Don’t we agree that, if one thing should be customized its beauty? I mean whether it is skincare or makeup, there cannot be only one product that fits all ages, all skin colors, all skin types …. Plus, if I’m being 100% honest, I’m loving the posh idea of having my very own and unique product, created by myself for myself. 
If you are like me, you are going to love the BY TERRY PALETTE FACTORY at Lane Crawford which allows you to create your own bespoke palette of blush, eye-shadow and/or face powder. First, you get to select your design: mono, duo, marble duo, trio, marble trio. Then, comes the not so easy part: choosing from an endless array of color pigments and powders. Can’t I have them all?  Your palette is then pressed and ready for you to walk away with within 10 min.
Wanna know what my palette looks like? There’s no way I’m sharing it with you, I want it to remain unique! Your greedy little thieves! 
Mono palette: HKD 490
Duo and Marble Duo palette: HKD 520
Trio and Marble Trio palette: HKD 550 
Open until August 30, 2019

L’Eau de Bonpoint is probably one of the very first perfumes I wore, like I guess many French kiddos, and if I’m not wearing it anymore, I love to always have a bottle of it on my bathroom shelves. It just smells like childhood! 
So, when I heard Bonpoint was launching an elevated and more intense version of it, I had to give it a go! L’Eau Intense is more feminine than its older sister with a warmer, woodier background of cedar, musk and moss but still that unique and addictive neroli and orange blossom scent. Love, love, love! 
Available at Bonpoint’s stores: Landmark Prince’s Building (Central), Harbour City (TST), Lee Garden Two (Causeway Bay), Canton Road (TST)

I first discovered kiwi cruelty-free brand Antipodes® a year ago and have since them tested many of their products, loving absolutely each and every one of them from the Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream  to the Grapeseed Butter Cleanser  but also the Facial Mud Mask  or the Aura Manuka Honey Mask. Well, the Blessing Anti-Pollution Light Face Serummakes no exception.  
Anti-pollution qualities are definitely something you’d be looking for in a city like Hong Kong and this serum has proven to stop free radicals from damaging the skin thanks to Vinanza® Grape and Asian Ginger. But, what I love the most about it is how smooth and silky my skin feels after applying it. I thank the avocado and jojoba oils for that! 
HKD 329
Available at Watsons’ stores around town
