As we ladies already know, Sephora is a wonderland of all the best beauty and skincare treats in one place. Shopping in their bright and inviting stores is an experience in itself, and many of us can easily spend close to an hour there testing out samples and admiring the shiny packaging of their palettes, lipsticks, and more.

But if you already have some products in mind, consider shopping on Sephora’s online store or mobile app instead. Not only will you get to avoid the hordes of other shoppers crowding over the latest displays, you’ll get to enjoy 12% off from now till 14 October 2019 if it’s your first purchase.

For inspo, here are some hot favourites to add to your wishlist. Read on for the promo code that’s exclusive to DBS/POSB Cardmembers.

1. Drunk Elephant NightBright Skincare Duo Set

Good things come in pairs, as does the Drunk Elephant NightBright Skincare Duo Set (U.P. $40). Comprising of a serum and face oil, this nifty pair will help hydrate and plump up your skin as you sleep – so you can wake up glowing the next morning. #iwokeuplikethis 

First, smooth a few drops of the facial oil into your skin – this doesn’t have to be on just your face, as you can also use it on other dry areas such as your hands, elbows, and neck. It works great on frizzy hair too. You can choose to apply the serum separately after that, or mix it in with the facial oil at one go.

Fenty Beauty needs no introduction. With a super diverse range of 50 shades, their Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation caters to people of all skin tones – 10 points for inclusivity. Its light, matte texture holds up well despite Singapore’s humid weather, so you don’t have to worry about streaks of foundation running down your cheeks. Plus, it has a natural finish that isn’t cakey.

A good moisturiser is just as important as a good cleanser, and Tatcha’s Pore-Perfecting Moisturiser & Cleanser Duo (U.P. $35) go hand in hand to rejuvenate your skin and minimise the appearance of pores.

Helmed by one of the most influential makeup artists in the world, the eponymous Pat McGrath cosmetics brand is one you’d wanna watch out for. They’ve got the usual range of makeup like eye palettes and highlighters, but we’ve set our sights on the Mattetrance Lipsticks (U.P. $59) for their creamy, non-sticky finish.

6. Sunday Riley Power Couple Duo

Not everyone has good genes when it comes to skin – I’m certainly not one of them – but you can certainly fake it with Sunday Riley’s Good Genes lactic acid treatment. Without the use of abrasive microbeads or scrubbing, this formula exfoliates and brightens up dull skin. Before that, though, you’ll want to slather on Luna, a sleeping night oil that aids in smoothening.

You’ll find these both in a beautifully packaged bundle that’s the Power Couple: Total Transformation Kit (U.P. $120).

7. Herbivore Rose Quartz Facial Roller

Rose quartz is pretty when worn as part of an accessory, but it’s also said to have healing and calming properties. Soothe your skin with the Rose Quartz Facial Roller (U.P. $58) from Herbivore Botanicals, which provides lymphatic drainage and detoxification with a cooling massage. The roller comes with 2 ends of different sizes to comfortably suit both the larger surfaces and smaller corners of your face.
