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.

Rouge Dior

New year, new look. The cult-favourite is now housed in a refillable case embellished with a silver trim and boasting a sleek 'CD' logo. Beyond that, its comprehensive shade range is also available in two new finishes: an extra matte velvet as well as metallic. A lipstick for all occasions, indeed. For those new to the range, we recommend you try your hand at iconic hues such as 999 Velvet, 100 Nude Look, 080 Red Smile, and 525 Chérie.


M.A.C. Cosmetics Powder Kiss Liquid Lip

Speaking of revamped classics, it seems M.A.C. is in on the game as well with the addition of nine new shades within the Powder Kiss Liquid Lip family. Its long-wear and hydration capabilities remain unchanged, as does its mousse-like texture that blurs out imperfections seamlessly. You can, however, branch out from conventional picks and try something in blue (Good Jeans) or mauve (Ferosh!).


Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution and K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipsticks

Then there's the CNY limited edition goods. This translates to three new lip colours on CT's part: a matte brick-red (Rose Wish); matte cherry red (Lucky Cherry); and a satin rusty rose (Sweet Blossom). No word yet as to how long they'll be available for, though we can say for sure that the red-and-gold studded encasing is probably going to be an auspicious hit for the upcoming Lunar New Year festivities.


Estée Lauder Pure Colour Illuminating Shine

You'll get those heads turning every time you shed that mask with these bad boys in your arsenal. Its gleaming, high-shine finish is striking enough, made especially so when paired with its bold pigment that instantly sculpts, plumps, and adds dimension to any pout. Choose between ten shades that varies from vibrant coral to brick red.


Tom Ford Beauty Traceless Soft Matte Foundation

This foundation release is definitely in adherence with the makeup minimalism trend we've witnessed in 2020 — and foresee continuing in 2021. Think a matte, second-skin finish that weighs next to nothing on your mien; an ultra-blendable and -buildable formula infused with hyaluronic acid to boost your complexion's precious moisture barrier. Take your pick between the 10 available shades.
