I'd like to thank everyone who read my last post, and everyone who left wonderful, kind comments. It's therapeutic, writing about feelings that I usually keep hidden from the surface.
I did not intend to reach out to all you readers, but I am glad I did. Each and every one of you are strong, inspirational women. I can't thank you enough.
So while I've been feeling bleh the past week, I bought a few new goodies and also received my crappage from drugstore.com. I vowed never to order from them because last time, my order took a damn month to arrive. But this time, it took less than two weeks so I'm quite happy. I didn't get anything special from them, just everyday essentials that I just can't get in Japan. I do like Japanese products, but sometimes, I miss American stuff too. Like I can't get deodorant here. Japanese boys and gals wear the spray-on or roll-on kind, because that's all that's available here. It does NOT work. I'll be sitting on the train, and the chunky dude next to me will smell like decaying seafood...SICK!
Here's the look I wore to Shibuya. I used NYX 'Aloha' as the base, 'Mediterranean' from lash line to area above crease, and M.A.C 'Concrete' on outer 'V' and 1/3 of contour. I love Shibuya...it has EVERYTHING. I wish I took pictures of people, I think Shibuya-ers have great style. Funky but polished at the same time. Never too loud or obscene.
Then here's me after I came home...wearing my new NARS The Multiple on cheekbones and Chanel lip gloss.
Department store haul (expect the Rimmel mascara):
From Top: M.A.C Technakohl Liner in Graphblack, Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara, NARS The Multiple in Maldives, Chanel lip gloss in Sesame, and a Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler.

Drugstore.com stuff (I got Secret deodorant too, haha, just didn't take a pic)
