Pretty lil Face Unboxing #1!

First post! I guess I have to start with a disclaimer (I’ve seen other bloggers do it).

Disclaimer: Everything in this post was purchased. Nothing was provided in exchange for review, and this is my honest opinion.

(I am also active on /r/AsianBeauty as aleebsi.)

Okay, that’s out of the way. Now, onto the unboxing!

Do you see that adorable packaging? It matches their business card!

I also love how efficiently they package things. It bothers me greatly when beauty e-retailers over-package stuff (Amazon, I love you, but I am talking to you and Julep, yes, specifically you guys. Is it a Seattle thing?).

I made this purchase from Pretty lil Face ( on October 8, 2015. It shipped on October 12, 2015, and arrived October 15, 2015. This is my second purchase from the Canada-based website. They have a decent selection, great sales, and their customer service is fantastic! The layout of their website is very clean and easy to navigate. The only downside is that the prices are in CAD (Canadian Dollars). This wasn’t so much of a problem for me, because I grew up in Maine and I currently live in North Dakota, so I’m always aware of the exchange rate. This is becoming a review about their site and service, so I’m going to put a pin in that and do a full review later. Onto the goods!

These are the purchases I made:

That means it’s an average of ~C$8.93 (equivalent to USD$6.87). Great deal.

I know there’s a lot of Etude House in there… but I’ve noticed that they are the most available K-beauty brand internationally.

Every order also comes with free samples. Mmm, freebies~

Unfortunately, some of the boxes got a bit smushed. The products inside were still perfect, and we just throw the boxes away, so… not a big deal.

I will definitely be reviewing some of these products, like the Etude House Fresh Cherry Lip Tint (already took photos of the boxes for posterity), and the Proof 10 Eye Primer. I previously purchased the Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion in W24 Honey Beige (the darkest shade—I really wanted to try this cushion compact craze), so I wanted to get the refill while it was on sale.

12088119_1021886984501159_5545480079148099783_n 12079327_1021887031167821_8151874218261195331_n 12088025_1021887004501157_4169527769976028782_n

I’m really excited about this purchase, and can’t wait to try all of the products! In my previous purchase, I got samples of the Tonymoly Red Appletox Honey Cream, the Etude House Baby Choux (in Mint and Berry), and the Etude House Baking Powder Cleansing Foam. Clearly, I liked the samples. xD I still have some lingering redness on my face, so I hope the Etude House AC Clinic Intense will help clear up my skin, and the Etude House Mint Choux base will help tone it down in the meantime. The HolikaHolika Heartful Moisture lipstick is more matte than I expected, so that might end up being my new nude matte! And I got another HolikaHolika Jewel Lights Eyeliner (this is my fourth one—no regrets, they are amazing and there will be a review).

Expect reviews of Pretty lil Face and some of these products in the near future (if you check the Reviews pages, they’re already on the roadmap)!
