The wait is over…day 293
Today was the day thousands of women in Mexico City had been waiting for—the grand opening of the first Sephora store in the country, and luckily for me it is 2 minutes away from our place at Antara Fashion Hall.
Goose picked me up towards the end of the day at the office and we headed over to Antara to do a little shopping at Sephora. I have to say that the architecture of the store is perfect and totally sets the mood by increasing the excitement. As you walk in through the main entrance, you are welcomes by a spiral staircase with an ambiance light tower in the center and the already famous Sephora patter on the walls and stairs.
As we reached the bottom of the stairs we were welcomes by several of the Sephora local and US employees who were in town to help with the “festivities” and to finish setting up. The store was packed, but the sales team made sure everyone had received the best service possible.
Goose and I decided to split up so we could shop around with no hurry. I purchased just a few items since I had recently bought a bunch of Dior makeup at Palacio and only needed a few basics that included:
- Naked eyeshadow set by Urban Decay
- Powder and blush by Bare Essentuals
- Lemon-Sage Body cream by Bliss
- Make-up sponges by Sephora
There were a few things that I want to try out such as the Bobbi Brown concealers and the Yves Saint Laurent Parisian perfume, so I will definitely be visiting them quite often. Congratulations to everyone involved and who made this “playground” possible.
