On Tuesday night I had a preview of Marks & Spencer’s new beauty collections for this year’s spring/summer at the newly reopened Cafe Royal in London. It has to be said the restored and transformed grade 1 listing building is breathtaking.
I was thrilled to see so many recognised brands under their wing – Tara Smith, REN, H20 Spa, Glam Glow as well as their signature collections from Autograph.
Make-up is pink and warm peachy tones with bronze-gold shimmers and one product that caught everyone’s attention was Autograph’s eyeshadow palette, which looks very similar to the Naked palette but at more than half the price (£12).
M&S’s Beauty Hall is wonderfully innovative and welcoming, and they have certainly raised the bar with handpicking some pretty lovely things and making them more accessible to a wider audience. It looks like I’ll have to make a stop at my nearest M&S Beauty Hall now…
Meanwhile I thought I’d include some snap shots from the evening with cookie decorating among the highlights.
What do you think of M&S’s Beauty Hall?
