Best Candy Store for Grown-Up Girls (2008)


The sweet treats of beauty emporium Sephora may prove just as perilous to a girl's pocketbook as chocolates do to her curves and complexion. This palace of pulchritude offers seemingly every confection under the sun, from the shamelessly luxe ($160 for a bottle of Quelques Roses by Parfums Clare) to the unabashedly low-end ($3.50 for a crimson lip-liner). The beauty part: Every product has a tester tube or bottle on the floor and each aisle terminates with a shelf of cotton balls, tissues, Q-tips, and cleanser—a girl may sample to her heart's content. Yummy. Various locations throughout the city.
