The Duty Free Haul-Manchester airport

The last haul post of my UK/US trip haul series!!

Here is what I picked up at Manchester airport before flying back to Dubai in April.

Issey Miyake Absolue

Stylish packaging at Jo Malone

English Pear and Fressia

Issey Mikaye is my all time favourite perfume and quite often they bring out special editions and I always snap them up.  This new gold bottle caught my attention and found its way into my shopping basket!

I was also looking for a new light and fresh day perfume for spring and this Jo Malone English Pear and Freesia seemed to fit the bill perfectly (although I just looked on the Jo Malone website and they liken this perfume to an Autumn walk through an orchard so I am not very seasonally appropriate!)

Mac Paint Pots and Select cover up

From Mac I picked up two of the Paint Pots, in Bare Study and Lets Skate.  I haven't used these before but read that they are really good as an eyeshadow base as well as standalone eyeshadow.  I also picked up a Select cover up and a 168 angled contour brush which I use to apply my blusher.  I also like the fact it's bristles are cream coloured so that I can see it's properly clean when I wash it.

Swatches-Lets Skate (pale pink with pearl) and Bare Study (Beige with gold pearl)

Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara and 168 angled contour brush from Mac

I recently bought this Dior mascara for my best friend as part of her birthday present and she told me it was amazing-her favourite mascara ever-and Danielle knows her mascara trust me!  So I couldn't resist picking one up for myself at duty free.

Finally I picked up the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye.  I have been looking for a more moisturising night time eye cream and have read some great reviews about this one.
