Sephora and Instagram Make Social Shopping Even Simpler

Sephora revealed its new digital collaboration with Instagram, bringing beauty inspiration and shopping together for one seamless client experience. Together, the leading prestige beauty retailer and social platform are building the best online shopping experience for the @sephora community of 20 million followers. In this new digital storefront, you can buy a product available with checkout right from your feed or stories at the moment of inspiration. Sephora has brought along more than 80 of its brands onto Instagram checkout to make client shopping faster, easier, and more convenient. This allows these brands to scale their business on the inspirational platform and provides a connected beauty buying experience across different Instagram accounts.

“Sephora is thrilled to work with Instagram on this unique social shopping experience,” said Carolyn Bojanowski, SVP and GM of eCommerce for Sephora. “Our clients engage with social media in so many ways, like drawing inspiration from the community, getting tips from experts or learning about new beauty trends so we’re always looking for new ways to enhance that beauty journey. We’re excited to deliver Instagram checkout, a new, seamless, direct, and secure way to shop across our brands’ accounts, while still getting the perks of being a Sephora client.”
