Finally I did manage to convince my hubby (No way I'm going there alone after the horrendous cases of crime in Delhi!!!! )to take me to Sephora, Select Citywalk ,Saket for some shopping.
I was super duper excited to be there, until I actually spent some time at Sephora. I'd say everything is over hyped and over priced and I'd anytime prefer to get what I want directly from friends abroad.
Even NYX is so overpriced, the $5 stuff are being sold at over INR 500 , which means I pay over INR 100 for every dollar. Bad bad pricing I would say, very un-intelligent !!!!!!
But they do have a decent number of brands, not what I was actually looking for (read Urban Decay, NARS, Bobbi Brown etc etc etc...) ..yet...there is Sephora (in-house), Stila, Benefit, Burt's Bees, Crabtree and Evelyn, Soap and Glory, Dior, Guerlain, Shiseido, NYX,Forrest Essentials, lots of Perfumes and makeup accessories ....I was initially planning to get the Benefit POREfessional balm, and I knew it was about $30 but when I saw the tag of around INR2300, I was like wth..is this some kind of joke going around......lol!
Also, a staff at the store told me that they are going to get more brands in another 3/4 weeks so I thought maybe I'd wait and then see what exactly I would want to pick with my HARD-saved money ;)
Btw, I did get something to show you guys..impossible to walk out of the store without getting anything, no ?
And these are the ONLY two things I got:
- Burt's Bees Lip Balm (INR 400)
- Face it OIL CUT Pore Balm (INR 800)
.....Liking them so far, especially the Pore Balm...
Will review them soon..
P.S.: I found it really funny that they gave a handwritten bill..C'mon...Even my local provision store has a computer to print bills... :/
