Top airport beauty vending machines
Beauty blogger Huda Kattan has such a big following she has launched her first vending machine carrying her cruelty-free mink lashes and faux nail sets in the Dubai Sunset Mall. U’tique is offering high end best sellers in an ultra modern way at Fred Segal in LA. Chanel’s Nailmatic machine was initially intended to promote new products like nail polishes and Le Volume mascara.

The Essie Color Boutique in major airports across the US holds 48 shades from the main collection and six from rotating seasonal collection. Now you have no worries if you have a chipped nail or you have some time to kill at the airport. I’d pass on giving yourself a pedicure wait you wait though. Look for the airport salon called Be Relax that could offer a fabulous pedicure and foot massage before you hop on the plane.
I realize that nothing replaces that face to face service with your beauty expert but this is a perfect last minute purchase for that OMG moment when you realize your forgot to pack your mascara or sunscreen. It’s great for the brands you already know and have tried.
The only problem I foresee is one of the products getting trapped on the way down the machine after purchase.
That brings me back to my high school days in the cafeteria when you could just call on the closest jock to give the machine a little tip to the side to retrieve that Snickers Bar that got stuck. My word of advice…. please don’t get arrested at the airport over a mascara!
