Prayers for the people in Japan!

God! I just want to say THANK YOU,
Because this morning I woke up and knew where my children were.
Because this morning my home was still standing,
Because this morning I am not crying
Because my spouse, my child, my brother or sister, my parent does not need to be buried
or to be pulled out from underneath a pile of concrete,
Because this morning I was able to drink a glass of water,
Because this morning I was able to turn on the light,
Because this morning I was able to take a shower,
Because this morning I was not planning a funeral,
But most of all I thank you this morning because I still have life and a voice to cry out for the people of Japan .
God I cry out to you, the One that makes the impossible, possible,
The One that turns darkness in to light,
I cry out that You give those mothers strength,
That You give them peace that surpasses all understanding,
That You may open the streets so that help can come,
That You may provide doctors, nurses, food, water, and all that they need in a blink of an eye.
For all those that have lost family members, give them peace, give them hope, give them courage to continue to go on!
Protect the children and shield them with your power.
I pray all this in the name of God!!!

Inside Liner from Diane Kleger(Japan)

Bought this "Inside Liner" during my last trip to Taipei's- "Hands Tailung"台隆. Price at NT$590 around S$25.00.
This is a very black eye liner for applying near the lash line area, it actually create an illusion that the lashes look fuller & the eyes are much bigger & brighter.
I don't quite like the applicator as it is quite thick, so instead of using the applicator I actually used my own eyeliner brushes,picking up this liquid liner & apply onto the lash line area, which I think will be much better, won't mess up the whole eye makeup!
What I really love is because this liquid liner is very black plus water/tears proof.

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation.

The US Maybelline have newly launched this "Fit Me"-Foundation. The first shade-aligned system of foundation, powder, concealer and blush.
The 18-shade foundation and powder collection (with six coordinating concealers) marks the brand's largest color range to date, spanning fair to dark skin tones. These oil-free formulas are numbered by intensity, which makes it easy to coordinate products.The foundation goes on smoothly and feels completely weightless on skin. Despite its light consistency, it provides medium coverage that looks natural. You don't look like you're wearing makeup; instead, it just seems like you have an even complexion.
Hopefully they will launch in Singapore as well, so looking forward!
