What’s in Marina’s Bag

Shopper:
Marina Salomão
Date/Time: 6.21.2012, 4:45 p.m.
Store:
Sephora
Location: 5 Times Square, New York, NY

22-year-old Marina Salomão arrived in New York the day before from Brazil. After a much- anticipated visit to Madame Tussauds in Times Square, she headed to Sephora to pick up some necessities to bring back home.

“Most of the brands sold in the U.S. are not sold in Brazil, and those that are, are much more expensive,” says Salomão. A law student, Salomão says that her image is important. “I wash my face every day with Clean & Clear. I apply toner, moisturize and use La Roche-Posay sunblock,” she says. “I then put on mascara, eyeliner and a little gloss.” Today, a Sephora employee gave Salomão a tour of the brands offered and provided her with a makeover in the process, an experience she calls “marvelous.” Salomão decided to purchase some of the products used during her session. “I usually buy from Super Beauty in Brazil, but there tends to be long lines,” says Salomão. “But today that wasn’t the case since we had our Sephora stylist on hand.”
