Chock full of the market’s most luxe cosmetics, the venerable den known as Violet Grey later became a full-fledged boutique. Now, its selection of high-end products is available online.

Semi-lustrous Laura Mercier lipsticks ($26) and shimmery Tom Ford eyeshadow palettes ($78) are shelved in the virtual shop alongside Bobbi Brown bronzer brushes ($54) and glossy JINsoon nail polishes ($18). Products from Dior, NARS, La Prairie and more are included in the assortment of face and body treasures.

So while you contemplate the purchase of Eve Lom lip moisturizer ($22) or peach-hued By Terry blush ($43), you’ll have something interesting to read.
