I was recently invited down to check out The Junction, Antrim as part of their Connection Club Weekend. The Junction is an amazing shopping destination situated about 20 miles from Belfast with not only over 30 retailers but an amazing 10 screen Omniplex cinema. The Connection Club is a promotion that enables you to receive extra discounts, offers and exclusive events. Think of it as a VIP card that allows you to save a little money while you shop – allowing you to shop more! You can sign up for the Connection Club here and view what stores are available here.
Of course me being me, I quite literally ran straight to the beauty outlet as it has my name written all over it. I went in fully confident that I would walk around and have a nosy at all the amazing offers however, as soon as my foot stepped over the threshold I completely lost all ability to think and went from the front to the back up and down the aisles telling staff that ‘this is amazing’ and obsessively congratulating a girl called Mags who keeps the lipsticks looking so neat on doing such a good job. Mags, I am sorry.
View this quick video of me walking around the store and keep scrolling for a more in depth view of the offers available – perfect for dare I say the C word? Christmas.
Thank you so much to The Junction and Beauty Outlet who gifted me with a voucher! If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll see all the goodies I got!
As soon as you walk in there’s a fantastic beauty bar area with chairs and glorious light up mirrors surrounded by amazing offers. A great area to sit and try on makeup!
I first had a rummage around at the foundations and while there is a huge variety o products I did however notice that there are not full shade ranges. I was able to find my colours very easily and there is still a great range but you may have to sacrifice going a little lighter or darker if you cannot find your shade – but that’s okay, because they have bronzers. One of my favourite foundations, Rimmel Lasting Finish foundation is available there and you can see my first impression of this foundation on my YouTube here.
I think my favourite part about walking around this store had to have been the lipstick section. Not only was it just so satisfying to look at but the lipsticks were around the £1.99/£2.99 mark. I mean, my Starbucks order costs more than that. If you watched my Instagram stories then you’ll know that I got so overwhelmed by the lipstick aisle that I actually only left with two lipsticks and two lips liners. It is just so unlike me. I can’t wait to go back and buy more!
I felt like I was walking around Willy Wonka’s factory in this store, honestly. Just look at all those brushes and beauty blenders? I was in total heaven and all for a fraction of the price that you would pay in places like Boots and Superdrug. I love getting things like these as little presents, if you were starting to think of mini gifts for *whispers* Christmas then these are all perfect!
Again, on the gift train – whether it’s a gift for yourself of you are in need of a present for someone these are amazing and come in the cutest packaging. W7 were one of the main brands I seen in the beauty outlet and I have used some things from them before and they are actually pretty good, amazing for the price! How amazing is this brush set below?
In addition to makeup and accessories they also have a great range of skincare, bath and body and fragrances so there really is something for everyone! So looking forward to going back to the store and The Junction in general as all staff seem so friendly and The Junction is an amazing place to walk around.
