Aaaaaah! Finally a brand new beauty boutique has opened up in Newcastle, selling only Korean and Japanese beauty and skin-care products!
Mask House UK (original shop in Hong Kong) is now open in Old Eldon Square (just by Starbucks/Nandos) and stocks everything from Etude House to Banila.
After picking up as much Korean & Japanese products as I could (their skin-care is sooo good and their make-up is perfectly packaged) in Hong Kong, I’m so glad now, that I don’t have to travel to the other side of the globe for the latest lipstick shade.
The Mask House UK shop is light, spacious and packed head to toe with so many products, from face-wash to nail varnish. The decor is as sweet as anything, showing off the range of products perfectly.
How adorable are these lip balm macaroons?!
I completely fell in love with the brand Beauty People. Their packaging makes me want to scoop it all up and take it allll to the counter.
They had the most beautiful ‘Snow White’ packaged products. The one in the trackie is already down on my wish list.
One of my favourite brands is Etude House, and I’m so glad it’s now stocked in the city. They’ve everything from lovely hand creams to mascara.
If you haven’t ever tried Korean beauty products, it’s seriously ALL the rage in the Far East and I adore them. The big thing at the moment is the face masks – AND Mask House UK in Newcastle, are currently giving away some free samples in-store. Get in quick!
Their website is coming online soon but in the meantime, head into their new store to check it out or visit them on Facebook or Twitter.
There’s so many fashion and beauty events in Newcastle, that I thought I’d start a monthly summary, highlighting the best ones to pop in your diary. Here’s the top round up this March!
Foxy Hair Extensions Store Launch
Foxy Hair Extensions are having a very big Official launch party and you’re invited to their new store in Newcastle, Ridley Place, to check it out. Marnie Simpson from Geordie Shore will be there to meet & greet fans and there’ll be hair extension and make-up demonstrations.
The Vintage Kilo Sale
The Official Vintage Kilo Sale, returns to Northumbria University Students Union this month. The Vintage Kilo Sale is the UK’s first ever ‘buy by weight’ vintage shopping event. It’s a sister event to the famous Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair, (which I sold vintage at my very self!) and travels across the UK, bringing five tonnes of good quality vintage clothing from the 1960s – 1990s to each event.
It works out at £15 per kilo, meaning all you vintage lovers can get your fix without spending a small fortune.

Vintage Meets Heritage Fair
Imagine stumbling across a plate that you would normally find in a museum cabinet… Well on Sunday 22nd March between 11am and 3pm at the Discovery Museum, you can! There’s vintage clothes, jewellery, and ceramics, alongside stalls holding objects that are normally part of the museum’s collection.
Vintage meets Heritage is the final event in a year-long investigation into shopping in Newcastle from 1880 to 1980. Kids can design a dress for their great grandmother, and there’s an exciting treasure hunt around the museum, encouraging them to find out about retailing and to investigate the whole museum from top to bottom. As part of the Vintage meets Heritage event, the organisers, Projects Galore have teamed up with Fynd to host a mini market of Vintage and Collectables too.
