  1. wooooooaaaahhh!! that is a lot of stuff...*sigh* I wish I had the money to buy more! :-( what do you do for a living?x

    1. engineering. i don't earn a lot and i have definitely over-spent this month :(

  2. The $787 is in HKD right? lol I was in full shock before I looked through the prices again... haha. I am obsessed with the hunger games too but the colors look so blah to me in pictures I never bothered to look for them. China Glaze isn't easy to find here, not many stores carry them. =(

    1. i'm bad i know, that i spent so much, i will def. not buy anything in May! the china glaze capitol colours, I feel, are more Winter than Summer. out of the 12, maybe just 4 are must haves IMO. same here too, it's a little hard to find, most shops just sell Essie or OPI.

  3. At least you are not spending big per item. It's just a lot of little things that add up (if that makes you feel better!). btw do you have any suggestions for a good falsies glue (preferably non Asian brand easier for me to get). I bought a Shiseido while in Japan which was totally useless.

    1. Hmm.. I don't know of many lash glue - I used to use the Ardell Lashgrip Dark glue, it holds well and dries to a dark liquid liner/but after a few months it expires and won't work anymore. I saw youtubers/bloggers rave about the Revlon precision lash glue, not sold in Asia, perhaps a US thing? I intended to try the DUO glue next after I use up my current stash (using Dolly Wink and D-UP now, both Asian)...

      hope it helps :P

  4. Very interesting haul. Where can I get China Glaze and Essie nail polishes in HK?

    1. A shop that I have shopped from multiple times is at CKE shopping mall in Tsim Sha Tsui. You can refer to my friend's post here:
      she recently visited Hong Kong and bought some nail polish!
