French beauty retail concept Sephora has paved its way to Elante Mall Chandigarh. City Beautiful is all set to become more ‘BEAUTIFUL’!!!
While French beauty and cosmetics company Sephora had already launched in North Of India with several stores in Delhi NCR, ladies who call Chandigarh home, you need not fret. You can now save moolah on special trips to Delhi to stock up your make up kit. The first outlet in the region opened in The City Beautiful, the weekend that went by! Sephora houses an array of brands from across the world, and it also has a brilliant selection of products from its in-house brand. Apart from known brands such as Lancome, Dior, Givenchy and Estee Lauder, look out for the exclusive brands they have like Benefit Cosmetics, Make Up Forever, Nyx, Stila, Soap and Glory, Burt’s Bees and more. You have over 200 brands to choose from, we hear! Plus, Sephora’s own in-house collection of make up and skincare.
A candyland of sorts for make up enthusiasts, you have clusters of products, for every look and pocket. Not sure about how a product looks? Try it out or get one of the resident make up experts to give you a complete makeover at one of the many mirrored makeup counters. Ladies, you’ve got to make a dash for this place, sooner than soon!
WHAT TO BUY?
We are stoked that Sephora stocks exclusive brands which they’ve brought to India, such as:
Make Up For Ever: known for their face primers and foundations. Their HD blushes and HD foundations are worth putting your money in.
Benefit: their lip and cheek tints, pore minimisers, and their range of They’re Real Push Up Liner – and Mascara are stellar products. Also you could shop makeup boxes from Benefit; it holds small packaging of their main products and are good enough to use until you get bored of them.

NYX: Easy on the pocket and a massive variety, you’ll go bonkers with choice making!
Burt’s Bees: for creams, lotions and body oils (mommies and babies included). They have some of the nicest mommy products apart from the regulars. You can definitely start with their iconic lip balm.
Sephora in-House brand: Lash curlers, lipsticks, lip pencils, travel containers, perfume atomisers. You can find the most amazing selection of Makeup brushes from Sephora’s own brand. And their professional line is worth checking out. The Sephora Pro Concealer Brush is highly recommended. Also the Classic Multi Tasker Brush!
Sephora’s own range of bath and body selection called Bath, and a similar one from Soap and Glory (try their Oats, Sugar and Shea Breakfast Scrub with some maple syrup fragrance thrown in).
Finally, nail paints from OPI and Ciate as bonus!
