Notes From Paris, Volume 1

Yes, this beauty chick is back from Paris! And I have anecdotes to share ... some of which, of course, deal with beauty! The definite frontrunner? Sephora. The beauty mecca has long enticed and excited me, but imagine my complete and utter delight when I happened upon the biggest Sephora store I've ever seen! As my friend and I were strolling along the Champs Elysees, we came to a sudden halt and stared in awe at what was before us. I'm telling you, this Sephora store was massive. It went back, back, back as far as the eye could see, and scattered throughout were more brands and products than I would have ever thought possible in one place. There were even makeup studios for Chanel and M.A.C inside ... though, sadly, I got there too late in the evening to have my makeup done. And I live in New York, where I thought I'd seen everything! Check out the pics below for proof!

Isn't it nice to know you can travel to a different country and still be surrounded by all your favorite products?

  1. OMG I'm drooling!! That looks like a makeup junkie's dream come true! Wow, I'm surprised Sephora carries M.A.C. there! Very cool! Did you end up buying any goodies??

  2. Hi Jamie! Wow.. I want to go there now!! Disneyland!

  3. Whoa! It's like the Willy Wonka factory of Sephora stores. Looks like I'll be going to Paris this summer.

  4. This Sephora was seriously amazing. I couldn't believe how big it was and how much they carried! I did buy a couple things ... which will be featured in an upcoming post!
