Last week, London Drugs had us soaring through the sky. Literally. And we loved it!
It was the drugstore giant’s highly-anticipated annual beauty event, and boy, did they pull out all the stops. After checking in at the Vancouver Harbour Heliport, beauty editors and bloggers were whisked away to the Richmond event venue via AugustaWestland Helicopters – so luxurious! Shortly after touching down and entering the London Aviation Center, we had a cocktail in one hand and the biggest LD shopping bag we’d ever seen in the other. It was definitely a beauty addict’s dream night.
Lining the perimeter of the enormous hangar were many of our favourite beauty brands, including Cargo, Essie, John Frieda, Revlon, and St. Tropez, to name only a very few. Revlon Canada Nail Expert Leanne Colley and Essie Canada Lead Nail Artist Rita Remark were on hand to beautify the digits of guests, and John Frieda’s Canadian Creative Consultant, Alain Larivée, was the curling iron master, creating gorgeous ‘dos on some lucky ladies.
Christmas had come early as we toted our oversized “stocking” around the venue. While we nibbled on delectable hors d’oeuvres and learnt about the latest and greatest beauty products soon to hit London Drugs’ shelves, Santa’s elves (aka: the amazing brand representatives) popped merchandise samples into our bags for us to try at home. Yes, we were grinning from ear to ear. It was truly an epic night.
