HUGE HK shopping haul ! / beauty & gadgets from Sasa + Innisfree + Watsons + Co.

Hello lovelies and beauty addicts !
This blog post might be interesting for those who will visit Asia and are thinking of buying lots of beauty products !
I did lots of research online prior to my HK trip and went shopping with a long list of TO-BUYS ~
I’m only going to list up all the beauty stuff and gadgets I bought so there will be NO REVIEW in this post .
I will definitely make lots of reviews about some products that I think are worth showing to you !
But if you are particularly interested in one product – make sure to comment below and tell me !
Actually can’t wait to make reviews to show you but my time is limited in these three months due to my bachelor thesis . . . x.x
Anyway ~ let’s start of with my
INNISFREE haul
I got this nice “Heritage Set” from Innisfree including three products I would have bought individually – but this set was really cheap !
330 HKD for all five products !
This is the widely known Super volcanic pore clay mask .

Said to be successful in minimizing the appearance of black heads !

Will try it out for sure ~

This Jeju volcanic pore cleansing foam I wouldn’t have bought if it wasn’t in the set .

Simply because I have not heard of it yet :D

I’ll be sure to give it a try !

This Green tea seed serum is said to work miracles to the skin !

The long days ( and nights ) for my architecture studies really drain me and I hope to look less tired with the help of this serum ~ Hope it will work !

This Green tea balancing skin ( moisturizer ) in combination with the serum is said to keep your skin looking fresh and balanced ~
Green Tea balancing lotion ( body ) – just like the other green tea products it smells really nice and decent .

I don’t like switching lotions ( I ‘ve only been using a baby lotion – since years and it always gives me soft skin hehe . . . ) but I’ll give this one a try .

Next :
faux eyelashes 
I got a few of them and was struggling not to buy more . . .
Because I like how it looks when using fake lashes . . .
BUT I AM A RETARD when it comes to using them on myself XD
Haha ~ . . .
I hope I’ll get better . . .  it would be a waste otherwise !
Got two of these ( accidentally ) ~

This series is promoted by one of my top favorite japanese models ( also a VIVI model ) !

I loooove her <3

This series eyelashes aren’t completely black but they are more like dark brown – mixed with strands of black lashes .

They look really natural this way !

These look really natural :)

Charming Kiss – I also got their eyelash glue because it looked just too small cute and handy to skip on it !

I wanted to give lower / bottom lashes a try so I thought these “natural” brown ones from Dolly Wink might be the right choice .

Hope I’m not wrong XD !

I had to get this one .

Dolly Wink‘s eyelash case .

Actually you could use any tray to store your eyelashes but it wasn’t that pricey .

Hehe ~

The next things I bought on mass are eyeliners and similar !
With similar I mean things like these :
Highlighter – actually this package had two different colors inside !

Silver and Gold .

Gold .

Gonna highlight my eyes ( face ) golden no thank you .

See ?

: D

This handy beauty products does three jobs :

There’s a brow pencil ( bottom left )

brow powder ( bottom right )

and brow brush ( top right ) .

I think that’s awesome and it really works well !

I saw this in a recommended list from a beauty blogger and thought I should try this out :

The Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow from CLIO has two functions .

One is to draw eyebrows with a decent color that is said to last for days ( thus tattoo ) and

the other is a simple brow mascara ( I have never used any before :DDDD . . . ) !

Also got this as a special gift for buying two of these tattoo brow tints hehe ~
Here’s the list of
eyeliners
I got :
(You may notice – they are mostly DARK BROWN colored .
I think dark brown looks less harsh and little more natural .
But it depends on the quality to look not too fake brownish . )
Used this one right away – it draws extremely thin lines !

If you are accurate enough – it might be perfect !

Love it .

Bought two of these eyeliners from Wink Up simply because it is highly praised .

It’s a thicker eyeliner brush but last pretty good !

That’s the eyeliner above .
Not tried yet – from the same brand as the eyeliners I loved to use the last years : K-Palette .

This looks unusually cute compared to their usual very simple packaging haha . . .

Simple : I HAD TO BUY THIS .

One word : Sailor Moon .

Oh that’s two actually nvm ~

Not tested yet . Another K-Palette eyeliner with 0,1 mm precision .

I love these thin eyeliners ~

Next is :
wash & soaps
( after makeup products so to say :D )
This cleanser from Bifesta got recommended to my by a friend of mine .

I gave it a try and it’s awesome really . . . No oil – similar to the Micellar Makeup Remover from various brands but a little bit better .

This peeling gel aka gommage from DTC I got in expectation it would be similar to the CURE Japan peeling gel .

NOPE .

I guess nothing can keep up with the original .

SADLY I didn’t find the CURE peeling gel . . .

These eye remover wipes from SASA are better than expected .

Bought last minute in Macao when I forgot to bring any makeup remover I got this .

And it’s working pretty well !

This vibrating TONYMOLY cleansing brush gets all the pores . You might feel it or you don’t .

Like me haha XD

My rather small
Etude House haul :
I got a few of these and used up all of them except this one .

It’s not bad at all ! But a little too pricey . . .

But their smell . . . soon niceeeee ~

This one here does magic .

The Black Head Remover-X (set) from Etude House .

Used properly it really reduces the appearance of black heads !

Either this or the usage of Evian water for my skin as part of my skin routine worked miracles haha ~

This cute Rosy tint Lips from Etude House really works well !

I shall show you at another occasion / blog post haha ~

Next is :
masks
I didn’t buy many masks because they are way too heavy for my luggage .
But the few ones I did buy – are said to be great ~
My friend recommended this one to me .

Especially because she saw how I love the Milky girl !

It’s a milk sheet mask ~

Looks too cute <3

Hehe . . . how could I have said NO to this handsome face ?

Kim Soo Hyun is the endorsement partner of the korean brand BEYOND now – almost all their products have his face on them haha ~

I found this on the web and thought to give it a try .

It’s a very interesting products – supposed to whiten up the skin .

The famous Rice Scrub from Skin Food <3

Definitely one of my top favorite buys this journey !

ACTUALLY . . . almost half the asian products are whitening products . . .

That Milky mask might be one too without me ever knowing it . . .

I just noticed the Beyond sheet masks above really are whitening masks haha !

( They say brightening . )

But that mask doesn’t brighten / whiten up my skin ( gladly ) .

I already used it twice ~

Other makeup products I got :
This Banila Co. CC Cream is 

awesome .

I like how it really keeps my skin moisturized .

It’s kind of a tinted moisturizer while also evening out my skin tone and giving my skin a natural glow .

It’s said to be the BEST CC cream out there .

I’ve tested others so I must admit : I believe it is .

The pore primer powder from Banila Co.

I was searching for a powder that doesn’t look cakey at all when applied and reapplied during the day and here it is :

One of the best no-color powders I have ever owned !

I’ve been using the MAC Studio Concealer for years now but at times it gets a bit too cakey and dry when applied .

This other MAC concealer , the Pro Longwear concealer , is much smoother on the skin and easier to apply .

Also more hygienic :D But it’s a bit less covering .

This BB Foundation Lunch Box from
too cool for school
is more of a fantastic foundation than a BB Cream ~

There is also a concealer and a highlighter included with a mirror on top of the the “lunch box” <3

Awesomeee ~

One of my favorite buys !

This Primer from Banila Co. is said to work reaaaally really nice !

The classic one was the most recommended one but I got myself this instead :D Hope it works just as well ~

Didn’t try this one yet but it looked like a nice new handy brush for to-go .
These cute new puffs I bought in case I need to switch the puff from the Banila Co. powder .

They look cute don’t they haha ~

In Asia they have these handy cheap tools . Just look at the bottom end of these qtips .

They are made for makeup haha ~

Now it’s time for some NON-beauty products I got which are worth mentioning !
These are actually NOT tip-ex !

They are decorators for any letter / paper etc. ~

Too cute !

Rilakkuma ? 
Yes – of course <3 !
These sandwich cutters look too adorable to pass on them !
Hope they really work well !
This uber cute silicone mold can be used for making ice Rilakkumas or even chocolate Rilakkumas ~

I will try to make lovely chocolate Rilakkumas one day ! ! !

Got a few of these cases haha ~
Do you know this character ?

And if you do – you might be awesome .

I love this little girl – that was my idol about 15 years ago haha !

A new ( and hopefully longer lasting ) rosé golden watch from BERSHKA .

Why I never get expensive ones ? Because I break ALL watches .

And even a little amount of food :
You should try these ( and also Puccho’s other candies ) if you haven’t already !
These are like topping for rice .

I like to eat these with rice only as a meal ~

Full of flavor ~

But some may NOT like it . . .

This is a package of 20 satchets of similar rice topping .

Little did I know that each satchet had an individual print . . .

Well . . . that’s it !
This sure was a lot x.x . . . thanks for scrolling all the way down to here haha !
These are the products I wanted to show you haha ~
I hope this gives you a little inspiration on what to get on your next trip to Asia / China / Hong Kong !
( I managed to take some puris <3

But… That’s actually the lowest level of enhancement of the puricura machine I used lol )

lots ‘n’ lots of love ~

    • I got these at phone cases at some small random street vendors in Mong Kok – just saw them and had to buy them haha ~ They are not genuine phone cases so they were quite cheap but I bet u could get the original ones in Japan :D The Rilakkuma stuff I got from a store named 759 which imports stuff directly from Japan :3 <3
