Have a beauty junkie in your life that you would like to get a present for this holiday season? Or just want to treat yourself to something unique and different?

Take a look at these five places that offer customised products and packagings to give your present a personal touch that makes it just a little extra special.

1. Get your signature lipstick shade

Custom Lip Lab

Recently Dr.TWL Dermaceuticals launched their cosmeceutical makeup arm, including the Dr.TWL Custom Lip Lab, where you can customise their signature serum-based lipsticks to any colour that you like.

This is the brainchild of dermatologist Dr. Teo Wan Lin, who wanted to help her patients who suffer from skin issues like eczema and sensitivity to also be able to enjoy lip colour. While conventional lipsticks may contain ingredients that cannot be tolerated by these patients, the LipSerum Sticks contain active skincare ingredients that deliver skincare benefits. It is also 100% edible, preservative-free, and are safe for the eye/lip area, which makes it a perfect gift for someone with sensitive lips prone to allergic reactions. On top of its skin-loving promise, the brand also doesn’t compromise on how the colours look – the lipsticks has a one-of-a-kind finish and is vivid.

The LipSerum Stick retails at SGD96.30, with full customisation of colours, shimmer effects, and even flavours. Simply purchase the lipstick here, and then book an appointment here before going down to the Dr.TWL Custom Lip Lab.

2. Emboss your initials on your Dyson case

Personalised Dyson Case

Dyson has recently launched a personalisation service at the Dyson Demo Store at Funan. For new customers of the Dyson Supersonic or Airwrap, you’d get to choose a case in the colour of your choice, and have your initials professionally embossed onto the case (yes, you get to choose the colour to emboss them in too!)

And if you have previously purchased either the Supersonic or Airwrap, simply bring your existing case to Dyson Demo Store at Funan for free embossing.

3. Engrave your name on your perfume
