Korean cosmetics on ebay! I'm addicted!

I recently prefer some bb cream from a korean company on ebay and it's truly amazing. So them I ordered some lipstick, eyebrow pencil and mascara which are equally as impressive and cheap compared to UK prices. I'm told their cosmetics are are years ahead. Anyone else using korean products???? I've even ordered some face masks.

I love their bb creams, they have much better coverage that the UK ones, though you have to be careful as they are also big on 'whitening', so they can take the colour out of your face! I'm pretty pale anyway, so it doesn't bother me too much. I think Missha and Lioele are fab, especially Lioele 'Beyond the Solution' bb cream. Skin Food are also good. I did try a Skin Food face wash which ended up really drying out my skin, so have since just stuck to the bb creams. But, yes they are great, and even with postage are pretty cheap.

I haven't tried any but I would like to, I'm especially interested because of how pale I've heard they go in BB creams and the like. I am very very pale and have a lot of trouble finding anything pale enough for me and on the rare occasion I do, it's yellow toned so totally wrong for me as I have pink undertones not yellow

I ordered the Missha BB cream and am blown away with how it makes my skin looks and the other revelation was the eyebrow stylers/ pencils that are kind of triangular shaped in a push up pen that create an amazing brow. Better than anything I've tried and I've tried nearly every eyebrow pencil on the market.

Would you mind sharing links to ebay sellers you have bought from? I'd love to try this but don't know how if they would be any good!

I have bought from these ebay stores and not had any problems:

Usually they offer free postage. And a mind boggling range of stuff!

Avoid avoid avoid!!!! Do not but these. They are not governed by the quality control that western countries are. If it looks too good to be true it probably is! Your skin and possibly eyesight is far too important to put this unregulated crap on it. Ask yourself - why is it so cheap, and free postage as well?

South Korea has pretty stringent quality control I believe. Plus, I have very sensitive skin and have not had any issues with them ever (apart from the face wash, which I've mentioned).

You can buy Dr Jart in Boots, so it can't be that bad for you!

Missha products are fantastic. I usually stock up when I'm in Japan so I'd never thought to look on ebay. DD uses the bb cream as western foundations are too dark for her and I use the eyeshadows and pencils, the face masks are amazing as well.

Dumb question but how do you know what colour to buy?

be very careful if they claim 'whitening' (Asia wants paler skin, not to look like their handbags). Most whitening ingredients are a con, but the ones that do work damage skin.

Thank you for the links, the 'excellent castle' had me confused!
