The weather is getting hot hot hot and it’s time to save our skin with a selection of summer launches from Sephora. We tried and tested everything to give you a list of our favourites, and when you can expect them to reach the stores.
Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Pure Treatment Oil (S$38)
The unforgiving weather we have in Singapore spares no one (not even Mrs Beckham)! To tame the unruly frizzy hair most of us have, Alterna’s Bamboo Smooth Kendi Pure Treatment Oil can be used as a normal hair oil or as a hair treatment. This baby sulfate-free and smells amazing.
Launch date: In stores
Arcona Triad Pads (S$44)
We love products that simplify our beauty regimen, and the Arcona Triad Pads does just like that. Each pad (45 in a jar) removes make-up, cleanses and tones your face all at the same time! It’s formulated with cranberry extract to protect and clarify the skin and perfect for taking the day off after partying.
Launch date: 14 May
Skin Inc Hydrating Shield+ (S$68)
We believe it’s always best to start protecting your skin while it’s still firm and taut. The Skin Inc Hydrating Shield+ by Skin Inc is an all-in-one sunblock, moisturiser and anti-aging lotion which protects the skin from the harmful environment. Unlike most sunscreens, this one absorbs quickly, goes well underneath make-up and doesn’t streak foundation. It protects acne-prone skin without clogging, has anti-bacterial and soothing abilities to help reduce the redness and irritation caused by the sun.
Launch date: May
Tarte The Sculptor Double-Ended Contour & Highlighter (S$38)
If you didn’t know already, we love products that are easy to use! The Tarte Sculptor Double-Ended Contour & Highlighter has the matte bronzer on one end to define your facial features, while the other end has a highlighter shade that creates a soft dimension to balance your contoured look. Perfect for carrying around in your makeup pouch!
Launch date: 9 July
Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara (POA)
We are constantly looking for the perfect waterproof mascara and guess what, we’ve found it! We tried the Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara and true to its waterproof claim, it’s super easy to apply, clump-free and most importantly, survived our humid weather without smudging for the whole day. You can even use it as a coat on top of your regular lengthening or volumising mascara to prevent smudging as well. We are sold!
Launch date: TBC
Urban Decay Ultimate Ozone Multipurpose Primer Pencil (S$25)
If you’ve tried the Urban Decay Ozone 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil and loved it, it’s time to rejoice as they are set to launch the thick barrelled Ultimate Ozone Multipurpose Primer Pencil! You can use it to fill in the fine lines around the eyes and even clean up mascara smudges. But we still prefer to use them on our lips where it holds the colour, prevents feathering, fills in the fine lines and is super moisturising.
Launch date: 11 June
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick (S$32)
These Stila Liquid Lipsticks really stay, with up to 6 hours of continuous wear, with no touch up needed. The colour pay-off is great, doesn’t transfer, is bleed-proof and hydrating. It doesn’t hurt that it comes in the most delicious summer hues either!
Launch date: 15 June
Butter London Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquers (S$25)
The best thing about Butter London Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquers is that you don’t have to put on any base or top coats! The Shock Resisting Polymer Technology delivers limitless shine with up to 10 days of wear. Apply 2 to 3 coats for the best effect.
Launch date: 9 July
