Duty Free Benefit Haul

9:33:00 am


I want to start this by having a wee tiny word with myself  'stop buying things you do not need' okay with that over with I will explain, unlike my purchases from Mac (see what Mac I bought HERE) I did not want nor need any of these Benefit products it was simply impulse unnecessary buying because I had time to kill in the airport. With two out of the three I bought I am glad I had this moment of non spending control.
 
The first thing I picked up was Porefessional. After using up the free sample I recieved in June's Glamour Magazine I have been debating if I really wanted to repurchase because although I really love the smell, the way it feels when applying and the results using as a primer, it is quite pricey for a small tube.  Never the less as it was only £19.55 with nearly £4.00 off the normal retail price I decided to have it.  I doubt I will repurchase after this tube because I dont know if Im just using too much but it doesnt last very long.
 
The next two items are eyebrow related, since receiving a HD brows palette in July's Glossy Box (read the review here) I have gone eye brow mad and now will not leave the house without doing them.  I got the High Brow Glow pencil, it is more of a champagne pink than the orignal High Brow and I like the 'glow' it gives a lot more than the original, I feel it looks more natural and highlights my brow bone perfectly.  I expect this to last a long time as you only need a stroke each time but will definately repurchase.  This was around £11 I cant remember exactly.
 
Finally I have been looking for a brow setter to hold them in place one filling them in, so after using a clear mascara for a few weeks the Speed Brow was the perfect product for me. Its in a neutral shade,  is slightly thinner than the consistancy of mascara and holds my brows in place all day. The little mascara like wand is small making it easier to apply. I dont know how I possibly lived without this and will remain in my make up bag forever more. This was only £9.40 so Im delighted, cheaper than the HD brows setter.
 
I love a freebee, who doesnt!  So recieving samples of the skincare range was just an extra little treat.  I havent used them yet as I might add them to a samples giveaway in the future, would this be something you would like?
 




 
Thats everything I bought in Duty Free this time.
 
Have you got any bargains recently whilst on your travels?
 
Lots of love
