I honestly cannot remember the last time I purchased an item at Sephora. I always go in the store when I’m at the mall.. but I just never end up buying anything. Why?
First, I think everything is expensive.. Even the sample sizes near the counter are overpriced.. Most of the brands are higher end like YSL, Tatcha, Tarte. Yes, I consider Tarte high end because I cannot buy justify buying anything from them.. I’m a cheap girl- I want to spend as little as possible.
Second, I feel like the inventory never changes.. the brands that are sold stay the same, the setup stays the same, even the Kbeauty items don’t really change.
Third and most importantly – SEPHORA SALES SUCK. They’re almost nonexistent. Nothing worth buying is ever on sale. Ever. When they do advertise they’re having a sale, it’s like 15% on the shitty items that they’re trying to get rid of… what is that.. I might as well buy full price. Even Ulta has better sales and more updates in inventory. I’ve even been to Sephora on Black Friday and Cyber Monday and there are no AMAZING deals. Like they have gift sets at a better value but still the products that are up for these deals aren’t holy grails or anything like WOW I HAVE TO GET MY HANDS ON THAT. Now that I think about it I don’t think I’ve ever seen a clearance rack at Sephora.. Do they have one??
Do I blame Sephora? No I don’t because their business is doing great for them so they don’t have to have amazing sales. But am I going to shop there? Nope. I’d rather go to Ulta or buy direct from the brands I want, like Etude House or Urban Decay’s online wesbite.
That’s just my thoughts. 🙂
