THE NEWEST, THE LATEST, THE MOST BUZZED ABOUT-BEAUTY, BROUGHT TO YOU BY SEPHORA AND THEIR ELITE ARTISTS
ST. TROPEZ SELF TAN DARK TANNING MOUSSE
HOT NOW: DEEPEST BRONZE
Self- tanners used to leave us in the dark with off-colour blends. No longer: Introducing Self Tan Dark Tanning Mousse, the first St. Tropez formula which adjusts to your actual skintone. Its innovative combination of melanin stimulants and DHA recreates your skin’s deepest potential tone, naturally. The mousse smooths on seamlessly with a protective mitt, dries in 60 seconds, and thanks to its Aromaguard fragrance technology, never leaves a telltale self-tanning scent.
SEPHORA ELITE ARTIST – Christine’s PRO Tip: To slim my areas that could use a little bit of extra attention, I add an extra swipe of self tanner. Think: the backs of your thighs, the bottom half of your arms. The extra dimension sheds those last few pesky pounds.
RITA HAZAN ULTIMATE SHINE FOAMING CLEAR GLOSS
HOT NOW: DAILY SALON SHINE
We took an instant shine to this foaming, wash-in hair gloss. After years of clients requesting an at-home shine treatment between appointments, colour virtuoso Rita Hazan developed this gentle, everyday glaze. The first of its kind, this in-shower foam—spiked with B5 and silk amino acid—glosses over lifeless strands with a daily dose of luster that never damages your actual cuticle. We think of it as an in-shower treatment you can lather, rinse—and repeat tomorrow.
SEPHORA ELITE ARTIST – Gilbert’s PRO Tip: I recently experimented with my hair color…a few more times than I should have in a brief period. This enhancer took my locks from overworked straw to shiny silk in a matter of days.
NARS PURE RADIANT TINTED MOISTURIZER SPF 30
HOT NOW: TREATMENT TINT
Leave it to Francois Nars to offer a lush escape from our beauty routines. Inspired by the sumptuous flora on his French Polynesian island, Nars conjured this Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer—infused with Kopara algae, seawater, and vitamin C. It’s the first-ever blend to lighten dark spots and reverse sun damage while protecting skin with SPF 30. Its oil-free, hydrating formula sweeps on sheer coverage that actually improves your skin’s luminosity over time.
SEPHORA ELITE ARTIST – Gilbert’s PRO Tip: I always wear SPF, but if I ever catch a few too many rays on my shoulders or my chest during a Sunday stroll, I love to dab a little of this correcting and comforting formula on to calm my redness, protect and restore.
SEPHORA BY OPI GELSHINE AT-HOME GEL COLOUR SYSTEM
HOT NOW: AT-HOME GEL NAILS
We love how gel nails put up to two weeks of chip-free colour at our fingertips. So we patented a revolutionary at-home kit with a safe LED light that cures polish in 30 seconds. Even better: Its smart polish-removal wraps make for a simple and speedy 20-minute cleanup when you’re ready for your next shade. High tech. High shine. High five.
SEPHORA ELITE ARTIST – Christine’s PRO Tip: It’s easy to forget about your nails when your colour lasts so long, but I love to keep my cuticles extra hydrated by using cuticle oil on them each morning and night!
YVES SAINT LAURENT ROUGE PUR COUTURE VERNIS A LEVRES GLOSSY STAIN
HOT NOW: 3-IN-1 LACQUER
Yves Saint Laurent’s breakthrough new lacquer is on the tip of everyone’s lips. It’s the first 3-in-1 color to deliver the shine of a gloss, pigment of a lipstick, and persistence of a stain—all in a non-sticky formula.
SEPHORA ELITE ARTIST – Gilbert’s PRO Tip: For a multidimensional lip look, apply one colour to the entire lip and apply a second, slightly darker colour only to the center. Your muse? A freshly finished popsicle lip.
