Gmarket Haul #2

Hey guys!
I placed my second order on Gmarket last week. For a post on my first order you can click here.

My order shipped out on 5/13 and I received it on 5/16. The package comes all the way from Seoul, very satisfied with fast service. I ordered a total of 9 items, the total including shipping was $117 (around 135000 won). It might seem expensive, to pay all that amount at once, but it all rounds around $10 USD per piece, which is cheaper than purchasing at chain stores. So I recommend if you purchase from Gmarket spend a lot of money there to make the order worth.

Anyways her is my box.
Much smaller than last time, and this time my box was not damaged.

On the inside, all the items were nicely packaged.

Here is what I bought.

Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk in PK002. You can get it here.

 Etude House Tear Eye Liner. You can get it here .

Etude House Cookie Blusher in #03 Raspberry Tarte. You can get it here .

Etude House Color My Brows in #1. You can get it here .

This super cute thing was a free gift from Etude House, a heart-shaped mirror and a comb/razor for the brows. 

Swatches of everything. From L to R blush, liner, brow gel, lipstick.

Now I will show you the clothes, along with their respective stock pictures so you can compare.

Bought the short in the color Mint.
 You can buy them here .

I actually really like the shorts. I was expecting the fabric bit ticker. They were smaller than what I had expected, but since the back of the shorts is elastic it stretches, so it fits me well.

Also bought this in mint.
 You can get it here.

The cardigan is a little small. But I'm not planning on wearing it like that all the time. I always wear my cardigans unbuttoned, so it is all good. Fabric is a bit on the thinner side.

This was the most expensive piece I bought at 15800 Won. I bought the ivory one.
You can get the shirt here.

Paired with the mint shorts looks so pretty! I really like this shirt. It is thin obviously, it's chiffon.

 Bought the Lilac Color. I always have trouble finding lilac clothes.

You can find it here.

Fabric is thick, which is good because it will last me a long time with proper care.

 Bought this one in white
You can get it from the same link of the lilac shirt. I really like this shirt because summer is approaching and short sleeves are a must.

 That's it for my haul. I'm very satisfied with everything I ordered.

  11. Hi Monica, awesome post!
    I'm trying to get familiar w Gmarket before Placing an order.
    I'm wondering how much did you pay for shipping for your order? (did it ship from South Korea to the US?)
    I'm a big 2NE1 and BIGBANG fan, Im looking into buying merchandise. I'm wondering if the "free shipping" labeled items actually apply free shipping to the US, because there are also "free shipping on condition" items.
    . With your experience shopping on Gmarket, is shipping too expensive? Lol I feel lost, I need some guidance.

    1. i think i paid around $30 USD for shipping. I did shipped it from south korea to the US. They don't ship for free to the US.The free shipping label is only in from the seller's warehouse in south korea to the gmarket wherehouse in south korea. Shipping can really add up because they only use EMS, and price of shipping is based on the weight of your package. The more you buy, the more you pay for shipping.

  12. hi , can i ask you sumting...i've placed an order on 11 jun 2012 and they said that it will came on 16 june 2012 but it have not arrived im starting to get worried cos im a first time buying from gmarket...can anyone help me here...???

    1. I wouldn't worry too much, sometimes a seller might send a email saying that they are going to take a little bit longer than usual. If you package already shipped you can track your package. If you go to "my gmarket" on the right next to the sign in button, click on "overseas order" it should say if your package has shipped and it will give you your tracking number and info if you click on "tracking".

  13. cute, I love Gmarket :)

  14. How much do you weigh and how tall are you? the size charts confussse meeeee. thanks.~

    1. i'm very short, 5'1 my weight is 116. I guess as long as you are a size s/m in american clothes you should be fine ;)

  15. Awesome blog! Interested in buying clothes from gmarket, but I'm having a difficult time selecting the items I want since it's all in Korean. Can you help?
