The World Duty Free Haul


You may have seen my Sephora haul recently, but what’s a trip through an airport without stopping at World Duty Free? We were travelling through Leeds and, while it was small, they still had a great range to choose from and the staff were so helpful! We had a lovely morning, as it was 5am, and getting my makeup done was such a treat as it actually made me look 10x more awake than I actually was which was a bit of a blessing.

Anyway, I picked up a few bits, mostly YSL as I seem to be going through a phase, so I’ll give you the lowdown on the newbies in my beauty drawer. Starting with the makeup, I picked up the Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation as I tried it in the airport and fell in love, so I had to snap it up! It’s a medium coverage but very perfecting foundation and I’m looking forward to using it now these snaps have been taken! Next are all of the YSL goodies starting with the YSL Sahariennes Bronzing Stones (shade 2) which has the most gorgeous, buttery texture I’ve ever came across in a powder. It’s stunning! I also picked up the YSL Babydoll Kiss and Blush in shade 12 (Moca Garconne) which is a peachy-nude-rose tone, so beautiful! There’s also a set of three YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks (a World Duty Free exclusive!) in the shade 1, a classic red, shade 13, an orange-red and shade 27, a bubblegum pink. They are very long lasting and pigmented, so I can see myself wearing them a lot!

Next we have some skincare and other bits! First is the Lancome Hydra Intense Hydrating Gel Mask which we actually applied on our flight home – yay for advance planning and smooth skin! Next is another item from Lancome and it’s the Lancome Absolu Au Naturel Palette kit in which you get eight eyehadows, blushes, a powder, mascara, eyeliner – you get the idea! There’s a whole lot in this set, so make sure you pick it up as it’s another exclusive. Another little kit is the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Survival Set which contains the original eight hour cream and a little tin form too – perfect for travelling! And finally, we have five gorgeous mini perfumes from Jimmy Choo. They’re 4.5ml each and, again, perfect for your hand luggage and they’ll last you a good while.

So, that’s everything I picked up from World Duty Free! See anything you like?
