Sephora Halifax Grand Opening

Hi Beauties
A few weeks ago Mo and I woke up early in the am to be first in line at the Sephora opening at the Halifax Shopping Centre. We got there before the mall officially opened only to find out there were scores of women who got there first. lol  For those of you who don't know Sephora- it is not only the leading chain of perfume and cosmetics stores in France, it's also a powerful beauty presence in 24 other countries. In the United States and Canada, there are over 280 Sephora stores and over 270 Sephora inside JCPenney stores.  Mo introduced me to another blogger from the Fax, Dana- her blog is Check it out. The line was crazy so I decided I woudn't stand up in the check out line just for one thing which was the Makeup Forever MUFE HD Foundation ($46) which I am dying to try. I spent most of my time at the MUFE section picking out aqualiners and lipsticks for future purchases. Sephora carries a wide array of high to low end brands along with their own sephora brand- NARS, Urban Decay, Clinique, Hello Kitty, MUFE etc.  One brand I was looking for I didnt see which is Illamasqua. I guess I have to go back to check. So besides the grand opening line dance and the ribbon cutting and the tons of eager women, it was like any other typical Sephora store. So I have a MUFE event to attend with Mo on Friday where I guess they spend 15 mins with you trying on different MUFE products. Can't wait.  Oh one funny thing is that Sephora is right across from MAC and apparently some of the MAC artists are now working at Sephora.  I still visit MAC quite often though :) Go check out the store if you're in the area.

I would love to work there but those uniforms are hideous lol

Spent most of my time at the MUFE section lol

We went on a ferry ride after the opening
Funny story, we went thrifting at Value Village and coming off the escalator at the Ferry Terminal, my dress got stuck in the rolling stairs. I thought I was going to be eaten or stripped naked. lol. My dress had to be cut out after trying to find a scissors by a nice gentleman who informed me that my maxi dress with piece missing at the bottom would now become the latest fashion trend. Mo stood there and laughed while trying to pull my dress free.

My new fashion trend. This maxi dress will now become  a mini dress.
