Designed in Scotland and made in NYC Sarah Hill makeup encompasses a playful off duty aesthetic and offers everything from face primer & foundation through to insanely moisturising lipsticks and high pigment glitters. Oh and did I mention it’s completely CRUELTY FREE?! The only thing that’s not vegan is the lip pencil & lipstick, but they are working on that too.So exciting to have a brand conceived in Glasgow to be completely against animal testing. The Sarah Hill makeup motto? Tested on Grannies. Brilliant.
As if the make up wasn’t enough Sarah created a show room environment for her store, it’s so beautiful I pretty much want to live in it! Covered in ivy & whitewashed floors it creates the perfect backdrop to display the makeup, it makes the store so inviting and is a very calm shopping experience. It also helps that the staff will never push you into buying anything, want to try some glitter but aren’t sure if you dare buy it? Go for it! Need a lippy update but don’t know which colour suits? Have a look then try them all! The store includes a little play area where you can try before you buy and get some help if you have any questions. It also has the perfect light for selfies, so if you end up getting glammed up to the nines, or just popping on a bright lip or coloured eyeshadow it’s the perfect instagram opportunity.
This is the most laid back shopping experience you can have outside of your house…and I’m sure Sarah wouldn’t mind if you turned up in your PJ’s with a bottle of wine, just bring enough to share!
