Review: Gone Girl


Gone Girl
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

My rating: 2 of 5 stars



I was really excited to read this book because I've heard so many positive reviews about it but, I didn't enjoy this book very much.It took me over 3 months to read because I just couldn't get into it. It eventually became a chore to read. The mystery of the book is actually very interesting, but the story moved so slowly to where I just grew bored with it. It got a little more interesting around page 400 or so. But i just don't feel that it should take 400 pages to finally start hitting the interesting parts. Also, the ending was not satisfying. I still plan on watching the movie. Like I said earlier, the mystery is actually very cool. I think I might enjoy it better in movie form because It seems like the story will move along much quicker than the book.

Maybelline Master Conceal Review!!

Hello everyone!
Recently, Maybelline has come out with a ton of new products including this Master Conceal Camouflaging Concealer. I haven't heard too much about this product yet, but everything that I've heard, so far, has been positive. Therefore, I decided to pick this concealer up and try it out. 
Ive been using this concealer for a couple of weeks now and its awesome. I dont have a single bad thing to say about it, so I'm going to keep this review short and sweet by using some bullet points. 
  • It is is medium-full coverage and is buildable without looking cakey.
  • The packaging is easy to use and sanitary. It is just a squeezy tube.
  • The price is great. Its around $7.99.
  • There is not many shades in the range, but the fair shade is perfect for me.
  • It lasts all day.
  • It doesn't crease under my eyes.
  • A little goes a LONG way. I use a tiny dot. (photo example below) 
  • I wear it under my Laura Mercier mineral powder foundation and it looks flawless!

I used this much and it was still a tad too much!



Before and After!
In the before photo you can see some blemishes & dark circles. In the after photo you can see how amazingly this concealer covered those areas.

Final look!
This is how my foundation looks after applying the Maybelline concealer, Laura Mercier mineral foundation and some bronzing powder.  (I was only going to the grocery store, so I didnt bother with eye makeup lol)
