Unboxing: Chantecaille’s Fall 2019 Makeup Collection | Clozette


The world, as we know, is suffering from numerous natural calamities — from the continually thinning ozone layer to the burning of the Amazon Rainforest. So it goes without saying that we must all do our part in trying to save it. As makeup lovers, one way we can do this is by supporting companies that pledge or partner with other organisations who work to conserve and save nature’s blessings. That said, we were excited to learn that Chantecaille’s Fall 2019 Makeup Collection was created to bring awareness to the ongoing plight of Africa’s most endangered species.


Their Luminescent Eye Shades (SGD87/~USD62.87) pay homage to specific animals: the elephant, rhinoceros, cheetah, giraffe, lion, and pangolin. They also have a new Cheek Gelée (SGD75/~USD54.20), a lightweight gel-cream blush that comes in raspberry shade called Vibrant. A portion of this collection’s proceeds will go to six African conservation nonprofits who've made a notable impact in saving these species. Excited to see what they have in store? Take a closer look at their new products as we unbox them in the video above.

How you get ready for the day is such a vital step in how your beauty look would last. And sometimes, with a filled-in calendar, it can be hard to squeeze in touch-ups in between all the hustle. Aside from getting heavy-duty makeup and skincare picks that you know would last you from day to night, take note that the beauty tools that help you in creating your chosen look also play a huge role in its longevity.


So to officially kick off Clozette Beauty Heroes 2019 (CBH), where we at #TeamClozette handpick our top recommendations in beauty based on testing and experience, we're sharing our favourite Beauty Tools that were launched this year!


Clozette Beauty Heroes 2019 Beauty Tools


P.S. Read 'til the end and find out how you can be one to take home beauty shopping vouchers.


For a perfectly clean base: Foreo Luna Mini 2

Clozette Beauty Heroes Beauty Tools - FOREO Mini Luna 2


The key to any good look is preparation. So it goes without saying that prepping your skin is a must. Our gadget of choice for this? The Foreo Luna Mini 2. This waterproof device gently exfoliates and give your skin some thorough cleansing, ensuring that residue of dirt and makeup won't seep into the skin as you retire for the day. With its eight intensity settings, you're in for a customised cleansing routine that will help you retain your skin's plump and healthy appearance. P.S. We're excited for its new sister, the Foreo Luna 3, too.


For healthy-looking skin with or without makeup: Skin Inc.'s Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light

Clozette Beauty Heroes Beauty Tools - Skin Inc Voyage Tri-Light


On days when you just don't have the time to buff and blend your makeup to perfection, it's better to have the option to go bare. But you don't really need to go to a facial centre for skin you'll be proud to go makeup-free for. Skin Inc.'s Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light delivers optimum results even at the comfort of your own home. Combining the technology of NASA, Chromotherapy and Low-Frequency Therapy to stimulate your cells and make for more effective product absorption, this wireless device is like your very own magic wand for achieving all your skin goals. We're stoked that this got a new model with a USB-charging capability this year! Bye, batteries.


For getting that permanent contour: ReFA Carat Face Massager

Clozette Beauty Heroes Beauty Tools - ReFA Carat Face Massager


Sharpen your angles the natural way with ReFA's Carat Face Massager.  Especially designed to hug the contours of your face perfectly (even your sensitive eye area), this beauty tool earned its cult-following in Japan for its micro-current massaging technology. Promoting skin elasticity and restoration by means of increased collagen production, not only will it make you say goodbye to contouring with makeup but it will also help make you go bare-faced more confidently. 


For a blow-out that's effortlessly chic: Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer


Clozette Beauty Heroes Beauty Tools - Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer


Most of the time, we leave hairstyling to the experts (because, truly, they're great at it!). But being able to do it ourselves at home is definitely a major plus. With the help of the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer, we can do just that. Earning the favour of many beauty enthusiasts across the globe, not only does it deliver the most amazing blow-outs six times faster than your usual hairdryer, but it's also created with technology that helps protect your hair from intense heat damage. No need to worry about frizzy, dry and lifeless-looking locks because you can expect fool-proof salon-like results with this one no matter how pressed for time you are. Plus, with new attachments such as Gentle Air and Smoothing Nozzle just recently released, we're looking to have more things to love about it.



For envy-worthy hairstyles: ghd Platinum + Professional Performance Styler

Clozette Beauty Heroes Beauty Tools - GHd Platinum + Professional Performance Styler

If you want something a bit more elaborate than a blow-out, ghd's Platinum + Professional Performance Styler is your best bet. It's got an Ultra-zone predictive technology that analyses your hair's needs to ensure less breakage and damage. This tech also measures the thickness and texture of your hair to give optimal and time-saving performance depending on its findings. So less hair damage, more experimental hairstyles to flaunt day-in and day-out. Cool, right?


Clozette Beauty Heroes is a curation of #TeamClozette’s top beauty picks based on testing and experience. We’re happy to have been able to try out many products in the past year, and we’re excited to share our favourites.

This September, we’re all about championing our voice by celebrating our beauty. We all have our own unique charms, which makes it even more imperative for us to showcase them at their best.

Blazer from MAJE F/W 2019

Blazer from MAJE F/W 2019 collection, price unavailable


“Living in the tropics has made me averse to outerwear of all kinds. The weather just doesn't get as cold as to warrant a blazer or coat! But there's no denying the chicness of a blazer even when every other piece in your ensemble is quite plain. It amps your style's beauty a notch higher. So I've decided to finally consider biting the bullet with the MAJE VILIA Noir blazer that's a mix of '60s hip and military chic.”

Our style and beauty picks for september include Fitbit Versa 2™

Fitbit Versa 2™, SGD318


“Exercise is a great way to stimulate our bodies into being healthier and I believe that beauty, at its core, should also include how fit we are from within. With this in mind, my eye immediately caught the new Fitbit Versa 2™, which delivers more advanced health, fitness, and smart features than its predecessors.  It ensures a holistic and more efficient wellness routine. It's also swim-proof, packed with features like Sleep Score and smart wake to make sure I get the most out of my beauty sleep. As the first-ever Fitbit to have an Alexa and Spotify smartwatch experience, it will keep me grounded with all my tasks even when I'm out exercising.”

PAZZION Light Blue Open Toe Block Heels

PAZZION Light Blue Open Toe Block Heels, price unavailable


“When it comes to footwear, I value quality over quantity. I don't mind paying for more as long as the item is worth it. While shoes are often an after-thought, to me, that shouldn't be the case. It's important to pick a good design that can bring out the beauty of what you're wearing. A great pair of shoes will also improve your stance and even the way you carry yourself in social situations. To update my mini shoe collection, I'm thinking of getting PAZZION's open-toed sandals with block heels in light blue. It's so versatile and looks like it's built to last many years!”

LEOWE Mini Lazo bag

LEOWE Mini Lazo bag, price unavailable


“No outfit is ever complete without a bag! Bags are my favourite accessory, and I can never go someplace without them. Aside from keeping my essentials safe, they add a whole other dimension to my look. Still, because I’m a no-fuss type of girl, I hate having to constantly move my stuff when I switch bags. That’s why I’m looking to invest in one with a classic style like LEOWE’s Mini Lazo bag. Despite being small, this one has enough compartments to fit all my essentials comfortably. It’s simple but chic because of its ribbon-like details, making it a completely versatile bag to fit any outfit. “

L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Dynamic Youthcare Cream

L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Dynamic Youthcare Cream, SGD100


“I have dry-combination skin so I need a hyper-moisturising cream that will hydrate my skin and help smoothen textured areas. My skin is also prone to looking dull and tired if not properly moisturised but I’m not a fan of greasy, oily creams. This is why I’m highly looking forward to testing out L’Occitane’s new Immortelle Precious Dynamic Youthcare Cream as it contains Hyaluronic Acid, dry skin’s best friend.”

Pandora Pink Murano Glass Leaf Hoop Earrings

Pandora Pink Murano Glass Leaf Hoop Earrings, SGD99


“Earrings are every woman's best friend. With the Autumn/Winter 2019 season creeping up, I can't help but opt for warm and flattering tones when it comes to my accessories. Pandora is launching its Autumn 2019 Collection, which features a collection of hand-finished designs in shades of pink. The Pink Murano Glass Leaf Hoop Earrings in rose gold is the perfect match to my everyday make up look — au naturel with a hint of rosy pink on the cheeks. A simple yet chic accessory that stands out without even trying.“

Milani Gilded Rouge Eyeshadow Palette

Milani Gilded Rouge Eyeshadow Palette, price unavailable


“This time I’m eyeing Milani’s new Gilded Rouge Eyeshadow Palette. I love it for its variety of colours and how versatile it is; it's great for day or night looks. I heard the pigmentation of the eyeshadow is really good, too, but still very easy to blend. I have very oily eyelids and this eyeshadow palette is said to be one that really stays on. It is definitely an eyeshadow palette that I’d use on a regular basis.”

Pantene Micellar Water Pure & Natul Shampoo

Pantene Micellar Water Pure & Natul Shampoo, SGD14.50 (guardian.com.sg)


“As a person who styles her hair with products and relies heavily on dry shampoo, it's not easy finding a shampoo that can help cleanse my scalp well. That's until I found Pantene Micellar Water Pure & Natul Shampoo. Its charcoal component helps detox my scalp from product build-up without drying my hair. Plus, it makes the scalp and hair feel fresh.”
