Best Paint Shop for Girls

Sephora

Let the boys have their fun at their Home Depots. Let them test drive the power tools and ponder paints. Okay, we girls have a gas doing that sometimes, too. But when we're feeling really girly, we head to Sephora and get to paint, blush, gloss, powder, and spritz to our hearts' content -- and with cosmetics we had only read about in Vogue! Yes, it's a chain. But having been previously relegated to oohing and aahing over the goods on the Web site or having bought one too many tubes of the wrong color red lipstick from a flourescently lit makeup counter, we're happy to join a chain gang.
