NEW MATTE LIP SHADES FROM YSL BEAUTE
Six new leather-matte shades will soon be added to French beauty label YSL Beaute's iconic Rouge Pur Couture The Mats range.
Seductively bold and highly pigmented, the shades include Crazy Tangerine, a warm bright orange, and Black Red Code, a deep merlot shade.
The lipsticks are easy to apply and create a velvet finish that sits comfortably on the lips.
The launch of the new shades will be accompanied by a new lip top coat. The Rouge Pur Couture Set And Matte Lip Coat ($50) is a translucent liquid top coat which the label says will create a matte finish on any lipstick and help colour to last all day.
The lipsticks ($51) and lip top coat will be available at YSL Beaute counters from Nov 3.
LIMITED EDT VAULT REOPENS
Sneaker boutique Limited Edt has reopened its store, known as The Vault, at 313@Somerset after a revamp.
Wearing a sleek, modern look, with the burgundy, gold and mahogany hues of a gentleman's club, the space features a hidden section for rare and exclusive sneakers that takes its design inspiration from a bank vault.
To celebrate the reopening, Limited Edt has partnered with adidas Consortium to present a luxury edition of the Superstar sneaker. Drawing inspiration from smoking jackets and cigar rooms, the shoe (above) comes in a solid burgundy that makes it look almost like a dress shoe, with batik detailing on the side instead of stripes. It retails at $219.
The Vault is located at 04-13, 313 Orchard Road.
3INA OPENS IN SINGAPORE
