Etude House Haul: Precious Mineral BB Cream ALL Day Strong #3, Golden Ratio Face Glam #02, Missing U Hand Cream Panda, & Color My Brows #01
1. Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream All Day Strong SPF30/PA++ in #3 Sheer Flawless Skin
14,000 won ~$12.45
Compared with Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream in #27 on the Left (Etude House on the Right)
I can't talk about the qualities of this BB cream because it doesn't match my skin tone! At first glance, it looks like it matches compared to Missha's but it is just too beige/pink toned for me. In certain lights it looks like it matches, but overall it doesn't work with my skin tone : (.
2. Etude House Color My Brows #01 Rich Brown
6,000 won ~$5.34
Unfortunately, this did not work out for me either because the shade was too light! Should've known -__-. Ah, the pitfalls of shopping online.
3. Etude House Golden Ratio Face Glam #02 Pink
12,000 won ~$10.67
This is one of my favorite items! I love how it makes my cheekbones glow! On the directions it says that it is a base, but I only use it to highlight my cheekbones. At 40ml, it will last awhile especially when I only need a teeny tiny dot for each cheekbone. The brightener on top is 4g and is to be used on the eye region.
4. Etude House Missing U Hand Cream #3 Panda (Peach)
4,500 won ~$4.01
I love this, it's so cute! The smell is delicious and it's so adorable! The consistency is light and absorbs easily. My only problem with it is that it only has 30ml/1.01 fl oz (the cream is at the bottom in the pink part, the panda is just the cover), but it's cheaper than the other hand cream I was using (L'occitance Shea Butter hand cream in Rose).
Etude House Freebies
Volume Bling Mascara
I really like the way this mascara coats my lashes. I don't know if it's waterproof and I haven't tested it out, but I do know that it's hard for me to remove. It gets really flaky! The cool thing about this is that the other end is glitter!
Box of cotton pads
Wool Detachable Hood Safari
As you can see, this jacket is humongous on me! My dumbass didn't check the measurements of the jacket and instead based it on the looks of the model T_T. I wanted a jacket that was this style and had a thick, soft lining inside. I'm not sure if it'll be worth it to try to hem it, but we'll see. The only places I see my self wearing this outside is in the snow or an outdoor concert in San Francisco or something : /.
400 Mizzpointsafari JK
I got this jacket because there was one on Stylenanda with a similar style but a $150 price tag -__-. I like this jacket because it was the style I was looking for and the fur trim feels nice. The things I don't like about this jacket are that the fur trim easily detaches from the buttons that hold it in place, the buttons are badly sewn on, and the jacket attracts lint and fur easily. Also note the cheap lining inside. It's really unnecessary because it gets in the way and detaches from the buttons easily.
Caramel Brown Cardigans
1. VO17 ~$13.25
2. VO16 ~$11.48
I had an obsession over this "Caramel Brown" color after I got a cardigan with the same color from Zipia. The first cardigan is a bit long for me (not checking the measurements again -__-). I like the second cardigan the most. My only problem is that the material of both cardigans makes it pill easily, but that's what I get for getting cheap cardigans. *sigh. At least my "Caramel Brown" obsession is satiated.
Overall, it was an interesting first haul from gmarket. I've already made my second order, but this time it's only beauty products.
