Sephora S/S '18 Showcase

Hello Friends! I have just returned from a short trip to Japan (expect a travel blog soon). Once we landed, we rushed home for me to have a quick change of clothes for one of the most exciting beauty events for the first quarter of 2018! Be prepared for much makeup and skincare porn! Most of the photos are taken by me (the ones with my watermark) and I have included a few from the press kit. Thank to Sephora and Onedaydream PR for having me at this fabulous event!

This time, it was held at the lovely location of The Mint in Sydney. We were limited to 1 hour and so I had to rush through and take as many photos as I could. You can also see some of the Instastories I managed to film on the day, on my highlights on my instagram (go here @teacupofmakeup).

I will talk about each range in more detail once I have received the products for review.

I felt that there was an emphasis on skincare over colour products. The first thing we saw was the Skincare Bar. So that is where we will start, with Skincare!


Who's excited about Boscia? I am!

Caolion and Clinique have some very exciting products coming!

I was blown away by SkinInc. They have a multi led light gadget and the most amazing Oxy-recharge Bubble Mask!

With SkinInc, you can even customise your skin serum and choose a bottle design that you like!

A new and exciting brand coming to Sephora is Yuni! I like the whole "yoga" feel to it. They even have Shower Sheets! That's the founder there above Emmanuel Ray.

There are so many very interesting skin care products! Look at the Wei mask set above! It is gorgeous!

As you might know, I have an extreme fondness for Murad Skincare. It is all about connected beauty and I feel like Murad's team really care about their customers. I've been blessed to get to know Emma Hindmarsh from Murad and she has been giving me so much good advice about the cystic acne on my jaw line caused by a side effect from the many medications I am on.

Stay tuned for more on the effective and innovative new products from Murad.

I think it is so exciting that Sephora is making Laneige (a popular Korean brand) available to us in Australia. Laneige offers skincare and colour cosmetics.

The famous Laneige cushion foundations. Did you know that Korea holds the international patent for cushion foundations? That's why almost all cushion foundations are made in Korea.

I do love Farmacy and was able to meet their founder last year. I have been testing their products and so will have a separate dedicated post on Farmacy.

I'm excited to try the masks and cleansing balm from Farmacy!

I first discovered Arcona a few years back and am obsessed with their cranberry pads.

The lovely Bite Beauty was there too! See my blog post on Bite Beauty (click here).

How FAB is First Aid Beauty?? This is skincare that I have tried and tested and that I absolutely do recommend. Stay tuned for a separate dedicated blog post on this one. I attended the lovely FAB event held on the Island last week and it was a blast to learn all about their new products!

I'm super excited about the Coconut Water Cream and Ginger Turmeric Vitamin C Mask!

Of course, no event is complete without It Cosmetics! I'm a huge fan of their founder Jamie Kern. I can't wait to try the new Bye Bye products!</
