I am working on a new design – see the sketch – and one thing led to another (as always!), I see a relationship between time and food, more accurately, the duration of our life span and concept of food. Abundance vs. Scarcity When we were young, we made (probably still making) the same mistake in assuming that we still…
I don’t really watch Chinese shows or other Asian TV shows, but when I do watch, they are usually in the category of pugilistic films, or with strong historical extracts. I am attracted to the elaborated costumes and setups, and the use of proper Mandarin for that era. Imagine it as the Chinese version of Victorian times, the way the sentences were…
Sometimes we pick up the old pair of shoes and put them on again, because we don’t have other pair of shoes, or we are just too lazy to find another pair that fits. Or worse, we are on a rebound! (You don’t believe? You haven’t meet enough women who are crazy about shoes, they mourn over shoes! – I am not one of them, I am a one pair of shoes woman, literally!)
When we have no shoes, or too impatient to hunt for that perfect pair again, we compromise for less, much less, and conveniently forget the pain that this pair of old shoes once brought. Perhaps there was a time that it fitted quite well, but that time has passed, yet we convinced ourselves that we could rekindle the good old comforting feelings once again.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that all old shoes are no good. I am saying that the problematic ones are problematic.
Texture: As the name suggests, it really is ‘water’.
Application: The tint comes with an applicator, but I dab the lip tint in to the lips with finger.
Staying power: Personally, I like it faint, and I don’t really eat much when I am out (at least not recently, so this is not put to test that way). I wore this for 6-7 hours, and I only reapplied once; and recoated the lip butter many times over (dry lips!).
Price point: Cheap, I think. I have no concept of money, but I paid less than S$7, so that’s very affordable to me.
I am out and about (too much!) these days, and I have jumped from being ‘socially dormant’ to ‘socially hyperactive (in my context!)’. I need my iPhone to be juiced up on the go. I blogged about the portable power bank a while back and the only complaint was that it is too bulky and heavy. However, that is a…
