Yesterday it was raining. It rained after i got back from a wedding. I was my brother's partner, how pathetic and boring my sunday was. Since it ras a rainy sunday with nothin much to do, i found something interesting to do. SHOP!
Syasya, Cintahati's sister, reminded me that my lipgloss were running low. And so it was a great opportunity to fill in. And there you go, just the stop at Benefit and i'm glued. Well, not like i haven't thought of the pretty M.A.C's Hello Kitty collection but i just totally loathe Hello Kitty itself. And i thought Bobbi Brown was a bit on the pricey side (since i blew my savings on inner wear at La Senza earlier) and therefore opted for Benefit.
I had been eye-ing for Benefit since the first makeover i had, the same day i met Cintahati, (seriously!) but since i was still a student then, i had no fund for make-ups. But it never failed to make me smile and wait for new items with the twist of quirkiness. The vintage look of the fresh item just makes me drool over and over again!
Okay, back to Benefit, so my mission no.1 and only is to get Her Glossiness. Right! I didn't. The Beauty artist, Jennifer offered me to try the Lemon Aid since i was asking about high brow. I was kinda interested in the effect. Then she asked me to try Lyin' Eyes, for the dark circle and there you go. She ended up doing a whole make-over for me. With Benetint to Coralista, the new pretty blusher to Bad Gal lash mascara to You Rebel foundation to the ever-gorgeous Skinny Dip lipstick.
So after all that and the patient brother, i ended up buying 3 items, the must haves no.1 (that means the remaining items should be on the wish list!) The Lemon Aid for the lazy girl who is too lazy to apply eye shadows for the more natural pretty look, the Lyin' Eyes which worked like magic and give you some kind of glow and Her Glossiness which looks so kissable any time you wave that wand.
And so, who says makeup has to be serious to look good? It took her less than 10 minutes to get me done and Voila! i felt like a pweetyyyyyy pwincess out of covergirl magazine (yerrite!)..... All that for a good RM251 minus the RM10 rebate from Parkson. Yay!! More and more savings.
So here's the items i got, believe me when you read the descriptions and test and tried for yourselves.
1. Lemon Aid
