OPI Hong Kong Collection SS 09/10

OPI is going to launch a Hong Kong Collection, it immediately catches my attention, I am happy that they are inspired by the Pearl of Orient, a name for Hong Kong as known to people in the world. This collection includes 12 shades:

- Bling Dynasty

- Red My Fortune Cookie

- Hot & Spicy

- Dim Sum Plum

- Jade is the New Black

- Suzi Says Feng Shui

- A Good Man-darin is Hard to Find

- Lucky Lucky Lavender

- Meet Me on the Star Ferry (I love this name, sounds romantic)

- Panda-monium Pink

- Pearl of Wisdom

- I'm Chop-Ssticking to My Story

Personally, I think it's more like a old Hong Kong, like in the 60s/70s, especially from the setting above with the boat, and also the hair style and chunky accesssories (below). As for colours, Mathilda's favourites are Red My Fortune Cookie and Suzi Says Fung Shui.

This collection is set to be in stores in February 2010.

My own Clinique 2-step skin care system

Clinique's 3-step skin care system is very well-known, I am not sure how many people are following it completely, I just know that I am not one of them. I have created my Clinique 2-step skin care system. Since for its Step 1: Cleanse, I replace it by Bioderma Non-rinse cleanser which I wrote about a while back on this blog. It's simple and fast, can be used for eyes and mouth and face.

Then it's Step 2: Exfoliate

I use Clinique Clarifying Lotion No.2 (normal/combination skin) for exfoliation, my face feels very clean and fresh everytime I use it. But I have to admit that although they say that it's alcohol-free, it's very strong when I sweep on my face with the cotton pad, every time I do it, I have to close my eyes and stop breathing, otherwise my eyes and nose wouldn't feel well. Anyway, afterwards my face feels cool and fresh, and as the product description said "A gentle 'tingle' tells you it's working", and that's what I feel on my face, so I suppose it works every time! :D

Step 3: Moisturize

I bought this Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Relief solely for my long-haul plane ride in June initially, and after that I have put it aside for the whole summer. It's only until recently, the weather becomes drier, and it comes back to my magical product. Every morning and evening, I would apply it after the Clarifying Lotion, before the foundation. I can feel that my skin immediately becomes more supple and smooth, and elastic. It's a perfect product for Autumn/Winter seasons.
