Following the success of its fragrance line, Louis Vuitton will be launching a new perfume for men: the Louis Vuitton Météore. Dedicated to the emotions that men experience while travelling, including their taste for adventure and escape, this fragrance is blended by the House’s Master Perfumer, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud. Powered by a blend of spices including peppers, Guatemalan cardamom, and Indonesian nutmeg, the spices are contrasted by piercing citrus notes and finished off with sharp and earthy Java vetiver.
The Louis Vuitton Météore fragrance is now available in stores and online.
On paper, the new Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing & Dark Circle-Diminishing Vitamin C Eye Serum looks just about set to fix any of your eye skincare concerns. This is all thanks to the trio of powerful ingredients that are powering the eye serum: 10% pure Vitamin C, a Tri Peptide Complex, and hyaluronic acid. We’ve previously waxed lyrical on how these different ingredients aim to target specific problems around the eye area, and we’re pretty sure this new eye serum will be a holy grail product to alleviate fine lines, dark circles, and eyebags.
The Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing & Dark Circle-Diminishing Vitamin C Eye Serum is now available in stores and online.
After debuting the iconic Chanel Coco Mademoiselle in 2001, Chanel’s in-house Perfumer Creator Olivier Poldge is recreating the scent in a lighter and more delicate version, designed to be worn at night. The Chanel Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée has been reimagined like a watercolour with toned down wood accords to emphasise the freshness of the orange notes, while soft floral accords are blended with jasmine absolute and rose petals with white musk notes. It’s still true to the original Coco Mademoiselle scent, but more confident yet delicate.
The Chanel Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée is now available at all Chanel Fragrance & Beauty Boutiques and Counters at leading departmental stores.
If you’re in the market for a lightweight and calming yet hydrating moisturiser, look no further than Skin Regimen’s latest release, the Hydra Fluid. It’s especially suitable for oily and combination skin types, formulated with Longevity Complex, which is a mix of organic superfood extracts and high-tech molecules to act against the effects of stress and ageing on the skin. It also contains Tasmanian Pepper Extract to strengthen skin’s capillaries and soothes at the same time. As with the rest of Skin Regimen’s products, the Hydra Fluid has 93% natural-origin ingredients with no nasties.
The Skin Regimen Hydra Fluid is now available at the Skin Regimen store in 1 Utama Shopping Centre.
Sulwhasoo is taking self-care to a new level with a new range of masks comprising reformulations of old favourites and introduction of new products. We start off with the reformulated Clarifying Mask, a peel-off mask that removes dead skin and impurities. Suitable for all skin types, the mask contains Solomon’s Seal powder for antioxidant properties and Honeysuckle extract to promote cell turnover. Next is the all-new Herbal Clay Purifying Mask powered by Muan Clay and “Korean Traditional Herb Complex” to deep-cleanse skin while soothing skin from inflammation and alleviating acne.
Also new is the White Ginseng Radiance Refining Mask, which is suitable to use while in the shower. The gold gel texture contains white ginseng which will help exfoliate skin, revealing a more radiant skin after. Finally, Sulwhasoo has something you can leave on for the entire night: the Overnight Vitalizing Mask. The overnight mask contains Nutritive Red Elixir to give skin intensive moisture and nutrients to strengthen the skin’s natural protective barrier. It also has Sulwhasoo’s signature ginseng scent, which is sure to calm your senses.
Sulwhasoo’s latest mask range is now available at all Sulwhasoo stores and counters nationwide.
Begone, drying matte makeup. M.A.C is bringing back the matte with a soft-focus, hydrating matte range: Powder Kiss. Consisting of two products in a wide range of colours, the Powder Kiss Liquid Lipcolour and Powder Kiss Eye Shadow needs to be part of your makeup collection. The Liquid Lipcolour has a plush, mousse-like formula with highly-pigmented colour (as expected of M.A.C). It has a blend of powders and emollient properties for added flexibility and wear. On the other hand, the Eye Shadow is a matte-finish eye shadow with a velvety formula, creating a soft diffused look — almost like a second skin.
The M.A.C Powder Kiss range is now available at all M.A.C stores and online.
We love our artisanal perfumes, and Gucci is ready to deliver with two additions to its Alchemist’s Garden collection — A Midnight Stroll and A Chant for the Nymph. With magical names like these, how can one resist? Encased in lacquered glass bottles with gold accents, these look as gorgeous as they smell. Let’s explore A Midnight Stroll, a bold fragrance encased in black lacquered glass. As evident as its name, the scent pays homage to the allure of the night with a cocktail of aromatic incense and intensely smoky Cade wood and fresh Cypress.
On the other end of the spectrum, we have A Chant for the Nymph, an ode to tropical forests. Expect heady florals of frangipani, ylang-ylang and Tiare flower, warmed by a base of soft vanilla.
The Gucci The Alchemist’s Garden Luxury Collection is now available in the Gucci Beauty store in Suria KLCC.
We’re always happy when Fenty Beauty announces new drops. This time around, the brand is releasing three new shades for the Pro Kiss’r Luscious Lip Balm and also two additions to the Snap Shadows eyeshadow palette.
The Pro Kiss’r Luscious Lip Balm now comes in three extra shades of nude that will flatter all skin tones: Cocoa Drizzle (sheer chocolate), Latte Lips (sheer neutral pink), and Pinch Me (sheer pink). The lip balms come with a doe-foot applicator and are enriched with shea and mango seed butters, and comes with a light peach-vanilla scent.
If you loved the Snap Shadows eyeshadow palette, then you’ll definitely need to add these two shades to your collection. 9-Wine (a rich, neutral burgundy) and 10-Money (forest green) are the shades to add to the already diverse collection. We love how you can snap two of these together to add depth to your look, especially when on the go.
The new Fenty Beauty products are now available in Sephora and online.
The iconic L’Occitane Immortelle Divine is back and better than ever, this time with a new formula thanks to the Super Green Technology harnessing the Immortelle Super Extract, a 100% natural-origin alternative to synthetic retinol. This natural alternative does the same job of enhancing skin volume and supporting the skin’s building blocks while being natural and gentle.
This reformulation will be available in the Immortelle Divine range including the Activating Essence, Divine Eye Balm, Divine Serum, Divine Youth Oil, and Divine Cream.
Laura Mercier’s iconic and best-selling translucent loose setting powder is finally available in a new shade: Translucent Honey. This third shade joins the lineup of Normal and Medium Deep. Honey is perfect for medium skin tone, and yes — it’s inspired by the trending “banana” powder beloved by many makeup artists.
The Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder in Honey is now available in all Laura Mercier retail outlets.
