En route to see my sister in sunny San Diego I picked up a few bits from heathrow's duty free. I absolutely love shopping at the LHR airport, the beauty selection is just so good, bumping it to perhaps my favourite airport in the world! Here are the products I picked out...
I cannot contain my excitement for my first Chanel product. Its a luxurious brand afterall and I wanted my first product to be special. I fell in love at first swatch with Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick in 38 La Fascinante . The application is so smooth and velvety. The plummy red shade flatters pearly whites too.
Downside is the product seems to shift a little so apply a longer wearing base underneath like a matching lip pencil. This aside, the colour and texture are to die for.
This pink mousse formula mimics a beautiful natural flush of pink on the cheeks for a healthy rosy glow. I've long neglected shades like these giving more attention to the bright bolds but this reminded me of how much I loved the understated dainty no-makeup makeup look. If you've got pigmented lips like me, a little foundation tapped on the lips helps create a neutral base to bring out more colour.
Usually before travel I make a wishlist of duty free goods, but this haul has been unusually spontaneous. I still could not resist picking up a few pieces though because afterall who doesnt love a tax-free bargain?
