I'm am 100% grateful for meeting my best friend in uni, who knows me so well and no matter the distance we will always stick by each other. Most of these products were gifted to me as a birthday present from Trudy, who also has a fantastic blog here, so don't forget to check her out. I received a selection of Kevyn Aucoin products - a brand everyone has heard about, especially The Sensual Skin Enhancer which is a great undereye concealer - I never tried anything from Kevyn Aucoin and these look stunning.
Starting with The Gossamer Loose Powder in Diaphanous - the item that looks like a cushion compact. It's a translucent powder suitable for all skin types to enhance your complexion and leaves your skin with a silky finish. The puff that comes with this is amazingly soft and I can not wait to try this out.
Another Kevyn Aucoin item: The Precision Eye Definer in Ironclad is an eyeliner that can be used on your waterline and eyelid. It has long lasting power up to 14 hours and also does not smudge. Ironclad is a metallic grey shade but it looks more of a taupe brown in person, it glides on smoothly with its creamy texture.
Next is The Expert Lip Color in Bloodroses. This is extremely pigmented and velvety with moisturising abilities, proven to repair damaged lips. The shade Bloodroses as named is a deep blood red colour but the above photograph looks too red. The photograph below with swatches is the true colour which is a deep red with a satin finish.
Lastly, the pebbled shaped product is the Lilah.B Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.fearless. It is heavily weighted and can be classed as a cream blusher and lip stain. This is highly pigmented with a buildable formula and long-wearing ability. Personally, I've always avoided cream blushers since they don't work well for me, but as a lip tint, this is beautiful and natural. I think the concept of this is very refreshing, inside the packaging, it says 'With less, you are more'.
An exciting selection of Charlotte Tilbury Skincare which I have been dying to try out, these are all travel size and I can't find the links on the UK site.
I've received a 15ml of Charlotte's Magic Cream, this contains different skincare ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, which re-plumps your skin and Bio-Nymph Peptide Complex to prevent anti-ageing, as it stimulates collagen production and cell energy.
I also received Wonder Glow, which has 3 different uses. 1, under foundation as a primer. 2, over foundation for a radiant finish. And 3, on its own after Charlotte's Magic Cream for long-lasting glow. Overall it's a radiating primer that has multiple uses, it contains tiny shimmer particles that reflect light and has a strong scent of roses.
The Multi-Miracle Glow (15ml) is also a multi-use product: as a cleanser, mask or balm which can be used on all parts of the body. The balm/mask has anti-aging benefits for the skin and smells like green tea.
Another product is the Goddess Skin Clay Mask which claims to visibly lift, smooth and brighten your skin. This is quite fascinating, I do like a good clay mask to improve my complexion and the consistency is much thinner than I imagined.
Lastly, Take It All Off Genius Eye Makeup Remover. It is a two-toned oil based cleanser. Oil cleansers are the best for me to remove my eye makeup since do coat on a lot of mascara. I'll probably keep this until I travel again.
I've received the Christophe Robin Volumising Shampoo and Volumising Conditioner. This is the first time I've heard of the brand. The shampoo claims to gently cleanse your scalp while protecting your hair colour. The conditioner is enriched with rose oil extracts that volumise your hair without weighing it down. I've seen great reviews on these.
Lastly, I bought some eye masks, I have been a crazy eye mask fanatic anything that will help me reduce my stubborn line under my eye. These are the My Scheming Gel Eye Mask (can't find the link for these) and the Miskin Gold Diamond Hydro-Gel Eye Patch which contains 30 pairs -it is a Korean product which I purchased in a dedicated Korean store in HK. The eye shape is a little difficult to place under your eyes since it's not balanced like the other eye mask I have used.
Another eye product is the Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara, this is ideal for your lower lashes and is water-resistant and smudge proof .
Lastly, my sister gave me the Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate. This product is to help maintain youthfulness and help skin recovery. It claims that you can see its effect within 7 days. This is very interesting and I can't wait to work through my skincare purchases.
These are all exciting products that I have accumulated in Hong Kong, if there are any reviews that you want to see, leave me a comment below. I hope you've enjoyed this haul!.
Until next time!
