H Mart in Fairfax, Virginia recently moved to its new location on 11200 Fairfax Blvd.
I was concerned that the beauty counter tenants from its previous location would move as well. Here’s what HJ said on Nextdoor:
Yes, the beauty counters moved to the new location. Also a small pharmacy, Asian food court, kiddie play corner, a seafood section (follow your nose for that dept), and some parking in the shade are in the new location. Customers are leaving carts all over the parking lot and in precious empty parking spaces instead of pushing them back to the cart corrals, so watch out — or your or your car could hit a cart that’s out of place or rolling around.
Relieved! Naturally, I had to check out the beauty counters. It was gratifying that the beauty advisors remembered me from the old location. Here’s my haul:
- Black Pearl and Gold Hydrogel Eye Patch from Petitfée: cool and refreshing. I like to put these on before I do my eye makeup.
- VDL foundation brush: the saleswoman said that she used this brush to blend concealer. You might be surprised that VDL is an LG brand. That’s right: the same LG that makes flat-screen TVs, washing machines and dryers, and refrigerators also has a skin care and makeup division.
- Skincare samples from The History of 후 (Whoo) and Su:m37, also LG brands. This store is great for handing out freebies!
- Five-ply cotton facial pads: you can peel off layers on these pads.
FYI H Mart has a stand for lower-priced cosmetics, including Tony Moly, Bbi@, and Missha. Please note that the beauty counters are tenants, not part of H Mart.
