At the risk of adding another mascara tube hitched with the promise of thicker, fuller lashes that threaten to blow anyone away (literally) within a 5 mile radius to my already burgeoning mascara stash, I had better get to heaping praise onto this tube that may become a staple in my beauty box.
All hail the mascara from the land of all things quirky, weird, random and
occasionally mostly very expensive; the land of sushi and as you know it, anime.
Because I am a fuss-free, no hassle, minimalist, easy-peasy kinda person, what I really like about this mascara is that it offers a one-time application that lasts throughout the day! I dont have to worry about re-application (unless I want my lashes to eventually claim the title of Great Wall of China 2) nor do I have to worry about my look rapidly turning fresh, clean-faced to flaky emo-goth eyes.
On top of that, there are no flakes littering my bottom lids at the end of the day and my lashes are still prettily curled. HOORAY! To top if it, did I mention that there are NO CLUMPS? The look achieved is clean, long natural looking feathery lashes that look made up but not over the top.
After a long day of wearing Fibrewig Mascara.
Wait! There’s more! It comes off easily with warm water (read: no need for oil based make-up removers that may clog your pores) BUT! Because it’s water-resistant, stays on when in contact with tears or rain! How innovatively simple!
For SGD$25 a tube, it is a little pricey. But good things dont come cheap. I might just be throwing out my other white supposedly fibrewig primer mascaras and using this instead.
Imju Fibrewig Lash Mascara is found in Sasa or Watsons stores.
“They have trained hard, if not harder, than their counterparts.”
But yet all they get is one-tenth the remuneration?
For once, I felt real pride. And I am unafraid to say, I almost bawled.
Have you ever wondered how different you’d be after almost 10 years? Would your mannerisms have changed drastically? What about personality? Would you still be able to recall what made your memories then?
In truth, I never really thought we’d have this day. The turn out was supposed to bigger. But last minute appointments and back-outs citing excuses such as, “If XXX is not going, I dont think Im going too,” is pretty reminiscent of where we were almost 13 years back — Primary school. How apt. But, eventually we ended up with a group of 6, which was pretty nice in itself.
We hung out at Alps Cafe, off Dhoby Ghaut on Selegie and caught up over food and drinks.
And indulged in long lost stories which most of us had duly forgotten save for one lonesome warrior. It was funny trying to remember the stories, funnier attempting to remember who’s who and hilarious just knowing the silly things we did previously which were probably considered cool back then.

Adding to that list was:
– how some people used to catch tadpoles from the small puddles in the playground when it rained
– buying canteen food for like 20 – 50 cents (no such thing nowadays!)
– the other twin tower back then in primary school
– random people from other class whom we used to hang out with
– who went to which class for Chinese lesson
And a bunch of various stuff that I dont remember. In fact, I didnt quite remember some of the things they said happened! Oh no! Bwahahahaha! But it was great seeing everyone that night. Some whom I see quite regularly online, but hardly in person save for one or two occasions. Others, I randomly (or not) met several times the past month or so. The rest, I just havent seen since primary school! Surprisingly, everyone still looks pretty much like they did a decade ago and no one changed beyond recognition. They were just more polished and well-groomed but still very much the same person we knew so very long ago.
Everybody now from 6/2
Wonder if I can still dig up pictures from long long ago. Now that would be REALLLLLLLYYY funny.
