Insider Roundup: Too Faced Teases Better Than Sex Eyeliner & More | Clozette


So many great news, so little time! Can you imagine that just over the weekend we got a hold of a whole lot of buzz-worthy stories? From a multi-chrome eyeshadow that's taking Instagram by storm to Too Faced teasing a Better Than Sex Eyeliner, we spill the deets right here in today's Insider Roundup. 


A new Better Than Sex cult favourite? 



Love everything makeup-related? Then chances are you've heard of or maybe even tried for yourself the famed Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. And if you love this cult favourite as much as the next gal, then this upcoming product from the brand's CEO Jerrod Blandino will surely get you excited: the Better Than Sex line is expanding with the Easy-Glide Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. Promising intense pigment in one stroke, plus performance that is also attention-worthy just like its mascara counterpart, we'll surely look out for this once it hits the shelves. Will you?


This chrome eyeshadow is causing waves on IG



If metallics, shimmers and glitters are up your alley when it comes to eyeshadows, then we bet that chromes are too. But just like the first three, finding a chrome shadow that stellarly performs can be a bit tricky — at least until the ones from JD Glow came along. This independent brand has wowed everyone with their highly pigmented multi-chrome shadows, with swatches causing a lot of hype on Instagram. Just see the video for yourself to know why these shadows sell like pancakes.

Experience a culmination of colours and flavours at Design Orchard's new pop-up café that is a collaboration between Ying the Label and Jewels Rock Sugar. Showcasing local eats and drinks spanning from kombucha mocktails to delectable chiffon cakes, give your tastebuds and your eyes a treat by catching this food and fashion love affair from 1 to 17 March 2019.

We’re sure you’ve already made lists of things you want to do and achieve this year. But may we suggest you include your vanity in your plans of things-to-upgrade? We’re sure you already have tried-and-true techniques and products. But a little leveling up never hurt anybody. If you don’t know where to start, here are subtle upgrades you can make.



Base

A good foundation is the beginning of every great makeup look, and to suffer through ones that flake off, cake up and transfer onto your clothes — never again. We’ve found one that sparks joy in the Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation, which comes in 34 shades and promises to keep your face fresh and flawless throughout the day.


Brows

Bold, precisely arched brows are the cornerstone of contemporary makeup, which helps define the face and create a starting point for the rest of your look. Ditch the basic brow and embrace your inner Instagram baddie with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade to create the perfect brow look, with enough wiggle room to be as natural or as over the top as you like.


Lashes


revitalash advanced



SGD156/~USD115.30


Women through the ages have coveted thick, lush lashes to frame eyes of every shape and colour, leading to the popularity of mascara, and now eyelash extensions. How about taking your lashes to new heights with RevitaLash Advanced for a dramatic new look? This lash conditioner contains a potent blend of peptides and botanicals to protect your lashes and amp up shine with just one swipe.



Blush


shiseido whipped powder blush


SGD48/~USD35.46


With the weather steadily getting more humid, try your hand at a cream or gel-based blush for a natural flushed look that won’t need repeat touch-ups while you’re out and about. Opt for the Shiseido Whipped Powder Blush for all-day comfort and the choice to stay natural or amp up the drama with extra layers of colour, with eight beautiful shades to choose from.



Highlight

In the spirit of KonMari, we’re beginning to consider ease of storage as part of the criteria when it comes to beauty purchases. And since Pat McGrath makes highlighter sticks, we’re 100% here for it. The Skin Fetish Highlighter & Balm Duo caught our eye because it allows you to create a dewy, effortless everyday look with the balm, and gives your cheekbones a show-stopping shine with just a flip of the stick.



Lips

If you thought you’ve seen it all with lip products, you’ve got another thing coming. Rising to the top of our faves list this year is the lip oil.
