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.
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!
