Another Shallow Discussion

Now who would want to read this with such a title? Nevertheless, I'm still posting it anyways because I'm in the mood to and hopefully, some of you might take notice and respond to it and I don't mind a shallow response as well ! It's Thursday morning and I'm still in bed with the lappy on my lap of course. I plan to take my breakfast at 8 in the morning and go back to mylotting after, before I take a shower at 9 and prepare for a wedding I plan to go to at 11. When I was away on a business trip I went shopping for my favorite brands of makeup, M.A.C. and Benefit. I have tons of favourites but had limited time I just went to the two stores that were near to each other. And today I get to try out these new cosmetics for the wedding. And I'm that excited. Do you get excited opening the boxes and trying out the stuff you recently bought? Coz obviously I do. Now this is really one shallow post. Pardon moi!

You do what makes you happy. In the end I will too. As for the question. Yes when I pay a bill. I feel as you do opening you goods.

Right and I really don't care whether people see me as a shallow one or not. It's my discussion after all and members here have the right to ignore that. It's fun unboxing and using what we bought.

@sharon6345 I love Sephora too! We can buy from Sephora online but it would come from Singapore and the price is almost double than the prices in the US.

I don't mind a shallow post . I used to love trying out new makeup when I was younger. I would rush home from town to try it out and sad to say it often looked terrible but it was fun experimenting.

When I was in my 20s until mid 3os I was terrible at applying makeup. Then came the youtube tutorials which I watch every single night before I go to sleep. That's when I learned how to truly apply makeup, from foundation to eyeshadow to brows, and blush, highlighter, and contour. I've been addicted to makeup for four years now. Oh and sorry coz I could talk on and on about makeup if one would allow me to. It's only here in mylot that I don't post much about it. And thanks for not minding a shallow post.

@toniganzon No problem! My 11 year old granddaughter has begun experimenting with makeup. I think she's a bit young really and sometimes she ends up looking a bit like a clown . However I've always worn a little and although she has a pretty face and doesn't need it I think she will wear it when she's older.

@sprite1950 I started wearing makeup only when I was already in my 20s and only when there was a special occasion I had to go to. But about four years ago, I started wearing makeup on weekdays when I have to go out. It's my way of practicing. I really want to be a makeup artist!

@JudyEv It's super light on the face and you don't look like you have makeup coz it still shows your real skin.

Oh, please! I make shallow posts constantly and don't care if people get offended (more like jealous) by them. I do what I do please. It's not like shallow posts are against the guidelines of this site! I love your new makeup! I'm a huge fan of Benefit and I just recently started using MAC. I have quite a few makeup brands that I love and use constantly, but I'm also trying new brands every other month! I just love opening all the goodies I purchase. I hope you enjoyed the wedding! I'm sure you looked stunning!

I've been a makeup addict for four years now and I frequently buy them I including makeup brushes and sponges. Some I haven't even used yet. Girls and their fascination for makeups. My eyes get bigger whenever I see new launch of MAC products on instagram.

Been here for more than 7 years to know that so don't worry. MAC and Benefit are all expensive. The Benefit primer set I got for 2,100 and the benefit brow pencil was 1,500. My total bill in MAC was almost 7,000. I was a bit disappointed that the loose powder I've been wanting to buy at MAC was sold out and they were sold out all over the country.

@Strawberry18 Loose powder is used for setting the makeup especially the under eye concealer so it won't budge or crease. I use it for baking my whole face coz I have oily skin, especially now that it's summer season. Some Ever Bilena and Nichido products are okay. I've tried Careline in the past but they're the worst. I heard the nIchido loose powder is good as a setting powder but I haven't tried it at all. I'm very particular with the quality of the product.

There are some local brands that work well. But the quality is just so different sometimes. I love Tarte a lot too. Especially their blushes. Maybelline age rewind is a great under eye concealer, have you tried it?

@Anne88 Now that it's available locally, it has become cheaper. I used to buy them online for 420 but now it's like 350 at the Maybelline counter.

Of course you know what it contains but have you tried what's in it already? When I got my MacBook pro touch after using an old MacBook pro for 5 years, I was really excited to get my hands on the new one. It's different when you can touch it and feel it in your hands and trying them out than just knowing what's inside.
