Recently, my bro asked me what I want cos he's going Taiwan. So I looked through some Jap cosmetic brands' sites knowing that most of the Jap cosmetics in Taiwan are sold cheaper than in Japan itself.
I came by Lavshuca site, seeing the advert on their new Summer Collection - Lav Garden, thought that I could share with you ladies too. Incase you're like me, asking friend to custom purchase for you. ^_^
I'd been liking Lavshuca for awhile now, as you could see it from my previous posts HERE. Especially their lip products! I almost clear their rack when I was in Hong Kong the last time! Lolx~ Their lip products are usually quite pigmented and their shades are good to use for a natural look at work or school. ^^
The limited edition lipgloss shown below will only be on the racks from May till Oct 2012
I was pretty tempted to get one of the below.. then suddenly recalled that I still have a few unopened ones so..... I withdraw myself from it. (>⌂<")
This limited edition Lipstick comes in 4 shades, they were already launced on Feb 2012 and will only be available till July 2012.

Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)

This post is somewhat the continuation of my previous X'mas-New Year post. ^^ (Read HERE for the previous post)
Last year Dec 16-19, I and a few friends went to Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur for a Cosplay event, Comic Fiesta 2011. The CF 2011 was held at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) and we stayed only a walking distance away, which is the Impiana Hotel.
The Petronas Twin Towers taken at night with Iphone. I posted this pic on that day in Instagram.
I mean, Belated Merry X'mas & Happy New Year! Hahax~ ^^"
I hadn't been blogging since last year (lolx). For past 2 months+ I was very busy with work, going out on my off days and preparing my cosplay stuff (More like resting when I have some spare time as I'm just too tired! lolx~).
Now I got lots of stuffs to write about: my collective haul, my birthday, my trip to KL, X'mas presents! ^o^ And not forgetting reviews! I hadn't been doing it for so long! Pls forgive me *bows* m(_ _")m
Anyhoo, hereby presenting my cosplay, me as 藤乐乐 [Teng Le Le] from 独领风骚 [THE ONE], taken by Data. This is like my.... 3rd time cosplaying the same character? ^^" I never get bored of doing it cos its considered the least troublesome costume among the rest. And its my first time cosplaying outside of Singapore! Hence I'm very excited about it! XD~
Following 3 photos all taken at Impiana Hotel in KL, Malaysia.Thats the hotel that we stayed during Comic Fiesta 2011 @ KLCC (CF Facebook) (More coverage @ Danny Choo) Its an overall good hotel, I like it ^^, service & food was ok. We only experienced once which the power tripped in the morning and we have to brush teeth in the dark toilet even though its morning lolx~ Cos everyday in KL was cloudy~
Sept - Oct 2011: Hong Kong ~ SG Massive Hauls + swatches (Lavshuca, NARS, Shu Uemura, Lancester, Seche etc..)
During September, I went Zhuhai, Macau, Hong Kong for work. At very short hours I grabbed alot of stuffs from the shelves without even looking at them! Hahax.. just kidding^^" But yah, I almost swiped off products from shelves cos I don't have much time to even think if I should buy them due to the busy schedule and itinerary!
Finally, I get my hands on MORE Lavshuca lippies (YIPPE YEAH YEAH!) and also the NARS Orgasm Blush which my bro couldn't managed to buy during his Thailand trip! \^o^/~

I didn't buy Laniege but I REALLY REALLY Love its BB Essence Balm! I wanted Bodyshop's Extra Virgin cream compact but its too oily.. Laniege's cream compact feels so smooth & sheer, I would want to get one~ T^T But I didn't turn back cos not enough time for more shopping.I think i cost about S$48 which is reasonable and I also tried their sunblock, its feels so good too! Should I buy them in Singapore or ask someone to CP? Which one is cheaper? o_O
I forgotten to swatch for NARS Orgasm, mean time, just refer to:

The Sample Store recently sent me 2 LipIce Sheer Color for review. At the moment I heard 'LipIce', my eyes brightened up! *DING* (O)_(O)!
I had a few Mentholatum lip products and I'm really loving them all, especially the LipIce Gloss that I own and the Lip Gel~ ^.^
Here, shows the LipIce Sheer Color in Shimmer and Strawberry.
It is said that this LipIce Sheer Color works like a lipstain + lip balm (or lip moisturizer). I went "OOoo! ♥" when I hear 'Lipstain'. =D
However, the moment I see Stawberry, I faints. (Lolx) Because I don't really like using cosmetics with strawberry scent or flavor! (I'm weird eh? ^^") Nevertheless, I still give both a try to see how they feel!
