Finally, a Visit to Space NK.

With a few hours down time during my jam packed schedule with Glam last week, Christina and I made our way to Space.NK Soho. I was so glad to have finally paid the beautiful space a visit.

This awesome sales associate (cannot find his card!) filled my bag with some awesome samples that I cannot wait to try.

The overall feel of the space is very uptown, yet light and friendly. The shelves are not overcrowded so I could  reach for and smell anything. The Space.NK brand itself contained a great array of fragrant body washes, balms, perfumes, candles and more. They smelled so good.

I needed a new concealer, so I headed on over to one of the many elite makeup brands they carry. I checked out By Terry, Susan Posnick, NARS, Chantecaille, Laura Mercier, and Lipstick Queen. (They are getting Shu Uemura in a few weeks!)

I ultimately decided on the Chantecaille Total Concealer. I selected the shade Ivory as I want a concealer that could take me through my bit of a faux tan that I should be sporting soon, and Alabaster, the shade I would have normally selected, might have been to light. It has a very nice light creamy-gel like feel that leaves a wonderful finish. And a little dab is all I need. This is not just an ordinary concealer I quickly learned either. It contains achantecaille_concealer.jpg special blend of olive oil, tamanu nut oil, light-reflecting particles, chamomile, green tea, orchid, and wild rose. Now that is something your average concealer does not contain. I really love it.

I also scooped up a gorgeous lip gloss in the shade Mimosa. It is a gorgeous golden peachy-pink shade. It is so moisturizing. I need to find a specific brush to use with it as I am afraid I am dipping my finger into the compact too often and using too much.  

I am so thrilled to have discovered Chantecaille, and Space.NK was the perfect place to discover it. If you are ever in the NYC area, you need to make it to one of their two stores in the city. There is the one we went to in Soho at 99 Greene Street, and the other is on Columbus Ave. at 69th. I know you will love it as much as we did.
