Last week I attended a fabulous Sephora Spring 2018 media event held at Renaissance Hotel Downtown—where I had a chance to celebrate the coming of season, discovering some favorite finds from the new spring 2018 collection.
Spring makeup wouldn’t be complete without a pop of color! Needless to say, the upcoming releases are unapologetically bold and features lots of color, glitter and shimmer. Here are some behind-the-scenes exclusives from the event.
As always, exciting new brands were launched at the event – Boscia and Elizabeth and James, besides the other best-selling brands of Sephora, Too Faced, NARS, Benefit, Becca, Kat Von D Beauty, FENTY, Marc Jacobs Beauty and Cover Fx.
Being a fragrance enthusiast, I was excited to find Olsen twins’ private label, Elizabeth and James fragrance collection debuting at the event. The Eau de parfum will be available in two sizes — 50 ml and 100 ml.
Also, Sephora has just dropped new makeup palettes and celestial highlighters from Too Faced, Becca, Blackup, Cover Fx glitter drops and more!
Then comes the new Too Faced Chocolate Gold Palette. This is Too Faced’s latest addition to the chocolate bar family and is apart of their gold collection. The palette includes metallic foiled shadows created with real gold; shimmer shades with a high-shine finish and rich mattes to compliment the look.
Top three Becca launches to look out for this season:
- Ocean Jewels Eye Palette
- Ocean Jewels Highlighter Palette
- Becca Liptuitive Glow Lip Gloss
Kat Von D Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick was another highlight at the event. The collection includes 40 shades in three finishes (metallic, satin, and shimmer), and features a spectrum of shades, from nudes to brights, to deep burgundy to green to black.
Rihanna’s new Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick Collection will be available in 14 universally flattering shades, includings reds and nudes. I will be trying it on and will share a little review of the formula!
STARSKIN’s Pro Micro-Filler Mask Pack will also be launched next month. It combines the effects of micro-needling with cutting-edge EGF and stem cell cosmetics. This two-step mask pack is created with the concept of professional micro-needling treatment. It starts with a proprietary Hyaluronic Micro-Pyramid Filler, a nutrient-rich cream concentrate packed with hundreds of sharp and tiny micro-pyramids made of pure Hyaluronic Acid – a skin plumping and anti-aging superstar.
This is followed by a nutrient-rich Micro-Pyramid Melting Mask made from premium Bio-Cellulose that stimulates the skin’s natural cell turnover and regeneration. Approximate price: AED 170.
Also available in the Sephora collection are the almond, coconut and honey-infused hand balms. The good thing about these are that you can pop one of these travel sizes in your bag and say good bye to rough, dry hands. And it’s gorgeously scented!
So that pretty much sums up my Spring 2018 Makeup Wishlist! What’s in your list? xoxo
