Finally – it’s here! In what’s possibly the most exciting thing to happen to the Irish beauty scene in, oh, forever, Space NK has opened its first standalone store in Ireland. Sure, we’ve had a counter in Harvey Nicks, Dundrum, for yonks but this, my friends, this is an entirely different – and somewhat overwhelming – proposition.
Think rows upon rows of all of those covetable, lustworthy brands that we’ve never been able to shove our fingers in for swatching before – including Lipstick Queen, Kevyn Aucoin, Hourglass and more. Think Oribe’s Dry Texturising Spray, Malin + Goetz shower gel (previously only seen in The Marker) and Sarah Chapman’s Instant Miracle Mask. Think of any cult product you’ve seen raved about by beauty editors and international bloggers and then think: finally, this stuff is within our grasp. Mind. Blown.
You’ll find Space NK opposite BT2 on Grafton Street - and chances are, you’ll find me there, too.
I’m concerned I’ll be bankrupt by Christmas. But by God I’m going to be fabulous.
