my recreation of the ‘Love Thyself’ campaign.
For beauty lovers across the UK and beyond, the opening of the Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar was exciting news. I was lucky enough to be invited to the store in Liverpool on Saturday for a tour and a treatment. I hadn’t been to Liverpool before and I was impressed by how lovely the shopping experience was.
Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar is a new concept store which has 3 floors all dedicated to beauty. You can shop some amazing brands, including NARS, Shu Uemura, Laura Mercier and Jo Malone (to name just a few!) on the ground and first floors before heading up to the second floor for an array of treatments such as HD Brows, STRIP waxing and James Read at the Studio spray tans – all held in discreet treatment rooms. I was very impressed by the sound of the STRIP waxing (which you can read more about here) and I was even lucky enough to be treated to my first ever spray tan by Fake Bake in the James Read Studio.
You can’t go to Liverpool and not have a spray tan, right? I’m not really a tanned kinda girl but the girls in the treatment area are amazing, very welcoming and professional, and I left feeling really happy with my new bronzed self.
I can say, after a few days of wear and many compliments, that I’m really, really impressed with my Fake Bake spray tan, there’s been no streaks or patches and the colour is beautiful, not too subtle and not too overdone. The Studio by James Read is kitted out in all the latest professional equipment and the girls make you feel really comfortable, so whether it’s your first time or you’ve been going for months, you’ll feel like you belong.
After a drink in the Champagne Bar (yep, it’s as glam as it sounds) and a quick look around the offerings of the 1st floor, including a Nails Inc nail bar, BLINC lash extensions and even a BeautyMart section to shop all your favourite products, I had a go at recreating the ‘Love Thyself’ campaign from Harvey Nichols, which you can read about in more detail here. The campaign is great, I think it’s perfect for the store and it was really fun recreating it with the help of a mini-studio set up in the personal shopping area.
Lastly, I had a little shop around the store before I left. The shopping experience is great, it’s not over-crowded and everything is easy to find. I love the way the perfumes are laid out like a library, it looks gorgeous and much more welcoming than locked cabinets.
The store itself is beautiful, think lots of sparkles and lux decor.
Overall, I had an amazing day and it was lovely of Harvey Nichols to invite me. I’d absolutely recommend you check out the Beauty Bazaar, there’s something for everyone and a great way of finding new products and brands.
