Shopping at SASA and Colourmix in Macau

SASA, Colourmix, Beauty, Macau

An out-of-the-country trip is never complete without a little shopping. I’m not keen on buying clothes and shoes abroad, but most of you would know that I have this thing for skincare products. I always look for beauty boutiques whenever I visit another country. I bet you can imagine my excitement upon seeing (finally!) SASA and Colourmix stores during my two-day tour in Macau.

Happy Skin x Disney Princess: Cinderella and Ariel

Happy Skin x Disney Princess in Cinderella and Ariel

Innisfree Aloe Revital Skin Mist, Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder, Missha The Style 4D Mascara, Korean beauty

I used to be a sucker for all things Korean – from K-Dramas to K-Pop, I’d always keep up with the latest trends through Allkpop and Koreaboo. Unfortunately, I lost interest in watching Korean soap operas and listening to new albums of my former favorite singers. I broke up with my fascination over these fads a long time ago (two years ago?), but I’m keeping my obsession with Korean cosmetics alive and intact. My go-to K-beauty brands continue to satisfy my needs, and wala akong balak na palitan ‘yung routine ko kasi sa totoo lang, ang laki ng in-improve ng skin ko after sticking to a proper regimen – thanks to Etude House, Nature Republic, The Face Shop, and Skinfood. 🙂
