PREP (182 Thames Street), the delightful beauty boutique in the heart of downtown Newport, offers local shoppers a delicious deal: Buy one Lip Slip ® by Sara Happ and get a coveted Lip Scrub free ($24 value). Lip Slip, a colorless luxe balm infused with sweet almond, jojoba and macadamia nut oils, is said to offer the glossiest hydration imaginable. The balm is at its best when applied after exfoliating with a peppermint, cocoa, vanilla bean or cinnamon sugar Lip Scrub.
PREP opened its stylish and sophisticated doors in spring 2008 in a sometimes overlooked but inviting space overlooking bustling Thames Street (look for the signature pink Prep sign across from Brooks Brothers, next to Busker’s and above The Humidor Smoke Shop). Once inside, you’ll discover sleek white cabinets with wooden countertops littered with glittering glosses, beauteous blushes and shimmering shadows, all anchored by a large antique oak library card catalogue showcasing even more brands. In front of the floor to ceiling windows hangs a charming petal chandelier— frankly, Prep is every girl’s dream vanity.
In addition to Sara Happ, high-end brands include Kiehl’s, Becca, Alison Raffaele (including natural, paraben free, environmentally friendly products), Julie Hewitt, Stila, Girlactik Beauty (and their famous eye glazes), Napoleon Perdis, Paul & Joe, Tracy Stern Salon Tea, Becker Eshaya fragrances, Bryce organic and paraben free skin care and Coola sun and skin care. Come play and get gorgeous at Prep!
