With every new year comes a little spring cleaning–and what usually follows right after? Getting a new batch of gorgeous goodies!

We’re well aware of how much I love themed goodies — the latest being Etude House’s Piglet collection. But we all knew it wasn’t gonna end there! Sephora’s just dropped some Lunar New Year themed goodies and long story short, we cannot wait to get our hands on them. Read on to find out just what they are!

Hourglass Ambient® Lighting Blush


The universally-flattering shade that leaves you with a soft-focus and multi-dimensional look, Hourglass’ Ambient® Lighting Blush is certainly the perfect beauty buy for anyone this new year. The blush comes in a limited-edition Vivid Flush shade, created by brand founder Carisa Janes herself, to help you celebrate the Lunar New Year in style.

Go easy on the application for a natural glow, or build it up to achieve rosy, flushed cheeks! What we love the most is that it’s formulated without parabens, fragrance, talc, nanoparticles and gluten! Above all, it’s cruelty-free, vegan-friendly and comes in an utterly adorable festive package.

Benefit Cosmetics Happiness & Bliss Set

The Benefit Cosmetics You’re A Lucky Star – Happiness set features the Goof Proof Brown Pencil, Roller Lash Mascara and the Benetint lip and cheek stain. It’s clean brows, wispy lashes and a healthy, rosy flush in no time at all.

The Dandelion Finishing Powder will leave your complexion lookin’ healthy and radiant, while the Ka-Brow Gel sculpts and defines your brows for 24 long hours.

The kit also features a solid blendercleanser® to accompany the iconic, original sponge so you can blend your way to streak-free beauty this 2019. If you’re the kind of person who loves collecting the different shades of beautyblenders, you’ll want to get your hands on this ASAP! It’s only available while stocks last!

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector™ Pressed Highlighter – Year of the Pig


Becca has never failed to give us that striking glow, and its newest release is no exception! The collectable highlighter comes in a soft, peachy pink shade that shimmers with gold and silver pearls. The luminescent pearl blend absorbs, reflects and refracts light to amplify your natural radiance for the perfect glow. 

It’s also imprinted with a charming little Year of the Pig design and packed in a limited-edition gold compact — perfect for your vanity! So what are you waiting for? Get your glow on, girl.

Sunday Riley Lunar New Year Kit


Put your best face forward this year with cult beauty brand Sunday Riley’s Lunar New Year Kit! The set is perfect for all skin types and certainly deserves a place in your payday splurge receipt. Furthermore, it features smaller versions of four of the brand’s best-selling products — great if you’re new to the brand and would love to try the products first!

The set features the newly reformulated Ceramic Slip Cleaners which cleans skin while leaving it soft, balanced and ready to absorb the products you use after. Up next is the Luna Sleeping Night Oil which works overnight so you wake up to radiant and clear skin. Follow with the Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment to deeply exfoliate your skin and repair the look of dull, congested and sun-damaged skin.

Top it off with the C.E.O Rapid Flash Vitamin C Brightening Serum gives your skin the vitamin C antioxidant protection that it needs. 

Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment Lipstick


The Lunar New Year is all about bright, burning hues. And that’s how just a slick of the Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment Lipstick in Flame will paint you.

This lipstick is infused with liquefied pigments with infinite matte colour saturation, which results in a lasting, weightless finish. The lightweight lipstick also applies smoothly onto your lips and therefore dries down for smudge-resistant, carefree wear.

There’s Flame, a bright red lip for the bold looks; Firework, a trendy coral hue you could use every day; Firecracker, a light terracotta shade for the earthy-ensemble days. All the lipsticks are dressed in a bright red packaging — we expected nothing less of course!

Givenchy Prisme Libre Powder – Mousseline Pastel n°1


A luxurious gift to yourself maybe? The Givenchy Prisme Libre Powder in Mousseline Pastel comes in a festive cover that’s decked out in a red and gold clover pattern that’s worthy of a spot on your vanity.

The loose powder, that’s oh-so-loved, comes in four complementary pastel shades that work to mattify your skin and boost radiance. Furthermore, it keeps any shine under control, diminishes imperfections (even redness!) for an even skin tone and leaves you with a porcelain-like complexion that’s lasting. Perfect for staying glam through all the gatherings and visits! So what are you waiting for?

Glamglow Gravitymud™ Firming Treatment Gold


Dress up your vanity with this swanky gold jar that’s filled with equally luxurious goods. The Glamglow Gravitymud™ Firming Treatment Gold has an innovative formula that peels off to reveal skin that’s instantly tighter and more lifted.

The marshmallow pineapple scented formula is made with Canadian glacier clay, liquorice and marshmallow leaf, which work together to help your skin’s contours feel firmer and look more defined. Besides that, the treatment is free of parabens, phthalates and sulphates!

We’re so excited to kick off the new year with all these exciting products! And Sephora’s newest additions for the Lunar New Year are definitely ones we can’t ignore. Since these releases are limited edition for the season, you’ll want to purchase them as soon as you can! So happy shopping and here’s to a prosperous Lunar New Year, filled with many new gorgeous goodies!

Lots of Love,
