The Top Beauty Buys You Need To Get At The Sephora Sale

Beauty junkies, it’s time to rejoice: multi-label cosmetics giant Sephora will finally be having its hotly anticipated sale. All products (yes, new arrivals included) will be at a 20% discount for both gold and black card members on the 2nd and 3rd of May respectively. Additionally, white card members are entitled to a 10% discount from 3 May as well. If you are as excited as we are, here are some of our top picks you need to add to your list.

#1: Herbivore Moon Fruit Superfruit Night Treatment, $85
This superfruit-powered night cream works its magic while you slumber to gently resurface and nourish your skin. Not only is it packed with antioxidants including prickly pear and goji berry to fight premature ageing, it is also infused with papaya, sugar cane and citrus peel which have restorative acids to gently clarify skin. #2: For Beloved One Flawless Brightening Ethyl Ascorbic Acid Bio-Cellulose Mask, $63 for a box of three
These masks contain two powerful brightening ingredients known as ethyl ascorbic acid and brightenyl. The former is a vitamin C derivative that suppresses the formation of melanin and is capable of reverting dark coloured eumelanin (a type of melanin pigment that is usually either brown or black) back to light coloured pheomelanin (yellowish pigment produced by melanocytes). Brightenyl then soothes stressed and inflamed skin, as well as reduce redness. #3: Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask, $105
This is a five-minute facial targeted at busy women who have tired, dull and stressed skin. Formulated with a blend of kombu seaweed, red algae and lotus seeds that help to gently buff and refine skin, this revitalising skin treatment helps to comfort and reset the complexion. The result: smoother, more radiant skin. #4: Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Hydra-Gel Eye Patches, $98
Multiple sizes of hyaluronic acid are infused to attract and retain moisture. Each of the 60 gel patches contains marshmallow root extract to smooth and soften the look of fine lines. Caffeine de-puffs and arnica (a type of plant) diminishes the appearance of dark circles. #5: Pixi Glow Tonic, $28
This is known to be the brand’s cult product that accelerates cell renewal to reveal a brighter, glowing complexion. It contains glycolic acid to gently remove dead skin cells and a host of botanical extracts including aloe vera and ginseng to soothe, hydrate and energise skin. #6: Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless Foundation, $74
Made with a patented Infinity Milling Process that produces super fine pigments, this longlasting foundation gives a natural-looking, flawless finish. It is also formulated with snow mushroom extract, which is known for its ability to hold onto water, as well as blue daisy extract to visibly improve the complexion-dulling effects of pollution. #7: Urban Decay Backtalk Palette, $76
Inspired by the brand’s cult favourite Vice Lipstick shade Backtalk, the brand has just created an all-new palette (with the same name as the lipstick shade) comprising of eight nude-mauve, soft berry and muted rose eyeshadows on one side (that are all super wearable for every day and suits Asian skin tones) and four coordinating shades of blush and highlighter on the other. The palette even comes with a detachable mirror. #8: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Vanilla Quartz, $58
Enriched with ultra-fine, luminescent pearls that absorb and reflect light to enhance your natural radiance, this is the highlighter you need for that Insta-worthy, gorgeous glow. The multi-toned pigmented pearls adjust to your skin’s natural undertones and blends seamlessly onto your skin. #9: Tarte Chrome Paint Shadow Pot, $32
This contains over 80 per cent pure pearl pigments and can be applied using your fingers. It’s super pigmented formula melts into skin and stays on without a need for eye primer. #10: Jill Stuart Beauty Forever Juicy Oil Rouge Tint, $38
