New makeup launches in 2019: Exciting products for eyes, lips and face that are hitting the beauty shelves
Ready the plastic
Have you made room on your beauty shelf for the new makeup drops that we're about to introduce to you? No? Then read no further. We kindly suggest you bestow some attention to our stories on downsizing, decluttering and getting rid of old makeup instead, because no one should fall into the black hole of beauty hoarding.
But if you've done The Work and are looking forward to all the oh-so exciting makeup releases on the horizon, welcome! Ahead, you'll find the latest shiny new things we can't wait to get our hands on, from a failproof eyeliner to a 64-strong lipstick collection.
Benefit Roller Liner
What we want in a perfect eyeliner: to be able to withstand sweat, tears and sebum while giving us laser-precise and hyper-saturated flicks. Benefit's new liquid eyeliner promises all of this and will be available online via Benefit's website sometime this month.
Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick
In the world of makeup where new products are dropped on a weekly basis, this is a long time coming. A year after Fenty Beauty by Rihanna launched its MatteMoiselle range of long-lasting, light-as-air matte lipsticks, it's finally expanding the repertoire with another 10 new shades, including three out-there hues (violet, green, and black) amongst wearable pink, red and brown.
Available in stores at Sephora and online.
Chanel Vision d'Asie L'Art du Detail
If you're just as smitten as us with the beach-perfect looks (think luminous complexions, vivid fuchsia lips and glossy lids) on Chanel's spring/summer 2019 show, you'll be thrilled about its new SS19 makeup collection, inspired by global creative makeup and colour director Lucia Pica's photographic expedition to Japan and South Korea. Expect a soft, muted eye palette of gold, red, green, blue and brown; two Baume Essential silky gel highlighters in transparent and peach; and the Rouge Allure Velvet in violet fuchsia, apricot beige, tile red, luminous raspberry and poppy orange.
Available now in Chanel fragrance and beauty boutiques and in all Chanel fragrance and beauty counters from 4 January 2019.
By Terry Lip-Expert
Matte or gloss? It's 2019 — either or is so last year. With By Terry's new Lip Expert lipsticks collection, you get both, in pigment-rich formulas that are said to be long-lasing and comfortable to wear. What we are excited about this new drop is the spread of colours available — 32 in all — nudes, glamorous reds, deep burgundies as well as bold pinks and oranges. Consider us spoilt.
Available online at Sephora from January 2019 and at Sephora stores islandwide, escentials TANGS, escentials Paragon and escentials.com from February 2019.
Kat Von D Beauty Lolita Capsule Collection
Big fan of Kat Von D Beauty's dusty mauve hue named Lolita? (We know; it's the brand's most beloved, fastest-selling and highest-rated shade of all time.) You're in luck, because it's been reinvented in three all-new formats in a capsule collection: an eyeshadow palette, a long-wearing matte eyeliner, and a glimmering liquid lipstick.
Available online at Sephora, the Sephora app, and all Sephora stores from 17 January.
Clarins 4-Colour All-in-One Pen
It's not as new as the rest on this list, but Clarin's limited edition super nifty pen is worth a space in your makeup stash. With a new packaging and two new shade collections, the revolutionary makeup palette features four retractable colours — three for the eyes, one for the lips. Harmony 01 features deep black, blue marine, forest green for eyes and Rosewood for lips; while Harmony 02 consists of deep black, platinum grey and essential brown for eyes and Clarin's signature red for lips.
Available online and at all authorized Clarins counters, including the Clarins boutique at Ion Orchard and Westgate (except for Isetan Scotts, Nex and Katong).
Beyond the Vines Eden Room Mist
Local contemporary womenswear label Beyond the Vines has dipped its toes into the beauty world with a new scent called Eden, inspired by the lushness of the forests. Formulated as a room mist, take the natural outdoors into your space with its calming blend of scotch pine, grapefruit, rosemary, petitgrain and rosewood.
Available at Beyond the Vines, #02-21 Mandarin Gallery.
