When it comes to new launches, I’m excited but I’m also skeptical—unless they’re from brands that have proven at every turn that they give their best.
In the mix of everything that’s fresh, and considering how every other day a new label pops up, you tend to go where the curation is top-notch. Sephora PH has proven to be one of the authorities when it comes to this. Cruising through the website, I spotted a few new products from brands I’ve always trusted.
There’s the exciting Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Ultra Glow Highlighter. PatMcGrath is all about giving that editorial look to your days, without it looking forced or out of place. This new highlighter features a unique formula that is a gel-meets-powder highlighter. This is how it achieves a “wet skin” effect, with iridescent, powerfully pearlescent rose pigments.
You can use it on your cheeks, but also as an accent to eye looks and even on your collarbone.
With the way we reach for disinfectants and wear our masks, something like the Caudalie Hand & Lip Duo is a necessary luxury. Comfort dry hands with grape seed oil and Caudalie’s signature Vinolevure blend. This is topped off with grape seed polyphenols as protective antioxidants, and organic fair-trade shea butter to help repair and regenerate your skin.
The lip conditioner feels so good, with effects that last and truly nourish you with a blend of shea butter and macadamia oil. This is good to use any time your lips need a refresher, or even under your lipstick.
When it comes to making your eyes stand out, there’s the Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Brag Eyeliner + Mascara Kit. The Liquid Liner is beginner-friendly for those who need something to aid them with that perfect winged look. It is long-lasting, waterproof and dries to a deep black with a matte finish. You will love the ultrafine felt tip for its precision, tied in with the fluid formula that goes on smoothly and with no skipping.
The Lash Brag, on the other hand, gives full volume and thickness. It is also water-resistant so you don’t have to worry about smearing. The hourglass-shaped brush helps you catch every lash and deliver the mascara formula well.
Of course, a good liner and a good mascara will be best with something like the Fenty Beauty Bright Fix Undereye Brightener to help your eyes look their best. The product is designed to be worn underneath concealer, and is buildable to your needs. It hydrates, brightens, and blurs with jojoba oil. It also had a HydraBlend complex to attract and keep moisture to the skin.
If you’re into giving yourself ultimate skin-care treatments at home, there are a few to try like the Foreo UFO 2 Power Mask Treatment Device Mini. It’s a hand-held device that gives you the power of LED facials. It promises hydration, improvement of skin elasticity and a more even skin tone.
This is done through the combination of warming sensations, T-Sonic pulsations and LED light therapy. Designed to work perfectly with Foreo’s line of sheet masks specifically for the UFO, you can craft your personalized 90-second facial
