So I was on hiatus for a bit and was testing out recent skincare stuff when my retail addiction bug bit me. I went on several online shops in search of some BB cushions and landed in Testerkorea as their prices seem very decent (even when shipping is added). Since my country’s customs allow less than $30, I didn’t want to take the risk and bought under that limit. It was my first haul and I didn’t want to be slapped with extra fees.
Here are the details to my order (made from Central Europe);
Order date: Saturday 1/11/2014
Shipped: Wednesday 5/11/2014
Arrived: Wednesday 12/11/2014
I am extremely impressed. The order did take awhile to be packed and completed (given I ordered it during the weekends), but shipping only took a week! 🙂
In case you are worried, small items are packed into approx 15cmx 9cmx 6cm boxes and labelled as “Fancy goods” at $20 value. lol! I love that phrase 😛
The box was no bigger than my 2 palms but they manage to squeeze everything in professionally, with free samples, bubble wraps and packing ribbons ❤
Well, my first mini haul consists of;
|INNISFREE Ampoule Intense Cushion SPF34 PA++ 15g||20,000||1||20,000|
|Y.E.T Pretty Mini Eyelash Curler||1,500||1||1,500|
|MISSHA Oil control Film 50ea||1,760||1||1,760|
|Y.E.T Oil Control Film 100pcs||1,500||1||1,500|
|It’s Skin Babyface Natural Eyebrow 0.3g||2,000||1||2,000|
Shipping costed me 4,380 won.
Everything totaled 31,140 won or $31.78 (Testerkorea’s conversion $1= 980won).
Lets get to the unboxing already!
I bought like 5 items only (other than the BB cushions others are just small additions). 🙂
This is the new Innisfree Ampoule Intense Cushion SPF34 PA++ 15g. I will write a whole review post about this soon! Need to test run it for several days at least before I can conclude anything 😉
I am very excited to try it. Innisfree has great reputation when it comes to cushions and this 2014 new arrival claims to ‘offer moisture and dewiness up to 24 hours in order to fight the dryness of the winter.’ It is just what I need now that the weather is changing. Other sites were selling this for $24 at least, so even with shipping this is still a little cheaper ($20.40).
Just added this because my old lash curler’s silicone strip is like coming off. The Y.E.T Pretty Mini Eyelash Curler is a portable version of the normal lash curlers. Too bad it makes a squeaky sound when I clamped my lashes. It will take awhile to get use to this…I don’t think it is a good curler. It was cheap tho, at $1.53.
I also needed a new eyebrow pencil (with brush) so I went around the site for abit and found this It’s Skin Babyface Natural Eyebrow 0.3g for only $2.04! Mine is the 02 Deep brown.
The manufacture date 제조 was labeled as 20140929 so freshness is guaranteed! So just fyi 까지 or anything that is not that two words for manufactured means expiration 🙂
I also picked up 2 oil control films because I usually use these to fix/mattify my makeup (makeup base-> facial mist-> blotting paper). It’s my personal trick but I am just too cheap for a makeup fixer spray 😛
The Missha Oil control Film (50ea) is only $1.80 and it looks like it is of decent quality as compared to the other pack I bought;
Okay, this Y.E.T Oil Control Film (100pcs) is hands down the cheapest blotting paper I have seen on the site ($1.53) but it is as thin as a brown baking paper and I think for use-and-throw, I don’t mind the quality. I just need something to get my shine off!
And huzzah! They were so generous to throw in 5 packets of samples. I love samples. Who doesn’t? 3 of them are from Skinfood too ❤
I would most definitely buy from Testerkorea again, and I have already put through another order lol! My only peeve is that they advertised for a free gift (first purchase) but it wasn’t included. I hate it when companies run a long event and doesn’t take down the banner after the deal is gone, just so that they can rake in more profits. Oh well…
Stay tuned for for my Innisfree cushion review~ I’m excited to try it out asap 🙂
