Once a Beauty Pass member, the app allows shoppers’ instant access to their accounts, where they can track their membership status, collect points and redeem rewards.

The Sephora – Beauty Shopping app will also hold members’ Beauty Pass barcode so they will no longer need their card instore, seamlessly linking the traditional and digital retail experience.

“Our shoppers want the best in beauty, they want it now. Thanks to the ‘Sephora – Beauty Shopping’ app it’s now at their beautifully-manicured fingertips.

They can discover the best in beauty – makeup, skincare, fragrance and more – anytime, anywhere, whilst receiving all the benefits of a store experience.

Shoppers will also be treated to app-exclusive rewards that include flash previews, early access to product launches and surprise promotions,” says Libby Amelia, Country Manager, Sephora Australia.

Sephora is on the front foot to make ‘fast-beauty’ a reality for Australian shoppers with their customer-centric app. The app ensures that Sephora continues to lead the market with not only the best in beauty, but with continued digital innovation.
