Velvet dresses are becoming a staple in every one’s closet lately; it’s no wonder then why the makeup industry has taken their love for the material to the next level. Simply apply a coat of coloured mascara, then line your top and lower lashline with a colourful pigment, and smudge it. The result is a breathtaking soft, velvet look that we guarantee you’ll want to wear for all the holiday parties you'll be attending.

Ah, lippies! Just when you thought you already have enough to say about them, you find yourself raving about this beauty staple all over again. And hey, we can't blame you! A simple swipe with these babies can absolutely change one's look and mood and we're pretty sure there's some magic involved.

Not to mention the fact that our lippie shade preferences also say a lot about our personality; nudes for practicality, reds are all about power and thrill -- you get the picture. But there's more to just choosing reds over nudes that make the whole lipstick-loving scene fun and exciting.

So no matter how diverse your current lippie collection is, we're giving you more reasons why you need to add these must-have hues in your beauty stash!



Some girls who can rock a red lippie at any time of day and at any occasion usually take nudes for granted. But as simple as this shade can be, this can be as striking as your favourite red lipstick if you only give it a chance. If you're not a huge fan of its paler hues, there's a lot of darker tones in the market that can definitely give you a bold, but natural-looking pout. Plus, brown nudes are so in right now so why not give that a go?


If there's one for nudes, of course reds also have their place in this list. Some people may find red a little too much, especially for daily wear, but always keep in mind that maybe you just haven't found the right one for you. 

Reds with cool undertones are perfect for those with fair skin tones, medium and olive skin tones can go for warmer and deeper shades, and wine and burgundy variations are the true match for those with deeper skin tones. 

Going red is an adventure on its own and a simple swap from your daily lippie to this this shade can make a huge difference in your mood and look (trust us, we know!).



Having a pink lipstick in your arsenal is an unspoken beauty rule, but hey, it exists! A pink flushed lip is perfect if you're not in the mood to sport a bold look and you're not feeling a nude lip either. It gives just the right amount of colour and can double up as an instant blush if you need a quick touch-up!



Didn't expect this one, didn't you? Calling out to girls who have the other three shades covered, this one can seem a little unconventional but it's more practical than you think. 

Black lippies can give dimension to your makeup look with the right amount of shading and blending. Smudging it along with your favourite lippie shade can give your lips a plumper effect and it can also double up as an emergency eyeshadow for day-to-night look. 

Going vampy and pastel-gothic are also some of the biggest trends for months to come so having this in your stash is more than perfect.

As bona fide shopaholics we love the adrenaline rush that kicks in when an online store we shop at e-mails us an exclusive code or discount, or just lets us know that they’re having “their biggest sale to date”. If you’re anticipating the next time that happens, well, you won’t have to wait long as November 11th, also known as Singles’ Day, is coming soon.

Known as the biggest online shopping day in the world, it’s the only time when brands and e-commerce websites go all out with their promotions and offers. Once 11.11 comes and the price of the item you’ve been eyeing for the past week, month, or year drops, get ready to snatch it up.

So whether you’re planning to stock up on your favourite beauty products or looking to tick off a few items from your holiday wish list, read below why you should make all those purchases during 11.11!


Huge discounts

11.11 is often compared to the West’s “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” sales, so if you’ve been wanting to make a drastic purchase, do it on this day when brands go all out with their discounts and offers.

Tip: Cart in all the things you want to buy a few days before November 11th, and when the day comes, look out for exclusive discounts like how Lazada will give out an 11% off storewide promotion, as well as a gift with purchase. Not only will you be purchasing items you love for less, but you’ll receive extra freebies too!


Bigger cashback

Something that physical shopping can never give you is cashback. Websites that offer money back when you shop online exist; and they offer bigger percentages on Singles’ Day. The best place to get cashback is from Shopback. So let’s say you were to shop at Lazada on 11.11, you’ll actually receive more cashback as they’ve collaborated to bring shoppers more bang for your buck.
