As usual I purchased from a lovely and well trusted seller on eBay since the UK has not yet discovered the joy of East Asian cosmetics. The seller always gives loads of nice samples and they're always wrapped in really cute packaging. Sometimes it's in cellophane that says "To My Lover" on it (tee hee hee), but random quote aside it's really nice of the seller to package it like that.
I counted and in total I now have 14 BB creams to comment on from Missha, Hanskin, Skin79 and some others. I will be doing full reviews on them all once I've given them a full chance (meaning tried them all individually for at least a week or two). I can say now that Missha seems to be my outright winner but it has been changing continuously depending on how my skin has been feeling.
So apart from the BB creams I also ordered an eyeshadow palette from Etude House's LUCIDarling collection. There are a few sets to choose from:
I got set number 3. The seller packaged it like a sweet!
The actual palette case wasn't as fancy as I'd hoped it'd be, it's just a pink plastic case (that actually smelled like industrial plastic and chemicals - bleurgh). But it had a brown bow opening which is nice.
|Here's the back of the palette. I heard that most Korean cosmetics include the production date - so that means this particular palette was produced quite recently :)|
