Prada Beauty has finally launched a full makeup and skincare range. The highly-anticipated makeup collection is comprised of six eyeshadow palettes, 13 lipsticks (in two finishes, soft matte and hyper matte), a lip balm, and the Prada Reveal Foundation; the Augmented Skin skincare collection includes The Cream, The Serum, The Cleanser, and The Makeup Remover.

The collection launched online on August 1st and then in-store across Europe on August 18. Unfortunately, the collection is not available in Malaysia just yet, but stay tuned for updates on its local launch!


Le Labo’s City Exclusives collection returns for 2023

If there’s one event all fragrance fiends look forward to every year, it’s the return of Le Labo’s City Exclusive collection worldwide. Initially created to pay tribute to the brand’s favourite cities from around the world, the City Exclusive collection is typically only available in the labs (read: Le Labo boutiques) of the cities they were created for and nowhere else. That’s right—that means no online shopping, no store-to-store shipping, and no exceptions… unless?

Indeed, once a year, the Le Labo City Exclusives leave their homes for the entire month of September so you can discover them. From September 1st to September 30th, you can shop the fill-sized City Exclusive Fragrances on the Le Labo Fragrances website, in Le Labo boutiques and at select retailers. Even better, if you simply can’t wait, you can now shop City Exclusives samples and discovery sets online and in boutiques.

Earlier this month, YSL Beauty tapped Austin Butler as the global ambassador for the house’s new MYSLF fragrance. Described as a scent for the contemporary man—sensitive but authentic, confident but approachable, effortless but complex—we can’t think of a better man to embody the new fragrance.

“I was honoured to be asked to join the YSL Beauty family,” says the Elvis star on his new partnership. “Over the last few years, I’ve spoken with people who knew M. Saint Laurent. He broke through labels. He was a rebel, and I love that about him. I feel privileged to be a part of the heritage he set in motion.”

The MYSLF fragrance will be available in Malaysia in early 2024, so stay tuned for more details on the fragrance launch.
