My Hong Kong Haul 2015

Hong Kong

I got back from Hong Kong last week. We had a great time in that great city. I could go on and on about the trip but for the sake of time, I’m going to focus only on my beauty impressions and purchases.

Before visiting Hong Kong, I did some online research, trying to find stores I’d like to visit that carried skincare. To my surprise, there wasn’t too much available for English speakers, especially Americans. After visiting, I totally get why. Every other store in Hong Kong… Continue reading | 17 Comments

EauMG’s January 2015 Empties

January 2015 Empties

Well, the first month of 2015 is officially over! I hope it went well for you guys. It went well for me.

This month I spent a week in Hong Kong. This resulted in me buying a ton of cosmetics and skincare. Like a ton (I’ll post a haul tomorrow). And this also resulted in me using up some travel-sizes and samples. I really should go into no-buy mode until the spring.

EauMG’s Answer: For the past few years, I’ve been using Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat. It’s cheap and works well. I like that it’s glossy and quick drying. I prefer it over Seche Vite (which I found would “shrink” my polishes)

EauMG’s Favorite Makeup & Beauty Products of 2014

Last year I posted my first every “Favorite of the Year” makeup and beauty product round-up (thanks The Non-Blonde for inspiring me). Now that 2014 is over, it’s time for me to share my favorite beauty products of the year.

 I’m a perfume blogger that is overwhelmed by new perfume launches; I can’t keep up with makeup launches too. This post isn’t about “Best New Products of 2014″. It’s a post about “new to me” products of 2014 that I fell in love with (and in a few cases, fell back in love… Continue reading | 11 Comments
