Most beauty junkies would agree that there are two things that excite them the most: one is a beauty sale, and the other is a beauty launch.
Hence, we’re bringing to you what is possibly the most exciting news you could possibly receive: the revealing of Sephora’s most lust-worthy products that are coming to you in the first half of 2020!
We’ve shortlisted a list of 26(!) new or upcoming products that we think are absolutely worth your hard-earned money, so make sure to check out the newest releases and mark your calendars for those that haven’t arrived in stores!
1. Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette in Pillow Talk
If you haven’t already heard, Charlotte Tilbury is launching a makeup collection in the universally-flattering Pillow Talk shade! While we know that you would like to covet everything in the collection, a limited budget means having to pick favourites, which is not exactly anyone’s favourite activity.
Hence, we’ve helped you to pick out the ones that you must get your hands on, which of course includes the star product – the Instant Eye Palette in Pillow Talk.
The gorgeous palette contains 12 rosy and golden shades in a mix of intense matte and metallic pearl finishes. The latter contains Diamond Powder, which adds a luminous, natural-looking glow to your eyes, whereas the soft mattes contain silicones and emollient oils for smoother blending.
We suspect that you’ll hit pan on the nude Pillow Talk shade pretty fast, as you can easily mix it with a brown for daily wear or a deep maroon when you want to glam it up!
Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette in Pillow Talk currently retails at SGD130 in Sephora.
2. Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Eyeliner in Pillow Talk
Black eyeliner is so yesterday – swap out your old eyeliner for this brand new liner from Charlotte Tilbury that comes in a smokey berry-brown shade!
The sultry shade, together with the easy-to-blend and long-lasting formula will definitely win your heart. You can even use this as a waterline to create naturally bigger eyes, thanks to the fact that this pencil is both waterproof and smudge-proof!
Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette in Pillow Talk currently retails at SGD42 in Sephora.
3. Jill Stuart Bloom Mix Blush Compact
We’re already in love with this beautiful blush compact, thanks to its beautiful packaging that looks gorgeous on any vanity table – the bejewelled cover, together with a brush that comes with a Swarovski rhinestone attached, makes this new product a must-have if you’re a sucker for packaging.
There are 5 complementary shades of this blush powder in each compact, which you can freely mix together to create your ideal blush shade. Each combination of colours is guaranteed to leave your cheeks blooming with a radiant glow reminiscent of spring.
In addition, although this is meant to be blush powder, the essence-in-base makes this feel moist and comfortable, as though the blush colour is melting into your skin. The colour blends easily onto skin, so you don’t have to worry about sporting the same red cheeks as Pikachu.
P.S. Did we also mention that it comes with a Crystal Floral Bouquet Fragrance so that your cheeks will smell as amazing as they look?
Jill Stuart Bloom Mix Blush Compact currently retails at SGD50 in Sephora.
4. Jill Stuart Rouge Crystal Carat (Prettiest packaging!)
Lip glosses are going to be one of the hottest lip trends this year, so you want to make sure that you’re well-armed with the latest lip glosses that will give you a shiny and luscious pout.
While lip glosses of the past are sticky and non-lasting, Jill Stuart is shaking things up with the new Rouge Crystal Carat, a long-lasting lip gloss for the ultimate glow-up, most vibrant colours, and comfortable long wear you’ve always dreamed about.
Whether you prefer lighter nudes that bring our your natural lip colour, or darker reds that plump your lips, you’ll love the bright sheen that comes with every shade, thanks to an emollient ingredient that reflects light.
Each lip gloss is also adorned with the brand’s signature Swarovski rhinestone for extra sparkle – consider us sold!
Jill Stuart Bloom Mix Blush Compact will retail at SGD40 in Sephora from 4 June 2020 onwards.
5. Nudestix Magnetic Plush Paint
K-beauty is big on nude shades and multi-purpose products, which served as inspiration for this new time-saving paint from Nudestix.
This multi-purpose paint boasts a feather-light, velvet texture that feels good on the skin, as well as a skin-loving formula consisting of 8 natural extracts, sans the nasties.
Our personal favourite shades are Bahama Mama, Hot Paprika, and Waikiki Rose – these range from nude to brick red and are very wearable for daily use, no matter whether you are applying it on your lips, cheeks, or eyes!
Nudestix Magnetic Plush Paint currently retails at SGD42 in Sephora.
6. Tatcha The Liquid Silk Canvas
Dealing with makeup that wears off or melts away is a very real problem we face in Singapore, but luckily for us, Tatcha has launched a primer that will give you an amazing finish for as long as you need.
This is a priming balm with pressed silk that smooths and preserves the look of makeup. In addition, the primer is formulated with hydrating and nourishing ingredients to your skin a boost while it seals in your makeup for the whole day.
A little will go a long way with this, so just take a little product to apply on the face, eyes, and lips, and you’ll get a matte finish that allows the rest of your makeup to go on top easily.
Tatcha The Liquid Silk Canvas currently retails at SGD76 in Sephora.
7. Becca Light Shifter Brightening Concealer
Many beauty junkies are in love with Becca’s highlighters (we know we are!), and the good news is that the brand has launched a concealer formulated with the same Light Shifting Pigments to brighten all those dark circles!
Becca’s new Light Shifter Brightening Concealer can be used to conceal blemishes, brighten your undereye area, and even works as a highlighter that adds a natural shine to the high points of your face. If you notice that your skin is starting to look a little dull by mid-day, simply use this concealer to touch up and refresh your makeup.
Aside from giving you the look of dewy skin, the Light Shifter Brightening Concealer is also infused with Hyaluronic Acid, Crystalized Licorice, and Green Tea – ingredients that take care of your skin so that you can eventually sport a healthy glow from within!

Too many eyeshadow palettes? Never!

Inspired by actual Born This Way Foundation shades, this palette contains 16 shades that range from fair-skinned glistening snow and seashell to richer truffle and cocoa. Each matte is paired with a shimmery metallic in the exact same shade, so you have the freedom to try different shades and finishes without looking too OTT.

13. Velour Beauty The #LOTD Collection – Lash Style ‘Caption This’ (Online exclusive!)
Even if eyelash extensions are not your thing, you don’t have to settle for short and lifeless lashes.
Sephora Singapore has brought in an online-exclusive brand called Velour Lashes, which offers 100 per cent cruelty-free lashes that are made for beginners and can be worn up to 10 times. These lashes come in a variety styles: natural, medium density, or dramatic volume.
What’s even better is the fact that these falsies are made with beginners in mind – the thin, comfort-fit lash band found on all the lashes are meant to make the application much easier than typical falsies, so it doesn’t take much time or skill to get your lash game on in the morning.
Velour Beauty The #LOTD Collection – Lash Style ‘Caption This’ will retail at SGD23 in Sephora from 17 March 2020 onwards.
14. Natasha Moor Silk Suede Lipstick (Online exclusive!)
Another exciting brand that’s coming to Sephora is Natasha Moor, an eponymous lipstick brand from a professional makeup artist who wanted to create lipstick shades that would flatter women with darker skin tones.
The Silk Suede Lipstick is a semi-matte, satin-finish lippie that boasts comfortable wear and flattering shades.
The true beauty of these lipsticks, however, lies in its clever packaging – it is ergonomically designed with a push release button and mirror so that you don’t have to fumble with the cap or hunt high and low for a mirror!
Natasha Moor Silk Suede Lipstick currently retails at SGD38 in Sephora.
15. Drunk Elephant F-Balm™ Electrolyte Waterfacial (Highly-anticipated!)
Drunk Elephant fans, here’s the good news you’ve been waiting for!
If you’ve seen the multiple glowing reviews this cooling, hydrating overnight mask has received, you can now purchase this in Singapore and find out for yourself if it really is as amazing as the reviews say.
Made with a blend of hydrating ingredients (including niacinamide, sodium PCA, plant squalane, five forms of ceramides, omega fatty acids and powerful antioxidants), the F-Balm is said to plump your skin while restoring its natural barrier. It can even improve damaged skin, uneven skin tone, and bumpy skin texture!
We won’t be surprised if this sells out soon, judging from the 5-star ratings that it has garnered so far since its recent launch in Singapore, so we highly recommend that you get this ASAP.

16. Pai Skincare Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil (Online exclusive!)
Indie organic skincare brand Pai Skincare has made its way to our shores as well, and we’re stoked that they’ve brought their best-seller, the Rosehip Bioregenerate Oil!

Think it sounds too incredulous? The only way to find out whether these are just tall claims is to put it to the test yourself!
Alpha-H Hyaluronic 8 currently retails at SGD44 in Sephora.
19. Dr Roebucks Ningaloo Copper Peptide Firming Serum
This six-ingredient serum was almost wiped out completely by beauty junkies when it was first launched, and now you get to call first dibs on this before it possibly sells out again.
The 100 percent natural, water-based serum targets dehydration, which is one of the biggest culprits behind visible signs of ageing.
Using a combination of copper peptide, plant-based hyaluronic acid, and Australian banksia flower, the concentrated formula delivers much-needed hydration to smoothen out fine lines and wrinkles while adding a youthful glow to once-dull skin.
Dr Roebucks Ningaloo Copper Peptide Firming Serum currently retails at SGD93 in Sephora.

Enriched with collagen-boosting Vitamin C and Ferulic Acid, this powerful yet soothing cleansing water removes impurities from your skin, protects your skin barrier, and gently exfoliates so that you get revitalised and bright skin over time.
