Beauty Updates: New Beauty Counters That You Should Visit
Oh it seems like it’s going to be an exciting year when we talk about beauty. So many new beauty products are coming to Indonesia and we couldn’t get more excited. But let’s begin with those that are already opening their doors, or even, some of our old favourites that have just recently opened new counters and worth a visit.
1. Benefit Pop Up Store at Plaza Indonesia
Come May and you can finally shop the Benefit cosmetics in Indonesia. I’m so happy that they’re finally available here in Indonesia. Although it’s just a pop up store, but the point is, Benefit products are now available and can be bought with Indonesian Rupiah! I’ve seen the price list and let me tell you, it’s very reasonable. The famous Benefit box ‘O Powders are all priced at IDR 330,000 and if my memory doesn’t fail me, the foundation price is at around IDR 480,000! But the creme de la creme was the the palettes which are priced at around IDR 330,000 – IDR 380,000! My wish list is getting longer by the second. By Halloween, hopefully, they’ll be able to open their first store at Plaza Senayan. Yay!
2. Laneige at Seibu Grand Indonesia
It’s a sad day when Laneige is no longer available in Indonesia. And all we can do is drool over their top sellers products such as Laneige Water Bank Essence and Water Sleeping Pack_EX. What about their famous BB Cream range lineup? Oh, we want to try them! We’ve been waiting impatiently since last year, but now the wait is over, because their first counter is now open at Seibu Grand Indonesia. They’re planning to open another 6 stores in Jakarta this year across various SOGO- the one that I remember are Central Park and Pondok Indah Mal. Oh, also, rumour has it, their bigger sister Sulwashoo is coming to town by mid-year. Yay!
3. Bobbi Brown in Surabaya!
For those of you who live in Surabaya, rejoice! Because finally Bobbi Brown is just a few steps away from your doorstep. You don’t have to go to Jakarta, or even worse, overseas, to get their products. Where in Surabaya, you ask? It’s available at SOGO Tunjungan Plaza 4 Surabaya. Now finally you can swatch their products all you want.
