Discovering Beauty at John Lewis Kingston

John Lewis Beauty

That’s right, yet another post about John Lewis. What can I say? I love JL. Two weeks ago I dragged my bloggy friend Sam (far right) from And Then The Fun Began to John Lewis Kingston. I say dragged, but I mentioned that there was a Beauty Event at John Lewis, and Sam agreed to go before I finished my sentence. And whilst there, we saw the lovely Steph (in the middle) from Sisterhood (And All That). Beauty AND friends, is there anything better? Oh yes, there was Cava too!

John Lewis hold beauty evenings at their various stores a couple of times a year. You get to indulge in an evening of complimentary makeovers, skincare analysis, mini-manicures and mini-facials. And Cava. All for £5, which is redeemable against a purchase. And as all beauty products were 10% off on the night, it really was hard not to buy every indulgent item I sampled. I went to the last Beauty Event at John Lewis Kingston in March of this year (blogged about here). It is such a fab treat to get out and get pampered with gorgeous beauty and skin products.

This time, I got to chat to the lovely people at Clinique about my skincare needs. I was also given some products to try. I am getting to that age (*cough, cough* 39 *cough, cough) where I feel like my skin regime needs a bit of an overhaul. I then had my make-up done at Benefit. I had a bold eye and a light lip, which is the opposite of my day-to-day look. But it is fun to look a bit more glamorous than usual. Before the night finished, we went to the women’s wear section for a fashion show. Some of the staff at John Lewis Kingston showed off the fashion highlights of the new season.

Have you ever been to a John Lewis Beauty Event? When was the last time you had a make-up makeover? Are you in need of a new look?


I was invited to attend the Beauty Event, with a friend, for the purpose of this review. All views expressed are entirely my own.

  1. I went to the Beauty event on Thursday evening and it was very poor. There was no difference beween customers who had bought a £5 ticket and other customers. The Benefit staff didn’t know it was happening. Other counters only parted with their Cava when asked. There were no demonstrations going on.
    All the other JL Kingston events I have been to have been excellent with lots going on.
