Dear ladies of Kolkata, we’ve got your favorite beauty brand and the world’s largest beauty retailer to your favorite shopping destination. Yes, Sephora is now open at South City Mall, Kolkata and we couldn’t think of anyone more gorgeous and city sweetheart Bipasha Basu to join the launch festivities. We urge you to come with enough time on your hands to get experientials and makeovers with Sephora beauty advisors starting now!
Speaking on this exciting occasion, Bipasha Basu said, “When I think Kolkata, I think big bindis, prominent red lips, bold eyes and a gorgeous bold look. It’s a city where art meets makeup and I can’t think of any other beauty brand that matches this synergy and vibrancy. Sephora is my absolute favorite shopping destination and a haven for beauty and makeup enthusiasts. I couldn’t be happier to launch Sephora yet again in India and this time in Kolkata with my friends and fans. I’m wearing the Sephora Cream Lip Stain today and you can try as many experientials too to get your favorite look.”
“We are very excited to open our first store at one of the best shopping destinations in Kolkata and are hoping that our most loved beauty enthusiasts and connoisseurs welcome us with open arms. With our vibrant store and diverse product range, we look to provide an unparalleled shopping experience and meet the beauty needs of all our consumers,” says Vivek Bali, Chief Operating Officer, Sephora India at Arvind Beauty Brands.
