The new 4,848 square foot, free-standing SEPHORA store at Buckhead Exchange is a virtual paradise of endless beauty options with over 13,000 products from more than 200 brands, including SEPHORA’s own collection of makeup, skincare, tools and accessories, SEPHORACOLLECTION.


My friend Sas & I did a little shopping damage before we went out that night.

I convinced my friend to meet me at the new Sephora Buckhead Exchange location. She is a beauty junkie too, and of course she couldn’t let me shop on my own. She gotta some beauty goodies for herself too!


I needed some new foundation bad! I have a bad habit of guessing my own foundation by doing several swatches until I assume I found my right one. Well at Sephora I almost forgot they have their own Foundation Searching Technology called Color IQ. They use a device to scan the top of my forehead and my cheeks to get my perfect match. They found my color within less than a minute at my Color IQ match is 4YO4. With this code I matched with several different brands of foundation color that was in Sephora. There were so many brands but I went with Anastasia Beverly Hills Foundation Stick in Amber.

Along with the foundation stick I actually went on a super beauty haul and racked up on some pre-summer goodies. The basics that I thought I would need to get me ready for the upcoming summer! I think I did well with my little haul!

Look they don’t call me Kiwi The Beauty for no reason. I love beauty products so much. I am not a kid in the candystore. I am a young woman in a beauty store and really happy with my Sephora purchases.

    The Buckhead Exchange at Sephora sounds like it was indeed amazing to shop at. I have never shopped at Sephora but would love to some day. Thanks for sharing your awesome experience.

  • Amber Myers says:

    First of all, you look fabulous. I haven’t been into a Sephora store in AGES. I need to go, because I’ve been using the same makeup for years. I need a change. I could use that foundation searching technology.

  • Stephanie Jeannot says:

    Is the face brush great? I have been thinking of getting one to add to my beauty routine. I like sephora for that. You can get so many cool things there. Cool beauty haul.

  • Tracey says:

    That looks like an awesome day! Who doesn’t love a good shopping trip to Sephora! My favourite stop to try out new makeup and beauty products.

  • Melanie says:

    It has probably been a year since I have been in a Sephora. I enjoy shopping at the store, but I just do not have one local to me that is convenient to pop in. I wish we did, though, because it would be great to see all the new products.

  • The colorIQ sounds amazing. We don’t have a Sephora store here, so I always shop online.

  • Melissa says:

    It is great to have Sephora because they have everything and so many great choices that you can’t go wrong. I don’t use a lot of makeup but my daughter does so we always go to Sephora

  • I need to find my perfect foundation, I forgot they do that. I just keep putting off buying some because I don’t know if it’s going to be the right color.

  • Dee says:

    We have a sephora in out town, but I have never been to one before. I am going to have to take my friend and go there one day.

  • Sephora looks like an unique shop, presenting a neat shopping experience. I like the 60 min makeover package they offer!

  • Kimberly says:

    How. Gorgeous. Are. You?
    You look fabulous. I really love that shade of pink on your lips! LOVE.
    We just got Sephora in our mall – I know, right?! And I could live there. Before we had to cross over into America to get our fix. LOL!
    But anyways, you are simply gorgeous!

  • Pam Wattenbarger says:

    I haven’t found my perfect foundation. My skin changed and now my old one doesn’t work anymore!

  • Ali Rost says:

    Sephora is one of my all time favorite stores! I’m not even kidding .. I have to be strict with myself or I would come home literally with one of everything! I’ve always wanted to try one of their custom makeovers and had no idea they offered classes. Those I’m going to have to check out!

  • Tara Salinas says:

    I love Sephora! I just got some GrandLash and GrandeBrow from them and have fallen in love! You haul is impressive!

  • Kathy says:

    That looks like an awesome event to attend. Sephora has some great products. I love all their makeup.

  • I could spend all day at Sephora. They have everything I need and then some.

  • What is it about Sephora that I walk in looking for one things and I walk out with a bag full of stuff? This store is really like a candy store for me. I can spend hours in here. It looks like you had a great time and got some wonderful stuff.

  • Marysa says:

    I need to do some stocking up at Sephora! I haven’t been in a while and this post reminds me of how much great stuff they have. Looks like you had fun!

  • Maurene Cab says:

    That’s a paradise for many women out there! It’s great they open a new store. I’d give it a visit.

  • Lynzy & Co says:

    Looks like you had an awesome time. How is that Nicole Guerrero palette? So many goodies.

  • Annemarie LeBlanc says:

    I love shopping at Sephora for gifts. I don’t usually use make up so if I am ever in the store, it would be for “the basics” or for getting someone a nice gift. Congratulations to Sephora for opening up another branch.

  • Dogvills says:

    Sure feels great to be pampered once in a while! I am happy that Sephora has opened a new branch. Now more women can enjoy feeling like a celebrity.

  • Even though it’s not my department, the one thing I do appreciate about Sephora is their customer service. They treat their customers like queens. My daughter has been in there several times and they have been very sweet. As a dad I really appreciate that.

  • Mars says:

    Great post. I just love the face brush. I want to have one of that now.

  • My Teen Guide says:

    Yay! Congratulations, Sephora. I am happy you opened a new branch in Atlanta. Sephora makes me feel special and their staff is really accommodating and ready to respond to your beauty questions.

  • I love makeup shopping! In fact, I just did that yesterday. It looks like you had a lot of fun. I need to do one of those makeovers – those are really fun!

  • Brianne says:

    What a fun shopping trip! I just love Sephora!

  • Looks like you had a lot of fun shopping! I think Sephora is one of the best places to get quality make-up! It can be addicting to shop there though! LOL.

  • Lynndee says:

    I don’t wear makeup so I’ve never been to Sephora. 🙂 My sister is so into makeup though so she’d be in cloud nine there.

  • Eloise says:

    Sephoria has it all for make up/beauty products (the one stop shop!) It’s been a while since I last been there, I’ll have to go soon : ) It’s always fun!

  • Anosa says:

    Sephora is known to be a great with quality product. It’s really nice to know that there are stores of this kind. Indeed fun to go over and ask for beauty experts.

  • Stacie says:

    I could get lost in Sephora! I’ve been trough Buckhead. It’s a really nice area. I’d love to visit it again.

  • Mimi Green says:

    I had no idea Sephora had a skin matching for a foundation. I need to do this, I recently purchase a foundation and I don’t think it is right for my complexion.

    There is a new one moving in a couple blocks from my job. I can’t wait until it opens.

  • Candice says:

    I haven’t tried the foundation finder device yet, that sounds helpful. Let us know what you think about the Anastasia foundation stick. I haven’t taken the leap yet.

  • Lauren says:

    I didn’t know about the Sephora color IQ match. I definitely need to try that.

  • Meeta says:

    That Foundation Searching Technology sounds really interesting. Like you I sometimes have issues with finding the exact match. This sounds like a great location for beauty fanatics 🙂

  • Elle (CleverlyChanging) says:

    I haven’t been to a Sephora in ages, but by the looks of it, I should try it. You look amazing.

  • It’s been forever since I’ve gotten new makeup. And I usually use Mary Kay. The digital technology for guidance I’d eject the to Sephora.

  • Marsha says:

    I sometimes get a bit overwhelmed at the Sephora in the mall close to me but I’m gonna have to check this one out! I’m also a beauty product lover and you got some great things!

  • Great tips and though I am not a make-up girl appreciate the guidance and insights into Sephora and what they offer.

  • I totally need to try that Color IQ match at Sephora! As a Latina I NEVER get the right color match, I mean even visiting a beauty counter! We always tend to be ‘profiled’ for colors that are WAY too yellow for our skin under sunlight. This sounds like I might get a fighting chance at finding a foundation that I do not have to custom blend myself! YES and YAS to that!

  • Brittani says:

    I have to try the color IQ! I’ve been in dire need of finding a new foundation that gives me flawless coverage! Thanks for the suggestions.
