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 >.< 

 

QUESTION 1: PRIMER

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!)

 

QUESTION 2: CONCEALER 

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. 

 

QUESTION 3: FOUNDATION

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. 

 

QUESTION 4: EYESHADOW 

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. 

 

QUESTION 5: POWDER

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. 

 

QUESTION 6: EYELINER

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?) 

 

QUESTION 7: HIGHLIGHTER 

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. 

 

QUESTION 8: BLUSH 

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. 

 

QUESTION 9: MASCARA 

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. 

 

 

QUESTION 10: EYEBROWS

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. 

 

QUESTION 11: LIPSTICK 

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!

Above All Else by Dayton Idoni
Above All Else - Dayton Idoni

I have to say, over-explaining often got in the way, which is especially annoying in a short book. 
I was thinking of rounding the 3.5 stars down, but the originality (and the cover) won me over.

Community Service (Broken Mirrors #3) by Vaughn R. Demont
Community Service - Vaughn R. Demont
Some of my notes from Goodreads:
 
"Here we go again: info dumping and making things up on a fly (to add page count?) and reminiscing while everything is going to sh*ts. Why am still I reading this? @.O
Ah, right, challenge. And stupid notion that I must finish a book if I am past 75%."
 
 
"Omfg, stab me, stab! me! You don't frigging explain everything to your nemesis, you just KILL them! I swear my eyes are rolling all the way across *deh pond* right now!"
 
 
"This why I don't like present tense and cheap tricks horror books. You can't have a decent battle. The hero has to pause and reflect and both the hero the villain have to keep yapping at each other in the middle of life/death struggle. It's triple annoying! Maybe THAT is meant as horror? And damn if I am not tempted to dnf this bs at 80% :/"

Just Jack by Meredith Russell
Just Jack - Meredith Russell

I am OK with cheating...

BTW, ⚠️ WARNING ⚠️ CHEATING!

...and I am OK with drinking, but I am afraid that the insane amount of alcohol consumed in this book might leave me with a real non-book hangover tomorrow morning @.@ cause too much.

Seriously, tho, for the most part the characters talk and drink and talk and drink. I was hoping for more angst, a decent confrontation or two, problems at work, you know, the Whole Shabang, but it all turned rather too sweet and mellow for my taste.

Book Tour Review that I am Involved with.
The Mortal Falls (Undercover Elementals) (Volume 1) - Anna Durand

 

My Review

I really feel bad for saying this, but I just couldn't get into this book at all. And I found myself skipping a lot of the pages in the book just so I could get done with it as fast as I possibly could. I can't even remember much of what happened and I have no interest in finding the book to look for that information. 

Maybe later down the road I will try to do a re-read of the book and like it, I have had cases like that before. 

The main character in this book her name was Lindsey, and the main guy character was Nevan. I thought both characters were just alright to me, I didn't love them but I didn't hate them either. The book ending in a good place for the second book in the series, but I doubt I will continue on with it.

I gave the book one star due to the fact that the storyline sound pretty good. I really don't know what else to say for this review, so I guess I will end this review here.

Thanks for all parties involved that allowed me take part in the book tour for this book, when I requested to take part in it.
