New Sephora Store at Disney Springs

*I received a gift card from Sephora to purchase the items in this post. My experiences and opinions are my own. 

I had the pleasure to do something a little different yesterday for Imperfectly Painted. I was contacted by Sephora to check out their new Disney Springs location in Orlando, FL. Disney Springs was formerly Downtown Disney and has been going through renovations over the past few years to add more stores and restaurants. What's great about Disney Springs is there is no admission fee and the parking is free!  They recently opened up their own Sephora in the Disney Springs new Town Center area. Sephora kindly sent me gift card so I could check out their new store and pick up some new goodies!

This is the new Sephora location at Disney Springs, The location is 5,785 sq ft. and features all of your tried and true brands Sephora offers. They have over 13,000 products from over 200 brands. I noticed that this store was a tad bit smaller than the Sephora's I've visited at mall locations, but it still is a very substantial store. This store offers everything from cosmetics, hair care, fragrance, and skincare. The store is a brightly lit, open, and I loved the layout. The store was fairly busy, but did not feel packed and it was easy to navigate.
I loved this little beauty studio area I have in the picture above. When I was there they were offering a little 30-40 min class on brows. They also have one-on-one free consultations with their beauty advisers and mini makeovers. They offer here their Color IQ technology that helps match your skin tone to foundations and concealers, their Skincare IQ which finds your custom skincare recommendations, and Fragrance IQ which finds fragrance recommendations based on your preferences. Finally, they offer customized makeovers with an expert artist for 45 minutes with a $50 minimum purchase.
I had to check out the nail area of course! I did find they had a smaller collection of nail polish than the store at the mall, but they still had plenty to choose from. They had their Sephora Formula X line which I absolutely love. They also had a small collection of Nails Inc, Ciate, and Deborah Lippmann nail polishes. This limited edition. Disney Minnie Beauty by Sephora Collection fits in perfectly at this Disney Springs location. I also really love their "Beauty On The Fly" section near the checkout travel/trial sized items of some of their best selling products. It's hard not to be tempted by this section!
I went into Sephora with a mission. I really wanted to find some staple products for my makeup routine. I have enough eye shadow, blush, lipstick, and all of that fun stuff. I really wanted some skincare, a BB cream, a nail polish, and highlighters. I was helped by some amazing staff there. Michael, Rosanna, and Grace all helped me find products that suited my needs and tested them on my skin. The service there was top notch. Everyone was always very willing to help you, answer questions, and spend time with you.

Here is a closer look at the products I picked out. Sephora also sent me that great makeup bag (pictured above) to hold all of my new goodies!
Sephora Formula X in Euphoria from the Black Quartz Collection: I had two other colors from this collection and love the mix of black and pink glitter in Euphoria.

First Aid Beauty Anti-Redness Serum:  I have very sensitive skin with redness. I find my redness really gets worse in summer with the heat. I tried this on in store and it really helped calm down my skin!

Dr. Jart+ Dis-A-Pore Beauty Balm: I don't like to wear a lot of makeup when it comes to foundation. I find it can be too heavy, so a BB cream is perfect. I was looking for something that could give me a light coverage, but didn't get wear off easily in the summer heat. I tried this one on my skin along with some other BB creams, and the Dr. Jart+ was my favorite. This one works for combo/oily skin, helps minimize pores, and has SPF 30!

Sephora MicroSmooth Baked Luminizers: I want some glow in summer and I loved both of these luminzers. I got the two shades they had available, Stardust (a pale golden glow) and Light Beam (a soft rose gold glow). What I liked about these is they offer a radiant and luminous glow without anything glittery or chunky.

I really enjoyed my experience at Sephora Disney Springs! What I think is great about this location is not only is it close to me (no complaints there), it's on Disney property. I know a few of my readers are local to Orlando, some of you are in Florida, but I know many of you vacation at Walt Disney World. I think you all will definitely love this location as an added bonus to your vacation and Disney experience! Why not add a little Sephora glitz and glam to your Disney Magic?

I want to thank Sephora for providing me with this fun opportunity to check out their new store. I'll definitely be back as I'm an under 10 minute drive away! This will be my new go-to Sephora location.

Happy Tuesday!
