a mental illness which causes the sufferer to do something repeatedly for no reason
I do sometimes wonder if I have a little of OCD just as well. I'm not posting all these pictures to make anyone feel anything, it's merely a reminder to myself of the things I already have. Sometimes in my quest for neatness, I stuff everything into tins and boxes - outta sight outta mind. But the problem starts when I can never remember what is it that I have and the problem with me is that, if i don't see it, I don't have it, so I BUY!
Then one fine day, I clean up my room and discover that I have a total of 50+ lip glosses and a few balms all still happily in my drawers and have more than 85% left. That's when I slap myself on the forehead and wonder WHY?
Yea sure, 50+ lip glosses actually isn't alot at all compared to some people who owns them by the bulk. But for someone like me whose actually grew up being thrifty, I feel like crying, what on earth was I thinking?
But then again, there are some that are gifts from loved ones and also some free gifts ones. Hee!
20+ lipglosses from various brands such as Elizabeth Arden, Crabtree & Evelyn, Paul & Joe and others are in hiding, someone smack me please!
I've finally used the mascara again after my Kate Volume Mascara finished and here it is. All 2 coats of it. If you're curious about my review on it, just search it up on the search box.
If you're wondering why the front of my lashes looks short. It's not short, it's just facing downwards and giving the odd appearence of it being short. I have a problem with my Stage Eye Lash Curler which I bought from Queensbay Mall for RM35. Lets just say the tester was better than the actual stuff.
I found that it did not fit my eye shape and I have to press hard into my eyes just to get to the little nooks and corners. It would probably be a good fit if you have slightly deep set eyes but for us chinese, it's gonna be tough. But it also depends on person to person and I don't speak for all. So feel free to stick to your Shu Uemura, Shiseido, MUFE or Anna Sui eye lash curler or whatever fits you best. I regretted buying mine to say the least.
For the stuffs that I absolutely did not regret buying would be the Crabtree & Evelyn La Source set (RM180+) that comes with a hand lotion, hand wash, hand cream, a bar of soap and a tote bag which I love!
I actually bought the entire set solely because I wanted the bag. How lame am I? I didn't like the La Source range as much as I liked Rosewater or the Lavendar range but after using the La Source hand lotion, I've found my HOLY GRAIL lotion!!!!!
But serious shit, the La Source lotion is the BEST lotion I've ever used. Of course there might be better ones out there but as far as I've used, forget Johnson & Johnson, forget Loreal, forget Palmers BUY La Source! It's a little pricy at RM75 for 200ml but it's worth every single penny. Thanks E!
Another thing I didn't regret buying (okay it was a gift and I didn't actually pay for it) was ta-daa, a Gucci bag! *hops around happily* I love it! I'm really not the type of girls that's into branded this and branded that. I find it a little silly, it's just that I love the fact that with branded bags, the quality is always there and the best part is that you can use it for years and years to come. I'm the sentimental kind of person, I appreciate and love everything that I've ever owned and I find it very hard to get rid of old, torn, stained, whatever bags. So at the very least if there was ever a problem with the handle with my Burberry or Gucci, it's still replaceable and fixable. So I don't have to throw out my old bags that often now that I can get them fixed.
Personally I would never buy any branded shoes like LV, Coach, Burberry shoes or anything even if I ever have a million bucks. I walk alot and I step over anything and everything that's in my way. A puddle? No problem. I'm embarrassed to say but I have literally walked into ditches (those big longkangs) before during a heavy rainfall ( the ditch was clogged up and due to the heavy downpour, I failed to see the ditch and walked into it. MUAHAHA!) and it really didn't bother me when my entire shoes were soaked wet. Sad to say, shoes is one of the things I never really take care of. *sigh*
Oh I recently found a small stall in Gurney Plaza selling cheap OPI imitation nail colour. I thought it was OPI and it got me attracted, on a closer look, it was called CALAR, sounds like someone either cannot spell or it's a way some people pronounce the word color. So that aside, the sales assistant was a very chatty young man, I wasn't interested in buying but he seemed so nice so I ended up buying some. T.T
I'm so naive and easily conned. But it wasn't expensive at all much to my surprise. It was only RM4 per bottle and RM10 for 3 bottles! O.o
Right pic: comparison between OPI and CALAR
Anyway the above picture is OPI's INdia-Mood for love.
My first Biotherm product. I've never used any of their stuffs before this and so this is new to me, bought it because my skin was so dehydrated it was starting to peel as well and this is not normal for my skin. It's been going on for a month or so and I know I needed help. Decided to try the smaller 30ml bottle and see if I break out of anything and thankfully I didn't. After about 2 weeks, I received some feedbacks that my skin has gotten better. No longer that dehydrated, still is but not that bad so I'm happy. Lets see how it goes long term.
