UK holiday and Haul

I'm back!!! *g* Did you miss me? I certainly missed you!

Thanks for the lovely comments, I love reading comments from you guys, it is the best part of this blog!

It was utterly beautiful, as always, especially in the Highlands, we spent three days at Portree on the Isle of Skye, the northest part of Scotland and two days in Edinburgh. It was a very non-beauty holiday. I was sick most of the time and almost everything I brought with me make up wise sat in the suitcase. And since my boyfriend likes me best without make up on, I wasn't wearing any. I was feeling very bad about that as someone who has a beauty inspired blog. lol

Some impressions:

Isn't that just unbelievable? I miss it already..

And now to the make up part *g* When we spent our last two days in Edinburgh I shopped and that's what I ended up with :-)

I bought two super cute travel sizes of the great Body Shop peppermint cooling foot spray and their camomile make up remover, you can't get these sizes in Austria.
Furthermore, I finally found a Jewellery tree who isn't a headless dress with a ton of metal sticking out.. and I went to Topshop, got myself a gorgeous ring and two of their make up brushes. I will review them as soon as tested.

I'm very happy with my Body Shop Shampoo's, but I couldn't resist two Aussie deep conditioners, one for coloured hair and one for long hair - fits both! :-) Aaand three of Urban Outfitters nail polishes, I wasn't planning on buying them, I was captured by the colours and had to have them.

I also went to Superdrug: Sleek had an offer: the two sided brush and a contour kit for 8 pounds, which I think is a good deal, so I took it, even if I am not that fond of two sided brushes, how store them properly without needing tons of space?.. I wanted to buy one of their new kajal liners, the big ones, but besides the fact they were all already used, I was rather disappointed by the quality..
I got two polishes and a glitter dust from Barry M, they have 3 for 2 at the moment and my first models own nail polish. :-)

Furthermore, I went to MAC with my empty containers and got myself a free lipstick, juhu!!! I love Back to Mac so much.. I took Superior - a dazzle finish rose tone from the fabulous felines collection.

And my new ring tree in action:
I need more rings.. *g*

For those waiting and wondering why there is nothing from Illamasqua - there is NOT ONE Illamasqua store in Edinburgh. What a disappointment.. :-( There is only one store in Glasgow and I didn't have time to drive there and my boyfriend would have killed me - he already waited once before that store for three hours.. lol

I hope you liked the post and I can't wait to read your comments.

hey lovely! glad you got back home safe :)

that's a nice haul you got there! I especially am excited to see swatches of the UO nail polishes. I wanted to order some online and resisted because I wasn't sure if they're worth the money. hmmmm.

I'm also curious about the topshop brushes. have you had a chance to try out their cream blushes and lipgloss? I am thinking about ordering some topshop make up but I'm not really sure what I want.

anyway.. let me know!

I hope you like uo nail my review :-)

I didn't try any of their make up, the displays were so messy and abused I didn't want to touch them gg and I wasn't that interested, I can't tell you about them therefor, sorry..

I'm gonna use the two brushes today, so I will be able to talk about them soon.

Thanks for always leaving comments, it means so much!
