Charlotte Tilbury launches at Selfridges
There hasn’t been a launch more hyped since Tom Ford announced he was marking his return with a beauty collection, and rightly so. Charlotte Tilbury, the make-up artist who has probably made stars up for more covers than any other-my favourites being Kate Moss in midnight on French Vogue, and the vintage Pop magazine covers- gave us a little taste of what was to come with her Rock & Kohl pop-up at Selfridges earlier this summer. The collection which launched at Selfridges yesterday, to global tears of joy, includes her magic cream (much loved by actress, model and editor friends), eyeliners, lipsticks and concealers in the prettiest of packaging. You can also shop my looks created by Charlotte. I have about 5 favourites but The Dolce Vita (above) is the most magical. I’ll let you know what I think when I can face the fight at Selfies!
Available at Selfridges.
Daniel Hersheson Pops-Up on Conduit St
The hairdresser to the stars Daniel Hersheson has long been helping those more modest of purse with his Blow-Dry Bars, in which no appointment is necessary and you can have a ready-made do for the weekend. The bars launched in 2008 at Topshop, and he has since opened 3 more across the city.
Despite being home to the likes of Wah Nails, at Topshop you do occasionally find yourself being spied on by nosy shoppers (I know this because I am said nosy shopper).
With the launch of the Conduit St pop-up store, an experimental space plastered with clippings to keep you entertained, you can get your hair did in peace and in rather swanky surroundings too.
Daniel Hersheson Pop-Up at Conduit launches today.
Daniel Hersheson, 4th Floor, 40 Conduit Street, London, W1S 2YQ.
Benefit Opens on Carnaby
Benefit have opened many a store in their time, handily in neighbourhoods people actually frequent, such as: Angel, Spitafields and all over the globe. Every successful mega brand needs a flagship.
Like the High-st greats Topshop, H&M and Zara, it seems there’s still nowhere better or more inclusive than Oxford St. For Benefit, however, that would be a tad predictable so they’ve opted for its chicer neighbour, Carnaby; home to the swinging sixties, and in the good company of brands such as Illamasqua, &Other Stories and American Apparel.
I’ve been nosing around the constructions site (I seem to find myself doing that a lot lately; what with Isabel Marant and Celine set to open in Mayfair this September.) trying to sniff out a date. Alas I must sniff no longer, Benefit Carnaby is set to open its doors on September 12th revealing its new Blow dry bar and Champagne bar, as well as continuing to offer its popular brow services, waxing and tanning. Champs whilst you get your brows done, what more could a girl want.
