NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick Alien tested

For whatever weird reason I suit really well with dark lipsticks, I don’t know why. So therefor I’ve always wanted to try out a black lipstick, because it can’t get any darker than that now can it?
Trouble was finding one that wasn’t super expensive in case it wouldn’t suit me. The most drawbacks for black lipsticks I have encounter is that it smears, over everything (especially on ones teeth). As someone with a slight overbite it’s way more easy for lipstick to end up on my front teeth than someone with regular bite this would be super embarrassing.

So one lucky day I saw that NYX had a new black lipstick in their Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick line. As a huge fan of their Suede line (Soft Spoken is my go to, the only ‘nude’ that fits me) I knew that this was the lipstick for me. Unfortunately back then I couldn’t get my hand son it yet, since no one that had it in stock shipped to Sweden ‘-_-
So about a month back, there it was in my local make-up store.

Like wow! Turns out I can wear black lipstick without looking like a goth (succes!). Alien, as the color is called, isn’t just a nice lipstick to wear, it also doesn’t smear! Like once it’s on your lipstick, it holds on for dear life. Like I have eaten and drinken, but the color stays put and their isn’t this lighter spot in the middle of the mouth that usual appears after you put something in your mouth. It doesn’t smear on my teeth, around my mouth or on my drinking glass, the only affect is some black flakes and that’s it.

So if you want not only a budget friendly black lipstick, but also one that stays put on your lips I defentifly recomends this one :3

Fooood!

This might be a surprise to some, but I actually loves food. I’m just hardly ever hungry and because of that I don’t eat very often or appears into food.
Anyway, yesterday I went to a International Food Market and everything just looked so good! And it smelled super delicious too.
Crêpes, Paella, French stews, French pastries, and Dutch cheeses. Well among others.
In the end I chosed the Crocodile burger from the Australian stand, which was super delicious, and British fudge. Yummy.

Tweets not for me

I’m just terrible at tweeting, there’s noway it can get across the thing I want to tell every one in just 140 characters.

I’m excellent at really expressing things with words and can stretch something that other people writes in two sentences to almost a whole page. I know a lot of words and how to use them to fill out a text. Brilliant for essays, horrible for twitter.

It just ain’t in my nature to write short, snappy texts. This makes my tweets come across as pretty ‘correct’ and ‘boring’. Which leads to me scrolling through twitter crying over the fact that I can’t write good tweets.
But in the end in my case it’s better this way, because it would be awful to write a blog when you only can write in 140 characters or less.
Well at least that’s what I tell myself to feel better.

Review: Get Even by Gretchen McNeil

SDC10515

Gretchen McNeil is on the fast track to become on of my favorite authors. First it was the stunning Ten and it’s Get Even. Both book are so incredible well written, and exciting, and both managed to hold me on the edge right onto the last page.

Get Even has this Pretty Little Liars feeling to it, well at least it had in the beginning. Four girls which doesn’t really have things in common, expect for one thing. In these girls case it’s the quest to get revenge on the bullies in the school who attack the less fortunate ones. But the bullied has a friend in the secret club Don’t Get Mad. The point of the club is to take revenge in the name of the people who can’t do it themselves. Also it’s a way to say F you the horrible principles and his bullies who rules the school in terror.

I liked the character and the plot, but there’s one really irritating thing. When I finished I didn’t get to know who was out to sabotage DGM. Since Ten had been a stand alone book I just thought that Get Even was that to. But nope, it’s the first book in a duology. *Sigh*. I’m happy there will be one more book with this gang, but I just really wanted to know who the murder was right now!
