Add to cart
You might track the latest makeup releases like it's your job (technically it's ours), but even the most thorough devotees are prone to slip-ups. Whether it's missing out on a limited edition mascara drop or purchasing a primer that is more dud than stud, we get it — and are here to help. In the interest of saving you time, money, and disappointment, we've gathered the most hyped new releases of the month for your viewing (and buying) pleasure. Stay tuned for regular updates — and ready the plastic.
We're still hankering over a Birkin, but in the meantime, there's no harm in soothing the sting with a lipstick (or two) from the Rouge Hermès range. Pick between a matte or satin finish, both of which are available in ten and fourteen hues respectively. Each shade draws inspiration from the brand's legendary silk archives that contain no fewer than 75,000 vibrant, effervescent colours. A status symbol in the making? You know it.
Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette in Pillow Talk
It might seem like we've been talking about this palette forever, but that's because it's only available on our shores this month. The product in question is a 12-pan, pigment-packed palette comprising soft, neutral hues that users can don for work and play ranging from dreamy champagne pink to burnt terracotta. We predict cult-classic standing so be sure to snap it up, stat.
Available 13 February.
Aerin Wild Geranium
2020 might not be off to a fortuitous start, but we trust we can turn things around with positive thinking... and a damned good scent. Aerin has our backs on this one, providing a fresh, whimsy new fragrance that encapsulates the essence of happiness and freedom. Instant ecstasy is out of the question, though we think the combination of joyful narcisse and spicy pink pepper will — at the very least — lift your spirits.
Etude House x Hershley's Collection
It doesn't get any sweeter than this. Everything from eyeshadow palettes to lip tints get the sugary sweet treatment, and each product is housed in packaging reminiscent of the iconic chocolate bar. Don't forget to clue your S.O. in that these are the chocolates you want accompanying your roses this month.
Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer
Rest? RiRi's never heard of her. The beauty mogul has expanded upon her much-adored gloss formulations this February, with three new shades joining the line-up. Meet $weet Mouth (soft pink), Hot Choclit (rich brown), and Glass Slipper (clear), which comes in the product's distinctive non-sticky finish and addictive peach-vanilla scent.
Fenty Beauty Snap Shadows Eyeshadow Palette
The brand has consistently gone above and beyond on all their offerings, so it's hardly surprising that bad gal RiRi has launched not one — but eight variants of their latest eyeshadow palette. What's more, they come in portable, travel-friendly sizes that can literally be snapped together to form a full 12-pan palette. How convenient. Their pigment-packed, buttery-smooth shadow formulations are nothing to scoff at either, all of which are available in matte, shimmer, and glitter finishes.
YSL Beauté Blooming Crush Collection
Fan-favourite formulations are expanded upon and reinvented in YSL Beaute's new range. Take the Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils The Curler, for one, which now includes a sparkling top coat to seal lashes off with a generous helping of shimmer. The highly raved-about Rouge Volupté Shine Lipsticks, Couture Blush, and Vernis À Lèvres are not exempt from expansion efforts either, and are now offered in a wider array of shades.
Available 15 January 2020.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Highlighter in Year of the Rat
The incandescent gold-hued highlighter sports a limited edition print and design this month to commemorate the Year of the Rat. Expect Becca's signature ultra-fine, pigmented pearls that grant a gleaming finish, except pressed in the shape of a mouse and housed within a shimmering gold compact.
Miss Dior Rose N' Roses
Florals take center stage in the latest rendition of Miss Dior, which comprises of Grasse rose and Damascus rose coming together to deliver on a sweet, fresh scent. Its bright, spicy notes are further amplified by bergamot and geranium that settle into skin and stay fresh for hours on end.
Tom Ford Soleil Neige Collection
Tom Ford's latest collection is a visual feast. Inspired by the ethereal radiance of winter, it features eyeshadow quads, lip balms, and body oils encased within snow-white bottles dusted with a faint hint of shimmer.
