Carnaby Street has always had a reputation for being one of London’s most happening roads, and it is now also a viable beauty destination, thanks to the brilliant Benefit Boutique.
I popped in the other day for a Vita Liberata spray tan and to have a look around.
This two-floor, one-stop beauty shop offers all the products in the Benefit range (of course) along with a range of services including make-up lessons, shampoo and blow-dry, waxing, lashes and manicures.
The prices are really reasonable, for example a set of permanent individual lashes costs £80, a Vinylux shape and paint mani will set you back £14.50, and a make-up lesson is £30 (redeemable against products or appointment).
Downstairs you can have a thoroughly girlie time being glammed up, accompanied by your girlfriends and a glass of bubbly to help get the party started – they treat you well at the Benefit Boutique!
My Vita Liberata ‘Original’ spray tan (£25 – choose between Original or Darker depending on how brown you want to be) was performed by the lovely Lauren who was very thorough, making sure any dry bits were well moisturised first and giving me time afterwards to make sure I was fine to get dressed.
And the result? A fabulously flawless, golden glow that will see me through a week of work events and parties.
Highly recommended for a glamour fix and of course to stock up on all your fave Benefit beauty goodies.
Benefit Boutique can be found at 10 Carnaby Street, London W1F 9PF. Tel: 020 3597 5886.
