A Hodgepodge Submission
The other day I visited a Sephora store near me. I normally buy my cosmetics from Estee Lauder. The reason I decided to go to Sephora was because of their support for the transgendered community. This year I attended the First Event conference in Massachusetts and the Keystone conference in Pennsylvania. At both of those conferences, Sephora held presentations. They expressed their support for the transgendered community and welcomed us to shop their locations. So I said to myself let me show my support back.
I went to the Sephora store; the way I was treated had me leaving happy. There were two women who saw me looking around and asked if they could be of help to me. I told them my story about giving back, and one of them offered to help. I ended up getting a full makeover. It was one of the nicest makeovers I’ve ever gotten. She was so nice and not at all pushy about me purchasing any items.
I knew that makeovers are free with a $50 purchase. I bought a great foundation which cost $52. She and another person, I think they were both managers, explained about the store’s free makeup classes and also a class specifically for transgendered individuals. I gave them my information, and they said they would send me the information for the classes. I have been going out in public a long time, and I have to rate this as one of my top 10 experiences. If there is a Sephora near you, I suggest that you check it out. I believe we should support those who support us.
