A beauty extravagance

A few months ago we were on our way to the UK to celebrate two couples’ weddings.

We flew from Dubai’s new Al Maktoum Airport and as it hadn’t long been open there wasn’t much there! A Starbucks which pleased the Mr and a very small duty free shop. Needless to say, despite this, I found an entirely unnecessary item. Which I bought. Holiday fever means monopoly money right?

Well actually, it turned out to be one of the best things I’ve bought (just to put this into perspective I’m just talking beauty products now).

This palette is amazing – the most pigmented eye shadows I have ever used. As you can see the one I’ve used the most is the mocha with gold flecks and the pale lilac next to it.

Because of the consistency they also make great eyeliners if you slightly wet the brush – as tried with the aubergine colour in the corner.

So there you have it, sometimes impulse purchases are the best!
