Agnès b. Harmony Makeup Pouch

without comments

agnesb_setLike other beauty collections including Sonia Rikyel and Ladurée, French brand Agnès b. only offers its makeup ranges in Asia, and this particular set was exclusive to Singapore Airlines (although I believe it might be discontinued now – sorry!).

The Agnès b. Harmony Makeup Pouch contains a series of products selected by the designer herself, according to the airline, to achieve “an intense and luminous look”. These include  theAgnès B.B. Cream SPF 20 PA++ in 01 Light, B. Glossy Stick Shimmering Lipstick in 2132 Framboise Glossy, the Palette Sublim’ Regard Eye-Enhancing Kit for Eyebrows and Eyelids, a Contour Haute Def Eyeliner Pencil in Black  and a free Agnès B. Beauté Makeup Pouch. The eyeliner is made in Germany, the palette is made in Italy,  the lipstick is made in China and the BB cream is made in France, making for a truly international set!

This is one of the nicest and best put-together makeup sets I have seen in a while – every product is something I would be happy to have bought individually. The palette shades are pigmented, the lipstick is very comfortable and the eyeliner doesn’t budge, and the BB cream is a match (which is rare as I am very light and most Asian BB creams lean towards yellow). Priced at a very reasonable S$87 (about $70), I consider this set a success.

After opening its first duty-free counter at Hong Kong International airport, beauty brand Agnès b. has launched a travel-retail set for airlines, which is available exclusively on board Korean Airlines flights.

The Agnès b. B. Trendy makeup pouch is priced at $68 and comes with the brand’s beauty blemish (BB) cream, which carries a SPF20 and PA++ protection; a glossy lipstick (but I don’t know the shade, sorry!); a pink mini-gloss; MonoBlush powder in a peachy shade; a heart-shaped mirror; and a branded makeup pouch.

I haven’t tried Agnès b. makeup products yet – if you have, please share your thoughts!

On location: Agnès b. beauty at Hong Kong International airport

with one comment

Agnès b. beauty display at Hong Kong International airportFrench fashion brand Agnès b., whose beauty range is produced by L’Oréal, has opened its first airport counter at Hong Kong International airport with retailer Nuance-Watson (HK). The brand is more famous for its clothes than its cosmetics, but it has a large retail presence around the world (230 stores, including 150 in Asia) and is now available at the  airport’s Temptation Duty Free beauty stores.

To celebrate its duty-free debut, Agnès b. has created an exclusive travel-retail set. The b. yourself kit comes with a specially-designed makeup pouch, a Contour High Def eyeliner, a Palette Trio set of three eyeshadow shades, a b. glossy lip gloss and a tube of b. b. cream.

I can’t vouch for the quality of the products as I have never tried any cosmetics from the Agnès b. range, but if you do let us know. This set is only available at the Temptation Duty Free shop at Hong Kong airport, so if you’re interested make sure your future travel plans feature a visit to that location!
