Last night, I made my way down to Duane Reade's Look Boutique 40 Wall St location as Christine Tsang of Tineey.com was one of the bloggers hosting this event as she is apart of their VIP Blogger Program. This location is housed in what was a bank which is why it's such an expansive space with fabulous archways. In addition to being able to shop for many of your favorite brands, there are products that are exclusive to Duane Reade Look Boutique such as Gosh Cosmetics (Denmark based and very popular in Europe; however it is exclusive to Duane Reade in terms of being in the US). In addition, they have an eyebrow station, lash station, hair salon (blow outs, wash - this isn't for a color or other types of intensive treatments, nail salon (polish change and with OPI and Essie products). I love that the nail salon area is actually housed in what was Davd Rockefeller's office which still has the mantle that is original to the space. In addition, there are Swarovski Chandeliers throughout the Look Boutique and even in the fireplace of David Rockefeller's former office!
It was a great event to see what Duane Reade is doing within their stores regardless of whether it's a Look Boutique or a regular store. Definitely check out these special stores as they are sprinkled throughout the city and even your local Duane Reade may have unique options that will make your day to day a lot easier.
