If you've visited Carnaby Street recently, you'd have noticed that the Make Up Store is now open for business. I popped in last week, as a thunderstorm cascaded over my head for shelter and had a chance to take a look around. Situated just a few metres from the MAC Pro Store, the Make Up Store is a welcome addition for beauty addicts and I fully expect to see this store packed on a Saturday afternoon.
Filled with foundations, eyehadows, pigments and much, much more, the Make Up Store has a wide variety of shades and finishes to suite everybody's tastes, complete with tools a plenty to stock up the kits and collections of make up users on all levels.
The store is designed as self service with all products easily accessible to customers to pick up and take to the till themselves (I bet they'll have a security guard present to deter shoplifters by the end of the month though!).
Many of you may already be aware that there's a branch in Westfield and there are also a number of international stores too.
Prices are mid-range and comparable to those of M.A.C and I was particularly taken by the scented candles which smelt utterly divine! I'd already swatched myself silly in M.A.C beforehand so I didn't really swatch many of their products as I was all swatched out but those I did swatch had nice pigment pay-off. I'll certainly be going back to have another look soon.
I took a few (crap) pictures while I was there to share with you:
