M.A.C – Shadescents Collection and Caitlyn Jenner Collection
Caitlyn Jenner has partnered with M.A.C to launch a 15 piece full collection and it continues her mission to celebrate all ages, all sexes and all races. It champions inclusivity with aptly named products like “Tolerance”, “Kindness” and “Compassion”. The products, housed in sleek metallic gold and matte black packaging, come in sophisticated and timeless shades.
If you’re into coordinating your outfit with your makeup, you can now take it to the next level by matching your lipsticks to your perfumes. Introducing M.A.C Shadescents Collection: it features six corresponding fragrances to mirror the vibe and personality of their six iconic lipsticks. Go for the Crème d’Nude fragrance and lipstick if you like a casual and no frills look. Heroine – with its bright matte purple lippie and notes of saffron, incense smoke and cordovan leather in its fragrance partner – leaves a lingering and impactful impression.
Philosophy – Time in a bottle 100% in-Control Serum
It’s never too early to start on preventative-aging skincare. Like its name suggests, this serum offers you jurisdiction over the traces of time on your facial skin. With religious use, it hinders the imprint of time on your facial skin. Infused with a potent vitamin c and a patented antioxidant complex, it helps neutralize free radicals and protects skin from oxidative stress e.g. environmental toxins.
Prior to first use, ensure that you mix the entire vial of the fresh pour activator into the serum bottle to maximise the potency and efficacy of its age-resisting properties. Shake well for 20 seconds and an appearance of a light pink mixture is an indication that it is ready for use!
Ideal for: AM/PM, prior to applying moisturiser
SK-II – SK-II Limited Edition Multi-Coloured Phoenix Facial Treatment Essence
If you’re a stickler for packaging like me, then don’t miss out on a special launch of the brand’s star product. SK-II is rolling out an exclusive edition of the Facial Treatment Essence and is for sale only in Asia. The phoenix design borrows elements from Suminagashi, Japan’s ancient art of marbling, and signifies rebirth, and a transformation with vibrancy. The essence is saturated with Pitera™: the fermented ingredient contains amino acids, vitamins, organic acids and minerals. Add this to your cart to revitalise your skin for the new year!
Burberry – Liquid Lip Velvet
