Happy Monday beauties! In my giveaway (which is still running for a few days here) I asked you what you wanted to see more of on the blog and lots of you said hauls! So here’s the damage I did while in Madrid for a work trip. Some of my favorite makeup brands are not sold in The Netherlands and I take advantage every time I can to visit the shops and pick up some goodies.
First I went to the huge Kiko Cosmetics at the Gran Via in Madrid. The shop looked just stunning and glamorous (sorry, wasn’t allowed to take photos there) and the displays were just too much to resist. I picked up a few bits from the new Daring Game LE which I reviewed last here, and some things from the permanent line. I went a bit overboard with liners, getting the Supercolor Liquid Eyeliner in 112 Crocodile Green (6.90€ here), Colored Kajal in 114 Plum (4.20€ here) and the Smart Eye Pencil in 800 Golden Silk (2.50€ here). so now I’m set with colored liners, for Kiko. As usual then the nail polish stand sucked me in with all the pretty colors and I managed to constrain myself to only two shades perfect for the coming colder months, the Nail Lacquers (3.90€ here) in 320 Beige Mauve, a neutral mauvy-grey, and 497 Pearly Indian Violet, a burgundy-purple with blue and gold glitter, very unique! Finally from the sale area with the old limited editions, I got the Colour Shock Long Lasting Cream Eyeshadow (3.00€ here) in 108 Metallic Blue, which I plan on using both as a smokey eye base and as gel eyeliner. I came out very happy and with a great bag full of goodies!

So these were the results of my beauty shopping during my trip to Madrid, which I squeezed while sightseeing. I leave you with some more pics from the trip.
Hope you enjoyed the haul. What are your favorite brands to pick up while abroad?
