Freshian debuts in Singapore

You can now get your hands on one of South Korea’s most sought-after vegan cosmetics brands, Freshian, without hightailing it to Seoul.

The brand, launched in 2022 under South Korean consumer goods conglomerate LG Household & Health Care, is fully vegan-certified and cruelty-free.

All of Freshian’s products are formulated with fig, five types of hyaluronic acid and madecassoside – a pharmaceutical-grade extract derived from the Centella asiatica plant – to offer the best of both the make-up and skincare worlds.

The Egg-Like Cushion, which is supposed to impart a smooth, glowing “egg-like skin” upon application, has become a cult sensation.

Expect a number of other products such as Egg-Like Liquid Foundations, lip balms, serum lip tints, primers and sunscreens.

Prices start at $32 for a lip balm or lip tint. The products are available exclusively on Freshian’s official store on Shopee and Lazada.

Visitors can discover the beauty brand through several online and offline experiences at this outpost. They can scan the QR code for a festive Prada-verse filter or experience the ingredient story of Paradoxe fragrance through a motion-sensored display screen.

Chloe Fragrances drops holiday sets

For the festive season, Chloe Fragrances has introduced limited-edition holiday sets.

Priced from $205 to $290, the gift sets spotlight several classic scents by the French luxury brand, like its signature Chloe Eau de Parfum and Nomade. These are paired with delicately scented body lotions and other travel-size delights.

The brand also recently launched three new fragrances under its Atelier des Fleurs collection: Hysope, Immortelle and Chene. The scents pay tribute to the oak, the Middle Eastern hyssop bush and the Immortelle flower – three plants scoured from different parts of the world.

With 20 Atelier des Fleurs floral fragrances to choose from, you can wear these scents alone or layer two or three to create your signature fragrance.

Chloe Fragrances are available at Chloe VivoCity boutique, leading department stores and Sephora stores across Singapore.

Lenskart’s NFT art-inspired eyewear

Halloween may be over, but you can still get in on the fun with Lenskart’s spooky collaboration with Singaporean visual artist Howie Kim.

Called Bongdirk’s Nightmare, the limited-edition range is inspired by Bongdirk, a fictional cartoon character and non-fungible token (NFT) collection created by the artist.

Each piece in the capsule range of eyeglasses and sunglasses is adorned with subtly playful elements such as knives and hearts, syringes and Bongdirk itself. Syringe, for example, is a pair of stainless-steel spectacles with a syringe filled with “blood” on both temples, while Bongdirk Twins are tortoiseshell frames with a pair of Bongdirks adorning the sides.

Bongdirk’s Nightmare eyeglasses and sunglasses are priced at $148 and $98 respectively, and available at all Lenskart outlets in Singapore (except at IMM and Toa Payoh), and online at while stocks last. There is also a buy-one-get-one-free promo available online.
