I finally got a chance to thoroughly browse the Duane Reade on 1st Ave and 14th Street where I bought a Pop Beauty lipstick and a Wei East face cleanser. Do those brands sound familiar? The funny thing is that I actually came back here because this is where I found “theBalm Cosmetics” and I couldn’t stop thinking about the Meet Matte eyeshadows. They are so pretty and so classy. I don’t know how else to describe it, I just think the whole style of this brand is brilliant. But, I’m waiting to hear back from them about PR before deciding to shop for at least one of the palettes. I had to wait on buying anything more than the makeup and skincare here, because Friday is rent day and I also wanted good food to match the good weather. I had it in my mind that I would get off the train on 1st Ave to shop and go to the Milk Bar for (my favorite) soft serve cereal & milk, then get some vegan pizza from Two Boots and french fries from Taïm, just to end up on 7th Ave via walking. So, that’s what I did. I wanted a full day to take pictures and enjoy what I love. Now, I’m all excited for tomorrow because I’m shaving my head after two weeks? Maybe 3 weeks since it’s been maintainced. It’s getting disgusting.
A lot of what I picked up was sleek, clean, and new to me. Starting off at the Vera Moore section and ending at Wei East, with Pop Beauty and Cargo Cosmetics in between, I put together a browsing gallery down below. And, by the way, I do plan to go back to Nordstrom since it was a big hit on my IG story, yes.
I even saw this adorable travel makeup case in navy blue. It kinda looks like Versace with the greek key design, doesn’t it?
