How long has it been since we've embraced the nude lip look? Now, we love the MLBB look as much as the next person, but with the season changing and the trends taking a new turn, we can't help but jump into getting a little bolder when it comes to our pout. 

So if you're feeling a little more adventurous as Spring and Summer approaches, here are some lippie shades you should definitely give a go. 


Grunge in brown

To ease you in with trying on a bold lip, going for deep browns as inspired by 90's grunge should be your starting point. It still gives off that nude lippie vibe but definitely noticeable with its stand out tinge of colour.

Give spring a major shoutout with this bright shade. Just a close sister to your pinks and reds, if you're in the mood for something less vampy and more fun, this is your next go-to.

Black a little too hardcore for you? Take the shade a notch higher and give grey a try. Go for those with purple undertones if you want a deeper and more rockstar-ish vibe or head towards the true greys with white hints if you're feeling a little more experimental.

Embrace your inner mermaid and let go of inhibitions by swiping on a metallic lip. Stray a bit far from the safe haven of reds by going to the other side of the colour wheel and opting for this vibrant shade of blue, giving your pout that playful and sultry finish with an extra heap of fun.

Why look somewhere else when you can stick to the classic? If you want to play bold but don't want to worry whether a shade will look great on you or not, black is your way to go! Make a statement while looking chic and mysterious by grabbing your own black lippie now. A bonus: it matches everyone's skin tone perfectly.   


Looking for an entire MOTD upgrade but still want to keep it laid-back? Maybe these throwback trends that are making waves again are your cup of tea.



Our lifestyle and location contribute a lot to our skin's health. Stressors and pollution can already affect our skin's condition badly, but imagine what the harshest of weather conditions can do.

We do our best to take care of our skin, but are our efforts enough to withstand the tests of extreme conditions such as harsh UV rays, dry heat and more? That's exactly what the series “Face the Wild” and “Face the Camera” will reveal.

Four celebrities — award-winning Japanese actress Kasumi Arimura, global fashion icon Chiara Ferragni, celebrated Chinese actress Nini, and South Korean actress Lee Siyoung — took on the challenge of a lifetime. They were taken to destinations where the environments are extreme to test whether their skin, pampered by the world famous SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, can withstand the extreme elements.

Follow the celebrities as they explore the different locations with National Geographic Explorer Hannah Reyes on “Face the Wild,” and find out whether their skin was strong enough to withstand harsh weather conditions as they do beauty shoots with fashion photographers Jesper McIlroy and Kirk Cheung on “Face the Camera.”


Catch up on all the action on SK-II's YouTube page.


With summer just around the corner, a call for a beauty stash upgrade is very much needed. And as always, we've got you covered with this month's new releases. Here are beauty releases we can't wait to get our hands on.
