Review: Mentholatum Sugar Lip Lipbalm in 02 Dancing Pink & 04 Rock'n Pink

♫ Bebe Rexha - No Broken Hearts (ft. Nicki Minaj)

Well, it's been a while since I last used a lip balm, so I was rather interested to find these Mentholatum Sugar Lip lip balms at my doorstep a couple months back.


Its formulation features brown sugar in the recipe, which works to nourish and smoothen your lips. It also acts as a natural humectant that seals in moisture and keeps lips feeling hydrated. Makes sense, as most - if not all - homemade lip scrubs have brown sugar as the main ingredient. I received two out of the four shades available in Malaysia: 02 Dancing Pink and 04 Rock'n Pink.

Review: Isa Knox Micro Foam Cushion Silk Cover #23 Natural Beige

♫ 傅又宣 - 爱.这件事情

As the saying goes, never judge a book by its cover, but when it comes to cosmetics, I am all too guilty of being attracted to the packaging first, above all else. If you're a fellow makeup hoarder collector, I'm sure you have the exact same sentiment. (~˘▾˘)~ So when I saw this beauty on Gmarket, I just knew I had to get my hands on it.


Get it I did in my Gmarket haul, and I am happy to report that it is every bit as pretty as in the product photos.


Oops, I think I forgot to formally introduce you to my latest love, the Isa Knox Micro Foam Cushion Silk Cover. There are two shades for this BB cushion, and the one I chose is the darker of the two, #23 Natural Beige. Isa Knox is a skincare brand under LG Cosmetics Korea, and this BB cushion is their latest offering for 2016. I can't read Hangul, so I'm not sure whether it's a limited edition casing, but gosh darn it the cherry blossom design paired with the pastel  hues of Pantone Color(s) of the Year 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity, is so pretty I could cry. ಥ_ಥ

Without further ado, let's begin the review!

Gmarket Korea Haul (April 2016)

♫ iKON - RHYTHM TA

Ever since my first Gmarket haul 4 years ago (has it really been that long?!), I've never purchased anything from Gmarket because buying directly was a very complicated process, and going through an agent was pretty expensive. Fast forward to about 2 weeks ago, when I discovered that Gmarket Korea was finally open to international buyers, and there was a special $5 flat shipping rate to Malaysia.


The rest, as they say, is history. My giant box of early Christmas presents Korean skincare and makeup goodies arrived within 10 days of payment, and I'm really excited to show you my haul. :D


I knew that consolidated Gmarket parcels would be packed in a big box and sent out together for international deliveries, but I was not prepared for how big it actually was! Σ(゜ロ゜;) It's fun to open the box and see a bunch of smaller boxes waiting to be opened though. (≧∇≦)

LauraLeia x Japan: Tokyo Snacks Haul!

♫ DISH// - KLAP

Earlier this month, I took a long-awaited (and much-deserved) vacation to Tokyo, Japan with my brother and his friend. Needless to say, it was all very new and exciting, since it was my first (but definitely not last!) trip to one of the busiest cities in the world.

I won't bore you with my travel photos (that will probably come in another post - if ever - since I'm still sorting them out) but what I am going to share with you is my crazy SNACKS haul! I mean, we're talking the land of Pocky, Tokyo Banana and weirdly-flavoured Kit Kats, after all. NOT buying back any snacks would be a crime against food. ಠ_ಠ


So, let's begin! (Warning: Picspam ahead!)
