The start of the year comes with a host of brand launches and new collections that we cannot be more excited about. But after Christmas and New Year, your wallet is probably still in recovery mode. That’s why we have curated only the most impressive new releases from beauty and wellness brands in January so you can decide for yourself whether to make the purchase.
1. YSL Beauté Blooming Crush Collection
YSL Beauté is welcoming the new year with a brand new spring/summer launch called Blooming Crush and we can’t be more excited! Specifically created for the free-spirited modern woman, the Blooming Crush collection will bring you the colourful and dynamic vibes of spring with products including the Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils The Curler Sparkling Topcoat (SGD55), the Rouge Volupté Shine lipsticks (4 new shades) (SGD52), the Vernis À Lèvres Vinyl Cream lip stains (2 new shades) (SGD52) and the La Laque Couture nail polishes (2 new shades) (SGD40).
If you have been a fan of the Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils The Curler, the Sparkling Topcoat will help boost the curling power of the mascara even further while adding a dazzling spark to your eyes.
Meanwhile, the two new shades of the Vernis À Lèvres Vinyl Cream lip stains – No 58 Orange Morning Chill and No 59 Coral Rose – will give you those luscious glossy lips that are so spring-appropriate. With the finish of a lip gloss and the staying power of a lip stain, the Vernis À Lèvres Vinyl Cream will be your go-to lippie all season long!

2. THREE 10th anniversary makeup collection
To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Japanese beauty brand THREE is releasing a limited makeup collection including three Autumn Glow Freedom face palettes, two Celebration Liberation palettes, as well as two limited edition shades of the iconic Lyrical Lip Ami.
Out of these products, the two Celebration Liberation palettes definitely caught our eyes the most. Each palette contains all the colour makeup you will need for a complete look: lip colours, eye shadows, a
blusher, a highlighter and a contour shade. It even comes with a set of three burgundy-coloured brushes and a compact pouch to keep all your makeup on the go.
The two versions of the Celebration Liberation Palette are Jubilee Me, which contains more neutral shades for natural, everyday looks, and Fall Fresco, which has a more dramatic, smoky vibe, perfect for those sultry night looks.
All products in the 10th Anniversary Makeup Collection are available at THREE counters at TANGS and Takashimaya S.C..

6. Dior L’Or De Vie La Cure – 2018 Vintage
The limited, yearly edition L’Or De Vie La Cure is back with the 2018 Vintage made with Yquem marc – grape pulp extracts – that is twice as concentrated as previous years’ editions. Yquem marc helps boost collagen production in the cells, which brings about incredible anti-ageing benefits such as smoother skin, less noticeable wrinkles and fine lines, and a more radiant complexion.
The new and improved formula contains highly concentrated antioxidant polyphenol and active molecules to penetrate deeply into the skin and optimise the product’s benefits.
Priced at SGD3400, each set of the L’Or De Vie La Cure – 2018 Vintage comes in a luxurious numbered case with three bottles, available at selected Dior counters.
