Default Madam Primpernelle's Beautifying Potions



Located at 275 Diagon Alley, Madam Primpernelle's Beautifying Potions seeks to aid the everyday witch or wizard in maintaining or improving her or his physical appearance. With skincare products that remove warts, acne and worse, and hair care potions that will make one's locks luxurious and glossy, this shop should be the first stop on any image-conscious witch or wizard's visit to Diagon Alley!

As you proceed inside the store you notice that it is divided into two parts. To the right, you will encounter aisles filled with Beauty Care Potions to treat all of your beauty problems, including warts, pimples, dry skin, sunburn, and many more. To the left of the store, you will find aisles filled with Beauty Enhancement Potions, potions that have been designed to help you look your best. They range from simple products, such as hair colour changing potions and teeth whitening potions, to much more dangerous potions that can help you become thinner and younger looking. The shelves are filled with bottles, flasks, and containers of different shapes, sizes, and colours.

The counter is located in the middle of the store. It is decorated with small flower arrangements, a glass bowl filled with bonbons, business cards with the store's contact information, a few magazines (including Witch Weekly and Rumours!), small brochures and pamphlets with coupons and special deals, and small flasks of fragrance samples. If you have any questions about a product, can't find a certain potion, or are in dire need of immediate magical help for your beauty problems the shopkeeper will be more than happy to help you.

Constant Vigilance! O_O AWAKE!

While she'd traded her glasses for contacts years ago, her parents had refused to pay for anything magical to correct her vision. Mostly due to not understanding quite how it worked, in her own opinion. Today was the day, though. She'd gotten the first few months' of her Quidditch pay, and gee golly gosh was Margaret Turov ready to be done with the silly little twice-a-day ritual of being able to see properly. Plus, the side benefit of not having to worry about her contacts just plain falling out of her eyes during a Quidditch match. There was no chance of her preventing goals if she couldn't see the Quaffle coming!

Her hair neatly tucked into a pair of braids and wearing glasses, the Wimbourne Wasps' keeper made her way to Madam Primpernelle's. They had some sort of vision-correcting potion, right? She was fairly certain she'd seen it before. She adjusted her glasses as she walked in the door, and kept her head bent slightly. She didn't want to be recognized by any Quidditch fans today.

Athena was in a state of despair as she desperately searched for a solution to fix her unruly hair. The sudden weather change from Nice to London had wreaked havoc on her once beautiful curls, turning them into a frizzy, tangled mess. She knew she should have been better prepared for the humidity, but now she was in dire need of a potion to save her hair from becoming a complete puffball.

As she walked into the shop, her eyes darted around the shelves, searching for a solution. And then, she saw it - the Humidity Immunity potion. Her relief was palpable, and she let out an almost mournful wail. "Thank Merlin." Yes, it may have been a bit dramatic, but for Athena, her hair was no joke.

Finally reaching for the potion, she held it close to her chest, feeling as if it was the answer to her prayers. She had to admit, she was a bit embarrassed by how much her hair was affecting her, but she couldn't help it. To her, her hair was her crowning glory, and she would go to great lengths to ensure it looked its best.

Taking a deep breath, Athena mustered a small smile, grateful to have found the potion she needed. She couldn't wait to see the results and to finally have her luscious curls back.

The sound of the door indicated someone else had come in after her, and Margaret ducked behind a shelf to have a peek. Just to make sure it wasn't anyone who would definitely recognize her, like a former Hogwarts classmate. To her relief, it was a woman she did not recognize. Smiling a bit at the woman's reaction to finding whatever it was she'd been looking for, Margaret stopped hiding and carried on looking for the Perfect Vision Potion she'd come in for. Which....she slowly realized must be on the shelf right next to the woman's potion.

Cautiously walking over to the potion, Margaret kept her head down, avoiding eye contact. She was still unnecessarily worried about being recognized. "Hello," she said quietly as she adjusted her glasses and looked over the shelf. Now where was that vision potion..."

Athena hadn't even noticed anyone else was in the shop, but she was being rather obtuse. "Oh, salut, sorry for the dramatics earlier." She blushed. Of course she had made some kind of fool of herself. "My hair has just been dreadful since I moved back to London."

She noticed the woman squinting at the potions. Athena should probably become more familiar with them now that she's to be working here herself. Everyone seems to package them differently though. "Can I help you find what you're looking for?" She looked like she was having trouble seeing.

"Nothing to apologize for," Margaret said with a smile and a quick glance at the older woman. "You came to the right place for hair potions," she added. She'd purchased many a hair potion here over the last several summers. There was a reason her hair was--in her own opinion and many others'--so silky and manageable, despite its length. And that reason was about 80% potions and 20% keeping it in a braid or two during Quidditch practices and matches.

Focusing again on the eye-related potions, Margaret finally just picked one up to read the label better. Dry Eyes. No...that wasn't her issue.

At the woman's offer of help, Margaret raised her eyebrows and gave her another glance. Not that she really needed help, but this woman seemed particularly thoughtful. "That's very kind of you to offer," she said, trying to find a polite way to decline the help. She set the Dry Eyes potion down and picked up a bottle from next to it. A quick glance at the label, and she knew that was the one she'd been looking for. "This is it, actually," she said, giving her most charming smile. "Perfect Vision...so I can finally be rid of my glasses," she added, by way of explanation. Not that she wore her glasses often, but that woman didn't know that.

Listen. Boys needed to take care of their skin too, ok?

Especially growing boys. Who were working themselves to the point of exhaustion. When his gran had made a very pointed remark about the state of the bags under his eyes, he knew he had to do something to take care of them and fast. So, Moritz Schultz found himself at Madam Primpernelles, looking for whatever it was you put on your under eyes to make them look not so pathetic.

True, he COULD just...focus on getting more sleep and not overbooking himself, but that was a silly suggestion.

Running a hand through his blond hair he sighed heavily and examined the shelves. His eyes landed on the tonic labeled for under eye bags - FOUR SICKLES?! For that tiny bottle?!

Sarah thinks I'm cute | Shan's safe space.

Her basket was charmed to float behind her, which was for the best given that it was quickly becoming full. And though she was stronger than she looked (all of the self defence and mixed martial arts paid off), Florrie was very much of the school of thought that if you didn't have to carry something, why should you? And if you did have to carry it, then undetectable extension & featherlight charms were an absolute must. Which was why her handbag carried both.

After adding a Pearly Whites Potion to the basket, she paused in front of the Spa menu. Maybe she should book herself in for something, soon. She deserved a treat.

To say that Theo had perfected the art of looking engaged when he was, in fact, sackably far from it was... perhaps not one hundred percent true, but at least accurate-adjacent. He had his moments, but so long as he held off on the spritzing of fragrances when no one was in the vicinity - or accidentally finding unprotected eyes or mouths - and did at least return to earth for a short interaction with customers who drifted his way like the particles of scents and perfumes drifted around and away from him, he was generally free to lose himself to his thoughts.

He kept moving too, idling across the shop floor so that his body would get the exercise it needed along with his mind, and today he was doing just that when he happened upon a familiar sight. A familiar person, in fact. Theo slowed to a stop, and considered the customer for a moment; once his memory caught up with his eyes, however, it clicked. This was someone he'd known in his school daze.

In a move that might have been automatic, Theo spritzed the scent he currently held - a fruity fragrance in an electric blue glass bottle - into his own path, and walked through it before approaching Florrie Charbonneau perusing the spa menu. "Can't fault a good massage," he said, by way of greeting.

Florrie knew someone was approaching her before they stopped, but she didn't turn around. Her nose wrinkled gently when they stilled next to her, before relaxing a little bit. Fruity wasn't the kind of fragrance she was drawn too herself, preferring a darker, muskier scent with maybe a hint of light florals, and it practically made her want to sneeze. She didn't, though. Nor did she move her gaze from the menu she was looking at, at least not until they spoke.

Though she would often pretend otherwise, Florrie wasn't one to forget a face, and it didn't take too long before she realised who was talking to her. Theo. Cooper's kinda hot dormmate (because that was how she associated him, even if they'd been out of school for a long time now). With a smirk, she looked him up and down before responding, "You offering?"

"Above my pay grade," Theo said airily. "You'd need someone qualified for it to be the relaxing experience it's meant to be." As he spoke, he kept things business-like and to the point, yet when he looked at her and caught her eye, Theo sent just the shadow of a wink her way in response to that smirk.

"But if you need anything that a spritz of a fragrance can accomplish, I'm your guy." Otherwise, they could just pretend to be discussing said fragrances, and he could look busy enough to get paid, but, with any luck, it wouldn't be necessary to express that verbally.

"What a shame," Florrie murmured back, glancing around. "Maybe relaxing isn't what I'm looking for." Though a massage did sound like something she needed, with the toll her gym routine had been taking lately. Easier to stay busy and exhausted, rather than think about things. Watching Theo, she noticed the wink and she loved it - the way she loved every wink a particularly hot person offered her.

"A fragrance? I see. Maybe there's something you can recommend?" And she could pretend she would change from the one she'd worn for the past five years whilst he looked busy.

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

Pimples were the most annoying things ever!

There was a small cluster of tiny ones on her right cheek and it made Nova very, very self conscious. She was so used to her skin being smooth and flawless. No, it wouldn’t do her any good to sit around doing nothing in the hopes that they would be gone in a blink of an eye. So, despite annoying Kennedy {okay, he wasn’t so annoying anymore} wanting to hang around with her, she had wasting no time in dragging him along to Madam Primpernelle’s for a Pimple Poofer.

Nova snuck a look at the boy at her side, trying to decide if she had annoyed him because she determinedly brought them here before any other stop in Diagon Alley. It was okay if he was mad with her; Nova didn’t care very much. She sort of figured out that he was immune to her sarcasm and attitude and what other negative traits she may have. “Remember, Pimple Poofer is what we’re looking for,’’ Nova reminded Kennedy, her gaze moving back to the shelves.

She was no stranger to make up, having started wearing a little bit here and there from her third year onward - and yet she'd managed to always get her product from a little muggle shop right outside DA instead of actually at Madam Primpernelle's. So on arriving into the shop, arm looped through Maria's for their excursion, her eyes widened a bit at the vast stock that was all around. UM. How was there SO many things? She eyed the scents for a moment, considering if she wanted to see what Primpernelle's had to offer - before deciding nothing could hold up to her signature citrus-y scent. Plenty of time under the sun also gave Vera a natural tan for the summer, though maybe some of the tanning lotions for winter might be nice to invest in....

No. She was getting distracted. Turning her head, she grinned at Maria before steering her towards the hair products. "Thank you for coming with me to take a look! I want to do something more natural, maybe just darker than my current shade. But you know me, coming here on my own I'd probably walk out with something bright GREEN or something on a whim." Not because she even wanted that, but because... why not?

Bronwen typically loved shopping, but usually she opted to do so from the comfort of a tour bus or hotel room, online, with her sisters. She hardly ever went shopping in-person and if she did, it never felt as overwhelming as this: so many people her age, running around, knowing exactly what it was they were looking for.

So when she stepped inside the beauty shop it was only by complete coincidence.

Without knowing what store it was, she looked around for context clue - trying to piece together where she was.

.... Pharmacy?

Perhaps it would help if she stepped out of the way of the door. (Which she, of course, did not do).

Alissa had insisted that she could do her shopping by herself. Her parents had accompanied her to Diagon Alley, and after they had opened a Gringotts account she had been given a pouch of coins, her school shopping list, and instructions to meet them at the ice cream shop at 4. At the moment she was just trying to get her bearings. She had never been in Diagon Alley before. She'd only moved to London two weeks ago. There were people bustling up and down the street, some adults but mostly children, those that would become her new classmates. And while she was still sulking over the fact that she had been forced to leave behind her old classmates, she wasn't totally against meeting new ones.

She passed another shop. A sign above the door proclaimed it as Madam Primpernelle's Beautifying Potions. Beauty supplies weren't on her list, but she did have a little spending money. She didn't think there was anything she needed really, but there was no harm in looking. She glanced in the window and - WAS THAT BRONWEN GRIMALDI?? One of the Grimaldi kids?? With the superstar mothers of Grimoire, one of her favorite bands ever?? She had known that the kids were starting Hogwarts this year; she'd read about it in the papers. It was one of the only things that had quelled her endless complaints about having to transfer. Because now she was going to be at school with the Grimaldi kids. As soon as she'd heard the news she'd begun implementing a plan to become best friends with at least one of them. And Bronwen Grimaldi was standing right there in the shop in front of her.

Okay, Liss, be cool. She coached herself. Acting all starstruck was not going to be a good way to show that she was prime bestie material. Bronwen may have had famous parents but she was just a girl the same age as her; Alissa didn't think she would appreciate someone acting like she was only cool because of her family's fame. She was going to be totally chill about this and not freak out at all.

Alissa pushed through the door of Madam Primpernelle's very casually, as if she was just there to browse the perfumes. She didn't have to keep up the ruse, though, because Bronwen was still standing directly in the doorway. Alissa glanced at her. "Hello. Are you going in?"

He might not have lowered his volume enough with this question. "Oh, how about this Old-No-More? Didn't you say you wish you didn't have those winkles around your eyes when you smile? I think you look fine with them," He smiled to make sure his eyes crinkled as well.

Not because she even wanted that, but because... why not?
Maria was in an upbeat mood as she stepped into Madam Primpernells arm looped into Vera's they entered. Within two seconds of taking in all the perfume scents Maria let out a series of loud sneezes "Atchoooo! Atchoo! Atchoooo!" Eyes going a bit watery as she scrambled around in her purse for a handkerchief she apologized to Vera "Sorry, I guess my nose isn't used to all the strong scents, but I'll be all right in a minute." Hopefully, Maria didn't want to retreat out of the shop before even being there five minutes.

Looping her arm into Vera's again she tagged along over to the hair products display. Smiling Maria laughed "I could totally see you rock the green, but yes going for a darker shade of your current colour might be good or you can take that spiffy pink over there, and just try it on your bangs for a hello hoggies here i come!" Maria gestured towards the pink hair dye a few shelves away... She could use some new nail polish.

Maria gestured towards the pink hair dye a few shelves away... She could use some new nail polish.
Vera looked at sideways at Maria with concern, digging into her pocket where she knew her nose clip sat from her earlier shift. She'd cleaned it earlier with an alcohol wipe at the shop, so she offered it now towards her friend. "Do you want to try this? It's not particularly fashionable but it might help with the strong smells." Or if it was really going to bother the Hufflepuff, they could go to Malkins or something and Vera could come back another time on her own.

Regardless, they did continue further into the store and it seemed like maybe it was a little better for her friend the further away they got. That was good at the very least! At the vote of confidence, Ve gave an exaggerated fair toss with her hand and grinned. "I mean, I'm sure either of us could pull off whatever we wanted but I should at least go for my own house pride or something neutral." Neutral meaning a color not associated to any of the houses that was, such as the suggested pink. Picking up the aforementioned bottle she looked over the back of it, reading the ingredients and how long it was supposed to last to see if she DID want to try something fun. "Do you think people still do that trend of just like... a couple streaks of color in their hair? I don't think I'd want a full head of something... but like a dip dye might be fun!" But it would also have to be something that looked decent with red considering she didn't want to clash with her own robes. "How's your summer going already, by the way? You and Kion been up to anything fun?"

EXCUSE YOU, POTTER.

Nova Paton did not come onto anyone, conditions or not. But she did possess a lot of drive, and even if she was warming up to Kennedy after many, many years, she was not to be distracted by her goals in life. He could either come along for the ride or go bye-bye, it didn’t bother her what was chosen. The thing was, part of Nova knew that she’d miss his mostly antagonising presence if he left. And well… having his attention was nice, as she had grudgingly admitted to herself recently.

His doxy dung pimple recipe? Uh, hard pass. Nova would rather fight off a hundred dementors - WHAT WAS THAT HE SAID? Nova turned sharply to face Kennedy, and though she wasn’t angry {because she knew Kennedy’s antics too much to take him seriously}. She wasn’t going to let him get away with those words. “Oh, sweetheart,’’ Nova said smoothly, whipping out her wand. “You really ought to watch what you say to me. Furnunculus.” The up side to being of age is being able to perform magic out of Hogwarts. “I must say you’ll look quite dashing with pimples yourself.” Should her curse be successful, of course. Her wand was holstered again.

Ah, lovely. They were even standing before the shelves filled with Pimple Poofer. How convenient.

Her wand was holstered again.

Ah, lovely. They were even standing before the shelves filled with Pimple Poofer. How convenient.
Kennedy was beginning to feel that this shopping trip wouldn't be so bad. A day with Nova, who was going to see the best in him... eventually. He took this as a test on how he would handle her at her.... hah, as if she had a worst. "Sweeheart, already? I knew you couldn't resi-" Well, that was a quick way to stop him. He could feel something off about his face as soon as she said the curse. He should be shocked. Insulted even. But how did Kennedy feel? Bumpy.

"Oh yeah? Is this all it takes for you to notice my looks?" Kennedy considered what he should do with his wand. He was of age as well now. "Well, I think you'd look amazing with-Crinus Muto," Should that spell hit, it'd give her hair a nice rainbow hue. Sure, it wasn't as unflattering as a face full of pimples but it'd go great with her set of pimples.

With her start of term essentially all purchased and already packed in her trunk for the coming term, Diamond hit the streets of Diagon Alley on assignment. Summer was always her favorite time of year since it was when Witch Weekly tended to lean a bit more on its youth contributors for its coveted (in her eyes) August editions. Which meant out were the food products and IN were the beauty ones. Specifically she wanted to look at the lipgloss options so she could test them out with Theia later. But today was not ALL about content and clout, remarkably. Everyone could please stop clutching their pearls in shock.

No, no no. Today the budding wizarding world influencer was looking for some product for herself and her own personal use as well. Seeing as she was on the cusp of her BIG break in wizarding sports and media, she needed to look the part. She was still working on mum to let her go on a shopping spree at Malkins, but she was confident she would cave eventually. After all, Diamond had exceeded expectations with her school marks her first year so it wasn't like any of this was distracting her!

Browsing the eye enhancement displays, the Gryffindor idly picked up a phial of Natural Sparkle and considered it. "HmmmmmmmmmmmmMMMMMMMMmmmm..."

It's not particularly fashionable but it might help with the strong smells." Or if it was really going to bother the Hufflepuff, they could go to Malkins or something and Vera could come back another time on her own.

Regardless, they did continue further into the store and it seemed like maybe it was a little better for her friend the further away they got. That was good at the very least! At the vote of confidence, Ve gave an exaggerated fair toss with her hand and grinned. "I mean, I'm sure either of us could pull off whatever we wanted but I should at least go for my own house pride or something neutral." Neutral meaning a color not associated to any of the houses that was, such as the suggested pink. Picking up the aforementioned bottle she looked over the back of it, reading the ingredients and how long it was supposed to last to see if she DID want to try something fun. "Do you think people still do that trend of just like... a couple streaks of color in their hair? I don't think I'd want a full head of something... but like a dip dye might be fun!" But it would also have to be something that looked decent with red considering she didn't want to clash with her own robes. "How's your summer going already, by the way? You and Kion been up to anything fun?"
Maria was still wiping her nose and eyes with her handkerchief when Vera offered her a clip that she could put on her nose against the heavy perfume smells. Smiling she said "Thanks Vera, I think I'll be okay in a minute, if not I'll take you up on borrowing that nose clip. Where have you got a nose clip anyway?" Luckily if Maria borrowed the clip than Kion wasn't there to stare at her nose contraption.

The further they got into the store, and the more space they put between them, and the perfumes display made Maria's nose thank merlin stop itching enough that she'd sneeze. It would be hard to focus on the errand she was her with her friend to buy if she kept sneezing. Raising her brows in suprise and mild confusion Maria asked "Now you want to dye your hair red and gold like the lions, but I thought you wanted pink or more black?" Nodding she considered her question. "I think it's still popular to just dye some strands of hair another colour. It seems sensible too because then you can feel in you like the colour your trying out or not. Didn't your housemate Remy dye her hair last year?" Or had Maria misremembered? Could she get her daddy's to allow her to dye a few strands of her bushy big hair blue or bronze? Nah, maybe it'd look super weird. That was why nailpolish was safer.

Thinking about Kion made Maria's face glow with warmth. "We had a date at floreans just the other day actually. I think I'm in love with Kion..." Oops she hadn't meant to blurt that out.. "Erm, so what's going on with you and Logan? Any news?"

Her parents had accompanied her to Diagon Alley, and after they had opened a Gringotts account she had been given a pouch of coins, her school shopping list, and instructions to meet them at the ice cream shop at 4. At the moment she was just trying to get her bearings. She had never been in Diagon Alley before. She'd only moved to London two weeks ago. There were people bustling up and down the street, some adults but mostly children, those that would become her new classmates. And while she was still sulking over the fact that she had been forced to leave behind her old classmates, she wasn't totally against meeting new ones.

She passed another shop. A sign above the door proclaimed it as Madam Primpernelle's Beautifying Potions. Beauty supplies weren't on her list, but she did have a little spending money. She didn't think there was anything she needed really, but there was no harm in looking. She glanced in the window and - WAS THAT BRONWEN GRIMALDI?? One of the Grimaldi kids?? With the superstar mothers of Grimoire, one of her favorite bands ever?? She had known that the kids were starting Hogwarts this year; she'd read about it in the papers. It was one of the only things that had quelled her endless complaints about having to transfer. Because now she was going to be at school with the Grimaldi kids. As soon as she'd heard the news she'd begun implementing a plan to become best friends with at least one of them. And Bronwen Grimaldi was standing right there in the shop in front of her.

Okay, Liss, be cool. She coached herself. Acting all starstruck was not going to be a good way to show that she was prime bestie material. Bronwen may have had famous parents but she was just a girl the same age as her; Alissa didn't think she would appreciate someone acting like she was only cool because of her family's fame. She was going to be totally chill about this and not freak out at all.

Alissa pushed through the door of Madam Primpernelle's very casually, as if she was just there to browse the perfumes. She didn't have to keep up the ruse, though, because Bronwen was still standing directly in the doorway. Alissa glanced at her. "Hello. Are you going in?"
"Hm?" It took Bee a moment to register that the voice coming from behind was addressing her. "Oh, yeah, thanks." What was she thankful for exactly? The reminder? Maybe that. Not wanting to embarrass herself, the brunette took another step into the store, moving so that she wasn't blocking the way anymore. "What kind of store is this" She found herself looking back to the other girl, her eyebrows furrowed in an inquisitive sort of way as she took off her sunnies and let them hang from the neckline of her flowing sundress.

The sunnies were meant to be part of a disguise, but Bronwen didn't really understand the point. It was fun when everyone else was involved, but on her own, she felt stupid wearing them indoors. Her scarf could stay though, she liked that it added to her look.

Come now, Kennedy.

Could you not tell that she was being sarcastic?

Nova pressed her lips together to keep from laughing quite loudly and unlady-like. She did, however, snigger at her companion’s new look. Oooh, it was the perfect little revenge to his sassiness! And though it would not be admitted out loud by her, Kennedy’s handsomeness had diminished considerably. Nova quite preferred that flawless face, but fat chance of her saying that out loud! So, in response to his words, she simply rolled those dark eyes of hers. “Whatever you want to think, dear.” Oh, the young woman was having a marvellous time calling him terms of endearment that were clearly not meant that way for him.

Now, having had Kennedy around her so much, it was impossible not to know how his mind worked. She had returned her wand to her holster, knowing there would be retaliation. Part of her actually wanted to know what spell would be used on her. Rainbow coloured hair! Her cousin, Jude, immediately came to mind because he loved rainbow colours and the entire family knew it. Grinning, Nova admired her reflection in some product containers. “I think…” She reached up to remove her scrunchie and shook her hair loose. “I’ll look better if this is on display, don’t you think?” Nova arranged her long hair that reached the base of her ribs, quite artfully so that each colour was displayed in abundance.

And just to continue messing with Kennedy's mind, she leaned in to kiss him on the cheek. "So considerate you are." Smirking again, Nova turned back to the Pimple Poofers, selected a jar for herself.
