One of my favourite parts about going on holiday has always been duty-free shopping - it's there when you've arrived ridiculously early to the airport and you need something to do for a few hours, and it's there to greet you when you've returned home and are possibly experiencing some post-holiday blues. I love the sparkly floors, the way everything gleams, the rows of perfectly lined-up shiny products, the incredible exclusives and discounts... yep, it pretty much turns me into Rebecca Bloomwood and I'm perfectly okay with that.
With that being said, when World Duty Free got in touch to see if I wanted to come along to their #JetSetTour at Heathrow Airport to celebrate their new beauty hall, I was of course totally game and couldn't wait for the big day. I have to say, walking into an airport and going through security (shoes off and all!) when you're not actually going on holiday felt slightly peculiar, but it also felt like an adventure and I was so excited to chat with the various brands and discover some new products.
It was such a fun day of girly chats, travel-themed cupcakes, fragrance consultations and much, much more - I truly loved it and it completely made up for the fact that I didn't actually buy anything on my last holiday to Italy, both in the airport on the way there and back or on the trip itself! My lovely friend Harry from Harry Makes It Up was also there doing makeovers and I fell head over heels in love with the blue liner she did on me using MAC Fluidline Gel Liner in 'Siahi' - it was conveniently included in our goodie bags and is a look I'll definitely be trying out myself. Thank you to World Duty Free for having us, we were truly spoilt and I kinda wanna book a trip just so I can come back!
To see everything else that was very kindly included in our goodie bags as well as the items I picked up myself, there's a High End Beauty Haul over on my channel now.
