Innisfree Long Wear BB Cream

During one of my many shopping excursions in Seoul back in October, I purchased the Innisfree Long Wear BB Cream to try.
I like thicker BB creams that have higher coverage so this long wear formula seemed promising.
The product comes in a slim squeeze tube, rather minimal but good to travel with. 


I got shade no. 2 Natural Beige. It is a pretty good match for my skintone. I recall shade no. 1 being too pink upon swatching. 


The formula is very thick but doesn't look cakey upon application. 
I really like the coverage it provides and as the name states, it is quite long wearing. I blot and touch-up with powder once day when using this and it holds up well throughout the work day. I wouldn't say it is as long wearing as certain long wear foundations, such as the Estee Lauder Double Wear, but it will last a good 12 hours without looking patchy or greasy. 


I can't remember the price I paid but it was rather affordable, under $20.
The product claims to whiten, minimize wrinkles, & provide UV protection. I can't say I see any drastic whitening or wrinkle minimizing results solely from using this product.
But overall it is a good everyday bb cream for me. If you are someone who prefers a more lightweight bb cream, this is not it XD

This is good. A bit too good. 
I promise it is funny XD

Dim Sum in Hong Kong

I couldn't go all the way to Hong Kong and not have dim sum at least once. So on my last day, we went before I headed off to the airport.
Yes, we over ordered. No, we did not have any regrets xP













Hong Kong was fun. Any place with a surplus of places to eat and crap to buy is a winner in my book.
Will be back some day soon!

I've been rather addicted to Kim Soo Hyun's new drama, You Who Came From The Stars. It's hilarious and he plays a pretty 400 year old alien. What's not to love.

Hong Kong Trip: Day 4

Happy New Year!!!
So I pretty much forgot to finish recapping my Hong Kong trip, which happened nearly 8 months ago XD
Better late than never?

The fourth day started out with breakfast at a tiny and noisy place where we were forced to share tables with a stranger (common in Hong Kong, weird for me hahaha)
The food here was great though so worth sacrificing personal space!

Best HK style milk tea ever!


With a thick slab of butter in it, how can this not be good?



Next, we headed to Festival Walk, a huge shopping center in Kowloon Tong.


To refuel after shopping, we went to simplylife for some afternoon tea.
The cafe is located on level 2 of the shopping complex, near the food court.


With each afternoon tea set, you got to select a sandwich or cake.


Everything we ordered tasted pretty good.


I could really go for a slice of that epic chocolate tart right now...



Highly recommend this place. The atmosphere is very relaxing, good place to people watch since it is right above the indoor ice skating rink.
Or you can wander over and drool at the delicious cakes and breads XD





The line for afternoon tea at simplylife is long so plan ahead!

That evening we went to the Temple Street Night Market for some dinner.


I am not sure what the name of the restaurant is in English but the food here is so good! And very cheap too =]




This clay pot rice dish is a must order. The rice on the bottom gets crispy. Yum!




Fried oyster pancake was also one of their popular dishes.



After dinner, we walked to Nathan Road, which is nearby, for shopping and dessert.



Dessert! 
The mango one is mine, of course XD
