Unless you have been living under a rock, you will know that Fenty Beauty was launched in Boots here in the UK and to celebrate the launch, I was kindly invited down to my local Boots at Intu Lakeside to see the collection and test out the products.
The Boots at Intu Lakeside has recently had a makeover so as well as seeing the Fenty collection, we were also there to see the new store layout; which can I say was amazing.
We were shown around the store by the loveliest lady called Dee who took us to literally every counter so we could see what product they had and test the out. It was great because Boots have recently launched some new brands in store including Becca and It Cosmetics so it was a fab way to try out some new products that I hadn’t seen before.
After seeing all of the other brands, it was then tine to drool over Fenty which j was so excited for. They showed us some of the newer pieces as well as the much loved classics and honestly I was blown away with the amount of shades of foundation there was, literally something for every skin tone and type.
I must admit I was a bit reluctant about trying the Fenty foundation as it is matte and I had quite dry skin so I always assumed it would just cake itself on and stick to all the dry patches. I was kindly colour matched by one of the girls who then proceeded to give me a full make over with all of the Fenty line which was so generous and kind. I am still wearing it now as I am writing this and it feels amazing. It’s been about 4 hours and it doesn’t feel cakey or heavy at all which is definitely what I thought it would do. The colour matches my skin tone perfectly and completely cancels out my pink undertones.
As we we’re leaving we were also gifted with a lovely goody bag full of products from the brands that are stocked in Boots and honestly I am blown away by the generosity of it and I can’t wait to get stuck in to some of the products.
Thank you Boots and Intu Lakeside for having me and showing me around the new store. It’s stunning and you made me feel so special and welcome.
