My mum adores reminiscing about days of old when the Avon lady came a knockin’! Yup, that’s right the Avon lady used to come to your door, sit down with you, try makeup on, and let you purchase it right from her.
Granted, Avon and Mary Kat still kinda embrace this technique but it’s not as elaborate as it once was.
It got me thinking to myself, How would I feel about makeup delivers, to my front door…?
Imagine your favorite SA from Bobbi Brown, Guerlain, or MAC came to your door every other week or once a month to introduce you to all the latest and greatest from the line plus tried it on you and allowed you to make your purchases right on the spot.
Wanna Muse it?
I thought long and hard about this one and absolutely adore the idea. Considering I’m a pretty busy person and my schedule is packed sometimes it’s difficult to get to my fav counters so I end up purchasing online. Sometimes my purchases online stink because colors are off, product isn’t quite what I thought it was, etc….
I rather love the idea of my fav MA just showing up at my door to give me the good word on new products and collection and allowing me to purchase them from her directly.
This isn’t without it’s fault of course.
Ideally it would have to be an MA I know and trusted as if it was any old random MA chances are it would be like inviting an over zealous car sales man into your house. Someone who would push a ton of product you didn’t want or need and aggressively try to sell you everything and anything. That would take the idea of “makeup delivers” to a whole other not so pleasant level.
But if it was an MA that I loved to work with already who wasn’t pushy and who understood that no meant no, hells I’d be all over makeup delivers like white on rice.
Mind you I also decided this would work great for newer collections but sometimes heading to the counter or store can be way fun too!
How about you?
Do you like a counter/store experience?
Or would you be up for at home makeup purchases?
