~ HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR TO ALL!! ^ῷ^ ~
Hereby presenting all the Guan Yin Ma who just descended to earth~ Lolx!
CNY Day 1, I didn't plan what to wear like last year, so I just grab whatever I can find, mix & match them at the last min. I only intend to wear the rainbow dotted tights which I bought during my KL trip on last year Dec. Its really super pretty in real life! ^^ Reminds me of mermaid cos of the colourful scales... or something like that ^.^"
Guan Yin Ma OOTD:
YEAH NEW SHOES & BAG for the CNY!!~
I don't really wear wedges but this reddish orange pair from Charles & Keith ($49.90) has quite comfy soft leather material hence I convinced myself to get it, since the wedges are also not those bulky kind. The bulky or thick wedges will make me look like I have super big feet with super skinny legs. =p
The one on the right in camel & denim is from Mondo. Bought it on offer $34.90 ^^
Now that I see, both are like of the same height.. When I wear them, I'm like 180cm+~ ^_^"
I gotten a Charles & Keith bag too @ $69.90. (sadly no discounts on the items i purchased even though they put up a big big SALE sign outside the store :\) I think the bag is their newest arrival which I can't even find it in the C&K website. =_+ Anyhoo, i totally love this bag! ^^
On December, Na & I purchased stuffs from Korea through the help of Amber *muacks!* *\(~.^)
Below shows the purchases for me ALONE! Cost about $170 in total... phew!~ [ $ ] flys*
Of all, I'm most excited for the below items...
ETUDE HOUSE Nymph Aura Volumer #1 15000won: ~ SGD$17.70
ETUDE HOUSE Nymph Aura Loose Powder #1 12000won: ~ SGD$14.10
I'd watched a youtube video (by hover) talking about this product awhile back, so I'm pretty curious to how it actually works.
More Nymph Aura series details HERE.
As some of you already know, when you watch Kdrama/ Kmovie/ Kpop shows you see most of the artists having super smooth & glowy face. At times I wonder did they did too much plastic surgery that their faces shines like plastic? hahax!
Or do they really own a super smooth face that it can reflect lights at all angles? It kind of make me feel envious of their nice glowy skin. I have glowy skin too when my skin starts pumping oil to surface but its only at my T-zone area. *pouts* (⌐^⌐)

ETUDE HOUSE Nymph Aura Volumer Packaging, Ingredients & Swatches:
So much different kinds of oil in the ingredients, i'm afraid that its comedogenic. I got to check through each and every one of the ingredients to know if this product is non-comedogenic.
On CNY Day 1, I played with Nymph Aura Volumer.
The swatches on my hand, were taken after I got home (Not the one I use on my face). 1 volumer to 3 BB cream means 1:3 ratio. The BB cream has to be 3/4 times bigger area than the volumer you pump out, so that your BB cream mix would not be too oily.
And as for the 4 boxes pic that shows my cheek, I forgot to say that the upper row is before I apply Volumer. The bottom row is with a little volumer.
Review of ETUDE HOUSE Nymph Aura Volumer:
The good side is that it did gives slight glow on my skin, not the kind that sebum pumps up from the pores, but more to the healthy glowy kind. For the whole day my face seems to be quite nice to me (Maybe my skin is on CNY mood? lolx~). It didn't pump sebum, hence I need not blot and the slight glowy look is still there till I reach home. I didn't even touch up my face, it seems like its been moisturised well, hence my skin didn't produce sebum to replenish the dry skin surface.
The bad side is, I think it doesn't suit my type of skin. =(
I find by making my face look glowy also accentuate my large pores and those tiny bumps that are all over my face, esp the area between my eyes & nose. The volumer doesn't look very bad nor that good on my type of skin, but it can still be used maybe once awhile for a change, if I feel like it.
I would however recommend the dry skin (with tiny pores) people to try this volumer! I think it will make them look very much like those Korean stars, with super smooth & healthy glowy skin! ^_^
Thanks for reading! Hope all of you had a great day on your CNY Day 1!~ ^o^
Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)
