Haul ★ Korean cosmetics & Brandy Melville


I keep forgetting to update, even though I have drafts posts = u=;;.

A few weeks ago, I ordered a bunch of Korean cosmetics from e-bay, and they have finally arrived! I find e-bay the cheapest method of obtaining Korean cosmetic/skincare products, although some people might deem it shadier than an actual website. I purchased the Mizon all-in-one snail repair cream from bestbuy77, and the rest of the items from f2plus1.

Both of those e-bay stores offer free shipping without tracking. They offer tracking for a small fee, as well as EMS. Like other sellers, they also include free samples with your order :3.

Top 4 from the left are from Bestbuy77, and the rest are from f2plus1.

I will be posting reviews of some of the items over time, since I don't want to make this post overly picture intensive.

Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Colour (lip balm + blush) in PK002 Strawberry Chiffon Cake & OR202 Peach Sugar Cake.

They smell so good ; u;
Etude House Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base SPF25/PA++ in #3 Peach Choux & #1 Mint Choux. The packaging is pretty legit since the container isn't light, and doesn't feel like cheap plastic.

The Peach one smells like peach, but the mint one kind of smells like sunscreen in my opinion o_o.

Etude House Juicy Cocktail Gradation Nails in #1 Screw Driver. The purple one is really pretty, but it was sold out :<.

It's Skin Babyface Blusher in #4 Sweet Peach & #3 Romantic Rose. Isn't the face so adorable? ; A;

Even the puff is cute~

It's Skin Macaron Lip Balm in #1 Strawberry. I'll probably go back for the apple one too.

The Face Shop Aura CC Cream SPF30, PA++.

It comes with a sponge applicator that I won't use. The CC cream comes out from a small hole (that is covered by the applicator), when you push the plastic button-looking thing.

The Face Shop Lovely ME:EX Design My Eyebrow in #1 Gray Brown.

It comes with a spoolie (is that how you spell it?) too.

Lioele L'Cret Magic Lip Stick SPF14 in #2 Elegant Purple, #3 Lush Green, #5 Fresh Orange.

Tony Moly Luminous Pure Aura CC Cream SPF30, PA++. Bought this one in case I don't like The Face Shop one.

Mizon All-in-One Snail Repair Cream. I've read tons of reviews on this product that praised it as if it was a godsend made of unicorn blood or something magical like that. So I decided to get over the snail part, and try it out e ue;;. I bought the bigger one because it's a better price than the smaller one.

The thing I love most about Japanese and Korean cosmetics is that their packaging is so adorable. Like seriously, I'm a total sucker for cute packaging.

Lastly, I bought some clothes from Brandy Melville (tank top, cardigan, dress).

That's how I coordinated the outfit. 

That's it for my haul :D. I'll probably buy more stuff from e-bay next month to spoil myself for my birthday LOL, since I never hold parties and whatnot. 

I'll probably make a post on Japanese & Korean cosmetic/skincare sellers in the near future for my own records, and possibly your interests if you want to know where to buy something, and not get totally ripped off by marked up prices 8D.

Please let me know in the comments if you want a review of something in particular!

Thank you ^ u ^. Yeah, it's a tank top. I couldn't find an uncropped version on the website, so I tried my luck at the store. Their items can be inconsistent from store to store, and from the website too D;.

I will review those ones soon then :D.

something that I love about asian cosmetics is the fact that it just makes every girl's makeup collection so much prettier!

Thank you for following :D

I know right? Like packaging can be such a deal-breaker for me. Etude House and Tony Moly have some of the most adorably packaged items too!

Ahh cuteness overload! I love the packaging for the Etude House and It's Skin products!

Etude House's packaging is always to die for. The packaging for the Etoinette collection products is to die for!

I love the face on It's Skin's babyface line aha, it's so adorable~

Nice haul! I love how cute and pretty everything looks. Those Lioele L'Cret Magic Lipsticks look interesting, I actually had to google them to find out they change colours on your lips (as I was wondering if the green lipstick would be green on the lips as well.. ;)).

Thank you ^^!

Oh no, aha, I guess that's the shock factor. Like you would be kind of weirded out if someone whipped out a green lipstick, and started applying it. The green one actually smells kind of citrusy, unlike the other two.

Tony Moly and Innisfree have colour changing lipsticks too :D.

Korean cosmetics always has the cutest packaging. If possible, could you please do a review on Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Colour and also It's Skin Babyface Blusher?
Looking forward to your reviews!

Oh, I'm following you on GFC now!
