One of my fave beauty shopping places in HK are the Lane Crawford stores (located at IFC mall, Times Square and Harbour City). Here's a quick update on what I bought the last few days. (not all mine, a couple are gifts etc).
I stocked up on my fave Shu Uemura Farfarllina lashes (SGD$20 a pair here, compared to at least SGD$40 in Singapore). Bought 2 pairs for myself. These lashes are made beautifully and lasts for years.
I also bought the Shu Uemura brow fix (Ash Brown) which matches my brow pencil in 09 Seal Brown. Love love love this! I think I might buy a backup..
At Giorgio Armani, I bought the new Lip Maestro in 400 - click here for Temptalia's swatch and comparison to her HG red lippy, Chanel Rouge Allure Lacque in Dragon. I swatched all the shades in this entry here.
This is very lightly applied.<p>
Helped my friend to purchase the GA Holiday Palette 01 since the collection is not launched in SG at all. The face powder is really beautiful, and comes with a glittery overspray. This is HKD650.
Then we went to Lane Crawford at Times Square, and spent more time at the Tom Ford counter - it is very small, unlike the luxe and spacious one we have at Tangs Orchard.
Prices of Tom Ford in HK is much cheaper than in Singapore.
For example - the lipsticks are about $66 here, compared to $73 in Singapore.
The perfume are at least S$30 cheaper in Hong Kong. Def can buy Tom Ford in Hong Kong.
I ended up with 2 lipsticks - both black orchid. One for me, one for my friend. The BA told me the shade is being discontinued, and they have only 2 left in stock. Why why why! It is a very deepened black berry shade.
The beautiful and very eloquent BA who attended to me, Susan also gave me a couple of samples to try out - the Traceless foundation (in an Asian Exclusive shade) and Santal Blush perfume.
Here's a random pic of me while I went out for dinner last night - at a street shop... yummy and cheap!
I also bought 3 of the YSL Primiere Neige topcoats (this is not brought into the Singapore market) - one for me, one for my friend, and one for Joey.
I bought more little random goodies today... shall share soon!
Heading out for dinner now!
