Lipstick Favorite































Makeup Mekka Nude lipstick in color Pure

Lipsticks has not been in my weekly makeup for a while. This one is my newest and the one I use most. Orange is a seldom lipstick color in my makeup stash. But this one feels great! It is a nice everyday lipstick.

July Face Mask

Soap & Glory Radiance-Boosting Mask






























This month I have been using this sheet mask a lot. The first thing I noticed were the fresh scent. It is amazing. I barely see any immediate difference on skin which can some times be seen after using skin care products. That does not mean that I like this face mask less then others.

The face mask certainly makes me relaxed and my skin feels happy. I some times leave it on for 30 mintes. Time flies when relaxing too.

This mask is suppose to make skin look glowy. I see a bit of that effect but not much. But I might use this face mask again!

A Love for Face Masks





























For a long time my favorite skin care products have been face masks. Especially the leave on masks before bedtime and sheet masks.

Good sheet masks feels calming on the skin and makes me relax properly. I like to use sheet masks weekly. And do prefere the moisturing ones. I don't like strong fragrances. Some are quite uncomfortable with their strong scent.

Whereas sheet masks makes me more relaxed and I can so far see a subtile difference after use, some leave on masks makes a bigger difference that I see next day.  

I would certainly like to try many different sheet masks. And look for better quality. For example I know Korean skin care products can be great. 

Do like face masks? Do you have recommendations?

Book Recommendation. The Hunting Party






























I love reading a book that is hard to put down. I finished this one(The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley) after a couple days. 

This book reminds me about "In a Dark, Dark Wood" by Ruth Ware. Which is nice. That is one of my favorites books.

The story takes place in an isolated winter landscape in Scotland. A group of friends joins to celebrate their long lasting friendships as a ritual. A storm isolates the area and during the storm one of the workers there finds a dead body in the snow. The dead has been strangled. And was one of the guests. 

In the mean time the group is falling apart. The killer tries to kill again. I was surprised to see who the guilty person was. 

One thing that did not surprise were the low moral of the individuals generally. I usually want there to be some good characters. There is atmosphere like a veil covering a bit of everything. It is a well written story but some things are repeated much. Something interesting comes out of it. With all the repeated focus on the characters, they seem to melt away when things really fall apart. Like they stops to exist. 

The story is told by many characters. It took some time to get used to it. For instance many seemed so alike. In chapter one we meet Emma who is excited about the holiday. The other seem more or less interested. 

I might read it again one day.

Entertainment Lately


Movie recommendation: Dangerous Lies (2020)

A young couple has money problems and are feeling desperate. They get a job for him through her work.  From then on they work together for a kind, old man in his home. He support them with extra money and dies suddenly one day not long after. They get the house. But someone creates trouble for them and wants their home.

Sometimes the police wants to talk with the couple and they want to shun away from the police. But can they deal with the difficulties they experience alone?
Things truly gets worse.

I found the movie interesting and atmospheric. This movie is different from others I have seen. The problem with having little money is a typical problem but I could not recall any movie I have seen in the past that reminds about this. I think some reasons are that everything happen in few places. That there are little violence and not so many characters we see a lot of.

If you see it I hope you will enjoy it too. 🙂

Have you seen a movie lately you want to recommend? 🙂

Airport Haul. L:A Bruket

































The haul: L:A Bruket Lip Balm Almond/Coconut and L:A Bruket Hand Cream Bergamot/Patchouli


I was in airports a while ago and hoped to find L:A Bruket cosmetics. It seems like an interesting brand. I wanted to buy again one of their hand creams and try something else. I decided to buy a lip balm.

The size is good. The design is pretty! The lip balm seems some days good and other okay when it comes to moisture. The hand cream is one of my favorite skin care products. It smells so good!! The scent i so calming and uplifting. I love it! The moisture level is pretty good.

The packaging however on the hand cream can be damaged. The surface seems hard but can break some places and cream leak.

The lip balm has some scent. I would like it better if it had a calming scent like the hand cream. I will probably buy the lip balm again and the hand cream for sure!
