Even if we already have a set of beauty and fashion staples in our collection, we're still always on the lookout for fascinating new products. Sometimes, it can be a bit overwhelming to discern which ones are worth the splurge, but in the end, we always find at least one that catches our fancy. Ahead, the latest releases that we find promising.
Enchanted Crown Ring in Sterling Silver, SGD129/~USD96.48; PANDORA Rose SGD159/~USD118.92
"When it comes to fashion jewellery, I look out for unique designs. I found PANDORA's Spring 2018 collection to be charming, and I particularly like the Enchanted Crown Ring in Sterling Silver and Rose, which are adorned with sparkling stone accents. Each piece is already adorable on its own and when they're stacked together, they transform into an elegant design that’s great for a dinner date."
"To celebrate its beauty category’s fifth anniversary, Net-A-Porter curated the Net-A-Porter Beauty 5th Anniversary Kit, a vanity pouch containing their 12 bestselling products since their launch. From the 111 Skin Rose Gold Mask and Anne Semonin Express Radiance Face & Eye Cube to the Marc Jacobs Mini Mascara in Velvet Noir and Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder, beauty lovers — like me! — are in for a treat!"
"I'm not a big fan of wearing perfumes and I've yet to find my signature scent, but the Bottega Veneta Knot Absolute perfume caught my interest. I imagine the perfume to smell as elegant as the miniaudiere that inspired it. The scent is said to be a mixture of lavender and orange blossom, with a touch of jasmine, rounded out by myrrh."

"I've always been interested in Jeremy Scott's eccentric aesthetic so I can't wait to get a taste of this bold collab collection with MAC Cosmetics. Plus, that tribute to mixtapes and boomboxes? Genius!"

"As a petite girl, I love wearing heeled shoes to elongate my silhouette. I prefer chunky heels over slim stilettos because they're more comfortable for me to wear as I feel more grounded and balanced with them on. As for shoe designs, I stick to those that can complement my colourful, pastel-hued wardrobe so I almost always go for neutrals and florals. That's why I was immediately drawn to these two shoes (Dusty Lilac & Floral) from Bata Red Label, a collection that's jointly developed by Bata and Aldo. The affordable price point is also a bonus."
"When I first heard that Urban Decay will be launching the new limited edition Urban Decay Backtalk palette, I was a bit sceptical if it could live up to the quality of the popular Naked palettes. However, once I was able to check it out up close, my mind immediately changed. Now, I can definitely say that it's an amazing multi-purpose palette. It's got great neutral and mauve eyeshadows on one side and nice blush and highlighter shades on the other side. I'm totally buying this baby during my next Sephora trip."
