Groovy Green eyes; NYX mini haul :D

Since I'm saving up for iLasik in Penang Adventist Hospital, I've been saving really hard to the point that I just wanna scream. I have not bought my self any new shoes, clothes, did my nails or hair and I've even stopped buying make up.

Even then, I'm still short for everything. I'm planning a holiday and just the tickets to Japan is the price of my entire budget if I save 1/3 ( I'm being paid peanuts - literally) of my pay every month for the next 6 months!! So me and JH scrapped that idea and decided to head somewhere cheaper. I must admit that I'm beyond disappointed but it really can't be helped.

Next month is my birthday and I need some money then to have the usual dinner with the Clubhouse people. *sigh* I'm broke for now on till God knows when...damn!

But anyway there was a few new things I bought recently, one of them my monthly commitment, (don't you just hate that word? I know I do) my contact lenses.

Q: So why don't you save yourself money by wearing glasses, you vain pot?
A: Being vain is one thing but the reason I don't like my glasses is because I have high power; high power = thicker glasses = heavy = Bad migraine.
Of course, me being smarter than most people had to choose a pretty heavy frame. So guess what? Extra weight! I can only wear my glasses for a maximum of 3 hours before I go on a rampage and snap people's head off.

Q: Make a new one, you silly goose!
A: I went to ask around but to make glasses my power, it's gonna cost me RM600 just for the glasses. And if I'm gonna get iLasik, what's the point of getting expensive glasses?

Btw, care to donate?


That said and done, I decided to buy my contacts from the Optometrist shops instead of online. I'm no longer wearing my Caring brand contacts (still my love and favourite) and no more fake GEOs. I don't care or trust what they say about it being original and all. Don't care if it comes with some fancy sticker, a birth cert or whatever, I'm consistently getting fakes and it irritates the shit outta my eyes!

I NEVER had eye irritation till I switched to GEO. Why I got paranoid? My colleague developed an eye irritation from contact lenses which scarred her eyes which made her unable to get iLasik done or even wear contact lenses. Don't want that happening to me.


Left to right: Groovy green sans make up; GIVE ME ALL YOUR MO-NEHHHHH!!!

There was some promotion going on for FreshKon. Buy 2 free 1 which means I pay RM100 for 3 pairs of contacts! Whee! I know GEO is suppose to last a year but I usually throw them away max 3 months. So anyway being curious, I ordered the Misty Gray, Perky Brown and...Groovy Green. Never tried green before. Hee heee!

Hmm, that reminds me, there has been lots of complains about FreshKon being uncomfy as well. It's either you like it or you hate it. No in between so as usual, different people has different preference and such.

Also, I'm not here to bash Geo lovers. I love the colours and it's pattern as well but my own peeve is that I HATE getting cheated and getting fakes. Worst, you can never tell till you buy and wear them!


My usual office look, I don't line my bottom for work :P

When I first saw them, my initial thought was, 'Looks dull' but when I had them on, I freaked out, it looks reptilian on my. I comfort myself saying it's only for a month. I endured worse. I came to realize that they look awful near but from far, they actually look pretty okay. :D



Under natural sunlight and in my room, yes yes, I had make up streak on my left picture, nyahahahahahha! That reminds me, I finished my jar of Bobbi Brown eyeliner T.T Of all months to finish, it had to be this. I use them nearly everyday for nearly a year so no surprise. Thinking that I have to give it up and buy a cheaper alternative, JH being my hero, bought me a new jar. Yip Yip Hooray me love!


Oh me loveeeee, you finished!

Now if I have not bore you with my tale of woe; broke-ness and all I have happy news! There was a day when I hit depression after months of denying myself anything nice, eating nothing but our cafeteria's depressing vegetarian food (at RM2.50 who can complain?) I was going nuts...

Q: How can vegetarian food be depressing?
A: Apparently you have not eaten ours... I kid you not.

And then, my 6 months review at the company revealed something. I misread a small clause in my contract and signed it! ARGH!

I.R.teh.smartz

Came home all depressed and bought my worst sin online... cosmetics!!
Was choosing when Elyn suddenly popped into my head, I remember how she likes NYX cosmetics so I decided to sms her to see if she needed anything. Damn, she's fast. In ten minutes, she sent me her list, I usually take a day or two to even decide.

I knew JH was disappointed in me for buying all this especially since he knew I was broke, but..but..
*whines*


13 days later, they arrived! MY BABIES HAS COME HOMEEE! Now before you smack me left and right for lying that I was broke, a gentle reminder that all these are not mine. Half of it belongs to Elyn.

And like Sue mentioned, there are like 1089273483595238460 post about these so I might not bother with any swatches. They are all over the net, just goggle them :D I have tried them on and I'm liking them, they are non-sticky. They have a glossy sheen to them which is nice and I don't know but I could have swore Sugar Pie smells of cough mixture.


Aren't they so pretty?! Looking at them makes me happy. The stuffs on the right is mine. I bought; Sugar Pie, Smokey Look x 2, Tea Rose, Sorbet, Whipped x3.

One reason I bought Sorbet, Whipped and Tea Rose is because I saw my idol, Eki using them for some of her FOTD. Bought Smokey Look because it was Elyn's favourite. Ahh so much for originality :P

Tea Rose came out a little dark for me so I'm a little worried. Should I keep it or sell it off? *sigh* Might wanna sell off Smokey Look x1 and Whipped x1 too. See how it goes...


Concealers! Hey, someone doesn't know how to stick things on properly!

Concealers are my former best buddies. Can't live a day without them. Then my face got better and they got degraded to 'only for special occasions/ for when I'm not lazy'. I bought NYX concealer before, one in yellow. I have no idea what compelled me to buy yellow but I thank God I manage to sell it off.

I wasn't too sure what fit me best so I bought two, one in Light and another in Beige. I read that Light was more suited for NC20 while Beige was more for NC25. I am a NC15, so why am I still so tempted to use Beige instead??

Light scares me because it's really pinkish tone while Beige is more yellow. I think I'm yellow although I've been told otherwise. Elyn, HELP ME! SOS!

I need to sell the other one off so I can't swatch them to try them on. Damn!

oo boo. all my contacts are geo. i actually hate my dali extra size greens because they REALLY irritate my eyes and normally i'm a tough cookie.

i'm sorry you're broke :( i'm at home now so i feel extra guilty and try not to buy things but my mom just went ahead and spoiled me rotten at the mall :/

i knowww i have terrible vision too and i hate the feel of glasses on my face. they stress my facial muscles out and make me tired and cranky xD i'm bad. i wear my contacts like ... 16 hours a day at least.

aren't you scared of lasik? surgery creeps me out! haha ya when i get upset i usually start looking at makeup online. and that's how it all begins :(

this has been a book of a comment. enjoy :D i usually save pics of stuff i like. that way if it's uber expensive i feel like i have it somehow. it's an amazing way to trick my mind. becoming an aesthete is both a pain and a charm.

LOL!! Oopsie, my Geos are never comfortable only because I suspect mine are fakes >.< I guess any real stuffs are comfortable seeing how popular they are.
Over here, probably a good 90% of seller are selling fakes so you never know who is selling them till you buy it and try it

There are lots of complain about FreshKon being not comfy as well on the net altho they are originals but they suit me fine :P

Ahhhhhhhhh!!! I wish me ma was like that XD

Wow! *shakes your hands* I found a buddy. I usually wear my contacts for that long too, nyahahhahahaa!

Nah, it's painless and since it's iLasik instead of Lasik, I feel much safer.

LMAO! Interesting way

Nice NYX porn! ;) I had Lasik surgery done years ago. It was the best thing I ever did for myself. (Well next to marrying the hubs of course :P) Good luck!!

Dolce♥Bunny said...

I had to google what was iLaik. I didn't know you had to use contacts with power! Have always thought you wore contacts for fashion reasons!

My dad has done the laser surgery and he said its the best thing ever. He sometimes wears glasses for fashion though... =.=;;;

I've seen many people do review on NYX and actually seen the product but for some reason I've never bought them...

I didn't know you worked in Adventist hospital!! awesome!

Yooohooooooooo *waves*

Ooh look at all those lovely lipgloss colors! Really nice!

Ah man! Are the tickets to Japan that expensive?! Don't worry Ash, I know in the near future you'll be able to go to Japan!

I wanna do eye surgery too when I have enough money! I'm afraid for it, but lenses or glasses are just annoying me! It will be soo nice to just wake up and roll out of bed with a clear vision! Because I work behind the PC for so many hours a day, I rarely wear lenses or glasses. It's strange, but I have no life now, so don't go out a lot -_-''.

Your bday is coming Lalalalaaaa!! How lovely ;D

Hahah Elyn did her dance again! The dance that introduced me to her many many months ago ^_^. Fun times!

Ciao Bella & have a lovely weekend *HUGS*

dblchin said...

oh gosh... i used to always get eye infection when i wear colour contacts that y i went ahead with lasik.
Now ( haven't wear contact since lasik) i just bought some daily contacts to try, cross fingers i'll b in 1 piece! haha

btw about the tongs, i use to burn myself v much too but i have to say practice makes perfect. Nowadays occasionally i get some sizzle at the back of my ear/neck too!

Angie said...

yup connector rings don't limit your finger movement at all. since i wear size 4 rings, i pretty much can't ever find rings in my size so i clunk away with oversized ones and ignore it :D

shuaddict said...

Wowie your NYX haul is a real mega-haul. I just discovered NYX and thought I was going overboard as it is so am glad it's not just me!

How do you know GEO lenses are fake? I just started wearing them and thought there are stickers underneath with a code to verify authenticity. Made me feel safe but could they be fake too?
