You Finally Made it, Hurray!

When I got home from work and from driving my sister to and from the dentist today, a wonderful surprise greeted me. My package from S.Korea had arrived yaay! Finally, the long wait and the thrill of anticipation are finally laid to rest.

As I have mentioned in my post a few weeks ago, I have been caught in the sticky web of online shopping via E-bay. I love shopping over E-bay not only because it offers a wide array of products which I can't find at the local shops but also for the substantial price difference. And let me tell you, I save heaps on items bought over E-bay than through the shops. But of course, there is a downside: it takes sometime before these items actually reach my eagerly waiting hands. 

These are the two items which I ordered from different sellers but they both arrived at my doorstep at the same time.

Purchase #1: My Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream #23 which I won for $7.88 with FREE SHIPPING! I have been waiting with bated breaths for this to arrive! Lately I have been so into BB Creams and when I tested it, I was very pleased with the results and I'm sticking to this product. The seller was very generous enough to include 3 freebies: 2 sachet/trial sizes of Missha BB Cream and 1 sachet of Missha Super Aqua Refreshing Cleansing Foam! Ahhh... I love freebies haha and it's a good way for the seller to make sure I patronize his online shop (Yes, the seller is actually a guy lol).

Purchase #2: This one, I reckon, is a steal. This is a Rosee Waterproof Mascara (Black) which I won for $1.95 and..... FREE SHIPPING! This one had no freebies, but I don't mind, the price was rock-bottom anyway. If I had bought this from the local Korean Cosmetics shop, I would have paid double, or even triple the price. 

I have a couple of items I am currently on the watch, waiting patiently for that last few minutes where I decide to jump in the bidding frenzy or make a pass.What I put into consideration when I bid are: how much I am willing to pay for a certain item and how badly I want it. Mostly it's the latter, then I consider the former and then make my decision. 

So there you have it my dearies, that's my E-bay haul. Thought I had to wait a few weeks for them to arrive, the wait was so worth it. I am extremely happy and pleased with the products
