Duty Free Makeup Haul

IMG_2251.JPG

An exciting part to any international holiday is getting to go duty free shopping. Whether you want fashion, accessories, technology or beauty, the airport duty free shop has you covered and I can never resist a duty free makeup haul! I either reach for the airport exclusive sets or sometimes find things I never knew I needed/wanted.

Which brings me to this blog post and the beauties I got on my way to Bali at Sydney International Airport. Some of these beauties were on my wishlist and the others were a sneaky splurge.

 

Guerlain Meteorite Pearls - 2, Claire

I have had my eye on these for ages so when I saw this cute little airport exclusive duo I couldn't resist! Other than being totally Insta worthy they create a subtle, luminous glow to your complexion. Each mini cylinder is adorned with a pretty print and also comes with a super cute pink application brush! I am really looking forward to trying these and if I love them I definitely see myself investing in the full size.

 

Giorgio Armani Designer Lift Foundation

I have never tried Georgio Armani foundation but had only heard amazing things, especially about their Luminous Silk formula. But you know me, I like a medium to full coverage and unfortunately that just wasn't cutting it. Thankfully they had the Designer Lift Foundation which was a beautiful formula and coverage without feeling too heavy. Now you're probably wondering why I bought a new foundation when I packed my trusty Cover FX Natural Finish Foundation. Well I forgot I had been gradual tanning over the last few days and am now sporting a slightly darker skin shade, definitely dark enough that you'd notice the difference between my face and body! So this is in the shade '5' which would be my summer tone and I'm really excited to put it to the test!

 

Giorgio Armani Translucent Setting Powder

Naturally I want to lock my base down so I decided to try the G.A setting powder too. It's a lovely, fine milled powder which has an included powder puff.

 

Bobbi Brown Glow Stick - Nude Beach

I have seen these recently on Insta but when I tried them in person I fell in love! They are creamy but blend out beautifully adding a gorgeous highlight or sun kissed glow depending on what shade you get. I picked up 'Nude Beach' and it creates a healthy glow without being too intense. I plan on using this to faux that sun kissed glow but hopefully by the end of my holiday I'll have a natural glow!

 

There were a few other things I was tempted by but considering I also bought a new pair of beats headphones I decided to call the haul. But that doesn't mean I can't get things on the way home ;)

What is your favourite duty free purchase?
