It’s chinese new Year, so turn up the heat with auspicious reds.
COAT LUNAR NEW YEAR LIMITED EDITION COLOURS
This Chinese New Year set comprises colours - red and gold - that spells total auspiciousness!
Given that nail polishes for me last less than three days, I've finally found a brand that will stay tight for 10 days without chipping.
Try a new twist: Leave your nail base red and, in French manicure style, top the nail off with gold tips.
With the vitality of red and prosperous gold on your nails, this new year could be a really good one.
Available at Hands+Feet Studio at 44, Siglap Drive, Hui Aesthetics at 57, Eng Hoon Street and 76, Haji Lane.
MAC LADY BUG LUSTRE LIPSTICK
One of my pet peeves is non-hydrating lipsticks that accentuate my ugly lip creases.
But here's one that will not embarrass me.
This shade of red is so red that it'll probably bring you more good luck than 10 lion dancers prancing around your home.
The MAC Lady Bug Lustre Lipstick moisturises lips well and lasts for four hours - even with the non-stop talking.
You can slot this slick and small lipstick anywhere in your bag, and top up on the go.
Available at all MAC stores.
TARTE TARTELETTE AMAZONIAN CLAY 12-HOUR BLUSH LIMITED EDITION IN CELEBRATED
It may be all about that red. But we think it's safe to keep our cheeks relatively subtle.
This dusty pink with neutral-to-warm undertones is perfect for creating the naturally flushed cheeks illusion.
The blusher is definitely a "fade-free and flawless wear".
Its semi-matte finish kept my face looking fresh for 10 hours.
What's even better, this pink-ish nude blush goes perfectly with a bold matte lip (obviously we're thinking the CNY red-lip idea).
Available at Sephora stores
