Burberry recently opened one of their retail shops in Taipei, Taiwan.  The flagship looks slick and very “British.”  I can picture James Bond shopping for slacks and other fancy streetwear items.

Free Shipping @ Sasa + Cult Asian Beauty Products

I love this site!

This weekend (3/2 – 3/5) sasa.com is offering free shipping when you order $29 USD and up. Usually they only offer free shipping on purchases $75 USD+ so this is a pretty good deal!

Sasa is pretty much an Asian Sephora that offers everything from low-end to high-end brands. In terms of presence and popularity Sasa is akin to Starbucks as it is literally on every block in Hong Kong.

Sasa is one of my favorite places to buy Asian cosmetics and I’ve been buying from them for years.

If you’re like me and have been pretty unimpressed by the quality of BB Creams by Clinique, Garnier, and other Western brands in general, check Sasa for a bevy of Korean BB Creams that started the craze in the first place! Japanese BB Creams are also highly recommended!

Here’s a list of cult products and some personal favorites from all over Asia!
