According to strategy magazine online, Sephora is the retailer innovator of the year. Using the TIP strategy - Sephora encourages their clients to teach, inspire and play when it comes to beauty. 

With over two thousand stores, across 33 countries, Sephora has made its statement in the beauty and skincare world. 


With majority of their clients spread out across the world, Sephora needed to reach their audience on a global level. Reaching their massive audience along with having the ability to demonstrate products digitally became priority for the brand. Personalization in experience was key in their marketing tactic.

Sephora has 61 stores in Canada, 14 of them are in the GTA. 


Along with pop-up shops, beauty influencers in the stores, consultations offered on the go (beauty bikes) and Beauty Studios (where expert advice and makeovers are offered) - Sephora also offers interactive offerings - check them out below.

Subscription boxes are great way to engage and delight consumers - who wouldn't want a sample selection of beauty products delivered once a month?!
