Sephora is a treasure trove for anyone who steps foot in its stores. Leaving the mecca of cosmetics without purchasing anything is almost an act of treachery to all makeup enthusiasts (a bit of an exaggeration, I know… but well, it is what it is gaisss). The minute you enter, you eyes begin scanning the racks of cosmetics screaming at you, luring you to touch ’em and feel ’em. Before you know it, you’re at the cashier counter, lined up with a handful of items you never even planned to get! Well, lemme tell you, the temptation is real and defo unbearable, ladies.
Often, we are guilty of splurging when it comes to Sephora – the items are THAT amazing. So with the year-end haul currently on at Sephora, you won’t feel bad when you grab everything in sight! Here are some must-haves for all you beauty queens out there!
The Original Photo Finish Smooth and Blur Oil Free Primer
First things first ladies: primer is the most important and essential product for a flawlessly smooth finish! Being in a humid country, it’s vital to opt for an oil-free primer that keeps your make-up on for long, especially making sure your make-up doesn’t melt away with our scorching weather.
A beautiful, silky primer with a soft, velvety texture that’s packed with vitamins A and E. Instantly blurs imperfections, nourishes skin, and prolongs the look and feel of makeup.
MAC’s Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
A must-have for all our Asian dearies. This powder is an absolute holy grail for its versatility. Want a quick fix when you’re rushing out? (TICKED). Need to bake your face for a matte finish? (TICKED). Aiming for a smooth flawless finish (TICKED)! Tell me what this powder can’t do, because it’s true to our skin colour, doesn’t oxidise to a darker shade, or leave a whitish finish…
MAC’S Best Seller just perfectly smoothens your skin, conceals your blemishes lightly, and enhances your overall natural look without feeling heavy on your skin.
