Say Hello to Dior Backstage at ION!

If you’re in Singapore and not yet been to Dior’s Backstage concept store at ION mall, (basement right outside the train station exit) make your way there before 14th Feb, because first 25 visitors a day to upload a pic of themselves onto Instagram with the hashtag “#diorbackstagesg” will get a full-size Lip Maximizer free. No strings attached.

Besides the full-on rockstar treatment, the backstage store features a skincare lounge, a scent bar, and also products not available elsewhere, like the highly-coveted Pore Minimizer and Glow Maximizer primers, Dior false lashes (YES!!!), 3 Couleur Glow eyeshadow trios which I’ve never seen before, AND DIOR AIRFLASH FOUNDATION.

Yes. The famous airbrush in a can is finally here in Singapore and available in 6 shades with more likely to come in future. T_T.

There are also exclusive services like group makeup courses, outfit-based makeovers, and “makeup bag makeovers” where they’ll look through your messy pouch and tell you what’s working and what’s not.

(The best is the $120 makeover. Because it’s not only fully redeemable for products, but for a promo period this month, you also get a $135 Kim Robinsons hair salon voucher. Score!)

And that’s all that really needs to be said about it! The new store literally pulses with energy and is completely different from the rather austere and posh beauty boutiques along the ION beauty belt. 

she has great taste
we welcomed master chocolatier janice wong and buro 24/7 to our singapore shop for a lesson (and recipe) in the art of chocolate. 

the wildly creative chocolatier and chef janice wong has more than a little bit in common with willy wonka in all the best possible ways: she folds in local southeast asian ingredients like jackfruit, durian, red beans and palm sugar to create utterly unique desserts. she’s been named asia’s best pastry chef by the world’s 50 best (twice!). She also owns her own sweets shops, 2am: dessert bar and recently opened 2am:lab, a non-profit dedicated to inspiring culinary innovation.

we were so delighted to have wong treat guests at our ION orchard shop in singapore to a chocolate art demonstration, unveiling painted bonbons and more surprises after guests worked up an appetite shopping chocolate-bar clutches and other closet confections from our fall collection.

for all of our friends and family outside of singapore, janice has a treat for you, too: her secret recipe for chilli chocolate mousse.
