At JCPenney, the beauty aisles have completely transformed into a treasure trove of viral sensations, with shelves stacked with skincare goodies, makeup must-haves, haircare heroes and lots more. It’s a beauty lover’s paradise, and here’s why it’s causing a stir.
Sephora might have abandoned JCPenney in favor of Kohl’s stores back in 2020, but it hasn’t ruffled their feathers one bit. The retailer introduced its new beauty concept in 2021 and has been busy rolling it out in stores and online ever since. It’s no wonder TikTokers are spreading the word about this beauty hot spot that’s become a legit alternative to Sephora and Ulta.
JCPenney Beauty celebrates inclusivity, too, with its own Thirteen Lune collection, featuring products from established and indie players from over 60 BIPOC and/or female-founded beauty brands.
Our very own editor, Kristin McGrath, made a bee-line to her nearest JCPenney store and says, “Overall, the experience was very chill, clean and they had plenty of testers. Less chaotic than Sephora.”
But more than just having a really cool shopping experience, JCPenney saves you money and gives you exclusive perks through their free rewards program, like an extra 30% off your first purchase after signing up. You can earn rewards on every qualifying purchase, including beauty products and salon services.
Here are some viral and trending products (some even on sale) that actually work and you can shop right now:
