JKNLEE SALE UPDATE:
Your best bet at getting the best stock at the JKNLEE K-Beauty Sample Sale is by getting there as early as 10:30AM! There were some new things that were put out as I didn’t recognized some items (I crept by the window at night because they wouldn’t let you in past 6pm). They have a very organized way of allowing the maximum amount of people through the doors as a means of crowd control. Each shopper is handed a plastic shopping bag with a number on it and when the shopper pays and exits, a new shopper gets their chance inside. There’s someone monitoring the door at all times so I didn’t feel like it was chaotic at all. See my insider photos when you click to read more! (more…)
I walk through Chinatown, NYC in order to go to work every morning and I noticed a new store was about to open on the corner of Catherine Street and East Broadway. There was no signage but I can look in easily through the ceiling to floor windows and saw a design board with Club Clio’s logo on the color samples for the walls! I was psyched that another k-beauty store was coming into town so I took a picture of the storefront for my records and waited for some sort of announcement before I leaked my photo out. Through IG, there was a Sample Sale announcement from JKNLee, a new k-beauty ecommerce site that houses Club Clio, Goodal, Peripera, Dr. G, Ostia, SOO AE, and even Tony Moly.

1/9/16 EDIT: I published a new post with updated in-store photos and more details with pricing, products and how to shop!
I bought two Peripera Lumi Pang lip glosses because I saw a raving review of these online and couldn’t resist getting these faced with a BOGO deal on Clio’s NYC Union Sq grand opening. They’re $18USD each and you can get these priced at $7 from other e-tailers (just be mindful of shipping since they are shipped straight from Korea, for these, I suggest RoseRoseShop priced at $6.99 if you plan to buy a few more items n your order). I’ll review the Cushion Lips in a future post.
I’m drawn to Reds and Corals and I realize that these two shades don’t look too different out of the boxes but the RD05 “Sensual” has a berry tint to it (and Peri’s recommended shade) and the RD03 “Hi Twenty” is more coral. (more…)
Club Clio had opened it’s first Manhattan store back in Jan 2015 and I didn’t start my blog until today so I thought I would share some things from my first visit and some things I’ve learned since opening day.
Club Clio Union Sq location: 11 W 14th St, New York, NY 10011

I visited early Feb, a month after grand opening and they still had Grand Opening specials. The most enticing offer to me was the Buy One Get One Free offer on all Peripera lip products! The second promo I snagged was the Buy 10 Sheet Masks and get 5 Free (priced at $1 per sheet mask). So for $10, you get 15 masks in total – sure, I can try those out! They also had BOGO on their Goodal Want Sleeping Packs but priced at $40 each (while online prices were cheaper) I didn’t pull the trigger on those. (more…)
