3 Concept Eyes, aka 3CE, is fashion giant Stylenanda’s in-house beauty brand. It boasts an extensive list of both skincare and makeup products to help you achieve that flawless base and colourful, flirty look. With enough lip products to last a lifetime – lip lacquer, matte lip colour, lip crayon, lip balm, lip gloss and more – it’ll be difficult to make up your mind on what to bring home. We suggest their famed Velvet Lip Tint ($129) for a long-lasting blurred lip stain and the Lip Marker ($139) if you’re hoping to expand your makeup stationery collection. Prefer accentuating your eyes? Pick up their Mood Recipe Multi Eye Color Palette ($329) in the colour range of your choice.
Billboards and advertisements featuring sheet masks, lip tints, BB creams and serums have taken over Hong Kong. For that, we have Korean beauty trends to thank. There’s a reason why Hong Kong has fully jumped on the K-beauty train: their brands are hailed for savvy innovation, aesthetic packaging and, most importantly, tangible results. K-beauty is now ubiquitous for its associations with flawless skin and natural makeup, but it isn’t just a materialistic term – rather, it’s a lifestyle that allows skincare and makeup to become a form of self-care. Over the years, Hong Kong (in particular, Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui) has become a mecca for those shopping for Korean beauty products, but particular brands can be difficult to find if you aren’t sure where to look. Here are 10 places where you can find everything from lip gel patches to snail essence to satisfy your K-beauty craving. By Mabel Lui
