Known for her lavish costumes and East-meets-West performances, Sukki Singapora is our first ever burlesque performer and has contributed greatly to raising awareness of burlesque locally. Besides, she often takes to the stage with dramatic makeup and is a colour chameleon when it comes to her hair. So it should come as no surprise that she’s teamed up with LASplash Cosmetics to create a lip colour collection that reflects her signature look. Here are five things you need to know about her and the collection:

#1: She put on a legal burlesque show in Singapore
She was the first woman to perform a full legal burlesque show in Singapore in January 2015 after four years of campaigning.

#2: She supports vulnerable women
She’s an ambassador of The Sharan Project, a UK-based charity which provides support and advice to South Asian women who have left home.

#3: The lip colour collection has both matte and glossy textures
Consisting of six colours (three mattes and three glossy), this tightly-edited but comprehensive collection includes shades like Sukki’s signature reds, gold and a punchy pink.
