Dior Addict Lip Experts Duo

with one comment

Dior Addict Lip Experts DuoHere’s another duty-free exclusive launched recently, this time on board airlines (at least I haven’t seen it at an airport yet, but will report back when I travel next!).

The Dior Addict Lip Experts Duo comes with two products (as the name indicates): Lip Maximizer,  described by the company as a lip care gloss containing collagen activ that can be used on its own or over lipstick; and Lip Glow balm, which is supposed to “instantly revive your natural lip colour”.

Dior claims this expert duo will result in “smoothed, replumped and naturally more luminous lips” – sounds good in theory! :)

As usual, prices vary according to the market of origin of each airline, but here are a couple of examples: on board Dutch carrier KLM the set costs €48 (about $62), while Cathay Pacific Airways charges $56 for it (remember that Hong Kong is essentially a duty-free territory).

Estée Lauder Pure Color Peony Blossom Lip Pots

without comments

Estée Lauder Pure Color Peony Blossom Lip PotsLike many other fans of beauty products out there, I am a sucker for packaging. Cute is good, and sometimes we may even go for looks over practicality despite our best judgement.

Lip products in pots are one of those “prettier than practical” sorts of things that I tend to avoid. Not everyone wants to carry a brush around with you to reapply the product during the day. However, I would probably cave if I saw these babies around as they are adorable.

The Estée Lauder Pure Color Peony Blossom Lip Pots set comes with lip colours in three shades (Wild Lilac, Pink Innocence and Brazen Berry) and the pots feature a cute floral peony design (hence the name). This limited-edition kit comes with applicator, which makes things slightly easier, and it is currently available in travel-retail outlets in the Asia/Pacific and Americas regions.

I haven’t had the chance to test it in real life yet, so if you have it let us know what you think! As usual, you can click on the picture to see a larger version.
