CAUDALIE'S NEW LIP BALM COLLECTION

French skincare company Caudalie has created a new range of tinted lip balms. The French Kiss collection contains antioxidant-rich grapeseed polyphenols which the label says helps to protect the lips.

The creamy and nourishing balm (above) - made of plant castor oil, sunflower oil, beeswax and aloe vera - leaves a sheer tint on the lips while creating a plumping effect.

The collection includes three colours: Innocence (baby doll pink), Seduction (rosy peach) and Addiction (raspberry red).

The French Kiss Collection ($19 a shade) is available at Sephora stores and online at sephora.sg .

SHISEIDO MEN LAUNCHES REVITALISING CREAM

Japanese beauty label Shiseido has created a new moisturising cream for its men's line.

The Shiseido Men Total Revitalizer Cream ($88) has a formula which the label says helps to energise and tone the skin, keeping it firm and fresh.

The soothing cream can be used both day and night after cleansing the skin or shaving and comes with application instructions to show users how to best massage the product into the skin.

The product is available at Shiseido counters islandwide.
