The Love Months brings new beauty items to capture your heart. Who needs a partner when you have these picks to show some self-love? Treat yourself to amazing new skincare and makeup from both luxury and drugstore brands. Beauty houses like Chanel, Milani, and Etude House (among others) have exciting new releases to captivate and enthrall you this February. Here’s a rundown of new faves to add to your collection.
KATE Tokyo Brow Lasting Base
Brows that last for throughout the entire day? Yes, please! KATE Tokyo, one of Japan’s leading drugstore beauty brands, comes out with the Brow Lasting Base this month. While we’re used to the notion of primer before foundation, this product takes it a step further by creating a smooth foundation for your eyebrow products. The cream-to-powder formula was made to be waterproof, so you’ll have IG-worthy ‘brows all day long. It’s available in Don Don Donki, LAZADA, Shopee, Welcia-BHG, and selected Sasa and Watsons stores.
KATE Tokyo Skin Color Control Base
Don’t you just want to wake up to smooth, flawless skin everyday? Say bye-bye to imperfections — uneven skin, dullness, redness, and acne scars alike — with the nifty primer-and-finisher Skin Color Control Base. It promises to give your skin with a lit-from-within glow, even underneath your complexion products. It also has SPF. Available in Don Don Donki, LAZADA, Shopee, Welcia-BHG, and selected Sasa and Watsons stores.
DECORTÉ Moisture Liposome Mask
Skin feeling a little bit dry? Introduce a boost of hydration with the DECORTÉ Moisture Liposome Mask.

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta® Pore Perfecting & Refining Serum
No more visible pores this month with Dr. Dennis Gross’s new serum: the Alpha Beta® Pore Perfecting & Refining Serum. Large pores, clogged pores and open pores — products used to minimise the appearances of these problems often trigger more oil production. Thus, Dr. Dennis Gross created a serum that helps diminish pore visibility while reducing oiliness. You can get the new serum from Sephora Singapore stores and website.
Sulwhasoo Timetreasure Honorstige
Sulwhasoo releases the most luxurious anti-ageing skincare range yet. The Timetreasure Honorstige uses red pine, Reishi Mushroom, and Active Ginseng Cell™ to create a skin-pampering line aimed to restore skin’s vitality and treat visible signs of ageing.
