SEPHORA is big on Tumblr, Instagram and Pinterest!
Although Sephora has a strong social presence across the board, the
visual nature of their products and current digital trends point to
Pinterest as the top influencer.
The fastest growing social network, Pinterest drives more referral
traffic than Google+, LinkedIn and YouTube combined.

reported that Pinterest users spend 15 times more on products than
Facebook followers do.
This is likely due to the intention of users on those networks – Facebook
is seen as a social tool for connection, while Pinterest is a shopping
bulletin board known for impressive referral traffic.
Lessons to learn from Sephora
Pinterest provides a visual design board for product promotion, as
well as adds value for users by way of category organization,
direct linking and lifestyle inclusion.
For example, Sephora’s boards are not just “Blush” or “Lipstick,” but
uniquely fit for occasions, trends and topics.
