Making Her Up

Over the weekend (the previous one, of course), I met up some old friends from school. We’ve been hanging out as a group for almost 10 years now, and NO I did not leave school 10 years ago, tyvm! So.. Dinner @Ole Ole Bali of which the Avocado Shake is absofrigginlutely awesome!
*Photos to be posted soon, I hope. Hey, I didn’t take pictures that night, it was someone else camera and if she doesn’t upload & tag me on FB, then I’ll just have to wait till she does!
Anyway, what do girls do when they get together? Apart from the catching up and all that, of course Wai Teng had some wonderful news that topped all of ours, which is besides the point. After updating each other on the necessities (because we can!), we talked about make-up again. The not-so-new fad is back- eyeliner. I think that I can safely conclude that we’ve gone round the bush with lipgloss, mascara, bronzer, highlighter, blush, etc.. Anyway, then came the debate of which make-up we liked best.
All of us have tried Kate’s Gel Eye-Liner.
And a couple of us stuck to it. I never owned one, but once upon a time on our 6-day trip to Bangkok (where the 5 of us had to fight for that typical hotel-room-sized-mirror every morning) I had the opportunity to try them in 3 colours- black, brown and black with them glitters. It’s great because you can sweat like a farm pig and it still wouldn’t smudge. Can anyone say Chak Tu Chak Market @ Bangkok !? Yeah, you get the idea. Anyway,  you can get it from any leading pharmacies (Watson/Guardian,duh!) and even SaSa for RM 49.90 or something of that sort, and it even comes with a brush. Not really promoting it or anything, but since we’re talking about this, I might as well post up all the information I got from the girls.
Then, there’s the whole debate of M.A.C or Bobbi Brown producing better make-up !! Unnecessary, but totally educational. A couple of years ago, I used to patronize M.A.C. I had the whole works going on- well, some of it. Mascara, Gel Eyeliner, bronzer/highlighter. And I still like it.. To an extent. Because I discovered Bobbi Brown! IMPO, BB’s gel eyeliner totally lasts longer than M.A.C because it doesn’t even smudge even after a long’s night out at the club and after a crazy workout. Admittedly, I sometimes workout or go for jogs with my make up on because I’m too lazy to get them off prior. Grin.
Unfortunately, M.A.C doesn’t last too long on my face after I oil up or sweat. So.. My pot of jet black gel eyeliner by M.A.C is still half-full after 2 years whilst my pot of bronze shimmer gel eyeliner by BB is almost a 3/4 empty. Maybe I’m biased, I’ve learned to love the whole earthy look, thereby using less black these days. Unless the occasion calls for sexy! Lol.
Anyway, without undermining M.A.C because I still use their products, I think that BB has better eyeliners! Sorry @Wai Teng. Grin.

Since we’re talking about BB. I’m not ashamed to admit that I can’t leave the house without applying my BB Shimmer Bricks without feeling naked. Now, I know you think I sound like a complete bimbo by now, BUT FYI EVERY GIRL DESERVES TO FEEL LIKE A PRINCESS EVERYDAY! And if feeling like a princess means applying a thin layer of “barely there” make-up, then leave her be !! Sheesh!

This is me. Apricot Shimmer Bricks by Bobbi Brown ! Unfortunately, I think it’s no longer available in this colour (daymn! everytime you find something you like, they discontinue it in that specific colour!- and I quote this from P.S. I love you by Cecelia Ahern) so ya’ll will just have to find another colour that suits you best. The Sister uses the exact same thing in the colour Rose.
Even the Boyf has come to terms that we love BB so much that we cannot leave the house without shimmering it up!
Btw, it works awesome as an eye shadow as well!
All in all, we’ve come a long way since those fugly days we had in school.
Can’t believe I used to walk around like that..
