Hauls: Gmarket, Silknaturals, Sephora

Ha ha! Yesterday was a lovely day in the life-of-a-cosmetic-junkie...I got some serious items by mail, and bought some seriously discounted sets at Sephora...

I received my Korean goodies...I have already been lusting over Kathy's and Inspiringbeautycreator's pictures of Etude "I can't stop smiling"-items and I was waiting anxiously for my order to come in, and finally...I received mine....



I only ordered the pearl blusher and the Cleansing Dream light oil...If I knew that etudehouse would dissapear from gmarket I would have ordered more...

I also ordered a Lioelle set and two Glissade lippies...I will review them in the new year (he he, so nice to say that).

I also received a small silknaturals.com haul. I love their natural lipsticks and mineral blushers! They are incredibly flattering.




The lipstick on the right is the Pink Gold lipstick from Avon Color Rich 24K lipstick line...We do not have any Avon representatives in our country anymore, so I ordered that one (and Rose Gold) from ebay...
By the way, it was Jen from A beautyful Sentiment that made me buy these lipsticks with her wonderful post and swatches of the lippies (here).

And if I did not have enough, I also visited the Sephora and they had a brilliant discount on several Christmas-sets: 40% off!!!! Wowza...I bought the Too Faced Glamour to Go set and the Cargo Holiday Nights collection.



Now I want to go back to Sephora and purchase the Benefit Love, Peace and Glossiness set and the Makeup Forever Back to Black collection...they are also 40% off. Unfortunately, I will not be able to go to Sephora today: I have to wait untill friday. I hope they are still available then.

The last picture is not makeup related. It is my dear boy playing on the frozen lake! The skating fever has struck our country and everybody and their grandma feels the need to skate on ice.


(btw, he did not fall down, he is just checking if the ice is sturdy enough for my weight, LOL).

My oh my - i was complaining about the weather here till i saw this. Your BF is a sweet 'un for checking out the ice for you! Did you get to skate too??

Did you get the Lioele BB?? I love that stuff - it's one of my faves. On I also have the shimmer base. I need to order more before I start my cosmetic diet.

Hi Glow, I haven't been on natural ice yet. I did skate a month ago on manmade (mancreated??) ice. It is still a bit dangerous to skate, but lots of people are neglecting that warning and just put their skates on...
The Lioelle BB feels really good and I love that it is almost unscented. I like the colour as well, so it might be a hit for me. Still, I need to roadtest it a bit longer. I loveeee the pink highlighter fluid! That product is FAB!

Hi Jojoba, I know...I have to travel for half an hour to get that set...but I am bound to the house today because of NYE. Also, traffic is a disaster, so it could take me one and a half hour. But I really have to restrain myself not going...ADDICTED to cosmetics :D

Hi Yumeko, the sephora in our country (Netherlands) is having such a ridiculous deal. I do not know if your country has such a deal. I hope so for you :)

Hi Miss Sandy, Thank you for visiting me!! I bought these items on global.gmarket.co.kr which is similar to ebay, only Korean based :D, find the label gmarket to find out more about this site. But be aware, it can be addictive!!!

Ohhhhhh wow, I love your Gmarket haul :D
I see that you got more Liolle lipgloss, how pretty !! And I like Etude's "can't stop smiling" also.
Can't wait to see your review.
If you don't mind, how much was shipping? and How long did it take to get a package?

Happy New Year !! :)

Sorry for commenting on such a super-old post, but where did you purchase the Lioele-products? I've been looking all over, but I can't find lioele anywhere. I'd be so happy if you can still remember from where you got them!
