For its latest Chic Light Spring collection, the Japanese cosmetics brand celebrates the dewy freshness we love about springtime.
The Water Eyes Colour Ink ($58) is a double-ended eyeshadow applicator with one head each for matte and pearl textures. Available in 10 colours, its water-based formula provides a fresh feel, easy spreading and a close fit for eyelids.
The Multi Paint Colours ($45) comes in seven hues, creates a pure look with a relaxed matte finish on the lips and is the secret to slightly flushed cheeks.
Available in two limited-edition colours, pink and blue, Glow Gel ($33) adds a little extra sparkle to your look.
The collection is available at RMK counters at Isetan Scotts and Isetan Serangoon Central.
Developed by renowned Harley Street cosmetic surgeon Yannis Alexandrides, London-based skincare brand 111Skin has released several products to stimulate the body's natural defence mechanisms and reverse cell damage.
Its star product, the Y Theorem Repair Light Serum ($380), is an ultra-light version of the original Y Theorem Repair Serum, with brightening agents significantly boosting collagen production, supporting cell regeneration and providing defence against environmental damage.
Also part of the range is the Lift Off Purifying Cleanser ($80), Daily Orbit Energising Essence ($120), Space Anti Age Day Emulsion ($260) and Space Defence Bright Eye Lift Gel ($220).
111Skin is exclusively available at Robinsons The Heeren and at www.robinsons.com.sg.
Japan's leading drugstore brand has launched in Singapore with three of its stellar brands - Je l'aime, Softymo and Clear Turn.
The Je l'aime Fulvos Bright & Sleek Shampoo ($18.90) contains hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, pyrus malus (apple) fruit extract and swertia japonica extract and is formulated with fulvic coat essence, which works by removing build-up on scalp and hair.
For baby-soft skin in five minutes, check out Clear Turn, which has masks for every occasion. The Babyish Moisturizing Mask ($6.90 for a pack of seven) comes with soothing chamomile and refreshing baby mint.
Softymo's Lachesa range works hard and fast to keep skin free from make-up and dirt.
The Lachesca Hot Gel Cleansing ($23.90) turns warm upon application to penetrate into the pores. It contains key ingredients such as artichoke extract, which helps minimise the appearance of pores.
The products are available at Welcia-BHG and selected Watsons, Guardian and Sasa stores.
