  1. the hello kitty blotting papers are so cute!

    i saw a bunch of majolica majorca and kose cosmetics when i went back to hong kong, but at that time i didn’t know anything about those brands and they were a bit pricey for such a small quantity :(.

  2. I have the Majolica Majorca Mascaras, at first when I start using it I didn’t like it much, it takes really long to dry so a lot of time after I applied it when I blink it gets on the skin near my lower lash line. And it is kind of hard to get it off and I have to take my time getting off. But overall I kinda like it. lol

    the hello kitty oil blotting paper looks so cute and I’m interested about how does the Eyebrow razors work?!

    thanks for sharing what you got!

  3. Awww, these are all so cute!! I can’t wait till I get to HK this summer!!
    I didn’t know Hello Kitty had such cute blotting sheets! Did you buy them at Watson’s or something? Where can I find those Majolica Majorca products?

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. love your blog, was wondering if u could do a video of applying false lashes with the eyelash clip?? i bought the clip n stil havent been able to use it properly

  5. Aww I really want the Majolica Majorca mascara! Heard lots of raves about it. I have the same pink Majolica Majorca Eyeliners and one in black, can’t say I am thrilled about them tho, the black gives me racoon eyes 30 minutes after I put it on and they are super soft to the point I broke the pink constantly. Please let us know what you think about them after you tried them :)

  6. Oh Hello Kitty Blotting Papers are so cut !

    I have the Majolica Majorca mascara but I don’t like it …. it takes long to dry and it makes nothing on my eyelashes :(
    I prefer Covergirl Lashblast or Stila Lash visor !

  7. I’ve heard before that it’s recommended to shave above the eyebrows so the hair follicles won’t be damaged, do you think you can give me some tips on how to do this? Or a tutorial? Thanks ^__^

  8. Heyya! i love how you post stuff of stuff you buy in Hong Kong, they’re amazing. i hope you’re having fun there.

    Also, I really liked how you posted something about bollywood stars, i think they are amazing, I think they can pull off black eyeliner really well. i love the look so much!

  9. awwwww! super cute! i want i want! lol i wonder if i can find some of these items and some of the Asian beauty supply shops here??

  10. I don’t like Majolica mascara at first because it’s not as black as I thought, but I really like it now. It doesn’t make my lash looks much thicker but it gives the natural look with appropriate length and curve.

  11. The Hello Kitty blotting papers are adorable! How much were they? I don’t think I will find them anywhere nearby… This may be silly, but do you think you could do a custom purchase on them?
