As we have mentioned time and again, we are only selling original items, unless we specifically said otherwise.
We do understand your concern though because there are plenty of people selling "supposedly original" perfumes online and it is hard to tell the difference. There are ways for you to tell the diferrence.
The obvious ones, it must have a box and wrapped in cellophane wrap. If it says unbox, it means it is not original. The cellophane must not be too loose with no excess of glue.
If it is properly boxed, checked if the code underneath the barcode on the box similar to the ones on the bottle. This code tells from which country it is from and for what country it can be sold to.
Last but not least, if it is too cheap, normally it is not original. Especially if it is selling at a discount of 50% or more. The cost price normally is around 70% of the retail price.
Anyway, we are no experts but we do not sale fake items. You can read more on the internet on how to spot a fake perfume but we like this one appended below. I have not asked for permission, so any credit should be given back to the original author.
At the present time when the piracy is increasing day by day it is recommended to take these points into consideration while buying a perfume, which will help you to recognize the authenticity of any perfume.
1. The performers should be in the original box, it has become very easy to verify it through the Internet, simply put the name of the perfume into any Internet search engine and you can easily see the packaging and box of that perfume.
2. Most perfumes have cellophane paper around the box but it is not necessary that everyone has it; it all depends on the house designer. Cellophane is not a seal guaranteeing the authenticity of the perfume.
3. The cellophane should not be glued to the box and the box should have thin cellophane, mostly pirated perfumes have thick cellophane.
4. Most of the time the code engraved on the perfume bottle and the code on the box should be same.
5. If a bit of a perfume is being sprayed on a piece of paper than its smell should last for more than 24 hours.
6. The spray bottle should be in perfect condition and should not leak, as this indicate that the product was adulterated.
7. Upon shaking the bottle the bubbles that are made by the movement should disappear in a span of approximately 10 seconds, after it is shaken, if not, there is a possibility that it is pirated.
8. When you shake the bottle it should not submit any junk, dirt or any other foreign substance. It should only contain liquid.
Keep in mind that the perfume can be smelled different from department store, when you smell it in your home, because the environments are different and they influence the flavor, in addition each perfume develops its own aroma after some time.
The level of acidity of the skin, body fat, smoking habits and consumption of drugs can affect transpiration and hence affects the fragrance of perfume.
It is advisable that perfume should be closed properly and should be kept in a cool, dry place away from direct light.
We ask you to destroy containers and boxes of the perfumes after use, as they are the main source of raw material for the pirates who often can make a pirated perfume look original.

To the MISSHA BB Cream lovers, I will be receiving MISSHA BB Creams and BB Boomer very very soon!
At the moment, we will be offering only two shades :
1) Natural Beige - No.23
2) Light Beige - No.21
The reasons are I imported direct from Korea and they don't sell No.27 and No.31 in Korea. Those are manufactured specifically for the US customers. No worries, I am searching for high and low for the suppliers from US. So, behold!
To those who have heard of BB Cream but not really sure what it is, here's an excerpt from Wikipedia on this magical thing!
"BB cream, also known as Blemish Balm, Blemish Base or Beblesh Balm, is a cosmetic item sold mainly in East and Southeast Asia.
Originally formulated in Germany by Dr. med. Christine Schrammek, it was initially used by dermatologists to help laser surgery patients protect, soothe and refine highly sensitive skin while providing light coverage for post-laser scars, acne and other blemishes.
BB creams come in a variety of different formulations and qualities. Some are said to have skin whitening or brightening properties. Others are anti-acne, some are anti-wrinkle, some are intended to even out skin tone, and yet others to lighten blemish scars. BB creams are sometimes used like a primer under foundation, and if tinted may even replace foundation and some newer ones will have functions of primer, foundation, moisturizer, sun block, pore minimization and skin refining together which can save time and money in make-up.
Brands on the market aside others include BRTC - Bio Remedies Therapeutic Cosmetic, Dr. Jart, Lioele, Skin Food,Etude, The Face Shop, Missha and SKIN79.
In recent years BB cream has gained a huge following for its skin-regenerating functions and is now also widely used in Asia to provide natural-looking skin coverage. It has been named "the secret of Korean actresses", which gained it large exposure in Asian markets."
Basically, it is something like a foundation but better! Most BB Cream sold offers only one shades of color. However MISSHA understands that human have different skin color and they had introduced 4 shades of BB Cream.
It was one of the hottest BB Cream sold in Korea and so I found just recently (how embarrassing) in Malaysia! So, come & grab one!
