DUTY FREE BEAUTY HAUL





One of my favourite things to do when I am at the airport is beauty shopping.  The selections are normally very extensive and you can pick up so great buys.  I recently went on holidays so took full advantage of this and probably spent a tad more than I was originally planning but they are soo tempting I could not leave them be so here is what I picked up.....

My first stop was perfume where I picked up the Chanel Coco Mademoiselle purse spray now this is my signature fragrance and it is always much cheaper on Duty free I picked this up for £47 and it is normally £64.  This is the Eau de Toilette which comes with 3 refills of 20 ml a really handy handbag size which you can take anywhere.

Next up I picked up the Creme De Le Mer lip balm which I have confess I picked up on a whim not knowing anything about it.  I have nearly finished my CD rose balm which is no longer made (silent sob).  Unfortunately I have got used to a super deluxe lip balm and wanted another one! this I thought was a good buy at £35 instead of £42  another good saving! I have not tried it yet so will keep you updated.

Then last stop and a must have in my opinion is the Mac counter as we all know Mac discounts are rare and far between so I always pick up a couple of bits when in duty free this time I got two lip pencils Mac pro long wear lip pencil In Anticipation and pro long wear lip pencil Staunchly Stylish as I have been wanting to channel the Kylie Jenner lip look I had seen on Pixie woo video (check it out) and wanted some neutral lip liners to go with the Twig lipstick that I also picked up.  I am loving this Twig lipstick paired with Staunchly Stylish.  the lip liners were around £12.50 instead of £15 and the lipstick around the same unfortunately I seem to have lost the receipt! oops


What do you pick up at Duty free?

WHATS ON MY FACE THIS WEEK #3



A busy week back at work after a lovely two weeks holiday seems a distant memory now so I thought I would show what's on my face as it's been a while....


I started of my base with Chanel Perfection Lumiere velvet in shade no 30 then used Nars radiant creamy Concealer in Honey which I love really great product! No powder at the moment as I have been using the Sleek Highlighting and contouring palette to give definition followed by the physicians formula happy booster in Rose on the cheeks.

On to the brows very important I use the Sleek brow stylist to fill in any gaps I really like the waxy consistency of this product followed by Maybelline brow drama to set them in place.  

Now on to the eyes I have been using a Mac pencil in brun which I have had a while I know you get get this anymore such a shame as a good dark brown I have been using this on the upper outer lash line to give extra definition along with Nars eyeshadow duo in Surabaya which I am in love with just such lovely colours,

To finish the look I popped this matt lipstick from Makeup revolution in Bliss which for a £1 is a bargain!

WHAT'S ON MY NAILS : FUSE ELECTRIC OR TREAT GEL NAILS



After having gels on my nails for the duration of my holidays when I returned I decided to crack out my nail sensation kit and renewed my mani with this fuse nail shade.  A lovely bright red shade called electric or pop great to go with my tan.  If you have not heard of nail sensation it is a at home gel nail kit from Boots, which gives you salon quality gel nails that last up to two weeks.  

Now I slightly cheat as I use the clear base & top coat which comes in the nailsenation kit with this Fuse polish which Technical you don't need but I like to give added longevity to my mani.  Technically the fuse collection already includes the base and Top coat and so you only need to do is apply one polish I did two thin coats as I find this works best and gives the best finish as you can see super shiny long lasting nails!  This polish is around £15 which yes seems more expensive than a regular polish however you will normally pay £20/£25 for this to be completed in the salon if you use it multiple times it then is much more cost effective!
