It's Duty Free - OPI Polishes, Chloe Perfume and MAC {of course!}

12 December 2011

My sleep patterns are almost back to normal now and I'm getting used to being back home now. At first it felt quite strange, almost like a reverse culture shock. I guess I really had been away for a very long time! It's so lovely to see everyone I haven't seen in so long though. It's quite a change of pace from the busy hustle and bustle of Seoul but I think I could get used to it!

Coming through Duty Free a spot of shopping is always unavoidable for me. It's the lure of the discounted prices! I was so close to splashing out on a Miu Miu Vitello bag. It was in a hot pink colour which the sales assistant told me was a new colour. Perhaps that was just in a bid to sell to me but the 30% off that day made it very very tempting. I was already a little late for the flight by this point though and I couldn't make such a snap decision to buy. So I left empty handed. I really regret it now. I'm hoping they'll be another opportunity to get it at such a good price because I've been lusting after that bag for a very long time and we all know how I love pink!

Here are the goodies I picked up.

Chloe Perfume by Chloe. A very light, soft floral scent, very pretty...if a scent can be pretty??!

I can never avoid MAC. Yes, it's a bit of a problem! Eyebrows Pencil - 'Fling'. MAC Eyeshadow - 'Gleam' (A soft shimmery golden shade - perfect for a subtle day look)

My growing obsession, OPI Nail Polishes!
From left to right: 'Significant Other Color', 'Bubble Bath' (I heard it's the perfect nude shade, I'll do my nails with it soon and post the verdict) & 'Holy Pink Pagoda' (already used it on my toes,  it's a great bright bold coral/pink shade.

A very dolly mixture like pink nail polish from OPI - 'Mod About You'.

I'm very pleased with the purchases, I could have gone crazy with the OPI polish buying, there was a whole wall of colours. Somehow I found willpower I didn't really know I had!

Let me know what you think, do you like my buys? Hope Monday treats you well!

  20. Excellent buys hun! I LOVE the Mac eyeshadow Gleam! I'm actually wearing it right now, it's one of my favorites for a "natural"/going out running errands, type of day & look!

    Ive never tried those nail polishes before, they must be great though? I'm heading out soon, so maybe I'll have to stop and pick up a color for myself!

    Have a sparkling day, xoxo

  38. Love your DFS haul, Amelia! I wish I remembered to buy beauty products and fashion at DFS, but usually when I stumbled upon those stores, all I remembered getting (in humongous quantity) are chocolates and wine!
