Insider Roundup: Urban Decay X Game Of Thrones Is Coming & More | Clozette


Got busy during the weekend? We're bringing you up to speed with fashion and beauty's latest so sit tight and buckle up. From Clarins introducing their own ice cream bar to Urban Decay launching a Game of Thrones collection, read 'em all here in today's Insider Roundup. 


Urban Decay x Game of Thrones



Rejoice, Throners! The final season of the hit HBO series may be hitting our TV screens for the last time on April but with this new collab with Urban Decay, you can be your own Khaleesi or Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. Besides the photo of a model wearing a dramatic teal and cobalt blue eye makeup with the words 'For The Throne' on it, no other details have been given about the inclusions in the collection. 


Beauty and ice cream? Clarins says yes to both


Clarins Ice Cream Bar


Who doesn't love ice cream? Apparently, even the skincare experts from Clarins can't say no to its appeal because they're mixing beauty and sweet treats together in their new Ice Cream Bar in collaboration with gelato boutique Birds of Paradise. From 8 to 17 March at ION Orchard B4 in Singapore, you can enjoy fun-filled activities that join together a personalised skincare and ice cream-making experience. This is a treat for both your skin and your tastebuds that you wouldn't want to miss. 


Kat Von D accused of scamming by fans



Kat Von D is embroiled in another controversy. Fans have accused the artist's brand of scamming people, saying they sold a USD20 full-sized Tattoo Liner tube that supposedly contains the same amount of product as a sample size. The allegations first started when a customer posted on Facebook that the cartridge of her full-sized liner isn't even nearly as full as the liner's body. In an Instagram post, Kat Von D responded by saying, "The cartridges in both full-size liners and mini liners are the same — it’s the amount of product inside each cartridge that is different." She then went on to explain more specifics about actual measurements done for filling in their products. While it went on to appease others, others are still sceptical. What do you think?

Our perception of fringed hairstyles has significantly changed over the years. We no longer see them as just the 'do we used to don as a kid but more of a chic or maybe even sexy way of framing our features with the help of our crowning glory. That, and of course the 'protagonist vibe' it gives us as inspired by the popularity of Asian drama leading ladies often seen with a similar hairstyle. So whether you're already sporting some bangs or are just about to get on the fringe fancy train, let the Community show you how they do their fringed 'dos to give you some inspo.

We've all heard about the latest Kardashian drama. But just in case, here's a quick refresher: Khloé Kardashian broke up with Tristan Thompson after it was reported that he was cheating with — cue gasp — Kylie Jenner's BFF Jordyn Woods. At first, Kylie was torn about the whole ordeal, but ultimately blood is thicker than water and Jordyn was completely shunned by the Kardashian-Jenner family. Kylie, who was living with Jordyn, even asked Jordyn to move out of her guest house. 



But it's not just their friendship that she's cutting. Savvy shoppers of Kylie Cosmetics noticed that the beauty mogul slashed the price of the Kylie x Jordyn Lip Kits by more or less half the original cost. It's good news for the early birds but as of now, Jordy Velvet Liquid Lipstick Lip Kit is already sold out. If this happens to be your holy-grail lippie, don't worry. Here's a list of lipsticks that are good dupes for the berry shade.


Colourpop New Rules

USD4.40 (colourpop.com)


Although it's not a liquid lipstick, this dusty mauve shade from Colourpop is still a dead ringer for the Jordy Velvet Liquid Lipstick. Like any Lippie Stix, it's enriched with mango, avocado and shea butter for lip nourishment. But we do know Colourpop lipsticks have a tendency to be drying on sensitive lips so it's important to prep your puckers with hydrating lip balms.


NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague

If you prefer liquid over the traditional stick, the closest dupe we can find is NYX Cosmetics' Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague. It's a shade between wine and berry pink and can look a little more purple on light skin tones. You can mix this shade with a bit of your favourite red lipstick to make it warmer and a closer match to the Jordy Velvet liquid lipstick.


MAC Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in D For Danger

USD18.50 (maccosmetics.com)


This matte lipstick looks brick red on the bullet but when applied it turns into a beautiful wine colour much like the Kylie Cosmetics one. Unfortunately, we can't find a good lip pencil to match this shade but there's still a way to get that precise cupid's bow. You can just use a nude lip pencil to serve as a guide on where you should fill out the colour and you'll still get that sexy, full lips.


Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Berry

Loving the lip gloss trend? Too Faced's Melted Berry will deliver an almost identical shade of Jordyn Velvet Liquid Lipstick but in a different finish. Since it's liquid you can deepen the hue or make it cooler easily by mixing with other lipstick shades.
