Look Of The Day: THE FIRST TIME.....

THE FIRST TIME I'm beauty blogging from our new home. If you've been wondering where I've been, I've been exhausted. If you read my other blog, you'll see what I mean. My hands feel like sandpaper now, after washing them too much. Which reminds me, I have to get a heavy-duty hand cream.

THE FIRST TIME I'm wearing a man's shirt. Men's T-shirts I wear all the time, but this is a first with a crisp shirt. I stole it from the man, and now it's hanging on a floral hanger in my closet, MINE! =D
THE FIRST TIME I'm wearing these makeup products:

Bourjois 1,2,3 Perfect CC Cream #32 Beige Claire ~ Too soon to tell if it'll rock my world, but I like the finish & light-medium coverage.

Bourjois Intense Extrait Eyeshadow #09 ~ Very impressed how soft and pigmented this is. I'm already in love with it, and I see myself wearing it a lot. 09 is a deep mocha brown, which looks a little taupe. I'd also apply it as a liner with a wet brush, like I do the other black shade #10 (swatched here) Because I have hooded lids, eyeshadows hide in the folds, unless I do this......


MAC Vegas Volt Lipstick (Amplified Creme) ~ I will post proper swatches of this.

Ardell Individual Short Lashes ~ Forgot to include these in the pic above, but you can check them out in this post. I wore 4 of them on the outer corners of each eye.


And lastly.....

THE FIRST TIME a Monkey almost gave me a heart attack! Imagine this: I was all alone the first evening we moved into the new apartment....I was in my room, sitting on my ankles, taking out stuff from a suitcase on the floor....and then from the side of my left eye, I saw a monkey taking a stroll on the balcony right outside my door, only about 4 feet away from me. A lazy gait, almost like a catwalk, and it looked like it was chewing gum. I shakily muttered "Oh, Dear God.", and then like National Geographic, I ran closer to the door mobile phone in hand, finger on the camera icon. I need proof, for whatever/whoever, I don't know. Seeing this, I think even Bandar (Monkey) almost had a heart attack. It gave me a horrified look before jumping down onto the balcony under ours. I didn't get a picture yet. It was only after a few minutes that he reappeared, but he jumped down from the balcony above ours (how he got up there so quickly, I don't know!).
CLICK!
Hope it never comes again. I find baby monkeys cute (from afar), but the medium & grandpa types freak me out. I see a monkey, I immediately think of it jumping on my head & slapping my face senseless.


Makeup & Monkey stories over.

Talk to you again shortly. Promise, I won't be gone for days again! =)

These days, I've been enjoying re-watching Prison Break Season 1. It used to be my most favorite tv show <3

  9. Lol Cynthia you took a brave click of the monkey. during my school days , an aggressive monkey appeared from somewhere, attacked me , grabbed my left hand like a sandwich and bit me twice. Since then I am scared of them. Coming back to you. You look gorgeous. Love your lipstick. The whole look and backdrop is praiseworthy.very fresh spring look. I wish you could teach me how to do smokey eyes with minimal makeup and inexpensive products for rare occasions. :) I enjoy your creative posts a lot. Keep updating. Try neutrogena hand cream , norwegian formula .its good

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
