Island Beauty Blooms at DFS

January 24, 2012 | By Nadine Kam

One might assume that visitors to Hawai‘i would opt for a “natural look” in cosmetics while enjoying their jaunt to the islands. But, according to Betsey Lum, merchandise manager for the 19,000 sq. ft. Beauty World at Duty Free Shops, travelers often take the opposite approach.

“They’re more experimental and dramatic while on vacation than they would be when they’re at home,” Lum says.

With more than 60 brands represented in the largest beauty store in all of Hawai‘i, there are plenty of opportunities to experiment here, not to mention complimentary Beauty Concierge services (by appointment), such as hand and foot massages, skin analysis and laser light therapy. Of course, all purchases are tax-free! Call 931-2595 for consultation appointments. [C:7 Waikiki Map]
