Monopoly: Sephora Edition
I always considered Monopoly a unisex kind of game. Anyone who is finance savy could play the game, even for fun right? Well, this November sees the debut of Monopoly: Sephora Edition, a collaboration between the beauty retailer and the classic board game. Except this time, only beauty rules apply: players go to jail for bad hair days, advance to go for getting a manicure, pay fines for streaky self tanner application, and purchase products with beauty bucks. When players own an entire cosmetic category, they can place Sephora shopping bags on their properties and eventually upgrade to Sephora stores; they can also get ahead by stocking their stores with the most beauty products. Lending their names to the whimsical game are some of the industry’s top beauty brands. There’s Stila in Gloss Gardens, Make Up For Ever on Lipstick Lane, Nars on Cheek Street, Murad at Cleanser Crossing, and Bliss on Lotion Avenue. The Monopoly: Sephora Edition retails for $45. I guess this may beat the boring universal Monopoly version.
