We pick 10 things we test-drove and fell in love with from Sephora’s upcoming Autumn 2017 beauty launches
There’s no disputing it: Sephora is heavensent for the beauty obsessed. The start of every season is always a highlight for us – that’s when the store gets replenished with exciting new makeup, skincare and haircare products. So imagine our excitement (so much squealing!) when we got a sneak peek into next season’s launches at the brand’s Fall Press Day last week. Read on to discover ten beauty products you need from the autumn 2017 lineup – personally tried and tested. P.S: This information is so exclusive that not all of the launch dates and local prices have been released. Keep watching this space for more updates!
Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette
If you’ve yet to conquer contouring, the time is now. Like sculpting shapewear for your face, Tarte’s Face Shaping Palette helps define your eyes, brows, nose and face with 12 shades, ranging from ivory and warm taupe to coffee and chestnut. But before you dismiss this as yet another contouring palette, know this: it’s infused with skin-loving ingredients, including Amazonian clay to replenish skin and for even application, as well as vanilla extract for anti-aging properties.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks (New Nudes) collection
If you’re, like me, of a darker skintone, you know the struggle of finding the perfect nude lipstick all too well. It won’t be too long ‘til you score the right shade – the popular Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks will soon feature six new nude shades ($31 each), which include browns, peaches and plums in a matte finish and full coverage application.

Cover FX Blurring Primer
Never underestimate the power of a makeup primer – a good one creates the perfect base for makeup, and keeps it from sliding off even in the worst of Singapore’s heat. Cover FX’s Blurring Primer does all that, and more. The lightweight balm applies transparently and leaves a smooth finish that blurs imperfections, reduces the appearance of pores and fine lines, and gives skin a soft-focus finish.
Estelle & Thild Biohydrate All-in-one tinted moisturiser
As much as I love foundation’s flawless effect on my skin, it often clogs my pores, and I’ve been warned repeatedly by facialists that daily use will age my skin. But I’ve found the answer to covering my imperfections and giving my skin all the vitamins and hydration it deserves: Estelle & Thild’s organic tinted moisturiser ($63). For those who don’t like the feel of heavier ones but still need a major dose of hydration, this one packs a major punch as it protects skin from harsh environmental elements, reduces the appearance of pores and gives skin a natural glow.
Estelle & Thild Biohydrate All-in-one tinted moisturiser is now available at Sephora
Zoeva Sweet Glamour Collection
While fall eyeshadow palettes are typically filled with warm, earthy shades, Zoeva’s Sweet Glamour collection goes an entirely different route with both matte and shimmer sorbet hues in peaches, lilacs, blues and greens for dreamy daytime #motds. To complement your look, brush your cheeks with pink hues from the matching blush palette, and strobe your cheekbones with the lustrous highlighter.
Too Faced Hangover 3-in-1 Replenishing Primer and Setting Spray
This primer and setting spray does exactly what it promises – it primes, locks in and refreshes makeup, all while keeping your skin hydrated. A mist version of the brand’s bestselling Hangover Primer, it features coconut water as the main ingredient, so expect this to seal and hydrate your skin.
Pixi Rose Oil Blend
There’s a reason why Pixi is so coveted by Youtubers. All of its products are glow-giving, and enhance the natural radiance of its wearers. One we swear by is its Rose Oil Blend ($39). Made with youth-boosting oils (the concoction includes rosehip, jojoba, pomegranate seed and rose geranium oils), it deep conditions, refines skin texture, hydrates and leaves skin noticeably luminous.
Pixi Rose Oil Blend is available from Sephora online
Dr Jart + Cicapair
Got sensitive skin? Your skin will love Dr Jart’s new Cicapair Line. Made for regeneration and soothing of sensitive skin, it’s made with the active ingredient of Centella Asiatic (legend has it that Asian tigers roll around in this to heal battle wounds) to calm blemishes, inflammations or redness. Must-haves from the collection include serum to immediately soothe and moisturise irritated skin, as well as Re-cover, a cream which changes from green to beige and masks redness, as well as protects skin from harmful environmental factors.
Algenist Elevate Advanced Lift Contouring Cream
This ground-breaking cream boldly claims that its formula only takes 10 minutes to visibly firm skin texture, and 10 days to sculpt and contour skin. It’s all thanks to ingredients like tripetide-2 which provides fast-firming results, alguronic acid for improved cell regeneration, and gold to strengthen skin texture.
Algenist Elevate Advanced Lift Contouring Cream will be available at Sephora Singapore from October.
Ouai Rose Hair and Body Oil
Get glossy from head to toe with Ouai’s Rose Hair and Body Oil ($48). Great for the girl on the go, this fast-absorbing rose-gold oil doubles up as a hair and body moisturiser, and smells amazing, thanks to its infusion of rose, bergamot, lychee and white musk.
