7 BEAUTY BUYS YOU NEED TO PICK UP FROM HONG KONG

During my four months in Hong Kong, I obviously couldn't help myself from visiting Sasa and other makeup stores once in a while, which of course ended up with me bringing quite a few items back with me to Denmark. The things above are some of my favorite picks from Hong Kong, and also the bits that I would recommend anyone to get if you visit the territory.
Sheet masks are super popular in Asia, including Hong Kong. My favorites are the ones from Etude House, but I have in general just really enjoyed trying out different brands and formulas.
If you haven't tried the Cushion foundations or BB creams that the Asian market has to offer, then you're really missing out! Although I really love my tinted daydreams from Estée Lauder or Origins, the ones you can find in Asia are more than just tinted moisturisers. There's a BB cream or cushion foundation for any need, whether you got dry, dull, greasy or just normal skin. Only problem though is that the foundations are extremely light, so these would only work for my pale winter skin. Anyway, you should definitely still try them out!
Multipurpose products are incredibly popular in Asia. And above I'm showing you two of my favorites from Etude House and Tony Moly. What is so great about these pencils is that you can both use them for your lips, cheeks, eyes, even your eyebrows if the color matches. Basically we're dealing with some really great products here that you can use for anything you like.
While in Hong Kong I absolutely fell in love with the Korean brand Etude House, and especially their Soft Touch Auto Lipliner. This is hands down the best, most pigmented and creamy lipliner I've ever tried, and the price was only $3! So of course I had to buy the whole range, which unfortunately only consists of 5 colors. Seriously, if you ever enter an Etude House, make sure to get these lipliners.
That green thing in the upper right corner might not look beauty related at all, but it actually is. This is a Ying Yu roller or a jade facial roller. The healing properties from the jade and the deep massage of the face both tone the contours of the face as well as detoxifying and get rid of any puffiness. I really love this little tool so I'll probably dedicate a whole post for this in the future.
Finally, you of course need to try out the mascaras and liquid eyeliners that Asian brands have to offer. Most Asian mascaras are formulated with fibres and have a very small plastic wand, but after a little bit of practice it'll leave you with most beautiful long and separated lashes. Along with that, Asian brands have some pretty amazing liquid eyeliners. The one above is from Dolly Wink, which is said to be a quite great dupe for the Stila liquid eyeliner. Now, I don't know about that though, but this is a pretty darn great eyeliner!


Today I've been organising my little room at my parents' place and also been spending some time in the snow. I hope you've all enjoyed your Sunday!

  1. Sikke et godt indlæg! Jeg har været fascineret af koreansk/asiatisk hudpleje så længe - men det er jo en jungle at finde ud af herhjemme fra Danmark. Tror lige jeg skal tjekke dine anbefalinger ud! :-)

  3. Sikke nogle spændende produkter! Jeg er helt vild med ansigtsrullen - dén gad jeg godt nok at eje selv! Synes det er sjovt så stor forskel der faktisk er i Asien på deres hudplejerutiner. Det indtryk jeg fik i Singapores gader og stræder var at ikke alle gad at gå op i hudpleje og mange havde faktisk meget uren hud eller akne. Ret vildt at der så i Hong Kong bare er et kæmpe marked for sjove/skøre hudplejeprodukter :) Fortryder mere og mere jeg ikke kom forbi altså ;)
