I am not a morning person, but I sprang out of my bed bright and early to preview the new CHANEL All Access Beauty Event at Holt Renfrew earlier this week. Located on the Concourse Level of the Bloor Street flagship, the CHANEL space is as chic as it gets. Don’t call it a pop-up shop, but it certainly feels like one!
Running until April 10th, this is definitely one of those “RUN, DON’T WALK” events. Not only can you choose from a selection of complimentary services* (Makeup Master Class from a CHANEL pro, anyone?), but there’s a “create-your-own-gif” photobooth, complete with cool props like the lipstick piano and drum set. And if that’s not enough excitement for you, cocktails will be served every Thursday from 5pm-7pm. Magnifique!
The space itself is a visual gem – with rows upon rows of lipsticks and nail polish in various poppy shades, glam vanity mirrors, and other très CHANEL details. At the end of my visit, I walked out with the new Rouge Coco Stylo, which quickly became my new favourite lipstick/balm. It’s super moisturizing, glides on for a smooth and creamy application with a superb colour pay-off – a must-have summer lipstick.
CHANEL All Access Beauty event at Holt Renfrew on Bloor Street will be held until April 10th, so make sure to stop by and find your own perfect lipstick and nail colour, or simply pretend to be in a CHANEL band. You know you want to!
