Favourite posts haven't been my thing for a very long time. And I don't really know why. June has come to an end and I thought a favourites post is more than welcome this time of the month. It has been probably the busiest time of the year for me but somehow I've managed to try somethings out and read a few books. Without further ado, let's get started.
MAC Eyebrow pencil I've already talked about this gem in my Oath to MAC post. The consistency and pen form are its best qualities. The colour I've been using this month is Lingering, which is a soft taupe brown. It doesn't require sharpening and it works like a pen, I honestly think is one of the best brow products in the market.
Rimmel London Concealer I've been a huge fan of the Rimmel London Wake me up collection for years. Despite being a drugstore brand, Rimmel London products are as good as some high end cosmetics. Rimmel foundations are a summer favourite of my mine but I reckon I could use the Wake me up concealer all year long. I absolutely love it. It'd been a few months since I'd used it so I decided to pick up another one and I haven't stopped using it ever since.
Essence Contouring Palette During this passed months I've been doing my contouring with separate bronzers, highlighters and blushers but since I bought this palette I haven't stopped using it. I've got the Shape your face palette in 10 Ready, set, peach! and the shade I probably love the most is the peachy tone blusher. It's amazing. It blends really well and gives you the pre summer glow everybody's talking about these months.
MAC Cremesheen Glass lipgloss in Deelight The thing I love the most about MAC products is their endurance. I bought this lipgloss ages ago and I still wear it as if I'd bought it the day before. If you want to see more pics of me wearing it I highly recommend you take a look around one my latest posts. Deelight is a very light and pretty shade which matches with everything.
MAC Lip pencil in OAK I picked up this lip pencil a month ago from MAC and I haven't stopped wearing it ever since. I still can't believe I've found a highly pigmented lip pencil in a nude shade which actually matches my skin tone. I have also talked about this favourite of mine in another post.
Well, this is funny. I found out this glorious website called GoodReads where you can register books you want to read or are currently reading. It's a really good way to remember what you've read throughout the years. So that made me remember that period of my life when I couldn't stop reading. Did I enjoy that. I haven't stopped reading but A - Levels made it hard to do multiple things at the same time so when 2016 started I set myself a challenge. I'm trying to read a hundred book throughout this year. I'm currently 31 books behind my schedule, which is quite bad, but I'm hoping this summer I'll be able to catch up on it. So after this big ol' ramble I can finally talk about the books I've read and loved in June. I've read a total of eleven books in between May and June but only four have made the cut. I'm a very critic person so bear with me.
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell The one thing I absolutely despise about romantic novels is the fluff and inability to write properly a complicated love story. Rainbow Rowell is the wise woman who has been capable of writing a very very very sad book in the most amazing way possible. The thing about this novel is that every single chapter has been written beautifully. I've learnt a lot about the later 80' and good old music. Park's characterisation was pretty good but. Oh. Eleanor. She probably has every chance to be repulsed by everyone. In some ways she reminds me of myself. The thing I love the most about this book is how the writer can write about two characters at the same time without confusing you. The italics are definitely the best part of the book (Eleanor thoughts). I really liked this book in general. I don't want to give you details about the end but don't expect Eleanor to change her mind.
A Work in Progress by Connor Franta Oh, I'm not really a kind of autobiography-reader but this book actually caught my eye. I never thought I would end up looking up to someone after reading an autobiography. I love the way, very delicate, Connor describes his childhood as well as the problems he came upon his life path. It was really inspiring in some ways. My favourite chapter of this book is called Levels of friendship. It sums up everything I went through a few years ago. It somehow scares me how quick I got over it but yeah, I really think all it was about is what Connor likes to call an acquaintance. I've got this weird habit of sticking little post it notes or highlighting words when I think something is very interesting or a potential topic of conversation. This book is full of highlighted words. It's incredibly amazing.
The perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chbosky I suppose the vague majority of you have already watched the film. I have. Which is why I decided to read the book. I usually read a book before watching a film so I have an idea of what I'm about to see but I actually hadn't read the book this time. Did I like the film? I did, I think it was great. I think I liked it because it was actually adapted and directed by Stephen Chbosky, author of the book. Patrick is my favourite character of the book because his actually the person who's never left Charlie's side even after this big discussion with Sam. The thing is that Charles characterisation in the film is brilliant, while Peter isn't good enough (in my humble opinion). I definitely recommend this book. It's brilliant. Probably one of my favourites.
Fans of the Impossible Life by Kate Scelsa I found this book while having a look around GoodReads. I did not expect it to be as good as I think it is. The book is about three friends, which are called Mira, Sebby and Jeremy. The special thing about the novel is how Scelsa was able to combine problems such as depression or unhappiness with sexuality. It's brilliant how well organized this book is. Starting from the delicacy with the author deals with romantic emotions. Mira and Sebby are both well built characters but Jeremy is by far the best one of them. It's quite hard to describe my feelings while reading about a person who is in love with both his best friends in different ways. Sebby brings out confidence in Jeremy while Miranda personifies strength herself.
