It’s the best time of the year to go for a resort vacation, frolicking on the beach, and enjoying the sea breeze. But even if you can’t afford to get away, nothing should stop you from getting one of these new, gorgeous products that will make you feel like you’re on a holiday.
1. Have a glass of pina colada…
The perfect summer beverage, the pina colada with its rich taste of rum, coconut milk and pineapple is a refreshing cocktail that we love most when shaken with ice.
The Body Shop launched the Pinita Colada collection for summer happy hour. The collection consists of a range of body-loving products (from body wash to body butter), but our favourite is the Pinita Colada Exfoliating Cream Body Scrub (SGD36.90). This contains read shredded coconut (not kidding!) and has a refreshing and lightweight texture that will leave your skin feeling smooth and soft.
2. … and a lime mojito!
Another beloved summer drink: the refreshing lime mojito. Now, wear it on yourself with the new Calvin Klein CK One Summer, launched this year. Inspired by a summer adventure in the jungle, the fragrance contains accords of lime mojito, lemon, guava, and cedar, giving it an invigorating scent.
3. Sail away on a yacht
The best time to sport nautical-themed anything? In summer, of course! And the most subtle of them all: nautical-themed nails. The Laneige Summer Collection Marine Nail Kit (SGD23) comes in four classic nautical shades (royal red, marine blue, white, light blue) for you to get creative with different colour combinations. The nail kit also comes with an easy-to-use stencil, line and deco stickers for you to effortlessly up your nail game.
4. Achieve a sun-kissed look
Even if you haven’t been holidaying in the Caribbean, it doesn’t mean you can’t create a sun-kissed look. The new By Terry Sun Cruise Sun Designer Palette (SGD115) features bronzers, blushers, and highlighters that create a healthy glow to your complexion. We love the wavy design on the case and palette, and how easy it is to wear the colours. It’s available in two shades.
5. Sink your teeth into summer fruits
Enjoy some peaches – on your eyes. This limited edition Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette (SGD76) is flying off the shelves and we’re not surprised why. Featuring 18 shades of peachy pinks, corals, bronzes, and purples, this palette also has a juicy scent of peach, making it a must-have for any serious beauty enthusiast.
6. Hang out on a tropical island
Nail the sunkissed look without risking sun damage with the new Beached Bronzer (SGD42) from Urban Decay. Great on your face and even your body, this finely-milled, super-soft formula doesn’t streak, and glides on smoothly onto your skin. Its matte and sheer coverage makes contouring look natural. Otherwise, dust lightly onto the apples of your cheeks for a healthy glow. In two shades, this is already available at Urban Decay’s free-standing stores at VivoCity and Bugis Junction, and will be available at Sephora from 9 June.
