Make-up Overload

  • Dec 30, 2008
  • by
True make-up aficionados may disagree, but I think Sephora is pretty much genius. There's something for everyone, men included. The whole place is vibrant and shimmering...a grown-up candy store of sorts.

The pros:
  • One stop shopping - almost every brand you can think of and then some
  • They not only have make-up, but perfumes, styling tools, as well as products for skin and hair care
  • At every display there is a collection of q-tips, cotton balls, cotton pads, tissues, and make-up remover so you can test and try to your heart's content
  • On-site make-up artists for those of us who are less adept at the application process
  • Friendly and helpful staff
The cons:
  • Not so friendly or helpful staff - sometimes it's hit or miss
  • Overkill - such a huge selection, while fabulous if you know what you want, can be daunting and bewildering if you're not sure what you're looking for
I mostly put on make-up when I remember. But for those times a little glam is necessary, Sephora is the go to spot to find what I need. Haven't been let down yet.

What did you think of this review?

I love that they have EVERYTHING! The stores are usually bright and cheery and I ALWAYS have a great experience when I shop their... They are so used to me as a shopper that they know that I like to help myself. LOL.... no one bothers or follows me. Great place.

   I am a label whore ONLY when it comes to makeup and perfume, so Sephora is my one big budget-killing weakness. With the exception of MAC, they have all my favorite brands under one huge, well-lit roof. Since there is such a huge selection and I'm on a budget, I have a somewhat obsessive plan of attack each time I visit. If you want to keep your head on straight & not blow your bank account to complete smitherings, try my helpful (and slightly crazy) steps: Know what you need. …

A place I could spend hours in! The prices are pretty high, but the store brand is always cheaper. And plus, sometimes it's just worth it!

Are you a fiend for makeup?  Do you have at least 2 bottles of perfume on your nightstand? Is your shower/bathroom counter filled with insane amounts of conditioner, shampoo, and styling products?  If so, then you've got to check this store out.     Sephora is the world's largest beauty retail store that carries makeup brands ranging from Urban Decay and Nars to higher end brands like Fresh.  They have become a one stop shop for women that enjoy higher end perfume, …
