My Korea Haul Part 3!

OK, OK, OK, this is SUPER late!!!!

I was only planning to make two posts about my haul in Korea!
However, I went and bought something at the duty free!!!!

The duty free at Korea is priced in US dollars!
They do take Korean Won (as well as Japanese Yen, Chinese RMB, etc), but the exchange rate at the store is not very good!
It’s best to pay in US dollars, or to exchange money to Korean Won at the foreign exchage before shopping!!


On to what I bought!

The Face Shop White Tree EX Whitening Mask

The Face Shop Wrinkle Stop Neck Treatment
I’ve used this for a while and I’m really liking it!

The Face Shop Wrinkle Stop Eye Cream


The Face Shop White Tree EX Eye Serum
(Notice a pattern? Yeah, I need to take care of the skin around my eyes/neck!!!)
ANNNNDDD the highlight of my shopping!!!!

MAC eyeshadows and a 217 brush!
Satin Taupe, Honey Lust, and Carbon!

I was not planning to buy any MAC stuff at all!
BUT guess how much these were????
Eyeshadows: $16
(I know that is more expensive than the US, but they are normally $25 in Japan!!!)
217: $18
(even cheaper than the US!!! This is normally $32 in Japan!!!!!)

I was going to get a 187 brush (it is a whopping $70 in Japan!) but they didn’t have any… Oh well!!!

One non-beauty related item:

A Starbucks mug


I collect Starbucks city mugs from cities I’ve been to on business trips.
Instead of the Seoul one, I got this one with ancient writing (similar to Kanbun in Japan).
Is it just me, or are the recent ones kind of simple? They used to be a whole lot cooler…

Off to go play with my MAC shadows!!

  10. You’re right, the new Starbucks cups look way simple. :( I don’t collect them but I do have a Vegas one and just saw the new ones and were disappointed. I do however like yours b/c of the cool ancient writing!

    I see you had a happy time hauling…woot woot! :)

  11. Those are nice goodies!!!

  12. Wow nice hauling!! You got a good deal on the MAC brush, so nice.
    Also I wish you can show your starbucks mug collection! I like collecting stuff too.. hehe. The one you got is nice but as you said, simple. Do you collect starbucks tumblers too? The Japanese ones are so pretty.

  13. great hauls!! girl! I love it that you got them for cheaper rate! it is super expensive in japan!!!!

  14. Nice haul. Wow $70 for the 187 brush?!! Thats crazy!!

  15. I needs me some MAC Honey Lust!!! Satin Taupe is a fav of mine. I can’t believe how expensive MAC is over there!!!! But y’all have Hello Kitty and other kawaii stuff so it’s equal :)
    I’m like finally catching up on reading blogs…. I’ve been crazy in ATL and crazier since I got back trying to figure out when & how I’m moving….
    P.S.
    You don’t need wrinkle cream you have pretty Asian skin, which if noticed has some similarities of black skin IT DON’T CRACK!!! :)
    XoXo

  16. Congrats on your haul! I am a fanatic for eye and neck cream too..it’s nevery too early!!

  17. I am a big fan of Honey Lust…so glad you were able to get MAC items at a good price, especially the 217!! You know that’s a Must Have brush!! Ahh now you make me want to have a second one though, hehe.

    I agree with Kendall, you have pretty skin! But those creams look and sound like awesome items, and The Face Shop seems to carry some pretty interesting things! Yay for your hauls!

  18. Nice haul – how do you like the eye/neck creams? I always try to use any excess serum/moisturizer on my face and spread it towards my neck, but I think I need a more specific product :)

    nice MAC haul too! carbon’s one of those must-haves, but it can be tricky to use – less is definitely more for that one!
