Wednesday night saw the glitzy launch of Firma Men´s Skin Care hosted by L'estétic Cosmetic and of course Firma Berlin in the extremely swanky Quartier 206 / Departmentstore Berlin on Friedrichstrasse.The night was a huge success and saw the likes of Freestyle Magazine schmoozing with high flier's from all walks of life. Among the lucky people there were bloggers Frank from "iheartberlin" and also Paul from "bemyownstylist" who were both very impressed by the party and also the skincare range.
While the champagne flowed there were Nars makeup counters overflowing with testers which were descended upon instantaneously. It was there that I met fellow testee Gabriella Buschmann who informed me that the shocking pink lipstick we had both just grabbed for was named Schiap, developed by fabulous 60's designer Elsa Schiaparelli.
Another glass of champagne and then on to the next sample station! This time it was the turn of the perfume counter. Faced with an overwhelming sea of little glass bottles it was a difficult task to choose just a few favourates. Comme De Garcon's Odeaur 53 was described to me as "like a walk in the wood" although it was difficult to concentrate on just one scent, I left smelling of at least 10 different fragrances!

The Firma range comes highly recommended, if you are in the area why not go down and see for yourself what all the fuss was about!
