Must-Have Spring 2022 Beauty Products

Our beauty product needs naturally change from season to season – especially as cold winter weather ends and temperatures begin to rise. Now that the springtime shift is within reach and warm weather is (almost) here, we’ve started thinking about the products we’ll be retiring and the slew of new beauty offerings we’re coveting for spring: new mascaras, anti-aging creams, lightweight lotions and, of course, lipsticks.

Ready to refresh your spring beauty collection? Keep scrolling for a few of the most luxurious products from Gucci, Dr. Barbara Sturm, La Prairie, Giorgio Armani and Dior – they’re all at the top of our must-have list. All selections are conveniently available at Holt Renfrew stores across Canada and online at

GUCCI Mascara L’Obscur

Looking for low-key lash extensions? Then a single coat of Gucci Beauty’s Mascara L’Obscur might be what you’re looking for. The packaging is decadent – a weighty blush pink tube with gold “Gucci” lettering on its side and a fluted gold cap – but we expect nothing less from Alessandro Michele’s Gucci. The buildable mascara is created with the ultimate formulation, helping you create looks that range from classic to bold and dramatic. The rich, creamy formula creates instant definition in a single swipe, and can be layered to create volume that feels lightweight on the eyelashes without leaving you with fibre-false thickness. Plus, the long-lasting finish is good for up to 12 hours and does not smudge, flake, feather or migrate. In the words of Michele, “I designed Mascara L’Obscur for an authentic person who uses makeup to tell their story of freedom, in their way.”

DR. BARBARA STURM Super Anti-Aging Neck & Décolleté Cream

The skin on your neck and décolleté is naturally different from the skin on your face and tends to age more quickly than the rest of the face and body, which is why it will benefit from some moisturizer love. Celebrity-favourite skin-care expert Dr. Barbara Sturm has just launched Super Anti-Aging Face Cream, a new addition to the German aesthetic doctor’s cult-favourite Super Anti-Aging line. It’s a super moisturizer for the neck and chest, filled with potent ingredients that help smooth, tone and hydrate for healthier-looking skin. The luxurious Neck & Décolleté cream targets the specific skin needs of the neck and décolleté with potent ingredients such as purslane (a surprising botanical skin-care ingredient that contains skin-defending antioxidants), prickly pear and hyaluronic acid (which offer intensive hydration and skin-smoothing benefits), mangosteen (which creates an additional plumping effect) and an extract from shiitake mushrooms (which helps tighten and firm). Kombucha and daisy extracts round out the ingredient science by balancing skin tone and helping diminish the appearance of dark spots.

LA PRAIRIE White Caviar Essence Extraordinaire

La Prairie’s new White Caviar Essence Extraordinaire, part of the White Caviar Collection, was specifically designed to help firm skin while improving its luminosity, among many other benefits. Similar to previous skin-care products released by the brand, White Caviar Essence Extraordinaire was developed to transmit pure luxury. Inspired by the pure light that is unique to Montreux in Switzerland – La Prairie’s home – the Essence Extraordinaire comes in a sleek silver airless-pump and bottle-in-bottle technology that protects the formula from light, therefore preserving its optimal efficacy. The silky opalescent lotion includes four main hero ingredients: cellular complex, encapsulated Lumidose, caviar extract and caviar water, which all help leave your skin feeling smooth, firm, plump, hydrated and refreshed. The essence also helps reduce the appearance of brown spots and visibly improves the skin’s ability to reflect light.

GIORGIO ARMANI Lip Maestro Liquid Lipstick

Giorgio Armani’s luxurious Lip Maestro Liquid Lipstick definitely lives up to the hype. The doe-foot applicator helps when it comes to staying inside the lines, which means you won’t need to break out a lip brush to get precise liquid lipstick application. The long-lasting lip lacquer offers hours of hydration and has a comfortable velvety non-sticky texture that delivers intense, opaque colour and leaves lips instantly plumped and radiant. The brand promises up to eight hours of wear and the matte liquid lipstick comes in a range of beautiful, high-pigment shades.

DIOR Rouge Dior Lipstick

Few beauty products have endured the test of time like Dior’s Rouge Dior Lipstick. Almost 70 years after it was first created, the iconic long-wear lipstick (lasting up to 16 hours, according to the company) has been updated once again under the expertise of Christian Dior’s current creative director and all-round genius, Peter Philips. Rouge Dior comes in a range of beautiful colours and finishes including matte, satin, metallic and velvet. It is enriched with natural-origin ingredients like pomegranate flower extract (which helps improve overall lip quality for suppleness and softness) and shea butter (which complements the floral extracts’ protective action and provides intense nourishment). Did we mention the lipstick now comes in a refillable bullet? It’s a move that’s both sustainability-led and makes a point of the keepsake quality of this signature lip colour.
