HK Beauty Haul

Monday, November 26, 2012

When a few days into my trip I realized that clothes were really not going to be my friend (shopping-wise) I decided that no one could blame me for a few beauty purchases. Most of these were picked up from ColorMix but a few I did manage to grab at a Sasa I visited before I left. Swatches will come later - it's cloudy in DC today - but so far I can happily say what I've used I love!

Face & Skin Care

 Bird's Nest Collagen Hydrating Mask / Herbal Anti-Acne Mask
(MBD store brand substitutes - they were super cheap so I said what the hell and tried them)

(I swear I saw BubzBeauty use something like this - I haven't tried this yet but supposedly you can use it to massage your face (and arms?) flushing out toxins and keeping everything toned. My friend was unimpressed but since it was cheap too I said screw it, lol)

Facial Cleaning Pad / The Face Shop Hair & Bath Scrub
(Again because of a BubzBeauty video, I wanted to get my friend this pink plastic face scrubby thing that's supposed to be super gentle and good for sensitive skin. After torturing a few sales associates who had no idea what I was talking about I settled on these two instead. I got the purple one for me too!)

 KOSE Q10 Eye Mask
(Who doesn't want nicely moisturized eyes? The package itself is actually missing because I'd already used a set by the time I took these pics, lol)

Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil
(I've used this for a while and love it. I saved $4 - $5 buying it HK so I was happy!)

INSETA World Spirit Make-up Removing Lotion
(I was actually going to purchase the Bioderma make-up remover (it looks exactly like this) because the Pixiwoo sisters have raved about it. The sales associate was quite insistent though that this Italian brand was better (and since it was cheaper I said ok, lol).)

10pk Lashes
(How could I not? I originally fell in love with a more 'expensive' set (USD$10) but decided to be frugal and pick up this set instead)

 Liole Bubi Bubi Mascara / The Face Shop Freshian Volumizing Mascara
(I love these! The Liole is a beautiful deep blue and the Face Shop really does a great job emphasizing my lashes. No I don't know what 'freshian' means, lol)

The Face Shop Make Me Star Waterpoof Gel Liner
(This one was all about the glitter ok? Don't judge me - and wait for the swatches!)

Kanebo Media Shiny Essence Lip in RS-04
(A pretty neutral shade w/ a bit of shine)

 Majolica Majorca Kiichigo Cream Blush
(This is a blush that looks like nail polish! It even sounds like it when you shake it. I bought this one because of the packaging gimmick but I have no regrets)

That's it! I hope to get swatches up soon but I hope you're not bored by my look into the Hong Kong beauty scene :)
