Estée Lauder, in partnership with China Duty Free Group (CDFG) has started the holiday season by returning to CDF’s Haitang Bay Sanya complex for a celebration on 14 December 2019.

Yang Mi, Global Spokesmodel, Estée Lauder was among those who attended the unveiling of The Estée Lauder Holiday Exhibition which is open until 30 December.

Over 1,000 shoppers, influencers, VIPs and press enjoyed the festivities which began on the Level 1 atrium and extended throughout the 1,510sq ft Estée Lauder boutique.

Rafaella Cornaggia, Senior Vice President, Estée Lauder Travel Retail Worldwide said: “We are thrilled to return this year and partner with China Duty Free to bring an enhanced festive retail experience to shoppers here in Haitang Bay.

“As a brand, we challenged ourselves to give our every-growing consumer base an unforgettable holiday experience and a more engaging way to discover our product offerings. We are grateful for the continued support of Yang Mi and our partners at China Duty Free.”


Shoppers exploring the exhibition, which offers makeover services, spin-to-win games, customised photo opportunities and holiday make-up demonstrations were welcomed by Yang Mi.


The Estée Lauder Holiday Exhibition is open until 30 December 2019.

In addition to sharing her holiday travel beauty checklist, Yang Mi introduced three Estée Lauder exclusive sets — Advanced Night Repair Holiday Collection, Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Travel Collection and a Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick Trio offering three shades for the season. These are Rebellious Rose, Slow Burn and Persuasive. The limited edition sets are available until the end of February 2020.
