Makeup Book Tag

Hey all! Today I decided to do something a bit different and do a booktag! I will be doing the Makeup Book Tag! I'm going to be mixing up the questions a bit in the order in which I use my products. 



First off my bare face without any makeup >.< 



For Primer I use Wet n Wild's Face Primer. I don't know a lot about primer so I just buy what's cheap. But this product has given me nothing to complain about so I'm sticking to it. I dab it onto my skin and rub it in with my fingers. 

Pick a book that's left a lasting impression 

For me this would have to be the entire Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare. These books mean so much to me and I don't think I'd be the reader/writer I am today without these books (psst! check out my Shadowhunters fanfiction here!)



For Concealer I use CoverGirl's Smoothing Concealer in the color Fair. I love this concealer because I feel like it blends well with my foundation. I swipe it under my eyes and in areas of my skin that are especially broken out. I then dab it in with my fingers. 

Pick a character you wish you could get rid of 

For this question I'm going to have to go with the first character I think I've ever hated in any book: Jason Grace. Yeah, he's one of the main heroes of the Heores of Olympus but I really cannot stand the guy. To me he's annoying and tries to act better than Percy...which he's not. Not by a long shot. 



For Foundation I either use CoverGirl's Clean Matte Liquid Foundation or CoverGirl's Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation both in the color Classic Ivory. I'm out of the 3-in-1 so today I used the Clean Matte. I love CoverGirl's foundation because its relatively cheap and stays on for most of the day. I use a blending sponge to dab it onto my skin. 

Pick your favorite first book in a series 

As much as I have problems with the later books in this series, Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas is still my favorite first book in a series. This book is such a great introduction to the series and I love Celeana, Chaol and Dorian so much. I even tabbed the hell out of my copy so I can quickly jump to the points I loved so much. 



For Eyeshadow I have a lot of pallets but today I used CoverGirl's (are you really surprised anymore?) Eye Enhancers shadow in Tapestry Taupe. I really enjoy this eyeshadow because its a pretty brown/gray color. It goes on smooth and stays on all day. I wish my eyeshadow brush and brush it onto my eyes, especially into my crease. 

Pick a book that has your favorite colors on the cover 

I have to pick this gorgeous cover of Pride and Prejudice. Blue is my favorite cover and this is just so pretty. I own this copy and it has its own place of honor on my shelf. 



For Power (when I use it) I use CoverGirl's Clean Matte Powder in the color Classic Ivory. I feel like this powder gives me that extra clean coverage over my foundation. 

Pick your favorite last book in a series 

I don't think I will never not pick City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare for this question. Other final books have came close but COHF has reigned supreme in this category for me. It was honestly just the perfect ending to the Mortal Instruments. 



For Eyeliner I have a few different sticks of varying colors but today I used Smashbox's Always On Gel Liner in the color Fishnet. I haven't used this liner much but I like how smoothly applies and how it doesn't smudge. 

Pick and dark and mysterious book

For this one I'd have to pick With Malice by Eileen Cook. This book is sure a mysterious read, I didn't know what was happening until the end of it (and do I even know now that I've finished?) 



For Highlighter I use essence's contour power. I don't actually contour, I only use the highlighter. I don't know much about highlighter but I feel like this one isn't too light or dark and gives me that shine that I like. I apply this with a brush to my cheekbones. 

Pick a book that brightened your day

For this one I have to choose the Prophecy of Shadows (Elementals #1) by Michelle Madow. This was the first book I read after a really long reading hiatus and really put me into a much better mood afterwards. It also got me back into reading. 



For Blush I use a this coral-colored blush in a big combo pallet I got from Ulta Beauty. I like this blush because I feel like its not too pigmented and gives me that right level of blush. I apply this with a brush below my cheekbones. 

Pick a book with come cringe-worthy romance

I have to choose the romance in Betrayed (House of Night #2) because I cannot stand the love crap in that. I'm only continuing on in the series because I like the idea of the books but I cannot deal with the romance. 



I have four different mascara I rotate between depending on the day but today I used essence's I <3 Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara. I really like this mascara because it makes my lashes look so long and thick. For the most part, its also not super clumpy and stays on all day. 

Choose a loooooong book 

I've been waiting to mention this book...A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I think this book is my favorite of all time. It just gave me all the feels and I literally loved how far the story went from the beginning of the novel to the end. Please, fangirl with me about it, please. 




For Eyebrows I use the lighter brown shade in the same pallet my blush in in. I don't normally do my eyebrows but when I do I use this shade. Since I've only used this a handful of times I'm not sure how much it compares to other shades. I use a brush to apply this and the brush out my eyebrows with an eyebrow brush. 

Pick a book you think everyone should read 

No Ordinary Star by M.C. Frank. This book is honestly so epic and amazing, I love it so much and I think anybody who picks it up will too. It's a futuristic science fiction novel that honestly such a fast-paced read. Everyone should pick up this book...now. 



For Lipstick I have a lot of different ones but I've really been enjoying lately Maybelline's Color Sensational Lipstick in the color Pink Sand.  It isn't too pigmented and doesn't smudge which is really important. Also, I feel like it stays on for a while and reapply it is hassle-free. 

Pick your favorite book kiss

I've mentioned Shadowhunters so many times in this tag already but to this day my favorite kiss is the Midnight Flower kiss in City of Bones. That kiss...I just love it so much. I won't say who it is because of spoilers but that ship is just my otp and the kiss is perfect. 


Aaaaaaand finished! 


Thanks for checking out this tag today and feel free to do this tag if you want to! Have a wonderful day and happy reading!

WoW what a book.
A Court of Mist and Fury - Sarah J. Maas

This weekend I finished both this book and the last one in the series, and what a hell of a ride it was. Will start with the review of this one, and then I will make another post on the last back.

In the first book I wasn't sure why readers didn't like Tamlim, because at first I thought they were so cute together. But after I finished reading it at looked back on their relationship, there were signs that things were going to happen to their relationship and that Tamlin was going to be the person to cause the conflict. 

Now Rhys I knew from his and Feyre's first meet that something was going to take place between those two at a certain point. I always liked Rhys from the beginning, sure his was a really ass around her most of the time but those two when they were around one another still has amazing chemistry between them.

Now let's talk about this book, can I say I really hated Tamlin in this book, what he did to Feyre was just so freaking wrong and I am sorry but what he did to her just made me wish I could go into the book and knock some sense into him. I just don't understand why he thought what he did wasn't a bad thing to do to her or anyone for the matter. And when she was freed from that awful situation, I just wanted to give Rhys a really big hug, I would say kids but Feyre would kick my ass. 

You could see the big difference between Tamlin's court and Rhys's court in the way they treat there people. I have to also mention that I love how Rhys got Feyre to start to read, oh boy those two just cracked me up. 

I loved that Rhys wasn't trying to hold Feyre back, and how he didn't treat her like glass, and that she would break.. Tamlin I know he had an awful life but so did Rhys.

Feyre in the first book I wasn't sure about, I didn't know if I liked her or not. But boy did she kick some ass in this book. When she found out the secret Rhys was keeping from her I understand kind of why she was upset. But come on, would she have been able too handle that information at the time? No of course not, she was in love or though she was in love with Tamlin. I love that scene where they see one another after she left, and the whole scene between Feyre and Rhys.

The ending wow was that cray, cray, and what we thought happened and what was revealed by that certain individual was just freaking awesome!!!!! And what happened to Feyre's sisters was also crazy. Just loved this book so much.

A Court of Thrones and Roses Series Spoiler Free Review
A Court of Wings and Ruin - Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Mist and Fury - Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Thorns and Roses - Sarah J. Maas

Months ago, I embarked on a journey to finally read the ACOTAR series. Earlier this week I finally finished that adventure and let me tell you: I was not disappointed. 


I began reading ACOTAR because everybody on the internet was obsessed with them, everyone was obsessed with Rhysand. I held out, however, for a very long time. Why? Because I was very disappointed with the Throne of Glass series that I DNFed after a 100 pages of Empire of Storms. That being said, I did not want to get so invested into a Sarah J Maas series only to have my heart crushed by characters being ruined, plot events I did not agree with, and the like (I apologize if you like TOG, this is my personal opinion). But, reading ACOTAR was stepping into a whole other world. 


I'll say it now, I believe that ACOTAR is my favorite series, a seat that has been held by the Mortal Instruments for over five years. At the very least, they are tied. 


Staring with the first book, A Court of Thornes and Roses, I had some prejudices going into it. If you have a social media account and follow anything Sarah J Maas related I'm sure you've seen Rhysand. So, I believed that Rhysand would make an appearance in the first chapter or so. But no, reading the summary its clear to see that this is a story between Tamlin and Feyre. 


That being said, I never truly hopped onto the Tamlin and Feyre train. I was always looking at Tamlin, wondering what he would do to make people not talk about him. By the end of the novel, I knew. I also knew why everybody was talking about Rhysand. And why yes, I did guess about a couple things in the novel and I'm still pretty proud of myself because I never see anything coming, ever. 


The plot? It was epic and amazing. I loved the aspects of Beauty and the Beast thrown into fey myths. It was familiar yet mysterious and exciting at every turn.


As a series starter? For me, this book was not as strong as other first in a series I have read. That being the case, I only gave this book a four star review. Yes, I compared it to Throne of Glass, probably one of my favorite firsts in a series of all time (right behind City of Bones, of course). ACOTAR just didn't start off the series in the same way, not that it was bad. It was wonderful. It was a necessary start to the series.  


I would like to say something...the next book, A Court of Mist and Fury, may possibly be one of my favorite books of all time, ever. With that, let's carry on. 


There's not a lot I can say about this book without giving away spoilers from the first novel. Just the fact that its based upon Hades and Persephone, which is common knowledge. 


I can say, however, that I loved everything about this book. I loved the plot, I loved the characters, I loved the ships, I loved the Night Court. I think most of the fandom will agree when me when I say that I also hate the one person most people hate. I hate them with a passion. 


The ending on this novel tore my heart into pieces. It was so beautiful and epic, the one statement that was said, I nearly cried. And then SJM goes crushing my heart. 


The final book, the epic conclusion to the Feyre-centered novels was as epic as I expected. I rated this book five stars. Why didn't I love this novel as much as its predecessor? I'm not entirely sure. I got all the feels from this novel but something about ACOMAF just made me love it so much more, not that ACOWAR wasn't amazing, because it was. 


The events at the end of the second book play out in the third and I was so frustrated for the first part of it. I just kept reading and flipping the pages because I had to know what would happen next. I needed that certain thing to happen. Probably as much two characters needed each other. 


As I got further into the novel I kept wondering what would happen next, kept being surprised, kept being impressed, kept being attacked by feels. And then, I stopped and stared at page 600 of the book and wondered how everything would be tied up in 99 pages. 


Let's just say that SJM created a masterpiece. It was truly wonderful and I couldn't expect a better end to the main series of books. 


Have you read ACOTAR? Keep watch for my next review which will contain spoilers of the series!
