One of my favorite parts during my trip to Hong Kong was meeting Jennifer of lifeandlensofbeauty. It was my first time meeting a fellow blogger from abroad, so to tell you I was psyched would be an understatement. We met up in the afternoon, but only had 2 hours to chat and shop together so we pretty much stuck to my shopping list. Jenn helped me get some stuff from Faces, Lane Crawford and City Super. I loved shopping with a fellow blogger! It was so much fun enabling each other in person! LOL XD I'm already looking forward to shopping with her again next year! Hopefully we'll have more time to roam around the shops that time :)

pretty J asked to have a heart, so I gave her a big, pink one ;)
Jennifer is so sweet she came bearing cosmetic goodies!
Thank you Jenn! I'm wearing the NYX round lip gloss now. ^.^
now onto my cosmetic haul,
our first stop, JILL STUART! :)
I got 6 items from Jill Stuart: Makeup base, Smooth Silk N foundation refill + case, 2 eye jellies and the eyelash curler. The other stuff in the pic are GWP's.
next in my list was the Cle de Peau counter at Lane Crawford! I already hit pan on my Shu Uemura eye corrector so I was in the hunt for a new concealer. MUA recommended for us to try the Ochre shade, and it looked really promising in brightening and covering my dark circles so I got one.
MUA also gave us puny Cle de Peau foundation samples (bottom). Don't let that packaging fool you! :P
after that we went up to City Super to get some Dollywink and Canmake cosmetics.
lashes! I really wanted to try no.4 because the lash band is not as long as the other ones from the line, I just hate it when I have to cut lashes. I think its such a waste. I also got the lashes case, just because. *BIG BOW*
GWP foundation, 5 effects foundation in 03, gradation wink eyeshadow palette and concealer in 09 (for dark spots/acne scars)
Of course I wouldn't be able to resist getting a few items before I met-up with Jenn.
Some hair care and hair dyes from Vivo, a store similar to Watson's.
the pink range from Essential smells so good! I got a shampoo, conditioner and hair masks.
My HG hair dye, Liese aka Prettia bubble hair color
in Sweet Pink (got it to try a hint of red) and Marshmallow brown (my current hair color).
Kiss Me Heroine Make liquid eyeliner, mascaras, Dove foaming cleanser, 'Q-pot ish' chocolate falsies case. Majomajo nail polish and cream shadow, Gi & Gary falsies, Cyber colors concealer and screw brushes.
my loot from Joyce, Deborah Lippmann nail lacquers!
Happy Birthday, Bad Romance and Across The Universe. FINALLY! :D
I really tried to contain myself from buying too much cosmetics this time, thinking that I will be back next year helped a lot! I know you gals understand the feeling of being overwhelmed with so much prettifying things. I think the only area where I failed completely was with the foundations! I just cant resist the Jill Stuart and Canmake foundies! I can only justify those purchases by thinking I will save money on shipping if I buy it in Hong Kong. Yeah, poor justification. I KNOW! hahaha XD
That's it for now! I hope you liked the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!
Lovely Thursday to ya!
