It’s a kind of Magic!!

MagicstripesTRS continues to fulfill their mission statement by providing the Travel Retail industry with innovative concepts, new ideas and a refreshing approach to sales by working in partnership with Tourvest UK Duty Free to launch their new product, “MAGICSTRIPES” on board all flight routes from July 2015.

MAGICSTRIPES offers invisible, immediate eyelid lifting – surgery free!

The dermatologically tested transparent strips make eyes look years younger in seconds when applied to clean skin. Extremely quick and simple to use, MAGICSTRIPES are available in Small and Medium sizes with enough for over a month’s daily use in each pack, essential for a fast fix to drooping eyelids (RRP £18 / TR RRP £15).



Studies show that eyelid surgery is on the rise and is the second most common surgical procedure in the UK after breast augmentation. Interestingly, eyelid surgery applies to both women and men with 15% more operations across both sexes carried out during 2013 than in 2012.

However, not all are brave enough to go under the knife, and Natalie Franz, top make-up artist in the fashion and music industry and founder of MAGICSTRIPES, says you can avoid surgery and the associated risks but achieve the same effects!

Natalie is no stranger to secret beauty tricks and for over 15 years has worked with celebrities including Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and The Black Eyed Peas. It was during a trip to Tokyo, looking for new inspirations and techniques that Natalie disovered this intriguing new product.

In Asia, large, round eyes are seen as an ideal of beauty and women there use to it to lift their eyelids and thus to zoom the eye optically.

Out of curiosity, Natalie immediately tried the MAGICSTRIPES and was amazed by the effect. With a few easy steps she looked fresher and years younger! Since then she has been using them daily and also uses them for clients during photo shoots, fashion and stage shows and decided to introduce them to the European market.

Nigel Bennett says “We are thrilled to have been selected by Natalie Franz to develop this exciting and innovative brand within travel retail and build on their early success with key retailers to include Harvey Nichols and Selfridges. We feel the brand has great sales potential in all travel retail channels and with superb compact and slim line packaging this will enable airlines in particular to increase spend per head without compromising on valuable cart space.”
