Chanel's make-up boutique in Covent Garden (formely known as a pop-up) is officially here to stay. This is amazing news for Londoners as the only other one of its kind at the moment is in Red Square in Russia.
Over Mother's Day weekend, you can see this amazing flower cart outside the shop and mums will be treated to a free bouquet of gorgeous peonies with the purchase of every 100ml fragrance.
You can also have a personalised card (complete with embossed camelia) hand-written in calligraphy for your mum made up in store. This one was penned by a lady who wrote The Queen's Diamond Jubilee scroll! I know my mum will be thrilled by that nugget of information alone.
The boutique has also had a refurbishement: downstairs is now a proper nail bar, and you sit surrounded by giant vernis bottles in all the classic shades. Book in and the cost of the manicure (£30) is redemable against a product. The Starlet shade is the perfect pink for Spring, see below (released in April).
Best thing for last though: you can book the entire basement out for six friends for a Mademoiselle Make-Over. These last an hour-and-a-half and you can get expert make-up advice and manicures while enjoying champagne and macaroons!
Chanel is at Covent Garden Piazza. Go to popupstore.chanel.com for more information.
