. TRAVEL MAKEUP EXCLUSIVES x ESTEE LAUDER .
One of my favourite things about going on holiday, is of course indulging in a spot of duty free shopping on route to the aeroplane. Duty free shopping is something i’ve come to really indulge in over the last few years, I find it impossible to pass through all the beauty counters without picking up my makeup and skincare favourites, and even better some travel exclusives which are always a gem to find. On my way skiing this week I picked up a little MAC and Laura Mercier & my UAE trip pre Christmas turned into a rather large haul (I wrote a post on my ‘best duty free makeup buys‘ which you can check out). It’s hard to resist the tax free prices, but even more so the special sets available & spending my ‘holiday money’ which we all know comes off the magical money tree.

Estee Lauder, Bobbi Brown and Clinique are some of my favourite beauty brands and this seasons travel exclusives have seriously stolen top position on my beauty favourites list this year. Bobbi Brown has always been one of my absolute favourite beauty brands and I have a few of their eyeshadow palettes within my collection already (one of which is a travel exclusive my dad bought me a couple of years ago), but their smokey eye sets have always caught my eye and been top of my wish list. This smokey eye travel set literally has it all covered, from shadow & liner to mascara and makeup remover, its the total set & creates such a gorgeous smokey look. The instant pretty palette is also a fab exclusive for this season, with the perfect nude & brown eyeshadow colour palette & of course a little bit of pink blush too (it’s also an ideal handbag makeup bag size so comes to work with me daily just in case I need to top up or upgrade my look for post work fun)!
I’ve always used Clinique skincare and the moisture surge is a range both my mum and I adore. So richly moisturising but light and delicate on your skin, the eye cream feels so luxurious on your eyes its like a mini spa treatment. I’ve actually not used the CC cream before, but the travel exclusive includes both the moisturisers and the CC cream and so this week i’ve been using it daily (perfect because it includes SPF 30 & helps hide and pink blemish tones which is a saviour for me). I’ve been really impressed with it, and it actually gives such a great base you can go much lighter on foundation on tinted moisturiser. The trio of chubby eyeshadow sticks is also another real favourite (and great value versus buying them individually too), I love the soft golden hues of the sticks & blended together they create a gorgeous smokey lid for an evening out.
Estee Lauder and it’s infamous advanced night repair serum is a firm favourite amongst almost every single person I know, the travel exclusive includes both the facial and eye serums which is the perfect duo but not only that I absolutely love their complete beauty sets like the one I’ve featured here … from eyeliner and lipliner, to shadows, powder & blush, the set has everything you need and makes for the perfect travel kit. I’m actually off to Stockholm next week with work and so i’ll be taking this with me to cover all my beauty essentials as it’s so compact and lightweight so ideal for when you don’t have checked in luggage.

Travel exclusive beauty sets are something i’ve actually always been a big fan of, in fact it was probably my dad who got me into them originally, often buying me Chanel, Bobbi Brown, MAC & Clinique makeup sets for Christmas and Birthdays which he’d pick up on his travels. I’ve always loved the limited edition designs & curation of the brands ‘best’ bits all in one fabulous travel size kit. I’ve actually got quite a fab collection which i’ve built up over the years and I find them the perfect ‘bag size’ sets to take to work or on my travels with me, which is super handy given how often I like to adventure abroad.
