♥; Benefit
why am i here ah? i should be reading about interlanguage, variability, Krashen's models, Contrastive Analysis. OOA, PA, Bilingualism in Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore, Malta, Luxembourg, code-mixing, code-switching, works on abstracts, research article reviews, japanese nouns verbs bla bla bla...and loadsss more.

and what am i doing now?? saddening. truly

Anyhoooss (sharp deviation from topic T3T)

Been wanting to get this for a long time

Benetint, for your bestest looking rose-coloured cheeks and lips.

Another wishlist item:

haha. the packaging might look weird to some of you. But i think its cute, and look at its functions!

The colorless, weightless balm goes on bare skin or glides over makeup to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores while soaking up excess oil, giving you velvety matte skin! sounds Perfect. especially for the undereye area where concealer tends to be uneven on the undereye fine lines. saddening.

One of the benefit products i've used before is none other than She Laq. which used to be in my wishlist too. not anymore tho.


In the package, there are a range of mini brushes, including lip brush, mascara brush and all. Just dunk it in the magic She Laq potion, apply over your makeup, and ta-dah! Your makeup is WATERPROOF! Rofl.
I was like heaven-struck when i got to know of She laq. I've always had a problem with running eyeliners. saddening. especially with kohl pencils. Pierre got it from Aus, i think for around 50+ AUD..
Neways, She Laq wasnt much of a use.. it smells suspectingly like nail varnish, and it gives a slight tingle when i use it, especially on the lips. AND, my eyeliner still runs.

Manda's got the lemon-aid, something like a primer to cover up redness on your eyelids.

Don't know if it's this one or the other concealers, but yea, they Don't reallly work as good as i imagined. I forgot the undereye concealer's name, she has two colours, but both of em gives a whitish tinge on the undereye. Heaven Forbids! Maybe its because they're more suited for the angmoh type reddish undertone skin.

Currently using Beautymaker's aqua eye concealer.

The texture is quite good,creamy type. medium coverage. If you have strong under eye circles like me, i dont think that alone can help, you'd need something with a thicker consistency. Like MAC studio finish SPF 35 concealer, i "borrowed" it a few times from my sis.
(^.^) (reallly good coverage, becareful if you have dry skin tho.. the thick pasty texture may dry it up even more)

hope my Benetint and Doctor feelgood pass the test. Fingers crossed.

UPDATE: bought Posietint instead and loved the pink in it. Minus marks for the low quality packaging though. Tried generous amounts of doctor feelgood in Sephora. Was awed that it really did blur out fine lines on my hands but the second time i tried it didn't deliver *confused.
Solved my running eyeliner problem - use Gel liner or waterprood liquid liner :D

♥; The truth about collagen
i just read here that collagen products are useless cuz they cant be absorbed by the skin and our guts.FML. what are those collagen masks and body creams for then? and that vitagen collagen drink? wtf

Explanation (from various sources below:)

Of the various types of collage creams, none of them actually contain collagen. A molecule of collagen is too large to be absorbed by the skin. The main ingredient in collagen cream, functional keratin, is a combination of peptide proteins that help your body to build collagen. The remaining ingredients include water, mineral Oil, cetearyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate SE, glycerin, isopropyl myristate, ceteareth-20, propylene glycol blah blah blah..

The ingredients are listed in descending order, from the highest concentration to the lowest, unless there is an ingredient that is considered an active pharmaceutical. Then it, as well as the percentage found in the concentration, will be at the top of the list.

When you read the labels for collagen creams, you will see that the protein is listed far down on the list. In one of the popular brands, it is the 24th ingredient, far behind all of the artificial preservatives and petrochemicals.

One type of cream that contains collagen is referred to as anti-wrinkle cream. Anti-wrinkle creams may also contain retinol, hydroxy acids, or copper peptides, along with the previously listed ingredients, to lessen the appearance of wrinkles. Creams labeled as anti-wrinkle haven't been proven to actually prevent the development of wrinkles, but only to lessen their appearance.

They cannot make the fibers lie in the dermis stronger. They can only make your face look shiny. Basically, buying collagen facial cream is not your best choice for wrinkle reduction, improved firmness or delaying the signs of getting older.

SO, in short, the collagen products u have been consuming or slapping to your face all these time isn't collagen at all. know im sakai but......interesting....

♥; Sweet
sometimes. i get so caught up with myself.. that.. i neglect other people's needs. Thursday night was a wake-up call.. my wake-up calls are short-termed tho. haha. but its better than nothing. thanks to dear ol' dad. guess he's one of those people who knows me best. on the other hand, it's so easy to deceive him. haha. wtf.

have been reading some blogs.
fascinated by anecdotes of their love stories *admiring mode*

Love Story - Taylor Swift

And I said,
"Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone.
I'll be waiting; all there's left to do is run.
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story - baby just say 'Yes.'"

sweet and randomness of the carefree young :)
