Yay! Easter is finally here… long weekend here we come! But before we kick back, relax and scoff all our Easter eggs next weekend, here’s our round-up of some of HK’s coolest events this week.

Get glam – and make a difference
Charity collaborations are all the rage these days but what we love about MAC’s Viva Glam initiative is that every single cent – not just a percentage of profits or a small fraction of the cost – goes to their MAC Aids Fund. This time, they’ve enlisted singing superstars Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin (probably the first and last time we can expect to see them together!) to create two fab lip products – a bright pink lipstick for Nicki and a moisturising lip conditioner for Ricky. So now’s the time to get glam and make a difference; make sure you snag one before they sell out!
When: Out now
Where: See all MAC locations in Hong Kong here
How much: Lipstick $140, lip conditioner $130
Easter egg hunt
Celebrate Easter with some hip-hop mash-up all night long at FLY, who will be holding a Wasted Bunnies night where you get scavenge for FLY’s special Easter eggs, which will all be filled with intoxicating treats! Even better – it’s complimentary for girls, there will be free-flow selected cocktails from 10pm-2am plus some special offers on shots too. If you manage to recover in time for Easter Weekend, check out BLOOM’s scrummy Easter Brunch – where there’s optional free-flow of Bellini or Bloody Marys!
