BEAUTY: Mr.Feel Good by Benefit

I have now used it only for a week. 
However, I really enjoyed the softeness of my skin.
Somehow, I feel this product is more of a summer essential rather than winter, as I am far from being a party animal I rarely sweat or have a grassy face in winter.
Just like I don't feel the need to powder my face when it is cold, the priming with a silicon base is not especially required.
This being said, The product at hand is doing its job rather well.
The only backdrop to Dr.Feelgood is that it is in a pot and that the applier is a sponge.
Except if you are very clean within its use, I fear it could get very dirty, very fast.
The packaging is nice and practical to look at and in theory but in practice, I am doubtful.

READ: The Mangle Street Murders by M.R.C. Kasasian

For those of you who have been around,you will remember of the article about the Peter Grant's series starting with The Rivers Of London. When I purchased this book that is what I had in mind.
Over the Holiday period, I read the Christmas pudding by Agatha Christie and took the time to watch quite too many period drams. Too be short, the stars were aligned for me to get this specific book.
A young woman, March Middleton, is left to the care of a taciturn man called Sidney Price.
from the very start, you understand this isn't your typical crime book and mostly, this is a funny book. A lot of irony and sarcasm pave the story mainly thanks to the witty young woman.

On a very different note, but which I really want to point out, the cover is especially nice. Pardon the materialistic view but let us not lie, many people purchased a book only in regard to the summary and image on the cover. It is the Alice side of us, loving images in books, which reveals itself when we get a new book.

BEAUTY: Nars Lip Pencils

My first Nars purchase will defenitly not be the last.
Got to love this frosted packaging though the plastic can make it feel cheap.
These three with the black line onto the colour marker on their ends are the sheer and shiny ones.
They do feel a little more nourishing than the mat ones but they do make you look more refreshed.
They are more my cup of tea.
I really enjoy the fact that they put in a cold and a warm toned lip shade.
The orange vinatgy look is the one I am more drowned to naturally but 
the berry shade is perfect for holidays and parties.
Though they have a mat finish I didn't feel like my lips were especially dry while wearing them.
Love them and heartly recommend them.

READ: Les Bienfaits Des Huiles Végétales

This book looks like a good idea.
And it is. But to be honest here, it is like writing a review about a dictionary. It is the least fun book you could come across but it is extremely useful if you want to make your own make up and skincare.
If you want to know everything about vegetable oils: this book is quite full of infromation and welldone. You will know which oil to use and to what end. I got it second hand but it isn't very expensive to start with. If you are looking for guidance in home made make up and food, go get this one.
