I really can't understand why some brands or companies would insist on inviting bloggers to an event just to ignore them completely when they get there! Really?! I know there is probably a blogger quota to be filled and I should be 'grateful' that I even got invited to come down to the newly launched Beauty Mart at Harvey Nichols. However honestly when I make an hour and a half journey in 25 degrees heat, just to walk around a concession, not having a clue about its concept and not get talked to by anyone except a sales assistant who I had to go up to as I wanted to purchase something I found.
So while I would love to tell you a lot of things behind the Beauty Mart Concept and why it is such a great idea and maybe even what inspired the new concession. . . I can't . . . so you might want to look to google because I can't write about something I know nothing about, only what I saw.
What I did love about the Beauty Mart is how customers are encouraged to try and play with the different products so it's a lot more comfortable and inviting that going swatch heavy at your local drugstore or counter, plus I really do think that you can get products cheaper there than on the high street as I picked up the Revlon chubby pencil for £6 and Superdrug are selling the same pencil for £7.99 so yaaaaay.
They do still have a few chinks to work out with their till system so if you go down you might have to wait a little longer to pay than normal but I do think that it is really worth checking out, if only for a sneaky discount.
