Hong Kong Haul...And Giveaway!

Tuesday, 2 December 2014



I returned to the UK with a suitcase full of weird and wonderful beauty products, most of which had been recommended to me by fellow beauty hunters - and some that were spurred on by that 'ohhhthisisjusttooocute!' voice inside my head...I'm sure you know the one! I just love the cuteness of Asian beauty products, with all the sparkles and bows - its the make up and skincare equivalent of a fluffy kitten. And who can say no to a fluffy kitten? I can't.

On my hit list whilst in the Far East were Dolly Wink Lashes. I'd heard a lot about how lightweight they are, with wispy natural looking styles, which appealed to me. In the UK I find I have to trim strip lashes as they are often too wide for my eye shape. Asian lashes tend to be smaller, and so usually fit my eye shape much better. I stocked up on three styles, plus a Dolly Wink tattoo eyeliner in brown, that claimed to last all day and is extremely pigmented.

 

 

I'm obsessed with fabric face masks, and they seemed to be ultra popular in Asia. I tried one of each variety from the 'So Beaute' range - with the exception of the particularly vom-inducing 'Placenta' variation. (ewww,eww,ew.)

My favourite so far has been the Green Tea mask. I love how the individual packaging will make them perfect to travel with. I also picked up a 'Blending Beauty Spoon' - a cute little spoonful of natural night cream with cocoa butter and lavender. You simply put the spoon shaped container into a sink of warm water for a couple of minutes, and then apply the warmed product to your skin before you sleep.

I also picked up a 'Belle Madame' Beauty Sponge, an Asian dupe for the Beauty Blender. I'd read a lot of reviews about this product in particular, and to my dismay I found that it was sold out in most stores. But, the beauty blogger and make-up tool obsessive in me wouldn't give up yet. I soldiered on, around Hong Kong, until I managed to track one down...


 

Actually, I managed to pick up two ;) And, as a little thank you to everybody who reads my blog so far - Im hosting an extra special giveaway of all the products I picked up on my trip! Most of these products are unavailable in the UK, so I thought it would be cute to offer a giveaway of products that you might not have come across before. Maybe you'll find some new favourites! Here's what will be included...
