1. Burberry Summer 2016 Makeup Collection

Burberry’s latest makeup collection has stolen our hearts in more ways than one. Inspired by the playful heart-shaped prints from the Burberry Scarf Bar, it is aptly named ‘London with love’.

The collection celebrates bright coral, pink and red shades with cheerful heart patterns in a special blush palette, along with limited edition shades of Burberry Lip Velvet and Nail Polish.

Available from late May via TANGS at Tang Plaza, Tangs.com, Sephora ION and Sephora.sg.

2. Puma Fierce Core

Hot on the heels of RiRi’s Fenty collection, comes style icon Kylie Jenner as the ambassador for Puma’s Fierce training campaign. Our top pick is the street style worthy Puma Fierce Core ($169) training shoes.

Light weight and laceless, it features mesh overlays for breathability and a flex grooved outsole. Will it rival the similar looking Rihanna X Fenty sneakers? Only time will tell.

Available at Puma and Limited Edt Stores.
