Sunday Stash Shopping #60: Every Day Boring Makeup and A Big Rant

For a blogger who needs to socialize on social media, I’m actually very anti social in real life. I only keep a small group of friends, and I am happier that way. I do keep a personal Facebook page, and throughout these years I’ve maintained the page, I also kept my circle of friends small. I kept it only to keep in touch with friends overseas, and perhaps a few old classmates. I do not add friends from work unless they’re colleagues turned friends but from personal experience, unless you really clicked, once you left the job, colleagues (friends with benefits) will become strangers (no benefits, no friends). However, those who remained friends will be friends for a long time. So it baffles me to no end, that people will want to add you as a friend just because you’ve met ONCE. Maybe just shook hands and said hello, nothing more. That person hunted you down on Facebook and added you as ‘friend’. I find that creepy. I have since changed my Facebook settings so no one can find me with just my name. Then, some people might think just because they’re friends with your husband, they’re friends with you too. Well, that’s very friendly, thanks but the thing is, you never even met me before. WTF?

Just yesterday, I saw some feed by people I didn’t know. Then I realized I was added to 2 public pages/ groups where people shared photos and videos that I find offensive to women. I tracked down the pervert who added me and unfriended that asshole. This is the consequence of adding obligatory Facebook friends.

Some might not understand why it’s so annoying, but if you’re like me, introvert, one who likes to keep her circle small and cozy, you might understand. I want my circle to consist of people I feel comfortable with, rid of bitches who stab your back, or assholes who follow Trump. It’s my personal space, and if the person doesn’t like it, well, I know I won’t miss them in real life either.

Is it just me?

Boring old me has also been stuck in a makeup rut. I’ve only been wearing light eye shadow, blue liner, mascara, blush and lipstick. We have here Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Smash, Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Liner in Sapphire, Colourpop Super Shock Cheek in Bonus and Dior Addict Extreme in Spring Ball Extreme. I’m using Dior New Look mascara and Shu Uemura H9 brow pencil in Stone Grey. Of course, there is concealer under my eyes to cover dark circles. I’ve been using Bobbi Brown’s Intensive Skin Serum Corrector and Concealer a lot. I LOVE THEM!

Oh yeah, also, Beauty.AI, can you please stop sending me emails. I do not agree with the concept of having some robot tell me how old I look, and I do not need anyone to tell me if my face is wrinkly or if I’m beautiful. NO WOMAN SHOULD BE TOLD THAT. Number doesn’t mean a thing. In fact, the older we get, the richer our life experience is, which makes us all that more beautiful. Wrinkles around my eyes show how much I’ve laughed, and wrinkles around my face will tell me I’ve lived a long fruitful life. I use good skincare to keep my skin healthy and plump and as a result, wrinkles might have been delayed compared to those who don’t take care of their skin. However, there is NO STOPPING ageing, unless I’m dead. All women should age gracefully, and shame on anyone who tells us women to rewind time for more beautiful skin. Why don’t you pick on men for a change, and invent some serum to stop saggy balls?
