Mini eBay Haul

In this country, imported products cost way more than they should. Taxes, expenses and the like all figure in, so stuff like cosmetics, even drugstore brands cost 2, 3 or more times what they do where they come from.

That's not necessarily bad. We should be thankful that there are companies willing to bring great products to us. It's definitely cheaper than going overseas ourselves. It also gives our local products a fighting chance.

Anyway, while it's true that it costs a great deal for companies to bring products, to our country, it must cost a lot less for individuals to do so, because you can get a lot of the stuff available in stores for much cheaper online, particularly eBay. Let me show you what I got on my most recent transaction:

 
* Hairbrush with ceramic barrel- I had been looking for a ceramic hairbrush everywhere. I read somewhere that it's great for taming unruly hair with or without heat. This brush also claims to have natural boar hair bristles and ionic tourmaline, which fights frizziness.


* Wet n' Wild Ultimate Brow Color and Set in Chocolate- A pencil and gel duo. our sisters on GT have been raving about the WnW brow kit and I wanted the Color My Brows gel from Etude House but it's always OOS. I'm hoping this will curb my lemming for both, at least for now.


* Cover Girl Eyeslicks in Midnight Metal (top) and Cover Girl Smoothers in Pink Ice (bottom) - both are gel eye color sticks but I'm not sure about the difference yet.

 
* Cover Girl Smoothers eyeliner in Slate


* Wet n' Wild Mega Eyes single eyeshadows in Sensual Sage (top), Cream (bottom left) and Fine Wink (bottom right.)- more single eyeshadows. Can't get enough of them.


* Cover Girl Eye Enhancers single eye shadow in Aubergine Queen- purple eye shadows are particularly irresistible


* Styli-Style Flat Lipliner pencil in Madison- I thought it was cute.

Watch out for reviews. Thanks for reading!

  2. My sister and I love shopping at Ebay. We usually buy bags (XOXO, Nine West, Kenneth Cole are some of our favorite brands). We also use Ebay to sell our pre-loved clothes and bags. :)

    definitely waiting for your review on the WnW Ultimate Brow Color and Set. I was eyeing on that product when I bought some stuff at Meg's shop on ebay, but I changed my mind and didn't get it.
