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