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.

3. Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Collection

Created in collaboration with pop singer Charli XCS, Make Up For Ever’s new waterproof Aqua XL line ensures long wear with its highly pigmented formula — think intense hues in a variety of finishes, including matte, satiny, metallic, iridescent and diamond.

6. Pretty, modern chokers
Fashion trends are truly cyclical. How else can you explain the return of chokers?
The resurgence of the 90s trend has been spotted on everyone, from models Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid to actresses like Kate Winslet. We’re eyeing this Lourdes Cord And Chain Choker Necklace ($20) from Urban Outfitters.
More of our favourite chokers here.

9. Boda Skins Leather Jackets
A black leather jacket was the wardrobe staple I never knew I needed, not till I started seeing these Boda Skin leather jackets on all my favourite fashion bloggers.
Handmade by leather artisans, these jackets are guaranteed to last you at least 100 years. They also come in all sorts of timeless designs from bomber to military style.
10. Coach Pre-Fall Collection Rogue Bag
