Another month, another set of beauty products to add to our wishlist and potentially our shopping cart.
Get your wallets ready (digital ones included) as this April brings us a whole buffet of new launches for us to feast our eyes on and sink into our skin. The skincare category sees fresh cleansers, ampoules, essences and sunscreens in store; whereas makeup geeks can look forward to testing out skin tints, eyeliners and lip pencils. There’s also a new collaborative fragrance collection by Chloe and an upgraded FOREO device to keep a look out for.
Without further ado, dive into our beauty picks of the month below.
Chloe Atelier des Fleurs
The House of Chloe has just unveiled a fragrance collection dubbed Atelier des Fleurs, comprising of twelve fragrances expressing floral, aromatic or woody notes. Chloe worked with renowned perfumers to select their favourite flower plant or element to represent the heart of the fragrance, sharing their personal childhood memories, travel recollections or reminiscences in doing so. The collection is composed with natural ingredients and designed to live in harmony in pairs or threes, allowing users to play with their own composition. Reflecting a simple elegance, the pleated glass bottles are topped with an ivory stopper that appears carved in stone, along with a neckband and label trim in gold.
Available at Isetan KLCC from 26 March onwards.
Clarins UV Plus [5P] Anti-Pollution SPF 50-PA +++
Sunproof and pollution-proof your skin with Clarins’ new multi-protection moisturising screen, formulated to provide advanced protection from UVA/UVB rays and 5 types of pollutants found in daily life. After testing 18 different filters in 52 combinations, Clarins has managed to incorporate organo-mineral filters and SPF 50 into a lightweight cream formula that enhances the skin’s self-defense power by 64%. Arriving in three different shades with different skin toning benefits, the anti-pollution cream is housed in an eco-designed tube and cap made using 36% recycled plastic.
Available now at all Clarins counters nationwide.
Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint
Following its cult-favourite foundations, Fenty Beauty is launching a blurring skin tint with light-to-medium coverage. This new complexion product combines the brand’s signature longwear but light as air formula that seamlessly blends into the skin, as well as a proprietary Quickblur Complex to diffuse the look of pores and wrinkles for a smoothing effect. On top of its soft blur texture, application and finish, the formula includes sodium hyaluronate to hydrate and nourish the skin. It comes in 25 flexible shades that match with the Pro Filt’r range, enclosed in a new compact and travel-friendly bottle design.
Available from March 26, 2021 on sephora.my and April 1, 2021 in-store at Sephora Malaysia.
FOREO UFO 2
If you’re one to get excited about beauty tools like us, the FOREO UFO 2 (also available in a mini version) is worth checking out. A notable upgrade from its ground-breaking predecessor, this new at-home device offers advanced thermo- and cryo-therapy that delivers heat and cold five times faster than the first generation. The former setting helps to open the pores and promote the absorption of sheet masks into the skin, whilst the latter shrinks the pores and soothes puffiness. Additionally, it comes with eight different LED lights that each offer unique benefits to the skin, combined with T-Sonic™ pulsations to increase the microcirculation and absorption of active ingredients in sheet masks into the skin.
FRESH Soy Face Cleanser (limited edition)
FRESH’s best-selling Soy Face Cleanser is getting another yet another limited-edition look, this time in conjunction with the brand’s 30th anniversary. Celebrating the beauty of all skin types, the new bottle design features illustrations of different individuals in fresh, green hues. Formula-wise, the pH balanced do-it-all cleanser promises to remove dirt, impurities, and makeup for soft, soothed and clean skin.
Available exclusively on sephora.my and Sephora stores nationwide from 1 April 2021.
Gucci Beauty Crayon Contour des Lèvres And Stylo Contour des Yeux
New to Gucci Beauty’s ever-expanding makeup collection this Spring are a lip pencil and eye liner range. Named Crayon Contour des Lèvres and Stylo Contour des Yeux respectively, both ranges offer six unique shades for beauty enthusiasts to play with colour. The lip contour pencil features a soft, blendable formula presented in a sleek white tube with a gold-plated cap, with colours ranging from nude to taupe and red. Meanwhile, the kohl eye liner pencils offer a long-wearing, waterproof formula that seamlessly glide across the lids in bold hues of black, brown, blue, red or amethyst.
Available at the Gucci KLCC store from 7th April.
NUDESKIN by NUDESTIX
After its global launch last year, NUDESTIX’s skincare counterpart, NUDESKIN has finally arrived in Malaysia. Designed as a comprehensive 4-step skincare regimen featuring multi-tasking, vegan-powered products, the line-up consists of a cleansing balm, face cleanser, skin-clarifying peel, toner and moisturiser. Developed in collaboration with renowned dermatologist Dr. Jason Emer and made in Korea, the collection is gender-neutral, suitable for all skin types, and “curated for everyone wanting simple, natural skincare solutions as your-skin-but-better.”

Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Rescue Ampoule
Joining Sulwhasoo’s signature Concentrated Ginseng Renewing line, the new Concentrated Ginseng Rescue is made to complement its best-selling serum in soothing the skin and offering anti-aging benefits. Formulated with Ginsenomics™, Ginseng Berry Extracts and triple micro-targeting technology, this potent ampoule serves to improve skin resilience and promote firmer, radiant-looking skin in as little as three weeks.
SK-II Limited Edition Pitera Essence
There has been many reiterations of limited-edition SK-II PITERA Essence bottles in the past, but this year’s edition could be the most endearing yet. Inspired by the quintessential style of girls in Tokyo, the two new bottles are dressed in traditional Japanese Kimonos featuring bright spring hues and graphic motifs. The same secret to Crystal Clear Skin with 90% PITERA Essence just got cuter!
