My Koreadepart #3 Haul!

Since I have had my new job as a beauty consultant, I've had a little more money to play around with so I did a big order at Koreadepart! This is my third order from them and I love them! Their prices are on par with the original prices in Korea and the shipping only makes them just a little bit more expensive, probably only $1 extra per item so it's a lot better than other, overpriced stores. As with both of my previous orders, I invited a couple of friends to join the order to lighten the shipping and customs load! After I paid £50 customs, the package arrived at my boyfriend's store on my day off so I actually put as little makeup on as I could get away with, jumped on a bus, grabbed the box, jumped back on the bus home and spent some alone time with my goodies!

Enough talking, let's get to pictures! I will do reviews of each item as I use them and have the time - let me know if there's anything you'd like me to review sooner rather than later!

Okay, so this is all of our items together...my items are pretty much the top row and the last third of the bottom row. XD

One thing I was really excited about trying was the full Snail & EGF Repairing skincare line by Secret Key. I have used the cream before so I restocked on the cream and added the toner, essence and emulsion to it. They also do an eye cream but at the moment I'm using Clinique's All About Eyes.

The packaging for the cream has slightly changed - the jar is slightly more rounded on the bottom, that's all.

P1090577
I've used Dermal's Snail Essence sheet masks before so I thought I'd try another variation. This is the Hyaluronate type for dry skin.

P1090578
I thought I'd try some sheet eye masks too whilst I'm at it! Gotta keep looking young and virgin blood only helps so much...Dermal Rich Moisture Eye Patch.

P1090604
Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Deep Moisture Sleeping Pack. I'm really making sure my skin is as hydrated as possible!

P1090491
I've also decided to start taking sun protection more seriously now that I'm 20 and not getting any younger! I got Skinfood's Gold Kiwi Waterproof Sun Cream SPF50 PA+++. I apply it after my regular skincare routine and before my makeup. I also use a powder with SPF50 in it but I don't reapply during the day. Maybe I should start but I'm unsure how much powder I actually need to use to get the labelled SPF...

P1090497
Holika Holika's best selling Jewel-light Waterproof Eyeliner in White

P1090615
Missha Signature Extreme Cover Concealer - I'm sick of my concealer creasing and fading throughout the day so I looked for the highest coverage concealer possible! I've used this two days and I'm already in love.

P1090509
Tony Moly Face Mix Cover Pot Concealer - I have the Face Mix Foundation but I haven't used it yet as I'm waiting on my other foundations running out. The Missha concealer above was $12 and this one was $3 so I bought both to see which would be better - I used this today but it creases and fades slightly throughout the day like some other concealers I have so I'm gonna stick to the Missha one and this one will go in my makeup bag as an emergency one.

P1090499
Skinfood Black Bean Lip Line Pencil in Pinky Red. I love the lip brush on the other end, I use it for precision lipstick application!

P1090548
The Saem Rouge Essential Moisture Lipstick in Blood Red

P1090513
The Saem Saemmul Flower Lipgloss in Rose

P1090562
Something I've been wanting for ages now, purely for the novelty factor! Skinfood's Honey Pot Lip Balm - it's actually really good!

My friends got a few items too, including Holika Holika Magic Pole Mascara, Syn-ake Anti-Wrinkle & Whitening Eye Cream and Face Cream and Etude House Aloe sheet masks.

P1090650
Our total order amount came to almost $300 including shipping - look at all the samples we got! This is the most samples I've ever received in an order, I think they're stepping up their game to compete with other webstores. I'll always love you, Koreadepart! These will be divided up between me and my friends accordingly but I haven't decided who gets what yet.

P1090654
Dermal Acerola Cherry Collagen Essence Mask, for regeneration, moisture and nutrition - sounds promising!

P1090658
Skylake Refresh Massage Cream and Natural Foam Cleanser

P1090668
Skylake Green Energy Essence - Koreadepart actually gave us quite a few Skylake samples, they must be a bit underrated or trying to promote them recently.

P1090671
Leaders Clinic Mediu Pure Feminine Cleanser...yes, you read that right. Feminine as in 'feminine'. I feel like I have to keep this out of principal - I don't wanna give any mixed messages handing my friends feminine cleanser haha!
P1090673
Nature Republic UV Lock Flower Water Gel Sun SPF30 PA++

P1090676
Regencos+ CC Ultra Sun-day Control Care Cream

P1090689
Holika Holika Skin & Good Cera Ultra Toner & Emulsion - these look really cool, I've never had this sample type before!

P1090694
Tony Moly Floria Whitening Mask Sheet

P1090700
The Saem Urban Eco Harakeke Cream Ex

P1090704
Holika Holika Dessert Time Pineapple Pudding Pack - the Pineapple type is used for exfoliation due to pineapple's natural AHA properties.

P1090707
Banila Co. it Radiant Multiple CC Cream for Men

P1090710
The Saem Marseille Olive Moisture Cleansing Foam - I'm interested in this as not many cleansing foam promise to be moisturising...I mean, I don't expect it to be super moisturising but at least not as drying as other cleansing foams.

P1090712
Banila Co. Prime Primer in the Classic type.

P1090716
Skylake Oriental Herb Cleansing Powder

P1090719
Isa Knox X2D2 Original Recovery Emulsion

Koreadepart now offer cheaper standard airmail shipping for packages under 2kg so I'm going to try and keep on top of replenishing my products and make smaller, regular orders! Especially if I love the skincare and Missha concealer as much I hope I will!

Do you buy Korean cosmetics? What are your favourite products? I'm always looking for new ones to try, let me know in the comments below! Let me know if there's anything you'd like me to review too!
