I want to know something:

Why many of you have that fixation with Korean cosmetics?

No, it's not in the negative sense. I just want to know the reason and maybe I can join the club, too.

You can find great products with good price, nice packages and I like to be a make up hipster, you can't find Korean brands in my country.

And because of light bb cream shades! I'm super pale and it's hard to find products which are light enough. I tried western bb cream (Biotherm) few days ago and it was shit, bad colour, feels bad, bad coverage.  :unsure: And very pricey!

 

where can I find matte eye shadows? like not the glittery kind? a whole palette would be ideal.

 

I like to use Inglot eye shadows, but I don't know which countrys sell it. It's perfect because you can choose every colour in your palette.

That's cool.

No one does at first.

 

Hence why YT is so awesome with all those VLOGS 'n shit.

I'm actually NOT a fan of most Korean cosmetics at ALL.

They have nice packaging but very few are actually good.

I would only recommend the faceshop to my friends and TonyMoly to my enemies.

:happy:

I use some. For skincare!! 

Innisfree has some good stuff and I like etude house's sleeping packs and facial masks.

If you want to order order from G-market the prices are good because a lot of other stores sell them over-priced.

 

I like this thread. :D

 

And OMG thanks for sharing that BeautyBay website.

yeees of course I hope you like beautybay

IKR? I'd put them with a note that their international shipping takes forever + possibilities of shipment getting lost in transit.

 

I remember stumbling over a fake shop and I was so shocked at how many fakes they have I started buying from trusted stores only.

They were selling Urban Decay, Too Faced, MAC and Benefit. They usually sell UD's Naked palette at $7-12  :wth:  and honestly if you see someone selling it any less than $35 then there's a high possibility it's a fake.

 

Gotta be careful with Ebay sellers too. There are lots of fakes that are sold as genuine products for a lower price. Unless the seller states it's genuine and offer to give your money back if it's not then I don't recommend buying from there.

Fake cosmetics are horrible they put all sorts of things in them :/
