Instead of going for just a pop-up filled with rooms like YSL, Clarins appeals to our bellies with an ice cream bar. The beauty brand has partnered with local creamery Birds Of Paradise for a customized ice cream bar, featuring flavors that pay homage to key ingredients found in Clarins’ best-selling makeup and skin are. The limited edition Cherry Basil flavor is a nod to the Acerola Cherry that can be found in Clarins’ White Plus range. And yes, the pink pop-up is decorated with neon signs and photo booths so that you can snap a couple pics for the ‘gram.
Other than having gelato, you can also get customized skincare recommendations for the Hydra-Essentiel Duo, White Plus Duo and Spring 2019 “Selfie-Ready” Makeup Collection that will be launching first at this pop-up before the collections are available at the counters.
