Stave the stress when thinking of what you should buy, and seek inspiration from our list of favourites instead.

Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Vitalizing Cream

[inline-shopcard price=”S$198″ title=”Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Vitalizing Cream” bg=”” link=””]Sulwhasoo has got us all pink with excitement at the launch of their latest collection, the Bloomstay Vitalizing suite. There are four products — a water, serum, cream and a reformulation of the cult First Care Activating Serum – but we especially adore the cream. Harnessing the antioxidant prowess of plum blossoms and yuzu, this lightweight cream guards against the pollutants that plague us city dwellers, while keeping our skin hydrated throughout the day. After using this cream, your complexion will be chok chok, as the Koreans say.

Tatcha Violet-C Brightening Serum

[inline-shopcard price=”S$136″ title=”Tatcha Violet-C Brightening Serum” bg=”” link=””]Vitamin C serums have been popping up everywhere this season, and Tatcha’s version makes for one of our favourites. This enhanced formula is a blend of 20 percent vitamin C to increase cell turnover and product from UV damage, AHAs derived from fruit acids to exfoliate the skin gently, and antioxidants to bolster youthful-looking skin. Touki, commonly known as Japanese Angelica Root Extract, is one of those star ingredients that is used to inhibit melanin production, curbing any hyper-pigmentation issues you may have.

Smashbox L.A. Cover Shot Eye Palette

[inline-shopcard price=”S$68″ title=”Smashbox L.A. Cover Shot Eye Palette” bg=”” link=””]Inspired by the diversity of Los Angeles, the new Smashbox L.A. Cover Shot Eye Palette is a combination of 16 different, highly-pigmented shades that’s perfect for your day-to-day needs. You’ve got cool tones, trendy warm shades, neutrals, as well as some bold pops of colour to create a full spectrum of looks, making this palette also extremely travel-friendly. The palette will launch in Sephora outlets come 21 March.

Becca x Khloe Kardashian & Malika Haqq Bronze, Blush & Glow Palette

[inline-shopcard price=”S$66″ title=”Becca x Khloe Kardashian & Malika Haqq Bronze, Blush & Glow Palette” bg=”” link=””]Khloe Kardashian is in the limelight right now, and while it might not be for her makeup collaboration with Becca, we’d like to steer the attention this way. Kardashian has teamed up with her best friend, Malika Haqq, to create a limited edition line of products for Becca, each helping you get closer to the bronzed, glowy look the beauty brand champions. Kardashian and Haqq have each created a face palette for the brand, comprising a bronzer, blusher and highlighters with Becca’s signature buttery formula. Each palette is universal enough to cater to a broad range of skin tones, so whichever you pick, just make sure you pick one.

HERA Sensual Intense Glaze

[inline-shopcard price=”S$43″ title=”HERA Sensual Intense Glaze” bg=”” link=””]HERA does it again with its latest Sensual Intense Glaze. This lightweight lip gloss delivers a high-shine pout to the wearer without compromising on pigmentation thanks to the Colour Jellifying technology the brand is so known for. The gloss melts on the lips, creating an even layer that stays put for hours — a feat near-impossible when you consider lip glosses. There are currently 9 bold shades available, from nudes to bold reds. You’ll be spoilt for choice.

Indie Lee Daily Skin Nutrition

[inline-shopcard price=”TBA” title=”Indie Lee Daily Skin Nutrition” bg=”” link=””]Indie Lee is a holistic skincare brand new to Sephora this season. The brand came to be because its namesake founder was diagnosed with a brain tumour that she believed was a result of using harsh, poorly formulated skincare, and so set out to invent a line that’s as pure as possible for consumers. We love Daily Skin Nutrition, a serum that nourishes the skin with sugarcane-derived squalene to hydrate as well as nourishing plant oils that keep the skin supple. Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid complete this cocktail for your skin, giving your visage a quick perk-me-up. Indie Lee launches 7 March on Sephora online, and 14 March in-stores.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye

[inline-shopcard price=”TBA” title=”It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Waterproof Concealer” bg=”” link=””]It Cosmetics’ beloved Bye Bye Under Eye concealer gets a massive shade range overhaul. The line has burgeoned from an initial five shades to a more inclusive selection of 24, without compromising on the full-coverage and anti-ageing benefits its dedicated users so love. The concealer will launch 23 May on the Sephora website and 19 June in-stores.

Tarteist Pro Glow & Blush

[inline-shopcard price=”S$80″ title=”Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow & Blush” bg=”” link=””]Tarte resurrects its Pro Glow palate, this time bringing blushes into the mix. Dubbed a cheek wardrobe for all occasions, users get four bright blushes, one highlighter and a contouring bronzer that’s pretty universal across skintones. All these come in full-sized formats, so you’re getting a palette that’s as diverse as it is lasting.

Beautyblender Bounce Liquid Whip Long Wearing Foundation

[inline-shopcard price=”TBA” title=”Beautyblender Bounce Liquid Whip Long Wearing Foundation” bg=”” link=””]Yes, you’ve read this right. Beautyblender now has a makeup range, and it includes a comprehensive foundation line that spans 40 shades. The barely-there Bounce Liquid Whip foundation is extremely full coverage and lasts 24 hours without caking or being uncomfortable on the skin. You don’t even have to use the Beautyblender sponge to make this foundation work — it does that no matter what tools you use. The foundation will launch in Sephora this 28 March.

Abyssian Hair Serum

[inline-shopcard price=”S$53″ title=”Abyssian Hair Serum” bg=”” link=””]Sustainable brand, Abyssian, aims to make haircare that is as clean as possible for the end consumer, with up to 99 percent plant-derived ingredients used in each product. Their hair serum is a favourite amongst users, given that it enriched with Abysinnian oil filled with fatty acids that nourish the hair. If you’ve got a mane that’s hard to manage, this serum could be your ticket to a frizz-free life. Also, Abyssian is committed to planting a tree for every product purchased, so you’re definitely shopping for a good cause.
