Duty Free Beauty: MAC Trip Phase II Collection

Next time you find yourself in an airport, do yourself a favor and step inside the Duty Free shop. You’ll find exclusive palettes and sets you can’t get at your local Sephora or department store. I was like a kid in a candy store when I stepped in to the Duty Free shop in the Paris airport. 🙂

MAC’s Trip Phase II collection features exclusive eye, lip and combination palettes and is available exclusively in airports for a limited time.  The lip palettes will be available from April to June and the eye and combination palettes will be available from April to August.
