One of my close friends told me that THE FACE SHOP from Korea opened up at two locations in Toronto and being the Korean cosmetic/skin care junkie that I am, I was dying to go. Luckily, I had to run errands in the busy city today so I stopped by the store in Pacific mall (pmall for short) to pick up some items.
The White Mud Nosepack has been on my list ever since Pam from xpinkxx raved about it. I tried looking for it in Hong Kong but I flew back to Canada with empty hands. The same friend that told me about THE FACE SHOP recommended me their nail polishes. Although they streak on the first coat, the overall product is well worth the mere $1.75CAD. Not even WetnWild is this inexpensive. I picked up PK101, a cool baby pink and I might give it to my other friend who's in need of some new polishes ^^ The last item that I bought was the Raspberry Roots Depuffing Eye Gel. I've never used eye products before so a depuffing one is a nice way to start.
I'm not sure if this is true at the other location, but all the sales associates spoke Korean so if you can do that, I suggest you do. Apparently they're even nicer then and you get a lot of samples. Don't forget to sign up for their points card! Down side to that is that it's location specific -.-;; like if you got it at pmall, you can only use it there. Another tip is that try to talk to the SAs and be friendly. If you're from out of town, let them know discretely. The cashier gave me double the samples which is way better than the service at Holika Holika that's only a few stores away.
In the phone department, I bought a clear hard iPhone case for $5CAD and got the bumpers for free! I'll definitely be doing some DIY on it~ I went to 4 stores to find the best price and $5 was it. Cases for the 4/4s were as cheap as $2! So grab them while you can.
That's all for now~! Good night!
