Buying Bourjois in Hong Kong

In a word, don't.

Products here are double what they cost in the UK. I understand some mark-up is necessary but double is unacceptable.

For example, Bourjois' Bio Detox Liquid Foundation retails here for about HKD240 and in the UK for GBP10 (HKD124).

Unless products are on sale for at least 50% off, and even then you're paying full retail, it really isn't worth your money.

Buy instead from asos.co.uk where you pay UK prices and international shipping is free.

If you're looking for Bourjois Counters to try their products, the two best are in Seibu, Langham Place Mongkok and in Times Square. However, Watsons in Melbourne Plaza has a biggish counter. Although it's not updated frequently you're more likely to score 50% off deals here.
