Staying at home means more time to pamper my skin. I’m back with yet another review of a clean skincare brand, and this time it’s – SEPHORA Collection! I’ve previously talked about how my skin felt clear and healthy with Derma E’s clean skincare range, you can check that out too.
Anyway, SEPHORA launched its Good Skincare line under their home brand SEPHORA Collection late last year. We’re all about clean formula nowadays and this range comes in timely to match our needs.
About SEPHORA Collection Good Skincare
The Good Skincare range focuses on the best possible balance between product quality, effectiveness, and sensory appeal:
Hydrate and moisturise – what’s the difference? Well, the Drunk Elephant F-Balm™ Electrolyte Waterfacial shows you what it means to do both! I’ve been using the F-Balm™ ever since I laid my hands on it, for about 2 weeks now. Being in air-conditioned environments most of the time dries out my skin big time. Ever since I’ve started using the F-Balm™, I find that my skin feels less dry and looks much healthier too!
About Drunk Elephant
If you’re new to the brand, Drunk Elephant (DE) is a “Clean Compatible” skincare brand founded by Tiffany Masterson while combating her skin issues. The products are made in the U.S. and do not contain the “Suspicious 6” (Essential Oils, Drying Alcohols, Silicones, Chemical Sunscreens, Fragrances/Dyes, SLS). DE’s focus is about biocompatibility, pH levels, safety, continuously making sure that active ingredients are at efficacious levels. The skincare line also seeks to remain respectful and always supportive of our skin’s acid mantle.
Fun fact! Drunk Elephant derived its name from a myth that says elephants get drunk when they eat the fruit that has fallen from Marula trees!
HAVE YOU HEARD?! Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) is finally stocked on Sephora Singapore! The highly anticipated brand, launched by Anastasia Soare, an icon in the beauty industry known for creating nearly perfect brows using the golden ratio method, is finally here! It was truly an honour to meet the maestro herself, the #QueenofBrows, during the launch party at 1880 last week, and I even got my palette signed by her!
ABH was founded in 1997 and was expanded to feature beyond brow makeup such as lip, contour and eye products. My favourite from the brand? The eyeshadow palettes of course! I am a fan of the eye palettes and I bought the Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette, the Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette and also, my favourite, the Norvina Eyeshadow Palette, which is also the one I’ll be reviewing here.
Just 2 weeks ago, the whole world stopped for Rihanna, as @badgalriri launched her very own makeup line dedicated for all skin colors, all undertones, from all countries. With foundation in 40 shades, skinsticks in 30 shades, Fenty Beauty was created and made for every girl in the world.
First things first, disclaimer! Note that this is not a post with sponsored products as I wasn’t provided with any and these two highlighters were solely purchased with my own pocket money. Let’s be honest here. I know that I have been reviewing a lot of products provided by PR companies and the brands themselves but I just want to put it out there that I share my most honest thoughts even if the campaign was paid or products sponsored!
My Fenty Purchases
*Back to Fenty Beauty* The two products that caught my attention immediately following the launch were the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife (seriously the world went crazy for this) and the Matchstix Shimmer Skinstick in Confetti. I bought them both with the help of a sweet friend who was at the press launch at Sephora ION.
Just as I thought that the liquid matte lip stain trend is dying down, Sephora manages to revive it with their newly revamped Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick! Get your lips covered with bold colour from AM to PM.
The SEPHORA COLLECTION Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick is a silky, long-lasting lip stain that glides on super smoothly while giving you strong pigmentation and colour. For all you ladies who do not have time, or simply do not want to do any touch-ups, this is the lipstick for you.
I used to explore the SEPHORA COLLECTION lipsticks and eye shadows. However, they didn’t interest me because they weren’t exciting enough to warrant a review, until I met these lip stains. Even though it says that it’s a lip stain, I feel that this works like a liquid matte lipstick instead for it gives you power-charged colour intensity in a matte texture.
