Sephora Holiday Press Event 2013

It’s that time of the year again – CHRISTMAS! I love Christmas cos it’s the season of giving! We had a preview of the upcoming holiday launches in Sephora and these are some of the amazing brands we managed to catch a glimpse of!

*~ New Brands ~*

Living Proof

Headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Living Proof is not a traditional beauty company. By using technologies from outside the beauty industry, Dr. Langer and the Living Proof scientific team were able to invent new molecules that led to the development of their various collections.

No Frizz Collection
Includes: No Frizz Shampoo, No Frizz Conditioner, No Frizz Leave-In Conditioner, No Frizz Weightless Styling Spray, No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream

Plenty of products claim to fight frizz yet none of them fully live up to their promise. In examining all the products on the market that claimed to guard against humidity and frizz, the scientists at Living Proof discovered something curious – they all contained the same key ingredients to fight frizz, silicones and oils. All of the products in this award-winning collection are silicone and oil-free and safe for color and chemically treated hair.

Percy & Reed

Aside from Living Proof, Percy & Reed is another new hair brand that will be launching. I was particularly drawn to their dry shampoo and conditioner as I needed more such products to add to my current collection.

Free Yourself From Frizz Set (S$50)
Includes: Smoothed Sealed and Sensational No Oil Oil for Thick Hair, Abundantly Bouncy Volumising Mousse, No Fuss Flawlessness Dry Conditioner, Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish

Whether your hair is naturally on the frizzy side or you are battling with the elements, this is the essential kit to fight back. The collection contains everything a girl needs to control and smooth frizzy, unruly and coarse hair even in the most humid conditions.

No Fuss Fabulousness Dry Shampoo Gift Tube (S$12)

Give your hair a beautiful “just-washed” look – even if you haven’t the time to wash it! The unique formulation soaks up excess oil and cleanses the scalp, leaving your hair looking fresh, shiny and shimmering.


Tarte is a brand I have always looked forward to and hoping it will be launched here. Finally it’s here in Singapore! The brand emphasizes on being eco-friendly, cruelty-free and has vitamins and minerals in all their products.

Treat Yourself To Gorgeous Kit (S$131)
Includes: 4 Creamy Liners, 20 Silky Eye Shadows, 4 Hydrating Lip Glosses

Treat yourself to this 28-piece color collection, infused with Amazonian clay and maracuja. Use in its entirety or break up into three individual sets for easy portability and gift-giving!

Moving on, I shall share some of the gift sets that had caught my eye.
