World Duty Free *Travel Exclusives* Ft Dior & Nars


The moment I posted a peak of this stunning palette on my IG, it instantly caused a stir and an influx of comments asking 'what is this?!'. To kindly put you all out of your misery, here it is in all it's glory. Introducing the DIOR Fashion Colour Palette which is actually a Travel Exclusive so the only way to get your hands on this is to go through World Duty Free, which means another excuse for a holiday surely?

I travel back and forth through airports a lot which means I shop at them a lot; they do hold some real hidden gems that are very different from just your average 'value pack of three mascaras'. They hold many a saving and uniqueness. I was kindly sent over this travel exclusive to share with you all from World Duty Free UK and I am in love. 

This DIOR Fashion Colour Palette (around £65/€74) was inspired by the Dior runway shows to create two makeup looks suited to each destination; one being a fresh every day look and the other an uber glamorous look. The casing alone is a work of art in itself, so let me show you .....

The glittery tweed fabric on the casing reminds me of a Dior boucle jacket and is simply stunning. It is wrapped in a velvet pouch which holds a mini foundation sponge and multi use brush that you can open up flat to use as an all over brush then fold it over for more precision. Dior sure know how to design a palette well. Even though the casing is plastic, it still feels super luxurious which is what the aim of the game is here, to make it portable.

Inside the DIOR Fashion Colour Palette there are two sections; one is a daytime/natural collective and the other an evening/glamour collective holding eye, lip and cheek shades that have all been featured on the runway. In the middle of the palette there is a DiorSkin Forever Compact Powder in Light Beige which is more suited to lighter skin tones like myself.

DAY LOOK (left) - 3 x eyeshadows with a matte/sparkly nude and pink/mauve shimmers, a Pink toned Dior Blush in Happy Cherry, a Dior Addict Gloss in Princess and a Lip colour in Rose Baiser. 

NIGHT LOOK (right) - 3 x eyeshadows with a champagne shimmer, a deep matte brown and a gold glitter, a golden coral blusher in Rose Cherie, a Dior Addict Gloss in Spring Ball and Balme in Diorette.

There was a little kick back from a couple of the eyeshadows and you need to build the lighter shades up to really intensify them but if you are a Dior makeup fan you shall know just how soft and blendable their eyeshadows are. It is also nice to see a real mix of matte, shimmer and glitter too in such a small range. The lips are all very sheer in colour but have a lovely balmy, hydrating feel.

I am not a big fan of Dior foundations as I am yet to find one that suits my skin as the popular Forever foundation was definitely not for me, but Dior eyeshadows and lip products always steal my heart as you shall see from my previous posts and IG feed. I am always inclined to buy into a limited edition palette as they are some one the best out there! I have however got my eyes firmly on the NEW BACKSTAGE collection; it looks absolutely incredible! (here).

Here is another close up of the night shadows under light bright light as it's so hard to capture just how beautiful and shimmery they are in real life and how much of a golden peach the blush is .... I mean, simply gorgeous!

I think you will agree that this palette is beautiful inside and out and a well put together travel palette that shall appeal to many of us. I love the GLAM side as the eye shades are all my kind of go-to shadows but I love the blush and lip shades on both sides too.

The palette is so light weight and sturdy as I have so many palettes that I would love to take away with me but they are just not portable being either too heavy or too delicate where you feel the slightest jolt would ruin it, but the Dior ticks all those boxes plus it has a decent sized mirror that is great for makeup touch up's on the go, so definitely a great handbag friendly item to travel with.

A worthwhile palette to look out for next time you travel through WDF as well as many other travel exclusives that you shall never find out side of the airport. I like the fact that it's exclusive as it makes it even more precious to own.

Another airport bonus was this cute Jetsetter Travel Brush Set from Nars (£40/€45) which contains a Blush brush, Eyeshadow brush and wide contour Eyeshadow brush in travel size.

Nars makeup brushes are gorgeous and not cheap so this is a great buy as you get three for the price of one regular sized blush brush! The smaller sizes fit nicely into your makeup bag so you can use them on the go and the quality is superb. Another one to keep your eyes out for as it's a mini must have!

I for one love to shop for beauty at the airport because as well as saving money, you really get some great exclusives if you have the time to really look around all the counters.

If you didn't know, World Duty Free UK run a 'Reserve and Collect Service' where you can reserve products in advance so they are ready waiting for you in store before your flight. You only pay on collection and you can even nominate someone else to collect your order for you (see more here); Genius.

One thing I think we all stock up on at airports is fragrance, mascara and foundation! I highly recommend trying any of the above mascaras from Benefit, ByTerry and Lancome (as all featured here on the blog and my Instagram). 

I love airport shopping (as you can tell) and am very grateful to WDF for gifting me these beautiful Limited Edition's because I speak genuinely as ever (never sponsored!) and think Duty Free has such a great selection of beauty today which is why I shop with them and spend my own money .... plus who doesn't love a saving. 


Do you love a travel exclusive?
