More obligatory shopping.

I ran out of eye cream a few weeks ago and hadn't had the chance to go out and buy some more yet. I've been using the Anna Sui eye treatment cream for quite a few years (and Biotherm before that), but I decided I wanted to try something different this time. After asking my mom, who told me to try Clinique, and looking around the cosmetic section at Sears for a bit, I decided on the Clinique "all about eyes" cream. When the lady at the counter asked me "what my concerns were", I told her I usually stay up late so I'd like to reduce circles and puffiness, and she recommended this one for me.

When I got home, I was digging through my mom's collection which consists of numerous bags of her prized cosmetics, and I took some stuff that she probably isn't going to get around to using. I gave her a call to make sure I could take her stuff, of course. I'm excited to use her Lancome eye palette! These are all the colours I mostly use on a daily basis.

And on a final note, I bought a brand new stick of my favourite product, Tide to go! On Friday, I was commuting to work when I was forcefully pushed by a girl behind me, who apparently really wanted to stand in this one spot some steps away from me, even though she would have been fine where she was already standing. Without noticing that I had no space to move aside to for her to pass through, she pushed me and my heavy handbag slid from my shoulder to my elbow, jolting my arm and causing the coffee that I was holding with that hand to spill... onto the Korean girl sitting below where I was standing.

Even though it wasn't my fault, I apologized profusely to her and asked her if she was okay. She said yes, but her face looked something in between "upset" and "outraged" (even though it was just a tiny bit spilled onto her t-shirt), so I took my Tide to go from my bag and said, "If you like, you can use this," and told her how to use it. She looked a little skeptical at first and she dabbed at it (I told her she had to press down... but she wasn't pressing hard enough and I didn't want to be like NO YOU HAVE TO PRESS HARDER FOR THE TIDE TO COME OUT). So in the end, the bus reached the terminal station where we were all getting off, and I told her she could keep it.

Needless to say, I was hugely disappointed that I lost my favourite item. But I got a new one today, so it's fine now :)
