New hauls!l + La Mer 2017 releases

Woot my SUNUV nail lamp just arrived in the post. This is an LED nail lamp for curing gel polish and acrylic nails.Btw if you're considering an at-home system, UV lamps are potentially bad for your skin, need bulb replacement every 100 uses, and eat too much power overall, so they're kinda obsolete. LEDs also take 1/2 the time to cure nails compared to UV lamps so do not buy UV lamps.LED lamps are also cheap now. I got this on Aliexpress for US$20.99. Cheaper than a session at most salons.

January 2017

Chinese New Year Rush

It's almost Chinese New Year!Sorry for the long absence... we've been rushing to complete some work before the holiday period. And clean the house. And do some new year shopping. And pack the dreaded red packets.If you've known me for any period of time, you'll know I enjoy CNY as much as I enjoy wedding dinners. (Aka "not at all".)But you can still make the best of it by focusing on the enjoyable aspects. For me that's dressing up and dolling up. Lol.What can I say? I'm a Rooster.

New Year Beauty Updates

Inglot is having 20% off all items at their new Robinsons Raffles City branch until tomorrow 8 Jan. If you have stuff you want to pick up (like their AMAZING gel liners and one of my fave pigment and glitter mixing mediums, Duraline) this is the time to head over.Their prices are already reasonable so 20% on top is amazing.You might want to check out their liquid lipsticks too. Not much press given to them but the formula is fantastic and they have a ton of new browny-warm neutrals.
