Last Tuesday, a bunch of my beauty besties headed downtown to the Duane Reade at 40 Wall Street for a very welcome Brit invasion — Boots Beauty!
While Boots has been in the UK since 1849, this would be the first time Duane Reade and Walgreens stores throughout the Metro New York area would have the service and brand experience from Boots Beauty Advisors.
While mingling with friends is always fun, my favorite part of the night was finding the perfect foundation shade. It took me a very long time to find the foundation shade I currently wear. And it took Boots No7 scientists four years to create a range of skin-true foundation shades exclusive to No7. Within minutes I was matched to my perfect foundation shade via their Match Made Service.
Wondering if Boots products should be in your cosmetics case? Not only are they hypo-allergenic and suitable for sensitive skin, they supply products to the British Royal Household. If it’s fit for royalty, you can definitely give it a try.
I love that the No7 skincare ranges from anti-aging Protect and Perfect to Restore and Renew for mature skin. Boots No7 certainly has you covered. And its cult following is well deserved.
After playing with makeup and hearing from Gordon Farquhar, Managing Director of Boots Retail USA, we all headed over to hear Marina and the Diamonds perform. Marina grew up near a Boots — much like most New Yorkers grew up near a Duane Reade! — and was thrilled to sing at their event elevating drugstore beauty.
