Hong Kong holiday haul: Sasa (mascaras, Revlon Custom Eyes palettes, Nicole by OPI)

Everything in this post was bought at Sasa. I was on my search for Bioderma and kept popping into Sasa stores which clearly didn't stock Bioderma. So instead, I kept coming out of the store with other things.

The price difference is astounding when compared to local Watsons' prices. Using an average exchange rate of SGD1 = HKD6, here are how much they cost after conversion.

  • Heroine Make mascara and mascara remover set HKD89 / SGD14.80 vs. local price: SGD21.90
  • Dolly Wink mascara HKD125 / SGD20.80 vs. local price: SGD29.90
  • Heavy Rotation Liquid Liner HKD69 / SGD11.50 vs. local price: SGD18.90
  • Fairy Drops mascara HKD98 / SGD16.30 vs. local price: SGD23.90
  • K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Eyebrow pencil HKD109 / SGD18.15 vs. local price: SGD19.90

You can't blame me for wanting to buy so many right?

These Revlon CustomEyes palettes have not yet been released in Singapore for all I know cos I haven't seen them around. These cost HKD108 each (approx SGD18). I chose these 2 palettes in 030 Rich Temptations and 020 Naturally Glamorous because of the really nice neutral complimenting colours.

Nicole By OPI nail polishes! My very first ones! And I blame Justin Bieber for these. LOL.

Nicole By OPI polishes are sold locally at selected Watsons. I've personally not seen them but I believe they cost more than SGD16? (edit: the exact price is SGD17.10. Thanks dearshopaholic!) In comparison, in Hong Kong, each one costs HKD75 / SGD12.50.

The One Less Lonely Girl collection, inspired by Justin Bieber, has 14 shades. "The collection is helping Justin raise awareness and funds for a nonprofit organization close to Justin’s heart, called Pencils of Promise (PoP). PoP helps to build schools and increase educational opportunities in the developing world. Justin has joined together with PoP to build 100 schools for children around the world with the help of young people everywhere."

I bought 3 of the 14 shades. I wasn't even sure if they had all the shades available but these were the ones that struck me most.

I've Got Bieber Fever

My Lifesaver

This one doesn't belong to the Justin Bieber collection. Named Bring On The Tinsel, it sounds more like it was from the Holiday collection.

A nail fortifier because my nails kept breaking and splitting and I was getting desperate. They seem to be getting better, but one nail has still not recovered. It's too short and too ugly for now, and that's why I haven't swatched these polishes yet. Will do so in time to come if anybody's interested.

So this wraps up my Sasa haul!
