If you have been following my personal Instagram, you may have noticed I have been having some adventures in Hong Kong! I’ll give you some more pictures at the end of this post, but it was really fun! Of course, I had to get in a little beauty shopping while there though, right?
When I walked out of my hotel, I was delighted to see a giant Etude House glowing pink and frilly across the street. I dragged my roommate in and managed to only walk out with a lipstick.
But oh, it is a glorious lipstick. Hong Kong is a pricey city and on day one, I was a little shaky with the currency conversion so just bought one thing. Turns out, this lippie was only $11 USD, but you can find it cheaper here if you so wish!
The full name of this is Sweet Recipe Dear My Jelly Lips-talk in JPK002, which is a raspberry color.
I am a sucker for the aesthetic of Etude House, and I have to admit, it was so fun shopping in the store. Everything was so pink! I love the white bejeweled packaging. It almost looks like doll/play makeup.
I also fell in love with the jelly-look of the lipstick itself. My friend and I had a ball swatching them, and I decided this one looked the ‘juiciest’. It also has a sweet Hawaiian Punch smell to it, which is fun!
The color is sheerer, but buildable, and honestly more pigmented than I thought. I did not have high hopes for the quality of this, but it feels good on my lips, lasts about 2 hours, and has a lovely color.
Overall, I am glad I picked up this little gem from Etude House. Have you tried any of their cosmetics or skincare? I wanted to pick up a BB Cream, but I was constantly out of time to go shopping!
Now, as promised, a peek into my Hong Kong adventures!
The skyline is amazing!! I really fell in love with this city!
It was monsoon-rainy and windy there, but here is me in front of the harbor. Also…85 degree heat and 90% humidity made my skin feel great! But the rest of me…not so much!
Also, this little dumpling guy was kind of the cutest thing ever.
Missed you all!
