My Rating   ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

A convenient palette that contains all you need to Contour, Strobe, and Highlight your complexion.

My Review:

Been using it for a while now. Bought it when it was new on the market. Its now priced at half of what I paid for it. Comes in 4 creamy shades which blend beautifully. 2 contour, 1 highlight & 1 illuminator. For me its highlighter & illuminator are just fine but I like its contour shades the most. Light or Deep contour shades so that one can switch according to need & mood. Beauty-blender is my best buddy for this creamy formula. 2nd best contour after Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Match Stix Trio

This product is available in 6 shades.

Reviewed – TOO FACED Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo

Color  Rosy Glow

Price  C$38.00

Size 0.35 oz/ 10.4 mL

My Rating   ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

A highlighting powder duo powered by “Photolite” technology.

My Review:

One of the best highlighting powder products in the market. Subtle yet catches the light, totally my thing. Although it’s a duo product & both shades are great but I prefer mixing them together & the results are amazing 🙂 . It applies quite smoothly & evenly, leaving you with a very natural look. If you are into extreme highlighting results then this may not be the product of choice for you.

This product is available in 2 shades.

Reviewed – Gone Daddy Gone by Cheryl Bradshaw

Title  Gone Daddy Gone

Author  Cheryl Bradshaw

Genre Mystery, Suspense, Thriller

My Rating   ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

I believe in something, a higher power perhaps, I’d like to believe in some form of afterlife, that when we die, we go on, existing in another way.

Cheryl Bradshaw ( Gone Daddy Gone , Chapter: 31)

Book Description:

A single moment is about to change Sloane Monroe’s life forever…

On an early winter morning, college student Shelby McCoy walks the quiet, snowy path back home. A tree branch snaps in the distance. Then another. A man is there with her, following close behind, whispering her name. She looks back, sees him gaining on her, and runs. Who is this man, and why is he carrying a gun?

My Review:

After starting this piece my hopes were really high, expectations that were never quite met by the end. Its starts out really well only to culminate in a somewhat sloppy ending. I felt the bar that was set in the beginning wasn’t maintained throughout. It was a good story full of twists & suspense but I wasn’t quite satisfied with the conclusion although the story was reasonably well paced.

Title  Brownie Points

Author  Jennifer Coburn

Genre Contemporary, Fiction

My Rating   ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

Stop comparing your insides to everyone else’s outsides, you are not the only person who’s ever struggled.

Jennifer Coburn ( Brownie Points , Chapter: 3)

Book Description:

When Lisa Taylor and her family move from San Francisco to the suburban paradise of Los Corderos, they know their family won’t fit in perfectly. They’re the only interracial family in the neighbourhood. Lisa is a snarky sculptor. And 13-year-old Logan is gay.

After Logan is repeatedly bullied at school, he finds his niche in an unusual place –his twin sister’s Girl Scout troop. When he tries to join, the organization refuses, so the boy sues for gender discrimination and sets off a firestorm of national media coverage. This only makes matters worse between the Logan and his father, a macho firefighter who is already struggling with his son’s sexual orientation.

Adding to the strife is Lisa’s increasing distaste for Junta Moms who wish each other “Namaste” while rigging school elections and stealing each other’s husbands.

Join the Taylors on their hilarious journey as they face the fight of their lives and,in the process, discover what it means to be a family.

My Review:

A good story about an interracial family, lighthearted but touching core issues such as race & sexual orientation. This book is all about family ties & sticking to them through thick & thin. This is the first title by Jennifer Coburn that I’ve has the pleasure to read & I must say I like her writing style along with a quirky sense of humor. The issues discussed in this book were important ones & I feel the writer has handled them artfully. Overall a good read, enjoyed it.

Reviewed – CIATÉ LONDON Dewy Stix – Luminous Highlighting

Color Glow – natural transparent

Price  C$31.00

Size  0.17 oz/ 5 g

My Rating   ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

A highlighting balm that adds a gorgeous wet dewy glow to any skin-tone.

My Review:

If you love a natural dewy look then this product is for you. True to its name this dewy stix really makes your skin glow. Makeup or no makeup this thing really does the job. I was very skeptical about this product at first. Appeared more akin to a lip balm on first impressions but I’m glad it proved me wrong. This is one of those products which you may always want to keep handy. Not at all sticky, light as air & in my opinion underrated.

This product is available in 3 shades.

Glow – natural transparent

Lustre – pink iridescent

Gleam – gold opal
