WHATEVER WEDNESDAYS – Makeup Shopping in Hong Kong

Hi everyone,

Happy Chinese New Year! Hope you all celebrated and had a lovely vacation. We are back on track and have some exciting and new ideas for the blog, so watch this space in 2017.

I always get asked where to buy certain products in Hong Kong that are not readily available. There are two shops in Hong Kong that stock Kylie lip kits, Tarte, Sigma, Charlotte Tilbury, Real Techniques and as of recently Huda Beauty. The list goes on…

Also just to note – These shops don’t sell every single product of the makeup brands listed above, the stock is subject to change, so it’s best to follow their instagram account to see what’s available in advance.

(1) Dudes HK

They have an instagram page – dudes_hk and if you follow the account you get a discount on some of the products.

Address: 2/F, 51 Sharp Street East, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

Address 2: 3/F, 3 Cameron Road, Tsimshatsui, Hong Kong

If you want to order a certain product, you can whatsapp the store +852 67783269 and they will quote you a price if they are able to get the product in.

(2) daily.shopaholic

They have an instagram page – daily.shopaholic

Address: No. 600, B213-214 Checkercolor Ctma Centre, 1N Sai Yeung Choi Street South Mong Kok, Kowloon, Hong Kong

WHATEVER WEDNESDAYS – summer favourites

Hey guys!

Divya and I thought we would do a summer favourites of all our favourite makeup, fashion, skincare, music, whatever!

Divya:

Song of the Summer: Drake – One dance

Skincare: Kiehl’s Iris Extract Activating Essence Treatment –  Recently, I have reincorporated this product back into my daily routine and I forgot how much I loved it. I have followed the guidelines of applying the product twice a day. I found the best time to apply this product is straight out of the shower. My skin feels silky, smoother and I feel like my skin looks more youthful.

Lipliner – Bobbi Brown Lipliner in Pale Pink  – In the summer, I found myself reaching for a lipliner that goes on effortlessly and takes less than 30 seconds to apply. This colour is beautiful, a soft pink and something that looks natural.

Eyeshadow Palette – The new edition to my eyeshadow collection is the Zoeva Nude Spectrum Palette (see my post here!) I love this palette, I’ve been wearing this palette since I got it.

Playsuit – I picked up this gorgeous black Zara playsuit back in early June, and I’ve worn, and reworn this outfit over again. For a night out, for drinks with friends and just when I’m lazy and can’t figure out what to wear.

iPhone 6 case – Moshi iGlaze Armour This phone case is so beautiful and safeguards my phone from the occasional falls. I love the simplicity of the design and that it looks smart.

Perfume – My go to Summer scent is the Marc Jacobs Eau so Fresh , it’s a glorious scent in a pretty bottle. If you like a floral scent, and something not too sweet, then this is the fragrance for you.

Sasha:

Sandals – oasis: I have worn these shoes out! I think I have worn them every single day of this summer since the day I got them. Considering how much I’ve abused them and over used them, they’re in pretty good condition. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a comfortable and casual pair of sandals.

River island blush pink dress: this dress is such a life saver. Whenever I don’t know what to wear I wear this. It’s so casual, comfortable, flattering and fashionable all at the same time.

River island high heel shoes: these are amazing. I bought these at Selfridges shoe hall for £35 pounds, with a 5% discount on top. I think they look so beautiful and they were so inexpensive. Everyone needs these in their shoe

Benefit whatsapp highlighter: this highlighter has given me the most intense highlight all summer. I am so in love with how amazing this product  is. LOVE!

Maybelline  nudes pallet: this palette was so affordable! It has so many amazing colours and it’s so pigmented.

Drake – Controlla: I mean, need I say more? He is my all time favourite artist and my bae ❤ ❤ <3.

Hope you enjoyed it, please let us know your summer favourites!
