It’s always SUCH an exciting day when an accredited company opens up to the world of eCommerce. I don’t know if this is just exciting for me because I spent 4 years of my life within the eCommerce industry or if everyone shares my excitement for convenient shopping? The main thing is for any beauty lover we lack variety of beauty eCommerce sites so it’s a pleasure to welcome Foschini For Beauty an extension of TFG and their many successful ventures such as @home, sportscene and so many more amazing stores!
The website has a huge selection of skin care products, fragrances, beauty tools and make-up most of which you’ll find in store at Foschini Beauty Stores. Brands to expect? Smashbox, Real Techniques, Clinique, Clarins, Estee Lauder and oh so many more, have a look for yourself!
The #FoschiniForBeauty team hosted us in the most incredible space that was full of plants and flowers that just made my heart so so happy! We got to take home our own flowers to create a flower crown as well as voucher to do a little shopping! I was super spoilt as I also won an additional voucher from the event so I gave one voucher to my mom and used the other on choosing products I’ve always wanted.
Oh to narrow it down and choose was so difficult, I had to use a process of elimination! The Foschini For Beauty website also has constant specials buy X get X free, if you sign up to their newsletter you’ll be notified on the current specials.
The special section almost got the best of me but I stuck to my guns and chose three items I’ve always wanted to try:
Clarins Blush Prodige in 06 – I was absolutely besotted by the layout of the blush, with some parts being matte and some having a shimmer. There are a few shades in the range but I decided to go with the browny one. This Clarins blush is very similar to a bronzer on my skin tone – score! I basically got a two in one. I definitely want to try the peachy shade now.
Clinique Pop Lipstick in Melon Pop – this was such a toss up between Nude Pop but I am so happy I chose this gorgeous peachy shade. Its such a versatile shade and has been in my handbag ever since it arrived. Even though its more of a glossy finish, its super pigmented.
Instant Light Radiance Boosting Base in 02 – I am so happy I picked this beauty up, its essentially a primer with radiance boosting properties. What makes this different to any other primer I have is that it has a slight colour to it. It basically evens out the complexion slightly and what I really love about it is it’s perfect for no make up days!
I placed my order after 9pm got the confirmation and headed off to sleep. Now I often buy things online and honestly try to forget about them because delivery is usually done in a few days so I always try and manage my expectations not to get too excited BUT I didn’t for one minute expect my parcel to be delivered the N E X T day and it was! I was notified via email that my parcel was out for delivery and as soon as I got home there it was. My products were neatly bubble wrapped to avoid any breakages and all boxes were in perfect condition (if you’re one of those people that keep the boxes!).
I thought it would be nice to give a mini review on each of the products that I bought as I have been using them all and been loving all three!
All in all I am so excited for the launch of the Foschini For Beauty online store, its been a long time coming and I can’t wait to see what brands they add to the mix in the next few months. Here’s to no more shop hoping till you find the beauty product you’re looking for! Yay!
