Gather ’round, shopaholics and beauty addicts: the month of February is almost over, and it has left us with many tempting beauty launches.
From THEFACESHOP’s vibrant new makeup line fmgt, to Chanel’s freshly launched makeup line in celebration of Spring, we’ve rounded up the coolest products to add to your cart so you don’t get FOMO (fear of missing out) when you see these all over your feed.
1. Lush’s perfume collection
If you’re a fan of the cruelty-free brand’s bath products, you’ll be glad to hear that Lush has brought the rest of their exclusive fragrances to our sunny island! In addition to Lush Singapore’s existing perfume collection, fan-favourite fragrances such as Rose Jam, the sweet rose-and-geranium scent, and Love, a bewitching perfume with notes of fresh bergamot and ylangylang, are also now available at Lush Singapore stores.
These retail at all five Lush stores in Singapore, starting at SGD45 per 30ml bottle. View the full collection of launches at Lush’s website here.
2. Clarins Plant Gold- L’Or de Plantes
Transform your home into a Clarins spa in an instant with a new addition to their famed “Aromaphytocare” range: their first ever oil-emulsion L’Or de Plantes! A product of 100% natural origin, their newest creation blends their iconic Blue Orchard Treatment Oil with a skin-loving emulsion for a fragrant skincare product that is lightweight and comfortable on the skin.
This oil-emulsion is anti-oxidant and fatty acid rich from the Virgin hazelnut, macadamia, almond and grape seed oils; together, these ingredients deeply nourish and soften dull and tired skin, leaving it feeling supple and smooth.
Available at Clarins counters and on Clarins’ website, at SGD110 for 35ml.
3. Tom Ford Rose Prick EDP
What’s better than a rose-scented perfume? A perfume with three precious species of roses, of course! Inspired by his personal rose garden, luxury designer Tom Ford’s newest fragrance is as dangerous as it is romantic: spicy Sichuan pepper and turmeric to add a unique twist to the heady floral notes, as well as gourmand vanilla, caramel and exotic bitter patchouli to perfectly balance this complex, daring scent.
From 6 March 2020, get this opulent fragrance at SGD473 for 50ml at Sephora.sg or at Marina Bay Sands #B1-128, TANGS at Tang Plaza, Takashimaya, Robinsons Raffles City.
4. Dior Addict Stellar Halo Shine and Stellar Gloss
Matte lips are out, and glossy lips are back in. Stay on top of the trend in style with Dior’s new Stellar Halo Shine lipsticks in 15 shades, with a shimmery star in the middle to give your lips a extra boost of shine. Or, if you’re a gloss addict like us, try their Stellar Gloss in 12 shades that hydrates, conditions and protects with aloe vera, beeswax and cranberry oil, while giving your lips a mirror-like shine.
Available at all Dior counters islandwide from 1 March 2020, at SGD52 each for both Stellar Halo Shine and Gloss.
5. Acqua di Parma Signatures of the Sun fragrances
With more than 100 years of practice, Aqua di Parma has mastered the art of perfumery. Taking inspiration from Asian flowers, camelias and sakuras, two new, timeless fragrances were created in celebration of Spring.
Camelia is said to be lively and radiantly oriental, with bergamot, mandarin and pink pepper notes to accent the regal flower, while Sakura is a softer, dreamy floral fragrance that features the long-lasting perfume of the blossom, emphasised by jasmine, and grounded by earthy musk.
They retail at Takashimaya, Robinsons The Heeren, escentials Paragon, escentials Tangs and escentials ION, starting at SGD345 for 100ml. Available from April 2020.
6. Caudalie Purifying Gel Cleanser
Introducing a lifesaver for sensitive and acne-prone skin: Caudelie’s soap and sulfate-free Vinopure Purifying Gel Cleanser. Without drying the skin, the cleanser’s natural ingredients like redness-reducing grape water and hydrating organic rose water thoroughly cleanses the pores and removes excess sebum, while minimising pores for photo-ready skin without editing or filters!
Available in all Sephora stores and on Sephora.sg at SGD33.
7. La Prairie White Caviar Eye Extraordinaire
Your under-eye area is in for a real treat with this rich eye cream, designed by experts to counteract signs of ageing, dulling and pigmentation, with the concept of shape, reflection, and light. Infused with luxurious ingredients including golden caviar to encourage collagen production, and Lumidose molecules to prevent excess pigmentation, this product is practically an eight-hour-sleep in a jar.
Get the White Caviar Eye Extraordinaire at all La Prairie counters at SGD860 per jar.
8. fmgt‘s makeup collection
After undergoing a rebranding exercise, Korean cosmetic brand THEFACESHOP has relaunched their awaited makeup under fmgt (fashion makeup group), which allows any beauty fanatic to hop on the latest beauty trends without breaking the bank.
The new collection features products like the Ink Lasting Foundation Glow (SGD34) which adheres to the skin for a long lasting and natural finish, the Rouge Power Matte (SGD22), a comfortable, pigment-rich matte lipstick, and the Monocube eyeshadows (SGD8.80) in 50 different shades and three finishes (matte, shimmer, and glitter), with high pigment and lasting power.
We’re the most excited about the Hydro Cushion Blusher (SGD25) that will give the popular Glossier Cloud Paint a run for its money. It offers a watercolour-like flush without looking like you’re trying too hard. Plus, it’s convenient for a quick pop of colour on the go without any mess!
Shop these products at THEFACESHOP outlets in Singapore.
9. Chantecaille Spring Collection 2020
If you’re not already convinced by the gorgeous packaging featuring the free-sprited hummingbird, Chantecaille’s newest collection is created in partnership with the Amazon Conservation Team in their efforts to help the female elders and healers regain ownership of Andes, Amazon. The line features the Lip Chic (SGD80), a plumping lipstick and gloss hybrid in four stunning shades, and two velvety Hummingbird Eye Quartets (SGD123) in Warm and Cool shades to best suit your skin tone.
The star of the show for us remains the limited edition Perfect Blur Finishing Powder (SGD137), which is housed in a vibrant orange compact with a hummingbird in flight. This soft-focus powder is invisible and weightless on the skin, blurring minor imperfections like visible pores and fine lines with tiny, optically correcting pearls for a naturally radiant look.
Launches at Takashimaya D.S. on 1 March 2020.
10. Neutrogena Hydro Boost collection
Who says quality skincare has to be expensive? With Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost collection, you can have hydrated and healthy skin without burning a hole in your pocket!
Made in Korea, Neutrogena has launched an upgraded Hydro Boost Water Gel (SGD21.50) that now comes with a patented prebiotic technology for 72 hour-long hydration, and encourages hyaluronic acid production within the skin, yet applies comfortably. Finish off your routine with their new Hydro Boost 3D Sleeping Mask (SGD27.90) that firms, hydrates, and smooths your skin.
Available at Guardian and Watsons from 1 March 2020.
11. Fenty Beauty new Gloss Bomb shades
Good news, Fenty Beauty fans: the brand is releasing three fresh shades of the popular gloss line! The Gloss Bomb is a hot favourite amongst lip gloss fans for its smooth, non-sticky application with its large wand, mirror-like shine, as well as an addictive peach-vanilla scent.
The line now features a no-fuss clear lip gloss, Glass Slipper, a sweet shimmery pink, $weet Mouth, and a decadent chocolate brown shade, Hot Chocolit, that’d look amazing on darker skin tones. Our favourite lip gloss now in more colours – sweet!

12. Chanel LE BLANC Rosy Light Drops
For healthy and glowing skin all day, everyday, try Chanel’s new LE BLANC Rosy Light Drops. This sheer, rosy highlighting fluid is meant to be used on top of foundation for an illuminated complexion, but it is more versatile than you think.
Our tip? Mix a few drops of the highlighting liquid with your favourite foundation, BB, or even CC cream for an even and quick application daily, or simply blend this onto the high points of your face (nose bridge, forehead, cheekbones, and chin) for a natural and subtle glow.
