#4 Cheryl Cole's Gorgeous Red Dress in "Promise This"

So I don't know if anyone has seen Cheryl Cole's "Promise This" music video but I absolutely LOVE LOVE the red dress she was wearing in it! Anyway this dress is from Jenny Packham's Fall 2010 line.

Generally I don't like wearing red because it would make me really self conscious as it's so bright. But I've to say this is one red dress I would wear if I had a place to wear it to haha.

#3 Haul from Watson's Christmas Sale!

Headed out to the Watson's Sale at VivoCity yesterday night and manage to grab some stuff! I think most brands were participating in the sale so there were some pretty good deals as nearly everything had 25% off. 

Here are the 3 items I bought:

Eucerin Anti-Pigment Pigmentation Regulating Fluid 
(Normal Price:$53.90/Sale:$40.40)

 Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Nail Polish 
(Normal Price: $12.90/Sale: $10.90)

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation 
(Normal Price: $29.90/Sale: $22.40)

Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri nail polish is one product I rave about to my friends all the time. In fact, I have them in various shades. It seriously dries up within a minute which is good for me because I always always knock my nails into things and mess them up. 

Anyway the product I'm really excited about is Eucerin's Anti-Pigment Pigmentation Regulating Fluid! This is the first time I'm trying Eucerin and I choose this product because it is suppose to reduce and prevent pigmentation disorders. It contains Dioic Acid which helps to slow down the production and distribution of melanin. This fluid also has a SPF of 30 and UVA protection so it's perfect for me to wear under my make up  or just as a sun screen alone. 

I tried it this morning and it smells nice but I'm not loving the feeling of it. Like all products which has SPF, it tends to be a little oily but it got absorb into my skin pretty fast. 

(Pardon my wrinkly hand haha)

I'm suppose to see brighter and more even toned skin in 4 weeks because that's what it says on the box! So I'll review this product again in 4 weeks with before and after photos. :)

#2 BEWARE: Worst Mask Ever

Pores Be Pure Skin- Clarifying Mud Mask Review

Recently, I felt like my skin was much oilier than usual. So I went in search of a mask that would help "soak" up the oil. I was about to head out to the drug store to get some when my mom popped into my room and asked me to try this mask she had bought but not used.

To cut a long story short, I followed the instructions on the back of the product and applied it to my face and neck. Within a minute my skin started to burn and there was this painful stinging sensation ALL OVER my face, I rushed to the toilet to wash it all off. 

I WOULD NOT recommend anyone to use this product ever. My skin stung so bad and it remained reddish for the next half hour. Fortunately, it wore off after awhile. I told my mom it was an industrial skin mask and the only time I would ever apply that again (I still have more than half of the mask left) would be to my foot!

But now I'm in search of another mask for oily skin. Any recommendations??
