On a lighter note, July has left me with many things to be happy about. Check out my new toys! Yes, I'm aware that they're not makeup. So, after 3 1/2 years, I got myself a new phone -- Nokia XpressMusic 5530. To the right is my Garmin which is quite the life-savior considering the fact that my sense of direction is almost non-existent. Last but not least, I have me an HP Mini Netbook. It has been increasing my productivity, somewhat. I can now harvest corn and feed my pigs wherever there's wifi! Yeah... kinda got hooked on Facebook's Frontierville.
Read on to see what some of my blogging friends have been up to in July and you so need to check out the Shu Uemura Tokyo Lash Bar 2010 lashes!
Great reads from July '10:

The Shu Uemura Neo-Tokyo Odyssey Lash Collection looks stunning on those adorable monkeys, don't they? I really wouldn't have mind having one of them! The monkey, I mean. As for the lashes, I'm still not too sure if they'll translate well on humans, as gorgeous as they are. Unless, of course, you're going for the Lady Gaga look. In that case, my favorite would be the disco ball looking Neo-Reflector (bottom right). Neo-Sparkle (bottom left) is probably the most wearable one out of the bunch but it's not the most unique. Cosmic Chain (top left) looks great on the monkey but check out Sazzy Falak's pic below and tell me they don't look strange.
Sazzy Falak was emcee for the night's event and see what I mean about the lashes not translating well on humans? Still, she is a beautiful girl, even more so in real life. One of the night's entertainment was a violinist that can model or a model that can play the violin really well.
Familiar? Quite obviously, this "Metal Mohawk" look was inspired by Avatar! Though, the artist, Surya, said that it was inspired by "Star Trek" and "Poison Ivy".
Besides the dramatic lashes, the show also featured a new collection of more natural/wearable lashes. The crazy futuristic outfits were designed by Joe Chia, 2nd Runner-up of the Malaysia Young Designer Competition 2009.
Artists with their models... See that model with the poofy hair and her tongue sticking out in the group pic? It took me a while to realize that it was Denise Keller (MTV Asia VJ), which explained why she kept making funny faces and couldn't keep still most of the time. Lol.
I got to take home a pair of lashes and I went for the natural ones. Shocker!
