TBG Interview: Indie Lee Skincare founder, Indie Lee

A rare brain tumour was the rude awakening for Indie Lee. She was given six months to live, but survived it. The doctors said it could be the result of an unhealthy environment and the products she was applying on her skin. Following the brand’s debut at Sephora Singapore’s recent Spring/Summer 2019 launch, Indie Lee shares with The Beauty Gazette her trigger for a fuller life, and the creation of a  cleaner beauty brand. After I was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor in 2008, and recovered from it, I made it my mission to educate and empower others to live their healthiest lives. Our products serve to underline this message. When I first started the brand, I had no beauty experience and no industry connections – I was previously in accounting. But I was on a mission and I found my way. For us, it’s really speaking to a psychographic versus a demographic. We aren’t chasing one profile or age group. We want to connect with people undergoing a transformation in their life, be it pregnancy, a …

Keep hair colour fresh, for longer

Nothing is more disappointing than spending hours in a salon to get that perfect hair colour, and having it dull after the first two washes. The creators of haircare label Infuse My. Colour saw the frustration that many had with their faded colour, and set out to offer a solution. “We are hair colourists who decided that it was time to call out colour fade and lacklustre pastels on blondes, for good,” says co-founder Rob Forgione. “Infuse My. Colour delivers gorgeous tones without drying the hair out or making it feel grainy. They are calibrated to deliver tones that are always appealing.” In Asia, where bleach-bottle blondes and daring bold shades are popular, Infuse My. Colour’s bestsellers are the Cobalt, Platinum, Ruby Shampoos, and Treat Conditioner. The range is made to intensify and maintain salon-fresh hair, and to lightly dye light and bleached hair in a fuss-free manner. The Cobalt Shampoo (left) maintains the cool, ashy tones in hair, and adds depth to brown colours. It also gives bleached hair a mint-green denim shade.     …

TBG Interview: Holly Thaggard, Supergoop! Founder and CEO

Sunscreen is that one anti-ageing skincare product category that works for sure. Wrinkles, spots and sagginess are warded off as long as you use sunscreen consistently, and if possible, way before the spots and wrinkles appear. But Holly Thaggard’s concerns weren’t exactly just about clear and firm skin when she launched her dedicated sunscreen beauty line Supergoop! a decade ago. Skin cancer was. As Supergoop makes its mark at Sephora Singapore stores, Thaggard shares the story behind her brand with The Beauty Gazette. I decided to launch Supergoop when a close friend of mine was diagnosed with skin cancer when we were in our early 30s. I set out to learn everything there was to know about sun exposure. What I found was that skin cancer was the most common type of cancer in the U.S., and that it was primarily preventable with daily SPF. But no one wanted to wear it because it didn’t feel good, so that’s when I got to work. The three things we stand for as a brand help set us …

Sunday Riley: Treats for the skin

Good genes for great skin can come in a bottle. At least, according to the cult skincare label Sunday Riley. One bestseller of this US-based beauty brand is its Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment. The multi-award-winning formula exfoliates skin to clarify and smoothen instantly. Apparently, it is also a go-to for celebrities and models who need an instant skin-boost before shows.

Fenty Beauty Stunna Review: Lip Paint Uncensored

Following its official launch in September, and the Holiday collection release barely a month later; it has followed-up with a single product: a bright red liquid lipstick for all skin tones.
