So how many of you managed to hot-foot it down to Selfridges in London to take advantage of the pop-up shop I wrote about a few days ago?  I just knew I wouldn’t be able to keep away, and sure enough, I was there two days of out the five.

The buzz was amazing, and top experts, including make-up artist Emma Day, New York celebrity hairdresser James Corbett and hairdresser to red-carpet stars, Tara Smith were all on hand to impart some of their in-depth hands-on knowledge, while the the Cult Beauty girls kept us all going with glasses of Prosecco and darling little cupcakes that were just irresistible!

Although I knew there was going to be a little goodie bag of samples courtesy of Cult, I couldn’t resist buying all sorts of things, including the Jade Facial Double Roller, some RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek pots, the Botanical Buffing Beads by Peter Thomas Roth and some Tara Smith goodies, including a hair glosser that I think is going to change my life!

The website really is a treasure trove of beauty finds that yields more each time you look through it.  Think Immupure, a brand that harnesses the power of colostrum to deliver radiant, younger looking skin.  Belmacz, a range of lipglosses and eye shadows infused with 24 carat gold leaf for a grown-up shimmer.  The glorious range of Ultra Foundation from Face Atelier with a shade to match almost every skintone.  And of course SKIN.NY, which you KNOW I love, if you’ve read my previous post.  And there’s so much more – it truly is a beauty lover’s delight!  Dangerous, bank-balance wise, yet so addictive and totally necessary!

If you missed going down to the pop-up store, then make sure you trawl through the website for some truly innovative and cult beauty products you won’t be able to live without.

    Hey Passionista,
    Thanks for this – Im so gutted I missed the pop up shop! Im dying to try some RMS beauty and I would have loved to see the products rather than just buying them online on cult, cos its so hard to get the right shades for asian skin. I was wondering which colours you would recommend from the things you have tried, I currently have pale yellow toned indian skin (no sun for the whole of winter!) so was thinking of trying uncoverup 22, the medium one, the eye shadow – seduce, but really lost when it comes to lip2cheek – any thoughts very much appreciated!! x (

    @ Gold Eye Serum – yes, they have a great range, expertly curated! Rather the NET-A-PORTER of the beauty world!

    it’s important to arrange the stuffs so that people and other customers will also be attractive and feel comfortable to the kind of environment they are seeing.
