SO MANY CHANGES. Huge ones too. The closest Ulta retailer in San Rafael is/was a number of miles south of me, and we have been simply driving down Freeway 101 final weekend after I noticed that the shop was shut down, seems like completely. There have been large “closed” indicators within the home windows. Cue glittery tears. ?
I’m so bummed as a result of I used to spend hours wandering round that place pre-COVID. They’d an incredible number of hair conditioners and styling merchandise from greater finish to price range. One in every of my favourite issues to do was learn the labels on the hair merchandise…
Oh, and the opposite day I acquired an electronic mail from SpaceNK saying that my close by retailer in Larkspur is closing as effectively.
I did an occasion with them a number of years again, and I’ve a comfortable spot for that retailer and the endlessly variety and educated make-up artists who work there. Actually unhappy to see them go!
My favourite factor to do there was to play with their Byredo fragrance show. I’d go in and spray each scent that they had on every obtainable sq. inch of pores and skin on my physique, hoping I’d uncover a brand new fragrance to like greater than Gypsy Water (however, ultimately, I’ve all the time liked Gypsy Water essentially the most; go determine).
As for Sephora, the closest one to me at Classic Oaks right here in Novato has been shut down for months. Like, actually boarded up so you’ll be able to’t even peek by means of the home windows. I feel the final time I used to be in that retailer was both January or February. I’ve ordered a number of issues from Sephora since then, however I haven’t stepped right into a bodily Sephora retailer in a protracted whereas… I ponder what they seem like now with out the testers. Would I be afraid to the touch something? It’s loopy to me to think about all of the instances I sat in a chair in Sephora whereas a make-up artist confirmed me a brand new product or taught me a brand new method.
Like I mentioned, a lot of large magnificence (and different) retailer modifications out this manner.
How about in your neck of the woods? How has magnificence (and non-beauty) retail retailer procuring modified to this point this 12 months the place you’re?
Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
