Beauty Buys: 7 new beauty releases to covet in March 2020

We’re back to enable you with a stunning array of new beauty releases this March 2020.

With nowhere to travel to thanks to a particular virus, staying put in one place seems pretty boring. Luckily, you can entertain yourself with a spot of shopping. The new releases in March 2020 are pretty varied, from makeup to luxe perfumes, and also skincare. 

One thing we’re particularly excited about is the launch of Hermes Beauty in Malaysia (on March 4th) and with it, a stunning array of lipsticks.

As International Women’s Day falls in March as well, you can do your part by purchasing a product from L’Occitane in conjunction with the celebration. The L’Occitane Foundation will be donating 100% of its profits to finance NGO projects in promoting women’s leadership in Burkina Faso. If that isn’t reason enough to purchase this product, we don’t know what is.

But just in case you’re itching to purchase more items, we’ve rounded up eight of the newest beauty releases this March 2020 below.

Hermes Beauty lipsticks

Hermes is finally foraying into cosmetics with the first products being lipsticks. Rouge Hermes has a total of 24 shades in two finishes: matte and satin. Our favourite part of the lipsticks is that they are refillable – no wastage here for the cases. There is also a lip brush and a universal lip pencil in the mix to ensure your pout is perfect. Hermes Beauty launches in Malaysia on March 4th and is available at Parkson Elite in Pavilion KL.

Benefit Brow Zings Pro Palette

If you’re a fan of the Benefit eyebrow collection, you’ll be happy to know that the Brow Zings Pro Palette is getting a makeover with new formulas and shades. It now comes in two palettes: Light-Medium and Medium-Deep. Inside the palette, you’ll find 12-hour long-wearing brow powders, high-pigment waxes, clear wax, a dual-ended angled brush, and a blending spoolie brush. Available March 12th onwards.

L’Occitane Women’s Day Solidarity Balm

This International Women’s Day, do your part by purchasing the Women’s Day Solidarity Balm. This multi-purpose balm is powered by 97.9% shea butter with a new hibiscus floral scent to pay homage to the native flower of Burkina Faso. By purchasing the Women’s Day Solidarity Balm, 100% of the profits from this will finance NGO projects to promote women’s leadership in Burkina Faso with the support of the L’Occitane Foundation.

Louis Vuitton Heures d’Absence

Les Parfums Louis Vuitton releases its 11th perfume: Heures d’Absence. The name was first conceived in 1972 by Louis Vuitton himself, but the original formula was sadly lost. For the modern iteration, perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud decided to reimagine it in his own way. The result is a fresh floral perfume, a homage to Grasse. Notes of jasmine, rose, mimosa, raspberry, sandalwood, and musk dress up the perfume, making it another perfect collectable.

Laneige Cream Skin collection additions

If your thirsty skin loved the Laneige Cream Skin range, then you’ll be delighted to know that the Korean skincare brand is adding three more products to the line. There’s the Laneige Cream Skin Refiner Mist, a Quick Skin Pack, and the Milk Oil Cleanser. The Refiner Mist is formulated with the line’s Cream Blending technology to provide moisture and strengthen the skin’s barrier. It’s also powered with White Leaf Tea Water that’s rich in amino acids. It’s perfect to bring around with you for moisture on-the-go. Simply spritz it onto your face to deeply moisturise skin. 

Next, the Quick Skin Pack is a toner mask in a jar fortified with the Cream Skin Refiner ingredients. This two-minute toner mask is an extremely quick fix to get your moisture in so you can head out immediately. 

Finally, the Milk Oil Cleanser is the perfect answer to your oil cleansing woes. This one won’t leave a greasy film on your skin after. Use it as your first cleansing step to remove makeup. The best part? You don’t need to emulsify this solution with water – simply rinse it off.
