Insider Roundup: Sophie Turner Spills "Game Of Thrones" Hair Secret & More | Clozette

Extra, extra! From old beauty trends making a comeback to Sophie Turner spilling icky Game Of Thrones hair secrets, we're spilling the tea on this week's hottest news so buckle up and get ready. 

Barrettes are officially back

Everything seems to have a hint of nostalgia these days and your hair accessories are no different. Giving us major flashbacks from back in the day when you can't finish a hairstyle without putting a barrette on, these clips are back in the fashion game and even major names like Gucci are jumping on the trend. The question is: are you psyched about this, too?

Polly Pocket makeup

Barrettes are not the only throwback trend we have this week because Hot Topic has collaborated with Mattel's Polly Pocket in honour of the latter's 30th anniversary and it's serving us the toy's signature pastel hues. We're digging it. The line includes both a lip and an eyeshadow palette that honestly looks pretty much like kids makeup. Even so, we can't help but be excited and hope it performs well enough for our adult standards.

Sophie Turner reveals a secret about her Game Of Thrones hair

The actress, who played the red-haired Stark daughter on the hit HBO series revealed that around Season 5 of the show, she wasn't allowed to wash her hair during the entire span of the filming. While she didn't elaborate on the details, it's safe to assume that being a natural blonde whose hair has to be dyed for the show, it might have to do with keeping the hair colour's longevity. Sophie did mention that she used wigs in the latter part of the series so the no-washing rule was officially off the table. 

Beauty meets sports with Maybelline and Puma's latest collaboration

Bold, sporty and perfect for edgy street looks, Puma x Maybelline is a collaboration that we didn't know we needed. The collection includes four matte + metallic eye duo sticks, one gloss face duo stick, a new shade for the brand's bestselling Master Chrome highlighter and a smudge-proof mascara that promises high-performance and lasting power to keep your makeup game strong. All we can hope for now is for it to be available in the Asia-Pacific region and we're all set!

Even though glossy lips are all the rage right now, there's one reason why many ladies are still hesitant to sport this trend. It's because wearing lip gloss means dealing with that icky, sticky feeling. Not to mention that you would need to reapply often to maintain the colour. But the good news is, these woes will soon be a thing of the past. Introducing our new obsession: lip oils. They've got the longevity of a stain, the nourishing properties of a balm, and the pretty shine of a gloss but none of its stickiness. Sounds like a good deal? Here are five of the best lip oils that should be on your radar.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil


Made with a unique fusion of plant-based oils, this lip oil will give your puckers a serious dose of hydration. One swipe of this product is all you need to coat your lips with a non-greasy, sheer shine. If you love a little flavour in your gloss, you'd be delighted to know that this one leaves a subtle sweet taste.

Hourglass Nº 28 Lip Treatment Oil

Hourglass Nº 28 Lip Treatment Oil

Want a lip oil that feels super luxurious? The Hourglass lip treatment is the one for you. From its 24-karat gold lip applicator to its indulgent blend of 14 botanical essential oils and anti-ageing active ingredients including Saliporine-8, Volulip™ and Viamerine, this lip oil is opulence in a bottle.

Sisley Phyto-Lip Delight

Sisley Phyto-Lip Delight


An oldie but still a goodie, Sisley's Phyto-Lip Delight is one of the first to introduce us to the concept of lip gloss and lip care in one. It starts with a gel-balm texture, but upon contact with the lips, it transforms into oil and unleashes its nourishing properties while giving you a light sheer tint. 

Lancôme Juicy Shaker Pigment Infused Bi-Phased Lip Oil

Lancôme Juicy Shaker Pigment Infused Bi-Phased Lip Oil

USD22 (

Unlike the other lip oils that only provide a hint of colour, this Lancôme Juicy Shaker pigmented lip oil will give you that soft, glossy ombre look that's so popular right now. It contains a cocktail of five nourishing oils: peach kernel oil, sweet almond oil, apricot oil, cranberry oil and muscat rose oil. To use this, all you have to do is shake the bottle to mix the formula and dab (not swipe) the product lightly on your lips. 



Nothing beats a red lipstick when it comes to being a classic. From casual playfulness to effortless elegance, it captures the same essence and versatility of a little black dress. But if we're being honest, finding the 'one' can be a bit intimidating because there are so many variations and finishes of red out in the market. Thankfully, Shu Uemura himself stepped up to create the perfect Asian red in the form of RD163

Tested on approximately 3,000 Asian women to ensure the compatibility and universality of the shade and the formula, the brand dubs RD163 as the perfect red lip that will match Asian features and skin tones flawlessly. Coming in a line-up of three textures, take your pick among the satin-type Rouge Unlimited, the velvety Rouge Unlimited Matte or the smooth and glossy Rouge Unlimited Lacquer Shine.  But that's not all. We also got a hold of the Re:set Tint Remover & Lip Conditioner that will take care of long-lasting lippies — even tough tints — effortlessly while leaving your lips soft and supple, ready for your next colour adventure.
