Shopping at retail stores may not be possible at the moment, but now that we have the luxury of time at home, we know that online retail therapy can be just as sweet.
If you’re looking for the freshest beauty releases on the market to amp up your skincare regime or boost your makeup game, we’ve picked out 12 such products for you. With everything from new additions to Hourglass’s Veil line, to Fenty Beauty’s vibrant and versatile Cheeks Out cream blushes, you know that it’s time to get your credit card ready.
Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum
Loyal fans of Fresh’s Rose skincare line, good news. The brand’s newest release is a lightweight oil-in-serum hybrid perfect for all skin types, leaving it dewy, hydrated, and refreshed without any stickiness or residue. Despite its lightweight, it penetrates the skin layers to moisturise skin that has been dried out from constant exposure to air-conditioning.
Retails on Sephora for SGD95 from 26 May, at fresh boutiques islandwide (ION B3-46 and Raffles City 01-43, JEM Beauty Kitchen 02-33), Takashimaya, and Sephora stores from 18 June.
Clarins Body Partner Stretch Mark Expert
Stretch marks are a common problem among many mothers and mothers-to-be and Clarins is one of the most popular brands many women turn to for solutions. In a convenient and hygienic pump tube, this pregnant women-approved formula is created through extensive research in Clarins Laboratories with minimal, naturally derived ingredients so it’s safe for you and your skin, while effectively targeting your stretch mark concerns.
Retails for SGD98 on Clarins’ site, and at all Clarins boutiques and counters subsequently.
Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush and Bronzer
Like its cheeky name, Fenty Beauty’s newest releases are available in 10 vibrant blush shades (including a daring lilac!) and seven inclusive bronzer shades. Its creamy formula can be blended on or under the apples of the cheeks as well as for a quick flush of lively colour – something we especially need now that we’re spending a lot of time indoors. Lightweight and sweat-resistant, these products are going to be your favourites during and after the Circuit Breaker.
Lucido-L Argan Rich Oil
Convenience is always a plus in beauty – if you don’t have time for the 10-step Korean haircare routine, try Lucido-L’s two-step solution instead! Consisting of an essence and a sheer gloss component, these can be used separately or together for a luxurious and glossy mane by taming and smoothing frizzy hair. There’s no better time than when you’re staying home more to care for your hair – this is definitely a pampering treat your tresses needs.
Available at major drugstores like Guardian at SGD16.90.

They’ve also added the Soft Focus Setting Spray (SGD80) to the line. This acts as a beauty filter on your face all day, setting makeup for up to 24 hours while blurring imperfections and hydrating skin.
Sisley Black Rose Eye Contour Fluid
A collaboration between Sisley and renowned French facialist Marie Depoulain, the Black Rose Eye Contour Fluid contains black rose and vitamin E to refine and smooth skin to banish wrinkles and tighten skin.

AHC Peony Bright line
If you’ve been doing skincare religiously but still see no improvement, the main culprit may be the blue light emitting from your electronic devices!
