We are currently in the midst of the barrage of all that’s new and coming in the beauty world for the Fall/Winter 2019 beauty season. Recently, we brought you a list of brands finally arriving on our shores for the season, but the splurge train doesn’t stop there. Labels we know and love, ranging from the likes of Laneige to Christian Louboutin Beauty are coming up with fresh goodies. We’ll be dressing our faces with these products to celebrate the rest of the year with.
Ready your credit cards as we take you through our favourites.
Too Faced has built a name for itself on several key products. One of them is the boldly-named Better Than Sex mascara, which grew into a holy grail for many ever since its release in 2013. The sequel to the OG mascara from the brand is Damn Girl. This mascara promises extreme volume without weighing down your lids, polymers that lift and curl your lashes, and the best part — a 24-hour smudge and flake-resistant wear time. Though we don’t know why anyone needs mascara on round the clock, that guarantee still gets us going, “Damn, girl”.

Rihanna continues her domination over the beauty realm with an upcoming extension of her Pro Filt’r base range, launching on August 15th. Out of everything she’s releasing, we’re most excited for the Hydrating Primer. Tailor-made for dry skin, this moisture-rich primer promises that foundation doesn’t crease and crack on your skin, and you stay glowy round the clock in true Rihanna fashion.

Laneige redefined lipsticks way back when they launched their duo-coloured lip bars. Now, the K-beauty company is taking that innovation a notch further with the debut of a six-shaded lip bullet named the Laneige Layering Lip Bar. The revolutionary formula delivers the perfect rosebud pout with one swatch and requires no blending, so it’s seamless. The bar is available in two formulas, cream and matte, with 14 shades for the former and six for the latter.
S$39. Available at Laneige boutiques and counters.
We’ve all had fantasies of a foundation that is full coverage and long-lasting yet doesn’t turn into a cakey mask of liquid concrete as the day continues. Pat McGrath Labs has turned that dream into reality with its Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Foundation, equipped with all the good points we’ve mentioned, and complete with a barely-there feel on the skin. Seriously, you forget you’re wearing a base layer with this baby on. What truly takes the cake for us is that the foundation will be available in 36 shades with a variety of undertones that are not just yellow or pink. Yes, please.
S$100. Available at Sephora.
Benefit’s cult Benetint lip and cheek stain has undergone an overhaul. Now, it is known as the Love Tint and comes in a new slimline bottle with a revamped doe-foot applicator that makes the application a breeze. The formula hasn’t changed, though, so don’t sweat losing your staple. It’s only gotten better.
S$31. Available at Benefit counters.
Christian Louboutin Beauty’s arrival in Singapore was one of the highlights to our year, and it’s just been doubled with the release of the Loubiglittergloss, an ultra-sparkly gloss that can be spotted a mile away. Inspired by the Parisian cabaret culture and its accompanying glitz, this new high-shine lip product is a must-have for nights out at the club. There are six variations of reds to choose from including the signature Louboutin red, of course.
S$134. Available at TANGS.
A good blush is underrated in a time where we all stay sparkly-eyed over lipsticks, eyeshadows, and other more colourful makeup products. Still, a sweep of warmth to the cheeks can bring a whole look together, so it’s worth investing in something top quality like these Duo Blushes from CoverFX. Available in six shades with a matte and a shimmer option in one case, these are seamless on the skin so it looks as if you’re blushing naturally all day long. The formulas are also vegan, talc and mineral oil-free.
S$56. Available at Sephora.
Urban Decay extends its Naked line with a brand new foundation, the Stay Naked Weightless Liquid Foundation. Aside from promising 24-hour wear with no oxidisation, the Naked foundation is also waterproof, lightweight and breathable, with medium coverage that suits daily wear. Singapore carries 24 shades, so there is a significant selection for you to match yourself to.

Tarte never ceases to amaze with their eyeshadow palettes, and the new Unleashed is no exception. Inspired by the animal kingdom and the jungle, the Unleashed palette features 15 different shades that are as striking as they come, ranging from warm to cool tones, and a spectrum of finishes to enhance your look. The pans are plus-sized as well, so you get more bang for your buck.

Tom Ford’s Boys & Girls lipsticks are a makeup icon. The lipstick collection has recently undergone an expansion, and now, the brand has teased a new wave for the collection: the Tom Ford Boys and Girls 3. Though little is known thus far, we hear that there are 20 returning shades from the previous line and 30 brand new colours to tickle your fancies. There will also be a new texture available, known as the Soft Shine, a nourishing finish enriched with emollients for a lasting gloss. The line will be available from August 15th, and you can now test out the shades in stores.
Price TBA. Available at Sephora outlets and Robinsons in Raffles City.
