Chris 6

For those of you who are unaware of the exceptional fashionista, Chriselle Lim, seriously, you’re missing out.

Korea is pleb heaven! Samples and freebies are given out at almost every store, even if you don’t make a purchase!
The Korean term for this is 서비스 ( Service). It might seem strange for a store to give away so many samples and promotional products, but it really does help them increase brand loyalty! After using some of these samples, I’ve been saving up for the the full size!

Especially for these adorable lip tints by the Korean makeup brand Etude House!

The colour stays on your lips all day, even while eating and drinking!

If you hate reapplying, then this stuff is for you!

Look for stores in your country that give out samples and promotional freebies! You don’t wanna end up wasting money on a cool new product that turns out to be useless!

You’ve got to try before you buy, right?

~Don’t worry, it’s not a beauty haul of any sort, you need to have the products in order to review them. ~ Kuma’s Pearls of Wisdom

The focus is primarily on those dreamy objects for your luscious lips that we desperately want but cannot afford (for now, obviously). These items are dazzling and drool-worthy, and what’s more you literally eat them everyday, and they gots no calories, yo!
