On Thursday, Birchbox Local will open its doors to the public at Chelsea Market. (Currently, it's only open to members of the media and press.) For five days, shoppers will be able to book hair, makeup, and manicure touch-ups, create personalized boxes from the mega sample wall, and purchase full-size products from a handful of the company's top vendors.
Each of the services will cost you around $15, and you can book an appointment here. As far as those samples go, when we stopped by this weekend, we found plenty of goodies: Smashbox makeup, Benefit brow gel, Origins skincare, Stila lipstick, and more. The shop will be open from 10am to 8pm daily, and will stay open an extra hour on Saturday.
