The SEPHORiA Diaries 2023


Another SEPHORiA, another diary! I was thrilled to hear that SEPHORiA would be back in person this year after a 4 year hiatus, and even more so that it was going to be in New York. 

This Community has given me so much over the last decade, and this truly was like a family reunion. I’ve been friends with so many of y’all for years and years, this event is just the most beautiful excuse to get together ❤️


Unfortunately for us, Mother Nature had other plans. As I waited in line for Session 1, the NYC governor declared a state of emergency due to the inclement weather (severe rainstorms). 

There was also something going on with the venue, likely due to the storms. They cancelled the event about 20 minutes after Gold Key holders were supposed to be inside. 

While we weren’t able to go in and see all the amazing booths, they still let us redeem our swag bags. 


So sorry I didn’t get to meet more of you! Our Ambassador group was able to at least get together for a picture. Fingers crossed that we might be let in tomorrow 🤞 



Session 2 is also cancelled, if you were supposed to come make sure you check your emails! They are offering a resolution.

@happy118 We really use Sephoria as an excuse for a Sephora Beauty Insider Community Reunion, so we definitely made lemonade out of missing day 1.

@Mcakes  ^^^ THIS!!!! I was so amused at how we were the only people still smiling after the announcement.  

Re: The SEPHORiA Diaries 2023

@Mcakes Sorry to hear about the weather emergency, that's terrible! I hope you all stay dry and safe. And with a little luck the event can resume tomorrow.🤞🤞
