It is official: I am now some kinda makeup/skincare junkie in the making. I gots some new... er... acquisitions yesterday...
Yep, that's teh double C's you see there. My broke self bought these yesterday:
Chanel's Inimitable mascara, and their new Aqualumiere lip gloss (in shade 69, to be exact :P)
I've always sorta stayed away from Chanel because, well... it sounds expensive. haha... But yesterday they were doing some roadshow thing at Pavilion where you can purchase a RM 200 or RM 300 voucher and redeem RM 180 or RM 280 worth of Chanel stuff, and you get to have a makeover and your photo taken by a totally hot photographer :P So because I have totally no self-discipline, and because it was Chanel, I caved (I previously resisted the Dior roadshow. hehe.) and bought meself a RM 200 voucher. RM 20 was for a hair makeover by some guys from A Cut Above, and the remaining RM 180 went to paying for the stuff I got.
Ahh.... seronoknya aku ni... I got to use Chanel's products for the first time, and they really did make my fugly mug look hella lot better. Or maybe it was the makeup artist? The makeup artist didn't just slap on the makeup but even used abit of cleanser, moisturiser and whatnot first before the makeup. Of course lah, they gotta promote Chanel Precision (the skincare line) as well... And they also write down what stuff they use on you so you can buy it easily next time. So clever.
So... after the whole makeup and hair re-styling shebang, what did I look like?
Et voila! As you can see, I still look slightly fugly (and a bit miang in that pose), but overall the degree of fugliness has been greatly reduced. Of course, the Photoshop helped a lot, covering up my pimples and all that, but the unedited pictures looked kinda nice already. And my hair looks a bit cacated here, but I really liked the curls they gave me, though I looked waaaay more mature. hehe. Too bad the curls lasted less than 2 hours... sigh. And they put the photos in a tres chic Chanel envelope!! Yes, I'm excited about a Chanel envelope. I'm weird that way. Looky...
Yah... I look different, eh? To make a comparison, here is my fugly self in the au naturel state:
Sacre bleu! The horror. Oh, I forgot to mention... I got new glasses! Because the klutz which is me managed to chip my old glasses, and the chip was too big to ignore. Yah. So I got these, which according to my housemates, look nice on me/make me look like an artist/make me look intellectual/make me look like Ugly Betty. Please select your own interpretation from the above choices. Or come up with a new one.
So... Bedtime for me now, but I can't wait to try my new preciousssss tomorrow when I go to work. heehee.
