It’s time to drop everything and brace our bank accounts because the countdown is ON.
Ever since Sephora announced they were opening a flagship store in Auckland, fans have been holding their breath to find out when they'll finally be able to grace the global beauty giant's spanking new store and haul out on all the Fenty, Huda and Tarte they can handle.
Well the wait is now over with Saturday July 20 slated as the date all our beauty dreams are realised.
The first 500 early bird fans to flock to the pre-opening from 7am will get a Zoeva Premiere Eyeshadow Palette ($49), alongside oodles of Sephora samples being handed out until the doors open at 9am. You can also expect coffee and hot chocolates in sustainable Sephora thermoses, alongside a crepe cart (paying homage to the brands French heritage) serving up delicious treats to those in line.
“Sephora Auckland will be a beauty destination like no other. We are so excited to introduce our renowned service offering, a suite of the most sought after beauty brands from around the world and a fun place for our clients to experience and explore their own beauty journey,” says Pedro Coutinho, Interim General Manager Sephora Australia and New Zealand. Expect the store’s design to pay homage to the retailer’s global brand by incorporating iconic black and white striped calepinage while staying true to the rich heritage of the building. For fans outside of Auckland, you can still catch Sephora's Beauty Bus doing the rounds to lead up to the grand opening.
So, beauty junkies, start saving those dollies now and we'll see you there.
