I have been stuck at home this entire week cause Barry is sick! I really hope it’s nothing serious =S I’m a little upset at first since this is our second last week here and we couldn’t go anywhere 🙁 but, how can I be upset at a sick boy who needs all the loving he can get T__T
Anyway now that I’ve sorted out most of the mailing list stuff, I can now blog again! Except that I don’t know what to blog about.. hmm.
OK I know what to blog about! I’m going to talk about all my best purchases so far!
When I first bought Shu Uemura’s cleansing oil, EVERYONE looked at me in doubt and in shock. Did Suet just spend RM250 on…oil??
I always find myself in deep financial shit when I return from abroad cause I’m still stuck in that USD/Pounds/Euro mode and when I convert RM to USD, it doesn’t seem thaaat bad so I always always overspend in my first week back in Msia. (It’s stupid cause when I’m abroad, I always convert everything to RM wtf)
So I’ve been wanting to get this for ages! I’ve heard about the miracle that is Shu Uemura’s cleansing oil and I just…bought it…without thinking T_____T
At first I regretted it like crazy! Everyone was laughing at how stupid I was when I could just use a much cheaper makeup remover and I was moping in regret for a long time. (oh by the way this cleansing oil is for removing makeup or for deep cleansing).
Anywayyy I can now safely say that this is one of my best purchases ever after using it for two months! Why:
1. the whole bottle can last me for at least 1.5 years! I don’t use thaaat much of it each time.
2. no more tugging on my skin when removing makeup! I just have to gently massage it and the makeup comes out easily. Most makeup removers I’ve used result in me tugging on the sensitive areas around my eyes so much that I think I’ll get wrinkles soon. Besides, I can use this for eyes and face!
Mineral makeup is so amazing for sensitive skin like mine! I use Bare Minerals and I like it a lot cause it doesn’t look that heavy like other types of foundation. Comes with SPF 30 too!
And that $10 brush is sooo good ♥
Colored contact lenses!
Why oh why haven’t I discovered you earlier? Look at my boring and dull Before eye! Not only do I have perfect eyesight now, I also look a lot fresher and more mysterious (when I wear the grey ones lah)
The downside is you get too dependent on them and won’t feel like putting on your makeup without them. Also, don’t know why but even after three months, I still can’t wear them without feeling uncomfortable.
Maybelline’s Lash Stiletto! Don’t think it’s out yet in Msia but it’s my favorite mascara now after Majolica’s. It doesn’t clump at all and yet is still good enough to make my lashes thicker. Cheap drugstore makeup is heaven for poor students like me!
Urban Decay’s Primer Potion!
This is possibly the most I’ve ever spent on makeup. It’s $20 (RM75) but I cannot live without it now. You apply this on your eyelids before applying eyeshadow so the colors show more and will last longer. I use it very carefully so I still have more than half left even after 4 months!
I’m sure everyone recognizes this white tshirt cause I wear it like..everyday wtf. Heh it’s my super favorite tshirt cause it’s sooo comfy and goes well with anything. It’s quite expensive for a t-shirt but at the rate I’m wearing it now, it’s my most worthy purchase ever!
My red belt, which I wear with every outfit wtf. As you can see, I don’t give a shit about rewearing my clothes and stuff. I got this belt 3 years ago and it has served me so well. I know it looks really boring and plain but you should always have a few belts like this!
And lastly, my ultimate best purchases are always from Sg Wang!
These four items are all from the RM15/RM25 shops. Those are shops that sell EVERYTHING for RM25 but you cannot try them on at all. It’s not easy finding something nice amongst all the other lala-ish clothes but if there’s a will, there’s a way!
Those RM25 shops are truly amazing because not only do they allow me to shop while being my kiamsiap self, they also provide much excitement in my life. You have no idea how it feels to suddenly stumble upon something nice ok! Also, because you can’t try on the clothes, you get super excited after you buy them cause you really want to know if they’ll look good on you.
And if they do…seriously, the feeling is like you just won a jackpot or something wtf. The clouds will open up and the angels will sing with their harps and all that wonderful shit wtf.
The beige dress on upper right is unfortunately not one of those wtf. It’s totally not my style at all but I bought it anyway just to be adventurous but it doesn’t look too good on me I think.
The black one on bottom right is my favorite!! It’s so chiffon-y and has ruffles too! It looks a lot better in real life and with a belt.. but pokoknya, it’s super nice ♥
I want to continue this post with other purchases but I have to go cook dinner now! That’s what is expected of you when you’re at home all day =__= Biggest dilemma all day: what to cook!
p.s: i’m going to penang for three days so i won’t be doing my mailing list thing. if you haven’t received my email, then be patient ok!
