The Beauty Buys We'll Be Adding To Cart At Sephora This Black Friday
#1: Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum, $114
A vitamin C serum is a must-have in every beauty junkie’s skincare collection and this is one that has been highly raved about – and for a good reason. It is made with a potent antioxidant complex of 15 per cent l-ascorbic acid, 0.5 per cent ferulic acid and one per cent vitamin E, as well as other formula-supportive enzymes and antioxidants to neutralise pollution, treat causes of environmental stressors and the damaging effects of free radicals. It also helps to dissolve dead surface skin cells and reduces the appearance of dark spots and wrinkles.
#2: Sunday Riley U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil, $56
Living in a hot and humid climate like Singapore just means we are more prone to oilier complexions, clogged pores and acne. Thus, this clarifying facial oil is an essential. Its key ingredient salicylic acid aids in tackling acne while milk thistle and cucumber seed oil nourish the skin and smoothen the appearance of lines and wrinkles, without leaving a greasy or sticky residue.
This comes with two different types of masks to help one achieve clear, radiant skin. One side consists of the Pores Be-Gone Mattifying Mask, which is saturated with volcanic ash to absorb sebum and reduce the appearance of pores, while the Get Glowin’ Brightening Mask nourishes the skin with a vitamin C and liquorice complex.
#4: Tata Harper Repairative Moisturiser, $150
Dual weight hyaluronic acid imparts long-lasting moisture for a plumping effect while an Estate Grown Beauty Complex made out of mineral and vitamin-rich ingredients provide complete skin nourishment. Buckbean Extract then helps firm and tone for an overall youthful-looking appearance.
Designed to revive and restore stressed and tired complexions, this five-minute facial mask is powered by a blend of kombu seaweed, red algae, and lotus seeds that works to gently buff and refine skin for instant radiance.
#6: Tatcha The Deep Cleanse, $55
This daily oil-free gel cleanser contains bits of natural fruit fibres to manually exfoliate skin and decongest pores. Japanese wild rose then helps tighten pores and smooth out skin texture while Japanese leopard lily controls excess sebum production and encourages natural skin cell turnover.
#7: For Beloved One Flawless Brightening Ethyl Ascorbic Acid Bio-Cellulose Mask, $63
When it comes to bio-cellulose sheet masks, one brand that stands out is For Beloved One. And one that you should consider purchasing is this brightening mask. This is specially designed for Asian skin that is prone to spots and sallowness as it helps to diminish pigmentation caused by too much exposure to the sun and improve skin’s overall condition. Ethyl ascorbic is a vitamin C derivative that is said to be the smallest in molecular weight, allowing it to be quickly absorbed into the skin and penetrate into the deeper layers of our epidermis. It also 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) to brighten the overall skin tone. Brightenyl then soothes and reduces flush and inflammatory reactions.
#8: Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate, $150
First launched in 2014, the reformulated version now comes with the brand’s ImuGeneration Technology, which helps to continuously generate new langerhans cells and enhances their strength through a triple system that supports skin’s inner defence. Potent natural extracts encourage and maintain the skin’s inner defence at high levels, even under extreme stress conditions while Bulgarian rose water promotes collagen production.
#9: Laura Mercier Blush Colour Infusion, $49
Made with micro-fine powders, this blusher starts off with a sheer wash of colour and when more pigments are added, it gives an intense colour payoff without looking cakey and reportedly lasts for up to 10 hours. What else we love about it: it’s extensive shade range.
#10: Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick, $76
If you love a foundation that gives awesome coverage, feels lightweight, is waterproof and blends like a dream, then this is one you should consider. It’s creamy texture glides and blends easily and its formula is infused with double the amount of pigment versus traditional foundations for instant full coverage with just a single swipe.
#11: Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade, $35
One of their most popular eyebrow products, this features a waterproof formula that doubles up as a primer so you don’t have to worry about any budging or smudging.
