What’s that faint ringing sound you hear? The approaching onslaught of tinny renditions of Jingle Bells being piped through every Hong Kong mall sound system for the next few weeks, that’s what!
Scrooge sentiments aside, C-Day is well and truly on its way – and with it, party season too. One of the most common questions I get asked as a beauty blogger in Hong Kong is where people can go to get a makeover session pre-party; it’s actually a service that quite a lot of the make-up counters here offer and just don’t advertise properly… but my default answer is always MAC! They have such a huge cosmetics range that covers pretty much every colour or product you desire, so can really give you the full works in any number of styles – and with over 20 locations throughout Hong Kong, there should be a venue that’s convenient for you.
Having been a devoted fan of MAC Cosmetics for many years now, I was invited to hand the reins over to the experts with my own 60-minute MAC make-up session – perfectly timed to showcase some of the newest products from their just-launched Holiday 2015 Magic Of The Night Collection. (Hint that will surprise absolutely no one: there might be a bit of glitter involved!)

What’s better than finding a beauty product you really truly love? Finding that same beauty product you really truly love at an even cheaper price!
Ever since Clinique’s Chubby Sticks became a total beauty blockbuster, every cosmetics company with half a brain has been inspired to create similarly chunky, lovely lip crayons (hi Sisley Phyto Lip-Twists!). As someone who just can’t get enough of all vaguely-pencil shaped beauty products, I’ve been lapping up these Chubby cousins with open arms – and wallet! – but perhaps the most dupe-tastic have to be Revlon’s ColorBurst Balm Stains.

The arrival of Shu Uemura’s latest lip product = this baby’s got laque!
Oh come on, you know I can never resist a good pun… and nor can I resist a good lippie. Shu Uemura’s Laque Supreme is a gorgeous halfway house between a lipstick and a lip gloss – but there certainly isn’t anything half-hearted about the final results!
Inspired by the high shine and rich colours of Japanese lacquerware, Laque Supreme essentially marries the consistency of a lip gloss with the intense pigmentation of a lipstick. But actually, it’s even better than that.

I’ve seen the future… and it’s chubby.
Hot on the heels of Clinique’s amazing successful Chubby Stick and Chubby Stick Intense Moisturising Lip Balms, come Clinique’s Chubby Stick Shadow Tints for Eyes! If you’re onto something good, milk it for all it’s worth – and when it’s as outrageously awesome as this, who’s complaining?!
Chubby Stick Shadow Tints for Eyes are basically a riff on eye shadow pencils – think MAC Shadesticks, Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks, Bobbi Brown Cream Shadow Sticks, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencils or NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils and you’re halfway there. The difference? Clinique’s Chubby Sticks are bigger, fatter and well… just plain chubbier! Whereas most of the above products are either slim-line refined sticks of shadow or supersized eyeliner pencils, Chubby Sticks are chunky crayons of colour, just the right size to grab hold of and glide across the eyelid in one swoop.
