Random Shopping & Makeup Talk
Just for discussion sake, I want to show you my eyes without makeup and without eyecream. And here is yesterday's EOTD, with makeup, using Lunasol's eye palette from the 08 Christmas Coffret & mixed in some of Jill Stuart eye palette. See, I DO put on makeup. I don't understand why people keep telling me to put on makeup! I don't understand what they are asking me to do, wear clown colours?????!!!!??? I do put on makeup, I DO! If I line all around my eyes with black eyeliner like the SAs like to advise me to do, it actually looks too harsh and absolutely fake on me. Thinking back, I think that's what the Japanese Kanebo MA was trying to tell me. Really fed-up. I'm starting to think people say these things to me, only because they don't know what else to say!! By the way, I think my dark eye circles have improved! I've been using Biotherm HYDRA-DETOX BIO-DEFENSIS Yeux and Beaute de Kose ULTIMATION Eye Cream since Dec 08. I bought and will be switching to Shiseido's Bioperformance Eye Contour for a while to try out though. Check out the difference, this was my just-cleaned eye without any eye cream in Dec 08. Photo dated: 24 Dec 08. Did you know you could pre-order stuff online from Changi Airport's Duty Free, then collect the stuff before your flight? Or even keep the stuff at the store, then collect them on your return flight? Personally, I only learnt this yesterday while surfing the net. I found that I could either order stuff from the Changi Airport Malls site or directly from Nuance Watson's site. I'm keen on some products but not sure if I should buy them since I intend to haul stuff on my trip. I do know the husband is travelling in May! I can preorder stuff and get him to pick them up for me. *gleeful* Lastly, I want to show you my new powder. Remember the Paul & Joe SA recommended the wrong colour? I went to P&H counter yesterday and 02 is still not available so I changed it for Pressed Powder N in 04. I've been wanting it since I saw it in Fuz's blog. Isn't it pretty? I tried to adjust the colour to show you the light mauve tinge it has. I haven't used it yet but I think if it suits Fuz, it'll be ok for me, cos I think we have similar colouring, since she uses Legere BB Cream without much problems. Though the P&J SA is quite lousy with her colour-matching, I'd recommend Singaporeans go head for the Isetan Scotts P&J counter if you want an easy-going SA. Look for the SA who works in the afternoon shift, has wavy hair (like it was done with curling irons) and speaks English with a heavy Chinese accent (very heavy, I often can't understand her unless I speak Chinese with her). I shouldn't tell you her name online but email me if you want to know. Otherwise, I actually prefer the Takashimaya Paul & Joe SAs. They are more knowledgeable and better at colour matching. I MUST submit my Takashimaya card application soon! Today, I'm inspired by Fuz and will go search for some hairstyling irons ... © Copyright. All rights reserved.
