In our newly released fall 2015 issue, we featured CosBar; a luxury cosmetics shop with a twist; cosmetics are served with a side of compassion.

The new downtown hangout is taking up residency at Brookfield Place, and after its initial installation among the sea of lavish brand names, the beauty shop is having an official grand opening with founder, Lily Garfield, making a debut, on October 16th.

CosBar at Brookfield Place marks the brands 14th location, and first ever in New York. AND, you can attend the grand opening for the grandest city on earth. By rsvping on the CosBar website, you’ll be able to mingle, meet the owner and learn about her compassionate ethos. Garfield’s incentive to open shop was solely for customer satisfaction, telling us at Downtown Magazine, “We promote the customer, not the brand.”

The festivity will include champagne, mini-facials, makeup applications, beauty demos and a gift with each purchase. Plus, 10% of all in-store sales will be donated to Cancer and Careers.
