My friend and blogger pal- Nicole Kestenbaum of Lipstick & Brunch recently held an event at Look Boutique. Now, Look Boutique is not like an average “boutique,” it’s an upscale beauty bar located in the Walgreens off Sage and Westheimer in the Galleria neighborhood in Houston. This particular location is in fact, the ONLY one in Texas. Think of Look Boutique as a hybrid between a higher-end beauty department (like Sephora or Macy’s) and the Walgreens beauty aisle. The boutique features French, UK and cult-favorite skincare and beauty products that you wouldn’t normally find anywhere else.
Their current skincare brands are: Avene, La Roche, Vichy, Lierac, Nuxe, Dr.Hauschka,Bioxidea, Rilastil, Le Couvent des Minimes, Talika and Klorane. Their current cosmetic brands are: Vera Moore, Pür Minerals, Studio Makeup, POP, Vincent Longo, The Balm, Cargo and 100% Pure. They carry OPI, China Glaze and Essie nail polishes. They carry Macbeth cosmetic bags and LUG travel bags. They also carry the quirky Demeter Fragrance Library (with scents such as: ‘Dirt,’ ‘Funeral Home,’ ‘Marshmellow,’ ‘Soap,’ ‘Earthworm,’ ‘Dust’ and ‘Clean Windows’) and Edia cosmetics for Hair.
Upon first glance, this place is pretty amazing and a beauty lover’s dream come true. The fixtures are bright and modern, taking careful consideration to making the space look young and fresh. Nicole was totally in her element! Her face just lit the room as she was discussing her favorite products, such as the ‘Hot Mama’ blushes from The Balm and Klorane’s dry shampoos. I have to admit, I was even overwhelmed…but am anxious to go back with a bigger budget.
There were complimentary skin analysis/consultations and make-up touchups by the Look Boutique cosmetologists. Guests were also able to leave with gifts with a $30 purchase and participate in raffles.
