Photo Tour: Amore (Aritaum) Store Visit in Chinatown, NYC

I added another Photo Tour to my NYC Chinatown K-Beauty Shopping Guide! I know the post title is a little confusing – is this an Amore or Aritaum store visit? And since when is there an Aritaum in NYC?!!?! Aritaum is owned by Amore Pacific, the beauty conglomerate in Korea. Think of it as the LVMH behemoth that owns practically 80% of the luxury and mid-level beauty market *don’t quote me on that percentage. Amore carries Amore Pacific’s sub-brands like Sulwhasoo, Laneige, IOPE, Mamonde and of course some Aritaum products. Sadly, the Amore Pacific line can only be found it at Sephora or Bergdorf Goodman’s. Amore is a great testing ground if you’re interested in pH stripping, gift set ogling or color swatching that BB cushion you have your eyes on. Click to see my photo tour!

(CLOSED) Store Visit: TonyMoly Opening on 61 E. Broadway (Chinatown, NYC)

I was right when I said that TonyMoly is out to take over America! TonyMoly stores have been multiplying here in New York City and another one opened in Chinatown, New York City. This new location is on a more obscure street of Chinatown where locals go to food shop, bank and run errands. It looks like it will open sometime this month as I was able to see products being stocked on shelves and they are still hiring sales associates who speak Chinese and English.

Photo Tour MEGA POST: Tony Moly Flagship Opening in Ktown, NYC [UPDATE 8/2017] This is no longer a Tony Moly Flagship Store. It is now known as Kosette and sells multiple K-beauty brands such as It’s Skin, Too Cool For School, Innisfree and of course a ton of Tony Moly’s offerings. [Original Post] The cuteness mothership has arrived. Pandas, apples, bananas, peaches, snails and bunnies – REJOICE! I’ve had the pleasure of attending the VIP opening event for the Tony Moly Flagship Store opening on Friday, June 26, 2015. The celebration included a social media contest drawing, an in-store raffle, free gifts, hair/makeup makeovers and grand opening specials! This space was formerly the Koryo bookstore that also shared space with The Face Shop. When renovation was underway, The Face Shop moved a few stores down into a new storefront and I suppose this was the perfect opportunity for Tony Moly to take over Ktown! The entire space reopened with Kpop and books/media on the right side, Tony Moly on the left side and Shine 32 (Kpop style accessories and jewelry) taking up the second floor.

The Flagship boasts a Tony Moly Lifestyle experience because it has a hair styling and makeup area in the back where you can make private appointments for a makeup and skincare consultations.  There is also a Brow Lounge that displays their selection of false eyelashes and recommended brow makeup to complete your look.

The Flagship also operates the official U.S. ecommerce site,  if you’ll remember from my Chinatown Tony Moly Photo Tour, the site was still under construction! Now it’s officially opened for business so if you’re not located in New York City, this is where you can buy authentic product direct from Tony Moly and not through a distributor. Click on to see my photo tour of the new space and enter in my FIRST GIVEAWAYView Post

If you read PART ONE of my Urban Outfitters Photo Tour, you’ll know that the Urban Outfitters in Herald Sq, New York City has the BIGGEST selection in Asian/Korean Beauty products out of any other UO in the states. In PART TWO of my Photo Tour in Urban Outfitters, I’d to focus on the Peach and Lily event where CEO/Founder Alicia Yoon gave one on one skincare consultations and a free swag bag. In ADDITION to your purchase, Urban Outfitters was also giving away free gifts with ANY purchase so there were two freebies in one purchase for their one year celebration at Herald Sq – AWESOME.
