Sephora's new beauty delivery service

For perpetually busy Manhattanites with no time to shop for groceries—let alone makeup—Sephora's new beauty-delivery service is a convenient, time-saving alternative. Avoid lines and bad weather by calling 877-SEPHORA (877-737-4672) between 8 and 11am Monday through Friday to order from brands like Make Up for Ever, Dior and Clinique. A uniformed "product chauffer" will drive over your loot in a Sephora-branded Mini Cooper between 9am and noon that same day. Deliveries are limited to Manhattan (sorry, outer boroughs!), and you need to spend $50 to be eligible (not to mention the $15 delivery fee). That said, having essential primping tools like Caudalie eye creams ($95), Nars body-bronzing gels ($45) and T3 hair dryers ($200) at your beck and call is pretty priceless.
