Sephora Singapore Beauty Haul

Sephora Singapore Haul // Maddie's Beauty Spot

Over the last week I have been in Singapore visiting my boyfriend’s brother, and his fiancé. I of course, couldn’t resist going to visit a Sephora store whilst over there, and actually visited no less than four different stores! Heaven for me, since I have not seen one since I was in the States a year ago, and we don’t have any on my side of Australia (Although, whilst I was away it was confirmed that the Gold Coast is getting one in April via Seek hiring, and many reports have surfaced regarding a Brisbane store soon, though with no actual facts).

Sephora Singapore doesn’t have anywhere near as many brands as the USA one’s do, but interestingly, will have many of the same I would assume, that Australia has since ours is owned by Sephora Asia. A few notable differences I noticed were missing in the Singapore Sephora’s were Kat Von D, Anastasia Beverly Hills, IT Cosmetics among others. However, many brands were there I would assume are not part of our Sephora’s either, due to exclusive contracts with Mecca Brands (Urban Decay, Philosophy, Too Faced, Nars etc).

On to the haul! I made three separate transactions from Bugis+ Sephora, Sephora ION Orchard (The Flagship), and from Marina Bay Sands Sephora. Luckily I did, because I didn’t find the same things at each store. I didn’t purchase anything at the VivoCity Sephora.

Firstly, Sephora:

Sephora Singapore Haul // Maddie's Beauty Spot At Sephora Ion Orchard I purchased:

  • Tarte Holidaze Deluxe 3-piece set $30, unsure of Australian price as it is no longer stocked
  • Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick in Violet $20 on sale, this shade has been discontinued.

For my last shop I purchased:

  • Laura Mercier Matte-to-Metal Caviar Stick eye collection for a whopping $85, versus the $65AUD it costs here (although it is sold out here, hence the purchasing overseas)

Drugstore:

At Watsons Pharmacy I also purchased three items from the Wet’n’Wild brand I had previously only seen online as you can see in the above image with the Tarte item:

  • “Comfort Zone” eyeshadow palette $14.90
  • “I’m Getting Sunburned” eyeshadow palette $6.90
  • Eye pencil in Gold $3.00

In comparison, I found most items were around the same price e.g. UD Naked Basics palette for $45SGD and $42AUD, and Too Faced Chocolate Bar palettes for $75SGD vs $70AUD. Whereas, some items were excessively more expensive (Case in point my LM Caviar Sticks I went back for after initially leaving behind when I saw the cost).

There is a sneaky way to save a little money at Sephora: You can produce your passport to receive 5% off for tourists, and forfeit the 7% GST you can claim back at the airport (Although it is not really worth it, as they charge a fee as well, unless you were spending many hundreds of dollars). I stupidly forgot this at my first shop, which was of course, my biggest! Oh well, nothing can be done now.

At Sephora I picked up some great buys I had been looking for, like all of the Tarte packages, the LM pencils, and the Wet’n’Wild palettes, which I jumped up and down each time I found one.

I didn’t shop duty free at the airport because I ran out of time (You must purchase cosmetics and alcohol at least 90 minutes before your flight so DF can get your products to you). I did notice that MAC in particular were a fair bit cheaper! E.g. the new liquid lipsticks were $35SGD and regular lipsticks were $26SGD! Great buys I think.

Have you hauled anything exciting lately? Link me, as I love reading them!

    Such great picks! I totally understand the sadness of no Sephora nearby and always give my dad the longest list in existence (thank you for adding to the list too 😉 ) i’ve fallen in love with Wet ‘N Wild palettes recently, Comfort Zone is on my list too as they are so affordable! I’ve also heard such lovely things about their face masks! xx

    • I have tried the Green Tea sheet mask before and loved it! The Sephora mask so far is quite comparable to Glam Glow Supermud (minus the huge cost).
      What’s on your list?

  • I find that most of the Asian Sephora’s don’t carry many brands and the ones that they do carry are limited in certain stock. I think it might also be because Sephora is catering for a different demographic over there. Asian girls tend to be less bold with their makeup, so very little or no contouring, very neutral colors and lots of pink blushes and lips. Japan doesn’t even have a Sephora because it just wouldn’t do well there with all the other competitive makeup brands they already have! But awesome haul! DF xoxo

    • That’s so interesting! I never thought about it that way, but I didn’t see anything in the way of contouring, highlighting or anything like that. It’s funny considering that our Sephora’s are owned by them too.

  • Great haul Maddie!! I regret not picking up that LM caviar stick set! I already have one of the mini caviar sticks I got in another LM christmas set!

    • I’m too scared to use it hahaha. Also, it’s my birthday present for next month so technically I shouldn’t use it anyway. Which one do you have? My favourite shades are the lighter gold/rose gold shades!

  • Such amazing products you bought!! I want to try some more Tarte and UD products – you got some nice packs! I’m planning to hit Sephora in Sydney tomorrow and hopefully they have some good things there.

    • Go nuts at Tarte! I cannot recommend their blushes enough! Long lasting and great colours.
      I like my eyeshadow palette too. I’ve tried a swatch of the foundation and found it extremely thick though, undecided on that one.

  • Such a good haul!!! I am so jealous of the LM cavier sticks set! It looks stunning!!! Hope you do a full blog post on it! xx

    • Maybe I should do a post with a ‘look’ once I’ve played around a little bit?
      I’m almost scared of using them haha

    Amazing haul! I love those Sephora sheet masks and eye masks, they are so affordable and are amazing. I can’t wait to get my mitts on some Tarte products, that set you purchased looks like great value!
