Today Sephora turns ten years old, and they're celebrating with a big old paper cake (pictured, out on the sidewalk) at the original, and first New York City Sephora at 555 Broadway in Soho. A tipster, who sent in a photo of the festivities, writes: "Notice that they've repainted the storefront for the special occasion; now it's all white and creamy—instead of grey and gloomy like it's been for the past 10 years." Inside the store, reps from makeup and product companies are giving out samples, a DJ is spinning some tunes, and we've heard they're also offering free facials and spray tans.
