From limited-edition eyeshadow palettes to new and improved skincare formulas, here are our best picks from the beauty world's February 2022 launches

1. Rouge Hermès Spring-Summer 2022

The Rouge Hermès Spring-Summer 2022 limited-edition collection is here and fans of the maison's beauty line will be pleased to welcome the arrival of three new refillable lipsticks. These beauty objects by Pierre Hardy, lacquered with vibrant and impressionistic colours, come in naturally luminous shades with a transparent gloss finish. And like all Rouge Hermès products, the application of each lipstick is a sensorial experience that is elevated with a signature scent that includes a blend of arnica, sandalwood, and candied angelica.

Available at Hermès Liat Towers, Hermès Marina Bay Sands, Hermès Takashimaya, Takashimaya Department Store, Tangs Department Store and Hermes.com.

2. Miss Dior Palette  

The iconic Miss Dior fragrance has been reimagined into a multi-purpose makeup palette. The Miss Dior Palette was developed as a limited edition for Valentine’s Day and follows in the fragrance trail of the perfume.

This collector’s palette is composed of three eyeshadows engraved with the houndstooth check and the dagger bow in delicate shades of pink; a floral lipcare lipstick with a satin finish; a long-wear blush signed Miss Dior, and a glittering topcoat. The eyeshadows are light and creamy in texture so use either the double-ended Miss Dior brush created exclusively for this palette or fingertips. But the best part of this palette is the sophisticated metallic case it comes in, marked with the famous Miss Dior label.

Available on Dior Beauty Online Boutique and at all Dior Beauty boutiques.

4. Guerlain Orchidée Impériale The Cream

The new and reinvented Orchidée Impériale Cream is a high-end beauty cream that offers the powerful benefits of orchids. This cream presents a new feat: high regeneration drawn from the roots of a duo of orchids. Captured from deep within their roots to their crown, this power is concentrated in the new molecular extract: Orchid Totum. It helps to activate and, for the first time, extend skin’s cell longevity. It helps to reduce signs of ageing and prolong youthful-looking skin.

Designed like a precious jewel in its case, the new Orchidée Impériale The Cream jar looks and feels exceptionally luxurious. It fits the palm of the hand and boasts a sophisticated shape that suggests feminity.

7. Tom Ford Rose Trilogy Collection

Experience your very own private rose garden with The Tom Ford Rose Trilogy collection—a provocative scent trilogy that will instantly awake the senses. The fragrances are created by molecular distillation of two roses in specific conditions with minimal heat to preserve the integrity of the fragile flowers.

Infused with Italian Bergamot, the Rose D’Amalfi Eau De Parfum is an intimate yet soft scent; the decadent Rose De Chine Eau De Parfum contrasts Chinese Yellow Peony with an exquisite “rose-on-rose” distillation, evoking vibrant blooms; and the Rose De Russie Eau De Parfum blends the texture of Russian black leather with intense florals, for an opulent, dramatic scent.

Each fragrance is housed in a translucent Private Blend bottle designed with a matte white label, glossy black accents, and a bold magenta-hued juice.

You should never leave the house with unkempt brows. And to help you keep your brows on fleek all day, Clé de Peau Beauté has introduced the new Eyebrow Gel.

With a long-lasting finish and a conditioning effect, it delivers a supple, three-dimensional finish that is natural and smudge-proof—all the elements needed to enhance eyebrows without them looking or feeling stiff.

The gel is infused with key ingredients including Aqua Holding for protection, Refined Camellia Oil for repair and Argan Oil to moisturise. The Eyebrow Gel comes with a precise, tapered wand that coats and combs through even the smallest of hairs. Available in four shades, you can wear the Eyebrow Gel alone for soft, naturally enhanced brows or with any eyebrow pencil of your choice for that added texture.  

Available at Clé de Peau Beauté counters.

10. Drunk Elephant A-Gloei Maretinol Oil

We love a good beauty oil and one of the best producers of this is none other than Drunk Elephant. Its new skin-smoothing treatment combines vegan retinol, virgin marula oil, and ceramides to refine skin’s texture and minimise the appearance of lines, hyperpigmentation, blemishes, and sun damage while locking in moisture and restoring a healthy glow.  

Use it in the morning or night by applying two to three drops to cleansed, dry face. Switch things up a bit by mixing it with your favourite Drunk Elephant moisturiser or serum. Pro tip: Mix A-Gloei with the C-Firma serum for even greater brightening and firming benefits.

Available at Sephora.

14. Maison Margiela Replica Flower Market

You asked, they listened. A fan of Replica? French luxury fashion house Maison Margiela officially opened its first-ever flagship fragrance boutique in Singapore last month. Now, fans of the brand can discover their favourite scents from the iconic Replica fragrance collection line of 15 perfumes and seven candles.

As part of the fragrance flagship boutique launch, Maison Margiela is spotlighting one of its best-selling scents, Flower Market, a sensual floral scent that reminds one of freshly cut flowers, wet petals and leaves in a Parisian flower market.

Maison Margiela is also highlighting four fragrances within its collection this season, including Flower Market. Other scents include the best-selling Lazy Sunday Morning (a delicate floral scent of fresh linen sheets crumpled against silky-smooth skin on lingering sunny mornings), Beach Walk (a warm soft scent reminiscent of a romantic stroll by the beach on carefree summer days), and Sailing Day (a fresh scent hinting of the cool embrace from the deep aquatic seas and blue skies).

Available at Maison Margiela in Ngee Ann City, #B1-14.

15. Dr Dennis Gross Advanced Retinol + Ferulic Intense Wrinkle Cream

Keen on getting started on retinol? In recent years, it has gotten increasingly easier to use this product—which some may understandably be wary of using. But now, it has never been so accessible, safe and simple to use thanks to brands like Dr Dennis Gross. The US skincare line recently released the Advanced Retinol + Ferulic Intense Wrinkle Cream to help complete your retinol routine. Armed with its patented Phyto-Retinol Blend with Ferulic Acid, this formulation will not trigger any potential irritating effects. All this cream does is transform the skin and repair its moisture barrier to reveal an ageless look. For maximum benefits, massage the cream into clean, dry skin in the morning and evening. Designed for morning use, the marriage of key ingredients in this creamy formulation is tailored to balance the skin from irritation caused by UV exposure. Along with the cream, remember to apply a generous layer of (a minimum of) SPF 30 during the day. 

Available at Sephora.

16. Est.lab ActivCalm Quick Soothing SOS Serum

The new Est.lab ActivCalm Quick Soothing SOS Serum is designed to calm skin inflammations that are largely triggered when undesirable stimulants and environmental pollutants like sun exposure and pollution hit the sensory receptors.

Drawing upon the concept of neurocosmetics, or the idea that the brain and the skin are connected and that emotions can affect and influence how the skin reacts, this serum is specially formulated with a blend of mood-enhancers to impart anti-irritant and soothing benefits to the skin, visibly relieving the skin of sensitivity and redness by up to 60 per cent in as little as 60 minutes. It is fast-acting and formulated to soothe the skin and let it feel calm and healthy almost instantly.

Available at all Estetica Beauty studios and online.
