Store Review: Style Korean

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with Style Korean! Style Korean used to be called Honest Skin who I reviewed back in June, so I was really interested to see whether they had picked up their game since my last order was less than satisfactory.


Website Practicality
Style Korean's website needs work. I actually really like the little black sidebar, it's really functional and handy! They have duplicate tabs on the blue top bar for no reason though. It's difficult to create a log in (they saved the Honest Skin sign ups so I had to have my password reset) and the site doesn't seem to save the addresses properly. It's not hard to navigate, but it's a little annoying.

Price Comparison
Style Korean has almost the lowest prices I've ever seen, but the shipping price isn't fantastic, making this store quite expensive to shop at. If I was to purchase anything from Style Korean, it would be something that is so ridiculously low (from clearance section or weekly discount) so that it counteracts their high shipping price.

Style Korean
Cookie Blusher $4.44 + Shipping $5.95 = $10.39

Roseroseshop
Cookie Blusher  $4.00 + Shipping $4.17 = $8.17

Cosmetic Love
Cookie Blusher $5.90 + Shipping $0.00 = $5.90


 Shipping and Packaging
I placed my order on the 17th of June and my order was shipping on the 19th. My shipping cost $5.95USD through Korea Post for the 4 products weighing 90g. The shipping was tracked, and arrived at my door on the 1st of July. It was well wrapped and nothing was harmed during shipping.
Products
I was persuaded to shop with Style Korean due to their clearance sale! The prices were seriously low, so I thought it would be the most risk free way to try their services.
Though these blushers were super cheap, they're seriously lacking pigmentation. These swatches are all done with three or four applications, not just one which makes the quality a little more shocking.
The third shade is brown. Literally. It's not my favourite shade and I'm not sure how much use I will get out of it! This is the most pigmented out of the three shades I purchased.

The fourth shade is supposed to be peach, but swatches a very light pink. It looks cute, so I'm excited to see how this looks on my skin!

The packaging of this mascara is super cute and I'm really excited to use it! ^.^


What I Love
- Super cheap clearance prices
- (Mostly) cheap regular prices
- Well packaged shipping
- Average length of shipping time


What I Don't Love
- Website is still a little buggy
- Shipping is expensive
- Still don't fully trust them after shopping with Honest Skin


Final Thoughts
Although nothing went wrong with this order from Style Korean, I'm not sure if I would shop with them very often because of my bad experience with Honest Skin (who is the same company, just re branded). The prices on clearance are fabulous, and juxtaposed with the high shipping cost they do even it out to be quite a good deal. Personally, I'd rather shop somewhere that has better customer service and spend a couple more dollars.

I would recommend shopping with Style Korean if they stock a product you can't find anywhere else, have the lowest price or are offering free shipping! ^.^

  1. I agree that they offer the cheapest price but the shipping fee is a bit pricey. It took almost 20 days for the package to be delivered which I find a bit slow, I guess. :)
