So excited about the new @kyliecosmetics highlighters (Kylighters lol!) Anyone noticed how similar they look to @iheartmakeupldn and @makeuprevolution Bronze and Glow and Light and Glow palettes?!? (These are not my pics obvs)

As if I needed an excuse to go buy some more @tam.beauty πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Book: Captain Outrageous by Joe R Lansdale. I first came across Joe R Lansdale's hilarious characters Hap and Leonard at the doctors surgery of all places. An old battered copy of this book was in the reading pile in the waiting room. By the time my name was called I knew I had to get the book for myself and finish it. Have you read any of the books in the Hap and Leonard series?

This is possibly one of my favourite books in the @stephenking Dark Tower series. It starts so strong and just pulls you right back in.

Who remembers Christopher Pike?? I used to love reading his books as a teenager and found these in some of my old things and of course blazed through them once again! He seemed to have a knack of hitting the right amount of hamminess that can come with a lot of teen horror with just a smidge of sarcasm and wit. Would love to own the collection some day. Do any of you love #christopherpike and still enjoy his books in adulthood? Which were your faves?
Mine were Slumber Party, Chain Letter and Remember Me.. πŸ˜„
β˜†
β˜†
Edit: If they look in pretty good nick it's because they had those old plastic library covers on as I bought them in a jumble sale so I didn't question the origin of them πŸ˜‚ The plastic covers were yellowing and the books were slightly faded but otherwise well protected πŸ‘ Also these are the newer editions and not what the books I would have read in school looked like but I still love 'em!

These @nyxcosmetics matte lip creams are so easy to slap on on a day to day basis. I have some mauvey and pinky nudes but then had to grab Barcelona for a splash of bright red blood 😍😍😍 β˜†

Love using the @makeuprevolution Pro Hygiene Sanitising Solid Brush Cleaner and a silicone cleansing pad I picked up from eBay. Also have a huge washing up bowl with kids bath wash to dunk dirty brushes into first.

Set of five red lipsticks by @freedommakeup because if your only night out is at Jezebel's you can't go wrong with a splash of red lippie 😜
Also look at the cosy warm colours in the @morphebrushes 35O palette? Still loving this so much if only the palette had a mirror..

Book: The Apartment which I got in a swap but haven't yet read. The cover is really pretty with the gold embossed key. Here is a little praise for the book written by S.L. Grey β€œThe Apartment defies preconceptions…This book is a slow boil that sinks the hook early with a sense that all is not well while creating an overall air of unpredictability that continues to its chilling conclusion…Grey creates such a state of unease that after reading The Apartment, one may be loathe to ever leave town–or maybe even home–again.”

Kylie is Legend πŸ˜‰
KJKJKJKJKJKJKJKJKJKJKJKJKJKJKJ
@kyliecosmetics Koko Collection and the Burgundy Palette. I was a little sceptical of this palette but I think I was being a bit harsh as on a second review I absolutely love the colour choice. I still think the shimmers could have been more intense but the mattes are excellent so that kind of makes up for it😜I was desperate for the Koko Collection liquid lipsticks the first time around but missed the boat so when @kyliejenner announced a final restock I had to get this plus the palette with the free international shipping deal. I've also ordered a couple more of the lipkits.. Do you own this palette? If so post your looks below I would love some inspiration!!!
β˜†
β˜†
Book: Another look at this classic I Am Legend by Richard Matheson as I've started reading it again. I've said before it's such a cool book way ahead of its time. But what really makes this zombie/vampire/apocalypse story is the strangely uplifting ending. I won't write any spoilers but if you are into horror/sci fi and want to try something different read this.

I finally started reading the compilation of short stories selected by #georgerrmartin and #gardnerdozois "Rogues". Currently reading a #joeabercrombie short entitled Tough Times All Over and it kind of has a Braavos type setting/backdrop. Excited to continue reading! Who out there has read "Rogues"??

Loving this little combo of lip products. For some reason it's coming off a little red on camera but it's actually @maccosmeticsuk Taupe matte lipstick, Spice lipliner and Temper Tantra Kissable Lip colour. These all have a mauvey, natural tone to them, perfect as a deep nude for medium skintones πŸ˜„

Fortune Favours the Brave and the contoured.. πŸ˜‰
A closer look at two of my current favourites from @makeuprevolution. I've almost hit pan on a few of the shades in the Ultra Contour Palette because it's so perfect for everyday even when all I want to do is wear a little concealer under the eyes I still get this out for the highlighting matte powders to set everything with. πŸ‘
The #fortunefavoursthebrave palette is just so pretty and love that there are a few matte transition shades in there too so you can create umpteen different looks.
πŸ‘
Still loving my #dolcegabbana lipstick in Cashmere as it's the perfect nude. I also wanted to feature my @nuxefrance huile prodigiuse as it's a lovely little primer before applying makeup. Also still loving using @lorealmakeup Color Riche Mono Eyeshadow in Gold Mania for highlight. The necklace is by Dolce and Gabbana Jewellery

Rose Γ‰clat
Soft pink hues always look feminine and romantic. A look like that needs to be balanced with fresh, rosy skin and lips.
🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️🏡️ @revlon_uk Highlight powder in Rose Γ‰clat is a muted pale pink shimmer and with a light hand it has that lit from within effect. 🏡️
For a gentle hydrating slick of nude colour I really enjoy using @revlon Colourburst Lacquer Balm in Ingenue as it is so moisturising and has a light colour payoff and a yummy peppermint flavour to gently plump the lips. 🏡️
For a beautiful fresh dewy base you can't go wrong with @toofaced Hangover Primer infused with coconut water 🏡️

Story of Life: The evolution of.. contour palettes! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Seriously though, how beautiful is this children's book? It was a very kind gift to my daughter (thanks @kirenv 😘) and has a pull out centre with the most stunning illustrations showing Darwin's theory of evolution.
β˜†

I have to say I love efficient makeup products and by that I mean small, travel friendly, multi tasking palettes. Particularly blush, contour and highlight kits. They make life so much easier on the go. Here we have the @sleekmakeup contour and highlight palette in medium. The highlight is a little chunky so I have to blend it afterwards but otherwise very nicely pigmented and sturdy packaging πŸ‘‘ @makeuprevolution Ultra Sculpt and Contour kit is another life saver on the go with beautiful blush, contour and highlight shades. This is actually Fair although I'm a medium skin tone. πŸ‘‘ @rimmellondonuk Kate Golden Bronze Sculpting Palette is very pretty particularly that coral blush shade. What are your favourite multi tasking face products?

Rediscovering my Horror in TV compilation. It features this little thriller of a story by Edgar Allan Poe called William Wilson. A kind of very early version of Single White Female.. or is it? It is so so richly written just look at this sentence: "I had always felt aversion to my uncourtly patronymic and it's very common, if not plebeian praenomen." It's a pretty creepy tale written in first person and I really enjoyed it.
β˜†
β˜†
@narsissist skincare products are so beautiful and slightly underrated. They are expensive of course, but in my opinion worth it. The Hydrating Freshening Lotion plumps up the skin before your eyes and this overnight mask smells so good but also intensively hydrates. πŸ‘

Korean Beauty Haul! This little lot was a decent bargain. Everything £22 from TK Maxx. Yes I'm supposed to be on a ban BUT I've been after some of these things for a long time so couldn't resist 😢
I've spoken in a previous post about @tonymoly.official Panda's Dream Brightening Eye Base. Such a cute little guy.. 🐼 Another example of cutesy packaging is the @tonymoly.us_official Egg Pore Blackhead Steam Pack. I've read great reviews and looking forward to trying it. Have you tried it? What do you think? πŸ—» Been after a new sleeping pack as my @laneige_us Water Sleeping Mask is almost finished. This honey based @holikaholika_official Canola sleep pack sounds perfect for my dry sensitive skin πŸ—» I really didn't need anymore sheet masks but these were Β£1.99 each and one looked like too much fun to try and the other intrigued me. The #drsyul @swanicoco.en Swanicoco Shining Luminous Mask Pack looked positively scientific and claims to brighten so let's give it a whirl πŸ—» This SNP Animal Soothing Mask is exactly as shown on the front a bright green dragon mask. I have a feeling a rare selfie may be posted on here soon πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚

@lagirlcosmetics Pro HD Foundation in Tan - Can I just say how amazed I am by this foundation?!? I have said before how fussy I am when it comes to foundation and how difficult I find swaying from my holy grail @narsissist Sheer Glow. However this budget buy ticks so many boxes! It doesn't oxidise, lasts 12 hours, doesn't fade or go patchy, covers pores and blemishes smoothly and doesn't dry cakey or powdery. My only slight complaints would be the colour is perhaps a half shade darker but as it's the correct undertone concealer helps even that out. Also it has a slightly too dewy finish but as I have dry skin I don't mind it! Also pairs beautifully with the @lagirlcosmetics Pro HD concealers πŸ”Έ @stilacosmetics Stay ALL DAY eyeliner in Amber πŸ”Έ @maccosmeticsuk custom palette with Amber Lights now showing two patches of pan yes! πŸ”Έ @makeuprevolution Vivid Baked Bronzer πŸ”Έ @thisworksofficial In Transit Camera Closeup β˜†

The Land of Green Ginger.. and Pandas 🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼
This little guy had to have his own spot. @tonymoly.us_official Panda's Dream Brightening Eye Base. It has a brightening mattifying effect under the eyes but doesnt dehydrate. It's apparently packed full of ingredients to luminize and revitalise the under eye area. It is also a pretty great eyeshadow base. That packaging tho.. 😍😍🐼🐼🐼🐼😍😍😍🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼

Book: I felt compelled to raid my daughters' library shelves instead of mine to complement the cuteness of the product. I selected this interestingly titled classic book by Noel Langley who also wrote The Wizard of Oz. The Land of Green Ginger is a kind of sequel to Aladdin. I look forward to when my daughters are a little older so I can read some of these books to them at bedtime. (At the moment its mostly Peppa Pig books 😣) #noellangley #wizardofoz #landofgreenginger #childrensbooks #tonymoly #panda #kbeauty #kmakeup #koreanbeauty

Lazy Sunday photography

I was mulling over some of my makeup - smoothie and book in hand - and just decided to *click* there and then..! This is NOT my whole collection but just some newer items which I haven't yet sorted into my acrylic makeup drawers 😢
Too many brands to mention but I will try to tag a few in the actual post.

Book: "I Am Legend" by Richard Matheson. This short story was written in 1954 but it is so ahead of its time, so moving and such a perfect blend of horror and sci fi. It's just.. cool. And no nothing like the Will Smith movie. When I heard they were making that I was so excited then so disappointed when I eventually watched it. It's an entertaining movie in its own right but pays little homage to this masterpiece.
