I was pleasantly surprised when this Agnès B. makeup pouch landed on my doorstep – I didn’t think that the makeup from this French fashion brand would ever make its way to Singapore.
According to the press release I received, Agnès B. Beauté created this set to mark its entry here. Unfortunately, it is currently only available at Changi Airport.
In the kit are:
- Contour Haute Def! Eyeliner in Black – A black angled eyeliner that promises to stay on for 12 hours.
Made in Germany, this pencil has an interesting tube with a slightly wider-than-usual rim.
I haven’t tested its claims to last but it did swatch decently (no skipping).
- Palette B. Perfect! Eyeshadow Trio in Pearl Harmony – A clear compact of three eyeshadows: a golden beige, an orange gold and a chocolate brown.
Made in China, these shimmery shadows have decent pigmentation.
I like how they swatch well and blend easily.
- B. Glossy! Stick Shimmering Lipstick in Framboise Glossy – A silky lipstick in a pleasant coral pink.
Made in China, this lipstick has no discernible scent.
I like its glide and soft shine.
- Agnes B.B. Cream – Made in France, this 6-in-1 tinted cream promises to impart firmness and radiance to the skin.
It has the grey tone associated with most BB creams.
The shade adjusts over time but it veers slightly more pink-toned than yellow.
This makeup set retails at S$80.50 and is worth more than a look, given that you’re getting 5 products for that price. The black liner is a basic item, while the lip and eye shades work wonderfully with each another, thanks to their complementary tones. The only iffy item in the set is the BB cream which is harder to match.
Do note that it can only be found at the main Nuance-Watson Perfumes & Cosmetics stores at Terminals 1 and 2 of Changi Airport, after immigration.
