New York City has more stores than anyone could physically tackle, but somehow we always keep returning to the usual suspects. To break out of the rut, we've asked some local shopping and fashion gurus to provide their hidden retail gems—those unique stores around our fantastic city that we might not all know about. Cue the Beatles: We're about to get a little help from our friends.

As the Beauty Director at StyleCaster and Editor of Beauty High, Rachel Adler is constantly scouring the globe for the latest in blush and mascara—she's like the Indiana Jones of beauty. So it's no surprise that she managed to find Shen, a shop on Court Street in Cobble Hill that is stocked with mainly organic products.
Shen Beauty in Cobble Hill is my new go-to. The combination of organic and British beauty products is what draws me in most. I love just browsing the shelves to discover new product lines like Kate Logan Beauty or old favorites such as Kahina Giving Beauty. Apparently I never know how to stop working, constantly looking out for the Beauty High reader, whether it's on a Saturday afternoon of window shopping or doing some 'research' on Shen's Pick of the Week section online.· Shen Beauty [Official Site]
