Ready Player One

So I've been absolutely loving my #currentread Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. It's a complete geekfest of 80s trivia movie references, video game references, comics etc etc all wrapped up in an amazingly "real" dystopian not too distant future. It's written in first person so you are immediately there with him and empathise with his existence and his quest. You can see why this is being made into a movie as it's immensely visual. Which actually is no easy feat considering a lot of the book is set in a an online visual simulation game/world. I'm only a small way through the book but finding it hard to put down. Have you read it?? What are your thoughts?

Needed to stock up on a decent waterproof mascara. I usually go for @@lorealmakeup as it's such a reliable drugstore brand for mascara. My current fave formula and wand is the false lash sculpt but it doesn't come in waterproof formula 😭 So I decided to try the new #missbabyroll mascara and so far so good! Curling and lengthening πŸ‘Œ

Makeup Forever
❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️
Picked up the pro sculpting duo in no 2 by @makeupforeverofficial at @tkmaxx for just Β£12. It's a beautiful bronze and highlight combo with a textured high pigmented finish in the pan. I thought this would be great for travel. The highlight shade is like liquid gold and the bronzer blends like butter.

Book: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. This is my next book club read and I'm dying to get stuck in. I am in the middle of reading Salems Lot but not gaining much traction on it so I'm fine to pause it while I start this. The story is set in aΒ dystopian future and the main character Wade Watts takes partΒ in aΒ virtual reality game. If he wins in finding the golden egg he will inherit a valuable fortune in a world torn apart by an energy crisis. This is being adapted for the silver screen by none other than Spielberg himself so watch out for that too.

Battle of the Hydrating Sprays
πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰
I love the @tatcha Dewy Skin Mist however it's so hard to get hold of here in the UK and very expensive. I looked into the key ingredients and Squalane is the main component which creates the hydrating and dewy finish. So I set out to find something with Squalane which I could use as a dupe. I present to you the @tropicskincare Vitamin Toner mist. Key ingredient - Squalane along with lots of other goodies for the skin. All natural too. It doesn't give as much luminosity as the Tatcha spray but that's a good thing as it's easy to look like an oil slick if you get carried away with the Tatcha spray. Tropics Skincare are one of those hard sell beauty companies so don't blame me if you get bombarded by reps! But if you can find a nice rep or order online it is a lovely setting spray.

What better makeup to pair with a book about a Vampire?! @katvondbeauty Shade and Light palette and @kikomilano Scultping Touch Creamy Stick Contour of course! πŸ˜‰
I'm re- reading Salems Lot by Stephen King because it's been such a long time I reckon it's almost like reading it fresh. Expecting some real chills from this one! β˜†

Kiko Love
πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„ I am very impressed with the quality of @kikomilano lipsticks. They are so rich and creamy yet still matte. Also a very good price point. And the packaging.. I mean Wow! Heavy, with a metal exterior and it closes tight with a satisfying click. No plastic in sight! This is the Velvet Passion lipstick range.

June Empties!
πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ
I finally finished my @caudalie Divine Oil and towards the end of the use of it I went off it a little. I don't know if that's because it coincided with a bad skin period or what but I was glad to use it up.
I also easily finished my @urbandecaycosmetics All Nighter setting spray which is still one of my faves! I now have the @gerardcosmetics Slay all Day and my @tropicskincare Vitamin Toner so I'm good for setting sprays. Incidentally I also finished my @makeuprevolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup mist. Oh and I also use a coconut hydrating spray as toner every day. So. Yes I'm good for sprays Haha!
I finished the @thebodyshop Seaweed Clarifying Night Lotion and this needs to be replaced with something similar so I'm on the hunt for something suitable for dry sensitive skin which can treat blemishes over night.
I do occasionally finish makeup items too 😜 and hit pan on all my fave shades from the @makeuprevolution Ultra Contour palette. Then the hinge broke so I decided to just throw it away as it was irritating to use it when I couldn't close or store it properly. Love this kit as a wonderful drugstore option and would definitely repurchase but I need to start using other things up so I've moved on to my @katvondbeauty Shade and Light contour kit which is amazing!

Book: Saigon by Anthony Grey "Vietnam's heady tropical landscape captivates fifteen-year-old Joseph Sherman on a hunting expedition to French colonial Saigon with his family in 1925. He is lured back again and again by his enduring fascination for the country and for Lan, a beautiful Vietnamese mandarin's daughter he could never forget."
I haven't yet read this book but I want to start it today. I have to say this type of historical drama (melodrama) does really appeal to me and I have always been fascinated by Vietnamese history. β˜†

@tartecosmetics make such beautiful products. Someone explain why they are not more accessible in Europe?? 😣 I hope the likes of @beautybaycom @cultbeauty @beautylish are taking note!
This little gem is a strip of contour powder with 2 highlighter powders. All shades are creamy and smooth and very pigmented. It's a very handy little palette which smells like chocolate too.

@makeuprevolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray. Aside from the inevitable alcohol the ingredients list is actually very appealing with horse chestnut and aloe vera. I finished this spray having used it pretty much every day for work and it definitely helps makeup to last really well. I may try something else from the range, probably the illuminating spray, next! β˜†
β˜†β˜†EDIT thanks to @revolution.cult for featuring me 😘

I brought the @kyliecosmetics Burgundy Palette with me on holiday as the shades seem to blend perfectly with a tan. Golds, ambers, bronzes all look so beautiful and subtle against my skin tone.

Decided to change my post to my #currentlyreading #currentread #khaledhosseini #thekiterunner. I've posted about this before but not read it. Now that I am free from the behemoth that is IT I can finally read some other books. Pretty sure I can crack this in a day or so on a child free relaxing vacay πŸ˜‰ then I have a decent action packed read on my kindle which I can dive into.
