You know how some girls have a thing for shoes, some have a thing for handbags - well I have a thing for makeup....specifically MAC Cosmetics.
MAC Cosmetics has a concession store in Brown Thomas on Grafton Street and it is one of my favourite places in Dublin. :)
I often pop in on my way home from work (It is not good for the bank balance to walk home via Grafton Street on a daily basis!) to play with the products on the display stands or just to browse. The phrase "child in a candy store" comes to mind.
The staff are very friendly and helpful and they are not always after the hard sell, but actually seem interested in the products they are selling. Most importantly - they are all trained makeup artists and know what they are talking about. The product range is unbelievable and the quality is incredible. (I love the product names - a personal favourite is Love Nectar lipgloss)
MAC also offer makeup application services - costing €45 for 1 hour, redeemable against products. I have had my makeup done here on a few occasions - I had professional photos taken on each occasion and I am delighted with how they turned out. The makeup artists didn't force their opinions on me but offered advice on what was most suitable for my colouring. (I also left with a customised face chart - detailing all of the products used.)
WARNING: You may like everything in the shop - herein lies the problem. :)
