Makeup & Skincare to Buy in Korea

Posted on 31-05-2013 | Tags: , , , , , , ,

This list is of the things I’m planning to buy or at least search for in my upcoming Korea trip; hopefully I’ll get to purchase a lot of the stuff in Myeongdong I’ve organised them by brand LOL

Obviously I can’t afford them all LOL. But I have a personal list so that I know what products are crap and what are good. I have heard people rave about most, if not all of the products listed, in both blogs & youtube.

All prices are estimates, in AUD. Thanks particularly to Koyuki Palace for a whole lot of information

    :3 That’s a pretty nice list Meg! Banila Co & Innisfree are impossible to buy here, better stock up on those!

    Omgsh, how did you do that?! The list looks so cool with all the tabs and everything haha

    But, hey with the mascara/eye/lip makeup remover… I use Revlon’s colourstay remover thingy. It’s like for both eye and lip makeup and it also removes mascara really well – including waterproof mascara! So yeah.. just thought I’d let you know; keep your options open

    This is what it looks like

  • Meg

    LOL Jenn! I found a really cool plugin thing HAhaha

    Oooh, interesting! I’ll probably have to give it a try, I’m actually running out of makeup remover D:
