A September Duty Free Haul.


I love a good duty free shop. Honestly I would buy up the whole place if money was no issue, but hey! When is money not an issue!

I was in the market for a new perfume, and had actually been looking for ages before we went away. I was almost repurchasing an old Jo Malone favourite (Peony & Blush) before I came across their new and limited edition scent; Poppy & Barley.

I love it. It is just so fresh with a very slight hint of floral. Let's be honest; It just screams me, more so than Peony & Blush, and even Pomegranate Noir. By saying that, I am not sure whether to purchase another bottle of this before it's too late. I don't want to make the same mistake as I did with Nashi Blossom. RIP. I was lucky enough to be given a smaller bottle as a free gift too which has gone straight in my handbag for top ups.

My lovely boyfriend also treated me to my Chanel Chance eau Vive. It is honestly the only Chanel Chance I will wear now, all the rest are too sickly sweet.

I also forgot to pack an eyeshadow, cue the mad dash to the Bobbi Brown counter. I already own a longwear sparkle stick in Galactic and due to a sheer lack of good eyeshadow palettes on sale I opted for another sparkle stick in Goldstone. Well, you can't go wrong with a slick of gold sparkle can you?

I have wanted to try the Benefit They’re Real! Double the Lip for so long, but I also wanted a selection to wear on different days. The Benefit Big Sexy Lipstick Set was exactly what I needed and with only one left on the shelf for a bargain price it was fate.

My favourite shade combination has to be Lusty Rose because it just looks so natural and wearable. The formula is also comfortable to wear too, honestly, they feel so nourishing and don't cling to any dry patches.  Admittedly, none of these shades are out there and like, 'wow'! But that just means they are more wearable during the daytime.
