Calling all beauty lovers! If you're visiting London this summer there's one place you need to go - the newly opened Chanel pop-up beauty boutique.

LifestyleThe unique pop-up store located in Covent Garden's famous piazza opened its doors today and will be open until 27 December, offering 57 square metres of chic Chanel fragrance and make-up with stylists and gurus on hand to help.
The brand chose the Covent Garden location because of its rich heritage and managed to set up the black and white themed boutique in time for the London 2012 Olympics.
Inside you will find a wide array of Chanel beauty products, from opulent lipsticks, to stunning nail lacquers to classic perfumes.

There is also a special collection of make-up products celebrating Covent Garden — aptly named the Covent Garden Look, seen above.
All the make-up is so beautifully presented inside it's impossible to leave empty handed. We couldn't resist picking up Chanel's best-selling Soleil tan de Chanel, a cream bronzer that's been praised by beauty experts worldwide and lusted after by beauty junkies.
You can treat yourself to an extra special mani-pedi at Chanel's mini manicure nail bar. It features all the latest trends straight from the Paris catwalks and is a must for the most dedicated beauty addict. Be sure to ask for a pedicure in the brand's best-selling shades - Dragon, a pillar block red, and Rouge Noir — a vampy blood red.

LifestyleNot only will the pop-up store be stocking the brand's plethora of famous beauty products, but it will also be host to exclusive events during the summer including a treasure hunt, educational workshops and consultations with leading Chanel make-up artists. We could definitely learn a thing or two from them…
Chanel has also created a luxurious space dedicated to facials and pampering, and an outdoor area that's been designed to recreate the backstage atmosphere at a Chanel catwalk show.

The 'Les Essentiels De Chanel' collection features a limited edition golden highlighter, a stunning rose blush and a smokey eye quad, to name a few.
We've got our eyes set on the Rouge Coco Shine in Parfait, a gorgeous tender pink glossy lipstick with a touch of gold. It's on our mental wishlist, already.
And if that's not enough, Chanel has promised a very special surprise in store for Christmas 2012. We can't wait!
