Gloss Beauty Bar is the place to go in Victoria for all your beauty needs. You could spend hours trying all the different products that line the walls of the girly boutique, and getting advice from the expert employees, all of whom are professional makeup artists. In addition to treating yourself to some new face and body goodies, you can also indulge in a spa service. All the treatments take place in a funky loft-like space above the retail area.
Hottest Lines in the Beauty Biz
Gloss Beauty Bar boasts an impressive collection of high-end products. Many of these cult favourites cannot be found anywhere else in the city. Proud purveyors of Canadian lines, Gloss stocks Cargo Cosmetics, Princepessa and Cake Beauty. Other notable international lines include Agent Provocateur, Juara Skincare, Jaqua Beauty, DuWop and Butter London. Always on the cusp of new trends, Gloss is constantly updating its collection and prides itself on offering many celebrity favourites.
Whether you want a quick eyebrow shaping or an hour-and-a-half “Sundari Goddess Treatment,” Gloss has the treatment for you. Basic services like manicures, pedicures and waxings are all available, but Gloss is best known for its indulgent packages featuring deluxe product lines. Going on a tropical vacation? Try the “Bon Voyage” package, which includes leg and bikini waxing and a pampered toes pedicure. Is your skin in need of some TLC after the drying winter months? Try the “Neem Healing Facial Treatment,” which heals, hydrates and firms your skin by using Neem, known in India as the “pharmacy tree.” Gloss also offers makeup applications and lessons in-store as well as on-location services for weddings and other special events.
