The Beauty Edit | Hong Kong

Hong Kong is awash for beauty finds, and where global brands sit alongside lesser-known (and cutely packaged) Asian products. Places like Sasa and Bonjour are Hong Kong’s candy stores for beauty, and always worth nipping into to see what’s new… Taking a peek into my cosmetics collection, there are a few things I’ve repeatedly bought in Hong Kong over the years, and others brought along on my latest travels there (see: Travel Edit | Hong Kong).

The Beauty Edit Hong Kong

(Clockwise from top left)

Cleanser: BiodermaSensibio H20. Long are the days when you could only pick up a bottle of this micellar water in Parisian pharmacies. A quick swipe of this at the end of the day is the simplest (and gentlest) way to cleanse and remove make-up.

Lip Pencil: NarsDragon Girl. Matte works best in humid climes and the blue-toned cherry red of this Nars pencil is universally flattering. Wear alone or blot down for a softer, berry tint.

Travel Guide: Luxe City Guide, Hong Kong and Macau. Not a beauty product, but if you also like your travels well-polished, these pocket-sized city guides highlight the most opulent places to eat, stay, and shop.

Eyeliner: Bobbi BrownLong-wear Gel Eyeliner (Black Ink). Withstanding even height-of-summer humidity,  Bobbi Brown’s gel eyeliner has the covetable virtue of staying put. Line the lashes and blend for a soft look, or flick out for a feline finish.

Eyelash Curlers: Shu Uemura, eyelash curler. It’s surely the Japanese precision behind these legendary curlers that give them their cult status in the beauty realm. I’ve used them for over a decade!

Nail Polish: OPIMeet me on the Star Ferry. A rich plum with a delicate sheen, this could easily be the twinkling “Fragrant Harbour” at twilight…

Hand Cream: L’OccitaneCherry Blossom. Beautifully scented and nourishing, this is an all-time favourite L’Occitane product.

Fragrance: Anna SuiDolly Girl. Light, floral and slightly fruity. A spritz of this is like brushing past a spring Magnolia in full bloom. (Also, packaging ♥).
