It's Skin Color Play Sugar Gloss
Price : 3000won (I think)
Color : 08
What's with all the Korean Makeup Brands Having sugar lip glosses? Holika's Sugar syrub gloss,  Skinfood's honey gloss, and more.... It's odd.

Why I picked color 08, an orange pink, I don't know......
Maybe I was trying to find something that goes with my Canmake cream blush that is
really peachy.....

Regardless, the Color is completely different on!!!You can seen in the picture it doesn't look orange (or peach) at all!!!

I do have very pink lips, but still! It basically looks clear with a little bit of sparkle!

It has a lovely taste/scent, it's fruity and lasting.  It's reminds me of some sort of candy. Maybe that explains the name.... Honestly, I love a lipgloss that taste nice, I end up tasting it, it's good if you are getting friendly ;) , and it's just a nice change from lipstick!
It starts out thick, but melts a bit when on. So it applies thinly,  and doesn't last at all. It's also not very shiny. It becomes more matte very quickly.

All in all it's not a successful lip gloss. The color is too ambiguous and weak, the taste is nice, but it isn't shiny and doesn't last.

The Faceshop Apple Hand cream

The Faceshop Apple Hand cream
 Price : 4,400won ($4)
Size : 30ml
I may be addicted to hand creams…. My hands always end up so dry! I think It’s because I hand wash so many dishes.

A lot of Korean brands have been coming out with Fruit shaped Items, possibly ripping of the Japanese B&C which has been doing fruit shapes for ages.
So has Tony Moly. Now Bavi Phat is into, and the Face shop, and I am sure I have seen stuff at other shops!!

The Faceshop apple hand cream smell divine!  It smells like apple, still like perfume, but there is a freshness, and a realisticness to the scent that makes it enchanting.
The cream itself is really nice. It’s surprisingly white(Most moisturizers tend to be cream colored). It absorbs well, and has an almost gel-cream like texture. It does leave a bit of a greasy layer. I know some people hate that!
It’s really not bad though, it just leaves hands a bit slick. Just a bit.

All in all it’s a really nice hand cream, but other than the scent it isn’t anything special!

Help! What are these for??????

Hi! I need your help :D
I bought the Holika Holika Egg soaps without knowing how to use them!
I love Holika stuff that much!!!

So do you know what they are for??

The picture shows people rubbing them on their face.....
See? They are rolling them across their faces!!!

Am I supposed to use the like a facial soap? Lather and wash?
Or are they hand soaps???
Or are they supposed to be used dry????

And why are there 4 different kinds???
Are they meant for boys?????

I am guessing charcol is for serbrum removing....
But what about White egg(What does that mean?Is it made from eggs?), red clay and green tea???

Oh, and is that CN Blue in the picture?

Thank you for you ideas :D

Etude House - Bottle!

Etude House Pump bottle
Price 3000won
Contents : None!

So this is not a very exciting purchase, but I was super excited!!! Why? Because it is PERFECT for Konading (It's a verb because I say so :P )
So this little bottle is empty, which makes 3000 won a bit expensive...... I'm not so keen on the pink, especially since Holika sells a lovely purple one in stores(Actually all of the Korean in-store brands seem to sell their own version!), but not online! So I had to settle for Etude house pink.

But since the top flips up, and it has a push down release, it is just so easy to use!
It is such a pain to try and tip nail polish remover onto a little Q-tip, especially when your nails aren't perfectly dry! I always end up tipping some on to the floor..... It drives me nuts!

I bought 2 bottles, one for eye makeup remover, and the other for nail polish!

And I am happy!

More details on my g-market haul!!

So what I spent on G-market was $240 in Stuff, and $60 in shipping.
This is super reasonable in my opinion since I bought over 30 items (40 something in fact), including 5 glass bottles!!!
I sent a tiny box to Korea from Canada, it cost me $80 (express post!) I sent it the day before I ordered stuff on G-market, and the package I sent still hasn't arrived! All that was in it was baby clothes!

So first up, what I bought from Etude house. Almost everything I bought is either something I already have, but LOVE!  This is some of the best stuff Korea has to offer!
 -Sleeping pact - Pore tightening ( There are 3 kinds, I already own the other 2, best sleeping packs EVER!!!)
-Sun Guard SPF  35
-Moistfull Toner and Emulsion ( My second bottles!)
-Moistfull Gel cream and massage cream - BEST MOISTURIZER EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Second bottle!!!)
-Lucid Nail glitter nail polish
-Cherry tint in pink - I already have red, it's my favorite lip tint!
-Juicy pop lip gloss
-I'm Jumbo Pen liner
-Happy Tea Time wash - Lemon
-Yogurt Peel Cleansing foam in Fruits mix - 3rd Bottle!!! Awesome cleanser
-Golden ration highlighter in Pink - I have the gold, it's gorgeous
-An empty pump container

-Moistfull sheet mask
-2x Baking powder cleanser  30ml (A huge sample size!)
-Petit Bijou body lotion and body wash ( I hate the baby powder scent, but they are big at 30ml!)
-Aloha Make up bag (It's kind of Ugly......)
A box of  cotton pads (I love these for removing tough mascara, the ones they -sell here aren't as good!)

 I LOVE Holika!!!! I am SERIOUSLY so excited that they have a g-market store!!!
-SPF 50 Spray - I used this in Korea, it's awesome! Since it's an aerosol I thought there was no way they would ship it, but they did!!!!!!!!!!!!
-Apple Shine Peeling Toner
-Apple Shine Turnover essence
-Magic Pole mascara (It looks so cool!)
-Egg soaps (What in the world are these for?????)

Holika Holika gave awesome freebies! A whole travel kit with toner, emulsion, BB, sheet mask, tooth paste and tooth brush!!!!
Plus, a 2 step whitening sheet mask

-Mangowhite Cleansing foam
Samples - 3 power 10 essence samples

-Clear Water  Lip and eye(makeup) remover
Samples - Red appletox honey cream, tomatox massage pack, flower energy foam cleanser, AC control acne cleansing foam

Tears - A Korean Brand I don't have much experience with....
-Foundation (Not a BB like I thought :( )
-Lip gloss
-2 eye shadows
-pressed powder
Freebies - NONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This has NEVER happened to me!!! I only spent $3 on the cleanser from It's skin, and they gave me 3 little samples!!!!! I bought  4 things from Tears!!!!!! Blah :P


Beauty world Nail Cocktail - two sets of 3 nail polishes to make a gradated look. The pics look AMAZING!!!
Freebies - 2 nail files, sheet mask and bra straps!

-Dahoo nail protection covers - SO WEIRD :D!!!!
It came with a free Hair thingy....

-Arm sleeves - For protecting the arms from UV rays

-Konad clean pad set - To make Konading more convenient
Free - Little orange slice decals and white crystals

-Skin 79 sort of - My favorite BB cream, but not sold by the official Skin79 sellers, just some random person...... But it was a lot cheaper.....

Car Decal :) I love it! They even gave a little coffee cup decal as a freebie!

The Sellers,
In case you aren't familiar with G-market(or haven't bought anything from there yet!), all of this stuff was bought from different sellers.  So all the Etude house stuff came from the same mini shop, but all the Holika Holika came from another shop.

I've added links to all the mini shops I used for this order. I would recommend all of the EXCEPT Tears, the Foundation was all leaky and gross, everywhere on the inside of it's box.  
All the other sellers wrapped things beautifully.
