I am back with (yet another) haul! I’ve fallen into the pattern of always splurging a little before telling myself to go on a spending ban…. only to have amazing deals come my way and I just pounce at the chance! This haul stemmed from the intention to only buy one item which led to more and more…. I did try to minimise my shopping card. I really did :p
Beautynetkorea is a popular kbeauty site where they supply a lot of items I wouldn’t be able to find locally (or at nearly the same price…). I made the purchase amidst the stressful and caffeine filled exam weeks towards the end of the semester and this gift from myself to myself arrived on the day I passed my driving test !!! #score
Ordered on Jun 1
Shipped on Jun 2
Arrived Jun 24th
Worth the wait ^_^
1. BBIA Choco Last Auto Gel Eyeliner #V1 Brownie – A waterproof plain brown gel eyeliner because I’ve had my current one for almost two years :’) It’s quite budgeproof and at times a bit difficult to remove but glides on ever so well.
2. BBIA – Downy Cheek #5 Downy Coral – A fun coral blush that’s really travel friendly. I’m not big on blush (pretty but I hardly wear them) so I’m trying out something subtle. Formula is crazy, practically melts at your fingertips.
3. ETUDE HOUSE Tint My Brows Gel (5g) in #3 Gray Brown- saw the hype going around these and it really fascinated me! (why not give it a go ah?) I tested it out on my sister and myself for around 2.5 hours before removing and it’s holding pretty well on the third day. Definitely saves me filling in a lot of my brow but touch ups are still required.
5.ETUDE HOUSE Drawing Eye Brow (0.25g) #1 Black Brown and #2 Gray Brown- kbeauty staples that have been sold out at wcosmetics almost all the time! Bought two because it was buy one get one free and in different shades because I’m not sure which one suited me better.
6. TOUCH IN SOL Corean Glow Special Kit- ( and yes it’s Korean with a ‘C’) –
I first discovered TOUCH IN SOL wandering through the aisles of a city Priceline store and saw a cushion compact :O like woooot. A sales assistant promptly came to me and gushed about how she loved their Flawless Skin Top Coat foundation (really cool packaging look it up!) It’s the first Korean brand to hit Priceline shelves and I found them on Beautynetkorea. The price difference is crazy !!! The same foundation on Beautynetkorea was around $14 USD or $20 AUD… Most TOUCH IN SOL products in Priceline are around $40-$50 when you can get them on BeautynetKorea for no more than $15USD. Idek.
I picked up this kit because it’s awesome value for money and I can try out different products. The BB Creams are 20mLs and CC Cream 15 mL which makes 75mL overall of product for $17USD. From swatching these, they’re similar to the skin79 bb creams in terms of texture and shade. My first impressions favour the waterdrop BB cream ~
Last product (not pictured) is the Tonymoly I’m Real Tea Tree Sebum Pore Lotion (200ml). I tried out a sample of the lotion and fell in loveeee!
And that’s the haul!! What products are you loving lately and have you tried Beautynetkorea?
I'm trying to ease into using Korean products, and it looks like I've a lot more to discover! I've never heard of the BBIA brand before, but their products look promising. Are they any good?Jorj | Mad Cherry
There's so many brands out there and you'll come to recognise the popular brands like the ones in this haul! bbia is mainly eyes and lips and yes quite promising! ^_^ I'm enjoying the eyeliner so far but definitely look up their eye pigments. Super sparkly wah *o*
Cute haul! So crazy the markups of Touch in Sol in Priceline! How do the prices compare to W cosmetics? That blush looks so pretty! Congrats on passing your driving test too!Tasha // shiwashiful.
Thanks Tashaaa! – the feeling is glorious. I was grinning like an idiot driving by myself for the first time…and yaass I am all for cute products !! haha, most of these products you can't get at Wcosmetics (they don't sell Touch in Sol) and there's the problem with accessibility/sold out shades so I'm okay with waiting for an order because prices are reasonable.
I used to buy from Cosmetic Love but I've converted to a BeautyNetKorea fan and just splurged my money there. It's so bad, I say to myself that i'll splurge once and then still continue like a month later because there's always sales going on >.< http://www.kelkelxo.blogspot.com
Naisu! I have heard of Cosmetic Love but never tried. I have previously ordered from ibuybeauti and I think it's all up to which brands /sales are around. And OMG I KNOW I KNOW! my level of self control for beauty hauls is pitiful :') You are not alone !!!!
