Made You Blush opened their doors last week, on Tuesday April 10th! It's been so exciting to see our customers and the gals of Saint John go gaga over their beautiful pink and girly shop!
|Made You Blush Saint John - Pink Everywhere!|
We wanted to take the time to properly introduce our new neighbour to you, and what better way to do so than to have a chat with the owner of Made You Blush, Suzanne DeLong. We asked Suzanne to answer some questions about her business and new store....enjoy!
1. For anyone who hasn't heard of Made You Blush, how do you describe what your boutique is all about?
Made You Blush is all about feeling confident. If you look good, you feel good. We offer makeup applications and makeup lessons. Sit down mini tutorials for whatever product you were searching for that day. We offer over 40 different beauty lines and most are exclusive to Made You Blush (aka MYB). We carry the best in skin care, body care and cosmetics! We all have extensive knowledge about our products so we are able to recommend the right product for you!
2. What made you want to open up your own business?
I wanted to open my own business ever since I was little. I just had the drive to do it. I love a challenge and we both know that owning your own business is challenging :)
3. Why Saint John for your 3rd Made You Blush location? (Suzanne already has a boutique in her hometown of Woodstock and a store in downtown Fredericton!)
I LOVE SAINT JOHN! The people are wonderful! It was a breeze opening my 3rd location here! Everyone was so helpful!
4. What are your personal favourite 3 products that Made You Blush sells?
My fav 3 products are Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, LaLicious Body Scrubs and Face Atelier Foundation.
5. Do your personal favourite products differ from your customers? If so, what are some other popular favourites that Made You Blush sells?
Everyone has their favourite product from MYB. I'm glad it's all different because people will recommend products that you maybe haven't even tried yet. So it keeps people coming back. The most popular product in MYB history would be the LaLicious Body Scrubs. Hands down the best scrub you'll ever put on your body!
6. Does Made You Blush offer makeup classes or lessons?
Yes we do....we offer makeup applications and makeup lessons. Our lessons are very one-on-one and catered to the client.....so every lesson is different.
7. Are you having a Grand Opening party? If so, what are the details?
Made You Blush SJ is planning on having a grand opening the end of May. We are planning a huge celebration so make sure you are there! Stay tuned for details!
8. What's something that makes Made You Blush unique that people may not know about?
In addition to our 3 retail locations, we also have an online store which we ship all over Canada and the US. www.madeyoublush.com
9. With your new Saint John store now open, who are the fresh faces we can expect to see at your boutique?
Jessica, Morgan, Chelsea, Rachel and I!
10. Lastly, being in the shoe business, we can't help but ask....does Made You Blush have any products that cater specifically to showing your feet some loving?
Yes! Farmhouse Fresh Honey Heel Glaze, Cake Triplemint Foot Creme and Principessa Foot Balm. The honey heel glaze is amazing!
Details on Farmhouse Fresh Honey Heel Glaze from their website: A scrumptious bottle of love for heels and toes. This divine honey-based moisture serum seals in moisture and brings rich color back to tired feet. It's been called the Instant Pedicure. Simply brush on and rub into feet for chalkless bliss - no more white ashy look! (We've been told it's fabulous on cracked knuckles too!) This golden jar is a true guilty pleasure from the first moment you let it breathe - fragranced with velvety cinnamon notes, sweet cloves and actual honey. The finest of moisturizing elements have been incorporated from genuine honey, and aloe leaf juice to pineapple and papaya fruit extracts. Honey Heel Glaze is ultra-smooth, non-greasy, and addictive in every way. Includes application brush in a darling carrying box to delight your gift recipients. 96.2% natural and like all FarmHouse Fresh products, Honey Heel Glaze is Paraben & Sulfate free.
Details on Cake Triplemint Foot Creme from their website: A fresh, rich foot creme packed with nourishing butters and oils. Formulated to soothe, cool and nourish rough and tired feet while locking in moisture and instantly gives feet (and legs) a lasting nourished look and feel. Thoroughly massage this superb blend into rough, tired feet and enjoy the ultimate "ahh" moment.
Details on Principessa Pretty Piede Foot Balm from their website: Treat your feet to this delightfully refreshing and nourishing balm that softens like nobody’s business with natural fruit acids, shea butter, vitamin E and many organic indulgent extracts. Works amazing as a hand & body balm too and is scented with belloccia. Pamper your tootsies for results that will leave you feeling like you just had a pedicure at the spa. Use daily for best results and you'll soon be admiring your pretty feet!
Thanks Suzanne for answering our questions! And once again, WELCOME to Uptown Saint John and Market Square! Cheers to your 3rd location!
