Oh, hey there! Funnily enough, during my HK trip I managed to pick up a few beauty bits that I simply had to show off, as well as items bought on the occasional slip up in Boots and Debenhams since then. I actually managed to leave on of my favourite purchases out of this photo by mistake, but that's fine because I bought an extra of it to put in a giveaway that'll be heading your way next month! 
My first purchase of the trip was made at the Duty Free in Heathrow (didn't make it far, did I?) You know I love a good travel kit, so when I saw this OPI Venice Collection Travel Exclusive with six gorgeous minis, I was hooked. I can't seem to find the collection on the Duty-Free website anymore, but I think it cost about £16 which is a pretty good deal considering a single bottle that I would never finish retails for upwards of £10. I'm beyond excited to give 'Venice the party?' and 'Gelato on my mind' a go!
Onto hair, and we have these three; two of which I bought whilst away and one that popped off of the shelf in Boots. Firstly we have the third step of the Olaplex Treatment that I talked about having in my recent HK vlog. The first two parts are added into the hair dye and applied as a mask after washing respectively whilst still at the salon, and the third part has come home with me to use. I have a whole post dedicated to my Olaplex experience coming up soon, so be sure to check that out to find out more about the whole experience. 

Whilst at the hair salon (see which one I visit in HK here) I also bought the Furterer Astera Soothing Freshness Shampoo (£13) because my scalp has been a bit irritated as of late. I love the cooling effect it has and so far my scalp has definitely felt a bit 'calmer' so hopefully it's doing its job well!

Last but not least for the haircare we've got a travel size of Bumble and Bumble's Prêt a Powder (£7.50 / 14g) which I don't really know what I want to do with yet! I already have the full size of this and love it, so I'm torn between keeping it for myself and stashing it in my handbag, or giving it to one of my sisters as part of their Christmas presents! Decisions, decisions...

Lastly, we have the makeup products. I'm sure you've probably seen that Rimmel has recently released some new shades of their Exaggerate Lip Liners, and I took it upon myself to grab the shade 'Obsession' to go with my bazillion other 'vampy' autumn shades. Yes, I know that I don't need any more of these... it was an accident, and at only £3.99, at least it was a cheap accident!

With my beloved YSL Babydoll Mascara starting to reach the end of its life, I decided to pop into Debenhams and pick up a mascara that I loved at the beginning of 2014 to see if it still does it for me - the Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara (£23). I love this because the brush is really 'grippy' so you can really wiggle your lashes around at the root to create some great volume. 

The only product that I actually bought whilst in HK from this makeup bunch is the EOS Lipbalm in Coconut Milk (£4.90). I know they sell these balms in the UK, but I've never seen this flavour before here so I decided to treat myself! I've never actually finished one of these, so I'm determined that this will be the one because OMG it smells like a Piña Colada!

So that's what I've popped in my basket lately! As always, if you'd like to see a product in more detail then let me know in the comments. What have you bought recently? Let me know!
