After gym and lunch, Kern and I headed over to Gurney Plaza since there was somethings we both wanted to check out. For me, I wanted to check out the paper masks selling at the weekend bazaar and try to find some really cheap tan foundation for the Ganguro FOTD. The cheap foundations' tan wasn't even close to tan. I feel kinda bad now for the people with tanner skins, I now know why I usually see them with the wrong coloured foundations and even if they wanted to use BB creams, it's hard (not impossible but really hard) to find something that matches them.
So my foundation quest came to a sad end. I can now only rely on my Elianto's powder that I got some time back thinking that I could contour my face with. I've tried it and it will "somewhat" work. It's not as tan as I would like it but still... all unless I can head over to MAC and beg Chris for some samples.
Came home, got on the computer and checked, I'm worried about putting paper mask or anything unfamiliar on my face since I break out easy so I only wanted masks recommended by JeanJean. Lo and behold, I mistaken the brand Tongxinxuemei for LIYANSHIJIA.
Big difference right? I mean, they don't even sound the same. Problem was, I didn't remember the bloody damned name except that it was some Chinese name. Worst, I have difficulty remembering Chinese names because they are so complicated; especially the ones from China where they have lots of 'X' and 'Q' which I admit I have difficulty pronouncing. Not that I can't, but it takes a while for me to recall that words with 'Q' has a 'ch-' sound or something like that.
My first thoughts when I saw my mistake " I suck chicken ass"
The Red Wine mask is from Hong Kong while the Hyaluronic Acid Mask (what a name) is from Korea. Or so I was told.
The Red Wine Mask contains red wine polyhenol essence, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, magnesium phosphate, bark of whete (no such word but maybe it's wheat?) mulberry root essence, vitamin A etc. Not to sure what is the other ingredients states as 'etc' though.
It is stated behind that:
Don't you just love it when people speak or type Engrish. I've always thought Fae was some kind of fairy creature. So this mask makes fairy creatures appreciate whitening and crystal skin? What the hell is reendure and energe?
Then again, I was kidding when I said I didn't understand. I DO understood bad English, you know why? Cause people nowadays can't speak proper English anyway. And if you do, prepared to get lots of negative comments. I kid you not. It's fast becoming a crime to speak good English in Malaysia. Not only will you be an outcast but mostly people who cant speak English for shit for whatever reason they never bothered to learn will accuse us of trying to show off. Remember there was a time I was arguing with a seller over a defect item she sold me? Well she and her friends all bombared me and accuse me of showing off my English - OUCH!
And the government is thinking of reverting Science and Maths to our National Language. I can see the future. I can see that Malaysia will be filled with people who can't speak English. I fear.
Left to right: Isn't the girl so pretty! I can't read a word, thats cause it's in Korean
The only thing I'm keeping my fingers crossed is that it won't break me out. Been neglecting my face the whole week now and was worried about its temprement but with the mask, it's either better or worst. I'm hoping it's for the better.
