Cosmetic-Love Haul

Sunday, July 15, 2012

Hi everyone! I just want to apologize in advance if I'm not as active for the next month or so. A lot of things are happening in my personal life, so I am feeling a bit preoccupied at the moment. At the top of my list right now: moving - my lease ends in August so I need to find an apartment and pack everything up - and buying a car - my road test is Wednesday, so if I pass I'll need to start looking *sigh*

Anyway, this is a really backdated haul - actually a lot of my next few haul posts will also be like 2-3 months old. This was my first time ordering from Cosmetic-Love. Shipping time was very fast and I liked that they offer free shipping on all orders and had a lot of Etude products to choose from. They also provided me with a bunch of free samples and even included some promotional Kiss Note items with my Etude purchase. 

Here is what I got:
Skinfood Salmon Brightening Eye Serum
 Skinfood Salmon Concealer
 2x Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips-talk Lipsticks
Etude House Shini Star Clear Pact

I love the adorable packaging of the Etude House items! It's also cool that they included a promo poster and notebook from the Kiss Note CF web drama featuring Sandara Park and the boys from SHINee  ^__^

This isn't a sponsored post, since I purchased the items myself, but I just wanted to say that the site is trustworthy and I am very satisfied with shipping time, pricing, and the service I received. In particular, I really like Cosmetic Love because they carry a wide range of Etude products, which I generally don't see much of on Sasa's site.


P.S. Thank you everyone for joining my recent giveaway! I received an overwhelming number of entries, so it will take me some time to sort through them. I will try to announce the winner soon though! Also, I recently made a Facebook page for my blog, so check it out here!

  7. hey guurl, do you know if maybe Etude House, Sinfood or Holika Holika test their products or ingredients on animals? I know that Skin79 doesn't and I'm a huge fan of Skin79, but I don't know about these other brands. cheers ;)

    1. Hey! I'm actually not too sure myself, since most of the writing on the package is Korean and I don't know how to read it. This blogger did mention that Etude House and Skinfood are supposed to be cruelty free brands, but I don't think the actual companies have certified to this yet. Here is her post on brands that don't test on animals: http://littlemissmetamorph.blogspot.com/2011/04/no-to-animal-testing-and-lies-big.html
