Oh la la, oh mi oh my, I'm melting..

Is El Nino back or is the weather considered 'normal' for the Chinese New Year season cause I'm melting - fast! The air has been dry and more people are falling sick faster than you can say 'A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down'. Err.. okay that was pretty long but anyway, my skin around my forehead and nose is still peeling. It's so strange to wash my face and feel my nose all rough and patchy.

So what's there to do but apply plenty of moisturizing face mask right? My masks is finishing and I haven't had the time nor money to replenish. I'm still saving up for a phone. Mine has started to lose it's mind. If it had one. The dictionary no longer works and sms-ing people takes me a good 10 minutes per sms and it's making me lose my mind.



A long while ago, I bought the Nu Skin creamy hydrating masque. Stated on the back;

Drench your dehydrated complexion with Nu Skin Creamy Hydrating Masque. This nourishing face and neck masque features Saccharide Isomarate, a moisture magnet that binds moisture to the skin to reduce dryness and brings out a natural dewy glow. While hydrating, Creamy Hydrating Masque infuses soothing nutrients from cactus and pine cone extracts to help keep skin looking healthy, beautiful, and radiant. Beyond ordinary moisturization, Nu Skin Creamy Hydrating Masque Nourishing Treatment is an oasis for dry skin.

With a description like that, who could resist? Not me that for certain since I bought it. After using it for so long on and off, I can safely say one thing. It doesn't work for me. This is just my own 2 cents of course, if it works for you, good for you but I spent RM80+ for this and it really didn't do anything. My skin didn't feel moisturised or anything. My skin was still peeling and after washing the masque off, my skin feels no different. I really am puzzled.

Bah.

I ended up using my should-have-been-long-expired Clinique Moisture Surge found in the back of my fridge and it actually works. How pathetic is this?

Anyway, Etude House is having a sale again and this time, I went to pick up some nail polish for a friend who's leaving for Australia. She seems to have a thing for funky nail colours so I decided to get her some.



I spotted the pink and couldn't resist. I love it! It's so happily girl-ish pink. I'm hoping to go back and stock up on this colour. Hee! Ah, forgive the horrible nails, it's been a while since I painted them and with no top coat, its starting to peel. Eew.

Su Mei of Life Holics Online brought some what do you call them, *scratch head* DIY fluffy paper mache like clay to model and experiment and I happily asked for some to play with. It's so fluffy and delicious looking! Left on the table I would have sneakily eaten some (if I didn't know they weren't edible)

Since I'm really not the most creative person around and can't really make anything from these two hands of mine, I made the most simplest fancy shape I could think of - hearts.



Plain hearts are no fun, spotted some of JH's GW acrylic paints which he uses to paint his Warhammer 40k models and painted the hearts with them. Nyahahahaha. In the end, I ended up with 4 hearts, one cookie and one Hello Kitty inspired round I-have-no-idea-what-its-suppose-to-be. My Hello Kitty has a fat nose.. my first try and probably my last. The ribbon is actually a nail sticker :D



As the year of the Ox is coming to an end and on Feb 4th/14th, enters the Tiger. I haven't even bought any new clothes yet. *sigh* Lots of people seems to be in a rush to marry before the year of the Tiger starts since it doesn't look like it's going to be a good year.

Girly was to attend her close friend's wedding and requested that I do her make up for the dinner. I happily agreed. She's probably the only one I really feel comfortable doing make up for since I have no cert and I'm no pro.

Atleast I don't charge. She's so easy to make up for, flawless skin and nice features. Decided to post up some of her pictures of the make up. It was my 2nd time doing it for her and we both agreed that the 1st was alot nicer. She wore turquoise then and baby blue this time.



Thank you for the ang pow!! :D

Your friend's makeup came out so good! :) You're like a pro. I suck at doing makeup for other people. I've mostly done makeup for my lil sister for her dances & one time (only once) for a friend for her Bday
