Lipstick addicts are in for a treat.
Another month, another set of beauty products to add to our wishlist and potentially our shopping cart.
October 2018 welcomes an array of new lip products, featuring innovative formulas and/or packaging that offer an improved look and feel on the lips. But that’s not all, there’s also a limited-edition highlighter, state-of-the-art hair styler and highly-pigmented eyeshadow palette to check out. As usual, wishlist away!
YSL Beauty Rouge Pur Couture The Slim
Launched at the recent YSL Beauty Hotel in KL, the new Rouge Pur Couture The Slim range is the first from YSL Beauté Global Beauty Director Tom Pecheux. The range consists of 24 couture shades with an ultra-pigmented matte finish that emulates the suppleness of leather. True to the name, the lipsticks come in a classy, cool black and gold packaging with square-cut bullets for a simple, sharp application. Available now in YSL Beauty locations and online.

M.A.C Powder Kiss Lipstick
Inspired by the blurred-lips trend seen on the runways of the recent Fashion Week, M.A.C’s latest lipstick innovation is made with a weightless, moisture-matte formula that effortlessly blends out at the edges to achieve that soft-focus effect. Despite the matte name, its innovative formula is designed to condition and hydrate the lips with its moisture-coated powder pigments. Available in 16 shades including berries, nudes and reds from 11th October 2018 at all M.A.C locations and online. W maccosmetics.com.my
Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Glaze All-Over Foil Luminizer
Made for girls who love a major glow, this new, limited-edition highlighter comes in an oversized compact that’s sure to last you a long time. The warm, peachy gold shade has a foiled-effect thanks to its micro-fine, jet-milled powder formula that reflects light without glitter. Its shiny, mirrored gold packaging is just a bonus – making it the perfect gift for a fellow makeup geek! Available from 11th October on Sephora’s website and 8 November in Sephora stores.

Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color
Queen RiRi is not out of surprises for her beauty brand and this time it’s the extension of her best-selling Stunna Lip Paint range. Featuring three new nude shades and one bold, ultra-black pigment, Fenty fans are spoilt for more head-turning lipsticks in the same long-lasting, soft matte formula. Her products are known to sell out in no time, so head over to your nearest Sephora location or online to get it fast! W sephora.my
GHD Platinum + styler
Here’s one for fuss-free tresses – the ground-breaking platinum + styler by ghd features ultra-zone predictive technology that guarantees homogenous heat across the styling plate. This also allows it to recognise your hair thickness, the section size and the speed at which you’re styling to adjust the power accordingly, while always maintaining a safe temperature of 185 degrees Celsius. The results? Smooth and efficient styling minus the concern of damaging your hair over time. Available at Sephora stores and selected fine hair salons locally.
Urban Decay Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette
After the success of last year's Urban Decay Naked Heat eyeshadow palette comes its baby sister, the Naked Cherry. Featuring 12 shades ranging from creamy ivory and shimmering coppers and plums to the most intense black cherry, we can already think of a few eye looks to try on with it. And that cherry packaging on the front? Stunning. Available now in Sephora stores and online. W sephora.my
