Now that 2017 is drawing to a close, we’re looking forward to our plans for 2018 – that includes all the new and exciting beauty products launching next month in January! We have exciting new product lines from some of our favourite brands like Aprilskin, THREE, 3INA, and Chanel!
1. La Prairie Platinum Rare Cellular Night Elixir
La Prairie’s claim to fame is the rejuvenating Cellular Therapy developed by its founder Dr Paul Niehans, and their latest Night Elixir draws its inspiration from that.
It claims to “work overnight to reawaken and transform skin”, so one drop at night will give you “newborn skin by morning”. With a price tag like that, it literally has to contain magic in a bottle.
La Prairie Platinum Rare Cellular Night Elixir retails for SGD1,890 (20ml) from January 2018 at all La Prairie counters.
2. L’Occitane x Visionsave
Don’t turn a blind eye to avoidable blindness. That’s L’Occitane’s motto for their yearly charity initiative #RaceForVisionSG. With 4 out of 5 cases of blindness being preventable, we believe this cause is worth supporting.
In January 2018, L’Occitane will be collaborating with VisionSave to raise funds for the needy blind. The Charity Gift Set retails at an affordable price, and 100% of its proceeds will be donated to VisionSave.
What’s more, with every purchase of the Charity Gift Set, you can stand a chance to win the L’Occitane Most Loved Hamper with products worth more than SGD500! We can’t think of a more win-win situation for everyone.
L’Occitane Charity Gift Set retails for SGD10 from 15 January 2018 in stores and online.
3. 3INA The Longwear Lipstick
For the confident, positive woman that doesn’t believe in boundaries, 3INA fits right in to make you bold, brave, and beautiful. Pronounce ‘mee-nah‘, the European brand recently launched in Singapore in late October this year.
Say hello to their new range of The Longwear Lipstick, offering ten vivid and highly pigmented shades that hydrate your lips, leaving a velvety-soft finish.
Matte or metallic, muted or deep, the shade range of The Longwear Lipstick is sure to provide an affordable and versatile option to add to your vanity table and beauty pouch!
3INA The Longwear Lipstick retails for SGD16 each from January 2018 at 3INA ION, Junction 8, and Tampines Mall.
4. THREE Lyrical Lip Bloom
Inspired by Tantric philosophy, THREE’s latest makeup line aims to draw on the energy from the seven Chakras to bring out that rosiness of freshly bloomed flowers on your facial features.
The all-new Lyrical Lip Bloom range boasts THREE’s new and exclusive “raw matte” texture. The aim of these matte-type glosses (we know that sounds paradoxical) is to enhance the natural pink tone of your lips, so you look radiant and healthy throughout.
THREE Lyrical Lip Bloom series retails for SGD48 each (7 shades available) from 26 January 2018 at THREE counters in Tangs Plaza Level 4 and Takashimaya Department Store.
5. Albion Excia Embeage Le Serum
Just take a look at the backstory behind this product: the Albion Excia Embeage Le Serum is a ground-breaking technology that claims to be able to switch on the longevity gene in skin cells, morphing them into “Super Revitalising Ageless Cells”.
Albion Excia Embeage Le Serum retails for SGD548 from 1 January 2018 at Albion counters in Takashimaya Department Store Level 1 and Metro Centrepoint Level 1.
6. Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Full Coverage Concealer
At this point, we’re willing to bet that you would’ve heard some whispers about the amazing staying power that the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray can give to your makeup.
We were celebrating when we heard that Urban Decay will be adding the All Nighter Concealer to the range, and boy, did the beauty YouTubers have a field day when it was finally released.
It’s been hailed as one of the newest holy grails in makeup with its ultra-pigmented and blendable formula, which is also waterproof to ensure long lasting wear.
Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Full Coverage Concealer retails for SGD40 each (8 shades available) from 19 January 2018 onwards at Sephora and Urban Decay stores.
7. RMK W Water Eyes Color Ink
We’re so used to the bold, hard-hitting eyeshadow colours that have been all over town recently that we find RMK’s pastel water colour-inspired eyeshadow collection a breath of fresh air.
Best part? It’s a dual-ended liquid eyeshadow, with one head for a matte look and the other for a pearlescent finish. The permutations are endless with these easily blendable water-based formulas.
RMK W Water Eyes Color Ink retails for SGD58 each (10 shades available) from January 2018 onwards at RMK counters in Isetan Scotts and Serangoon Central.
8. Chanel Les 9 Ombres Palette Edition No. 1: Affresco
Inspired by her home town of Naples, Chanel Global Creative Makeup and Color Designer Lucia Pica created the all-new Neapolis collection for Spring/Summer 2018. Revisit the magical ‘new city’ with the collection’s palette of green, yellow, gold, red, and black.
Lucia Pica describes the new and limited edition Les 9 Ombres eyeshadow palette in No 1: Affresco, “All the elements of Naples are here.” From bright green, to mink brown, to dark rusty red, the colours on this palette offers a visual experience that invokes the spirit of Naples like never before.
Chanel Les 9 Ombres Palette Edition No. 1: Affresco retails for SGD139 exclusively at the Chanel Fragrance and Beauty Boutique in ION Orchard.
9. SK-II R.N.A. Power Airy Milky Lotion
It’s SK-II R.N.A. Power like you’ve never seen before. With SK-II’s signature ingredient, Pitera, combined with their Radical New Age Complex, R.N.A. Power Airy Milky Lotion is said to provide long-lasting hydration and anti-ageing boosts, all in one.
It sits well under makeup too, since the lotion is said to form an “even, non-sticky base”, a godsend for those of us with oily skin.
SK-II R.N.A. Power Airy Milky Lotion retails for SGD149 (50g) and SGD228 (80g) from January 2018 onwards at all SK-II counters.
