Korea Haul

I still have a bit of photos to edit from my trip in Korea so this will be a short little post about the shopping haha. I bought mainly cosmetics and souvenir items and I wanted to share my little haul.

I bought quite a lot of cosmetics on this trip but not a lot of clothes (the ones I did buy though is in the laundry haha). These particular ones are from Nature Republic and there was a really great deal that day; it was a buy 10 sheets get 10 sheets free. I ended up giving these out as souvenirs. While I was in Korea, I needed a mascara and ended up with one at Holika Holika, which I might review in later posts. Of course, I also went to Etude House, which seems to be on every other street, and I bought another color of my favorite lip tint and a cushion for one of my younger cousins. The great thing about Korea is that most of these shops are all on one street (like Myeongdong for example); it’s really a beauty junkie’s heaven.

At these other shops, I bought quite a lot. Since I was in Korea, I just had to buy the IOPE cushion and ended up with 4 total (3 were souvenirs LOL, I’m not that crazy… yet). I don’t know if anyone noticed but Innisfree is my all time favorite Korean cosmetic brand so I had to stock up on cleanser, eye liner, cushion refills, powder, etc. As a gift from my BF’s relative, I got another cushion at Banila Co. which seems to really endorse the CC line; she also gave me the color control base and makeup remover.

In addition to cosmetics, I bought this coloring book that’s pretty popular; I believe the book was featured in a drama that IU starred in but I never watched it. At the Dongdaemun Design Plaza, I bought this 3d like puzzle of a tower that I didn’t get a visit; the puzzle was actually quite fun to build so I kind of wish I bought a few more. I also bought this notebook as a souvenir; it was actually one of the few things I bought in Hong Kong that wasn’t edible.

I was like a child in Korea haha. I had to get these Gudetama toys at the coin machines. I also got 6 to 7 Line character hand warmers (only 3 pictured). The socks there were super unique so I had to buy a few as souvenirs but I’m not too sure who would wear the Psy one haha. In tourist areas, I found some traditional looking items such as bears dressed in hanboks, bookmarks, more socks, and cookies (which I bought at the Duty Free Shop).

Though I didn’t purchase that many, I’m still very excited to try out all my new cosmetics. Lots of reviews to come!

  1. Haha, yes that drawing book was in 製作人 where Kim Soo Hyun and IU starred, she would always start drawing when she needs a peace of mind.
