Midneyeght #punalert

Midnight falls

When Riga was in Singapore, I asked him to pay a visit to a local Sephora and get me the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in the shade Midnight. Yes, it’s one of those products that I can’t get in Indonesia and yes, it’s the product that I’ve been eyeing since many, many moons ago.  So can you imagine how happy I was when I finally held it with my hands?
The product itself is a liquid eyeliner in a pen form. It has a bendy felt-tip that makes drawing thick or thin lines and creating cat-flicks kinda easy. It dispenses this gorgeous blackened blue color and applies smoothly without dragging my eye lid. Once applied, it sets quickly and doesn’t budge for a number of hours. This product says it’s waterproof. However, each time I make wudu, some bits of the drawn lines disappear. I guess it doesn’t quite live up to its claims – or perhaps, my lids are such an oil slick. Still, I love this eyeliner and I can always do touch-ups.
I think this product is great for eyeliner noobs who’d like to hop into the eyeliner bandwagon for the first time. I used the same eyeliner when I was a newbie to the eyeliner game, only I used the shade Jet Black. And my hand was VERY wonky. Aside from the color, it had the same quality as Midnight.
Now that my need to have this eyeliner is fulfilled, I crave more for something else. Actually, there are two fellow pen liquid eyeliners that draw my interest. They are the LORAC Front of the Line Pro Liquid Eyeliner in Navy and the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper. Guess what. They are available only at the States. Boo.

Finally, I made a blog.
Maybe, you’d think that “d’uh, it’s just a blog and everybody’s been using it since ages ago. Where have you been all this time?”
Well, actually, this is not my first time creating a blog. I once had one back in 2008/2009 and then I stopped blogging – oh how I miss those “blog walking” days. Back then, I mainly rambled on movies because I was such a movie freak. Not that I am not now, though. I’m trying to remember why I stopped, but I just can’t. Perhaps I found other cooler stuffs to plunge into aside from blogspot.com
“What brings you here again?” you might wonder.
I have always had this thing in my head. One thing that I have envisioned since March 8, 2014. Basically, that thing is blogging again. However, I don’t want my new blog to be plain and boring and like any other blogs there are. I have always wanted this blog to be different. At least for me.
I didn’t just start as soon as the idea popped in my head. I just couldn’t. I had so many things to consider that I actually slowed myself down from moving forward efficiently – I didn’t have enough resources that cater to what I want. I kept waiting for the stars to be aligned, but they never were.
Many moons later, it occurred to me that waiting will only get me nowhere. Screw the Gods of the Stars. As Shakespeare once said, “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves…”
Rely on yourselves. Believe in what you are capable of. Or whatever the hell that quote means (interpretations can be very, very subjective, right?)
Long story short, I decided to coincide the birth of this new blog with my birth date. And here I am now, living my visions while at the same time welcoming you to my little corner of the Internet that will be filled with my reveries; from thoughts on life, and obviously, musings on makeup.
