Step Into A Secret Disco At Chanel's Coco Flash Club | Clozette


Step into a hidden world of ‘80s psychedelic disco culture at Chanel’s new pop-up store in Singapore, the Coco Flash Club. In celebration of the unveiling of Chanel’s newest lipstick collection, the Rouge Coco Flash, Coco Flash Club is concealed within a vinyl record store aptly named Coco Records, whose theme and colours reflect the vibrant shades of the lipstick line.

Amid the pulsating lights and beats of the club are interactive setups dedicated to makeup plus a bar featuring the brand’s latest fragrance concoctions. New launches to look out for are the limited-edition Voyage de Chanel, two new fragrances from Les Eaux de Chanel, and the No.5 L’Eau Hand Cream.

The Voyage de Chanel is an exclusive travel face palette consisting of blushes, bronzer, and illuminating powders that pay tribute to four historic and ultra-stylish cities. Paris is a fresh pink blush while London is a deep coral. New York is a satin bronze balanced by Tokyo’s subtle rosy pearlescent highlight. Use them on their own or together for a sheer, all-over glowing effect.

As women who live hectic lives with multi-hyphenated roles, it’s only normal that we look for beauty products that will last for as long as we’d like to keep them on. So we make sure that we put on long-wearing everything. And while they’re great for looking fresh and presentable all day long, it can be a pain to get them off when we’re ready to hit the hay. That’s why it’s important to also have a trustworthy product that will remove your face colour in a jiffy.


A bottle of PureVivi Cleansing Lotion

There are lots available in the market, but we were piqued to try the Purevivi Cleansing Lotion because of its claims. #TeamClozette member Eunice gave it a whirl with stubborn eyeliner, lash glue and longlasting liquid lipstick to test its powers out. Here’s how it fares.

The eyeliner test

The Purevivi Cleansing Lotion comes in a 500ml bottle — a huge bottle if you ask us — especially after we realised that you don’t need a lot of the product due to its efficacy. Another thing that caught our attention is its lotion texture, which is definitely not the kind you put on your body. “It feels more like a toner and claims to remove makeup effectively in just 30 seconds,” says Eunice. To test its claim, she tested with waterproof eyeliner that promises to not budge even during the hottest of days. “I managed to clean off the majority of my makeup with just one clean wipe.”


Goodbye, glue?

Lash glue is notorious for being sticky on the lids, obviously. So removal can be quite a challenge as tugging and pulling have a tendency to not only harm the eyes but remove your own lashes in the process. That’s why something that’s powerful but gentle is a must. “The lotion is gentle to the delicate eye area and does not sting my eye,” Eunice says when she tested it out on a pair of fake lashes. “Plus, no tugging needed. And it left my skin feeling soft and smooth — no sticky feel or glue residue!”

Made with Japanese cultivated Aloe Arborescens (Kodachi Aloe) that have been meticulously cultivated in a warm climate, the cleansing lotion also hydrates the skin. It also contains natural ingredients such as grapefruits, lemon, jujube, apple, orange, lime, barley and Crataegus cuneata to nourish and soothe the skin.



So long, lipstick.

We all love a good lips product that lasts throughout the day. That’s why longlasting liquid lipsticks are staples in everyone’s kits. But we can also admit that they can be hard to remove without the right product. Some are not strong enough and needs to be rinsed off while others are too strong that they sting.

The Purevivi Cleansing lotion is also paraben-free, alcohol-free, fragrance-free, colouring-free and surfactant-free, making it gentle enough for even those with sensitive skin. Furthermore, from brushes to blenders and sponges, you can even use it to wash your arsenal of makeup tools! After a swipe of the cleansing lotion on her lipstick-coloured lips, Eunice says, “It was so easy to use because I didn’t have to rinse it off after. It’s also a plus that I had no negative reaction to the product during and after using it.”


A pack of PureVivi cleansing sheets for easy makeup removal

To sum, the Purevivi Cleansing Lotion offers great cleansing benefits and more. But if you feel like you’re still pressed for time, you can get the same effect minus the need to look for cotton pads with the Purevivi Cleansing Sheets.

There’s no better time to channel that bronzed goddess glow than during the summer. Vacation plans and trips to the beach are a surefire way to achieve that enviable tan. But what happens when your vacation ends up a staycation — when you’d rather avoid the heat in favour of cooler temperatures? Or maybe you’re one of those who tend to burn easily even after slathering layer upon layer of SPF. Whatever the case, we’ve devised a cheat to that healthy, sun-kissed look you can wear during the warm summer months and have people guessing where you took that holiday.


Step 1: Light it up.

Apply base makeup as preferred, though we suggest tinted moisturiser or a lightweight foundation for a fresh-faced look. You can opt to spot conceal with a heavier foundation/concealer for blemishes and dark spots. Use a liquid or cream highlighter to highlight your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and your cupid’s bow to illuminate your face.


Step 2: Give it some warmth.


bronzer demo


Powder lightly over areas of excess shine. Apply bronzer to the hollows of your cheeks to add definition. You may also blend it up to your temples and forehead if you’d like more warmth. Dust a bit of bronzer across the bridge of your nose where the sun naturally hits. Use a brown eyebrow pencil or eyeliner to draw some freckles on to your nose, dotting randomly for a natural look. Use a fine-tipped liner brush and some brown eyeshadow to draw darker spots. Pat lightly to finish.


Step 3: Prettify your peepers.

Using the same bronzer, sweep the product over your lids focusing on the crease with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. Brush your brows up and outwards with a spoolie and set them in place with a clear or natural-toned brow gel. Curl your lashes and swipe on a lengthening and defining mascara for fluttery-looking lashes. You may also opt to tightline your eyes with a black eyeliner for increased definition.



Step 4: Add a pop of colour.

Swipe on a peach-toned lipstick on to your lips. Pat it in to blur any edges/harsh lines and dab the excess product on to your cheeks for a flushed look.


Now you can step out looking like you've vacationed somewhere with lots of sun. We hope you enjoyed this little makeup tutorial and stay tuned for more looks.
