In the small cosmetics store that opened nearby Wiener Hofburg in spring 2015, you will find a wide range of more than 60 brands that offer anything a modern woman's heart desires and even labels that you'll desperately search for elsewhere in the city.” The former antique store has a nostalgia reminiscent of the Imperial & Royal times while the delightful garbs, custom-designed by Susanne Bisovsky for Kussmund, contribute their part. Labels such as Florence's “S.M. Novella” are available nowhere else in Vienna, just like US-American brand “Lipstick Queen”. The store aims for pure luxury - effective, sustainable and as natural as possible. Creation, production and ingredients are aimed to be organic, maybe even officially certified as in Austria's own “Edelweiß” or purely vegan as in “ananné” of Switzerland. A private room on the upper floor is available for exclusive beauty treatments – probably the most pleasant way to be introduced to all of these products. However, the regular workshops seem just as appealing, with special regards to decorative cosmetics. Make-Up artists Andrea & Nelly give small, valuable workshops to groups of four, showing how to highlight your best features. What's so special is that each participant gets to do it herself, so you'll really know how to when going back home. A lovely gift idea!
