Now that I’ve sorta kinda gotten the hang of ordering from Gmarket, there’s simply no stopping me. I gathered some orders from friends and colleagues, enough to make the shipping worth it, and happily placed my second order in two months.

You must think I’m crazy for this Gmarket Haul barely a month after I returned from Korea. But in my defense, this order was requested by my friends and colleagues and I just tagged along. lol.. Believe it or not, it’s actually my first time ordering directly from Gmarket. I’ve taken part in sprees before and tagged along with other friends’ orders. But this marks the momentous occasion as my inaugural Gmarket haul!

I finally got down to sorting out my Korea haul! Which is when I realised that compared to last year’s epic haul, I’ve actually been rather a very good girl this year! I was much more targeted and specific in what I wanted, but on the downside, I did want some pretty high-end brands which kinda evened out the score. Some of these are for friends/family so it’s not all for me!

I’m back from Korea! *Waves*

I spent an awesome week in Korea, mainly in Seoul and Jeju – sightseeing, eating, mountain climbing and of course shopping. =P As with all holidays, this one passed much too quickly and now I’m back home suffering from withdrawal syndrome. More about my Korea hauls to come, once I’ve had the chance to unpack and sort my purchases from CPs..

Today’s post was requested by dear Maria – she wanted to see what’s in my travel makeup/skincare pouches as I’ve had an insane couple of months of flying in and out for both work and leisure. Four trips in fours months is a bit of a record, even for me.

Travel Buddy – Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX

February 16, 2012 at 11:52 pm | Posted in Beauty | Leave a comment

In recent years, I’ve become a bit of a frequent traveler, be it for vacation or for work. I always have a tough time packing my skincare/cosmetics bag to bring along as I like to travel light (leaves more room for shopping.. lol..). But there are some items that have become essential parts of my travel regime, such as Laneige’s Water Sleeping Pack EX.

And the hauling continues when I’ve finally reached Korea!! Seriously, Myeongdong is probably a skincare/cosmetic addict’s heaven. It’s streets and alleys full of any and every Korean skincare brand you can think of. And they come in various different outlets! You can probably find a Skinfood/The Face Shop/Nature Republic/Tony Moly at every corner, with each one competing for your attention and $$. I spent almost 2 days in that area and both days we had to stop only because our loots were getting too heavy to lug around.. lol..

I usually post the name of products as the title.. But this one was kinda long so I just used the name of this particular shade instead.. But you can see from the box it’s full name.. lol..

I haven’t posted much about lip products, mainly cuz I don’t use them much. I have dry lips which I tend to chew on subconsciously, which doesn’t encourage lipstick wearing since I’m likely to have chewed it all off within the first few minutes. But I do have some lipsticks in my bludgeoning collection, and here’s one that I have stashed in my bag right now.

Laneige is a Korean brand that I associate more with skincare than makeup. Their Water Sleeping Pack is awesome! I got this back in the day when I was going through a lip phase (which included hauling lipsticks, lipglosses, lipbalms), that lasted until I realised it didn’t make much difference once I chewed it off.. lol..

I actually really like the sleek white packaging of this lipstick, which is slim and looks very chic. There’s a snowflack motif on the top of the cap which is really cute! I love such details =P

lol.. I’m all for Happy! Who doesn’t need more happy in their life?

It’s not too pigmented, which I like cuz it looks glossy and natural, but if I happen to chew it off, it doesn’t look patchy and weird.

Here’s a fat ass lip swatch, see the shine? Doesn’t hide the lines of my lips, but I’m ok with that.. I think natural is the way to go for me when it comes to lipstick.. Some gloss, some shine and I’m done! Throw in some Pink, and I’m Happy! omg.. so corny.. lol..

Sorry once again for neglecting this blog.. Seems like I’ve been travelling quite frequently recently.. But this should be the last of it for a while.. Anyway I present my greatest haul ever! 2 weeks in Taiwan really isn’t wallet friendly!

Is that all?

Merry Christmas everyone! Who doesn’t love an excuse to haul and exchange presents? That’s what I’ve been telling myself since we hit November anyways. Hehe… Look what came in the mail just in time for Christmas…

Who doesn’t love mail?
