The highly anticipated Sephora at Starhill Gallery was launched with a big bang a few hours ago. It was a blast; imagine dancing girls, blasting club music, plenty of champagne & finger food, a dazzling display of makeup, skincare & fragrances and of course; the who’s & who’s of the society plus the media.

A mind blowing array of products……

The Sephora Story:

How’d Sephora get its unique name?
Well, the moniker dates back to the very roots of beauty, borrowing from the Biblical name Zipporah (Moses’ wife, an exceptional beauty) and the ancient Greek term for “pretty,” sephos (think: Persephone, the gorgeous daughter of the Greek god Zeus). These two words were merged to form a name that has become synonymous with beauty: Sephora.

Founded in France in 1993, Sephora was acquired by Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy (LVMH) in 1997, and opened its first U.S. store in 1998 in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood. Now the leading beauty retailer in France and the United States, there are over 1000 Sephora stores worldwide carrying an unrivaled variety of makeup, skincare, fragrance, haircare, tools, and accessories from over 200 brands, in addition to Sephora’s own private label.

Last but not least; my goody bag & my purchases (I couldn’t resist!) from Sephora! :)
