Burberry Beauty

Heard from the RMK SA that Luxasia will be launching the new Burberry Beauty line in Singapore around July but it's not confirmed yet which department store it will be at. The line will debut worldwide in July in 30 doors, including Nordstrom in the U.S., Harrods in London and Lane Crawford in Hong Kong. Given the prestige factor of the brand, my guess is that it will be at either Tangs Orchard or Takashimaya. The collection ranges in price from US$24 for a Lip Definer pencil to US$59 for the Sheer Foundation compact, so I expect to see pricing around that of Dior. The lipsticks are embossed with Burberry's trademark checks.

There are also rumours that Jill Stuart will be launching in Singapore. Not sure how credible it is but if it turns out to be true, well, it's about time!

Oh my you literally made a heart jump a little when you mentioned the rumours of Jill Stuart coming to Singapore. Goodness knows that means no more fretting frantic spending while in Japan/obligatory overwhelming cp orders! :p

Hi Haru,

I agree that the time is ripe for bringing in the hugely popular brands into Singapore, as our local makeup fans and shoppers seem to be flocking overseas to get items from these brands. It does seem like our market is quite ready for the introduction of these brands. Will Kose be the party to bring Jill Stuart in? If Kose is listening, I'd rather they take away Beaute de Kose, and bring in Jill Stuart instead.

im definitely looking forward to Jill Stuart in local stores. hopefully the prices will be reasonable.

hi Laura,
As Jill Stuart is under the Kose umbrella, it should be Kose bringing it into Singapore (if that rumour is true). The prices will be high, but hopefully it will be around the range of RMK.
