Shopping in Hong Kong

Hello everyone ^_^/

September has been such an exciting month, filled with interesting and fun experiences. For this post I will talk about one of my favourite subjects, shopping. Hong Kong is a great place for shopping as it's full of shops and shopping malls with a variety of products for every pocket. In this post I will show you my Hong Kong haul and share with you my favourite places to shop in this vibrant city.

I will start with my Hong Kong haul.

As Asian cosmetic brands are impossible to find in Greece, I started saving up as soon as I found out about the trip and made some lists to be able to get the things I wanted. I shopped only for cosmetics as my time was quite limited so there was no time to browse around.
On the top left you can see my nail polish haul. Apart from the Anna Sui goodies (I loved the nail set with two glitters, a nail strengthener and a nail polish remover), I got some Deborah Lippmanns that I had my eye on for quite some time and a few cheaper nail polishes from brands like Sasa and TonyMoly (I am so in love with this brand right now that I am planning on writing a post just for TonyMoly products).
My favourite out of all the things I got has got to be the Anna Sui blush (you can see it in the far right photo in the middle row). The roses are so pretty and I don't think I will ever use it as I don't want to ruin them. I've been wanting to get this for quite some time and when I saw it up close, I couldn't resist.
I also stocked up on facemasks and various other drugstore products. If there is anything you find interesting, let me know and I will write about it in more detail.

So where to go when one wants to get cosmetics in Hong Kong? There are so many stores and huge variety.
For more high end brands like Anna Sui, Shu Uemura, NARS and Jill Stuart you need to head to SOGO, the famous Japanese department store. There are a few of them around the city, including one in Causeway Bay and one inside the Langham Place shopping mall.

If you want cheaper brands like Majolica Majorca, Kate, Heroine Make and My Beauty Diary head to Sasa which is like a local Sephora (but better XD). They also have their own brand cosmetics which are really nice. You can find Sasa stores everywhere.
For Japanese brands you can visit the local branch of Daiso that is called Living Well at the moment. Everything in the store costs 12 HK dollars.
Also in Harbour City you can find standalone beauty booths. Brands include Lush, Tony Moly, Laka and Dermalogica to name a few.

Have you ever been to Hong Kong dear readers? What is your favourite destination for shopping?

The Dragon goes to Hong Kong

Hello everyone ^_^/

As I mentioned in my previous post, in early September I went on a very exciting trip to one of my favourite locations in the world, Hong Kong. While packing my suitcase I was trying to decide what to do with my nails and since this was a business trip I decided to wear something that would bring me luck.

My nail polish of choice was Dragon from a england, a fabulous holographic green nail polish from the Legend collection.

Dragon is a symbol of luck and prosperity in Hong Kong and I can say it brought me luck too ^_^

I used two layers of dragon and then decided to add some nail stickers to add a dragon scale look to some of my nails. Topped everything with Seche Vite topcoat and my nails looked awesome for the whole trip.

Although my schedule was quite tight I managed to go around and see a bit of the city (and catch up with friends who live there).

Hong Kong is a beautiful vibrant city and there is so much to see and do. I had some time to make a brief visit to Disneyland and also admire the 100 Doraemons outside of Harbour City.

Of course I took some snaps of the food to share with you all.

I did a bit of shopping too but I will make another post with my Hong Kong haul and my favourite places to shop there.

Have you ever been to Hong Kong dear readers? What is your favourite travelling destination?
