New Year. New M&S.

Today MadeUp popped into the M&S press launch and boy was it was a feast for the eyes. There were some amazing new products on show from Valentine’s gifts to Easter treats, Mother’s Day pressies and clothes galore.

M&S have recently revamped their beauty section including new brands into their range as well as their own collections. With dedicated staff now on the beauty counters, they’re aiming to provide a better service to customers as well as makeup advice. You can now try new makeup and nail looks via fancy computer software in store or if you’re feeling a little shy you can do it at home and upload a pic to the M&S website. Or you could just do it the old fashioned way and try it out on your face! The choice is yours….

In other news, they have an amazing new lingerie range, celebration cakes made to order and Percy Pig Easter eggs. Basically they’ve got it covered. For such a big department store, their new look products and brand new ranges have a real boutique like feel to them with their products almost feeling bespoke. You know those people who are difficult to buy presents for? It’s all here – just make sure you pick me up a giant walnut whip. That’s an order.

Over and out.

Fresh is Best

When you’re in a hot country (like Thailand – yes I’m still here and I promise I’m not showing off ;)) and feeling clammy, these towelettes are drenched in cologne and are a great way to freshen up. They smell divine and are old school brand with bags of history. What a way to bring a little touch of class to your travelling or just to have nestled in your handbag for an emergency.

Time for some Christmas shopping?

Then head to Liberty of London, it’s my favourite department store. I really love their beauty section as it’s less manic than Selfridges and a much more enjoyable shopping experience. Their fragrance section is beautiful and you’ll find lots of perfumes that you wouldn’t usually see on the high street. My current favourite is by Escentric Molecules ‘Escentric 01’, a couple of my friends have been wearing it for years and I thought it was about time I tried it out.

Buying fragrance for someone can be tricky but you’ll definitely find something in Liberty as it’s a relatively small department where you’re free to browse and spray to your hearts content! I’ve always found the staff very helpful too (which always helps). Happy shopping!

New favourite perfume, bought the 30ml refill for £27, perfect handbag size #perfume #liberty #InstaFrame
