How To Spend A Lunch Hour: Walgreens' New Beauty Boutique

walgreens-slide
Confession: It's pretty rare that a new store triggers intense feelings of longing and desire in our hearts. Sure, we get excited about new shopping opps, but until now, it hasn't been something we think about a million times a day — keyword, until now. Introducing our newest retail obsession: the third-floor Look beauty boutique inside the brand-spanking-new Walgreens in Chinatown. Not only is this the most insane drugstore in the entire city — there's a frozen yogurt counter and a smoothie bar, if you need proof — but the entire third floor is devoted to beauty. Inside the light-flooded space, you'll find everything from the expected drugstore brands to some of our favorite cult beauty lines: think Cargo makeup, Pop nail polishes, Boots No. 7 makeup and skin care, Demeter fragrances, and Talika nail products, just for starters. Oh, and did we mention there's an in-house nail salon? Believe it. Seriously, if you haven't made the field trip yet, we highly suggest spending your lunch hour just getting lost among myriad testers. The best part? The prices are so reasonable, you can still afford to buy lunch.
