Founded in Paris in 1970, Sephora is France’s leading chain of perfume and cosmetics stores and currently has over 1,750 outlets in 30 countries around the globe. Sephora opened its first US store in New York City in 1998 after being acquired by the world’s leading luxury goods group LVMH (Louis Vuitton and Moet Hennessy, and yes, that Louis Vuitton and Moet of champagne fame) in 1997. Named for the Greek word for beauty (“sephos”) combined with “Zipporah,” an exceptional beauty from Biblical times, Sephora provides an impressive array of makeup, skincare, fragrance, hair care, bath and body products and hair and makeup tools. Always ahead of the beauty curve, Sephora carries over 100 brands of beauty items along with their own private label, including a makeup line in collaboration with fashion designer Marc Jacobs.
In addition to its unparalleled product selection, Sephora Pasadena provides an interactive shopping environment that promotes personalized client services. Sephora guests receive beauty product education, color advice and makeup application tips and techniques from the store’s expert color consultants and beauty technicians, such as their “express service” personalized beauty tutorials. With exceptional attention to their clients’ beauty needs and wants, guests will leave the store feeling even more beautiful than when they walked in.
