Hauls from Gmarket - May

It's been a long time since i place an order from gmarket. At least 5 months? and once i came back from Korea, i couldnt resist place an order!

I bought 3 pairs of shoes (in need of new shoes!), 3 bags (oops) and some 'wants which is not needed'

Bought some stuffs from Etude house and Holika Holika :) My mom and i has fallen in love with that brand!

Free masks given!

Finally a cute toiletries bag for me to bring when i go over to malaysia. I always have to repack! I need a fixed bag to bring! Hate packing! T.T

My 3 pairs of shoes! I realized i dont have any green shoes!

Shipping was very fast. I ordered on Friday and i received them on the following Thursday :) Thumbs up!! 

Going to haul again! I miss shopping from Gmarket :)

Here are some EOTDs that i tried over the week :)

I just started wearing Geo Mimi lens is brown. I thought they were damaged as they stings my eyes real bad, but after few days of soaking and cleaning, finally they do not irritate my eyes :)

My review

On packaging

I always prefer a tube like packaging for BB cream as it is easier to bring around and less wastage of BB cream. Ginvera BB cream has a small size of 25ml in a small tube packaging which allows me to bring for travels easily with its small size.

On BB cream

The bb cream is very watery and light weight and can be applied on easily. I had a few trouble applying it for the first time as it is very watery and i accidentally squeezed too much out. (^^)"
It contains SPF 30 PA++ which allows me to skip applying the sunblock step. The formula is not sticky and contains a very nice fragrance (i think it is green tea?). If you can't stand fragrance in your makeup items, better not try, but i really like it.

The tone of the bb cream is more of nude tone, and it only  comes in a shade.

a 4.5/5 from me!

(this is how watery it is ^^")

Ginvera Aqua Whitening Cream with oil control

Enriched with Green Tea Essence, Thanaka Extracts and Biogel, it provides the benefit of skin whitening, UV protection, oil control, lightening of spots and acne scars and prevents the formation of pimples.

My review
My first try on the drugstore whitening cream and it surpasses my expectations :) It is very light-weight, no sticky residue left on my face and very moisturizing. I'm still not very sure about the whitening though. It has the same fragrance as the bb cream which is my favourite right now.

My skin felt moisturized and fortunately it does not leave a white patch of moisturizer like most others do. It sinks in my skin easily. I'm currently using this day and night and it did not disappoint me.

The only concern i have was the SPF. It would be better if it contains SPF.

I would give this a 4/5 :D

A tube of 40g retails at SGD16.90

I did a EOTD too! (it has been sometime since i did one =D)

Holika Holika Lipsticks

 I bought some Holika Holika lippies when i went for my trip previously to Korea. I did not take a final haul photo as i only remembered when i packed half of them in T.T. Therefore, i shall do a review of them seperately in here.

I was attracted by their packaging and the colors they have were pretty too!

I got a total of 3 colors.

Although they look vibrant, the colors are quite sheer on my lips and created a soft tint of lip color. Really love them!

Have you tried Holika Holika items before?

NYX Runway Collection Palette Smokey Eyes

This is a very handy palette for smokey eyes and it reminds me of Sleek palette Storm (Storm has more different shades of color). the pigments for this palette is not as good as sleek palettes, but for the price, it is quite worth it.

If you are looking for different tones of blacks and greys, this palette is worth the try.
