When it was announced that Sephora was coming to Australia, every Australian beauty addict was like this...
But since they've come to Australia they've managed to piss off quite a few beauty lovers. They currently only have 1 store in Australia, low stock instore, no online store, they don't have their VIB program up and running and now they've signed an exclusivity contract with Beautyblender.
As of the 1st of August, Sephora will be the only business to sell Beautyblender products in Australia. For anyone outside of Sydney, the only way you'll be able to purchase Beautyblender products is to either make a very expensive trip to Sydney or try and purchase online from overseas. I'm not sure if places like Luxola will have restrictions on shipping Beautyblender products to Australia as some brands have this when they're exclusive to stores.
Many small Australian online retailers will be effected by this exclusivity agreement. If you're wanting to support these brands, buy up big and order from them before they're no longer able to sell BB any longer.
Here's a list of online stores that you can support and purchase BB products from.
I've heard that the online stockists had no prior notification of this agreement and were just told they weren't able to order anymore stock, so some of these online stores have a small amount of stock left or are sold out of some of the BB products.
I've already purchased a BB from Ry.com.au as well as their solid cleanser and I'm tempted to purchase more!
What are your thoughts about this? Have you been to the Sydney Sephora? Did it live up to your expectations?Amy, XO
PS Beautyblender just released this amazing product. I can't wait for my hubby to go overseas so I can force him to go to Sephora to buy one for me ;)
