French brand Bourjois has a number of duty-free kits, most popular on board airlines but also available at airport stores. This one, the Bourjois 3 Lipgloss Effet 3D set, is a trio of full-size lip glosses that, as the name suggests, create an effect of fuller lips when applied.
The set features three shades: Transparent Oniric (18), an invisible top coat; Rose Symphonie (20), a frosty pale pink with silver sparkles; and Rose Lyric (36), a deeper rosy shade also with fewer visible sparkles than the previous colour.
All feature a brush-style applicator and the sparkles aren’t gritty, which is a bonus.
I’m afraid I don’t know how much this set retails for as I got mine as a gift. These usually carry a saving of at least 15% compared with high-street prices though, so it should be a good deal if you like all colours.

Bourjois isn’t a brand that’s widely available outside of Europe, and in duty-free it is most common on board airlines around the world – as such, its travel-exclusive products tend to be handy sets that offer savings against European domestic markets and are easy to pack on the inflight cart.
The Bourjois Sun Glow Essential set is one of those: it comes with the brand’shighly-rated Délices de Poudre bronzing powder, a kabuki brush, what looks like a cool pink Little Round Pot blush (I don’t know the shade, sorry!) and a tube of Effet 3D lip gloss in shade 01 (which I *think* is Rose Pacific). The box also comes with a mini Black & Gold reflections eyeliner.
I found this set listed in Air Arabia’s inflight duty-free catalogue for $39, but on board UK carriers I would imagine it would be cheaper as each of the three products you are officially paying for costs £6.99 (about $11.50) on the high street.
French brand Bourjois has launched a number of new sets exclusive to the inflight market this year, and this is one of them. The Bourjois 1001 Lashes Mascara set contains a tube of its 1001 Lashes mascara, which the supplier claims “multiplies the number of lashes with its innovative double-helix brush that reaches every single lash regardless of their length or location”, as well as a double-ended duo kohl with a white side to illumate the inner rim of eyes and a black tip to line and define the lash lines.
This should be available on board a number of airlines around the world, so if you are flying soon check your inflight catalogues!
There is always a decent saving on Bourjois sets against the UK domestic market, where the brand is considered a drugstore/low-end one, which makes these boxes good value for money.
Bourjois Paris has created two new sets for the spring/summer 2011 season that will be available exclusively on board airlines (mostly in Europe as far as I know), and since I have been away for a while I have decided to give you a sneak preview of what’s coming up!
The first of these is the Bourjois Smoky Essentials set, a gift box containing a Smoky Eyes trio eyeshadow in Mordoré Chic (03), a tube of Volume Glamour Ultra Black mascara and an Effet Smoky eyeliner pencil in Smoked Brown (71). In addition, the set also includes a free mini-lipgloss.
The set’s also boasts a 20% saving compared with high-street prices, which means the actual cost will vary according to each country’s prices. Sounds like a good deal, especially considering that Bourjois isn’t an expensive brand – at least not in the UK!
I will try to review it as soon as it becomes available, which should be early next year. Click on the image for a larger version.
