These products have become my go-to. When I've slept late, or don't feel creative with my makeup or just need to look good without too much going on, I turn to these.
@makeupforeversg Starlit palette has such a beautiful mix of neutrals that will take you from day to date night and probably even wedding. Love it!
@chantecaille Le Sirena Bronzer thats sold out almost all over the world and it's easy to see why. It gives you a glow without looking sparkly and shiny and even though it's a powder it looks like second skin. The bronzer is beautiful too - none of those muddy or orange undertones.
@ctilburymakeup Matte Revolution lipstick in Queen is my first CT lipstick and I love it! The colour is gorgeous. The finish, soft matte without drying the lips.
@beccacosmetics Be A Light palette is what you need when you want to set your makeup but don't want it looking flat and matte.
@lancomesingapore Teint Idole Ultra Wear -I don't think I have stopped wearing it since I've received it. The finish and staying power are just absolutely amazing.
Finally, @maccosmetics eye kohl in Teddy for subtle definition and @hourglasscosmetics Caution mascara that i carry everywhere with me.
Love these products, but they were a nightmare to flatlay.
Today, I'm exploring Barnes and Noble for some books, and I stumbled upon this beauty.
I had heard much about this book, reception wise. And I decided to skim through the first chapter, so here's a #minireview on it! -The writing in this is truly mystical, and I'm drawn into the author's dialogue and descriptions. But I'm wary to continue it just because I know that instalove is a theme here, and that is something I personally avoid while reading. -The cover is GORGEOUS, and it makes me truly envious to see as an author myself. -Would I try it? ...Sure, every book is worth a read until the pages are blotched.
Week 38 #empties 😊
😍 hell yeah!
☺ I like it and would repurchase
🤨 nice but... nah
😫 go away!!!
@mamondekorea Aqua Glow Ball Base Gold 4/5 😍
- super nice for dry / dehydrated / normal skin (and maybe even oily), this one leave glow base for makeup and hydrate skin same time. And it never flake my makeup or ruined it! 💕
@holikaholikaglobal_official All Kill Cleansing Oil Balm 3/5 ☺
- so this was my first cleansing balm (I bought it when I was in Estonia and there was not many options to choose). So far I like it, it cleanses face from makeup well and washed off easily (and super easy take it when travel because no need be afraid about leaking).
@neogen_official Gauze Peeling Wine 3/5 ☺
- I like exfoliate like many times on week, but I have something like 6 different exfoliater and there is not any what I can say I REALLY like it.. 😶 but this one did job well and didn't irritate skin at all. It have chemichal and manual exfoliator in one pad (other side is "rough" and you use it first and then you wipe your face with soft side and wash your face). And byebye dead skin cells and other stuff in face and hello soft skin! This was my second jar of these and I would repurchase these if I don't find any better.
Nivea Dry Fresh 4/5 ☺
- I am really suprised Nivea have done that good antiperspirant 🤔 (I am more Rexona girl) but worth of try and doesn't dry armpit at all and keep you fresh. .
@innisfreeofficial My Real Squeeze Mask Lime ☺
@apieu_cosmetics My Skin-fit Sheet Mask Sea Buckthorn 😍
@etudehouseofficial Green Tea ☺
Good Sunday morning! I finished reading The Harbinger earlier this week. While certainly not my usual type of read, I've been interested in it for a good while. So when I found it at a booksale I figured it was a good time to pick it up! 📖
While it had interesting tidbits, the title is a bit misleading. The warning is one of truth, but the way it was presented in fiction I can see turning many people off. Needless to say, this won't be one for my shelf.
My question today is: Do you keep all books? I don't! My shelves are filled with collections, classics and books I love. Hope you all have a great Sunday! 😊 .

Guten Morgen ihr Lieben 🤗 Gestern habe ich endlich die Balea Thermo Turbanmaske für 2,95€ ausprobiert 🙀
Was die Maske verspricht:
💁🏻♀️ selbstwärmende und silikonfreie Intensivpflege
💁🏻♀️ seidiges Haargefühl und intensiver Glanz
💁🏻♀️ verbesserte Haarqualität und leichte Kämmbarkeit
Wie ich die Maske finde:
Ich muss ehrlich sagen, dass ich dezent enttäuscht bin 😶 Schon beim Herausholen des Turbans fiel mir die geringe Menge an Produkt auf und ich fragte mich, ob das für meine langen und dicken Haare reicht?! 🤔 Ich entschied mich erst erstmal gegen die Packungsanweisung, bei langen Haaren einen Dutt zu machen, denn so kann sich das Produkt ja erst recht nicht gut verteilen 🙈 Also stopfte ich meine gewaschenen und handtuchtrockenen Haare einfach so unter den überraschenderweise gut sitzenden Turban und fixierte ihn mit der Klebelasche 😊 Die Kommentare zu Hause und auf meine Story reichten von Hausfrauenlook der 60er, über Omma-Duschhaube bis hin zu natürliches Verhütungsmittel 🤣 Auch wenn sich der Turban sehr angenehm trug und ich - wie angegeben - immer mal wieder massierte, stellte sich kein richtiges Wärmegefühl ein. Es war maximal ein bisschen lauwarm 😉 Nach 20 min spülte ich meine Haare aus. Ein pflegender Effekt war definitiv da, allerdings nur dort wo auch Produkt hin kam und das war ein vergleichsweise kleiner Bereich 🕵🏻♀️ Besser wäre es wahrscheinlich, wenn mehr Produkt in separater Form enthalten wäre, sodass man erst aufträgt und verteilt, und dann den Turban aufsetzt 😶 Ich hab wirklich mehr erwartet und frage mich, ob Turbanmasken generell nichts für meine langen und dicken Haare sind? Wenn ihr die von Ikoo oder aus der L’Oréal Elvital Dream Length Reihe bereits getestet habt, verratet mir doch gerne mal was zu Produktmenge und zum Handling 😘💋
Platinum Trophy #2 ! Life is Strange
The first episode was free on the PS store so I tried it out of curiosity. I enjoyed it so much that I bought the whole game. I love exploration and making decisions, and time travel is one of my favourite things so I had to see where the story was going to go.
I did enjoy the game, episode 4 being my favourite, and I was very satisfied with the ending. Once I finished and started reading about other people’s experience with the game I was slightly surprised that there was such a huge fan base. I tried to have conversations online about my views on the ending and I remember getting shot down by people who thought they were right and no one else could have an opinion. Although this didn’t ruin my experience with the game as I had already finish it, it has tainted my fondness a little.
It is important to acknowledge that this game is not for everyone. It is full of teenage angst, some of the dialogue is a bit cringe and there isn’t as much gameplay as some people would Life. However, the game has a beautiful unique art style, an intriguing story, incredible attention to detail and in my opinion, a satisfying conclusion.
It was a pretty easy platinum and I enjoyed my time going back and collecting the photographs that I missed. I haven’t played Life is Strange: Before the Storm yet but I am going to play it on the channel, as well as Life is Strange 2. I did however play The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit which is a prequel to Life is Strange 2 and I enjoyed that very much!
I also wrote a full review on my AnOrdinaryOddball blog if anyone wanted more insight!
I’m teaming up with @Neutrogena to show you how I upgraded my skincare routine #Brand_Partner#Ad#GotItFree
Neutrogena has always been my favorite sunscreen for ages together. I loved their Ultra Sheer Sunscreen the most as it didn't break me out and also didn't leave any white cast. I personally love my skincare to have a gel-like formula as it doesn't leave my oily skin more oily. So, when Neutrogena launched their new Hydro Boost Gel Sunscreen, it directly went into my handbag. I truly loved the super lightweight formula and for immediate absorption.
1) Hydro Boost Exfoliating Scrub
I swore to myself that I would at least scrub my face twice a week. But, finding a right gentle exfoliator is tough. Thankfully, I got the Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Exfoliating Scrub which is gentle enough to be used every day. It was refreshing after using their gentle cleanser. It is formulated with hyaluronic acid, it’s clinically proven to increase skin’s hydration level and lock it in – for instantly soft, supple, and refreshed skin. I totally love using it as part of my daily CTM.
2) Hydro Boost Multivitamin Booster
I have been using it for a few weeks. After cleansing the skin, I use the Neutrogena Hydro-Boost Multivitamin Booster as a serum. It contains vitamin E and purified hyaluronic acid which makes my skin hydrated. I usually use it in the night before applying the moisturizer. I love how soft and glowy my face is every morning. Overall, I just love how pretty it looks.
3) Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Shine
This particular shade is Velvet Wine, from the Neutrogena Hydro-Boost Hydrating Lip Shine. This is a very thick lipgloss and it is super moisturizing. I like how shiny it is, makes my date night more special.
4)Hydro Boost Water Gel Lotion SPF 50
A sunscreen is essential for me in my everyday skincare routine. I always loved Neutrogena's sunscreen and this is no exception. It is a light blue lotion which smells amazing and gets absorbed very quickly.
My summer has been better with @neutrogena and thanks for upgrading my skincare routine.
We had dinner recently at @yakinikushichirin. Don’t go here unless you’re very hungry! It was an epic meat fest at a Japanese style barbecue restaurant
Overall you can shoes from the all you can eat menu or a la carte. We chose the quality over quantity option where you can order wagyu meats, and more substantial udon dishes etc. was overall good but not great. A lot of the flavors have been tailored for local tastebuds. Obviously for these prices you aren’t expecting anything ground breaking. None the less the price still did climb and we left stuffed with a bill of about $400pp. A restaurant that definitely is more about eating a lot over excellent quality. Probably wouldn’t go back again.
I don't double dip often on games but really couldn't pass up getting the Special Edition of Marvel's Spider-Man on PS4!
Just finished the second act tonight so in final stages of the game now and trying to clean up all the side stuff before the last few story missions and I'm still constantly blown away by how this game plays!
I didn't think God of War would be topped or have anything come close to it this year but damn Insomniac have really knocked it out of the park with this one!
I really didn't think we'd ever get any other comic book video games that would come close to the Arkham games and even though I prefer DC and Batman over Marvel and Spidey as a whole I really think this game actually managed to improve on them games!
Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Assassin's Creed Odyssey will be next but I think playing this first will really dampen my experiences with them games even though I know I will like them.
Sony have always been great with the exclusives but this generation they really have stepped up a notch with Horizon, God of War and now Spider-Man releasing all within the space of 18 months is crazy especially for 3 games that each could be argued as the best game of this generation.
Makes me more hyped for the future of Sony and PlayStation with the quality of these games!
Two thirds into the game and so far it's easily a 9.5 out of 10 for me!
So I just completed #daxter . A fun little game before the events of Jak II (which I have played, loved and completed as well as Jak 1 and 3). Pros: great graphics and gameplay (platforming and QuickTime in the dream sequences which I personally enjoyed), similar if not the same as previous #jakanddaxter games, perks (gems/orb collecting), Cons: lag, short, repetitive, no objectives or map. Overall, crucial for a #psp gamer and, of course, die hard Jak fan like myself
“The people who came to her booth were seeking meaning and control – but they were looking in the wrong place. When they gave themselves over to superstition, they were giving up on shaping their own destiny.” — The Death Of Mrs. Westaway
some Ruth Ware love today + a #minireview of my most recent read: The Death Of Mrs. Westaway—4.5 ⭐️’s! When Hal Westaway receives a letter in the mail detailing a huge inheritance from her grandmother, she believes this is the answer to her prayers. Although she knows this was a mistake (as her grandparents died years before she was born), Hal decides to use her skills as a tarot card reader to collect the cash and pay off the debt that’s been building up since her mother’s death 3 years prior. When Hal gets to the Trepassen house for the funeral of her “grandmother,” however, she quickly realizes that something is not right and that each of the Westaways are hiding a huge secret...
I lovedddd this one. I was really excited to read this after loving both The Woman In Cabin 10 and In a Dark, Dark Wood and it did not disappoint. The only problem I had with this book was the pacing. Most of Ware’s books start off extremely slow (I had the same problem with The Lying Game and never ended up finishing it) but once it started to picked up, I couldn’t put it down. This book was really really creepy (in a good way) but sooo captivating and well thought-out. Probably my new favorite Ruth Ware book! Extremely caught off guard by all the twists—would recommend if you’re looking for a mystery thriller!
aufgebraucht nr. 2 💙
(Unbezahlte Werbung) -
l'oreal paris makeup-entferner☺️💧nicht die besten Inhaltsstoffe, aber hat seinen Job gut gemacht. Es war nicht zu ölig und hat alles abgenommen. Die blaue Ölphase war im Vergleich zur anderen etwas wenig, der Preis liegt leider bei ca. 5€ . Die neue Verpackung finde ich allerdings schon ansprechend 🙈 -
Balea After sport maske 😐 hat ziemlich gebrannt war auf der Haut und kühlt nur am Anfang. War aus dem Adventskalender 🕯
eucerin utra sensitive creme probe 👍🏻sehr angenehme und eher reichhaltige Creme -
bebe Waschgel und Augen Make-up Entferner 😐 war ganz okay, nicht besonders sanft oder praktisch zum Abschminken aber sehr ergiebig. Angenehmer bebe Geruch
essence brow and lash gel 😊 Nicht ganz aufgebraucht, aber abgelaufen (sah eklig aus 😅) Vollständige Review weiter unten, war ergiebig und solide und hinterließ ein wässriges Gefühl auf den Brauen. Einen ultra festen Halt verleiht es zwar nicht, aber ich war zufrieden. Würde ich mir theoretisch nachlaufen, aber habe jetzt das von alverde in Benutzung.
Braucht ihr auch so wenige Sachen auf? 😂💕
"The Invitation" - mini review
Age Rating: 14+ for Strong threat, infrequent bloody violence, language and sex references.
The Invitation is the greatest psychological Thriller/horror ever, the story, cinematography, acting, tension, suspense and everything is amazing. I hope directors watch this film and take notes and especially horror film directors. The chemistry between the actors is beyond amazing, the acting in general is phenomenal, the tension throughout the film is done so so well, the cinematography is brilliant and i have no more words to tell you how good this film is. Buy it, watch it and do a review of it. Trust me, this film doesn't disappoint. This film deserves multiple Oscars.

How is your weekend treating you?
The weather in Bhopal is super amazing, it’s drizzling!!!
Rain, coffee/tea and books..what more I could ask for?
Today’s #botd is “ Walk a Mile” authored by Ms.Joey Paul.
Thank you so much dear for sending me the review copy.
About the book-
It’s the year 2050 and it’s possible for people to literally walk a mile in someone else's shoes. Enter Hetti, eighteen, and fresh out of training college, joining the police force alongside her best friend Layla. She’s excited about finally getting to do some practical work after spending so long talking about it in college.
Except her first cases are throwing up a few confusing signs. Is it possible that someone is using the Walk A Mile software to kill? And if they are, can Hetti find them before they find her? 🖋
Joey never fails to surprise me.She always comes up with the stories/plots that you might have never heard before. The character of Hetti is really very strongly crafted which I really loved.The murders and the walk a mile technology kept me on the edge through out.Trust me on this, it’s a very good thriller.
I recommend this book to everyone who wants to read something fresh.
I wish Joey writes more such books in future.
#qotd -what is the best quality in you that you are proud of?
Thank you so much @read_eat_luv for this gorgeous photo and amazing review! ❤️🙏
Y’all, please head over to @read_eat_luv to follow this amazing bookstagrammer and share some love!
Repost @read_eat_luv with @get_repost
Today I am going to share my review of two very beautifully written books by Ms. Annie Woods.Thanks you author for sending me the review copies .The books are First Came Forever and Forever Disguised.Both the books are a part of the Angel Heart Saga.
When I started reading the first book, First came forever, I thought its a simple , cute YA romance fiction book, but as the story progressed and twists and turns were introduced, I was glued to it.Wow!!!just wow is the word if you ask me to summarise it.It has some #lgbtq stuff to which I really enjoyed reading.Usually love triangles don’t fascinate me much but this one has so much to it.I loved the first part. Ok so coming to the sequel, Forever Disguised, turned out to be as good as the first.Annie has crafted her character so well that I could see them through the pages.I was mesmerised, terrified ,petrified all at the same time.I really loved Erica, she has become my favourite now.The book gave me beautiful memories which will stay with me for a long time.
I wish Annie writes more such beautiful books in future.
#qotd -have you ever dealt with a heart break?
SYLVIA at the Old Vic. I have really mixed feelings about this! There’s no denying it’s a powerful show, and certain scenes left me breathless or in tears. But it needs a good edit - it’s just too long! I think the middle bit of the first act in particular drags quite a bit and is repetitive. But I love what they’re trying to do, and I hope it transfers and gets a bit of a rehaul (but keeps the cast) because it could be spectacular! It was also very cool how strongly British it was. Not just the history and characters, obviously, but also the style of hip hop is really U.K. influenced, with a bit of funk and maybe even some 90s garage music thrown in. #londontheatre#jennatevents#minireview#thesearegettinglonger
🦁Lozione ricci definiti di @biofficinatoscana #minireview
Lo sto usando da una settimana, sia come styling prima dell’asciugatura che la mattina per ravvivare il riccio prima di uscire di casa.
Certificata ICEA, non contiene siliconi o altri ingredienti non permessi dalla cosmetica ecobio, come tutti i prodotti di questo brand. Svolge un’azione protettiva da phon, sole, agenti atmosferici e smog.
È sicuramente un ottimo prodotto, dalle materie prime pregiate (estratto di rosmarino, salvia, burro di karitè, aloe, pantenolo ecc), ma sul risultato sinceramente pensavo meglio.
Sul mio capello, il riccio non resta poi così definito 👉 vedi la seconda foto. Lo è decisamente di più con il gel di aloe di @equilibra_ita o il fluido al miele di @maternatura.it.
Sui vostri capelli, che effetto fa?
Regrann from @elexmedia - #BookReviews#RobinsonCrusoe from @dust_pain
Buku ini menceritakan tentang petualangan Robinson Crusoe setelah dia memutuskan pergi dari rumah untuk melaut. Banyak hal yang terjadi selama dia melaut. Mulai dari dia yang nyaris tak selamat karena badai, dijadikan budak, memiliki perkebunan di Brazil, sampai terdampar di sebuah pulau terpencil dan mencoba bertahan hidup di sana selama hampir 30 tahun lamanya.
Baca buku ini memang harus sedikit sabar, karena isinya mayoritas narasi, sangat deskriptif, dan bergaya memoar. Ceritanya sih menurutku simpel-simpel saja. Tapi, bisa kulihat yang ditonjolkan dari buku ini adalah perenungan atas apa yang dialami Robinson Crusoe. Robin bukan orang yang religius. Tapi, semenjak mengalami kejadian-kejadian buruk dan selalu selamat, dia mulai merenungkan kembali campur tangan Sang Pencipta terhadap hidupnya.
Banyak sekali pemikiran-pemikiran Robin yang 'dalam' di buku ini mengenai hakikat Tuhan. Aku sampai ngerasa yang... ah, ya bener juga kata-kata Robin, sambil menandai kalimat-kalimat yang quotable pakai sticky notes. Gak tahunya kok banyak banget sampai sticky notes-nya mau habis, haha. Mungkin pemikiran Robin sesuai sama pemikiranku juga, makanya aku setuju sama kalimatnya. Sayangnya, ternyata buku ini masih bersambung. Aku jadi penasaran seperti apa kisah hidup Robin selanjutnya setelah dia pindah ke Inggris.
Berhubung buku ini menarik, jadi ku-review juga di blog. Link-nya bisa dilihat di bio @dust_pain

So after a month waiting finally my @vtcosmetics_official Collagen Pact came! I bought the special edition of their collaboration with @bts.bighitofficial
FYI, i'm not an ARMY guys so i'm not buy it because it has 'BTS' on it, ok let's straight to the review
Tbh i really love the packaging, trendy yet very simple and look expensive, when the protective seal of the pact is opened u'll see the beautiful marble collagen pact (picture 3)
The pact contains a lot of collagen and SPF 50+/PA+++. I choose the black type which has semi matte finish n mine is No. 23 and ya too light for my medium skintone 😥 The coverage is light to med so i'm not recommend this for those who has a lot of skin problem like scar or redness but somehow i like it because my skin conditions not too bad 😁
Btw when i apply it to my face it feels kinda tacky and it smells like an acrylic paint ugh, i think the smell is from the sponge 😕😕 But it goes well on my skin, very very light and make my skin glow👌
Price : 35.000 ₩ or around 400.000 IDR
📖Judul: Raisha dan Trisula Raja 📕Penulis: T. F. Kurniawan 📚Penerbit: Metamind 🌆Genre: Cersil, teenlit
Harusnya penulis memperlakukan novel beraura cersil ini layaknya 'Kupu-Kupu Fort de Kock' karya Maya Lestari GF, bukannya terjebak dalam teenlit. Konflik Raisha, sang heroine tidak relevan dengan struktur dan konten cerita. Penulis menghabiskan waktu dengan sia-sia, membuat cerita, penokohan dan tema menjadi dangkal. Parahnya, sang penulis nampaknya tidak paham betul dengan penggunaan senjata trisula (cabang) yang notabene adalah fokus utama novel ini. Dijelaskan bahwa trisula (harusnya cabang, karena trisula adalah jenis mata tombak) adalah jenis senjata belati dan digunakan untuk menusuk dan membabat. Padahal cabang adalah senajata pertahanan, cenderung mirip tameng. Penulis juga terlalu merujuk pada Elektra, karakter heroine/antiheroine Marvel, padahal cabang kan salah satu senjata khas dalam dunia persilatan, mengapa tidak mengadopsi jurus-jurus silat saja? .
Namun begitu nampaknya saya masih tetap menantikan sekuel novel ini karena jelas sang penulis menyisakan terlalu banyak pertanyaan di dalam ceritanya. Namun bila tiada sekuel yang direncanakan, sudah pasti novel ini menjadi salah satu novel bertema cerita silat yang terburuk yang pernah saya baca. .
Terminata la crema corpo al karité di @equilibra_ita ..una crema idratante e protettiva senza parabeni ,petrolati ,siliconi e peg..una crema davvero idratante e soffice che non lascia scia bianca, ricca di burro di karitè infatti lo troviamo al secondo posto nell'inci ..dal profumo dolce ma allo stesso tempo delicato 🍃 mi è piaciuta davvero tanto in quanto non unge la pelle e si assorbe facilmente pur essendo così nutriente.. lascia la pelle davvero morbida ed idratata una crema perfetta per l'inverno 👍 #minirecensione#minireview#cremacorpo#buoninci#inciverde#equilibra
