For the last two weeks, my grandmother has had me on no-coffee-no-chocolate-no-tea (with the exception of green tea thank god) no-seafood and apparently no-nuts (I discovered this last stipulation yesterday when I ate a peanut mochi) lockdown. My will to live stems from several of the items on this list, so I’ve been slightly irritable living off of bunny food and water. The lockdown continues until this Friday. To top it off, we keep going to these fancy seafood restaurants on the weekends.
Yesterday, I decided that if I didn’t get some retail therapy in, I was going to explode (my definition of retail therapy is standing in the middle of the makeup department with a crazed smile on my face). I headed off to Sogo in search of a very special eyeshadow.
Lancome’s #133 G40 Erika F is a gorgeous silvery green neutral shadow that US stores don’t carry (there’s some ingredient in there that’s not legal in America). Well, after scanning various department stores, I don’t think it’s available in Taiwan either. Bummer. I was in utter bliss at Sogo, though. They have a NARS counter! And a Guerlain counter! And a Magie Deco counter! So I still got my makeup gratification without having to spend a penny. Oh, and I was walking past the Estee Lauder counter and saw these:
Don’t they remind you of the Mac Blush Ombres?
