I made a few beauty related purchases overseas, and I thought I’d break them into several posts, just so there isn’t too much of an overload…I may have bought a bit more than expected. Anyhoo, let us jump straight in!

What is it: Lancome Fly & Kiss Essential Make-Up Set.
Where: Purchased in Crete (duty free)
Product Details: The pack includes a Black Kohl Pencil, a mini Mascara Volume in Black, a mini Non Oily Instant Cleanser for Sensitive Eyes and a mini Juicy Tubes lip gloss in the shade Fraise.
My review: I have never purchased anything from Lancome before, and when I spotted this travel pack I thought it would be a great way to try out the products without committing to full sized items.
This pack includes three miniature sized products and one full sized product (the Black Khol Pencil). I have tried out all products except for the Black Khol Pencil.
As mentioned above, I am yet to try out the eye pencil, however I have tested it out on my hand. It did feel a bit harsh on my hand; it wasn’t as creamy as I expected. However, the pigmentation is very good and it also has a good staying power. I will try this out on my eyes and update my thoughts.

The mascara is great. It’s one of those mascaras that add volume whilst separating each lash. There is nothing worse than mascara that clumps all your lashes together to form one big lash! I liked how this mascara defined my eyes without being too dramatic. This is a great everyday mascara.
The Non Oily Instant Cleanser for Sensitive Eyes is a gentle and effective remover for eye makeup. I don’t normally wear much eye makeup, only mascara and occasionally some eye liner, and this cleanser did a wonderful job of removing it. I am not sure how this would go with removing heavy eye makeup though.
Lastly, the Juicy Tubes lip gloss. Years ago, I was gifted a set of mini Juicy Tubes and I remember loving them. The formula is non sticky and they last a pretty decent amount of time on the lips. This particular lip gloss is in the shade Fraise, which is a light watermelon colour with shimmer throughout. It adds a pretty wash of colour on the lips.
