On a rather balmy Wednesday evening Harvey Nic's flung open its doors to welcome the Edinburgh Festival with a little party of its own.
The first floor was flooded with Mid Summers Night Dream references intertwined between cosmetics and accessories. All of it washed down with bubbly.
Scotland's grand master of burlesque, Tina Warren, took to a pretty pink stage for a subtle strip tease. Her canary yellow frock yelling from the platform as it was flirtatiously flung to the floor.
Between acts a trip to the MAC counter was in order with my girlfriend, where I fell in love with a bubble gum pink stain and she finally gave into the power of lip stick. The silly billy thought she was strictly a gloss girl until staring at her incredibly blue eyes courtesy of a coral concoctions by the brand. Safe to say she's now a convert.
Finally Ms Lou Hickey wrapped up the performances with a smokey rendition of a Motown classic and then it was off home with a fuzzy head fit for bed.
