FIRST ASIAN STORE FOR FRENCH SWIM AND LINGERIE BRAND ERES

Eres opened its first boutique in Asia at the Four Seasons Hotel Singapore recently. The 484 sq ft store is the French luxury brand's 43rd boutique worldwide.

Founded in 1968, it is known for its well-cut swimsuits in graphic designs and bold colours, and feminine lingerie which enhances the female form.

Its Spring Summer 2016 swim and lingerie collection is on sale, with prices ranging from $125 to $700.

The store is located at 190 Orchard Boulevard, Four Seasons Hotel Singapore, 01-12 (tel: 6684-4080).


LANEIGE EXPANDS TWO-TONE COLLECTION

Following the launch of the popular Two Tone Lip Bar in March last year, South Korean cosmetics brand Laneige has added four new lip colours ($34) and four eye shadow bars ($38).

Each bar contains two distinct colours, set in an oblique shape to allow for more natural gradation with just one application.

The new lip colours combine a high gloss and semi- matte lipstick to give lips a fuller look. The creamy texture also makes it easy to apply smoothly.

The new eye shadows are formulated with jewel powder, a mineral pigment that adds a subtle shimmery effect, which helps to visually brighten the eyes.

They also contain aloe vera powder and a vitamin E plant derivative, which the label says will moisturise the skin around the eyes and is ideal for all skin types.

The new Two Tone Lip Bars and Two Tone Shadow Bars are available at Laneige boutiques and counters.


INNISFREE RELEASES NEW SUN PROTECTION GEL

South Korean brand Innisfree has released a sunblock that it says provides the skin with up to 50 times more protection against burns caused by ultraviolet rays.

The Innisfree Extreme Safety 60 Sun Gel ($29) is also said to protect the skin against rays that penetrate the skin's dermis and cause premature ageing and wrinkles.

The light textured gel, which is sweat- and water-resistant, is equipped with SPF50+ and PA+++ and contains extracts of aloe and green tea to keep skin hydrated and fresh.

The Innisfree Extreme Safety 60 Sun Gel is available at Innisfree stores.
