This is not just any beauty hall…

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 24 - 2012

… you know what’s coming don’t you?

This is an M&S beauty hall.

I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist.

The press release is indepth but the highlights of the new M&S Beauty Halls (which will roll-out to 100 of their nationwide stores by Summer 2013) include:

~ a range of fragrances created for M&S exclusively by Lyn Harris (of Miller Harris fame)
~ a “virtual makeover” counter to experience different looks with a single photo
~ trained and impartial beauty advisers, with a “no-hard sell” ethos
~ External brands you can’t access easily on the high-street, including: Filorga, Skyn Iceland, and Comptoir Sud Pacifique
~ New/repackaged/reformulated M&S beauty ranges including: Hello Kitty (teen cosmetics), Pure Skincare (natural, eco line), and Formula (targeted skincare)

I just keep thinking how much fun must it be to go to work and choose which brands to stock? Gizza job!

 The new M&S beauty hall is currently debuting at the High Street Kensington branch with all products and new brands available to purchase online at

    So that’s what they were working on… I was in the M&S on Kensington High Street last weekend and there were no beauty products available at all, but there was a bit cordonned off, so it must have been this in the making.

    They will be stocking Leighton Denny too, which is fab as there is no stockist near me!

    That looks so nice and spacious. Too bad M&S doesn’t have any stores in the U.S. :(.

    ROTFLOL- gizza job, indeed! I can’t wait for it to come to the Stratford Westfield 😀

    I’m really excited about this! It looks super cool, hope my M&S will have one.

    Nooooo! This makes me want to move back to London! My regular M&S was the one on Oxford Street. I miss M&S!
