Sephora was founded in 1970 in France as Shop 8 by Dominique Mandonnaud, who, in 1993, fashioned the store's unique name by blending the Biblical name of Zipporah (Moses' exceptionally beautiful wife) with the ancient Greek term for "pretty," sephos.
Today, Sephora is not only the leading chain of perfume and cosmetics stores in France, it's also a powerful beauty presence in 24 other countries. In the United States and Canada, there are over 280 Sephora stores and over 270 Sephora inside JCPenney stores. For more information, visit http://www.sephora.com.
I do love a walk around Sephora. I love treating myself on there and i love testing out products i have seen online and in store.
Have my interactions with the staff there made a great place to shop? Not always.In fact i think its the area that lets them down.
Sometimes i know what i want, so i go in, get it, get out. Sometimes i want opinions,product info, samples etc. Too many times on the latter occasion do i feel like the staff are too busy to help me or that they have someone else they need to/want to help. I get it..its always busy in there but really thats not my problem.
Dont get me wrong i have maybe 3 particular visits (and compared to the amount i go there thats not great!) that stick with me as having had great service.
I love getting samples from Sephora. Pretty much every time i am in there and have a staff member interaction, i get samples. Because..why not. So many people dont even know that Sephora do samples.
Also, i prefer browsing in store and then buying online to take advantage of Ebates.
Sephora is amazing to shop for makeup and even trendy little perfumes. The Sephora brand itself is incredible, not to mention Benefits and all the other great brands they carry. There is something in most people's price range here.
I just started shopping here this week and spent a lot more than I planned on but it was worth it! From the eye shadow to fragrances and skin care they have such a great variety , something for everyone.
Sephora is heavenly! I love walking into the store and seeing the very wide variety of beauty products. I never leave the store without buying something. I am so glad they brought this to my city.
I absolutely love Sephora. Everyone that works there is very helpful and are completely honest. I especially love if they are not completely knowledgeable in something they will find someone for you who is. Some locations in Toronto are obviously better than others, but overall I've never had a bad experience.
I love Sephora! My top beauty store. I find that Sephora can be very expensive for certain products but most are worth it. Plus they have an awesome return policy and I just find this store completely awesome. I'm a VIB member and I receive tons of cool samples by collecting Sephora beauty insider points!
Every time I visit Sephora I feel rich. It is super classy and high end. The products are so different and I always want to buy everything. The cupcake scented body spray is my favorite. I could spend hours in there. Love it.
Ce magasin est un de mes préférés.Malheureusement ,soit que j'en ressort les mains vides, soit trop pleines! Il est difficile de ne pas trop dépenser.Par contre , les produits viennent de grandes marques et sont de très bonnes qualités!
I have mixed feelings about Sephora. My daughter loves it although I find everything to be overpriced. Although the quality is higher end than drug store items, I don't necessarily see the need to purchase from Sephora. This store in the Eaton Centre is big and has many top brands. I find the stores to be too busy, too hot and the line ups too long. However, the service is always good and one of the staff gave me my free birthday sample early so overall a good experience.
I love Sephora, my wallet doesn't like it so much :) It's like a toy store for beauty junkies! There is a great selection of products. You can test out products before buying or get samples to take home. The Sephora favorites packages are great for finding new loves at a great price. There's always a knowledgeable associate to answer questions. My favourite store! I will definitely go back!
