Hong Kong beauty products haul

With advice from 5 lovely beauty bloggers, I armed myself with a lengthy shopping list to Hong Kong. I came back with the following.

  • Bobbi Brown corrector, creamy concealer kit and concealer blending brush
  • Dior Addict lipstick in Dior Kiss
  • Lancôme Teint Miracle
  • MAC Prep+Prime Lip
  • Gosh Cosmetics Velvet Touch eyeliners (x4, 3 in photo) and Soft 'n Shine lip balms (x2)
I also bought this after I read about it in a HK magazine.


Inside there are 3 eyeshadows, 2 brushes, an eyeliner and a mascara.


The back of the packaging gives a step-by-step instructions to achieve a perfect smoky eye.


It was a complete impulse buy and I'm not sure if I should keep it...

I forgot to take photos of 2 Asian-based products - SKIN79 Super+ BB Cream and L'Oréal Paris White Perfect Micro-Vibration 3-in-1 Eye Brightener.

I haven't used most of the products because I wanted to take blog photos first!

I've tried the Lancôme foundation, BB cream, and Gosh eyeliner and lip balm so far and I'm pretty happy with them. In this post I'm going to do a quick review of one of the Gosh lip balms, #32 Angel (the other colour I bought is #40 Irony, a bright orange).

The Gosh Soft 'n Shine lip balm comes in a narrow tube.


There's a swatch. It is a soft pink with shimmer.


I took 2 photos of my lips wearing the lip balm, one with flash and one without (with some sunlight streaming in), as you can see the colour looks quite different. The colour IRL is somewhere between the two. I obviously need to work on how to take these photos!



It's easy to apply, pretty moisturising with reasonable wear considering it is a lip balm. I think this is a good dupe of Clinique's Chubby Sticks. It is not that much cheaper (Chubby Stick is $US17 and Gosh lip balm is $US13) but there are more colours available. Gosh Cosmetics is available at Watson's in Hong Kong (think Priceline) and I paid $HK98 (~$A12).

I don't know if I'll write posts about all the products, I'm not that good at being a beauty blogger! Which product(s) would you like to hear about?

  1. Really lemming the lancome foundation but can't justify getting it until I use up at least one of my other foundations :) Cant wait for your reviews :)
