Sephora is much better than Macy's, because of the wide makeup selection of more fragrances and makeup brands. On the downside they discontinued the hard Candy lipglosses and nail polishes in late 2007 unfortunatley. I like the Bobbii

The best way to define Sephora in comparison to the other leading brands in the industry is this; Sephora consists of high caliber beauty products with the everyday woman in mind. In comparison to the vibe that I get from some of the other leading brands is when I walk into a store no matter how busy it appears to be an associate always makes themselves available to assist you. Very few places still have associates that are so personable and literally walk you over to the product. I went there the other day to pick up some concealer and a specialist sat with me for 30 minutes trying to place the perfect match for the shades they offer and my complexion. When the cashier asks to take your email information down it really isn??t with the intent just to flood your mail box with junk mail promotions and credit card prompts. Actually discounts and free trial products are offered to registered customers every month and you even get sent a free gist in your birthday. One of the best things about Sephora is I can get a bunch of things I need or gifts all in one place. Not just makeup (although their selection is pretty fabulous), but perfume, stuff for your hair, and pretty much anything you could ever think of to use in the shower. I will admit that some of the makeup selections are pricey. However, if you haven??t to spend you can??t really put a price on quality. Can you?

Sephora is THE sprawling make-up mecca for beauty cultists and make-up addicts. Why should you, the average woman, go to Sephora? Look, I??m the biggest recessionista/bargainista there is, but try finding an eyeliner (that everyday essential) in a drugstore that does not smudge, leaving you with ??panda eyes? or a line way up by your brow. Try finding a red lipstick that doesn??t look awful? details like these matter. There are 1,000,000s of shades of red when you think about it. And more expensive make-up lines actually spend time researching the perfect shade that looks good on every skin tone (I prefer Chanel lipsticks for red, but Sephora has plenty of other cool brands like MAC and NARS that you could try). Bottomline- some make-up items you can get away with getting at the drugstore- some you can??t.

Many would not expect Sephora to have an entire department devoted to all-natural and organic make-up and aromatherapy and skin treatments, but they do. Ole Henricksen is a particularly effective (and expensive!) European brand. Sephora has their own ??Naturally Gorgeous? house brand too. In fact, Sephora offers many European and international beauty products you just wouldn??t find anywhere else.

Their Tools and Accessories department is outstanding! Where else could you find an Airbrush (spray-on) make-up system? I myself can personally recommend the Tanda (light therapy) anti-aging/anti-acne system- after even one use, your skin tone will appear more even, less red, radiant and glowing. It is not a gimmick! In fact, light therapy wands were the only thing that were able to clear up my very severe Acne that I had over the years.

Don??t forget girls, the famous saying is that ??90% of Being a Woman is Smoke and Mirrors (an illusion)?. For women who don??t wear make-up- I used to be one of you? and let me tell you a little bit of lipstick (or lipgloss) and eyeliner goes a LONG way in this world in terms of attracting guys. That??s all you really need. And guys, this may all seem above your heads, but maybe Sephora would be a good place for you to go meet girls if you??re having trouble doing so elsewhere! You could always pick up some cologne in their Men??s department while you??re at it.

Like a candy land for women, Sephora is a one stop shopping destination for all things beauty related. They literally have anything and everything you could ever imagine all under one roof. Frankly I can??t remember where anyone bought makeup before Sephora existed, and I don??t care to. All I know is that when I need to replace both my Bare Minerals powder foundation and my Dior mascara in one fell swoop, I head to the Sephora on 17th street. The staff is always friendly and helpful without breathing down your neck, like at some department stores, and they??re just as knowledgeable about their products as they are honest in the advice they give you. The only complaint I have about it is that it can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. I can never ever go in there on a weekend or during holiday season because it??s a nightmare. The music is blaring, it??s a hundred degrees, and the whole place is ridden with contrasting perfumes being sprayed every which way. It??s enough to give anyone a headache, especially when you add x amount of uncertain shoppers and tourists into the mix. I prefer to go during the week, in the morning, when everyone is at work or at home with their children. I can take my time meandering around the store, peacefully testing potential new lip colors and dreaming of a whole new makeover. That is the true bliss of Sephora.

great place to shop whether you're looking for something specific or just browsing. I walked in pretty much unsure of what I wanted and I walked out with three bags! lol. I love it but I'm not going back anytime soon. Pricey!

I went here trying to find a gift for my wife and the staff was very helpful, helping me to pick out something very nice for her. The store was very clean, bright and well organized, with plenty of great things to choose from. The only thing is it was very crowded, but that is to be expected when you have a great store in a great location. Highly recommended for guys who need help picking out something nice for a lady!

this one of the biggest Sephoras. But one of the most crowded too. The selection is about the same with the other locations and you can walk around those shelves filled with women's most favourite little things. The only problem is that there are too many people around you and a stream of people is going to catch you as soon as you go to the street.

I like to go into Sephora when I have the time to browse around (when I'm without the boyfriend) and take my time playing ith all the different types and brands of make-up. If I don't have the time to enjoy myself in this store, I only run in and out when I know what I want to buy. It's a great one stop shop since they carry most lines and usually have all colors in stock. It's true the salespeople aren't always friendly, helpful or informative but I can some customers aren't actually angels either. If you're looking for some real and attentive help, you're better off going to a department store, but they'll probably also put sales pressure on you, something you can probably avoid in Sephora.

I came here to stock up on all sort of beauty supplies and they have everything. The staff were so helpful and located hair products that I was looking for. In the make up section I didn't think that the girl who helped me was very knowledgeable about makeup..

In the middle of Herald Square, you would expect this place as busy as the first floor of Macy's - and it is. The prices are about the same as Macy's makeup/perfume section, but their sales people don't try and force the products on you as much as the Macy's people. Nor do they force you to make purchases either. They have fun in what they do and they love make up, so they'll just have fun by teaching you about the products and how to use them.

For a wide selection of cosmetics, fragrances, and all the accessories you'd want - this is a fun place to come and browse and shop. The associates are helpful, and are glad to help you, or let you wander by yourself. They also will give you small fragrance samples to try before you buy which is helpful so you don't buy something that doesn't react well on your skin. They have their own line and name brands as well - so you're sure to find a basketful of new items to take you through the season.

Sephora has been an invaluable resource in my life. There is absolutely no reason to buy anything at this store, because you can use absolutely everything in it for free. Since it is usually open late and conveniently located all over the city (all over the WORLD, actually), it is fun and easy to drop by to put on your makeup/nail polish/perfume before going out for the evening.

This place really is like a candy store for those of us who just can't help but buy one more bottle of nail polish or just one more tube of lipstick. Sephora really can be dangerous to your financial health if you're a cosmetics junkie because they've got so many great lines to choose from. There are hundreds of nail polishes in various colors and some that will sparkle and others that may even glow! They have every color in the rainbow of lipsticks, blushes, eye shadows and eye pencils. They've also got great fragrances to choose from (let me tell you, this place smells great.) This is a wonderful place to stop in to pick up a stocking stuffer come Christmas time - you really can't go wrong with anything you choose here.

I love any Sephora that I have gone to; however, when they are larger - you'll have more product or additional lines as well. I love how this facility is laid out and that there are more fragrances at this location then at others. As far as price is concerned this is relative since it is based on brands. For the cheapest price, Sephora's own brand is advised and they have extended into body care in addition to makeup. I find that they have most of my favorites Burberry, Benefit, etc - although MAC is not there which would make this perfect! Besides that, this is a great one stop shop or a great place to try a lot of brands without moving from counter to counter.

PROS: Many brands, subscribe to the newsletter to know what's new
CONS: Sometime's they don't carry the entire product line

Ah Sephora, there's nothing better at the end of the day when you have to go to an interview, a date, or out with friends, and you need a quick makeover. I have many a time stopped into the nearest Sephora, put on some makeup, perfume, etc, to spruce myself up after a long day, and gone about my way. The greatest part: they don't care. They're fine with you sampling all of their goods without buying anything. Of course that is their objective, and sampling products is also the best way to decide whether or not you want them. They have a huge selection of cosmetics, but for low-maintenance girls like myself, just a quick touch-up with expensive powder and blush can make a big difference in your day.

PROS: sampling of products
CONS: little pricey
