Jo Malone London Poppy & Barley

A wonderful floral for fall, this inviting scent features a very British fragrance element, which is poppy, made unique with the signature Jo Malone London touch of adding something quirky, which is the warm cottony scent of barley. Black currant also adds a brighter facet to this new counter staple. "Poppy & Barley has an element of the unexpected and unusual—a contrast between the vibrant poppies and the nourishing grains, rounded by hints of violet and fig," shares Mathilde Bijaoui, the perfumer for this JML cologne. 

P8,150 for 100ml; P4,100 for 30ml; P2,450 for 250ml body and hand wash; at Jo Malone London counters nationwide.

New La Mer The Regenerating Serum

Like all La Mer favorites, the Regenerating Serum features the brand’s legendary Miracle Broth, featuring regenerative giant sea kelp extracts for soothing the skin and fighting skin aging. What’s new about this reformulation is the addition of the Metabolic Ferment, which has concentrated plant stem-cell ingredients, glutathione, and niacinamide, aiding in collagen production to rapidly reduce lines and wrinkles. It also has a new “delivery system” that allows the product and its key ingredients to penetrate more deeply into the skin to give the best results.

New Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector

It’s risky to reformulate an iconic cult favorite—and Laura Mercier knows that. This is why for its new tinted moisturizer, the brand made sure to keep everything that users love about the trusted beauty product that’s been around for over a decade—from the sheer, glowy coverage to the natural feeling on the skin—and limit the upgrades to truly necessary and hardworking ones. This repackaged and reformulated “skin-caring makeup” now comes with a hydrating complex featuring macadamia and kukui seed oils, antioxidants, more shades, and higher sunscreen protection with SPF30. It has also eliminated parabens and silicones from its formula, which is great news for those with sensitive skin.

This newest men’s fragrance by CH (which smells great even on ladies!) perfectly complements the brand’s iconic Good Girl. This masculine scent has all the elements of a tropical climate bestseller, as what could have been quite deep with dark accords of cocoa, amberwood, and tonka bean is tempered and brightened with sage, bergamot, and pepper. It’s a well-groomed, bright, and dapper fragrance that’s easy to love, making it a great gift option for the men in your life. It comes in a lightning bolt bottle, definitely a handsome dresser accent.

Jyunka M+ Fluid

You need vitamin C in skincare to penetrate deeply into the skin for it to actually work. After many experiments and tests, Jyunka was able to create this brand-defining miracle fluid with a unique Q-some technology that allows the tiniest vitamin C molecules to penetrate and break down within the skin. The results are both immediate and long-term. See brighter, smoother, more elastic skin with this iconic Singapore skincare label that’s now available in Manila. 

P12,000 for 50ml; P3,800 for 8ml; Available at Beautiqua, Shangri-La Plaza

Laneige Layering Lip Bar

Korean brand Laneige left quite an impact on the beauty world when it first released its first collection of multi-gradated lipsticks during the height of the ombré lip trend in 2015. This season, it’s resurrecting the K-beauty look and making the application even easier with the launch of the world’s first six-layer lipstick. With a simple glide, the Layering Lip Bar helps women, makeup junkies and novices alike, achieve fuller-looking lips. The lipstick comes in 20 shade combinations with a generous selection of 14 creamy formulas and six matte types. Some of the color permutations are more overt in effect than others, so there’s something for those who want a subtler effect and those who want to go all-out.

Available at SM Makati, SM Megamall, and SM Mall of Asia

Cult beauty brand M.A.C is in tune with the needs of its Asian market, which is why it produced a product exclusively for the Eastern climate and their client’s preference for cushion compacts. The new addition to the Studio Fix family boasts of water-resistant features that stays put for hours so you’re covered all day. It’s also buildable and provides full coverage. The formula seamlessly blends with the skin, as it also comes in an array of shades to suit the spectrum of skin tones unique to Asian countries.

Available at M.A.C boutiques nationwide

Twilly d’Hermès Eau Poivrée

In 2017, Hermès released what would become one of the more recognized women’s fragrances in the luxury brand’s portfolio. The next step was, naturally, to build on that popularity. Two years later, we have its predecessor, the Twilly D’Hermès eau Poivrée. “Poivree” is French for pepper, one of the star ingredients in this warm fragrance. The perfume is reborn with the spice of pink peppercorn, the gentleness of Damascus rose, and a daring touch of patchouli. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart.

Available at Hermès, Greenbelt 3

This holiday, NARS is going back to the future for inspiration, with the release of a delicious and glamorous limited edition collection. The iconic Old New York hot spot Studio 54 served as the perfect excuse for NARS to celebrate excess with the age of dancing and disco in mind. Perhaps the star of the collection is the Audacious lipstick, which comes in sparkling new packaging and produces glitter with every swipe.

Available at NARS branches nationwide

Laura Mercier Caviar Volume Collection

This mascara thickens and volumizes partly thanks to its intensely pigmented formula, and partly because of its revolutionary wand called the Lash-Hugging Helix brush. One layer will give its wearer natural, but fuller-looking lashes, and two will give her that panoramic effect its name promises.

Finish off any holiday season ensemble with a freshly coated set of nails. This box of six shades of purple can take its wearer from party to party, with vibrant hues and a long-lasting gel formula that won’t chip away so easily. The Skinny Dippin’ bottle is perfect for weekends and days off, while the darker shades such as Dim All the Lights and Break Free is suitable for more formal affairs.
