Edinburgh Haul

edinburgh mini haul with colab hourglass real techniquesEdinburgh is a truly magical city and I had a great time strolling though it’s medieval streets and soaking in the sights. I still managed to do a little beauty shopping on the side, so here is my mini haul.

I picked up three cans of my favorite new dry shampoo Colab, since it isn’t currently available in the Netherlands. I choose the normal sheer invisible formula in floral paris and classic London as well as a convenient handbag mini in fruity New York. edinburgh mini haul with real techniques


I also had a little rummage through Boots and picked up one of my favorite eye makeup removers (it was on sale, I truly cannot resist a bargain). I picked up two new Real Techniques sponges since my old one really needed replacing as well as another Makeup Revolution Redemption palette. I eventually settled in the neutral shades in Iconic 1, the same one I gifted my mom for Christmas.

The star of my little haul has to be the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette. There is no counter here, so I was thrilled to find a Space NK that carried Hourglass in Edinburgh. After some deliberation I picked the classic palette, so I can try three lovely shades. I cannot wait to start using this to see if it lives up to the hype, although I have to get over ruining the amazing pristine look of it.

A little mini haul, since I was travelling with hand luggage only and honestly was a little too busy seeing all the pretty sights of the city to spend much time shopping. I’ll do a little post on the city once I have sorted out my photos to show you just how lovely it was.

Edinburgh is echt een magische stad en ik heb echt genoten van het lopen door de middeleeuwse steegjes en het bekijken van alle attracties. Tussendoor heb ik een heel klein beetje gewinkeld, dus ik wilde even laten zien wat ik gekocht heb.

Ik nam drie bussen van mijn favoriete nieuwe droogshampoo Colab mee, omdat het op dit moment niet verkrijgbaar is in Nederland. Ik koos voor de normale onzichtbare formule in bloemig Parijs en klassiek London en een handig mini busje voor mijn handtas in fruitig New York.

Ik kon een rondje Boots natuurlijk niet overslaan en kocht een van mijn favoriete oog makeup reinigers (hij was in de aanbieding, ik kan een koopje altijd moeilijk weerstaan). Ik nam ook twee nieuwe Real Techniques sponsjes mee, want mijn oude is echt aan vervanging toe en nog een Makeup Revolution Redemption palette. Ik koos deze keer voor de neutrale Iconic 1, hetzelfde palet dat ik mijn moeder voor de kerst kado deed.

De onbetwiste ster is het Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette. Er is hier geen verkooppunt, dus ik was zo blij toen ik zag dat de Space NK in Edinburgh dit merk had. Ik koos na lang nadenken voor het klassieke palette, zodat ik drie mooie kleuren kan testen. Ik kan echt niet wachten om dit poeder te proberen om te zien of het echt zo goed is als iedereen zegt, maar het aanbreken van dit mooie palette word wel even slikken.

Echt een mini haul, want ik had enkel hand bagage bij me en was eigenlijk veel te druk met alle leuke dingen die er te doen waren om echt te shoppen. Ik zal al het moois van Edinburgh nog n keer met jullie delen als ik mijn fotos heb uitgezocht.

    Having spent 8 years of my life in Scotland, I know how beautiful the country is(and cold too). Also, sight seeing and shopping are popular in Edinburgh too. And, I hope you had a lovely time in Edinburgh and I can’t wait to see more of it pretty soon.

      It is such a magical place. You were so lucky to live there. Except for the weather but I was mostly lucky.
