We were getting a bit bored of our usual trips to The Body Shop and Forest Essentials stores in Panjim. So when we heard Nykaa had a new store, we made a run for it. From everyone’s favourite sheet masks to eye shadows and face oils to perfumes, the multi-brand beauty store is a true beauty junkie’s delight.
Calling All Sheet Mask & Lipstick Junkies! Nykaa Finally Has A Store In Goa
What Makes It Awesome
Few brands promote impulse buying like Nykaa does and if you haven’t walked out with a packet of goodies, utterly guilty of having overshot your budget, we don’t even know who you are; blame the brand for making us buy things we never knew we needed. Our favourite sections are one with matte nail paints and the famous sheet masks (OMG the avocado and red wine ones are so adorable at INR 100).
You can expect the usual slew of Davidoff, Burberry and Carolina Herrera perfumes along with a K-Beauty brand called Tony Moly. We crushed on macaroon-shaped lip balms and used this as an opportunity to check out HUDA Beauty lip shades and stock up on Kama Ayurveda lotions and potions as well.
So if you’re in Goa and have a concealer emergency or are invited for a glittery party that you just didn’t plan for, there’s Nykaa to your rescue. Oh, and those who stay in Goa, you don’t really need a reason to buy that green apple lip balm. Or do you?
While the store is up and running, they’re waiting for a couple of international brands to still have their dedicated counters. Think everything from Bobbi Brown and Estee Lauder to Smashbox, so if you wait for about a month, you’ll have a lot more to choose from.
