Since fall “officially” entered in the last few days of September, the world has been downing cups of Pumpkin Spice Lattes, cooking up their own batches of it, trying to find different versions to mix it up, and more. But what if there was a way for you to to take a “taste” of this delicious drink without the calories? What if you could wear it…as a lipstick?

Pumpkin Spice drinks may not be available everywhere in the world, but you can still be in on the trend by wearing some pumpkin spice-coloured lips! Admit it, the beauty junkie in you rejoiced.

To find out what you need for some pumpkin spice lips, check out our 4 lipstick picks below!

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick "Miami Fever"

What more can we say, other than the fact that the very definition of pumpkin spice can be seen in Miami Fever. It has the perfect blend of orange and caramel, with a hint of red in it, and KathleenLights created it (she is awesome). Plus it’s matte, which is so in right now, and it lasts for hours!

MAC Lipstick "Chili"

MAC Chili, described as a brownish orange-red, is pumpkin spice, but a little bit brighter. Definitely a head-turner -- if you’re the type who loves bright and neon lipsticks, this is the one for you! 



L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in “Blazing Lava”

Going down the drugstore route, we have Blazing Lava by L’Oreal, a lovely burnt orange with golden shimmers that make it a great statement lipstick for this time of the year. Perfect for those who don’t like overly matte lips, this color will will make you look like you’ve been drinking pumpkin spice lattes since you were born.



Clarins Rouge Prodige Lipstick in “Spiced Orange”

For a sheer version, Clarins’ Spiced Orange is a wonderful and easy way to sport pumpkin spice if you’re not yet that comfortable wearing such a bold color. This lippie will give you a beautiful wash of burnt orange on your lips as well as hydrate them throughout the day, because no one wants chapped lips.

Got an inspiring woman in your life? Well, then she deserves a treat! This holiday season, grab the chance to shower her with gifts that reflect her strong-minded spirit and independent drive. This goes beyond just a gesture and admiration for her incredible spirit; but it's also an open declaration that you understand the kind of woman that she is--one that you aspire to be.

So here are five gifts that any strong-minded, independent woman will thank you for.

--------------------------


A Good Read: A Motivational Book



Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg


Women stick together, sharing life-lessons and wisdom with one another to create a circle of strong-minded women who support and encourage each other through life. So share that gift of wisdom through a motivational book, much like this one from Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook. In Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, Sheryl Sandberg explains what it takes to be an effective leader while sharing her personal stories to empower women to reach their true potential.

A White Power Suit



Wool Blazer & Flared Pants


When it comes to business, image is everything (aside from wit and a sharp mind). So a polished power suit will make all the difference when it comes to commanding attention in the boardroom. A sleek power suit, like this ensemble from Pallas, will make a fabulous gift for the woman who has the confidence to rock an all-white suit without staining it with coffee during the morning rush. It's sophisticated chic at its best.



A Classic Tote



Marc Jacobs The Grand Majestic Leather Tote


Smart and driven women are all about staying organised. So help them do it in style with a classic handbag that comes with compartments and zipped pockets for her documents, gadgets, and makeup kit. Pick a style that easily goes from day-to-night, like this leather tote from Marc Jacobs that's perfect for both a business meeting and after work cocktails.



A Skincare Treat



SK-II ‘Wings of Change’ Facial Treatment Essences


Nothing boosts confidence more than a healthy, luminous glow. So gift her with a skincare product that commits itself to empowering women with the promise of beautiful, crystal clear skin. Inspired by two winged creatures – the butterfly and the hummingbird – the “Wings of Change” SK-II Limited Edition Facial Treatment Essence series is all about transformation and the capacity to take flight and soar to new heights. Truly a meaningful gift that she’ll appreciate. 


Choose from SK-II Iconic Set at SGD $259 / RM620; SK-II Flawless Beauty Set at SGD $558 / RM1,410; SK-II Beauty Blossom Set at SGD $348 / RM852; and SK-II Age Protect Set at SGD $478 / RM1,181.



A Stylish Workout Gear



Lululemon Drop It Like It’s Hot Leotard


A strong, healthy body equates to a strong and sharp mind. So keep her on top of her fitness game with functional exercise gear that’s a lot more stylish than the usual tank and track pants combo.

When we embarked on Clozette's very first Clozette Beauty Awards this year, we did so with the intention of giving our Beauty Community a bigger voice in the region. These are Clozetters who live, breathe, and love everything about all things Beauty and we wanted to give them a platform to celebrate their most beloved products and brands. At the same time, we wanted to also get together as a Community to place our Clozette stamp of approval on the beauty products that are highly-loved in the region. 


So since we just announced the Winners in our inaugural Beauty Awards, we thought it would also be fun to share a few fun-facts about Clozette Beauty Awards 2015. Here is everything you need to know at what went on in creating and launching our regional beauty award.


--------------------------


Sifting Through The Beauty Pile



Our Clozette Beauty Awards started in the hands of our Clozette Beauty Crew, consisting of beauty-obsessed Clozette staffers who are in the loop of the latest trends, product releases, and holy-grail products in the Beauty world. As a team, they sifted through all the products and separated them into main categories and sub-categories in preparation for product nominations from our Beauty Panel. At the end of it, we had split the awards into 4 main categories (skincare, makeup, haircare, and fragrances), further broken down into 31 sub-categories.

Selecting Our Beauty Panel

The main thing we wanted to do with our Beauty Awards was to ensure that every product nominated came from our regional Community. So who better to represent our community than our Clozette Ambassadors, specifically our Beauty girls who are synced into the latest trends in the Beauty world. By the time nomination forms were ready to be sent out, we had created a Beauty Panel that consisted of 50 Clozette Ambassadors and the Clozette Beauty Crew.


Finalising The Products For Voting



The Beauty Panel spent about a month carefully nominating products for each category and sub-category, listing out products that have worked for them and they regularly use in their beauty routine. The focus of the selection was that we wanted to find the highly-raved products in our Community. At the end of the nomination period, the Clozette Beauty Crew sifted through all the nominations and picked out the top-five nominated products under each sub-category. These would be the products that the rest of the Community voted on.


Countries That Participated & Number of Votes Cast




As a Regional Community, we knew immediately that we wanted a Beauty Award that went across the Clozette family--giving a voice to our Communities in Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, and Indonesia. Together, our community voted for their favourite products, creating a Community-curated list of holy-grail beauty products worthy of the Clozette stamp of approval. As a whole, our Clozette Beauty Awards received a total of close to 40,000 votes.
