Superdrug Beauty Studio’s 1st Birthday

BEAUTYSTUDIOBeauty writer Em Gates joined in with Superdrug’s Beauty Studio’s first birthday celebrations. Here is what she got up to… 

If the allure of a free goody bag for being one of the first 50 people into the store doesn’t bother most people, that was probably the reason I was first in the queue for the Superdrug Beauty Studio 1st Birthday Party. Not feeling guilty at all for turning up 30 minutes early, I am now the proud owner of various samples of different Superdrug brands, and of course am thoroughly delighted with an evening well spent. Leaving the establishment with a set of ocean glitter Gel nails, eyebrows threaded and eyelashes tinted, it’s safe to say that the lovely ladies who work there are more than accomplished at their jobs. In fact they have done such a good job on my nails that I truly think I’ll be returning for a new set when needed.

BEAUTYSTUDIOTREATMENT1Instantly made to feel welcome by the assistants, guests were treated to glass of fizz, and as many indulgent cupcakes as we liked. Not to mention more nibbles were provided by popular Mexican restaurant Wahacas, so whether you had a sweet tooth, a savoury craving or just hankering for some bubbles, you were catered to at this birthday party. Displaying the usual brands such as Rimmel and Maybelline, the Beauty Studio enticed regulars in with offers of 10% off everything and triple points on top of the free services and catering. But the main point of interest for me were the brands I hadn’t heard of before; ‘The Balm NUDE’tude’ eye shadow palette covers all bases from smoky eye to simple contouring, including an angled brush to help create your enticing eye designs. Not only does this product look professional, but the assistant actually gave me a demonstration on how to use the gold and white powders to make my eyes look bigger and bolder, customer service I didn’t expect from the high street chain.

BEAUTYSTUDIOCAKESIf shopping for beauty products, The Beauty Studio is definitely the right direction in favour of other cosmetics stores, not to mention that this particular branch of Superdrug is an exclusive to Cardiff! The assistants are poised to give advice as they are also trained in a particular field of beauty themselves, meaning there was no awkwardness about asking for help on which nail colour to chose. Offering services for nails, lashes, eyebrows, hair styling and piercing without breaking the bank, The Beauty Studio has proved that it knows what it’s doing and it’s doing it well. Happy birthday The Beauty Studio by Superdrug, and I hope to celebrate many more with you!
