It Started As A Business Trip And Ended As A Beauty Trip
The ones who follow me on Twitter might have seen that I was in Hamburg last week Wednesday for my first real business trip. It was a great experience and even though I realized how much more I have to learn I think I did a good job.
One of the peaks was, that I had the possibility of hitting a few stores before we had to take our train back to Kopenhagen. The Alsterhaus was my first choice and it was by coincidence the closest store to the place where we had our meeting.
A little overview of what I bought can be seen above. And now in detail:
1. Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in 89 – Vision
I already have the number 82 – Epatante and when I saw that Chanel brought out new colors of this eyeshadow I had to had this one. By last week it was still not available in Denmark (and it is also cheaper in Hamburg) so I had to get it. I love the eyeshadows to draw an eyeliner line or to use it as a highlighter at the inner side of my eye.
2. Dior Vernis Brilliance Gloss in 178 – Cosmo
The nail polish comes from the new summer line, which was also still not available in Denmark at the time when I left. The Dior brushes are great (similar to Essie) but the quality is even besser than Essie’s (7 days chip free!!!).
3. Clinique All About Lips
A product I had been dying to test for ages. It is not available in Scandinavia (we have Clinique but apparently we do not get every product – the boyfriend loves the caffein roll stick for his eyes, which is also not available up here). I have only tried it 2-3 times since then. Not sure if and how much I like it. Review wanted?
4. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 Oil Free in Porcelain
Widely hyped in the blogger and You Tube community I just had to try it. And yes, as far as I can tell it is worth the money. And you know my love for tinted moisturizers. I decided on the oil free version as it is supposed to be better for sensitive skin. I am in love!
5. Various goodies
Hamburg is generous! I got a mini (but still quite big) size of the Chanel lip gloss in 166 – Amour. From Laura Mercier I got a pretty decent-sized foundation primer. And from Dior I got both a day creme and an eye cream from their Hydra Life Series. The day creme is tiny but eye cream you do not need that much so that size is also good.
