Good thing that we get to talk through facebook.
Anyways, I was looking For Etude House & when i saw it i was delighted by the color....it's so pink & girly but oh so small! I hate stores like that. You won't even have space to maneuver & go over their products without bumping to the person next to you.
These are my Etude House purchase
- Nail Polishes
- Fresh Nailwash Safe Polish Remover
- Mascara Remover
- Cleansing Dream Fresh Cleansing Water
- Color me Nude Lip Concealer
The prices are really so cheap! Way cheaper than The Face Shop!
On to my rant...tsk tsk tsk
I don't want to rant as much as possible, but i need to!
I promised myself that i won't be buying any eye make-up so i looked at their nail polishes all the while chatting with the SA about their lip concealer. She said that they don't have the lip concealer yet.
Too bad because that is what i wanted the most. I don't want to buy at Ebay & wait for weeks to get my hands on it.
I was bummed when i heard that... but i still went ahead & looked through their selection. Imagine my surprise when i saw the lip concealer sitting at the end of the row!
It's either the SA that i talked to doesn't have an inkling about their products or that she was just so tired. Either way, i went about & looked again. I saw their Cleansing oil & was asking what's the difference on them since the other is said to be 'light' & the other is 'moisture' (or something like that)... I was asking if both are ok for oily skin. She said that they are just the same & the only difference is the color of the bottle.
I'm sure that a company won't just use the same formula..put light & moisture on the box..put it in a different bottle & sell it as the same?!
my Aunt Fanny!
That' why i decided to not buy their Cleansing oils (just yet) & bought the Cleansing Water instead.
Now another thing....I was asking the SA about the make-up remover. Etude House has a make-up remover with the blue 'oil' on top (the lip & eye make-up remover) & the pink one (the mascara remover). I asked her what's the difference & she just said that it's just the same & the other one is only for the eyes while the other is dual purpose..for lips & eyes.
I asked her what do they need a separate remover for that if it's called a mascara remover. I was surprised when she said that you use the pink one for removing mascara only. Then you use the blue one to remove the rest!
Anyway, i still bought the pink one just so to test it out. Oh my stars! If all the SA's are like this, i'm not sure i'll be asking for advices ever. She is nice & accommodating, no questions about that though not knowledgeable enough to ask for the products. At least the The Face Shop SA's are really well-trained & they sure know their products!
I'll still be going back to Etude House because there are a couple of items i want to buy. But i think i'm better off shopping alone than ask for advices.
On the other hand, I meet with a multiply seller to get the MAC lippies that i bought. I immediately paid for it & was happy with my purchase.
Yay for being able to buy it at a cheaper price!
The colors look almost alike,huh?
I bought the Hug Me & Jubilee Lustre Lipstick. I'll be providing swatches when i'm not so busy anymore. I have to say that i like it because it's really creamy, but i find it too sheer.
That would be my haul story for today. I'll try to post some more but since i'll be really busy for the next couple of days, i might not be able to.
Product reviews would start next year.
I wish everybody a happy holidays & may your Christmas be really happy & bright!
