With its cloud of dreamy designer perfumes and lipstick counters left, right and centre, the lure of Duty Free can be pretty difficult to resist.
You'd be forgiven for spending hours swatching and spritzing the shiniest new products only to be dragged away to the boarding lounge by your SO/BFF/mum (insert person as appropriate), but tax free = a bargain, making it the perfect place to re-stock your beauty cupboard.
And while it's not easy to sort the wheat from the chaff where thousands of hair, make-up and skincare products are concerned, we've done the hard work for you. Here are the duty free beauty products you shouldn't board your flight without bagging first.

A staple in many a make-up artist's arsenal, Bobbi Brown's Shimmer Brick lends skin an otherworldly radiance sans the gaudy, glittery finish. Simply swirl in your powder brush and deposit a dose of warmth wherever you want it. It also makes a stunning eye shadow when buffed over lids and into the crease.
Foundations can be all or nothing: barely there or cement-like - but this one has changed the game entirely. The two-in-one consistency means it is weightless enough for all-over coverage but mighty enough to tuck away even the darkest of circles and the angriest of red spots. If you haven't already, stockpile with abandon!
