Red Square have gone Digital

Hiya Poutlings <33

RED SQUARE

Red Square – famously part of the Edgars group has finally launched an online store where you can get some of your favourite beauty and perfume brands online! They have also stated that they will offer a “free” sampling programme, simply put that when you order online you can choose three sample items to try, at no additional cost. It sounds very Rubybox-esque but it sounds good to me.

Red Square have also taken into account that we, beauty bloggers as a whole are quite loud and proud about our purchases and that we want to share our product experience and knowledge with people on the web, be it via social media, blogging or review sites, and have catered for this on their website providing the opportunity for the consumers to post comments, make recommendations or even give advice about the products on offer in order to strive for consumers to make more informed choices….

The goodies you buy from Red Square can also be gift wrapped with a personalised message on the card…. this sounds like it could be an absolute save for last minute birthday or anniversary presents for the men out there 😉 Look out for perfume-presents, ladies!

Orders over R350 have free delivery, any order under that amount would be subject to an additional R45 on your purchase price. Payments can be made via credit card, or any Edgars or Jet account. HELLO 6 MONTHS INTEREST FREE CREDIT.

I’m really loving the fact that they have finally launched in the correct direction, local South African online stores will most definitely soar over the next few years but I am suprised that they did not think to do this previously…. The website on a whole, is a bit boring for a company with such an established brand however it is still early days and they may actually liven it up a bit.

It however amazing that we can now shop these amazing brands online without having to pay for parking. The brands on offer include (the links are to our previous articles on the brand/person): Antonio Banderas, Avril Lavigne, Azzaro, Beautique, Britney Spears, Burberry, Bvlgari, Cacharel, Calvin Klein, Carolina Herrera, Chloe, Christina Aguilera, CK One Color, Clarins, Davidoff, Diesel, Dolce & Gabana, Dunhill, Elie Saab, Elizabeth Arden, Elizabeth Taylor, Escada, Estee Lauder, Ferrari, Filorga, Giorgio Armani, Gosh, Gucci, Hugo Boss, I Love…, Imedeen, Issey Miyake, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jennifer Lopez, Jimmy Choo, Joop!, Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, L’Oreal Paris, Lacoste, Lancome, Lanvin, Madonna, Marc Jacobs, Montblanc, Nails Inc., Narciso Rodriguez, Nine West, Paco Rabanne, Placecol, Puma, Quorum, Ralph Lauren, Revlon, Rihanna, Roberto Cavalli, Shakira, Swarovski, Taylor Swift, Ted Lapidus, Thierry Mugler, Trind, Usher, Valentino, Van Cleef & Arpels, Versace, Viktor & Rolf and last but not least Yves Saint Laurent.

I’ll be sure to let you know about any of my purchase experiences from Red Square and how the service is versus the service in the actual shops! Last time I visited Johannesburg, I had superb service at the Sandton City store!

Are you going to check out Red Square online?

Be sure to let me know your experiences, if they are before mine!

Monday Product Review ~ Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline

Well hello there pretty pouters

 

So, Christmas is draqing closer, and some of us (or maybe just me) is at a loss because we ( i) have no idea what to buy my dearest and nearest for christmas. So here’s another review of an absolutely marvelous fragrance from Bvlgari.

Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline

 

Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline sells for about R895 for 65ml

 

Created in 2005 the fragrance is inspired by the perfection of crystal. It is delicate and gentle and it’s my new favorite fragrance. This sparkling fragrance captures the essence of frosted flowers. At first you get the notes of bamboo, it has a very specific fresh aroma, similar to apple. The middle notes of lotus and bottom notes are filled with woodsy notes like oak.

 

I seriously recommend this for the girls that like something crisp and fresh, and the bottle is darn pretty too.

 

I have one in the “Jewel Charms” packaging, it comes with  a lovely silk bag and is great to pop in you handbag as it’s not too bulky. 

 

All the Bvlgari fragrances are available in these cute little bottles and look oh so pretty!

 

 

Have a pouty perfect day!

Well, Hello there and a quick product review

Hello Pouters

Thank you for the wonderful writers for allowing me to be part of their world. Formalities aside…

I have recently joined the RubyBox craze that is going around and boy oh boy, so far it has only been fun. For a mere R100 rands per month you get a monthly box filled with trial size goodies (sometimes even a full size goodie) delivered straight to your door.

So, after getting 2 Ruby Boxes so far, it is now my duty as a “pouty product tester” to give you reviews on these products. Considering it’s almost the festive season and half of us are wondering what to get friends and family, I do hope these reviews will help you too.

So, first up in the fireline was…

Bvlgari Pour Femme Bvlgari Pour Femme

This fragrance is part of the “Essence of a Jeweler” range and goes for between R920 – R960 for 50ml

This classic feminine fragrance was created in 1994 and re-launched in 2006. Pour Femme has a delicate floral bouquet containing bergamot, violet and orange blossom. The middle notes come through with a bit of jasmine and rose.

If you are more sophisticated lady this fragrance would be just right for you. However, I do like fragrances that last the entire day and I have found that this fragrance disappears during the day. Dare I say, I think this would be more suited for the more mature market. So go out and get your mum a bottle for Christmas, she’d love it.

Have a pouty perfect day!
