Beauty Mark. I have to admit that I’m very fickle when it comes to beauty products. When I find something I love then I love it and use it but after a while my eye starts to wander and then it’s time to go find something new and fun. When those cravings begin I make a beeline for one shop only: Beauty Mark.
As you can see it’s actually pretty easy to get overwhelmed in here (definitely not complaining!). There are so many great things: fantastic makeup, hard to find beauty products and so many other inspiring pieces. Whenever I’m looking for some new hair accessories I head right over. As a bonus Beauty Mark also carries a full assortment of Hanky Panky underwear which is hands down the best out there! I often get special requests from my friends (mostly the guys) in Poland to send over a few pairs for their girlfriends…..
With so many amazing beauty products it can be hard to narrow them all down but there are definitely a few that I keep coming back to. A perennial favourite is Fresh, I can’t always afford their products but when I have a few extra dollars, it’s the Rose Face Mask for me. It’s a cooling gel that has real rose petals in it and smells absolutely fantastic. Pure luxury. Another company I turn to on a regular basis is Bliss. Their super slough scrub is the best body scrub I’ve ever used. I feel like it’s a no nonsense product that does exactly what it says it will do.
I’m seriously hoping that I’m not the only one who gets a stupid grin on her face when she sees a counter like this. I could play here all day. Way back when, I did a short stint working at a beauty counter and while it wasn’t the job of my dreams, I was lucky enough to go take a product class. Yes it was geared to one specific product but we had a rather extensive application lesson which was indispensable. Now I know exactly what I’m looking for amidst all this fabulousness and I understand the importance of proper application.
They carry so many nail polishes that I literally couldn’t fit them all into one shot.
This is where I need to admit that I don’t like wearing nail polishe on my finger nails but I go crazy with it on my toes! I think because I’ve work extensively with people, having clean well manicured hands has always been important to me. One thing I can’t stand is peeling and chipping nail polish and it’s because of this that I just avoid it. That’s okay though, I have ten toes I can play with and there are more than enough colours here to last me a lifetime!
Of course if nail polish isn’t your thing, just turn around and you are greeted by a jewelry case packed to the brim. I dare anyone to not find something they love in here!
I always leave here happy and let me point out that today I didn’t even make upstairs…..
