Hellooo darling Doodlers 🙂
Last week, two of my friends went out on a make-up shopping spree during lunch hour and I decided to tag along. We went to Stage and I had so much fun! I tried and tested several lipsticks and realized that I tend to pick up the more natural shaded lipsticks. I wanted to buy them but as I thought about it, I remembered that I had pretty much the same shades at home so I scrapped the idea.
As I was browsing, a makcik who seemed to be in an absolute rush just pushed her way in front of me and started grabbing some lipsticks from the tester tray while loudly talking over her mobile. She kind of got a little bit annoying so I moved on to the eye-shadow counter. I picked up a glittery deep blue shade, lightly patted my ring-finger on it and brushed it over my right eyelid. I didn’t realize the powder was so fine that a lot more than I expected stuck on to my finger, thus resulting in a large smear over my eyelid. My frantic wiping with my other clean fingers just smudged it even more. I ended up looking like someone who just got out of a boxing ring with an awful black eye. LOL. I managed to clean it up with tissue after several rigorous wipes.
The makcik left soon after so I went back to testing other lipstick colours. I got a wonderful surprise as I found a shade that is almost exactly the same as my favourite Dior Addict lipstick that the husband bought for me four years ago! I’ve used up my Dior and unfortunately they don’t have that colour anymore (according to the Dior counters that I’ve visited, boohoo).
Sidetrack : just saw Kate Moss in the new Dior Addict mini movie. Damn she’s hot.
To cut things short, I ended up with two lipsticks and a gloss, all in eye-popping bright colours (thanks to the encouragement of my friends, heheheh).
Terrible terrible habit.
A few days ago, I stared at the clutter on my dressing table and decided that I’ve got to do something about it. Cosmetics lay piled in a basket, bottles of creams and oils have a thick layer of dust on their covers and there’s just so much junk that I can barely even see the table top.
So, I set out to clear out all my expired make-up. Believe it or not, I even still had lipstick that I bought in year 2002. That’s almost 10 years ago! Then I found eye shadow that had grown some mold. Disgusting. By the end of the day, I had a huge plastic bag of expired stuff which if I had put on my face; I’d probably end up in break outs or allergic reactions. Ugh.
As I was clearing up my make up stash, I kept glancing into the mirror in front of me. Man, the sleepless nights have really taken its toll on my skin. My face looks dull and tired and I’m starting to have fine lines around my eyes. *cry* I’m getting ooooooooolllddd!! (sedor ler diri tu dah tue)
At that point, I made a new resolution. I will stick to a proper beauty regime. Cleanse, tone, moisturize every day and exfoliate every Tuesdays and Thursdays. Dab on my eye creams and not sleep with make-up on.
Now that my dressing table is clutter free, I’m happily glamming myself up again (much to the husband’s joy). Looking a bit bare though since most of the expired cosmetics have been trashed. Guess it’s time to restock my make-up. *grin*
