LA Beauty Discoveries

by Joyce in


This past weekend, we took a road trip to LA and I had the chance to explore some fun beauty shops. I spotted some fun new-to-me things, so I thought I'd share it with you!

First up, I got to meet up with my friend Marianna at Space NK. So exciting, as I haven't seen her since earlier this year and she had never been to Space NK! The SA's were busy, but we sniffed a lot of Diptyque, stared at skincare, and covered ourselves in shimmery eyeshadow shades from Laura Mercier, Nars, and By Terry. I definitely spotted a few things that made it onto my wishlist....

While wandering around some cute shops, I discovered Apolis candles, an LA based store with a neat selection of clothing and accessories. But more importantly, I went to Scent Bar, a cute little boutique from the guys at Lucky Scent. (I'm dying. That place is amazing. I wish I lived in that store. See the next handful of photos for proof of concept, haha!) 

I should have taken more pictures of the store, but I was really occupied by taking pictures of scents I found interesting... I love how the store was styled by scent family, and there were just so many amazing things to sniff. 

Last but not least, I somehow wandered into the beauty section at Fred Segal, and seem to have only taken photos of fragrances that were interesting. More Histoires de Parfums catching my eye, and the fragrance blending kit that looks SO intriguing... 

And OMG, Memoire Liquide = bespoke perfumes. I can't even begin to think about this. (!!!!)

Hope you enjoyed the photos! Have you tried any of these brands or products? If so, how did you like them?
