New beauty products hit the market every month, with the eager hands of makeup enthusiasts reaching for these new releases and comparing them to their go-to staples on their vanity.
For most of 2019, we saw a myriad of innovative products hit the shelves – like local brand Feisty Chick’s winged liner which allowed you to directly stamp an already perfect wing onto the corner of your eyes, a miracle product for those struggling to achieve that perfect cat eye.
With the beauty products of 2019 aimed at making our morning makeup routine that little bit easier, the makeup trends of 2020 changed gear (for the better, if you ask us).
Think pastel eyeshadow with a touch of glitter, coloured liners and metallic lips to top it all off. So, in keeping with the new trends, these exciting beauty products to get your hands on in March will definitely be well-loved additions to your family of makeup and skincare.
With coloured lids becoming a big yes this month, we can’t help but fall head over heels with Colourpop’s new collaboration with fan-favourite Japanese show Sailor Moon. Their collab consists of blushes, lippies and glitter gels, but our pick is definitely the 12-pan eyeshadow palette.
Try a violet smoky eye look with the purples in the palette by adding the shimmery purple shade with a wet brush to your inner corners for brighter lids and the darker purple to your outer corners for a smooth colour transition. We also love the versatile browns added to the palette – they are the perfect shades to blend into your crease to effortlessly pull the look together.
P.S. Even though Colourpop is an American-based brand, they ship to Singapore! Just gather a few girlfriends, load up the cart with your purchases and when you hit $50USD, international shipping is free.
Well, the brand has just released five new shades to add to the collection and we’re definitely obsessed. Our favourite, however, is this bright red glittery shade – a more dramatic and unexpected take on the usual classic red. Pair this lippie with a smoky eye and a light blush so your lips remain the star of your makeup look on a date night out.
The new shades of the Tom Ford Beauty Lip Spark Collection aren’t available online on Sephora yet. Visit the Tom Ford Beauty boutiques to purchase the new shades.
We love the new serum by Estée Lauder – its concentrated formula ensures that the dark spots on your skin are visibly reduced to reveal brighter, more hydrated skin. Infused with anti-ageing ingredients, this serum is perfect for those who are looking to refine skin and prevent future signs of ageing. Plus, the smooth, lightweight texture makes it perfect for both AM and PM use.
The New Re-Nutriv Ultimate Radiant White Brightening Youth Collection is now available at selected Estée Lauder stores nationwide.
Glitter is a huge makeup trend this year, and if you’re looking to hop onto the bandwagon without being too dramatic, a subtle glitter eyeliner should do the trick. Rihanna’s makeup line Fenty Beauty’s pencil eyeliner collection has tons of shimmery colours, but our favourite is this violet shade that’ll go with any eye look.
This paraben- and sulphate-free eyeliner is formulated to be long-wearing and waterproof, so no midday touch-ups will be needed. Plus, it’s a pencil liner – making it smoother, creamier and easier to use than a felt tip. Remember to top it off with a few coats of mascara to show you mean business.
Looking to switch up your everyday makeup look? Start with the lips: instead of the usual nude or red lipstick, why not try a coral shade like this one from K-beauty brand Hera? This lightweight lippie transforms to a matte finish and provides a cool refreshing feel to your lips upon application.
It’s also highly pigmented with the colour lasting up to 8 hours, which means it’ll last through copious cups of coffee at the office. Remember to give your lips a good scrub before application so the lip tint glides on smoothly and stays all day.
Anastasia Beverly Hills has always been known for their stunning eyeshadow palettes that always seem to make waves in the beauty community. The Norvina, Soft Glam and Modern Renaissance palettes are just a few of the many that have become staples when creating glam eye looks for night out.
Add one more to the must-have list: their new Amrezy eyeshadow palette, a 16-pan palette that’s versatile enough to achieve countless looks to easily transition from day to night. We’re not sure about you, but the bright azure blue, the shimmery gold and the glittery baby pink in the palette definitely got our attention. We also love how there’s an adequate number of brown shades in the palette for an easy blend on the crease for an effortless light smoky eye.
If you love collecting perfumes and fragrances, you’ve probably heard of the Chanel Chance Eau de Parfum spray that’s been flying off the shelves since its release 2002. Now, a set of four fragrance tubes disguised to look like pencils from the Chanel Chance line are about to be released in mid-March.
These solid, balm-like perfumes will glide directly onto your skin, leaving a fragrance that will last all day. The four scents include Chance, Chance Eau Fraîche, Chance Eau Tendre and Chance Eau Vive – split them among your girlfriends or keep them all as adorable additions to your perfume collection. Trust us, these floral scents are sure to make waves at the next party you attend.
The limited edition Chanel Chance Fragrance Pencils will be available at Chanel’s Beauty Boutique at ION Orchard from 14 March 2020.
This brand new serum stick from Tatcha is a great alternative to your usual serums that might otherwise leave a sticky residue onto your hands and skin after application. Targeting skin concerns like dryness, ageing and visible fine lines and wrinkles, this hardworking serum stick glides onto your problem areas, allowing for easy, direct and concentrated application.
Pop it under your makeup as an alternative to primer so your foundation blends smoothly onto the skin without emphasising your fine lines and wrinkles. And since it’s formulated without sulphates, parabens or synthetic fragrances, you’ll achieve a hydrated and revitalised complexion without worrying about damaging your skin.
