Austria Shopping Haul

If you follow me on twitter, you might already know that I jumped - ok, drived - across our northern border on Friday and did a bit of shopping in Austria. I got tons of home stuff at Ikea, so the only thing still missing in my re-decorated bedoom is a white stand alone mirror. I saw the perfect one there, but it was unfortunately already sold out. However, I'm still satisfied with my Ikea purchase, because I got a new rug, new bedding, a bed cover, and a bunch of decorative pillows. I really want two more cushions to complete the look, though - glittery ones like these would be perfect! 

Apart from Ikea, I also visited to the shopping center called Shoppingcity Seiersberg. I first went to H&M where I got some clothes - I'm going to show them to you in one of my future outfit of the day posts - and this gorgeous necklace. H&M has been putting out some really great statement necklaces lately, have you noticed?

My next two stops were Müller and Parfümerie Douglas. I wasn't expecting to get anything special from there because we have those stores in my country too, but oh was I surprised! It turned out that they sell quite a lot of brands that are not avaliable in my country. You should have seen my shocked face when my sister discovered Butter London and Essie stands! I almost died from happiness. And the whole shopping experience was a lot better than in Slovenia as well. When I visit Müller in my country and go to the expensive make-up stands, the sales assistants are always standing right next to me and looking at me like I'm going to steal something, so I feel really uncomfortable shopping there.  To be honest, I never really swatch and buy expensive make-up in my country for that reason. I tend to save this for my trips abroad...






The first two things I've picked up in Müller are these two lipsticks. The first one is from Rimmel, a brand that is not sold in my country. I've heard a lot of great things about the Rimmel's Kate Moss lipstick collection, and the swatches of the lipsticks indeed looked and felt fabulous, but I decided not to get any because the color selection was very poor. They only had three shades left - one of them was peachy, which doesn't suit my skintone, and the other two were really similar to the colors I already have. However, I did spot another Rimmel lipstick in the shade 'Cutting Edge' from their lasting finish collection. I decided that it would come home with me before I even swatched it. I mean, it's dark purple! I've been wanting to get this shade since the beginning of fall. 

The second lipstick is, as you can see, from L'Oreal. I'm in love with their Caresse collection, so it was only a matter of time before I was going to pick up another shade. I've been buying some really bold colours lately, but this time, I went for a soft neutral pink shade - 'Tempting Lilac'. I've tried it on my lips a few days ago and I really love it! I'll be showing you swatches and writing reviews of all these beauty stuff I've bought, but if you want to see the review and the swatches of the L'Oreal Caresse shades I already own, you can check out this post



The first big surprise of the day were definitely Maybelline's Color Tattoo cream eyeshadows. Even though we have Maybelline in my country, we never got the Color Tattoos, so I was really happy to see them there. I swatched a few of them and eventually decided to pick up 'On and on Bronze'. 

When I came home, I also discovered a perfume sample in one of my bags. I wasn't even aware that it was given to me, haha. It actually smells quite good! Strong, but good. Speaking about perfumes, I took a smell of the Taylor Swift's perfume and I LOVE IT! I like it even better than the Dior one I've mentioned in my recent wishlist post.

And now the most fabulous finds of the day! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that they sell these two brands. I finally got the Butter London's Lovely Jubbly, which I've been wanting really bad for months, and Essie's Chinchilly. This is my first Essie nail polish, so I couldn't be more excited to try it out. If I like it, I'll definitely be buying tones of other shades when I go to London. 




Some other stuff that I've also bought are the Blackberry bath bomb from Lush, Ikea's 'Tindra' candle and 'Winter Berries' candle by Glade. All of these products smell super delicious - kind of like my favorite tea. :P



Now these last three products are actually some of my sister's buys, but because I'll definitely be trying them out and probably also doing reviews on them, I decided to share them in this haul as well. I have a feeling that I'll be stealing borrowing her Butter London 'Rosie Lee' nail polish quite frequently, hehe. And the Essence's 'Hot Fruit Punch' doesn't look bad either...

I wasn't aware that Catrice came out with the palettes, but the Paris one that my sister decided to get looks very lovely! I can't wait to try out the eyeshadows. I might even go to the store and get one for myself.

Jeez, that was a long post, wasn't it? Congratulations if you have made it until the end. I didn't expect for it to get so long and rambly, sorry! I sometimes feel like filming youtube videos instead of writing these haul-type posts would be much better. I don't know. Maybe some day... :)

  2. Vau, nisem vedela, da imajo toliko izdelkov, ki jih pri nas videvamo samo na spletu.
    Jaz sicer ne hodim v Avstrijo, ker je daleč od osrčja Slovenije (lol), ampak všeč so mi takšni posti, da vem, kaj lahko pričakujem, ko se enkrat odpravim. :)

    Pa mene prav nič ne moti malo več kramljanja. Rada preberem in pogledam tvoje objave. :)

  3. I always buy candles when I go to Ikea lol and in my country the sales assistants also stare at you while you're trying to see if you like something, it's very annoying :/

  4. Super nakup! :) Nič ni dolg post, za nakupe sploh ne mora biti krajši:)
    Točno tako kot si opisala. Vedno stojijo na koncu vrste in ti gledajo pod prste. če ne svetovalke/prodajalke pa varnostnik. Js ponavad sm rečem, da samo gledam ali da že vem, kaj bom vzela :D
    Verižica je zlo lepa in lakci. Tut js nimam še nobenga od Essie.. kaj šele od Butter London.:)

  11. Punca, samo super nakupi. Ta verižica mi je prelepa. Ko sem bila nazanje v Gradcu, sem jo iskala, pa je niso več imela.
    Butter London laki so mi prelepi, ampak cena je žal pretirana.
    Škoda, da jaz nisem nazadnje v Gradcu našla Color Tattoo senčk, ker bi si ziher kakšno privoščila, baje so odlična. Swatch mogoče? :)
