SEPHORiA, one of Sephora’s grandest beauty events landed in Shanghai, China for the first time. From November 17th to November 19th, over 3,000 consumers were treated to exclusive experiences, playful digital interactions, and unique beauty masterclasses.
SHANGHAI, Nov. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — SEPHORA, the world’s leading omnichannel prestige beauty retailer, was proud to launch SEPHORiA in China. The first-ever certified carbon-neutral event of Sephora China, this launch is also the very first year this beauty event was held outside the United States and in Asia.
The Expo I-pavilion in Huangpu District, Shanghai, was brought to life by the largest beauty event of the year that featured 146 new products from 52 premium beauty brands, along with 12 masterclasses hosted by beauty experts from iconic brands.
Unique beauty experiences only at SEPHORiA
Over 3,000 consumers were welcomed into the beauty playground that presented four different sensorial zones – makeup, haircare, fragrances, and Skincare. These included a kaleidoscopic fantasy world that revealed Sephora Collection’s latest offering and a glamorous amusement park that launched Sephora’s “Next Big Thing” at the heart of the pavilion, also known as “Sephora Castle of Wonders”.
Apart from carefully curated assortment and professional beauty services in specially designed booths, consumers were invited to interact with brands up close and personal, capture precious moments at beautifully crafted social spots, and receive the most up-to-date global beauty trends, swag bags and beauty tips and tricks from famed beauty experts from iconic brands.
