A cuddle in a bottle and The Moonlight Dreamers.
I don't have many favourites this month, but I have a couple of beauty things to share with you and my favourite book of the month. I could have mentioned a certain NARS foundation here for about the tenth time, but let's keep it fresh shall we?
Clinique High Impact Mascara
I would love to try the cult classic Bottom Lash Mascara from Clinique, but as of now the High Impact Mascara is my only mascara experience from this brand. I have been using my Maybelline Lash Sensational an awful lot, but I fancied something a little lighter and natural looking which was when this came in handy. I know you can build this mascara up to be quite dramatic looking, but I really love pushing this right to the root of the lash and gently brushing the wand through instead of going full hog.
Lush The Comforter Shower Cream
This has graced NZ shores recently (although I have been rather slow at giving it a shot), and I for one was so excited when I saw my fave bubble bar had been extended to a liquid form. Let's talk about the smell first of all, because with all Lush products, that's got to be the main selling point right? This is very sweet and very addictive. I am not a fan of Snow Fairy at all, but this is super lovely. The smell does linger on the skin afterwards and that's always a good thing. The formula itself doesn't lather too much but gently gives moisture to the skin.
The Moonlight Dreamers by Siobhan Curham*
I was very kindly sent a book proof of The Moonlight Dreamers a while back and I was so pleased, definitely some of my favourite book mail to date. The Moonlight Dreamers is about four girls who come together despite some differences and help each other with their individual life problems. One of the girls has the courage to start a group she calls The Moonlight Dreamers, which encourages the girls to be themselves and break away from being told how to look, what to think, and how to act. I knew this book was going to be a good one some how, so I got right into it. I managed to read this during exam time, and it was the perfect easy-going read from four different perspectives which allowed me to switch between mindsets of characters. Having now finished the book a few weeks ago, I sometimes wish I could read the book again from fresh or go back into the lives of the four characters. This is definitely a read that could be devoured in a day or two, and since I read a lot of young adult fiction I can say this is close to the best. This book is out July 7th from Walker Books.
Has anything I've mentioned caught your attention?
