Now DuWop, now Dior, now Phyto and (Kat) Von D! On Clarins, on Cargo, on Smashbox and Benefit! Ladies, it’s Christmas in July—cosmetic candy store Sephora opens its doors today.
We got the private, pre-opening tour and can confirm it’s beauty full, with 7,000 square feet (2,000 more than its standard shops) and a whopping 13,000 products. From the alphabetized fragrance wall to the double aisle of application tools, you’ll be hard-pressed not to spend hours trying powders and potions. Don’t know where to begin? Locate a pro and they’ll give you a complimentary lesson in mastering the smoky eye or ruby red lip. There’s also no more make-up buyers remorse because sampling is encouraged and they’ll gladly send you home with a handful of testers.
Now you know where to find us after work for the next few weeks.
