Toys from Hong Kong

A friend of my husband’s went to Hong Kong for vacation recently. He was kind enough to bring me back some cosmetic toys. I was super excited to see the Guerlain Pearly White balls and Cosme Decorte AQ palette along with the rest of the stuff.

However upon opening, I got disappointed a bit because they’re not what I wanted. But don’t get me wrong here. I’m still really appreciate the effort for bringing them back. Originally I want the Guerlain 2009 Pearly White Meteorites 04 but it ends up being the 2010 Absolute White 05 even though it’s also called Pearly White on the box. So I did a little research on the 04 Pearly White. It’s also called Pastel White. This is so confusing. Why do they give two names to a same product?! Anyway let’s look at the difference.

Same with the AQ. I didn’t know that Hong Kong has a totally different AQ than in Japan.  Considering the palette costs ¥6000 (most likely more than 70 bucks if bought in the US), it must be something great. Even though it’s not the one I wanted, I’m excited to try it. Besides I don’t have a similar color combination.

One thing that really make me smile is the new RMK Spring Modern palette and the nail polish. I got 01 Goldish Blue and EX 26 Pink. The color looks even prettier than online. The powder also seems really fine. And finally I got my hands on the RMK nail polish after eyeballing for so long. I’m going to have to show it as my next Color of the Week.

Last but not least I also got the Jill Stuart Berry Scrub after falling in love with her cleansing oil and cream wash. I will start using it for a while before doing a review. The Jewel Crystal eyeshadow palette remains on the shopping list since they’re not out in HK.

    I really want the RMK palettes, but I'm always afraid that it will be too much color for me, I don't think I look good in bright colors. Do you think I still should try it or not?
