IS BEAUTY SHOPPING IN HONG KONG BETTER THAN SEX?
Beauty shopping in Hong Kong is like sex. Even not so great sex is still somehow kind of good.
On Day 1 of Hong Kong, Bridgit and I take you with us on a tour of a few beauty stores....cause it's the first thing we wanted to do.
>>Where we went:
Our favorite beauty store today was Facesss at Harbor City (just a short walk from our hotel, The Shangri-La.
While it housed many well known brands, (and nothing you haven't seen before) I will say this....the store MADE you want to shop for all the pretty things. It hit all of your senses at every turn. Not only was it well decorated, it was experiential and impeccably clean. This type of makeup shopping was so much different (and better) than any Sephora could even dream of.
As I walked through the store, it was a painful reminder how we have completely lost this experience in the USA.
The "beauty advisors" in Hong Kong are so much more helpful, without the hard sell and without the ATTITUDE. Never once were you made to feel "inferior" or looked down on if you didn't look like your favorite Youtube star or Instagram photo... It was if I had stepped into my own little slice of heaven.
What we didn't see? Bronzer. Contouring. Heavy Foundation. Instabrows. Can we move here? I will say this about Hong Kong. I find myself very at home here. #winning.
Here are our photos....Hope you enjoy....
Once we left Facesss, we took a quick tour thru the Shu store....always cute....
Another store we stumbled on was Colormix. It was more of a pharmacy type store that had all kinds of fun things...and it was right next door to the hotel...
Until tomorrow, hope you enjoyed this quick trip of beauty shopping in Hong Kong.
