Sephora Australia Price Lists

Sephora Australia open their first store in Sydney this Friday, that’s just 2 days away! I’ve shared with you lots of exclusive snoops since the news broke they were opening a store here, and most recently all the Sephora Sydney opening day information but the one thing I haven’t shared is the price lists. Today, I’m breaking the silence.

We were told Sephora would be keeping prices comparable to their US pricing but no one has actually shared the pricing in detail. Price lists for the brands Sephora Australia will be carrying were distributed to media quite sometime ago but I’m publishing the pricing of the most in-demand products and brands now so you can go in on opening weekend and know exactly what you want to get. My pricing list shows the Sephora Australia recommended retail price in AUD. Continue Reading

The collection is massive, currently including over 200 items, and features everything from classic cremes to 3D appliqués.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Purple Ombre Nails

The new and improved Complete Salon Manicure by Sally Hansen made my list of new launch favourites in February. Since then I have been playing around with the overwhelming 42 new shades and have my first ombre NOTD to show you. Of course I chose to go with my favourite colour, purple, but there were so many choices it was hard to pick. Being my first ombre manicure attempt (and I did it in a rush) I think it could have gone better so I am going to distract you from my crappy paint job with a comprehensive review of the new line.  Continue Reading
