Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eye Kit

without comments

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eye KitBobbi Brown fans, take heed! The brand has just announced a handy travel-exclusive set with all the tools to create a simple but elegant eye look.

The Long Wear Eye Kit comes with four items: a Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Sandy Gold, a Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Espresso (a perennial favourite), a duel-ended brush to apply both products and a practical 30ml bottle of Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover. The only thing missing is a makeup bag, but we’ll forgive Bobbi for that ommission.

I’ll update this post with pricing info as and when I have it. The kit is available from February at duty-free stores worldwide.

SK-II Pitera Passion kit

with one comment

High-end skincare brand SK-II only does duty-free exclusives at Singapore Changi airport, due to the passenger profile at the location (lots of Asians travelling through there) and its relationship with the beauty retailer at Changi. This year, the two companies have partnered to launch only their second exclusive product, and it’s a big one.

The SK-II  Pitera Passion kit features some of the brand’s best-selling products including a 250ml bottle of Facial Treatment Essence, a 80g pot of Skin Signature Cream, a 20g Facial Treatment Cleanser, a 20ml Facial Treatment Clear Lotion, a 15ml vial of Facial Treatment Repair C, one Signs Eye Mask, two Skin Signature 3D Redefining Masks and a limited-edition silk scarf.

Sounds great, doesn’t it? I hope you are sitting down though as the price for all of this is, understandably, quite steep: the kit retail for S$396 (about $300), a tidy sum. It is a good deal if you’re a fan of the brand, though, as SK-II products are individually quite expensive already.

Bourjois Smoky Essentials set

without comments

Bourjois Smoky Essentials setBourjois 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.

L’Occitane Paeonia Beauty Travel Set

without comments

French beauty brand L’Occitane has a tradition of launching great sets that are exclusive to duty-free shops and airlines (such as the best-selling Happy Hands Kit, which includes some of their customers’ favourite hand creams), and they are usually great value for money. The latest one, L’Occitane Paeonia Beauty Travel Set, is no exception.

This kit includes several products from the company’s new Peony range, including a 10ml roll-on of the eau de toilette, a 15ml scented lip balm “to protect tender lips” (very useful on long-haul flights!) and 75ml bottles of the shower cream and body milk. Notice that all products come in packaging smaller than 100ml to comply with current liquid security limits at airports – this way you are guaranteed to get your products through in your carry-on luggage if necessary.

L’Occitane’s Paeonia Beauty Travel Set retails for about $50 on board Singapore Airlines flights – it could be cheaper elsewhere.

Clarins Instant Light Kit

without comments

Clarins Instant Light KitPart of the Travel@Clarins range of duty-free exclusives, the Clarins Instant Light Kit includes a 30ml tube of the brand’s Instant Light Complexion Perfector in shade 00, a product that combines the effects of a primer and a highlighter to leave skin beautifully glowy; an Instant Light Perfecting Touch pen in shade 02, Clarins’ version of Touche Eclat or other similar highlighting pens; and a free 5ml sample pot of Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch, a silicon-based primer that compared well against the best available in the market and is great if your skin doesn’t have problems with ‘cones’.

I bought this set at London Gatwick airport, where Clarins has a dedicated travel-retail boutique, and while I don’t remember exactly how much I paid, I’m sure it was something around £25 (about $38 in today’s exchange rates) – a real bargain considering what you get in the kit.
