I am going to try to refrain from turning into a total fangirl, but a few weeks ago I got an email from Rose. I have been following her blog for so long and I was also was obsessed with the Youtube videos that she made when working for Illamasqua. She is now working as the personal beauty shopper in Selfridges Birmingham. We've chatted on Twitter for a while and when Rose found out I was Midlands based, she invited me in store for the personal shopping experience. As soon as I saw the email, I jumped at the chance and of course took along one of my blogging besties Sarah.
With an incredible amount of excitement and anticipation, Sarah and I headed to Selfridges (my place of worship). We met Rose at the Illamasqua counter and instantly felt at ease. She is one of the people I've met through blogging. She is hilarious, down to earth and oh my god does she know her stuff! We were laughing the whole way round the beauty hall, it honestly just felt like shopping with a friend. You might think that she would try to get you to buy as much as possible, but she truly puts no pressure on you at all. We went from counter to counter for hours, Rose pointed out her favourites from each brand and we also gave her a few recommendations. We are bloggers after all! I made a 'few' naughty purchases, trust me I didn't need any encouraging either. My favourite purchase of the day is without a doubt the Tom Ford quad in Cocoa Mirage. It's absolute perfection. We also had a sniff sesh with the new Tom Ford scents, what a dream! I am so in love with the renovated beauty hall, there is so much to choose from which can get a bit dangerous for the old bank balance. It's nice to see brands that you cant get at your local stores such as RMK, Shu Uemura and Charlotte Tilbury.
I highly recommend going to see Rose whether you're a blogger or just a general beauty lover. You can contact her on email@example.com or 07984 807 878. The service is £30, which is fully redeemable on anything bought on the day. It is also available with Armand Beasley in Selfridges Manchester Exchange Square.
