Wonder Beauty Counter: January Is All About Nostalgia and Ultra-Smooth Bases

New year, new products



For the Year of the Rat, fortune and personality favor those who believe. This January, we pore over an array of new collections for the #skinthusiast. If you’re not into pressed highlighters with skittish creatures adorned on them—a bit in-your-face, don’t you think?—maybe take a subtle (and more nostalgic) route?


Here are some releases to kick off your yearly resolution to finally pursue a skincare routine or even do a hard reset and revamp your style?



Be still, our Disney hearts! As we eagerly await all the Disney film releases for the year ahead—Mulan, anyone?—all eyes are on the limited-edition innisfree HELLO 2020 Disney Collection featuring Mickey Mouse and Friends. The follow-up to the successful Toy Story launch in 2019 features three limited-edition sets with full-sized products and generous samples highlighting the K-Beauty brand’s bestselling products.

As far as cult followings go, Benefit’s POREfessional Primer is pretty well-equipped. Many a beauty junkie’s first foray into the world of primers, this stuff has the power to smooth over any surface like a dream, replacing the texture of bump and blemish with a silky finish. The POREfessional has had its fair share of iterations throughout the years, but this season ushers in the newest addition to the family of face primers: The POREfessional Hydrate Primer.

Like the OG pore-shrinking formula, the Hydrate Primer is lightweight, oil-free and keeps makeup in place all day long––only this one packs an extra punch of hydration (a good 12 hours of it!) thanks to the Hyaluronic Acid in it. It also gives the skin a dose of Shea Butter, which helps to hydrate and moisturize the skin to help foundation, concealer and the rest of your beauty routine glide on like a dream.
