In celebration of 10 years of beauty, Sephora presents 10 days of fun in its first and biggest beauty playground in Singapore, the Sephora Playhouse. Spanning a staggering 700 square meters at Ngee Ann City, Civic Plaza, any beauty aficionado can rock out to one-of-a-kind interactive experiences in this warehouse-sized Insta-ready funhouse brimming with all that Sephora aims to teach, inspire and play.
The Sephora Playhouse is a varied and vibrant beauty-verse bursting at the seams with nine individually themed rooms custom-built just for this event. Each room represents one brand, is fully interactive, on-trend, and has a striking and distinct aesthetic theme for the perfect photo op. If you have the Sephora app, open it while you’re at the Sephora Playhouse for exclusive content and an enhanced interactive experience.
1) Slide down the Sephora Collection Cream Lip Slide
Celebrating the fun of the Cream Lip brand, the Sephora Collection space features a life-sized Lip Tube to pose in after you enjoy a complimentary lip-over from Sephora’s beauty advisors. The Cream Lip Slide is a tongue-in-cheek testament as to how slick these lippies are.
2) Lounge with life-sized Fenty Beauty’s Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette
Step into a place of mysticism and exotic flavors, a dream-like world where one is surrounded by thousands of “diamonds in the sky”. Fenty Beauty by Rihanna’s universe invites guests to lounge and indulge in a majestic Moroccan mood, in honour of Fenty Beauty’s new Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette.
3) Navigate your way through Estée Launder’s blue light prismatic mirror maze
Experts agree that blue light is increasingly becoming a cause for concern, with damaging effects on the skin, especially from close-range blue light (e.g. your favourite midnight IG scrolling). This results in the first signs of ageing now appearing around the eyes. With your life being exposed to so many kinds of pollution, including Blue Light from your many screens and devices, rest assured that Estée Launder is here to save the day with their newest innovation in skincare, the Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex. Navigate your way through the blue light prismatic mirror maze and see if you can find quotes along the way to help you find your true sparkle.
4) Sample products at Fresh Beauty’s dream “beauty kitchen”
The Fresh Beauty kitchen is a welcoming space where all Fresh ingredients come to life. Re-imagining a classic setting, the Beauty kitchen playfully celebrates freshness with an abundance of natural ingredients. Fresh sky blue, an iconic color of the brand, fills the entire space, representing the spirit of endless possibility. Go on an indulgent and sensorial journey as you sample products made from Fresh’s signature ingredients.
5) Bounce on trampolines at Urban Decay’s Bouncy Palette Room
When it’s time to grab your carry-on and dash off to the next big adventure, you’ll want to pack light. Enter Urban Decay’s Bouncy Palette Room, inspired by their new Born to Run Palette. Here, the color squares are literally bouncy because they are trampolines.
6) Smell peachy all day long with Too Faced’s signature scent
It is dreams and peaches abundant within the Too Faced Peaches & Cream area. It’s not just a picture-perfect setting made for your #OOTD – with Too Faced’s signature scent released at the push of a peach, you will smell and look peachy all day long.
7) Jump into a paddle ball pit at Tarte Cosmetics’ Rainforest of the Sea Underwater World
Revel in Tarte Cosmetics’ Rainforest of the Sea Underwater World. Jump into a paddle ball pit and take an Insta-worthy picture which serves up a cool optical illusion of being leagues under the sea, replete with marine algae and flower extracts.
