Unboxing: Laura Mercier Blush Colour Infusion | Clozette


Blushes can be a bit underrated when compared to mesmerising eyeshadow palettes or feature-sharpening contour kits. But hey, it's an important ingredient in one's makeup look, too. Just a swipe of the subtlest colour gives your cheeks a more lively glow and a distinct vibrant appeal that makes all the difference to the entirety of the look. With Laura Mercier's Blush Colour Infusion blushers, your cheek colour will never take the backseat again when it comes to your makeup routine.


No need to worry about over-tapping colour with this blush's sheer and buildable formula for the perfect fresh-faced flush. It's also weightless, lasts for up to 10 hours, and designed to layer flawlessly on either bare skin or both liquid and powder products so you don't have to worry about the application whether you are just chillin' or are on the go. Plus, you can go safe with nice pinks and subtle reds or go bold and experiment with deeper mauve and earthy tones, making your blush experience like never before.  


Ready to have fun, get flushed, and embrace your blush crush? Check out our swatches in the video above.

Getting that coveted smooth, clear skin is already a feat in itself. But when you factor in the changing weather conditions, whether you’re in your hometown or out and about while travelling, the game changes and gets harder. It can be overwhelming to change routines depending on the season, but with the right products, you’ll find that the results are worth it. Ahead, our picks for all seasons.


Spring

Saborino Morning Facial Sheet Mask, USD10.06 (ourshop.com)


Trim down your routine: The gradual transition from the harsh winter cold to the easing chill of spring will make your skin feeling drier and more congested than ever. So make sure your skin is moisturised but don’t clog it. You need a multi-purpose product that’s as refreshing as the citrusy scents of spring. The Saborino Morning Facial Sheet Mask in Fruit & Herb is designed to combine face wash, skincare and makeup base in one for a trimmed-down beauty routine.


Skin Food Black Sugar Mask Wash Off, USD6.08 (ourshop.com)


Exfoliate: Springtime is the season for renewal and new beginnings — the same goes for your skin! Slough off your skin’s old layer by exfoliating and make way for clearer, brighter and softer skin underneath. Apply a layer of the Skin Food Black Sugar Mask and wash it off for a fresher complexion.


Summer




Nature Republic Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera Cleansing Gel Foam, USD3.35 (ourshop.com)


Use soothing products: Skin irritation is very common during the summer, so keeping your skin cool and refreshed is a necessity. Because of aloe vera’s cooling and soothing benefits, it’s no secret that it’s a favourite ingredient amongst beauty lovers. Bag this Nature Republic Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera Cleansing Gel Foam when the hot summer days come for a rejuvenating start to your routine.



Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream, USD19.43 (ourshop.com)


Hydrate and moisturise: Travelling during the summertime? Make sure you’re prepared to keep your skin moisturised. With the heat comes dehydration, so make sure you give your skin some thirst quenching solutions. The Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream is an all-in-one moisturising cream you can use for your face, lips and even hair.



Fall



Sunkiller Perfect Water Essence SPF50+ PA++++, USD12.63 (ourshop.com)


Don’t forget sunscreen: While we all retire our summer outfits for Fall, one thing that we shouldn’t put at the back of our closets during the seasonal transition is sunscreen. While this beauty product is often associated with the sun and summer, your chances of getting sunburnt during the Fall season doesn’t disappear. UVA is present all year round and is reflective on surfaces like concrete and glass. So while you enjoy the comeback of your knee-length boots and mauve-coloured MOTDs, don’t forget to use a lightweight skincare product with sun protection benefits like the Sunkiller Perfect Water Essence SPF50+PA++++.



Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum, USD40.56 (ourshop.com)


Maintain suppleness: Fall is a hot-and-cold in-between season, making it extra tricky to deal with. One day your skin is greasy from the heat and next, it’s flaking due to the drying breeze. Such changes can lead to dull, aged, and less supple skin. So make sure you have a product that can help your skin regenerate and repair like Elizabeth Arden’s Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum. The silky smooth serum helps re-texturise and revitalise skin for a smoother, more radiant skin that’s youthful to the look and touch.



Winter



For Beloved One Hyaluronic Acid GHK-Cu Moisturizing Bio-Cellulose Mask, USD33.26 (ourshop.com)


Take that extra skincare step: Ah, the cold! It might be a great treat to your skin as it keeps it tight, but all ups can have their downsides. The tightness can easily transform into dryness and tautness. Taking an extra step to get your skin hydrated is the way to go. For Beloved One’s Hyaluronic Acid GHK-Cu Moisturizing Bio-Cellulose Mask not only helps repair and rejuvenate the skin from damages caused by the harsh season, the essence is also packed with hyaluronic acid that helps alleviate skin dryness and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.



Clarins Tonic Body Treatment Oil, USD42.96 (ourshop.com)


Don’t forget your body: The skin on your body needs moisture, too! All the layers we wear during the winter serves no armour against the dryness and dullness caused by the cold temperature. Our winter skincare soldier? Clarins Body Treatment Oil. Formulated with aromatic essential oils and hazelnut oil rich in vitamins A and E, this product preserves skin elasticity and leaves the skin nourished and satiny-smooth without feeling tacky.
