One my favourite things about flying is airport shopping.
The airport is full of all the things I love to purchase. Makeup, fragrance, jewellery and accessories.
So, I leave my husband browsing the whisky aisles and I dash off like I am a contestant on supermarket sweep.
This time, we were flying out of Birmingham Airport. Its been a few years since I flew from Birmingham and last time the duty-free shopping was a bit limited but this time i was really impressed.
The first thing I spotted was a Jo Malone shop. I have always wanted to try Jo Malone products so this was my chance to make my first purchase.
I decided on a candle and went for the Peony and Blush Suede fragrance and since I returned from holiday I have burned a lot of it already and the smell is divine. The packaging it also exquisite. Its boxed and bagged in the most beautiful way. This would be such a lovely christmas present for someone.
It’s safe to say, I will definitely be making more Jo Malone purchases in the future.
I then headed over to the make up section. I wanted some more YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipsticks.
I chose these shades –
I absolutely love these lipsticks. I don’t suit bright, highly pigmented lipsticks so these are perfect for me. TheY feel amazing on your lips and I am a sucker for good packaging. This really is the best looking lipstick available (in my opinion).
Whilst in YSL I also picked up this eyeshadow palette. I don’t wear eyeshadow everyday but when I do I like a smoky eye so this palette is perfect.
I then moved into Dior. I have never tried Dior makeup before. I picked up and concealer and blusher.
This blusher looks terrifying as its so bright, but the sales assistant applied some to my cheeks and I fell in love with it. It much more subtle than how it looks in the palette.
I also picked up 3 fragrances.
Chanel – No5 L’Eau
Elie Saab – Rose Couture
All of threse fragrances are beautiful but if i had to pick a favourite, it woud be Gucci Bamboo. This one seems to last all day. I hate spending a load of money on perfume you cant smell 5 minutes after you have applied it.
I do plan to do a blog reviewing some of these products so look out for that if you are interested in any more information on any of them.
Thanks for reading
