Last Friday, we visited the Sephora Fall/Winter 2017 preview, and got a sneak peek of all the unreleased goodies to hit the stores in the coming few months. We can promise you, there’s a lot to anticipate.
Every new season sends vulnerable beauty junkies into a frenzy thanks to the sheer amount of shiny new things. Before you succumb to your magpie tendencies, we’ve winnowed out the 6 best new beauty releases you should keep your eye on.
Here’s our list.
Zoeva stays on top of the eyeshadow game with another neutral palette release. The Basic Moment Eyeshadow Palette is a mix of cool, and warm shimmery hues, spanning white chocolate tones to deep granite greys. If you’re looking to update your vanity trove with something that’s timeless and versatile, this is the palette for you.
Becca has always been the queen producer of A-grade highlighters, and its latest Light Chaser range proves that there’s little contesting its pedestal. While holographic highlighters aren’t exactly new, Becca’s new formulation makes them trendy again. Available in six different shades that suit a diverse range of skin tones, each Light Chaser colour shifts under the light to reveal another hue, inspired by the reflective surfaces of a gem. If you’re not into duochrome, its Chrissy Teigen face palette is another winner, especially if you veer towards having a tanned or darker complexion.
Urban Decay’s Naked range has long been about the bare basics. Its upcoming Heat palette, however, brings a vibrant dimension to a neutral colour scheme that’s right on trend. Bursting with fiery reds, oranges and browns, this has won over our warm-toned loving hearts. Best part: It’s far more accessible for Singaporean audiences than the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance, or Morphe 35O eyeshadow palettes that have become firm cult favourites.
Matte lipsticks are slowly fading from the limelight as consumers are embracing glossier, sheer lips. These Tarte babies hit the nail on the head with their nourishing formula, enriched with murumuru butter, jojoba and coconut oils, as well as a high-shine finish. They come in an array of subtle shades that are perfect for popping on the lips on days when you don’t have an hour to get your makeup done.
Too Faced’s Hangover Rx primer has been a longstanding favourite makeup staple, especially for those with dry skin. Imagine our excitement when the brand announced a 3-in-1 product that combines a primer mist, a setting spray, and a complexion refresher. Enriched with coconut water, the Hangover Rx setting spray lives up to its name by being a quick problem solver for mornings when you want to avoid comments like, “Wow, you look so tired”.
Holly Thaggard, the founder of Supergoop, used to watch her kids having shaving foam fights in the sun on Memorial Day, and wonder why the foam couldn’t have SPF protection. This sparked the unique Mousse Sunscreen from the label, kit out with broad spectrum SPF 50 protection. It’s perfect for anyone who hates the sticky, cloying feeling of regular physical sunscreens, as the mousse formula is beautifully lightweight. It’s cosmetically elegant, sitting well under makeup, and contains nourishing ingredients like shea butter, cucumber essence and blue sea kale to enrich the skin as it protects. This is definitely going into our beach bags.
