Finger Infection; Maybelline's Baby Lips

I apologise for the lack of post, it has not been a good 2 weeks for me. Out of no where an entire army of pimples came barging in and decided to stay with me for a good long vacation and refuses to go away.

Also, there was a lack of NOTD because me being a smarty pants tore my cuticles and left an open wound on my finger which then got infected. Nothing you guys wanna see. It hurt for a good 2 weeks before it turned purple and swell like a sausage. Out of desperation, I messed with it till the green pus came exploding out. Ugh right? Now, imagine my reaction?


On my last trip to Singapore, I saw Maybelline's Baby Lips at Watsons but being stingy, I decided to come back to Penang to get it hoping it'll be cheaper. I ended up waiting for a good 3 months before it arrived selling at the same price as Singapore after the exchange rate conversion. FML!


I wasn't sure if the lip balm was tinted or not so to remain safe, I got one named soothing cherry. Upon opening it, it turned out to be colourless (D'oh). UGHHH NOOOO. I no like cherry! Anyway the lip balm promises 8 hour moisture and rejuvenate lips in ONE week. I'm going to put this for the test.

Ever since I started my new job, I've been applying the Lip Smackers' Cotton Candy lip gloss I won from Bunny's Giveaway a while back every day religiously. My lips are in pretty good condition now so let's see how Maybelline does.


Another thing I got from Watsons was the Rose Fairy hydrating facial toner and lotion. Not sure how good it works or will works but knowing that it's a in house brand, it'll probably be mediocre. I'm not biased but I've tried a couple of in house stuffs from Watsons and they range from really bad to bad to average.

The only reason I bought them was because I really liked the bottles. They reminded me of the little traveling size bottles from Anna Sui. At 50% off I decided that I could just throw away the content and just use the bottles. Then again, the rose smells really good. The toner reminds me of rose water. Hmmm~

EDIT: The toner smells funky when you pour it out on your hands. Pour is a good word to describe it since there's no stopper. The lotion is really oily. Me no likey...
