Style News: Beauty With Heart


Get glowing skin and help disadvantaged youth. Sounds like a good deal?

Laneige will donate up to $12,000 to Beyond Social Services - which benefits juvenile delinquents and underprivileged youth - if and when it hits its target of selling 5,000 pieces of the popular BB Cushion by Oct 4. Laneige will donate $8,000 if 4,000 pieces are sold by the deadline.

Prices of the BB cushion start at $59. Look out for the new anti-ageing version ($62) that promises to treat wrinkles; and two new shades 21P, a Pink Beige, and 35 Cocoa Beige.

From Sept 28, a week-long roadshow will be held at Suntec City West Atrium, Level 1, to anchor this campaign.

Model Sheila Sim and make-up artist Keith Png will be sharing their coming-of-age experiences at the event.


The new Cosme Decorte Liposome Treatment Liquid ($157, from Cosme Decorte counters) is another addition to the wide range of skin-softening treatment lotions available in the market.

This version contains the circulation-boosting butcher's broom root herb and the antioxidant-rich loquat leaf; as well as a liposome technology that supposedly delivers the active ingredients into the skin more effectively.

This product - fronted by supermodel Kate Moss - also marks Cosme Decorte's 45th anniversary.

Use the lotion on clean skin and before a serum.

Try before you buy - the brand is giving away trial-size 14ml bottles of the Treatment Liquid (along with a 14 ml bottle of the Cellgenie Lotion White, and a 14ml bottle of the Cellgenie Emulsion White) to 500 Style readers. Each set is worth $27.

Fresh launches its Seaberry Skin Nutrition Booster ($74, from the Fresh store at Ion and Sephora stores). Add a drop or two of the antioxidant-rich serum-oil into a dollop of your moisturiser or eye cream to make them more potent and energise the skin.

This new extension to the Seaberry range is a lighter version of the Moisturizing Face Oil and it contains other antioxidants such as rocou extract, tomato extract and camellia seed oil.


Madonna's Rebel Heart Tour kicked off in Montreal, Canada, on Sept 9 with outfits designed by Gucci's creative director, Alessandro Michele.

The pop diva was dressed in a gypsy-inspired outfit - a lurex, lace and jacquard bodysuit layered under a ruffled black skirt with generous embroidered patches, finished with a matching silk-fringed shawl, high-heeled lace-up leather boots, lace gloves and a wide-brimmed hat adorned with silk flowers.

Her dancers wore patchwork bodysuits, also designed by Gucci, with a mix of textured outerwear such as lurex shrugs with pleated ruffled sleeves, brocade jackets with embroidered patches and lace capes dotted with silk flowers.

Concert dates for The Rebel Heart Tour in Asia have been confirmed for next year. Go to for details.
