Nykaa needs no introduction. In fact, it was one of the stores that brought Korean beauty into limelight. They might have only a meagre two big brands (Innisfree and The Face Shop) on their hands right now. But I’m sure they have scope to bring in more brands. The recent launch of Dear Packer Sheet Masks was an instant hit too. Inspired from Indian Traditions & Korean Invention of Sheet Masks, they were made exclusively for Nykaa to swoon the Indian Audience. A good move in my opinion. And not to forget, Nykaa has on and off discounts and offers going on. So you can grab them at the best deals anytime.
