It's 2024, and TikTok trends and influencers are driving beauty purchases. The first quarter of the year has already seen exciting new launches in makeup, promising an innovative year in beauty.

Here are some of the new makeup brand launches that are trending in the first quarter of 2024:

Dior - Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss

The Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss, priced at $40, introduces three new shades: Shimmer Candy, a shimmering candy pink; Shimmer Rose Gold, a shimmering golden pink; and Icy Blue, a sheer pastel blue. 

The gloss features a new 90% natural-origin formula, a revamped case, and updated shades. Formulated without sulfates, parabens, and other harmful ingredients, this vegan and cruelty-free gloss contains cherry oil and hyaluronic acid to plump and hydrate lips for up to 24 hours. 

It can be used as a lip gloss for mirror-like shine or as a lip primer for smooth, hydrated lips before applying lipstick. The formulation is non-sticky, offers a slight tingly sensation, has cute and subtle sparkles, and smells pleasant without being overpowering. The size is compact enough to fit into smaller bags.

Westman Atelier - Lip Suede Matte Lipstick

Lip Suede Matte Lipstick, $50 each, has debuted with an exclusive early launch at Westman Atelier, set to expand to retailers like Sephora and Nordstrom on March 19. Housed in a glossy twist-up tube with a magnetic closure, the packaging is stylish but may pose storage challenges due to its magnetic feature. 

The formula offers a cushiony matte finish that feels more like satin, gliding on smoothly and providing even coverage. 

While not hydrating, the formula is also not drying, and it has a subtle, barely noticeable scent. The lipstick's lasting power is decent, though it is not transfer-proof and may appear slightly dry after extended wear. 

The Lip Suede Matte Lipstick range includes shades like Lacker, a light peach; Pique, a taupe rose; Minx, a warm pink; Je Reve, a mauve rose; and Rue, a cool chestnut brown.

Sisley Paris - Phyto-Teint Perfection Foundation

The Sisley Paris Phyto-Teint Perfection Foundation is a mattifying, transfer-proof, and high-coverage foundation featuring Sisley's exclusive Ideal Skin Complex. It hydrates, smooths, and illuminates, offering a matte finish with a natural glow at $125. 

The lightweight, fluid texture masks imperfections, blurs pores, and smooths out skin texture. Available in 29 shades, it can be applied with fingers or a brush and is suitable for all skin types, offering buildable medium to ultra-high coverage. 

Key ingredients include cucumber extract, green lentil extract, buckwheat seed extract, and peach blossom extract for hydration, pore reduction, and antioxidant properties.
