HUGE Heathrow Duty Free Haul

An EPIC Heathrow Duty Free haul from my recent trip to Singapore!


So guys, I have a wee confession to make... before our trip to Singapore I may or may not have dragged Ben out of bed an extra half hour earlier than needed so we could whizz our tushes on down to Heathrow for a spot of shopping in Duty Free, mean girlfriend or beauty addict? You decide! I absolutely love the whole airport experience before holiday because that's when everything feels real, like OMG WE'RE FINALLY GOING AND I'M SO EXCITED I'M GOING TO SPEND ALL OF THE MONEYZ IN DUTY FREE... or is that just me? Pretty sure I'm not alone here girls!

So, I thought I'd put a little post together in honour of the 30 minutes of sleep that Ben lost so I could get my paws on some new beauty bits, let's take a look at what I picked up at Heathrow World Duty Free!...



1.) *Bobbi Brown Lip Balm SPF 15 - the perfect travel companion for any flight/holiday as my lips always get so dry whilst flying and the added SPF is such a bonus!

2.)  *MAC Velvet Teddy - my all time favourite MAC lipstick in the world ever, the perfect nude/brown/pink for everyday wear!

3.) *Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Perfume - you're shocked aren't you?! I have spoken about this fragrance so much! It's my absolute go-to in the summer so I picked up a new bottle whilst in Duty Free!

4.) *Benefit Roller Lash Set - I'm the biggest Roller Lash fan girl and was so chuffed to find out this set which includes a travel mini was the same price as the full size mascara… winning! This mini is perfect for short haul trips and overnight stays!

5.) *Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet SPF 15 Foundation - I'd never actually tried a Chanel foundation before I picked this up, as i'm a huge velvet finish girl I thought I'd try it out and have been loving it so far! The coverage is great but it also feels lightweight so it's great for holiday, alas the SPF 15 bonus… whoo!

6.) *Loccitane Shea Butter Hand Cream - this hand cream was on offer at the till and the lovely sales assistant sold it to me in around 40 seconds (cheap date, I know!), I went for the Shea Butter scent as I'm a huge fan and I thought this was be a great in flight essential for my 13 hour flight, gulp!

7.) *MAC Lip Pencil in 'Soar' - I've been after this lip liner for so long so I was tres thrilled when they had it in stock! It's slightly darker than Velvet Teddy but it looks fab worn underneath!

8.) *NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint - I abso-bloody-lutely love this stuff! I'd already gone through one tube so decided to re-stock whilst in duty free - this skin tint is perfect for wearing on holiday as it's not too heavy!

9.) *MAC Relentlessly Red Lipsitck - I swatched this colour in MAC ages ago but never actually bought it and regretted it ever since… until I spotted it in Duty Free and decided to take the plunge and get it once and for all! Not sure it's left my lips since, best purchase ever!


Do you love Duty Free shopping as much as me? *please say you do! Have you picked up any fab treats recently from Duty Free? I'd love to know!

    LOVE a duty-free haul! Does the NARS skin tiny work for combination skin? I’m going to Barcelona next month and need something lightweight that can cope with the heat!

      Same, SO good isn’t it!? Yes it does love, my skin is oily/combination and I’ve been wearing this all Summer! Have an amazing time in Barca! x

    I recently got Bronze Goddess in Duty Free too – it’s a bit of a tradition haha. I can never resist a MAC lipstick either 🙂 I also got a Tom Ford one last time I was away. It was still over £30 but I managed to justify it because it was Duty Free!

    I am sure Ben didn’t mind you waking up him earlier so you can do a huge duty free shopping 🙂 I love wandering around duty free but the last I didn’t have time to check anything even though I had a huge list of the things I wanted to get from there. Velvet skin tint is one of my most used product of this summer, I love how good it is! Also relentlessly red is a stunning shade of red! x

    I love duty free, I tend to convince myself that it’s ok because I’m saving some money on what I’m buying haha!

    When did they start selling Nars in the Heathrow duty free? Have I been missing this the whole time!
