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 🙂

Online Shopping… Again :)

11 Oct

iheartkoreanbeauty little parcel

Yes, I am one impatient girl. Since my parcels from my ebay and Gmarket shopping haven’t arrived yet, I decided to buy a few things from Zhen of http://iheartkoreanbeauty.mybigcommerce.com/. I made my order on October 1st and received the parcel on October 8th. She posted the parcel on the 5th and I got it so quick. Not that I am complaining 😉

It is always a breeze ordering from Zhen, she is accommodating and regularly communicates with me; she also sends me photos of the parcel before sending them. She is also generous with samples and indulges me with freebies albeit a small purchase.

Anyway, let’s look inside the little box. You can see that all items are properly bubble-wrapped so you are assured that the products are safe from breakage or spillage.

Skin79 Special Clear Set

 Charmzone Red Wine Set (Sample Size)

 the saem BB Cream

 Baviphat Snail Cure Mask Sheet

I haven’t tried any of the products since I just got them last Sunday.  I am keen to try the Baviphat Snail Cure Mask Sheet, though. I know there is currently a snail craze in the skin care world and I wanna join in the bandwagon hehe. I am actually eyeing the It’s Skin Creme d’Escargot since I have read rave reviews about the product. It’s a bit pricey but if it works on my oily/acne/sensitive skin, why not, right? 🙂

Like I said earlier, the seller is generous with samples…

Samples!

… and freebies! Well, I asked Zhen if I can have one Lee Seung Gi postcard and she was kind enough to include not only one but three (!) postcards. Yay! Thanks so much!

Lee Seung Gi is ❤

I know I am on shopping detox but I just can’t help myself. I am still waiting for my ebay and 2 Gmarket packages but I.should.stop.until.I.get.my.second.Gmarket.purchase.  😀

Do you love shopping online? Care to share your experience?
