I love makeup and beauty products, especially those that take care of my skin. Whenever I go to New York I take advantage of the discounts and buy a lot of new things to try and, obviously, I stock my favorite products. In addition to being more affordable in the United States, there is even more variety and incredible promotions there.
NY stores are always with news and exclusive items, so use your time there to explore these establishments. I selected for you some of the coolest and different places in the city to buy beauty products! Write it all down, because I’m sure you’ll need it sometime 😉
Glossier is a super different store, I swear! Starting with the salespeople, who only wear pink and are super attentive. Even the decor of the place is cute – very clean and minimalist. The makeup products are amazing and with very good quality. The brand sells products online, but the only physical store is in New York. That is, it is quite an opportunity to test a new product.
This is a store for those who enjoy a more natural make-up, in the Asian style, which is very popular, you know? The products are very light and leave that beautiful glow on the skin.
Birchbox is known in the United States for sending surprise boxes to the brand’s subscribers. It works like this: you sign up and receive in your box a box with beauty products in your home. The good news is that there is a Birchbox physical store in New York and you can choose which products you want in your box.
Ah, these items inside the box are smaller than the common ones, because they are like “tests”. Even though it is a mini size, it is great for those who just want to see how something works and if it works on the skin, for example. They even sell men’s items and you don’t have to sign up to get a Birchbox from the store!
For those who enjoy sustainability and fashion, Credo is perfect. They care about the components of makeup products and make a selection of eco-friendly and cruelty-free brands, as well as selling some organic cosmetics. The store also has a very clean decor and a wide range of products, from skin care to makeup and hair products. It’s worth testing!
TonyMoly is a well-known brand in South Korea and has recently been successful in New York. For some time now, Asian beauty products have become quite commercialized, such as The Mask Bar, a place full of facial masks.
It is very worthwhile to go there, especially if you like to try very different products. In addition to countless options for skin care, including masks, you probably won’t be able to leave the store without a makeup product, after all, the packaging is very cute. There you will find good options for the skin (bases and light concealers), but it is also worth taking a look at the “tints”, which are normally red pigments that give a little color to the lips and can even be used as a blush.
Like Credo, Shen Beauty focuses on selling products with organic base and also several exclusive items, carefully selected by the store owners. The cool thing is that you find incredible brands in one place and most of them are imported – like from England, for example. In addition to this product curation, they select very technological and innovative things.
I couldn’t help mentioning Sephora, right? Even though there are several units in Brazil and in the world, I still think that NY stores are worth at least one visit. They sell even more products than Brazilian stores and there you can even find exclusive collections. Not to mention that prices tend to be more worthwhile, of course.
As I said at the beginning of the post, I take advantage that I’m there to buy several units of the products I use the most, such as beauty blender and my favorite eyeliner, from Marc Jacobs. It is practically impossible to leave Sephora without a bag!
These are the most interesting stores for those who like makeup. If you know any more different options and with cool products, count here! Sharing tips and experiences is always good. Ah, if you want to see my shopping video in NY just click here 🙂
