Todays Makeup. Yellow and Orange

Lately I've been into yellow and orange in my makeup. I've never thought about using yellow before. The shimmery one in this palette is subtle and fresh for my skin tone so I can wear it with confidence. Mainly I've kept the makeup matte with the exception of the eyeshadow. Matte makeup is also something I like now. And will continue to wear. 

Main products in my makeup: Revlon Ultra Hd Matte Lipcolor in shade Embrace, I Heart Revolution Now That's What I Call Makeup 90s eyeshadow palette and L´oreal Infallible 24H-Matte foundation in shade 10 Porcelain.

Dreamy Notebook

Of all notebooks I've owned this is most salient. The color combination is intense.
The design dreamy and cool. The notebook cover is soft. I really like that! It feels a bit luxurious. I would buy more notebooks like this. I found it in a TGR shop in Oslo not long ago. They had other notebooks too with soft cover. This one is lined.

Read Lately. In a Dark, Dark Wood(2015) by Ruth Ware

I found a good crime book last month and read it in a week. The story and atmosphere were interesting. I would recommend it to everyone interesting in the genre. "In a Dark, Dark Wood"(2015) is written by Ruth Ware. 

 Leonora(Nora) is invited to a gathering for her old friend (Clare). Leonora  has not seen Clare in 10 years. She is told that her friend is going to get married. However she is not invited to the wedding and that makes her nervous. The gathering becomes a nightmare. The people there act a bit strange. It's like several thinks: I'm not here to get friends! Leonora gets a memory loss after something terrible happens. She ends up in hospital, then runs away to puzzle pieces of  what happened during that time together.

The atmosphere is electrical. The characters and their knowledge of each other well described. And their curiousity for each other well shown. And a secret is revealed. 

It was difficult to put down this book! That group of people together was interesting to read about. The language was vibrant. There were interesting details. Some for instance that shows Leonoras strenght. I liked that the main character is such a determined person. And that she is an author. She is definitely observant. Already on the first page one can tell she is a determined person. When she is running in that wood desperate for help. 

Something else I liked was that the mystery was solved fast. With that electrical atmosphere that was a good thing. I wished the book was longer! This was a very nice reading experience. 

What do you think about this book?

New in the Beauty Bag

Revlon nail polish Desirable and Ultra Hd Matte Lipcolor Embrace.

It's time for some new makeup. I only want a copule new things but products I will like for a long time. I've collected new items from Revlon. A brand I've been curious about because of their color selection. I bought this nail polish and lip gloss. These products catched my atttention first so I selected them.

Earlier I've tried a peach lipstick, cream rouge and red nail polish from Revlon. Which all became favorite products. Perhaps this will be a new favorite brand for me.

I'm wearing the lip gloss in this photo. I would say it looks a bit warmer then here. More like in the first photo.

What is new in your beauty bag? :)

Skin Like Foundation

Dermacol Imperial Make-Up foundation. Color pale.

I like natural looking makeup a lot. This foundation is maybe the most natural looking one I've tried. What is yours? I prefer my skin not to shine visible through makeup and still do. This foundation gives a type of glow I like. As if it has a touch of solar powder in it. A touch of solar powder too makes the foundation pop. The foundation feels luxurious and is not sticky at all! Texture wise it is the best high street foundation I have tried.

Pretty Pink Saturday Haul

Hi there! How are you? I'm glad it is weekend. It has been a long week with more activity than usual. And tomorrow I have an extra day to rest. I always have Mondays to do that. I wonder how to spend it best. 

  I had to buy some things yesterday and found some needed cosmetics. And a new scented candle. One far sweeter then I usually buy. It is a cute candle in baby pink color with a silver lid. The candle smells of roses. I think it will be a repurchase. And maybe the cosmetics. One thing is for sure I like the scent of these Missguided products! The body mist will probably be one of my February favorite products. The Missguided products design is salient. They look pretty on the bath room shelf. The spray has a subtle portion of shimmer in it. The scent of the other products is milder. That totally works for me. I like a combination of strong and mild scents.

Just Read

A Stranger in the House (2017) by Shari Lapena

This is the first book I've finished in 2019. It was nice to read it. The first half was a little intense. Gradually it turned quite interesting. And the ending was amazing.

Story: There is little peace for main characters Karen, husband Tom and neighbour Brigid in this story. Karen crashes a car, claims memory loss and is investigated for murder. Karen express worries about someone beeing in their house uninvited. They don't see anyone. And Brigid who's a friend of Karen shows strange and scary behaviour. Brigid has great interest in her neighbours Karen and Tom. She has a place in her house with view to their house. She has glued herself to this spot! I can imagine her sleeping there. Karen thinks Brigid might be useful in the investigation. At a certain point investigators turn their attention to Brigid too.

The most interesting to me was Brigid's behaviour, the expressed worries about someone entering the house of Tom and Brigid without them knowing it and the ending. Something totally new happened  that showed how much things will change for these three. I loved it! And would like to read something similar.
