Sephora Warringah Opening Day and Haul

On Thursday 17th November Sephora opened it's fourth store in NSW and I was lucky enough to be invited to the Media Preview a couple of hours before the store officially opened.  There was a huge queue of about 500 people waiting to get in store (and get some freebies) and with a DJ playing the atmosphere was totally buzzing.

I felt totally spoilt to be able to be one of the first in the store and I had the best time playing with all the brand new testers.  We were also given a 20% off voucher to spend on the day so I couldn't resist picking up a few goodies.  I was so undecided about the Kat Von D Metal Matte Palette but I'd literally had a dream about it and in the end I just couldn't resist.  It's a beautiful palette but to be really honest it's not that practical for me.  I also picked up a Sephora single eyeshadow in Satin Corset No281.  This is my third Sephora single eyeshadow now and I've been super impressed with the shimmer range as they are so buttery and pigmented.  Following on in my eyeshadow trend I picked up the 3CE (does anyone know how to pronounce that brand name) Long Wear Eye Crayon in Pleasure.  I've never tried anything from this brand so I'll be really interested to see how this wears.

My haul from the day
The staff in store were super helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make sure I was assisted without being overbearing.  They also snuck some trial and sample size goodies in my bag at the checkout which always puts a smile on my face. 

My haul plus freebies
The opening of Sephora at the Warringah Mall was such a fun event and if you live on the Northern Beaches of Sydney I urge you to head over and check it out.  The whole mall is amazing and with a Sephora, Mecca Maxima and an H&M it's got everything I ever wanted all in one place.  

Where do you hope the next Sephora store will open?  I'm hoping for Adelaide because I used to live there and I know how sorely needed it is!

  1. Great haul!!! I hope the next store is in Adelaide. It sucks not having the Sephora online store stock the same products (eg today the Metal palette was released online and it's been instore for weeks).

    1. The Sephora online store is pretty bad, I can't believe how long it's taken them to get the MetalMatte palette online! I really hope you get a store soon

  2. Oooh love the look of that palette, apparently KVD shadows are amazing??
    My old boss is the Warringah Myer manager and I definitely plan on visiting the whole complex (including Sephora and Mecca Maxima) next time I visit family in Sydney!! Didn't realise Sephora was part of it all until I saw youe post though so thank you 😁

    1. The quality of the shadows is amazing Dustyn, I'll be posting a full review of the palette here on Thursday so keep an eye out. Definitely check out the whole mall, there's so much to see, there's even another Mecca in the Myer store.
