If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know I’m currently living in New York. There are many things I love about this city but, one of the things I love the most, is the variety of beauty stores in Manhattan. To be honest, there’s a variety of everything here, but I’m a beauty junkie so I naturally gravitate to beauty stores. And I know a lot of you do to!
That’s why I decided to create this mini series on the blog. Over the course of the next two months I’ll be sharing my favorite places to shop beauty in the city and share why I love them so much. I know there’s a lot of people who visit NYC all the time and they’re always looking for things to do. Hopefully visiting some of these stores can be added to the list!
I’m starting the series off with Ricky’s NYC. I discovered Ricky’s NYC a few years ago and I like to believe it’s one of the best discoveries I’ve made in the short period of time that I’ve been on this planet.
They have several different locations in the New York area and a couple in Miami. So no matter where you’re staying, chances are, theres a Ricky’s NYC close by.
This store is a beauty lover’s dream! They’ve got skincare, makeup, haircare and so much more. This is technically a beauty supply store where professionals stock up on what they need but anyone can go in and buy things.
They’ve got a bunch of different brands that are hard to get a hold of like Bioderma, Coloured Raine, Ben Nye, etc. They have a huge section for hair products and tools as well. And, of course they’re stocked up on skincare products.
The stores are very big and they have a huge selection of products, which can get overwhelming. But there’s always someone willing to help. I love their vibe and one of my favorite things is their toothpaste (??) logo.
They carry very affordable brands, like NYX and they also carry more expensive brands, like Skindinavia. So pricing depends on what you’re buying.
If you’re a beauty lover like me and you love trying out new beauty products then this store is the place for you. If you’re a working or aspiring artist, this store is definitely the place for you.
Next time you visit New York, wether you’re looking to try something new or repurchase a favorite, Ricky’s NYC will definitely have it all.
Have you ever been to one? Let me know what your experience was like!
Thank you all so much for reading!
See you next week,
