What I’ve Been Reading: July 2017

Hello lovelies,

A couple of months ago I started a new series on the blog called, What I’ve Been Reading. It’s a short recap of the books that I’ve loved and I wanted to share them with you in case you needed a new book. Some of these are old favourites that I haven’t read recently but I still wanted to share them with you. Click here to check out my list from last month in case you want to check it out.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Concealer- Medium*

Now this isn’t my favourite under eye concealer. Yes its full coverage, but I think the reason I don’t love it is because it’s too light for me. Not a criticism of the concealer itself, but just a explanation why I don’t love it.
