So finally, I have the chance to take out all the stuff I got from Sephora Press Day and I am so happy with all the goodies! If you don’t already know, I am a huge SEPHORA fan and have lost count of how many SEPHORA 10% vouchers I have redeemed over the past few years. I used to go crazy and couldn’t control myself every time I stepped into SEPHORA but things are getting better…I think.
Anyway as promised, I will show you what I received from SEPHORA press day. If you don’t already know, SEPHORA press day is one day where Singapore press get invited to preview and try out upcoming launches at Sephora — nail colours, eye palettes, hair products and the latest skincare essentials, before they hit the shelves next season. My favourites and some of the latest collections from the brands are all here.
NUDESTIX Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil
I got the NUDESTIX Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil, Blur Pencil and Eyebrow Stylus Pencil & Waterproof Setting Gel. Have to love the NUDESTIX Intense Matte Colour Lip + Cheek Pencil. The key difference between these and the existing NUDESTIX Lip + Cheek Pencils is that the finish is now matte where it was previously more creamy. These come in a crayon form which gives off a intense colour payoff. I got the RAVEN shade which is a dark burgundy colour that I adore.
Tarte Naughty Nudes Collection
Tarte never disappoints. Here they are again, coming up with 5 new nude shades for their ever popular Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paints (which I have both TBT and Namaste) and calling them Naughty Nudes. Tartelettes’ favorite full coverage, matte liquid lipsticks are in an array of longwearing, on-trend nudes & brown shades.
Tarte Lippie Lingerie
Just like the texture of a lip balm. It’s infused with a refreshing mint that is perfect for a midday pick-me-up. One swipe is all you need to deliver full coverage that lasts however along the day I found that the colour dies off pretty quickly as compared to the lip paints so I had to reapply a couple of times throughout the day. Best part: It’s vegan-friendly! Lippie Lingerie comes in eight different shades of nudes.
Permanent nude lippie collection features the signature tarteist creamy matte formula for high- coverage, wearable nude color with a lightweight, non-drying finish.
This vegan friendly formula delivers a rich, smoothing pigment while helping to hydrate & soften thanks to the ultra-concentrated, lip-loving mineral pigments.
They have also added an Amazonian Clay 12-hour Highlighter to their blush family that provides a soft, whisper light radiance. This shade compliments all complexions with micro, pearlescent flecks to mimic light bouncing off the contours of the face for a seamless strobing effect & overall awakened appearance.
Available from 21 JUL.
NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick
Getting all the hype are these NYX nude Lingerie Lippies which are all over youtube beauty channels. I am dying to get every shade available too! Coming to SEPHORA this September, I can’t wait to burn my pocket on them.

Containing 50% Milk Protein extracts, this White Milk Cream instantly brightens dull complexion and fights blemishes for milky white skin tone every day. It may also be used as the last step of your skin care routine to smooth out uneven skin tone and show off a milky white no-makeup look.
BECCA Backlight Priming Filter
More than just a primer, this is the secret BEHIND the iconic BECCA glow. Infused with three unique Filtering Luminescent Pearls, this lightweight, whipped fluid creates a smooth canvas and acts as an instant filter for a healthy, luminescent glow. It is also equipped with an instant Cooling Effect that helps to soothe the skin. The coverage is sheer and has a radiant finish.
BDB Brow Buddy Tool
Patented with facial symmetry in mind—and a desire to stop the cookie cutter brows, this is a tool that allows precise measurements based on each person’s unique face. This tool shows you how to shape brows unique to every face. The Brow Buddy and the pencil included in the kit are vegan friendly and never tested on animals.
Commodity Goods perfume set offers two premium fragrance collections that cover the entire scent spectrum. The Black Collection and The White Collection differs. The Black Collection is made of complex, moody and intense tones while The White Collection is made of bright, airy and easy tones. My favorites have to be Magnolia, Rain and Whiskey scents.
COVER FX CUSTOM COVER DROPS
Custom Cover Drops are pure pigments that allow you to customize any product in your beauty regimen and control the level of coverage. Available in 18 shades, Custom Cover Drops can be mixed with anything liquid: moisturizers, serums, oils, primers, foundations and tinted moisturisers to create that perfect canvas for the face.

This brand is finally coming to Sephora Singapore! Already all over youtube channels, this best-selling, award-winning, cult-favourite waterproof concealer delivers highly pigmented, long-lasting coverage that won’t crease or crack.
Your Skin But Better CC+TM SPF 50+
Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream + Anti-Aging Hydrating Serum
A colour-correcting cream that never creases
or cracks and instantly camouflages skin imperfections including dark spots. It’s infused with an advanced anti-ageing serum made of hydrolysed collagen, peptides, vitamins and antioxidants that works together to give you a more radiant, supple and flawless-looking complexion. I like how lightweight the formula is and how the coverage is significant.
Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Matte Lipstick
This innovative formula glides over lips like a gloss but dries into an ultra-matte opaque finish. Infused with a no-sting lip plumper and filler, Melted Matte ensures color always looks rich, full, and kissable. According to my friends’ reviews, apparently some shades were non drying and doesn’t crack whereas some does. Despite the reviews, this is still one of the top beauty items I want to get.
Too Faced Lip Injection
A lip plumper for immediate satisfaction and long-term results; this is a day and night use serum that will become part of your daily routine. The tingling sensation tells you it’s working and lips appear full and pouty from your very first application and plumper overall, overtime. It glides on as a clear gloss with light reflecting shine and supreme moisture.

Everyday neutrals and bright pops of color allow you to create a look that’s hashtag AMAZING! The palette includes rich, high-pigment shadows that offer true color payoff. I love the stickers selection that allows full customization!
Marc Jacobs Glow Stick
The Glow Stick imparts a universal glow that flatters all skintones. Unlike powder luminizers and highlighters, this fresh-looking cream fuses with the complexion for a healthy-looking sheen. The palm-shaped case makes it perfect for travel, so that you can say goodbye to cracked powder compacts.

GD Eau de Toilette
YG Entertainment, plans to launch its first iconic unisex fragrance GD Eau de Toilette which was created by moonshot and the brand’s muse G-Dragon.
GD EDT is a fragrance combined with citrus marine woody notes that evokes the feeling one gets when strolling along the beach while sensing the romantic summer breeze. Layer it on with another scent to create your own signature scent or its good on its own too!

Skin texture is refined, brightened and the appearance of pores is minimized over time.
Zoeva makeup brushes are one of the best brushes I have used. The bristles are soft and blends like a dream. The packaging alone is a winner with the light handles making it easier to apply products with.
Hope this garnered excitement for all the latest launches that will be coming to Sephora Singapore in a month or two. Even I can’t wait for these brands’ new releases. Will be back with a part two of my favourite products from Sephora Press Day.
