At a time like this, self-care has never mattered more.
One of the best ways to keep your spirits up is to indulge in a little retail therapy, and for that, we have your back with a slew of releases from beauty brands across the globe that have caught our eye.
From skin care to makeup, here are the new beauty launches that have made our lust list this April 2020. In light of the current global health issues, be mindful that these stores also have digital platforms that you can shop from so you don’t have to throng to a physical store.
