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.

The photo of me is after the makeover.

    I have gone to Sephora many times and they are always helpful and make the experience fun whether I’m dressed or in drab. Here are a few products I love:

    1. Kat Von D Lock it Foundation
    2. Stila Color Correction Kit
    3. Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Moisturizer

    Also sign up for there website great forums make up beauty and health information. However, they need a trans specific group.

    Enjoy!

    I had a great experience at a session for the trans community at a Sephora in Cambridge, MA. A few women noticed us but in a blase way. The staff was terrific and hekpful.

    Terri, if that fabulous photo is an example of Sephora’s work, then I’m overdue for a visit. Being well into that category delicately described as “ladies of a certain age”, I had doubts about me being a workable canvas for their work – but you are perfect; if my results were only half as good, I would be pleased.

    My experience with a Sephora location in my area was not nearly as positive. It is in a major mall here in Southern Ontario, a usually enlightened area, and every time I went into that mall, I always made a point of walking by the Sephora store, and a couple of weeks ago, when they weren’t so filled with young girls, I finally went in. So many different products, it was amazing! Of course, more than a little confusing, too. Here’s the disappointing part, I was in the store about 10-15 mins, and during that time about 3 staffers walked… Read more »

    Yes, I suspect that if I had asked, I would of got whatever info I asked for, but at the time I was a bit intimidated by the whole thing. It certainly would of been nice to have been approached by a staff person.

    Hi Terri
    It’s so good to see you after your Sephora makeover. You look great, BTW. As you may remember, I was at FE, too and did my usual modeling at the Fashion show, I’d love to hear from you.
    Love

    You look fabulous girlfriend!
    Great,classy and attractive choices.
    Great wig choice as well.
    At 73, it gets more challenging each passing year; shaking putting on makeup,eyelashes,etc.
    Keep up the great look,as long as possible.
