Haul from Seoul: Items from a Cosmetic Outlet

18 Mar

Our tour guide brought us to a cosmetic outlet somewhere in Seoul. I forgot what it was called and where it was located. All I remembered are the pictures of the celebrities outside that shop.

(please pardon picture quality, I took this from the bus)

That outlet shop consisted of a different brands of cosmetics and skin care, some brands I recognized but I was not familiar with the others. The brands I know are The Face Shop, Tony Moly, Skin79, Peripera, Clio, Skinfood, and Coogi. The array of products are limited and the prices, if I remembered correctly, are similar to normal shops.

I only got three items from that shop since I was not sure where the shops of Peripera, Clio and Skin79 shops are located in Myeongdong.

– Clio Waterproof  Brush Pen Liner Kill Black

– Peripera My Color Lips (Color 21- Soul Pink)

The Skin79 BB cream set (this set came in a box but I had to discard because it’s bulky) consists of:

– VIP Gold Collection Super Beblesh Balm

– Super Beblesh Balm

– Diamond Collection The Prestige BB Cream

The outlet shop did not give any gifts, samples or even VAT refund. A passport is required with purchase.

I haven’t used any of the products. The Skin79 BB creams are for my friends. I have swatched the Clio eyeliner and it is really black and has a very fine nib. The lipstick is a pale pink, almost nude pink but  I haven’t swatched it though. It came in a very pretty case. I will do a separate review on the eyeliner and lipstick sometime.

Have you tried the products I mentioned? Care to share?

Cheers 🙂

Waiting for my next Gmarket package

26 Jan

Hi! I’m back 😉

My Korean winter trip is coming up next month, so I found another reason to shop at Gmarket. Yes, I really can’t resist shopping and Gmarket  is so addicting, so I just placed my order earlier.

It was my plan to make a purchase at the end of the month but some items either got out of stock or changed into a higher price (promo event ended already) so for fear of frustration of items getting canceled, I decided to finally press the “pay” button of my shopping cart. If my calculations are right, I expect my haul to arrive sometime next week. Hopefully, I won’t pay extra duty tax this time. *fingers crossed*

I’m excited to receive two pairs of shoes, bag and some cosmetics and skincare from The Saem and Lacvert. 😀

As I will be going to Korea next month and another trip to the Philippines in July, I might force myself to go on a shopping diet. I haven’t finalised the rules for my “diet” though, if Gmarket is exempted from it 🙂 Oh I remember that in case I won’t have time to go shopping in Seoul (I will be joining a package tour so free time is close to nil), I’ll buy souvenirs from Korea in Gmarket just in time I visit home in July 🙂

But fo now, I can’t wait for my Gmarket haul to arrive.

Cheers 🙂
