After 2 months of long wait, I had FINALLY received my package from Tester Korea. I was so scared that I won’t be able to receive my precious stuffs.
I was searching for the PowerPuff Girls makeup collection and somehow the Internet lead me to Tester Korea. TK is a website that sells Korean makeup and skincare. I never heard of this shopping services so I decided to give it a try.
The reason I waited for almost 2 months is because I ordered this back at end of November last year. And I should know better than the Year-end is the worst time to have something shipped in because it was the Holidays season so thousands of shipments are moving across the globe. The other reason which I think why my order came late is because I opted for the Standard Shipping (with tracking) and not Express. I was trying to save shipping cost for only 3 items and I guess I took a risk. According to their website, delivery to Region 2 will take between 1 – 4 weeks but may be up to 10 weeks.
I think I am disappointed with the box though. They taped the box with sellotape all over the box to make it more sturdier. It gave me the impression that they just reused old boxes, although it could be a new box that they are using. On my box, I have 2 tracking numbers which seemed odd. My package transited at Hong Kong and another tracking sticker was placed from Hong Kong. I wondered if that is the reason why my package got super delayed.
I bought 3 items as a first trial. The 1st one being MISSHA Soft 5 Layer Cotton Sheet. It was on sale for about $1.50. I preferred 5 layer cotton when removing makeup as it saves my makeup remover. Unfortunately on the left side of the box it was already ‘opened’, as a result of the way the item was placed inside the box. However, nothing has been used.
The other 2 items are eyeshadow palettes and are rather fragile items. I am glad that they used plastic bubble wrap to secure the item.
I ordered the limited edition peripera eyeshadow in collaboration with the PowerPuff girls and Aritaum’s Styling Eye Palette in Number 2. Thankfully no breakages for the 2 eyeshadow pallets.
Last but not least, the samples. I assumed they give out random samples, can’t wait to try them out.
In summation, I would give TK another go with the same shipping method to see if that is the amount of time I have to wait for my items, or maybe with Express shipping. Thank you for reading and take care!
