When Scandi retailer & Other Stories launched in the UK in 2013, it was the beauty section that caught my eye. In the past, the high-street fashion stores have always had pretty feeble beauty offerings, but & Other Stories was different. It had enlisted cult perfume brand Byredo’s founder Ben Gorham and world-renowned makeup artist Lisa Butler to consult on the fragrance, skincare and colour offering. Six years later (time flies, huh?), the beauty products are still brilliant on so many levels, from the design and price point to the product efficacy.
Next time you’re browsing the dresses, shoes or accessories (I mean, they’re all good), why not pop some beauty products in your virtual basket too? With free shipping over £120, a beauty buy could basically save you money, if you think about it.
If you’re not sure what to choose, let me guide you to the best nine beauty buys & Other Stories has to offer.
