On Sept. 15, residents throughout the Fall River area will get to test out the line at a special event the store is putting on. Running from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., the cosmetic departments three full-time and one part-time employee will be on hand to show and give customers who call and book their half hour appointment in advance a Clinique makeover.

“We’ll do a skincare consultation prior to the makeover, so they know what type of skincare products from Clinique are good for them as well,” said Ashley Card, cosmetic department manager. “They can call ahead of time and book their appointment as soon as possible as space is limited.”

Card said Clinque arrived at the store in late last year – with just the skincare products being sold there. But now, they have the makeup line in store as well.

“Since we’ve gotten it in we’ve had a lot of customers come in that we never had in before because it’s Clinique,” she said. “Every day it’s getting bigger and bigger. We want people to know that it is here, not the whole selection, but the top sellers we have.”

The store does have other makeup lines available for sale and on display. Among those is the Dr Roebuck’s, NudeByNature, PÜR, stila, Lise Watier and Jouviance, amongst other cosmetic lines.

A lot of the skincare issues people would have are addressed in the Clinique line, said Card.

“It’s specifically fragrance free so it’s good for a lot of people,” she said. “When in doubt, you can choose Clinique and feel very confident in your choice.”

Card spoke about the honour of being chosen such a well-known brand to sell it’s product. Usually Clinique is only available in the Shoppers outlets that have boutique stores.

“People know them and I hardly have to say anything to them,” she said. “People see that it’s here, and anything else I say about it is just a cherry on top.

“The brand really sells itself, but with a strong sales team like we have here behind it, we can do wonderful things together. To be chosen is really wonderful.”

To find out more about the Clinique line, come on out to the special event on Sept. 15 at Shoppers Drug Mart in Fall River. It is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
