A few weeks back I was lucky enough to receive an invite to one of the first local blogger events to hit my home town of Derry. Debenhams, of Foyleside shopping centre were re-launching their AH-MAZING beauty hall and welcoming the fabulous new arrival of none other than the fabulous MAC, and invited local bloggers along for a tour.
We were welcomed with champagne and sweet treats on the rooftop restaurant before being led to the beauty hall, where we were introduced to some of the top brands and shown what they have to offer.
More after the jump . . .
Our first port of call, which needed no introduction, was Benefit. Where the gorgeous 'benebabes' gave us a tour of their new private beauty room, where customers can receive a spray tan, body waxing and eyelash tinting away from the hustle and bustle of the beauty hall. We were even assured that they offer a painless . . . yes you read that correctly, painless bikini waxing!
Also available at the benefit beauty counter is their famous brow bar, which offers eyebrow and facial waxing as well as tinting. And believe me, these girls know their stuff and will have you waltzing around in the most perfectly shaped, NATURAL looking brows.
The benebabes demonstrating some of the products on offer, such as the air patrol BB/priming eye cream, the 'They're real, push up liner' and the 'They're real beyond' mascara in BLUE!
We then visited Urban decay, the home of my holy grail, the naked palette. And apparently I'm not their only fan, Kim K . . . yes the one and only lady of fleekness, loves the brand so much that she wore their products in her wedding day, namely the naked skin foundation.
We then moved on to the Clinique counter, where the other bloggers and I were schooled on skincare. A lesson I was much in need of! The ladies were so highly informed and more then happy to give advice for our skin types. So, if you're like me, and in desperate need of a reliable skin care routine then don't hesitate to call in for a consultation, these friendly ladies will hook you up.
And can I just say, cliniques packaging!? I die!
Benefit, Urban decay and Clinique are just a few of the brands on offer at the Debenhams beauty hall, others include MAC, Dior, Clarins, Estee Lauder, chanel and Yves saint laurent to name a few. It's beauty heaven ladies! So, don't hesitate to pop in store for advice, a treatment or just a good old nosey! You won't regret it . . . although your bank balance might!
