The Best Duty Free Beauty Purchases

There's nothing more exciting than the feeling of going on holiday and after clearing security I always like to go for a browse in Duty Free. From skincare to perfume there's always a beauty bargain or travel exclusive to pick up, and so today I thought I'd share a few of my favourite Duty Free finds:
 
The best duty free beauty purchases


Having recently cleared out my make up collection it was love at first site with this MAC eyeshadow palette. I rarely experiment with colour anymore, instead preferring to stick to neutral tones and with a selection of shimmery champagnes and matte taupes this is a great one for every day wear. It's just the right size to take traveling and as you'd expect from MAC all the colours are pigmented and with minimal fall out. 

Top Tip: You can now reserve and collect Duty Free purchases online to guarantee that you won't miss out on the day.

It took me a long time to get into primers but now I wouldn't be without for special occasions. Benefit Porefessional Pearl Primer has a light silicone texture which just glides onto the skin, minimises the appearance of pores and gives it a nice smooth base for foundation. It's got a subtle soft pink focus too which helps to add just a touch more radiance and glow compared to the original Porefessional.


Perfume is one of my favourite Duty Free purchases and I love the idea of associating a scent with a particular holiday. There are so many fragrances and brands to choose from but recently I've been gravitating towards Jo Malone. There's just something so beautiful yet classic about their colognes and you can always guarantee a good saving compared to the high street. 

The 2 shown above are actually my wedding perfumes (I'd totally recommend the Jo Malone Scent Your Wedding service by the way) but next time I travel I'm planning on picking up the matching body cremes and maybe a diffuser or summer perfume too.

Another daily staple that's worth stocking up on in Duty Free. From dry lips to cuticles and cracked skin, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream is one of those multi purpose products that I like to have in my collection at all times. It comes in particularly handy when traveling long haul to help protect against the dry cabin air, and I've come to find it's familiar herbal scent really comforting and soothing. 

Have you tried any of the products featured above? What are your favourite Duty Free purchases?
