The Grove just keeps getting better. In addition to hosting Nike's massive West Coast flagship, Nicole Richie's first-ever House of Harlow pop-up, and Jessica Alba's Honest Beauty installment, the outdoor shopping center has just landed its very own Sephora. We've been waiting for this opening since early summer and have since then kept a close watch on the beauty retailer's progress of taking over Forever 21's former spot. We previewed the shop yesterday and can confirm that the 4,746-square-foot space is filled with all the beautification essentials we've grown to love from Sephora—and then some.
As previously mentioned, the shop offers over 13,000 productions from more than 200 brands, including luxury hits like Givenchy and Marc Jacobs, and eco-friendly faves like Josie Maran and Pharmacy. Highlights include a set of beauty studios located at the front and rear of the store, with the front offering free mini makers and the back hosting complimentary 15-minute mini facials, a service new to the store that we're all excited about.
See photos above and join in on the opening festivities today and tomorrow, where Sephora makeup artists are taking over The Grove's park to host free makeup session inspired by the spring/summer 2016 runway. Learn more here.
Sephora at The Grove is open Monday through Friday from 10am to 9pm, Saturday from 10am to 10pm, and Sunday from 11am to 8pm.
