Fans of this suburban beauty superstore used to have to travel to New Jersey or Long Island to get their makeup fix, but now they can simply hop on the subway to get to the chain’s Queens location—the first in the five boroughs. Located in the giant Rego Center shopping complex, this shiny white store is like a Sephora on steroids, featuring high-end makeup like Napoleon Perdis China Doll foundation ($50), designer fragrances including Miss Dior Cherie ($60) and drugstore beauty items such as Maybelline eye-shadow compacts ($6). There are also house-brand products including shampoo and conditioner ($7 each), as well as a selection of styling tools in the back (we swoon for Hot Tools cheetah-print flatirons, $60). Those looking to get dolled up on-site can visit the eight-chair salon in the back for a cut ($35–$55) or highlights ($95–$125), hit the Benefit brow bar for a wax ($20), or stop by the Dermalogica spa chair for a 20-minute eye-rescue or flash exfoliation treatment ($20 each).
