You can try everything without being eyed by pesky associates. The specialists aren't pushy like department store make-up counters who push that their line is the greatest out of the twenty other competitors. Sephora's peeps are there to HELP, not sell, and they are experienced on the pros and cons of everything in that store. They have free samples when you reach a certain amount or if you want to try out a product without having to buy it first.
My best friend turned me on to Lorac, pronounced La-Rock (we've been apparently mispronouncing it for a couple years). It's natural, fragrance and oil free. The last time we were together, she had this amazing blush (the color is Desire) and I wore it the entire time we were together. It's incredibly smooth, soft, and easy to apply. Well, today I got it, along with some other make-up necessities.
Also, I discovered and tested out this clear lip gloss by Smashbox that uses your "natural skin chemistry" and creates a gloss shade all you own. A fellow customer put it on before me and hers turned a light shade of purple, mine turned a great shade of pink.
Now, go get pretty!
