The spotlight continues to shine on glowing skin for April, with various skincare and base makeup products designed to restore clarity and radiance to the complexion—after all, good skin is always in trend. Look out for some limited-edition launches from YSL Beauté and The History of Whoo as well, each with their gorgeous new cushion compact cases that deserve a place on your vanity and in your makeup pouch.
1/11 Dior Forever Skin Correct
Following the success of its Dior Forever foundation, Dior expanded the collection with a new concealer that offers the same weightless finish and long-lasting 24-hour coverage. More than just brightening and correcting under-eye circles, redness and blemishes, Dior Forever Skin Correct also delivers potent skincare benefits to your skin. The concealer is enriched with wild pansy extract and rosehip extract which ensures lasting hydration and improves the appearance of fine lines and pores.
Available at all Dior counters.
2/11 YSL Beauté Le Cushion Endre De Peau
YSL Beauté’s iconic Le Cushion Endre De Peau foundation gets two sparkling new looks for 2020—the glistening Sequin limited edition in No 10, No 20, and No 30; and the even rarer Crystal limited edition in No 20, featuring 335 multifaceted crystals. There are only three Crystal compacts available in Singapore. The foundation is YSL Beauté’s first ink-in-cushion application, offering a long-lasting medium coverage with a luminous matte finish.

A reformulation of Clé de Peau Beauté’s best-selling Correcting Cream Veil, this primer now includes the brand’s exclusive Skin-Empowering Illuminator complex to protect the skin from environmental aggressors and improve the skin’s natural radiance over time.

4/11 The History of Whoo Gongjinhyang: Seol Radiant White Moisture Cushion Foundation
History of Whoo has launched a beautiful limited-edition set for the Gongjinhyang: Seol Radiant White Moisture Cushion Foundation. Heralding the season of spring, the intricate silver case is embellished with pastel-coloured cherry blossoms in full bloom. Infused with the same formulation of the Gongjinhyang: Seol Whitening Ampoule, this brightening cushion foundation delivers long-lasting moisture and coverage for that glass skin finish. Only 200 pieces are available island-wide.
Available at The History of Whoo counters at Tangs at Tang Plaza, Tangs at VivoCity, and Takashimaya.
5/11 Estée Lauder Perfectionist Pro Rapid Brightening Treatment Ferment² + Vitamin C
Adopting a holistic approach to skin brightening, Estée Lauder’s new Perfectionist Pro Rapid Brightening Treatment Ferment² + Vitamin C is concocted to address over 20 fundamental pathways in the skin to rapidly boost radiance and luminosity. The exclusive brightening complex is powered by antioxidant vitamin C, along with Ferment²—a combination of molasses ferment and yeast ferment that target the outermost as well as inner layer of the skin’s surface respectively to support cell turnover and reduce discolouration. The ultra-lightweight formula also promises to infuse skin with 48-hour hydration.
Available at all Estée Lauder boutiques and counters.
6/11 Tom Ford Research Eye Repair Concentrate
A potent eye serum that enhances the texture, tone and luminosity of under eyes, the Eye Repair Concentrate is formulated with white porcelain cacao, caffeine and gyokuro to brighten and re-energise tired eyes. Hyaluronic acid infuses the skin with moisture and maintains hydration for the delicate eye area, while antioxidant vitamin C and a multi-action peptide blend offer anti-ageing benefits.
Available at Tom Ford boutiques at Tangs at Tang Plaza, Takashimaya and Robinsons Raffles City.
7/11 Tatcha The Liquid Silk Canvas Face Primer
There's a new addition to Tatcha's Silk Canvas family: The Liquid Silk Canvas, a weightless and oil-free liquid primer that gives a satin finish. The product is infused with three silk extracts—Fibroin, Sericin and Silk Powder—that protect the skin from pollutants. It also nourishes the skin, minimises clogged pores, and helps to prolong your make-up throughout the day. A little goes a long way so just one pump will suffice; the mattifying product is also suitable for not only the face but eyes and lips as well.
Available at Sephora.
8/11 Decorté Sun Shelter
The range of UV protection sunscreen by Decorté has two key products: Sun Shelter Multi Protection Water Resistant and Sun Shelter Tone Up CC. The former has a waterproof formulation, pollution protection and is resistant to sweat and rubbing, which makes it ideal for active outdoor activities. The latter works as a great makeup base (available in three shades) as it brightens skin tone and blurs out pores.
Available at Decorté Ion Orchard boutique and counters.
9/11 Orbis Wrinkle White Essence
One is sold every minute in Japan, and as a testament to its efficacy, the Japanese government has classified it as a quasi-drug, a category that straddles both cosmetics and medical care. This essence—to be applied before moisturiser—prevents and reduces wrinkles and pigmentation, and contains W-Niacin which increases collagen production and reduces melanin build-up.
Available at Orbis counters.
10/11 Acqua di Parma Sakura
While Japan’s cherry blossom season is out of reach for now, Acqua di Parma's new fragrance, Sakura, might bring us on a little memory trip. The beautiful pink flower is the protagonist of this light, dreamy scent alongside a bouquet of yellow mandarin, bergamot, sambac jasmine and accents of pink pepper. The eau de parfum launches this month together with another scent, Camelia, as part of the brand’s Signatures of the Sun collection.
Available at Takashimaya, Robinsons The Heeren and Escentials boutiques at Paragon, Tangs and Ion Orchard.
11/11 Clarins Bright Plus Serum
Pollution affects the skin. How badly? In a study by Clarins, your complexion gets darker and duller due to reduced skin oxygenation, and increased production of melanin. In response to that, Bright Plus Serum was created to act like a shot of oxygen for the skin, thanks to two oxygenating plant extracts: rose-myrtle extract and acerola seed extract. Dark spots are reduced and skin luminosity improves—plus, it smells really great too.
Available at all Clarins boutiques, counters and online.
