If you’re anything like us, you like long, romantic walks down the make-up aisle. And in that case, you’ll instantly fall in love with Metropolitain Cosmetics, where you’ll find a super-impressive range of imported make-up, skincare and fragrances. With stores in Sandton City, Hyde Park Corner and Melrose Arch, this beauty joint is a cult favourite for make-up artists – but you don’t have to be a pro to benefit.
Metro Cosmetics stocks an awe-inspiring selection of prestigious beauty brands that you won’t find anywhere else in South Africa, including By Terry, Cinq Mondes, Dear Rose, Delarom, Dr Sebagh, Lipstick Queen, Tan-Luxe and Zelens to name a few. So, you can expect to unearth all sorts of beauty treasures here, from complexion products and skincare treatments, to tanning and eye care.
When you first step into a Metro Cosmetics store you might feel overwhelmed by all the choices, so we suggest going straight to the By Terry counter and picking up some of our favourite products. The Cellularose Moisturising CC Cream is a make-up bag must-have, while the Baume de Rose Body Cream and Body Scrub are just the things if you wish to indulge in a little self-pampering. We’re also huge fans of the Dr Sebagh Self-Tanning Drops for a radiant and healthy-looking sun-free glow as well as the Zelens Active Concealer that’s as much an eye cream as it is a concealer.
Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift or just want to spoil yourself, you’re bound to find what you need at Metro Cosmetics!
