My Hong Kong Beauty Haul is here!!! Sorry to post this so late. I’ve been sorting out my life on how to use my time effectively and happily; that is by realizing on to let go of the things that didn’t work out for you, bravely taking new chances and opportunities, do more on what makes your soul on fire and just keep learning. When its all over guys, I will commit myself to blog and vlog more actively. 🙂
Oookay, so I bought some new good stuff that I bought in Hong Kong that I wanna share with you guys. Lets scroll down…
Hatomugi Skin Conditioner
I gotta say, I freakin’ looooove this multi-purpose skin conditioner. I used to skip toner on my beauty routine ’cause I used to stupidly think that it is not that important to use toner. Nope! I was totally wrong about that. I just started using toner for almost a year now and it literally changed my whole beauty routine. I can’t stress enough how essential it is to use toner if you have oily or acne-prone skin. It is very helpful to soothe your skin, remove oil and traces of dirt and make up if you like to wear heavy make up on your daily basis. It makes your face cleaner when your cleanser fails to remove all your make up. A lot of beauty reviewers been raving about this product so I gave it a try.
I actually have a sensitive skin, but this product didn’t give me pimples (which is a super good thing!). It didn’t feel sticky on my face, it removes dirt and moisturizes my face. Me likey! Not to mention that it is very affordable. Oh! And you can use this as a toner, a face mask or a face mist. You can get this at most Sasa stores in Hong Kong (don’t worry, they’re literally everywhere).
If you wanna use it as a face mask, you can buy sheet masks as well. I found them in some random stores in Hong Kong but I believe Muji has ’em. Is it just me or does it look like a candy?
When I bought the sheet masks, they gave me a little container and a tiny little bowl that you can bring for travel. Please pardon my embarrassing nail polish. lol. I like to put the “candy” into the tiny bowl.
and pour it with lots and lots of Hatomugi.
Voila! A face mask is ready to be used. If you would like to use it as a face mist, buy a tiny spray bottle and fill it with Hatomugi, spray it to your face as often as you like for extra moisturizer during the day and to refresh yourself when you have a long day.
KIKO Lip Palette (shade #02)
Some of you may know that I’m obsessed with lip products. I literally can’t leave the house without wearing a lipstick. Sorry not sorry. I used to buy KIKO when I lived in Paris. They got some good quality products with a relatively cheap price. I haven’t seen KIKO anywhere when I travel that I almost forgotten that this brand even existed. Surprisingly enough, I found KIKO store in Hong Kong. It took me just one glance to make me fall in love with the lip palette. I mean, look at those colors. This would be a perfect travel companion so that I don’t have to bring a lot of lipsticks with me. However, too bad that the lip palette is not very pigmented. and personally, I would like it better if they provide a thicker lip brush. But, with the price and all the colors I got, this purchase is not a bad idea, at all.
Innisfree Auto Eyebrow Pencil (shade Rose Brown)
Eyebrows, eyebrows, and eyebrows. One of my make up routine that i can’t omit. When I was lazy, I could skip foundation or blush or eye liner; but not eyebrows! Before I met this awesome Innisfree eyebrow pencil, I used to use Anastasia Beverly Hills for my eye brows. Anastasia’s eyebrow pencil was amazeberries don’t get me wrong. But they’re hella expensive. Therefore, I was looking for other alternatives for my eyebrows and got this baby. It looks like dark brown in the photo but it actually has a nice rose brown color, which matches with my hair color. The only downfall about this product compare to Anastasia’s is that Anastasia has a rougher eyebrow brush, which makes it easier to comb and blend with.
Miniso Nail Polish
Look at these aesthetically pleasing nail polish. I simply love their super girly packaging that I can use for photo props. lol. You can find these at Miniso Hong Kong. If I’m not mistaken, it’s only HKD 15 for 2!
Eye Lid Glue from Etude House and Eye Lid Tape from Sasa
If you’re the lucky one to have big rounded eyes with double eyelids, then you may want to skip this one. But if you’re like me who have “sipit” eyes, then seriously this products will help you achieve that wide-awake eyes. To be honest, I haven’t got to try the Eyelid glue, so I’ll keep you updated when I’ve tried it. I think the eyelid glue can give that natural double eyelid but takes more time to use it. Whereas it only takes seconds to use the eyelid tape, but if you look closely, you can still see there’s something sticking on your eyelid (a proper concealer will do the trick though). For me, I still prefer the traditional eyelid tape for my everyday make up.
3CE Cream Blusher
I personally like cream blusher because it lasts longer than powder blush. Cream blusher is perfect if you live in a humid and tropical country like Indonesia. If you like to pat your face with tissues or blotting paper to remove some oil, I highly recommend you to use cream blusher as it’ll stay all day.
I’m not sure if you can see it in the photo, but it gives me a really nice peachy color. I’ve been using less contouring and more blusher on my face lately, and this peachy shade will help me achieve that ‘Korean’ make up look. 🙂
3CE X Style Nanda Matte Lipstick
Last but not least, another lip product from 3CE is this nude brown color. I like to use this color when I use bold and dark colors on my eyes, as I don’t like to make my make up feel “heavy” so I like to balance out with this nude brown lipstick.
So that’s it, guys! For those of you who wanna go to Hong Kong, hope this beauty haul helps you in finding what you’re looking for. And if you have any beauty product recommendation, please do let me know on the comment section below. I’d be happy to try and make a review of it.
See you on my next post!
