Check out the fun stuff that happened earlier this week here.



It's no secret that the most festive time of the year is also the busiest one. So even though we'd prefer to have a solid 15 minutes putting on our eye makeup, we'll most likely have less time than that. No worries, though, as you can speed things up by updating your arsenal with the right products.

Read on as the Clozette Beauty Awards Panel share their top eye-conic products that will help you glam it up in a jiffy. 

The newcomer, Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette, took the entire beauty community by storm when it launched this year. Unsurprisingly, it's also a hit with our beauty panel. "The amber-hued shades are generally smooth, buttery and highly pigmented", Clozette Ambassador Roanna Tan said. "[These qualities] help me achieve a sexy eye makeup look that's trendy and chic."

Even our editor, Becks Ko, has nothing but praises for this product. "The colours! The pigments! The endless eye looks! What more can you ask for in a palette?" she exclaimed.

Becks and Roanna also share the same choice for their top eyeliner, which is the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner. "Hands down, the best eyeliner one can have because it's a deep, dark black, and it lasts the entire day," Roanna said. Becks added that even eyeliner rookies would love this because the shape of the tip makes the application a breeze. This is definitely a time-saving product!

Meanwhile, our creative director Kersie Koh favours another eyeliner, the Clio Kill Black Waterproof Brush Eyeliner. What she loves about it is the precise control over the brush tip and its long-wear capability. 

Another favourite of Kersie's is the Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette in Scandalust. "The sleek packaging and the beautiful pigmented colours are just too hard to resist," she said. 

Adding a brow highlighter to your holiday makeup look will surely give it that extra pop and dazzle. And for Clozette Ambassador Grace Myu, the Benefit High Brow Glow Brow Highlighter is a must because it does a great job of giving just the right pinch of highlight. "It accentuates my brow bones without being OTT," she said.
