I posted a picture to my Facebook a few weeks back of my recent shopping spree in dutyfree. Loads of you wanted to see what I bought so here goes....
Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Stay In Place Makeup - My brother is getting married in Portugal this summer and I am delighted to be making up the bridal party. Because it will be so hot and humid I wanted to trial run this foundation to see is it as good as everyone says. It is a sheer to medium coverage and promises to last up to 15 hours. It is lighter than the original Double Wear so your skin can breathe throughout the day but it doesn't budge or melt off with the heat. Lastly, it is photo-friendly which is a must for brides. Oh and Rosanna Davison wore it on her wedding day in Ibiza so if it's good enough for her then it will be perfect for my bride.
Rituals Magic Touch Whipped Body Cream & Ginkgo Hand Balm - I have heard loads about Rituals before but this was my first purchase from the brand. I chose these two solely based on their scent and am slightly addicted already. I cannot wait to try out more from this brand.
YSL Volupte Tint In Oil "I Rose You" - This is like a tinted treatment oil for your lips. It contains 4 essential oils for deep hydration and is lightweight and non sticky. Another item I was trialing for the wedding. I love it but think this shade is a little too light for my bride.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Concealer - I wanted to get this for ages as I am always on the hunt for the holy grail of concealers and had heard amazing things about this. I am currently road testing it so keep an eye out for a full review soon.
Chanel Sublime De Chanel Mascara, Rouge Allure Lipstick 104 Passion & Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick 477 Réveuse - These were all complete impulse buys. I have always wanted a classic Chanel red lipstick so chose Passion. This is a beautiful intense blue-red shade (which makes your teeth look white) that covers brilliantly in just one coat. I'm in LOVE!!! The Rouge Coco Shine is a perfect everyday lipstick and you can never have too many black mascaras. The Sublime De Chanel lengthen and curls my lashes beautifully but to be honestly I still prefer my Maybelline Sensational Lash.
Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadow 82 Émerveillé - This is a mix between a cream and mousse shadow and is perfect for applying with your fingers. Emerveille is a gorgeous rose/peachy gold tone and looks beautiful and shimmery on the eyelids. I thought it would be perfect for summer on it owns or as a base for a smokey look.
Chanel Lumiére D'éte Illuminating Powder - Another complete impulse buy but it was so pretty and I swear I heard it call out to me as I passed. Basically it's a bronzer ( a very expensive bronzer but a bronzer all the same). Doesn't it look gorgeous....It's a dream to apply, doesn't look orangey and is so finely milled it looks invisible on the skin. So well worth the €45!!!!!
