Do you Know about these Makeup Buys from Sephora ?
Sephora is making waves with some awesome new products on the shelves. Our exclusive Sephora ‘Sneak Peek’ tells you what you need to know, and buy, before the festive season sets in!
1. FARSALI Jelly Beam Illuminator:
New to Sephora Singapore, this is on top of my list!
This multi-functional jelly isn’t your usual highlighter, as the name depicts. Don’t be afraid when you open the packaging and it reminds you of a shiny kids’ slime. Once you’ve stirred it, it transforms into a thick, liquid consistency. It applies like a gel and sets like a powder for a high-shine finish. And it’s not just for your cheekbones, it can be mixed with you moisturizer for a natural glow, or into your foundation or body cream for an all over glow.
You can use it over your eyeshadow as well as lipsticks. Well worth the splurge, isn’t it?
The FARSALI Jelly Beam Illuminator is available in 3 shades in Sephora, Singapore.
Glazed: A dull golden glow
Glow up: A light pink glow
Rose Goals: A rose gold glow.
SGD 65 each.
2. HUDA BEAUTY #FauxFilter Foundation:
This face lifting formula is one of the best things that happened to Sephora. Not only has it been created by none other than one of the top beauty bloggers and influencers – Huda Kattan – thousands of women swear by it as it’s packed with ultra-refined pigments that visually erase blemishes, conceal hyper-pigmentation, smooth skin, and blur imperfections. The formula blends seamlessly, using just one pump, for a second-skin look. The inclusive range offers a shade for every skin tone and ethnicity.
I’ve yet to get my hands on one. And I cannot wait!
The #FauxFilter Foundation by Huda Beauty is available in 30 shades in Sephora, Singapore.
SGD 75 each.
3. LAURA MERCIER Loose Setting Powder:
This product is a must-have! From professional makeup artists to ladies who love a natural finish, everyone loves this translucent setting powder which creates a soft-focus effect when it comes to your makeup. It won’t settle into fine lines while baking or dry out your skin when applied all over. Plus it boasts a no-flashback formula, meaning you’ll look great in photos without any kind of oily finish. The Translucent Loose Setting Powder is my personal favourite. However those who prefer colourless/invisible or a coloured type can go with the following shades.
The Laura Mercier Loose Setting powder is available in 3 shades in Sephora, Singapore.
Translucent: Matches most skin types
Medium Deep: A deeper gold shade
Invisible: Well the name says it all.
SGD 70 each.
4. IT Cosmetics No-Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner:
How many of us have eyelids far more wrinkly than they should be at our age? The culprit usually is a quick, harsh application of eyeliners and the excessive rubbing and pulling at the sensitive skin while removing them.
This gel eyeliner with “No Tug” technology applies rich pigment without tugging on lids during application. Clinically shown to be waterproof even after 8 hours of wear, it carries anti-aging ingredients infused into liners for younger looking lids.
My favourite shade is the Black/Brown but sadly it sells out before I’ve even added it to the cart! Price-wise, it’s a bit steep but well worth the price as it lasts a long time on the eyes, as well as in your makeup bag.
The IT Cosmetics NO-Tug Gel Eyeliner is available in 8 shades in Sephora, Singapore.
SGD $34 each.
5. NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment:
If you are looking for a liquid-lip formula which doesn’t give a drying feel or look, is matte, yet strong and luscious. And most importantly, lasts – this is it!
This smudge-resistant lip pigment will be your one-stop solution for texturised lips that last throughout the day. Not only will the quick-dry formula withstand the elements for a durable finish, it will create a bright and beautiful pigmented look. Glide the liquefied pigments onto your lips for ultimate colour saturation. It’s so lightweight you won’t even know it’s there!
I bought the shade “Don’t Stop” and it’s to die for.
The NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment is available in 15 gorgeous shades in Sephora, Singapore.
SGD $40 each.
