This Is The Beauty Buzzword Of The Season

For the glow-getters

It’s official. This Spring, almost every major beauty brand in Sephora wants you to embrace one key beauty look: a glowing complexion. Whether it’s in the form of hydrating skincare or highlighting make-up, these beauty brands want to give your skin a major glow that will put the sunrays to shame. Below, our guide on exciting Singapore launches from one of our all-time favourite beauty shopping meccas.

Cover FX Glitter Drops

Cover FX Glitter Drops in Aurora, SGD68

The brand’s latest drop — a.k.a. Glitter Drops — is made of magical unicorn blood. We’re kidding. But if you’re looking for an over-the-top dash of glitter on your face, décolleté, body or hair, grab yourself all three shades of the Glitter Drops.

If you’re looking for something more subtle yet still packs a shimmering punch, the Shimmer Veil, available in six shades, is said to be crease-proof.

Herbivore Botanicals Moon Fruit Superfruit Night Treatment


Power-packed with vitamin-rich antioxidants and exfoliating fruit enzymes, this overnight moisturising treatment not only keeps your skin nourished, it also clarifies your skin tone and texture for a fresh face glow the morning after. Plus, you don’t even need to rinse off because of its matte finish. The brand recommends applying Moon Fruit “mid-day to get a fresh face by date night”.

Natasha Denona All Over Glow Face & Body Shimmer In Powder

Natasha Denona All Over Glow Face & Body Shimmer In Powder in Light, SGD56

Forget glitter. Renowned make-up artist, Natasha Denona’s eponymous makeup brand infuses pearls and crystals to help you “find the light”. This All Over Face & Body Shimmer in Powder, available in three neutral shades, feels creamy upon application but delivers a hydrated, streak-free finish.

While you’re at it, don’t forget to nab an eyeshadow palette from the brand. They’re so pigmented you don’t even need an eye primer for major impact.

Boscia Luminizing Pink Mask


This peel-off pink-coloured mask is both a novelty and a skin-detoxifying ace. Rich in antioxidant, this Luminizing Pink Mask is formulated with Charcoal Powder, Calcium Montmorillonite Clay and Vitamin C to draw out impurities and absorb excess oil for a brighter complexion.

Too Faced Chocolate Gold Metallic/Matte Eye Shadow Palette


One velvety swipe is all you need for that incandescent glow moment with this one. Infused with pure gold and natural cocoa powder, the Chocolate Gold Eye Shadow Palette features 16 brand new shades — foiled shadows and creamy mattes! — and smells like divine chocolates.

We’re also copping these from Too Faced this season: the Chocolate Gold Long Wear Glided Bronzer, Diamond Light Highlighter, and the Melted Gold Liquified Gold Lip Gloss.

This Works Evening Detox Spray-On Exfoliant


City skin, you need this. The Evening Detox Spray-On Exfoliant, formulated with Salicylic Acid, works overnight to transform congested, polluted, dull skin into illuminated radiance. Spray away every night after cleansing skin.

Hourglass Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick

Hourglass Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick, SGD66

Get ready for megawatt high shine at the flash of light with Hourglass’ first highlighter stick. Available in five shades (Gold, Champagne, Pink, Rose Gold and Bronze), the Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick boasts of a soft-focus technology and a formula that adjusts to your body temperature to blend seamlessly into skin. It also contains Vitamin E for some moisturising benefits.

Caolion Pore Tightening Day & Night Glowing Duo


Tighten your pores in the day, then soothe and lift your skin at night! This two-piece pore care duo features a Pore Tightening Bounce Cream to hydrate and control sebum throughout the day, and a leave-on Pore Tightening Memory Sleeping Mask — designed with a unique shape memory technology — to perk and nourish skin overnight for a reborn, fresh complexion every day.

Tarte Chrome Paint Shadow Pot

Tarte Chrome Paint Shadow Pot in Fire Dancer, SGD32

This is your secret to a super eye-catching look, literally! The Chrome Paint Shadow Pot serves up mirror-effect metallic glam with its cream texture. For this, your fingers are your tools – no need for a brush applicator. The brand says “the warmth of your fingers makes the formula melt into skin without a need for a primer”.

Pixi Rose Flash Balm


The Rose Flash Balm is a moisturiser, mask and primer in one. Crafted to refine, soothe and hydrate, this rose-scented instant skin booster nourishes skin to reveal a lit-from-within glow. To use as a mask, simply apply a thick layer and leave on for five minutes two to three times a week.

BECCA Liptuitive Glow Gloss


Here’s what you need to conclude your dazzling beauty look: the BECCA Liptuitive Glow Gloss. This coconut-scented lip gloss reacts to the natural chemistry of your lips to enhance its natural colour with an unparalleled sheen. It also contains Avocado oil, Vitamin E and Shea Butter that nourish your lips to pucker-perfection.
