Surely this is the second part of my Hong Kong blog post about my hauls. How can anyone return from Hong Kong without hauling??? Haha, I found it such an awesome place for shopping, everywhere I go there's shopping malls, outlets, stores...not forgetting they have night markets too...Their shops are usually open till 12 am, I just can't stand the temptation! It was too overwhelming! So girls, make sure when you save and bring enough money for shopping! XDDD
These are the shopping experience that I wanted so much! Here are the lovelies I purchased during my HK trip. Enjoy!
Firstly, some stuffs by MAC:
How I love this #219 Pencil Brush. This is the 2nd MAC Full Size brush that I own. I love to use it to apply eyeshadow on the crease area and also on the lower lashline where I need precision and definition. I used it for blending too sometimes and it works amazingly!
A shimmery bronze eyeshadow will come handy when you want a create a simple day look. Here's MAC's Tempting eyeshadow, the perfect neutral e/s for Asians.
MAC's DSquared2 Collection was not available in Malaysia :( However I still managed to get hold of the very black eyeliner, Feline Kohl Power Eye Pencil from this collection in HK.
The journey to HK will not be complete without a visit to the first Asia Sephora. The store sold most of the beauty brands which are also available at any other beauty stores in HK. Nothing special but at least you can try out Sephora's own beauty line products in exchange.
Sephora's eyeliner with a smudger end. A special gift to my friend on her birthday.
Sephora's lip pencil in nude beigey-pinkish color. I love how it is used to define the lips. Nudes are a better choice because it can be used with any lip color.
There are two countries you can get hold of these Beauty Diary masks for a smaller sum of money than you got them online . I hauled them from ColorMix for only HKD52 per box! I heard you can get them even cheaper in Taiwan.
Box to the left is the Cherry Blossom Mask and to the right is the Mixed Berry Mask. Both of them are for dull, dehydrated skin, helps to even skintone and brightening. Mixed Berry has an extra tightening effect.
They make such good souvenirs for your girlfriends! I have soft spots for their beautiful packagings too :P
Stop by H&M stores at Langham Place and Central for the latest fashion. It was jammed packed with crowds when I was there. They were huge stores but I only managed to purchase a pair of simple black leggings because most of the clothings sold are for winter time. Since Malaysia is a tropical country with no winter :( I did not get anything from there.
Don't ever miss the ultimate outlet shopping experience at the Citigate Outlet in Tung Chung, Lantau Island. There are varieties of branded stores available selling at a very discounted price.
Esprit has one of the largest store in the outlet. I got a layered tank top whilst my bf bought a few pair of jeans which fitted him perfectly :)
Also got hold of Guess's long sleeved T with their signature shimmery beads design.
And finally, some random stuffs hauled from the streets of HK. This adorable pair of purple sandals were bought from the famous Ladies Market in Mong Kok.
This skirt is from Causeway Bay, another main shopping area in Hong Kong island.
That's it for my hauls from Hong Kong. Too much, too little or just nice? Anyways, they already burnt a huge hole in my pocket for that :P They are just for my satisfaction...Reviews on the beauty products are coming soon hopefully, so stay tuned!
