Shops with bad service —

Benefit Cosmetics (international/US website): troubles with shipping internationally.

Spoiler

Their international shipping sucks
It takes months to arrive. Mine didn't despite waiting for two months. When I asked about it they said it must've been lost and made me choose between reshipping the items I bought or a refund.
I still wanted the items since they were limited edition holiday kits so I asked them to send the stuff to my US forward address. They replied that the items are out of stock (but of course! after two months) and refunded me. It took two months for the money to get back to my card, which is the bank's fault but it made things worse.

 

Shops with fake-products (DO NOT BUY)

Be aware of Ebay-sellers. Fake cosmetics are toxic and contains bad chemicals.

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!

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.

I can't apply make up to save my life. LOL

 

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

Do some one know of shops where they sell fake-products? so that we can prevent buyers.

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.

Black eyeliner or brown eyeliner?

 

Would it be weird to wear black eyeliner on the top lid and brown eyeliner on the water line?

Depends on how you pull it off actually, do you have an example?

 

and black eyeliner the best.

I think it's too harsh for daytime unless it's just on the top lid but I like to wear eyeliner on my water line so...

I'm a noob when it comes to make up.

Depends on your skin colour and skin tone.

 

Brown is a great colour for day-wear and for light make-up but its not very long lasting.

 

Black is really great for a bit more of a defined look.

I'm really pale and have hazel eyes so I think black looks harsh.

I also noticed that brown eyeliner doesn't last long T.T
