Best of Sephora Kolkata: Top Brands and Products

Hello everyone,

Yesterday, Kolkata has finally opened her arms to the well-known cosmetic giant Sephora. The store is now one of the biggest makeup stores in the city and is packed with famous international brands that we Kolkatans were desperately in need of. Becca, Smashbox, Stilla, Bobbi brown, Sephora, Clinique, Michael Kors, Dior, Bulgari, Givenchy, Estee Lauder, Clairins, Forest Essentials, Elizabeth Arden, Nyx Cosmetics, Benefit, Makeup Forever, Glamglow, Burts Bees,  OPI, Burberry, Givenchy, Dior, Versace, Tom ford, Shiseido, Foreo, Boscia are to name a few, no wonder Sephora is touted as “The Mecca of Makeup”.
I have kind of a mixed feeling, happy because now I don’t have to wait for months to buy my favorite products and sad because I am broke to the core. I really have to spend exorbitant amount of time to convince myself to spend my money on those exorbitantly priced stuff.
Anyway, coming back to today’s topic, I often get enquiries about Sephora India must haves, so as Sephora finally spread its wings to Kolkata, we thought of making a list of products that you can splurge on.
Listed below are those that I feel are best from the array of products Sephora houses.
All my makeup lovers, welcome to makeup heaven.

I have too many favorites from the brand. They’re real mascara, Roller Lash mascara, POREfessional face primer, Benetint cheek and lip stain, Highbeam liquid highlighter, Ka-Brow, Goof-proof brow pencil and gel liner pen are some of the products which you can try from Benefit. Hoola Bronzer and their range of blushes are amazing as well.

Almost every product from this brand is a hit and is also cheaper compared to the other brands available. Try their lip liner, eye pencils, cream lip stains, liquid foundations, pressed glitter monos, single eye shadows, neon nail paints, compacts, highlighter, bronzers and blushers. 

Their skin care range is amazing as well. Try their face masks and eye masks; you are going to love them. You can also try their brushes, sponges and other makeup tools.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter is one of their cult favorite products. If you are a fan of Instagram highlighting, then this is something you need in life. The formula is great and they are oh so gorgeous. The glow the highlighter imparts looks so sophisticated and is impeccable. My favorites are opal and moonstone. You can try their back light priming filter face primer as well, one of the best primers I have used.

is a brand that all makeup gurus and lovers swear by. HD foundations and concealers have received immense love from people worldwide. Beautiful texture, high coverage, amazing finish and long staying, what else can anybody want? Their cream blushes and lipsticks are good as well. Their HD blushes are good as well.

Sophisticated, smart and sexy, that is what Stilla is. Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks, Convertible Cheek and Lip Cream, Smudge pots, Smudge Stick Waterproof eyeliner, Liquid Glitters and eye shadow palettes are their most raved products. Though liquid glitters are yet to reach the stores, you can definitely try the other products, especially the cult favorite liquid lipsticks.

Finally NYX baby is here in Kolkata, probably the only brand my pocket is currently happy about. At least I can buy the jumbo eye pencil in milk with whatever I am left with. It is a wonderful product, do give it a try. Also their other jumbo eye pencils, soft matte lip creams, liquid suede cream lipstick, lip lingerie, finishing powder, single blushes, eye shadows, lip liners, eye pencils, highlighter and contour palette, pigments, setting spray are worth every penny. You just can’t go past the counter without stopping.

Burts Bees lip balms are my absolute favorite from the brand. They are just amazing. You can try the shampoos from the brand as well.

Be Legendary’ lipsticks, primers and primer water are their most raved and loved products. Mmm..I like the lipsticks, but not my ‘favorite ever’, but absolutely love the primers.

Get their Double Wear Foundation if you can. It is one of the best foundations I have ever tried.

Beside their range of perfumes, try their mascaras, eye shadow pallets and lipsticks. DiorShow Iconic High Definition Lash Curler mascara is my favorite. Diorskin Forever Flawless Perfection Fusion Wear is good as well.

The internet frenzy brand, that is what I call Glam Glow. People all over Instagram and YouTube are just crazy over their products. I am yet to try any of them, but if you are in a mood to splurge, you can obviously give a try. I have heard that the products start from 4k.

Sephora being a multi brand store have the most amazing collection of perfumes, for both men and women. The prices are obviously in the higher range, but once in a while, you can definitely indulge in one or two.

I am just upset that “Soap and Glory” is not there. But more than anything else, I am so excited about the fact that my favorite mall is finally re-opening new and improved with biggy brands like Sephora, Foreever 21 and Starbucks; because as they say, “South City isn’t just a mall. It is an emotion.” J
