorative power of the rose sap.
Its new, ergonomic jewel-like applicator, the Micro-Shaper, perfectly follows the eye contour to smooth, illuminate and redefine the eye area.
Chanel Le Lift Fluid and Le Lift Lip and Contour Care
Chanel created its iconic Le Lift Fluid "so that women no longer need to choose between protecting youthful skin and cultivating perfect skin texture". The skin booster boasts a light, sensorial feel, as it works to target signs of age while providing a matte finish.
This light emulsion also balances comfort and freshness and also provides up to eight hours of hydration.
The new Le Lift Lip and Contour Care formula smooths, plumps and firms lips with its silky non-greasy texture. It also combines a botanical alfalfa concentrate with a plant-based biopolymer that has an instant lifting effect for the lips. Use these for at least two months and you will notice lips are plumped, smoothed, and more comfortable
Chantecaille Bio Lifting Serum+ and Stress Repair Concentrate+ Eye Cream
Chantecaille's Bio Lifting Serum+ and Stress Repair Concentrate+ Eye Cream are perfect for anyone who is looking for an easy way to firm up the skin and restore radiance while they sleep.
Chantecaille Bio Lifting Serum+ is infused with Chantecaille's Algae Tensing Blend and creates an invisible flexible film on top of the skin barrier to help smoothen lines and tone the complexion. It also contains Hexapeptides to reduce fine lines and Plantago stem cell extracts that help to reveal denser looking skin and reduce the appearance of age spots.
The best-selling Chantecaille Stress RepairConcentrate+ Eye Cream is powered by botanicals that minimise lines and wrinkles around the eye area too. It contains over 80 per cent natural ingredients and brightens the under-eye area with Wild Indigo Extract. Its blend of Hawthom and Arabian Jasmine also improves stubborn dark circles and gives the upper eyelid a 'lifted' effect.
Available at Tangs at Tangs Plaza and Takashimaya.
Dolce&Gabbana The Healthy Glow Cushion Foundation SPF50 PA+++
This new weightless formula helps to create a flawless healthy glow so easily. It is buildable and offers light-to-medium coverage for a naturally luminous finish while allowing the skin to breathe.
It also helps protect the skin from environmental aggressors and UV rays with its anti-pollution cotton extract and SPF50 PA+++ sun protection ingredients.
Available in six shades, cushion refills are also available and can be slotted easily into its compact case.
Available at the Dolce&Gabbana Beauty flagship store at Ion Orchard.
Nars Air Matte Lip Color
Every time we come across a new lip product that we think is perfect to be worn under face masks, we feel obliged to share it with readers. And this time around, it is the all-new Nars Air Matte Lip Color.
They are both cushiony and weightless, while pigmented enough to provide a soft-focus finish and creamy feel. You can build and blend it to perfection using the custom applicator or even using your fingers. Available in 12 of Nars' iconic lip shades.
Hera Rose Infusion Collection
For its fall/winter collection, Hera has launched a limited-edition Rose Infusion Collection that features three trending autumnal shades. Coupled with the luxury Korean beauty brand's Sensual Powder Matte smudging texture, the lipsticks offer a velvety finish along with romantic hues.
The soft matte liquid lip provides a natural colour on the lips that is comfortable for all-day wear, making it feel almost like a light and gentle hug for the lips.
Drunk Elephant C-Firma Fresh Day Serum
This new vitamin C serum by cult beauty brand Drunk Elephant is packed with a powerful antioxidant complex that helps to reveal brighter, firmer, and more even-looking complexion.
C-Firma helps to enzymatically dissolve surface dead skin cells as it hydrates and soothes the skin. The result? A decrease in signs of aging and photodamage as well as more luminous, radiant skin. Tip: When worn under your sunscreen during the day, C-Firma protects the skin from pollution and UV-generated free radical damage. It is also formulated at a pH of 2.5 so unlike some Vitamin C products, no refrigeration is required for this serum.
Foreo Luna 3 Plus
The new Luna 3 Plus can help you up the ante when it comes to cleansing as it not only purifies the skin but firms and tightens it too.
Combining heat and microcurrent, the gadget is the only beauty-tech tool in the world with thermo-facial cleansing, firming massage and targeted microcurrent technologies all in one smart device.
This much-raved about device gently warms the skin to prep it for better absorption of products, so that essentially means you won't have to waste any of your expensive skincare. Pair it with your cleanser of choice and use it regularly for a luxurious and effective deep cleanse and exfoliation that will help you achieve softer skin.
Kenzoki Youth Flow Serum, Hydration Flow Moisturizing Skin Guardian and Nourishing Flow Sensual Body Cream
Renowned beauty brand Kenzoki has introduced three new skincare ranges: Youth Flow, Hydration Flow and Nourishing Flow. Each range is formulated using the brand's Sacred Lotus Flower extracts to naturally boost the speed of regeneration of the epidermis and strengthen the skin.
Youth Flow is an anti-ageing range that protects the skin from oxidative stress and stimulates epidermal renewal; the Hydration Flow range keeps the skin deeply moisturised by improving the circulation of water in the different layers of the epidermis, and the Nourishing Flow range includes a body balm that is the star product for us. It feels absolutely luxurious and we love how it can be used not just all over the body but it works perfectly as a hand and nail cream, which is especially helpful since hand sanitisers are a necessity these days.
Available at Sephora.
Two Lips Outgrown
Tired of ingrown hair? Local beauty brand Two Lips' new product may just become a mainstay in your bathroom. Outgrown is a lightweight cream designed to be used not just on your body but is also safe for the face too. It contains a blend of plant-based acids and extracts, with antioxidants that can help prevent ingrown hair as well as its symptoms, such as redness and bumps.
Suitable even for sensitive skin, it gently exfoliates dead skin cells to keep hair follicles clear while defending against the risk of ingrown hairs. Its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties instantly soothe, heal and protect the skin at the same time.
Apply twice daily on affected areas after cleansing for best results. For stubborn ingrown hairs, use an exfoliating scrub in the shower, followed by Outgrown after. Follow this with a suitable moisturiser of your choice. Outgrown can also be used as a preventive measure and not just when ingrown hair appear. Apply it as a post-hair removal treatment or on ingrown hair-prone areas once a day after showering.
Available at all Strip outlets.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Primrose Palette and exclusive Satin Lipstick
Anastasia Beverly Hills' brand-new Primrose Palette and Satin Lipsticks are here to help you get ready for a social night out now that dining-in is allowed in groups of five once again.
The luxurious rose-inspired Primrose Palette features 10 all-new shadows and pigments and two new blush tones that come with highly pigmented textures. They are easy to blend with buildable coverage and feel extremely comfortable for longwear.
The brand's exclusive Satin Lipsticks are available in five red-hued shades that are velvety smooth and more importantly, they complement a wide range of skin tones.
Available at Sephora.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix
Love overnight face masks? This is a must-try. British skincare brand Elemis' Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix can be regarded as one solution for those of us who yearn for soft, supple skin but aren't always up for a night routine that involves multiple steps. This cream targets and reduces signs of stress on the skin, including deep-set wrinkles.
Its key ingredients include Padina Pavonica, a brown algae found on the Mediterranean coast, which is known to support the feeling of hydration; Drone Peptide Technology, which acts as a targeted delivery system that delivers a much-needed boost of hydration and anti-ageing actives; and Microalgae Dunaniella Salina—a highly purified extract that naturally grows in salt lakes with a salinity nine times higher than regular sea water.
To apply, massage a pea-sized amount onto the face, neck and décolleté in upwards strokes.
Sigi Skin Garden Party Clay Mask and Bright Skies Gentle Gel Exfoliator
Did you know that some of the most common skincare woes that we face can be solved with better cleansing methods? And by that, we're talking a really deep cleanse that can help you achieve healthy, clear and balanced skin.
Sigi Skin’s powerful deep-cleansing duo, the Garden Party Clay Mask and Bright Skies Gentle Gel Exfoliator are two products that can help you kickstart a good skin-cleansing regimen.
The former is a clay mask that helps to detox and clears the pores without stripping the skin of moisture while soothing and calming skin while the latter is a gentle exfoliant that contains a nourishing blend of natural skincare actives that can help reduce hyperpigmentation and even out skin tones.
Use both products regularly to revitalise the complexion and smoothen the skin's surface.
