I recently traveled to England for work, and, of course, managed to get in a bit of shopping while I was there. Two make-up brands that are difficult to get in Canada are Burberry and Tom Ford. I had a chance to go to the flagship Burberry store on Regent Street in London. It was stunning. The building was originally a church, then a movie theatre, and is now a 4-story Burberry store.
The sales assistants were so nice and helpful. I was handed a complimentary glass of hot cider as soon as I walked in. I picked up a lipstick and an eyeshadow. The total was 45.00 pounds.
I am in love with both! They both have the Burberry tartan pattern and luxurious packaging. The lipstick is lovely, very moisturizing, and long-wearing and I love the colour. The eyeshadow in almond is a very wearable, medium matte brown. Its a soft, buttery type of shadow.
I also went into the House of Fraser store on Oxford Street and a very sweet and friendly Tom Ford sales assistant helped me pick out a lipstick for 36.00 pounds.
There were so many pretty colours, but eventually I decided on Spanish Pink.
