Debenhams Foyleside Beauty Night!

A Beauty Haul in a Beauty Hall!
Hi!
The beautiful view of the Foyle & the Peace Bridge from our meeting spot!
 Last night I had the pleasure of attending a local shopping favourite of mine, Debenhams - Foyleside in Derry City for the relaunch of their new and improved (and sparkly and amazing, let's be real here,) Beauty Hall.  And let me tell you, it was fantastic!

Cupcakes & The Craic
For years +Debenhams , and particularly their beauty floor has been the go-to place for all my cosmetic needs and wants. Recently, with the much anticipated arrival of +MAC Cosmetics (arrived July 17th!) the people at Debenhams-Derry decided that a complete overhaul was called for, and the makeup makeover took place. 

The new Beauty Hall features high end cosmetic brands such as Chanel, Urban Decay, Bare Minerals, Dior, Estee Lauder, Clarins, Lancome and Benefit, and of course, now, MAC!

Sparkle and shimmer from UD's counter + some goodies from the amazing gift bags given!

The night started off with the #BeautyBloggers being greeted by the lovely PR guru Laura and a select few of the fantastic staff from the store, where they provided us with bubbly, cupcakes, and the buzz about what we'd see on the tour of the over hauled beauty hall. It was also brilliant to get a little catch up with so many of the #FABB ladies from Belfast / around NI that I rarely get the chance to see since all our events are far flung for me where as this was, finally, local! So, getting to see them and to meet some new faces that are blogging out of Derry and the North West is just great!


UD blush heaven!
Swoot Swoo +MAC Cosmetics new makeup vanities 

 We were then walked through the various counters that are available in Debs-Derry and some of the new services they provide. You know, on top of being The Makeup Mecca of the North West now (as dubbed by me, but it seriously is I swear!). 



How cute is this pick N mix from +Clarins ???


At +Benefit Cosmetics we were talked through their newest service in-store waxing! They have a pretty little set up of a private room (Benefit-ed out to the max, you'll even have your own Bene-towels and robes!). This is a great service for anyone on the go, you have a one stop shop - literally - for any necessary waxing, a quick facial, and a professionally applied makeup application all without stepping outside! Here for this! Right?


The Benefit ladies on hand to show us all their new products! So lovely!


Wax on, Wax off!


Hello again!
 The staff on the night could not have been more welcoming or helpful, or generous come to that as we all received multiple gift bags with an array of goodies from the floor. Ranging from Gucci perfumes, Benefit makeup and skincare (the new eye-primer BB cream that I'll be sure to review on here soon!) Urban Decay eye-shadows and blush samples, Clairns skincare perfect plane sized too! Some sweet Origins skin mask and serum samples and a very sleek +Dolce & Gabbana wallet - perfect as a makeup pouch or as I plan to use it, as a wallet for my travel documents and passport when I fly to New York in a few weeks! All to name a few! It was like Christmas, as it was teamed up with a generous £50 voucher for the Beauty Hall - that I didn't have time to spend on the night but as it's local I'll be sure to be back - maybe close to my birthday next month to treat myself!

Such an education over at +Clinique UK !




Big +Origins fan so sampling their newest range is exciting! Love the pale pink too, very sweet.

Derry already has so much to offer in terms of culture and history that it's wonderful to see from a local perspective, the investments continuing to be made by big companies such as the new addition of MAC and the expansion of already successful businesses such as +Debenhams that employ and empower so many.  












+Benefit Cosmetics UK & Ireland goodies <3

We need a bigger backdrop! :o


So if you haven't already, you definitely should pop in, see the fab staff and treat yourself! There is literally so much to choose from, if you could have spent a day in there before, you could spend a week in there now! 


Thanks for reading!
