The spacious, transformed location has truly become the beauty jewel of Times Square. The event started with a tour of the newly renovated location for media and a little indulging in Sephora’s vast, must-have beauty arsenal
The festivities really began when Sephora Time Square staff entertained the public with a flash mob performance in front of the store
Followed by a celebrity ribbon cutting with one of my favorite actresses, the very lovely Rose Byrne
Performers, dressed in Sephora’s signature black and white entertained the anxious crowd of beauty lovers who arrived early to be one of the first 100 people to enter the store and the chance to get a Sephora giftcard in increments of $10.00, $25.00, $50.00 or $100.00 (NOTE: EACH DAY UNTIL SATURDAY, DECEMBER 8TH, THE FIRST 100 WILL RECEIVE THE GIFTCARD)
