Sephora Smitten…

Oct 7, 2011 | Uncategorized | 11 comments

Even our dinky little JC Penny’s Sephora sends me to the moon.
You should SEE the one on the Champs Eylsees!  “The last time I saw Paris” the doors of Sephora were swung open, bumpin’ music playing and practically nude models were being body painted up on platforms… with big burly guards forbidding tourists trying to take   photographs!  
Boy, did I stock up!  I think I spent what I spend these days on groceries – back then I’d be happy to go without food for a cabinet full of lush skin care and the latest makeup!  Theses days as a “Maman de 4” I am just trying to maintain some semblance of fashion and cosmetic sense!  You know what I mean??!!!
Here is a list of goodies I would love to get my hands on this fall!
First of all – how about this makeup?  Isn’t it gorgeous?  So feminine~

A girl can dream can’t she???

    Beautiful…”Maman de 4″!
    You are right on!
    It’s all about dreaming and believing!
    You are a joy to follow!
    Blessings to you and your family,
    now sweet six!

    Oh how I love that store! I’m particularly loyal, since my first experience with them was in Paris too. And let’s face it, their return policy is amazing (as I have completely ordered the wrong color before for my skin).

    By the way, that hourglass liquid liner pen, I got one in a kit and I love it for when I’m wanting that precise line.

    Hello and happy Friday,

    There is no argument that the Sephora on the Champs Elysee use to be fabulous but I have to tell you your dinky one at the Pennys or the one in New York is pretty much the same as in Paris. Firt off, Sephora use to be the it store for all things perfume and makeup…now with all of the global marketing you can get the same stuff here at the same time it is in Paris. Gone are the days of perfum that was only available in Paris until it was launched here.

    I too would spend a boat load of money on Christian Dior lipstick, and Yves St. Laurent, love the colors love the product.
    That being said, the store still has the guards, the thumping music and cool stuff, and you still cannot take photos. It is a haven for tourists. Do your homework before you go there so that you do not pay double with the terrible exchange rate.

    I will be going back to Paris is the coming months and would be happy to bring you something back if you like? Is there something from there that you miss, aside from wine(don’t want it to break) or a piece of furniture from the markets.

    Let me know.

    Oooh, Sephora is like a candy store. I visited the store in Paris that you mention and it was huge with the loud music, but minus the models. I had just come from Guerlain though, and it was hard to top Guerlain. Ahhh, memories…..

    I adore Sephora, but Ulta supplies my day-to-day beauty kicks. It’s a bit less spendy while providing at least some of the swoon. Still, Sephora does beckon so beautifully…

    Our local Penneys just remodeled and now has a Sephora. I just did a quick walk-through the other day because I was short on time. I had never been in one before.

    Sephora is a mecca of sorts to the makeup devotee! I even love the way it smells at the one I visit most frequently:) However, I think I’m becoming, when budget permits, I slow acquirer of Chanel cosmetics (I wear so little that a once-in-awhile indulgence in a new lipstick shade isn’t too tortuous to my wallet – well, let’s say once per year!:). Unfortunately, Sephora where I dwell doesn’t carry Chanel cosmetics. I don’t recall seeing it online, though, I will further investigate.

    I love to dream as well! 🙂

    Before you know it you will be back living the dream with your Sephora and wondering how the time flew with the special four of your adoration!

    Sneak in a few gems to keep you feeling Oh So Pretty…
