Here's what happened earlier this week.



Wednesdays are usually humdrum. But not for us — and the beauty and fashion industries. There's always something exciting going on, and you bet we'll be the first ones to look for and learn about them. Here's what you need to know right now.

ZALORA Premium

ZALORA has launched their premium page. Curated especially for shoppers with a discerning taste in style in Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Malaysia, ZALORA Premium offers an assortment of products from brands people already love as well as premium products exclusively created for the site. Check out ZALORA Premium for women here.

Zara Augmented Reality

Zara will offer an augmented reality experience for shoppers worldwide for two weeks with the help of the Zara AR app. You can position your smartphone at store windows, centrally located podiums, and atop e-commerce boxes to see models Lea Julian and Fran Summers "come to life" as 7 to 12-second sequences on the screen of shoppers' smartphones. Experience it at Ngee Ann City, ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands, and [email protected] stores on 12 April.

Something dope

Milk Makeup has hinted at a new release on 20 April. So far their teaser only says "Something Dope" will be unveiled but no one knows what it will be. Some have guessed that it's an eyeshadow palette for smokey eye looks while others said it could be anything that's cannabis-infused since Milk is a vegan makeup brand.

Rainbow Meteorites

Guerlain Meteorites are already pretty to begin with, so their latest iteration — a colourful one in rainbow packaging — is just out-of-this-world gorgeous. 

Maison Christian Dior

Swing by the first-ever Maison Christian Dior travel retail pop-up in Asia Pacific at Changi Airport and get yourself a bottle or two of their fragrances, which now come in a 40ml-variant.

Now, check out what you may have missed at the start of the week here.



There's no topic more divisive in the beauty community than the debate on which lip finish is better — matte or gloss? Today we're gonna pick sides and make the case for matte lipsticks. We mean, what's not to love? They're long-lasting, beautifully pigmented and — most of all — not sticky. So although gloss still has a special place in our hearts, this time we'll be celebrating our first love when it comes to lipsticks. Ahead, the latest matte lippies that will momentarily make you forget about gloss. 

Clarins Joli Rouge Velvet


A typical downside of using matte lipsticks is their tendency to be drying to the lips. However, this is not anymore the case for most mattes right now. More and more makeup brands are infusing their matte lipsticks with nourishing ingredients. One of those lippies is the new Clarins Joli Rouge Velvet. It has apricot oil, jojoba and organic marsh samphire that help the formula glide smoothly on the lips. With this lippie, you'll be donning hydrated puckers all day!

LANEIGE Two Tone Matte Lip Bar

Since its release, the Two Tone Lip Bar has gotten a lot of hype. It even started the ombre lip trend that's still very popular today. And we're guessing that it will continue to be because LANEIGE recently launched a matte version of this beloved lipstick, a dream come true for all matte lovers.

Lunasol Coloring Crayon


Lunasol's Coloring Crayon is not just for the lips, you can also use it for the eyes and cheeks. Create that perfect no-makeup makeup look with its light yet moisturising texture. You can choose between Berry Pink or Natural Orange — two bright shades that are perfect for the summer.

Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick


Leave it to Fenty Beauty to give us a wide array of mega-rich shades — one for every mood. The slim design lets you define lips with good control. The formula is long-wearing and gives a petal-soft matte finish. You never have to worry about colour bleeding or feathering after application.  

Avon True Perfectly Matte


Pink shades are now the power colour for women everywhere. Avon knows this well, and that's why they came up with a collection featuring different shades of pink for every skin tone. With their wide colour selection, you'll surely find the best matte match for your lips.
