Note: Sephora Hong Kong has been closed since March 2010
I’m a little late with this bit of happy news for beauty lovers but Sephora is finally open in Hong Kong! When I was last in Hong Kong, I saw the facade of the store which was still under renovation.
The store was opened on Sept 23 and I’ve just stumbled on it. Better late than never eh? 🙂
Sephora as many of us are aware, is a huge cosmetics store that sells cosmetics and skincare from many high end brands. While many of us may be familiar with the USA online Sephora store, you might not realise that Sephora is actually from Paris, France.
I browsed the Sephora Hong Kong website and was quite gratified that they are carrying a TON of brands, including those previously unavailable in Hong Kong e.g. Stila! However, a quick browse through the brand list tells me that there still many more brands missing from the list and the list seems to mainly consist of perfumes and skincare brands. Sephora does not look to be the place to go for the Asian brands though so I cannot see Sasa and Bonjour getting threatened just yet.
Still, for us in the South East Asian region, Sephora Hong Kong will be the cloest we will get to shopping at the store we always read about online. I would probably visit it if I go to Hong Kong again, but I doubt I’ll be buying anything from it that I can’t get at any other department store elsewhere.
You can read about its opening here and Sephora Hong Kong is located at Mong Kok (near the Mongkok MTR exit onto Sai Yeung Choi Street South.
Address: Hollywood Plaza, 610 Nathan Road, Mong Kok, Kowloon (entrance on Sai Yeung Choi Street South, opposite Broadway Cinema).
