Mrs. O says, “Nashville’s niftiest store is…”

Read Lucky? In the August issue they whipped up a feature on fun shops in Nashville.


This was just the excuse I needed (wanted?) to pack a work-related reason into a trip to the home of honky tonk. I popped into The Cosmetic Market–a fun little shop in Acklen Park (and there’s also one in Green Hills).



Honestly, the salespeople were hit or miss…some didn’t know much about the products and some chatted away about the good, bad and the ugly with curious clients.


The interior of this place is very cool, somewhat sterile and even a bit “sporty.” Basically, not my favorite aesthetic, but it was very well organized and brightly lit, with lots of fresh daylight. There were a ton of skin care lines that are more obscure or hard to find like Therapy Systems, Dr. Dennis Gross, Caudalie, Mustela… to name a few.


Here are a few sweet treats I left with:

A yummy hand cream from Tokyo Milk‘s Dark collection



Love and Toast Shampoo and Conditioner



Too Faced Glamour dust (and too faced glitter glue to hold it on!)



Admittedly, I am a PACKAGING JUNKY first, then I’m drawn in by scent and maybe somewhere in there is a need-based incentive to buy (okay, usually I just want it). I will post a review of these products as soon as the last drop is squeezed out of each! (except maybe that glitter….)
