Confessions of a Drugstore Makeup Junkie

I confess that I'm addicted to drugstore makeup. I get an adrenaline rush when I see BOGO (buy one get one free) or 50% off. You get great deals, and sometimes you find makeup that is amazing quality comparable to designer makeup brands like MAC or NARS.

For example, I was browsing CVS today and they were having a 40% off sale on Physicians Formula products. When I saw this kit I HAD TO HAVE IT!!!

I've been searching high and low for a dupe of MAC's blacktrack fluidline gel liner because I didn't want to shell out $15 for a miniscule .1 oz pot. Physicians formula had a set of 3 liners in 3 different colors and an eyeshadow palette for $8.99 with 40% off it was $6.00!!! HOLLA! I said I'll take it, despite the risk of it being low quality, the price wouldn't make a dent in my pocket anyway!

But here's a good example where you don't get what you pay for. These gel liners are AH-mazing! Look at the pigmentation, wow!

And they don't smudge either. I was rubbing the swatches really hard with my finger and they did not move AT ALL(except for the black because I didn't let it dry long enough)...

The bonus addition of eyeshadow palette didn't disappoint either. The pigmentation was above average for a drugstore brand. They were very soft and creamy and not too much shimmer, just right. You can apply it either dry or wet for a more intense, dramatic look. Supposedly, these colors will enhance brown eyes. I'll have a fun time playing around with them. These were swatched without a primer underneath. Can you imagine how vibrant these colors would be with a primer?

I also decided to pick up another eyeshadow palette for perfect smokey brown eyes (40% off sale price=$4.40). I've been on a smokey eye obsession for the past month. The pigmentation with this palette is OK and some of the colors are gorgeous!

I'm a happy bunny! My wallet and I are giving each other the high five! I think I'm going to go back there and get the other sets for Hazel, Blue, and Green Eyes. So run to your nearest CVS right now and get yourself this set, you won't regret it! The sale ends on Sunday!

Unfortunately, I don't think they sell Physicians Formula in Boots or Superdrug in the UK which sucks! But then again you gals have Barry M. I could kill for some Barry M dazzle dusts and nail varnish right now! *Sigh*

These are My Flamenco Shoes...

I haven't worn them in 5 years.

You could say that I'm a tad bit rusty. I've had this burning desire to go back for the longest time, I am now ready. It's time to get off my fat arse and just do it. Taking all these science and math classes have driven me to the edge I think. I need a creative outlet, dammit!

I'm now registered and will be taking classes from this amazing and beautiful dancer..

Confronting Rude People!

I was in line to get on the MUNI (bus) for my commute to school. The bus was late, the line was long, and I was in a bad mood. As soon as it was my turn to get on the bus, this woman comes charging and bulldozes me over and cuts right in front of me. I yelled, "Excuse you! There is a line you know!"

She is in front of me about to pay the driver and she bobs her head back and forth and said, "Girl, girl don't even start with me. You have to wait and get in line like all the other immigrants!"

I guess she assumed I was fresh off the boat since I was Asian and assumed that I was the mousey kind and let ppl steamroll all over me? I told her, "Listen you ignorant bitch, I was born in the US and I waited in line like everybody else! You just don't cut in line and push people like that, you rude ass bitch!" I was ready to clock her fugly face if she gave me the green light to do so.

She started mumbling bullshit at me and bobbing her head again. She went to her seat. I gave her the stink eye, I sat 3 seats behind her. I think I made her paranoid because she kept looking back. We both got off the same stop and I walked right behind her, she saw me and walked faster (practically running) and kept looking back.

Rule #1 you don't mess with Asians. View exhibit A...

pereljon — October 07, 2009 — Oct 7, 2009 10am, Chinatown San Francisco. This fight occurred on the Muni Stockton route (the 9 i think) just before the stockton tunnel. As you can see, a simple argument about seat-hogging quickly turned into a full blown brawl. It's pretty clear who threw the first punch, you can see the bus' serial number, and the exact time in the video.
By the way, this is the same bus where I was attacked 3 weeks ago, so I thought documenting the event was the most important thing I could do. This fight was NOT reported by the driver OR by the MUNI person who happened to be at the final stop (Stockton and Sutter). I'll be walking to work for a while.

Together Time

HopAlong and I did a swat team workout together over skype. It worked out pretty well. :)
