If you’re at all into beauty blogs and reviews, you’ve…
It only seemed fitting to have the Sephora Spring/Summer 2016 preview on a day that definitely felt like spring in Toronto. Brands repped were Sephora Collection including the new Minnie Mouse, Kat Von D, Marc Jacobs, Tarte, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Derek Crosby, Fresh, Laneige, Kate Somerville and Formula X nail. Now I wasn’t able to get photos of everything, but I think I captured everything I saw below. Enjoy!
SEPHORA COLLECTION TOOLS & ACCESSORIES
As soon as I walked in, there was a HUGE display of makeup bags, hair accessories, tools, makeup, skincare and more. It was overwhelming and I for sure did not capture it all but here are some highlights. The theme for spring is called Lipstick Jungle and it features bright patterns and, in some cases, pineapples!
Some items shown above:
Shine Only From Within Blotting Paper Compact ($10)
Heart-to-Heart Makeup Sponges ($10)
Dry Revive Dry Body Brush ($18)

You’ll notice some brushes on the right, those are new, plus there is a new dry brush cleansing spray. And they’ve added a lot more to their ask line including lip masks, eye masks and hand masks!
SEPHORA COLLECTION MAKEUP
Now most of the makeup was at the other end of the table but there was a crowd and I skipped past. I did, however, stop at these two Correct + Conceal palettes from the Sephora Pantone collection. I believe these are up on the US site already.
Colourful Eyeshadow – 115 shades ($16)
I <3 Cushion Eyeliner Kit ($23)
Wonderful Cushion Glowy Natural Finish Cushion Foundation in 6 shades – ($30)
Bright Future Colour Correctors ($18)
Perfection Mist Blush ($25)
SEPHORA x MINNIE MOUSE
Available in April, this collection includes an eyeshadow palette, brush kit, blush, mirror, lipstick and liquid liners.
The eyeshadow palette has 20 Sephora shadows in different shades and formulas. Pigmentation is good as is texture!
And you can pop the shadow tray out and use the case as a clutch!
The mirror is a cute little Minnie bow in gold and comes with a pouch. There’s also a cream red lipstick with a Minnie Mouse imprinted on the tip.
Two felt-tip liners, one blush and a killer brush set with Minnie Mouse bow stand. Sadly, I don’t have prices on these yet but stay tuned!
KAT VON D
There was a small Kat Von D station featuring her Lock-It Foundation/Beautyblender kit ($60) and these new Lock-It Colour Correcting Eyeshadow Primers in 5 shades! If you follow me on IG, you know there are Shade + Light shadow trios too. I was hoping to see those at the preview but no luck there.
MARC JACOBS BEAUTY
There was quite a bit going on at this stop on my Sephora journey, but I didn’t snap good photos of everything. There is a new Ultra-Skinny Fineliner which is essentially the Highliner in twist-up form (already available), 3 new mascaras: Velvet Noir, Featherlight for bottom lashes and a gold glitter top coat, 5 new shades of nail polish in pastels and off whites, and there’s also the 3 mini Highliner set (also available now).
The Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme will have 5 new shade extensions including this gorgeous deep burgundy shade called Editrix.
AND… Colour Correcting Primer Sticks that look like deodorant. These have a marble design and are really quite creamy and pigmented.
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS
Lots of news here! The single shadows will be available starting in March (I think the girl said 80 shades). AND we’re getting the rest of the Liquid Lipstick shades soon too, 21 shades including Sepia and Veronica.
There’s a gorgeous ABH cream concealer coming and I’m in love. It’s super creamy and feels like silk on the skin, coming in 16 shades for $25 CAD each. If you look on the right side of this pic, you’ll notice some liners… those are metallic!
DEREK LAM 10 CROSBY
During the holidays, there was a 10 fragrance sample set of this new line which are now available in two large format sizes at all Sephora store. My faves are 2am Kiss and Blackout.
FORMULA X NAIL
Lots of new shades are coming for the sheer, full strength and regular line, and new treatments too like The Fix.
We got to play around with the new Sephora Virtual Artist app which is available on iPhone/iPad as an app but also works beautifully in your browser. This uses the Modaface technology we’ve seen before (a Toronto company!) and really does let you try on makeup in real time!
Even more brands were there (and I can’t talk about Tarte’s release until Feb 16). Here’s the d/l on the rest:
- Fresh now has a Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream
- Laneige will release a Water Bank sheet mask and White Plus Sleeping Mask capsules
- Kate Somerville has a new Goat Milk line that includes cream and a depuffing stick
I’m pretty excited, are you? I have a lot on my wishlist (like, all of it?) but I will defintely start with the Marc Jacobs deodorant-looking colour sticks, KVD eye primers, Sephora cushion foundation and lip masks and ALL that Minnie Mouse stuff!
