An Interview With Sephora's Makeup Maven

An Interview With Sephora's Makeup Maven

Last week during my insider's tour of Sephora headquarters, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Kimberly Chinn, the lovely and charming color merchant (a.k.a., makeup buyer) for Girls, let me tell you that she has the most fabulous office decor—that is, wall-to-wall product! We spent an extensive amount of time chatting about her favorite fabulous new products, so I thought I'd take this opportunity to share a bit of Kim's energetic essence. Now, for a brief look into the mind of a beauty buyer.

    FABSUGAR: If you could only take one beauty product with you to a deserted island, what would it be?
    KC: It would have to be TheBalm's TimeBalm Concealer, since it helps to mask my redness.
    FAB: What is your favorite lip gloss?
    KC: Nars super moisturizing lip gloss in Metis. It's a beautifully sheer mulberry color.

For the rest of the interview,

    FAB: Do you prefer cream or powder blush? What is your favorite?
    KC: Neither. I use Cargo Liquid Powder. It's a top seller for us. It makes your skin unbelievably soft.
    FAB: Are you a fan of the current red lips trend?
    KC: No. I'm not into red lips because red doesn't look great on my pinky skin tone. But done correctly, I think red lips can be gorgeous.

Thanks again Kim for your time and your valuable insight. Now, excuse me while I get stocked up on some more Cargo Liquid Powder.
