Behind Angelina Jolie, Scar Jo, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and co.’s perfectly bee-stung contoured pouts are good genes – and spoiler alert – a glam squad. Now, American beauty giant Estee Lauder is rolling out that same A-list treatment with its own esteemed team of global makeup artists at its upcoming Lip Lounge.
The pop-up event – think of it as a day spa complete with a bathtub and boudoir set up – happens from July 12-July 18 at the Paragon lobby. Its team of beauty gurus who hail from South Korea, Taiwan, and Singapore will be on hand to give a flash makeover for those who register for a session (sign up via a QR code below).
To give your lips some T.L.C, these makeup pros will turn to their secret to achieving perfect lips: the brand’s first-of-its-kind Pure Color Envy Lip Care Collection. This kit, which comprises four star products, let you scrub, hydrate, sculpt and revive your puckers. The range’s easy-to-use factor also means you can create perfect lippies on your own.
For proof of this, just watch how the four It girls above – actress and TV host Amanda Chaang; silat world champ Nurul Suhaila; street style star Guan Min; and model and host Hanli Hoefer – create their own distinctive lip looks that match their personalities. And, all without the help of any glam team.
A 101 Guide To Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Envy Lip Care Collection
As with skin, the first step to naturally beautiful lips is to exfoliate. Using refined sugar crystals, this sloughs away chapped, flaky skin on the puckers to leave behind a smoother, brighter surface effortlessly. Simply apply onto clean, bare lips, then rub lips together to activate the key ingredients, with any excess to be wiped off or left on – the crystals will melt into a luxurious balm. Hyaluronic acid and an Advanced Moisture Complex add a boost of hydration so that your lippie’s bound to glide on. PS. Its sweet vanilla mint scent is highly addictive.
We all love a beauty product that reacts intuitively to its wearer to bring out their best. This stick balm not only boasts a rich yet lightweight formula that leaves a soft, satiny finish, but also imparts a pink tint that reacts to the body’s pH to enhance the natural colour of one’s lips. Plus it has an intensely hydrating time-release moisture complex with hyaluronic acid to help your puckers stay silky soft and moisturised all day. What this also means? You can wear it alone for some light colour, or use it as a luxuriously hydrating base coat.
Yes, it’s possible to bottle magic. With a glossy liquid texture and the brand’s Maxi Lip technology, this helps to enhance the curves of puckers for a noticeably plump and sculpted pout. A blend of hyaluronic spheres moisturises and smooths, while its clear tint turns a flattering rosy pink upon contact with lips for a healthy glow. While wearing a coat alone guarantees an enviably lush pout, it adds the same volumising effect when worn under lip colour – the formula is non-sticky so layering still feels comfortable. Another feel-good factor: the minty cool sensation that it leaves behind.
Think of this as an all-in-one moisturiser, exfoliator, filler and colour corrector for your puckers. Its special active ingredient complex contains hyaluronic acid that not only flushes lips with moisture, but also reduces flakiness. A technology that the brand calls Maxi Lips creates the illusion of a plumper pout, while its universally flattering, soft pink hue lends a healthy, pretty tint. Slather it on thick with the wand applicator at bedtime for an intense overnight treatment, then throw it into your bag before heading out in the AM to instantly revive lips on the go.
