Charlotte Tilbury Is Finally In Singapore | Clozette


Last 12 November, celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury's eponymous makeup brand officially launched in Singapore. We had first dibs in trying her amazing line of products during the extravagant launch party — a night of glitz and glam at Straits Clan. Interested to know what happened? Read on.

We explored dazzling rooms filled with Charlotte Tilbury’s best-selling products like the Hot Lips lipstick range that promises to give you that perfect Hollywood pout and Charlotte’s raved-about Magic Cream, the secret to flawlessly smooth skin. We also witnessed the unveiling of her Christmas sets. You can see these items, and more of her iconic products, in action through our unboxing.

Lastly, we were treated to a makeover from Charlotte’s entourage in the Backstage Beauty Boudoir. Daniel, the senior lead artist at Charlotte Tilbury, used the limited edition Luxury Palette of Pops in Celestial Eyes (SGD90/~USD66.18) to create a dazzling makeup look on #TeamClozette's Sabrina as well as other guests.


A live video call with Charlotte Tilbury


Charlotte herself was unable to attend the event in person but we got to hear from her over a live video conference later on in the night. After getting our makeup professionally done, we started taking IG-worthy photos in both professional and darker lighting to test out the sparkle of their eyeshadows.

After getting a peek at the current selections, we're looking forward to what the "Makeup Artist to the Stars" has in store for Singapore beauty enthusiasts in the following months.

Visit the Bao Bao Cloud Concept Store



The launch of the BAO BAO CLOUD Concept Store in ION Orchard last 13 November also saw the launch of the Prism Pochette. This was BAO BAO Issey Miyake’s first pop-up in Singapore and outside of Japan. The Prism Pochette (SGD360/~USD264.56), which comes in seven colourways, challenges the wearer to be creative in how to style and carry it. Aside from the seven colours, there are also 12 bar colours for you to choose from. Mix and match the design combinations (which range up to almost 80 ways) and how to carry the Pochette — as a clutch, a fanny pack, a sling bag, and more.

Lit up the city at the Coach x Raffles City Holiday Party



We got an exclusive preview of the Coach holiday collection last 15 November, which includes several ready-to-wear pieces and Tabby handbags that will be exclusive to Raffles City. After a surprise performance from nutcracker-dressed drummers, we were ushered to witness the lighting of the Coach Christmas Tree. This would be the only Coach-branded Christmas tree in the world this year, standing at 16 metres tall and inspired by the Coach mascot, Rexy. Beneath the Christmas tree is an interactive room featuring flashing Christmas elements from the floor and reflected onto the mirrored walls. This interactive display operates from 10am to 10pm, from 16 Nov to 26 Dec.
