Fresh Cosmetics has been a makeup-drawer staple since the '90s, supplying us with indulgent, effective and downright delicious products. This fall, the natural-beauty innovator has kicked things up with a massive renovation of its Union Square flagship.
Besides the serious detailing and unique design concept--think shelves of leather-bound books and molecule-inspired chandeliers--we're super excited about the store's gleaming new "Sensorial Bar," which features six discontinued, customer-favorite fragrances. (We almost protested when the beautiful, earthy Violet Moss was taken off the market.) Available in 15ml and 100ml glass vials ($22 to $154), the scents range from the sensual, flowery Tuberosa to the citrusy, crisp Pear Cassis. Our favorite is the Tobacco Caramel, a woodsy blend of mandarin and amber that feels just right for fall.
After you stock up on Sugar Honey lip balms ($23) and beautifully packaged soaps ($14), try Fresh's best-selling Sugar Face Polish ($55)--which you can rinse off at the lovely antique basin in the back of the store--or get a complimentary mini facial with the hydrating Rose Face Mask.
