Last week I stopped by a few of my favorite beauty shops in NYC. Living in Southern California I am lucky to have access to most brands but often times don't have a free standing boutique near me for some stores to get the full experience. I was beyond thrilled to stop by Space NK's newest New York Boutique on 31 Prince Street in Nolita. This was my first time inside a free standing store and it is a beauty lover's dream come true. Between Space NK and Birchbox Soho - you literally have all your beauty and grooming (for men) needs covered. Both stock a wide variety of mid to high end beauty brands and from the looks of it, they have everything one could need and in travel sizes too. As I was oohing and aaahing at all the shelves in Space NK, by I thought to myself I should have skipped the stress of trying to hoard minis and pack all my liquids into a quart size bag (since I travel carry-on style) and made this store my first stop in once I arrived in the city.
The store is located on the corner of Prince and Mott - it's one of the most charming beauty spaces I've been inside. There's a lot stocked in the store covering skincare, hair care, cosmetics and more - at the same time it's very spacious with a wide open feeling that gives it a luxurious feel. Walking inside is pretty amazing - I could not help but wish that I had a space like this in my home. Displays are organized by brand and product type. Skincare is split into different walls for the natural brands, more techy brands etc. I had just missed a Dr. Lancer appearance and book signing which happened at the store a few days prior. There are decicated areas for Lancer Skincare.
So much love for By Terry, can I have one of everything please?

Overall a must-stop if you visit New York City. There are quite a few Space NK stores located through the city, I was glad I stopped by this one as it's in a cute neighborhood and Diptyque is just around the corner. It has a similar vibe and feel to the dedicated Space NK sections you may see inside a Bloomingdale's (which I also love) but being able to visit a separate store is really a must if you can.
Many thanks to Space NK for allowing me to take photos inside their beautiful store. Next time I'm in New York I won't be packing a lot of items, I know now that I can simply stop by here and purchase what I need as they carry my favorite brands.
Have you been inside a Space NK store before? I know they are all over the US but this is my first time visiting a dedicated store. Hope you enjoyed this peek into their space! Snippets on their social too @spacenkusa - something I live vicariously through since I don't have a store near me. It's nice to see snapshots of their stores around the country and new launch sneak peeks.
P.S. There's a summer sale going on right now, some items are marked up to 50% off :)
