Beauty News of The Week: Tom Ford Releases A Lipstick Series Starring Its Hero Shades, Supergoop Goes Green & More
Tom Ford presents a collection of its best lipstick shades
When in doubt, we always go with the crowd favourites. That is the premise behind Tom Ford Most Wanted, an aptly-named Most Wanted collection comprising five of the brand’s signature and most iconic shades. These intense colours range from deep reds to dark maroons and feature the Scarlet Rouge, Impassioned, Velvet Cherry, Wild Ginger and True Coral. Each shade ($76) comes in four different finishes: smooth, velvety, matte, satin matte, and metallic. Available at www.sephora.sg.
Supergoop’s new look champions sustainability
Eco-warriors will approve of the new product packaging by American skincare brand (available at www.sephora.sg) which now uses 100 per cent recyclable materials and features cheery pops of yellow with bigger, bolder icons. On top of that, the formulae of all of its products boast a cleaner concoction of ingredients that are also said to be reef-safe and free of octinoxate – a chemical found in products like shampoos, sunscreen, lipstick, nail polish, skin creams, which has been shown to be potentially harmful to animals and the environment.
YSL Beaute and Armani Beauty are now available at Isetan
Besides retailing at Tangs’ and Metro’s online stores, these two beauty brands will now also be made available on Isetan’s e-tail space at www.isetan.com.sg. To celebrate the launch on this new site, customers who purchase YSL Beaute’s Instant Moisture Glow will receive an additional bottle for free while those who cart out any of the brand’s cushion compacts will be given a complimentary refill. When it comes to purchasing any cushion foundation from Armani Beauty, expect to receive a complimentary cushion case too.
Annesa has a new sunscreen that offers greater protection when in contact with sweat, water or heat
The Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Milk ($41.90, from www.watsons.com.sg) is formulated with a Thermo Booster Technology which reacts to solar and body heat to create a more uniform veil over the skin for better protection against UV rays. When the sunscreen – formulated with an Aqua Booster EX Technology and negatively-charged ions – comes in contact with sweat and water (these are positively charged compounds), it reacts and increases the protection on the skin. And with a water-resistant formula, this sunscreen works to prevent skin damage and accelerated ageing caused by harmful environmental aggressors.
