I had the privilege of attending an exclusive Sephora Brand Showcase yesterday and got to chat with some amazing people about the beauty brands they work with. VIP guests enjoyed chatting to representatives of the following brands, available through Sephora Australia and in the coming weeks I’ll be writing about the different brands and their products as I get to try the products.
Apart from the fabulous brands listed below, Sephora Australia have their own range of cosmetics and beauty products with a huge selection to choose from.
