Zoeva // Rose Golden Palette // £18

I got this palette for Christmas and AHHHHHH it’s so beautiful. I thought I wouldn’t be too fussed with it but honestly, it’s pretty much the only palette I’ve been using recently. My favourite shade is Copper is King and I would never have seen myself wearing such a bold shade before but oh my, I absolutely adore it. I will definitely be look at buying some more Zoeva palettes.

SEVENTEEN // Stay Time Foundation // £6.49

I seen so many people talking about how this foundation is a great dupe for MAC Pro Longwear and I was rather sceptical. Oh my goodness. This is going to be my go to foundation from now on. This product is high coverage and it is absolutely excellent. It stays on ALL day and despite my oily skin, it actually stays in place. The only thing I would say is the range of shades isn’t very good, with hardly any. I usually wear the lightest shade with most brands however, I had to go for the fourth lightest! Which means that if you have very pale skin then this foundation is definitely worth a try!

Illamasqua //  Lipstick // Shard // £19.50

I managed to get these lipsticks at an extremely reduced price in the Illamasqua sale! I bought two different shade however, I have completely abandoned one to use this shade shard, the shade on the left. To be honest, I thought the shade was going to be a lot darker purple but when it goes on, it is rather bright. I still absolutely love it though! You do need to continuously apply it but apart from that, I am in love.

Line of Duty

On Sunday night I finished season two of Line of Duty. My oh my. If you love a crime drama then you definitely need to give this a watch. Season one was absolutely fantastic as was season two, although it was slightly more complicated. It was given an 8.4/10 on IMDb and I completely understand why! Absolutely excellent!

Following one multi-stranded investigation over five hours, Line of Duty sees Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott transferred to AC-12, an anti-corruption unit, after a mistaken shooting during a counter-terrorist operation. Alongside Detective Constable Kate Fleming , they are assigned to lead an investigation into the alleged corruption by a popular and successful officer, Detective Chief Inspector Tony Gates. While Gates cleverly manipulates his unit’s figures, DS Arnott questions whether Gates is being made a scapegoat for a culture of institutionalized spin, or is guilty of darker corruption.

We Were on a Break // Lindsey Kelk

This book was absolutely fantastic. I absolutely love a chic lit and oh boy, this one really didn’t disappoint. I got all the feels with this book and I think Liv is one of my favourite female characters ever. I don’t want to give much away because you must read this! So I’ll leave you with the blurb:

Is it a break? Or is it a blip?

‘You’ve just had a holiday,’ I pointed out, trying not to yawn. ‘Wasn’t that enough of a break?’
‘I don’t mean that kind of break.’

There’s nothing worse than the last day of holiday. Oh wait, there is. When what should have been a proposal turns into a break, Liv and Adam find themselves on opposite sides of the life they had mapped out.

Friends and family all think they’re crazy; Liv throws herself into work – animals are so much simpler than humans – and Adam tries to get himself out of the hole he’s dug.

But as the short break becomes a chasm, can they find a way back to each other? Most importantly, do they want to?

 

What were you loving this month? I’d love to hear!

Much love,
