Pantone colour of the year

It has been named. Greenery was this year's colour of the year, although, to be honest, it felt like it was Millennial Pink. Now, we're moving on to a new year, and we're getting a new colour. Get ready for this royal hue of Ultra Violet.

BTS x Mediheal

Mediheal is teaming up with K-Pop superstars BTS for four exclusive products. The offerings will be revealed at Mediheal's booth at BTS's concert in Seoul on 8 to 10 December.

Kim K called out

Kim Kardashian's not new to controversy. But this time it involves her brand Kids Supply. Kardashian is accused of ripping off the designs of many fashion designers for her apparel. 

New Fenty Beauty?

Is Fenty Beauty releasing a new lip product? Rihanna has teased what seems to be a lipstick tube on her personal Instagram account.

After enjoying great success as a skincare-focused beauty guru, YouTuber Liah Yoo is now ready to take it to the next level. Early this year, she already announced that her very own skincare line is in the works. And we'll finally get a glimpse of the brand's products this coming 12 December. 

Chanel Spring-Summer 2018 Makeup Collection

LES 9 OMBRES PALETTE ÉDITION No1 Affresco, SGD139; Rouge Coco Gloss, SGD48; Le Vernis, SGD39

Chanel's latest Spring-Summer makeup collection draws inspiration from the vibrant city of Naples, Italy. At a glance, we can see that warm and rich earthy colours like emerald green, ocean blue and clay brown dominate the collection. Starting 28 December, the collection will be available at CHANEL Fragrance and Beauty boutiques so go ahead and check it out for yourself.

Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayons


Lip crayons are nothing new, but when Marc Beauty releases one, we'll surely be all ears (or lips). The Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon promises to give us the best of both worlds. It combines the lightweight, comfortable feel of a liquid lipstick formula and the effortless and precise application of a lip crayon. Sounds interesting? Mark your calendars as this baby will be available at Sephora by 28 December. 

Escentials Serge Lutens Dente De Lait

SGD280 (100ml)

The newest fragrance to debut under Serge Lutens is Dent de Lait, which translates to "Milk Teeth". The pleasant smell is reminiscent of innocence and the loss of it, through its almond milk and coconut notes sprinkled with a tinge of a metallic whiff. Bottles are up for grabs now at Escentials.

Part of the joy of having a significant other is having a constant person to share things with — stories, experiences, beauty products, and so many more. Sometimes, when you spend so much time with a person, you even develop the same habits. And those habits are not limited to what you usually do.

We know that you prioritise taking care of yourself, and you want nothing but the best for your partner, too. Here are some fun grooming habits you can add to things you do together and share.

Lend each other a helping hand

When it comes to grooming, a majority of the tasks can be done by one person. There are some, however, that require a helping hand. Say, you’re having skin issues on your back, your significant other can definitely lend a helping hand in that area. If you’re one to have back acne, your partner can help you in applying topical solutions, and vice versa.

Cleanse together

For women, it’s already a given that washing our faces every day (or even twice a day) is important. For guys, however, it may not be that case. If your guy is not someone who’s particular about his skin, it’s good to have him started on a journey his skin will thank him for. After a long day of work or before starting your daily routines, allot a time together to just cleanse your face and go about a routine.

For her, the Senka Perfect Double Wash is something you’ll enjoy using. It has a rich and dense foam that goes extra in terms of cleansing the face. It’s strong enough to remove make-up and cleanse the face thoroughly but gentle enough to leave it moisturised. It also contains Silk Essence and Double Hyaluronic Acid, leaving your skin smooth and supple.

For him, consider the Senka Perfect White Clay. This 3-in-1 detox cleanser, made of natural mineral clay, helps dissolve blackheads, eliminate dead cells and remove oil and dirt from the skin. Men tend to have oily skin, so they’re more prone to these kinds of impurities.

Go for monthly trims together

Let’s admit it, we often don’t think about having a trim. We use masks and conditioners but we don’t exactly schedule a visit to our stylist for a quick snip to refresh our tresses. If your significant other is the same, it’s time to both get your crowns updated. Schedule a trim together. You can even slide in a treatment if you’re both up for it.

Indulge in hand and foot care together

We often get our nails done. Sometimes, it even depends on our mood. But we can’t say the same for our partners. We’re sure they’re clean and hygienic, of course, but a trip to the nail salon at least once a month wouldn’t hurt anybody. So the next time you book a trip to your favourite nail technician, bring him along, too.
