Harrods’ new Beauty Hall, currently being transformed into a 90,000sq ft sensory paradise over five floors of the store, is set to be one of the largest and most impressive beauty destinations in the world. Its metamorphosis will be complete early next year, but the first section has just opened, showcasing 26 exclusive and enticing brands, collections and products.

Customers will be able to test products in person or virtually via the store’s new Magic Mirrors, which digitally map facial features, generating a visual match of their skintone and hair colour while “applying” lipstick, foundation, blusher and mascara for multiple different looks, with or without a Harrods make-up artist. Fueguia 1833, an artisan laboratory that creates limited edition fragrances (from £141 for 50ml EDP) from exotic botanicals, and La Bouche Rouge’s refillable French lipsticks (from £32), will both be available in the UK for the first time. The relaunched Gucci make-up range will also kick off at the store, with its three lipstick collections – satin-finish Rouge à Lèvres Satin, sheer-finish Rouge à Lèvres Voile and translucent Baume à Lèvres (all £34) – making up just a few of the almost 97,000 lipsticks displayed on-counter.

Gucci’s newly relaunched make-up range, including this René Pink Baume à Lèvres, £34, will have its first outing at the store. Rodial’s sultry new PurpleHaze eye palette, £65, is another exclusive
