Haul posts on blogs are like Justin Bieber songs – you either love it or hate it. For me, I’m not a Belieber but I enjoy reading haul posts because I am extremely nosey and love to know what products make people part with their hard-earned money. These posts also highlight that beauty bloggers don’t blog for “freebies” because they actually having a crazy addiction to beauty products – LOL! Here is my third and final instalment of my Hong Kong Haul (Part 1, Part2) with prices (if noted) in HKD and my JFP’s (Justification For Purchase).
Day 7 – Shopping in Mong Kok
2 x boxes of false lashes ($100) – JFP : I go through boxes of falsies easily because I don’t reuse them…because I am too lazy to wash them. I flick them off and leave them lying around the house…and sometimes, I mistake them for spider legs! LOL
Hada Labo Arbutin Whitening Lotion ($98) – JFP : As you read yesterday, I bought a Hitachi Hadacrie and it requires usage of toning lotions so what better excuse? Besides, this is another of Japan’s No.1 products – and I always fall for that line!
Liese Bubble Hair Colour in Chiffon Beige ($75) – JFP : I’ve been dying (pun intended!) to dye my hair and we all know it’s cheaper when it’s DIY.
Day 8 – Shopping in Fanling
Pond’s Flawless White Toner ($40) – JFP : As mentioned above, I need toners to make my Hitachi Hadacrie work and this was nice and cheap.
Za Cosmetics Foundation & Case Set ($115) – JFP : I’ve never tried Za products before so when I saw that the compact foundie came with a pretty pink metallic case, I knew I had to buy it. My other compact foundation is rapidly depleting.
Day 9 – Shopping in Sha Tin
Chinese books with two make-up books from Kevin (a Taiwanese make-up artist) ($98), a baking book ($98) and a couple of learn Chinese books ($150). – JFP : So I figured that I would learn Chinese and then be able to read the other books and have beautiful Asian make-up and yummy Chinese cakes to eat. We’ll see how that turns out!
Sasa is a beauty blogger’s dream place to own! I picked up 4 x Arezia mini nail polishes ($20), 2 x Naris Up Brow Pencils, 24-hour black eyeliners, brow stencil, nail clippers, lash glue, 2 x deodorant spray, blackhead masks, etc, etc. ($6??) – JFP : Anything which promises to beautify me and it’s getting in my shopping basket!
Day 10 – Shopping in Sham Shui Po
Domo bag ($60), Domo slippers ($60), Domo baggy ($20) and My Melody baggy ($20) – JFP : I went Domo crazy and they were just too adorable not to buy!
Day 11 – Shopping in Fanling, Tai Po and HKIA
Hello Kitty tokidoki figurine (free) – Redeemable from 7-11 with adequate spending stickers. Isn’t it gorgeous?!
Panasonic Rice Cooker SR-TMG10 ($499) – JFP : Our ex-rice cooker had a severely scratched base and I’m sure it’s not healthy eating from it. Why has this been included in my haul post? Because it’s pretty and pink and my Dad bought me it 🙂
Adidas Falcon Elite running trainers ($479) – JFP : It’s hot pink! And I am hoping it will encourage me to get fit. Although, I have a confession…it’s half a size too small for me! But it’s hot pink, yeah??!!!
Schick Quattro shaving blades – JFP : Gotta buy some refills for one of my fave gadgets!
2 x Revlon Lip Butters in Pink Truffle & Macaroon ($150) – JFP : Everyone on the beauty blogosphere has been raving about these babies so I had to see what the fuss was all about.
Chanel Rouge Allure in 74 Comedia ($230) – JFP : I have wanted a Chanel lippy since I started beauty blogging. I actually lusted after RAL Dragon for a long long time…but when the SA tried it on my lips, I was mortified as it was uggo on me! Anyway, I really shouldn’t have splurged but it’s so much cheaper than what I would have to pay if I bought it in Australia. But I am not sure about it as I didn’t research it well enough before making this spontaneous purchase at the Airport. And the annoying thing is that it didn’t come in a Chanel paper bag but a stupid airport plastic bag. Noooooooo!!!!
And we’re done with all the haulage! Phew! Normal posting should hopefully resume by
next week Friday with countless beauty reviews coming your way!
