Mischo Beauty: My Sephora Visit...



I was recently gifted with a few Sephora gift cards, and you all know how much I HEART Sephora at this point, right? Well I have to tell you that a recent visit had me running for the store's doors! You see, I was in search of this concealer and this concealer, both by Make Up For Ever. And I can't begin to tell you how disgusting the display testers were (not these in particular)- let's just say major sanitation & disinfection issues! I even attempted to sample items over at the Yves Saint Laurent display, with no luck.

Believe me, I know it's probably hard to control testers left out to be freely sampled by the public, but the looks of those testers left me not wanting to step foot in the store again....

Ok, enough venting for today! But I do want to know your thoughts on testers left out for the general public. Please share!

Please don't put any of those display samples on your face...it just freaks me out! You don't know who has touched what and then touched the makeup. I love love love Sephora but I often feel overwhelmed there...lol!

i rarely use testers b/c they are so gross. the sephora in georgetown pissed me off b/c my friend pulled out a lipstick from the givency display case and it had a HUGE ball of lint on it. wtf???? i wanna to work there just so i can clean everything. i want them to pay me just to clean. i wouldnt have time to actually help a customer.

To AfricanOrchid: I definitely agree with "gross"! I do like to "try" before I "buy"- but not this time...

I agree! Though I love the huge selection at Sephora, they are never clean. In fact I asked one of the salespeople (a while back) why they no longer carried Chanel, and she told me Chanel didn't feel Sephora was up to their sanitation standards. Btw, Make Up Forever's concealers great. The brand has a free standing store in SoHo on West Broadway.
