Best of Boston

2017 Best Makeup


The holy land of beauty, Sephora’s appeal lies not in its endless selection of cult-favorite products from YSL, Bobbi Brown, and Nars, but in its accessibility: All of the products can be tested, staffers are happy to spend time talking about the differences between liquid eyeliners, and samples of products can be requested at will. While the cosmetics behemoth continues to expand in Boston with locations in the Fenway and Faneuil Hall, the Prudential Center shop remains a product junkie’s mecca, with frequent classes on such essential topics as dark-circle correction and “no-makeup makeup.”
