OK so if you’re a Sephora Black Card member, you’d be aware by now that there’s going to be a members-only 20% sale this weekend and it starts this Thursday, which is tomorrow. It’s the one time just before which you visit the store, try on as many products as you can to test them out and not buy anything. Then you go all out crazy once the sale is on.
If you identify with this, then hooray, we must be soul sisters. I can hardly contain my excitement right now, so why not just make a list of all the things I’m considering getting? Here we go (with bated breath).
1. CLINIQUE SUPERBALANCED MAKEUP
I tested this one yesterday, and love the way it felt on my skin. It blends so nicely onto the skin and looks so natural when it dries. Definitely need to get the shade Cream Beige, though I’ve just realised that the shades in Singapore don’t exactly have the same name as the ones on the Sephora US website.
2. COVER FX PRESSED MINERAL FOUNDATION
This seems very promising as a powder compact. It’s formulated without parabens, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, GMOs, synthetic fragrances, triclosan, gluten, mineral oil and talc. While not all of these are really bad for the skin, it’s nice to know that there isn’t synthetic fragrances, mineral oil and talc because these wreck havoc for me. Plus, with the crazy number of shades they have, ranging from pink undertones to yellow ones, and all colour coded as well, I’m very sure I’ll find one that fits me.
3. Dior Diorskin Forever Compact Flawless Perfection Fusion Wear Makeup SPF25
This is the foundation I’ve been using for years and though it has worked really well for me, I’m trying to search for alternatives out there just to shake things up a little. I guess it’s either the Cover FX one above or this.
