Locally owned for 43 years, Gwynn's of Mt. Pleasant combines the very best cosmetics, clothing, and fine gifts into one timeless department store. Customers can peruse a treasure trove of old-fashioned glass-topped pharmacy cases, assisted by a team of salespeople groomed in world-class customer service. A veritable beauty apothecary, the cosmetics department is crowded with lotions, powders, and creams in jars, bars, bottles, and full-body jellysuits. Top-of-the-line cosmetics include brands such as Darphin, Diptyque, and Bond No. 9, the preferred beauty line of secret agents everywhere. Slather skin with Kiehl's cr?me de corpe body moisturizer ($45, 16.9 oz.), or foster a flawless facial finish with Laura Mercier foundation primer ($30, 1.7 oz.). A tube of Trish McEvoy high-volume mascara ($28) not only creates come-hither lashes, but it can also paint a convincing mustachio during phone booth or elevator disguise changes.
