Sassy x Sephora: Summer Approved Beauty Swag!

Sephora Hong Kong preps you for high summer in high style


It’s the season of reinvention and endless temptation. Long, hot days and slow, sultry nights… so it’s time to embrace the joyful and free spirit of summer in style! Of course, there’s the small matter of our makeup literally melting into our mocktails in this heat and humidity.

Wouldn’t it be great if eyeliner didn’t run right after stepping out the door? Or  foundation didn’t melt like ice cream? Or lipstick didn’t fade during the short tram ride to work? But don’t sweat it: Sephora Hong Kong has got you covered. When it’s a hundred degrees outside, average makeup just won’t cut it. Here are a few melt-proof makeup must-haves that can easily withstand office, gym, pool and bar and help you stay fresh and dewy all summer long

Primer Perfection

BECCA Resurfacing Primer (available online exclusively at


The key to long-lasting foundation is the most commonly skipped step: primer. Seriously, this stuff works! This creamy primer from BECCA is suitable for all skin types and ‘resurfaces’ the skin to create a fresh, smoother-than-smooth canvas for makeup that lasts all day.


Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer is another effective formula that minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines and can also be used without makeup to mattify shine.


CoverFX Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment (available online exclusively at is also a great alternative. This vegan, lightweight and mattifying gel primer blends and extends foundation while preventing and healing acne blemishes. Score!

Flawless Foundation

SEPHORA COLLECTION Teint Infusion Ethereal Natural Finish Foundation (available online exclusively at


This ultra-fluid moisturizing formula flawlessly melts into skin for buildable light-to-medium coverage, yet somehow delivers a no-foundation feeling. BECCA also has a top-rated product: BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation (available online exclusively at, which is water-light and refines skin for a healthy, soft-focus glow.


If powder is your passion, then try Mirenesse 4 in 1 Skin Clone Foundation Mineral Face Powder SPF15 (available online exclusively at This multipurpose pressed mineral powder foundation is smooth, creamy and doesn’t look patchy at all. It not only creates a flawless complexion, but also improves skin tone and firmness with prolonged use.

Beautiful Brows

NUDESTIX Eyebrow Stylus Pencil & Gel (available online exclusively at


Well-groomed brows frame and transform our face like nothing else but unfortunately, they tend to be a feature that’s often overlooked. The new waterproof 2-in-1 brow pencil from NUDESTIX is a quick and easy duo to perfect brows in seconds. The triangle tip helps with precise application and the clear strong-hold gel helps control unruly brows.


The new Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil (available at is another super-easy brow-filling and shaping pencil that gives great brows in an instant. If you prefer brow gels instead, then Perfekt Beauty Per-fekt Brow Perfection Gel (available online exclusively at is ‘perfekt’ for you. This clear mousse-like formula is sweat-resistant and glides on effortlessly to condition, tint and tame busy brows.

The Magic of Masks
