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.

Ellis Faas Make-Up Set

with 5 comments

I am excited about this post as this is the first time I have ever seen an Ellis Faas product in duty-free, and it is an exclusive set commissioned by Dutch airline KLM.

The Ellis Faas Make-Up Set, available inflight and for online pre-order on the Shop@KLM website, has been created by the make-up artist herself with a selection of three essential products from her range: Milky Lips L201, also known as Ellis Red and her signature colour; a grey-brown shade which I believe to be Creamy Eyes E104; and her Mascara E401 (black).

If each product was to be individually purchased the set would cost €74 (about $99 according to today’s rates), but KLM sells it for a bargainous €59 (about $79). And with the swan-decorated packaging, the kit looks so pretty I want to fly with KLM just to get it!

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.
