Sephora gives a nod to the 90s with some futuristic fun at its latest Fall 2017 preview. Held at CentralWorld’s Zen Event Gallery, the venue was bedecked with galactic glitters, bold colours and quirky metallics. From prismatic shimmers to everyday essentials, we got an exclusive sneak peek of the season’s beauty must-haves from Sephora-exclusive brands such as Tarte, Kat Von D, Verb, Too Faced, Hourglass, Zoeva, Percy & Reed, Ouai, Smashbox and many more. Here are the top 12 products we are most excited about.


From the Rainforest of the Sea collection, Tarte’s Color Splash Hydrating Lipsticks feature highly pigmented and moisture-rich, long-wearing lippies in 24 creamy shades that are said to last 12 hours. While we have yet to prove the latter claim, its buttery and intensely pigmented formula certainly glides on smoothly, leaving a bold finish. In vibrant blue marble packagings, these antioxidant-rich lipsticks are powered by H2O, regenerative lip-quenchers and algae complex.


They say, “Life isn’t perfect, but your hair can be.” Ouai’s latest products are definitely for those constantly on the go. We are head over heels about its Dry Shampoo Foam—guaranteed to leave no powdery residue, allowing you to hit the restart button and refresh your hair while adding instant volume and shine. The ultimate go-to for multi-taskers, however, is the Rose Hair and Body Oil. Infused with a silicone-free blend of nutrient-rich oils, the fast-absorbing product helps restore moisture and repair damage to both the skin and hair.


Becca’s Light Chaser Highlighter is the perfect marriage of kaleidoscopic colours and luminosity. Infused with pearls that chases the light for a dreamy glow, each shade is formulated to enhance your favourite features. Wear alone on the face or eyes or layered on top of your blush or eyeshadow.


These gorgeous and clutch-worthy Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipsticks by Hourglass come in sleek, gold applicators designed to be used interchangeably with the entire collection. But they’re not just pretty—each one delivers saturated, long-wearing colour with a satin finish, while its slim design allows for ultimate control and precision. With shades ranging from nudes to reds, our favourites include I’ve Been, a deep rose brown, and I Lust For, a peachy beige.


Who says that the “salt hair don’t care” look is only restricted to beach bum days? Verb’s Sea Spray transports landlocked hair to the sea, sand and sunshine with loose, carefree curls. With natural sea salt and smoothing moisturisers, this light mist creates windswept waves and breezy volumes.


Zoeva’s Basic Moment eyeshadow and blush palette unveils a nostalgic, yet modern selection of highly pigmented colours for timeless looks. The eyeshadow collection highlights innocent to basic hues, while the blush range includes a curated trilogy of universally flattering shades to sculpt and enhance the features.


Splash Hydrating Setting Mist by Algenist is perfect for lazy beauty geeks—its a serum and setting primer in mist-form. Alcohol-free, the product allows for visibly refreshed skin and longer lasting, luminous makeup. Key ingredients include alguronic acid (anti-aging benefits), algalyte complex (hydrating qualities) and a polysaccharide blend (sets makeup for long-term wear).


Fans may be familiar with Percy & Reed’s Eau My Goodness floral shine and fragrance spray. Launching exclusively at Sephora in August, its special edition A Walk in the Rain will feature a bright, yet delicate fragrance that captures the scent of garden blooms, freshly misted by rain. We expect this to be our next favourite mid-day refresher for beautifully scented and dazzling, glossy hair.


In case your hair needs a little bit more oomph, we suggest you try Sephora’s line of Hair Sleeping Mask. Designed to be applied to dry hair overnight, it comes with a range of targeted benefits that hydrate and repair your locks while you sleep.


It Cosmetics’ Your Skin But Better CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder claims to be your complexion perfection must-have in a compact. Packed with optical-blurring pigments that camouflages pores, dark spots and fine lines, it leaves your skin soft and luminous. With sheer-to-buildable coverage, its lightweight, talc-free formula also comes with SPF 50+ and skin-loving ingredients, such as hydrolysed silk and collagen, niacin and peptides.


Fruity blossoms and fresh water lily scents in one, Estelle & Thild’s Fresh Water Lily Body Scrub offers a vibrant, aromatic bouquet that feels luxurious to the senses. The organic sugar scrub gently buffs away dry skin and leaves the body lustrous and revitalised.


“Nothing is more selfie-worthy than a multidimensional ombré lip,” says Davis Factor, celebrity photographer and founder of Smashbox. The brand’s Be Legendary Triple Tone lipsticks highlight three pigment-rich shades merged into one for that high-impact ombré effect with just one swipe. We especially adore how silky it feels on the lips, and how it gives a brilliant pop of colour and a demi-matte finish.
