Gmarket cutisy galore

Today I received such a wonderful package from Korea, from a site called gmarket. Gmarket is somewhat similar to ebay, only for Korea. Fortunately, lots of sellers ship out their goodies internationally as well.

I found out about gmarket thanks to blogger Kathy from lotuspalace.blogspot.com. She is the expert in buying Japanese and Korean cosmetics, and her posts on makeupalley and her blog made me enthousiastic about Japanese and Korean cosmetics.

She has written a tutorial on buying on gmarket. Check it out here...read all the post about gmarket (about four) and you will be quite settled.

Okay, this was my second order. The first was a small one to try it out...My second was somewhat bigger. I received one big box, that included these little boxes inside.



Call me a copycat, but I really loved Kathy's post about Castledew's watershot foundation. It looked really good and precious...so I ordered that one. The seller did not include any extras, but the foundation was quite cheap, so I did not really mind.




I will swatch and try this foundation soon...The bottle is really big, me likey :)

Seller Tonymoly11 was really generous. I have already tried some Tonymoly on sasa.com, the BB night cream...I love this product as the last step in my nighttime routine



So I ordered 2 more nighttime mask, the whitening and the Q10 (also recommended by Kathy), and a BB renewing peel.



The mirror, the two masks with Korean landscape...the samples and other items are all freebies...how generous!!!

Talking about generous. I only bought a Jadilla blusher...and I got all of these lovely goodies....



Quite wonderful, eh...

Finally, from etudehouse I bought a lipstick and the fibre brush. I will review this brush soon. I already have 4 different brands of fibre brushes, so I can compare this one with Alima, Lumierecosmetics and Mac.




Wonderful, I cannot wait to play with all of these goodies....

I love the haul you got! I just placed my first G Market order on Sunday - still waiting for the entire order to get shipped out to me, but I can't wait! :)

Korean companies are so generous with their samples!
