The latest in makeup and skincare in April 2022:
Hermès Plein Air
The fourth chapter of Hermès Beauty is here, marking the house’s official entry into complexion makeup. Plein Air adopts a natural approach to skin, laying the foundation with a complexion balm, two finishing powders as well as accessories of elevated blotting papers and a powder brush. Instead of concealing flaws, it embraces the skin’s natural texture and traits through invigorating, breathable formulations.
Aesop Exalted Eye Serum
The thin skin around the eyes requires special care. Aesop’s new Exalted Eye Serum nourishes the area with a blend of vitamins and humectants that better retain moisture within the cells. Its warm, woody and resinous scent, coupled with its soothing, non-greasy finish, makes application a soothing experience.
Chanel Rouge Coco Baume
Treat your lips like your skin with Chanel’s Rouge Coco Baume, which contains Olive Oleoactive, a house-exclusive ingredient that provides all-day protection. The smooth formula glides over lips in a sheer wash that hydrates through shea butter and plant waxes. It’s available in a range of colours, as well as a pearlescent white shade.
Kenzo Homme Eau De Toilette Intense
The bamboo takes centre stage with the new Kenzo Homme Eau De Toilette Intense. In support of ecological designer Orin Hardy’s Bamboo U project, the fragrance is a reminder to reconnect with nature. The flacon’s shape reflects the plant’s strength and flexibility, while the scent is a fresh concoction of marine accords, pink peppercorn, warm fig wood and sandalwood. Think skin kissed by the sea and the sun.
Dior Spring 2022
Spring at Dior sees minerals as the primary inspiration for a collection that spotlights shimmering, pastel and opalescent shades. The words “mineral” and “glow” are etched in the 3 Couleurs Tri(O)blique eyeshadow palettes, which are available in coral and rose. Give skin a radiant finish with the Dior Forever Cushion Powder in lavender pink, and complement the look with a slick of the Dior Stick Glow on the cheekbones as well as a swipe of the Dior Addict Lip Glow on lips.
Los Angeles-based Orcé Cosmetics has launched at Tangs Singapore. The make-up brand celebrates Asian skin tones through base make-up such as the Come Closer Skin Perfecting Serum-Foundation, which will soon see 12 new additions to its current six-shade range. The brand’s setting powder has a dome-shaped case to prevent spillage as you swirl your brush.
Givenchy Prisme Libre Skin-Caring Matte Foundation
Givenchy adds the Skin-Caring Matte foundation to its Prisme Libre line. The skincare-infused formula blurs imperfections and smooths texture, while caring for the complexion. Nasturtium extract allows skin cells to oxygenate, maintaining skin radiance, while emollients keep skin hydrated. For a natural finish, use tapping motions to allow the formula to blend into skin.
Nudestix NudeGold Glam Festival Palette
All that glitters is gold with the new NudeGold Glam Festival Palette. The six-piece kit comprises summer shades for glistening golds on the eyes and lips. The four shades of the Magnetic Luminous Eye Color include the new Dew Wap, a luminous nude-champagne gold. Finish the look with the Magnetic Matte Lip Color, which can also be applied on the cheeks, and lock in moisture with the Lip Glace.
The latest iteration of the Burberry Her collection features a pistachio green bottle to reflect its new pear notes.The peony scent mingles with the fruit alongside gentle notes of honeysuckle and rose. A woody base adds a cosy yet sultry layer to the feminine fragrance.
Ole Henriksen Strength Trainer Peptide Boost Moisturizer
Ole Henriksen introduces the first moisturiser in the brand’s new Strength collection. The Strength Trainer Peptide Boost Moisturizer contains eight amino acids and powerful peptides to build skin’s resiliency and strength, while ceramides bind moisture to skin’s layers. The formula applies in rich yet light layers that leave a rosy glow on skin.
Tom Ford Bitter Peach
Tom Ford’s Bitter Peach make-up collection translates the namesake perfume’s nectar-filled concoction into warm, bronze shades on the packaging and in the product. The Eye Color Quad in Suspicion features four shimmering colours including rose gold, amber and deep bronze. The warm orange hue of the flacon is also mirrored on the Lip Colour Matte lipstick tubes and Cushion Compact case.
