Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween, everyone!!  I'm sharing a few pics of Everland with you.  Everland is a big theme park located in Seoul, Korea.  These pics were taken in late September this year when I traveled there.  I had a lot of fun there and even saw white tigers there which I will be posting pictures of in the near future! ^___^

Barbie Beauty Review

While I was in Hong Kong,  I stumbled upon a Barbie Beauty Counter at a beauty shop called "Facesss" at Harbour City.  The beauty line includes skincare and makeup products. The counter even offers manicures, pedicures, and gel nail services!!

I purchased the Three-Minutes Milk Mask from the Barbie Plastic Smooth Line, the Fruity Body Lotions from the Barbie Fruity Collection, and received a free Eye Glitter from the All Doll'd Up Makeup Line which I am all doing a review on.  

Fruity Body Lotion Review:
The Barbie Fruity Body Lotion comes in a package of 3 in the following scents: Bergamot, Strawberry Pomegranate, and Melon Ginger - all of which smell very delicious and not overpowering . The body lotion is quite dense compared to others but glides on smoothly and is not sticky at all.  It makes my skin soooo smooth, I love it so much!  I would definitely recommend this to others and will buy again the next time I go to Hong Kong.  I believe this is sold exclusively in Hong Kong and Shanghai.  =(

Three-Minutes Milk Mask Review:
This milk mask comes in the cutest bottle!! I gotta admit I'm a sucker for pretty packaging!  It's a small bottle but hopefully it'll last me awhile!  The mask has natural whitening formula which contains Vitamin C and Aloe Extract, and is supposed to instantly whitens skin (which is supposed to even out skin tone and make your complexion appear brighter). It comes out in mousse form and you're supposed to pat it over all your face and leave it on for 3 minutes.  I only used it once so far.  I did not see whitening results although my boyfriend did.  I'll have to use it for a couple of weeks to see if there are any improvements.  I'll keep you guys updated! 

Eye Glitter Review:

This Eye Glitter is so pretty and glittery! I do feel All Doll'd Up after I put it on ;). I love the pop of glitter, but then again, I love everything glittery and sparkly! I picked up the shade called "Fabulous", which is a bronzy color with goldish specks. It's a creamy eyeshadow and can be worn as a base or as eyeshadow alone.  It glides on smoothly and stays on all day.  Recommend this one too!

Gotta Hand It To Her Hand Lotion Review:
This hand lotion is a Barbie product by Cake. I purchased this from Sephora awhile back.  It is so great!  It smells like freshly baked cupcakes!  I always have this one in my purse.  Not sure if this one is for everybody since it smells really sweet.  I love it though! This hand lotion is not sticky and is very moisturizing.  I would buy again!

Stay tuned for more reviews on my other new beauty products that I purchased from Hong Kong and Korea!!  ^___^

These have got to be the cutest eyeshadow brushes ever!! These brushes are super soft (and antibacterial too!) and are white with color-coordinated tips! Super cute!  They come in a pack of 3 (eyeshadow, eyeliner, and crease brushes) and are $35 USD but I got them in Canada for more (things are always more expensive here!).  However, they still worked out to be a little cheaper than the average eyeshadow brushes if you were to buy them separately.

Really Cute Things from Hong Kong!

The toys that come with McDonald's Happy Meals are so cute!  Here is the whole SugarBunny set I collected while I was in Hong Kong (I couldn't resist!!):

I'm also in love with Rilakkuma (aka Relax Bear).  I found a shop filled with it! Sooo adorable!

SparklesNGlitter is on vacation!!


I'm currently on vacation in sunny Hong Kong and enjoying every bit of it!  I've been here for a week already and have already seen lots of cute and cool/funky things! I will update as much as I can but most of my time here is spent outside  ^___^.   My shop is still open and items will be mailed out every Monday and Thursdays in the mean time.

It was very hot and humid the first few days I arrived in Hong Kong.  Last time I checked, it was 30 degrees! It feels like summer. I love it because our summer in Canada was very short-lived.   It cooled down a bit and started raining the last couple of days.

One of my first shopping stops is a mall called APM.  Below are some cute things I found in the shops there (click to enlarge):

And of course, before I log off, I have to show you some of my recent purchases ;)
