We Think These Products Are Worth The Money | Clozette

We all love a little splurge here and there. And why not? We've worked hard and it's good to treat ourselves from time to time. Although money can't buy happiness, it can buy a lot of fashion and beauty goodies that can put us in a festive mood. But of course, we should also spend wisely. Read on to know which items we think are worth our hard-earned cash.

Kersie

Creative Director




"I've always adored minimalist design when it comes to time pieces. And Swatch's new additions to their SKIN collection are no exception. The timeless and elegant look of the watches perfectly matches my chic outfits. I'd pick the SKINOTTE (black) or SKINMOCA (gold) for everyday office wear and the romantic SKINCHIC (rose gold) for date nights."

"The THREE Whisper Gloss, with its tube packaging and glossy texture, looks more like a lip gloss than an eye colour at a glance. But that’s the beauty of it. Its wand applicator allows quick, fuss-free strokes on the eyelids. The liquid texture then transforms to powder form as I blend the colour using my finger. The result is a shimmery finish for natural-looking radiance on the eyes."


Jordianne

Sub-Editor




"I'm a fashion minimalist. I like clean lines, neutral colours, and subdued elements. But sometimes, there are just things outside your comfort zone that magnetise you. The Jimmy Choo Lockett Petite bag is one of those things for me lately. It still has the minimalist style that I love, but it also comes in a show-stopping metallic hue that is so mesmerising."

"As much as I like minimalism for most of my things, this quirky cosmetic bag from LeSportsac caught my eye. The handcrafted techniques used in this piece such as felting, sewing, knitting, and wrapping exudes craftsmanship that takes me in awe and it gives that 'play and be at ease' vibe that's perfect for when I'm travelling and would just want a piece of fun."



Therese

Features Writer and Community Specialist



"It's no secret that I adore sling bags. And when it comes to bag aesthetics in general, I prefer sleek and sophisticated designs. That's why this Kate Spade New York Cameron Street Dilon in Rosso immediately caught my fancy. Hopefully, I can get my hands on these!"

Dhivya

Campaign Executive




"I'm all about that 5-minute makeup routine for days when the struggle is real. We recently received the Le Stylo Smoky eyeshadow stick in Delicat Wood from L’Oréal and it has elevated my ordinary no-makeup makeup look to a TGIF, dance the night away look. These sticks are really helpful for Fridays when you're too lazy to go full face and just want to sparkle."

Fashion and beauty are two industries that are constantly colliding and definitely complementary. This is why when collaborations between our favourite fashion labels and beauty brands happen, it is truly something worth paying attention to.


The inspirations from fabrics and signature look manifested into palettes and makeup packaging are truly heart-fluttering for us beauty and fashion enthusiasts, and this is the very reason why we're bringing you a list of some of the designer x makeup brand collabs we can't help but go gaga over. 


Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder



Smart, sophisticated, strong, and sensual — these are the values in mind when VB collaborated with Estee Lauder for their Autumn/Winter 2017 collection. Going for glamorous golds and Posh Spice's signature sultry eye look, this collection is definitely one for the books especially if you love luxuriously looking and feeling makeup ranges.


Balmain x L'Oreal 



Ever since it was announced back in May, we can't help but get psyched for this collaboration. With the luxurious feel of Balmain given at L'Oreal's friendly price point, we're crossing our fingers that from the nudest to the boldest shade, we also get a chance to take home a lippie from this range on this side of the world.



Jeremy Scott x Sephora



MOSCHINO has t their first makeup collection with Sephora and needless to say it was bear-y cute! The fashion brand's creative director Jeremy Scott says the collaboration is a nod to the power of makeup and how beautiful it is that it has the capacity to affect one's mood. Well, Jeremy, with the fun colours in the collection and the adorable packaging, our mood is very much alleviated by this collaboration and we're already crossing our fingers for the next one.

One of the most iconic names in fashion teamed up with Australian cosmetic brand ModelCo for what is said to be 2018's most coveted collaboration. There are still slim details regarding this tandem but with the beauty brand's high-quality formulas and innovative packaging with the sophisticated aesthetic of the designer,  we're already shaking in our boots in excitement!
