The moment you enter the IG International airport, you wish to buy everything possible. No matter how much I plan, it I always fall short of time in checking out things. Come on! There is just too much to window shop, buy or if nothing else just drool.
I generally prefer buying MAC products as they are never on sale and getting some discount from MAC is always welcome . I started with the MAC shop and opted for MAC Face and body foundation and MAC Pro long wear concealor as lipstick cost was more or less the same.
I got MAC Face and body and MAC Pro longwear concealor from MAC. Both the products together costed me around INR 2600. MAC Lipsticks were off around 880 or something.Falling Indian currency rate pinches the most at this point of time.I wish dollar is INR 40 when I go duty free shopping :
I didn’t buy much thinking there will be lot more things to buy at the KualaLumpur airport but unfortunately that was not the case. Although 1 Malaysian currency is around INR 19 but everything was overpriced in spite of being duty free. Airport has everything from Kiehls, Channel , Dior, Clinique , Bobi brown etc.There is Revlon, Maybelline and many other brands as well but they all are expensive there.
It’s always advisable to know the product price before going for the purchase.I almost ended up buying few Kiehl’s product which actually would have been a good loss to me if I would have not checked out few of the products price which I had idea about.After some comparing I figured out that it’s actually expensive even when duty free.
It’s better to buy few essential thing which have been in your wish list and which you think will not launch in India or may take some years to be launched.Products are just INR 200-300 higher its just that you expect them to be cheaper instead at least cheaper than what you get with taxes in India here.
You can try Guardian store there where you can find drugstore makeup on discount and all new range of your favourite cosmetics.
Coming back to India I treated myself with these new Lancome Rouge in Love Lipsticks which were of 1900 each here .I couldn’t resist buying them as if they were just calling me
Shade which I got are Coquelicot, MidNight rose and Ses bras.
Beauty isn’t?Ca’t wait to share my reviews/looks with these.
What are your duty free shopping tips ?
