Blog Makeover!



After a full year hiatus from blogging, I've decided that it's time for me to finally make some much-needed changes to my blog, and rekindle my passion for writing about my thoughts, hobbies and interests.

So please bear with me while construction on the blog is ongoing, and do stay tuned for a fresh new look! 😊


Let's Celebrate Althea's 1st Birthday! ♥

♫ 五月天 - 派对动物

Wow! Can you believe it's been only a year since Althea Korea was introduced? I was one of the lucky ones who managed to get early bird access to their online store, which sells Korean cosmetics and skincare, and until now I am still super impressed by the range of products, affordable prices and excellent customer service offered by the Althea team.


Well, Althea is celebrating its 1st birthday on 20th July 2016, and you're invited! (๑>◡<๑) From 20th to 31st July, 2016, Althea is having a whole host of great deals and promotions that you definitely won't want to miss!


Review: Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar in #11 Juicy Pop

♫ JONGHYUN (종현) - Dress Up

A few months back, Laneige released 4 new shades of its innovative Two Tone Lip Bar, as well as the new Two Tone Shadow Bar. The Two Tone Lip Bar in #11 Juicy Pop, in particular, was sold out as soon as it was released, due to the fact that it was used by Song Hye Kyo in the highly popular Descendants of the Sun k-drama.


I was lucky enough to snag one online from Laneige Malaysia when it was restocked, but never got around to share my thoughts about it - until now. (Procrastination is a scary thing, lol) Cut to the chase, let's get on with the swatches and review! :D

Sephora Malaysia Black Card Sale Haul

♫ EXO - Monster


Let's begin by saying... I don't really shop at Sephora. *le gasp*  

Wait, hear me out. What I mean to say is, Sephora is really fun and amazing and there are plenty of outlets in the Klang Valley that I can easily visit, but my inner scrooge simply cannot in good conscience pay full price for an item that I know I can get for cheaper elsewhere. *coughonlinecough* Which is why when Sephora Malaysia had its Black Card member sales last month, I couldn't resist taking a look, and ended up buying a few things from its online store that I may or may not need. (⌒_⌒;)

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.
