China & Hong Kong Haul

Hi everyone! It's been a really long time since I last posted. I was on vacation to China & Hong Kong and then when I came back, I was going to post this haul earlier, but I was so busy with homework and then I got really really really sick on my birthday haha, what an unlucky coincidence. I'm still sick right now and it will take months for me to fully recover, but today I felt a bit better so I thought I might put this up. I also have a mini haul at the end which is just from the holidays but in Melbourne. 
Oh and do you prefer Helvetica or Arial? Just in case you aren't sure, this is Helvetica by the way. 
Oh, and this is a whopper of a haul (:
Tiffany & Co. Bracelet I didn't actual buy this, my very lucky aunty and uncle won it in a raffle at Christmas dinner, and I'm so thankful that they gifted it to me. This is actually my first ever piece of Tiffany jewellery.
Tiffany & Co. Necklace with snow hat charm This is actually one of my birthday presents. My Mum promised to buy me something from Tiffany, as I didn't actually have any, until my relatives won the bracelet lol. I wish they had a guitar or something, but I love this snow hat so much!

So... I went a little Bobbi Brown crazy in Hong Kong, as everything is almost or more than half the price of Australia's. This was also the first time I ever got anything from Bobbi Brown, and I got some pretty amazing products that will be my all time favourite products. Now I even love Bobbi Brown more than MAC.
Bobbi Brown Powder Brush
Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Mineral Makeup SPF 15 in Light to Medium 
Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow in Cement
Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation in Warm Beige 3.5
Bobbi Brown Face Touch Up Stick in Warm Beige 3.5
Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener in Light to Med Peach
Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil
Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Tonic
Bobbi Brown Hydrating Gel Cream
Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream
Bobbi Brown Ultra Nude Eye Palette (colours left to right: chino, praline, pink chandelier, stone, champagne truffle, cocoa berry)
Bobbi Brown Blush in Nude Peach
Nars Blush in Amour
Beauty Blender I absolutely freaked out when I saw this in Sasa because I didn't know Sasa had them. Sasa is amazing, it's one of my favourite stores, it's like beauty supply store mixed with skin care and makeup that is both low end and high end. They also have high end perfumes. 
Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus
Fairydrops Volume Burst Waterproof Mascara
Koji Dollywink Liquid Eyeliner
EOS Lipbalms in Summer Fruit, Honeysuckle Honeydew and Lemon Drop I also freaked out when I saw they had EOS. Although I wish they had the flavour Sweet Mint.
EOS Everyday Hand Lotion
Mikado Perfume Atomisers
My first ever purchase from Makeup Forever!
Lesson 1 Natural Eyes includes: Aqua Creams in #13 & #15, Mini Aqua Eyes in 2L and 0L
MAC Lipstick in Fanfare
Loreal BaseMagique
Victoria's Secret Bombshell Body Mist I've never bought anything from Victoria's Secret because there isn't a store in Australia, until... I saw one in the Melbourne Airport Departure Terminal!
Marc Jacobs Oh Lola! Perfume
Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Extra Radiance Renewer
Green Cotton Tips I just had to show these because I've never seen coloured cotton tips before!
100 Guitar Classics
Getz/Gilberto
Yellowcard - When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes (Acoustic) An amazing album. I was planning on getting the original and then I saw in Hong Kong Records that there was an acoustic one and I just had to get it.
Knitwear Jacket from Bershka
Sweater from H&M
A cute little stocking left on the hotel door


Longchamp Tote Bag
Marc by Marc Jacobs iPhone Case
And that's everything I got on my vacation. But now I have quite a few things that I bought over the summer holidays.
MAC Eyeshadow Quad
MAC ES in Quarry (bottom right) I was originally going to get this eyeshadow in Hong Kong, but they don't actually have that shade in Hong Kong. The other colours are Brule (top left), All That Glitters (top right) and Satin Taupe (bottom left).
Smashbox Arched Liner Brush #21
Ray Ban Prescription Sunglasses Yay! I got some prescription sunglasses! Just in time for Summer, I love these sunglasses sooooo much!
Wedges from Sportsgirl These shoes are sooooo comfortable, they've got a platform but not a very deep heel which makes them sooooo good to wear.

Clarisonic Mia in Ice Blue I ordered my Clarisonic early in the month and it recently arrived. It also came with a sample of the Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser and a charger of course.
Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser I wanted to buy the Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser but the Clear Complexion line isn't actually out in Australia yet.
The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil My third one, enough said. 
Finally done, that's a lot of stuff haha. Thanks for reading and I'll see you guys later!

    1. I've tried all the products out and I love them! The foundation is really great, it's a medium coverage, it looks really natural but has buildable coverage. I really like it for combination skin because it's hydrating but it doesn't look oily and has a nice natural, a little bit dewy finish.

      The concealers are both fantastic, the tinted eye brightener is great at covering dark circles, although that isn't much of a problem for me so I'm not sure how it will work on worse cases, but I do know a lot of people love the Bobbi Brown Corrector.

      The Face Touch Up Stick is really awesome at covering my pimples and I like it more than the MAC Studio Finish concealer because it's not as drying. Although I think the Bobbi Brown Face Touch Up Stick is quite compatible with the Nars Stick Concealer.

      I hope that helps, and if you want a full Bobbi Brown review, just ask! (: Because I'm probably going to do it anyway (: And sorry that was SOOOOO long on
