Finally Sephora make their entrance to Indonesia. It have been long time ago since we see the banner at couple of malls at Jakarta. I first time see Sephora "coming soon" banner on one of unopened store at Plaza Indonesia Jakarta. Sephora Indonesia first store opened 12 July 2014 at Plaza Indonesia, Jakarta. I am so sad that I can't join the hype since I was at Bali during that time.

I visit Sephora first day I am back to Jakarta and it's kinda disappointing. Most of the brand at Sephora is brand that has existed at Indonesia before like Benefit, Anna Sui, Glam Glow, Guerlain, etc. I have guessed it actually, even Sephora Singapore and Malaysia haven't complected yet, I can't find Anastasia Beverly Hills or Lorac there.
What They Have Right Now
From what I see, there is only 3 new brand that never exists before at Indonesia. They are Too Faced, Living Proof, and Philosophy. I didn't see any others than that. And you won't find all product from that 3 brand.
From Too Faced I only see 3 shade of their heart blushes, Chocolate bar palette *make me want it*, their bronzer *only the original size, not the summer collection, some of melted lipstick *I can't find fuchsia*, Better than sex mascara, lip primer, 3 or 4 of their palette *I think it was natural eye, matte, and forget the rest*, their brush set *it was sold I think*, poreless primer, and can't remember the rest.
You won't find their popular shadow insurance, there is one of their eye primer which is the glitter bounding. But They have the Chocolate Bar Palette (around 677.000 IDR) and I am eyeing the chocolate soleil bronzer (around 420.000 IDR).
I am not really like living proof so I don't paid attention what they have right now. But I see the hair mask, hairspray, shampoo, conditioner I think. From philosophy there is hope in a jar moisturizer, the facial wash, lip balm, and I can't remember the rest. But I didn't find the popular exfoliating wash.
Oh yah.. you can find benefit travel size product like porefessional, they're real, their tints for 130.000 IDR. There is also travel size set, I see one of their set consist of girl meet pears, that gal and porefessional. I think they didn't sell it on Benefit counter.
Sephora also carry their own brand and Sephora Indonesia have most of the products. This is the only new brand that complete I think. You can find all of the make up and skin care products from Sephora. Start from the make up (foundation, powder, blush, bronzer, lip, eye, almost everything), nail (the quick nail remover), skin care (all of the skin care series), and body (you will find their colorful body wash, soap, scrub, etc). They also carry the Sephora bag palette, but for make up academy palette it is only available during holiday.
All picture on this blog is my visit to soft opening Sephora Kota Kasablanka, 19 July 2014. I want to get the beauty case and I actually plan to get the Glam Glow supermud (the white one) since last month. Sephora have Hello Sexy set for 890.000 IDR (each mask originally sell for 780.000 IDR). This set is Sephora exclusive, that is why you won't find it at Glam Glow counter. I still have the exfoliating mud mask but this set is a good deal. I might give the small size exfoliating mud for next giveaway *don't forget to join my blog*.
I arrive at 10.00 a.m at Kota Kasablanka and there was a long queue even before the store is open. I am not one of the first 100 customer so I didn't get the welcome gift (that consist of make up bag and mirror, you don't need to purchase anything to get this gift). It is really crowded and everyone looking for something that haven't available yet. I am happy that I already know what I want, take it and go directly to to cashier and get the beauty case. Only 150 first customer who spend 750.000 IDR will get the beauty case.
The Beauty case is not too big, but the design is fine. Made from synthetic leather with Sephora black and white design. It have 2 small drawer one on each side and there is small compartment that can be pull up. It it worth it if you plan to buy something cost total 750.000 IDR or more, but please ladies don't buy something you don't need just for the beauty case. I doubt that you won't need anything at Sephora actually ^-^.
About the price I will said the most of existed products is same price with the original counter. For the new brand it is quite affordable, not really more expensive compare to Sephora Singapore and Malaysia. You need to paid for the ticket and hotel if you go to Singapore or Malaysia tho. It might more expensive compare to US or Europe based Sephora (and it's normal tho).
