Book review: Jane by April Lindner

I know, I know,….it’s taking me more and more time to finish a book. Things have been crazy at work and I do admit that in my spare time I rather watch videos on youtube to get distracted :) so…. here I am!!! Well, Jane was a book I was eager to start since I got it. I love the cover with its pink title, so cute. The story is nice, light, definitely an easy read. I felt for the main character, Jane, a simple and ordinary girl any of us could identify with. I admired her: she’s strong, she has good values, she never compromises and all she ever wants is to be loved. In my opinion Ms. Lindner is a good writer, the pages flow easily and the reader is quickly captivated. There were some parts, though, that I didn’t quite like: I thought that the ‘falling in love’ part was too rushed, too surreal. Ok it’s fiction, but having a rockstar and a nanny madly fall in love with each other after only 3 days was a bit too much!!!!!!!!!! Besides that, the rest of the story was ok. As I said it was a light reading, so don’t expect much depth or introspection. I rate Jane 3/5 and will definitely read other books by this author. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPad

Review: Garnier Caffeine Roll-On

Just a quick post on my thoughts about the Garnièr Caffeine Roll-On. I bought this product about 2 months ago merely out of curiosity. I had seen a few videos of MakeupByTiffanyD in which she was raving about it so when I saw it on the shelves of my local beauty supply store I decided to give it a try. Keep in mind that I DO NOT suffer from dark circles under my eyes--- just a slight discoloration in my inner corner but nothing more than that. Since the day I bought it I’ve been using it almost everyday instead of my YSL Touch Eclat. The thing I love most about it is actually the roller…….I looooooove the cold sensation I get when it touches my skin!!!!!! Ideal when you’re putting makeup at 6:30am because it really wakes you up!!!!!!!!! The Garnièr Caffeine Roll-On evens the skin colour under my eyes and it brightens the area. It stays put through out the day (even without setting it with a powder) and I feel it also helps in preventing my under eyeliner from bleeding. If you do suffer from under eye dark circles I honestly do not recommend this product: it is not a concealer/corrector and it does not give strong coverage. But if, like me, you just want something to even out your under eye skin, brightening it up, then I think this is a product you must try out! Un breve post per condividere con voi la mia opinione sul Garnièr Caffeine Roll-On. Ho acquistato questo prodotto un paio di mesi fa solo ed esclusivamente per curiosità. Avevo visto alcuni video di MakeupByTiffanyD in cui lei era entusiasta di questo prodotto e quindi quando l’ho visto sugli scaffali della profumeria decisi che lo dovevo provare. Premessa importantissima: io non soffro di occhiaie o borse sotto gli occhi---solo un po’ di ombra nell’angolo interno degli occhi, ma nulla di più. Insomma, dal giorno in cui l’ho comprato, ho usato il Garnièr Caffeine Roll-On praticamente tutte le mattine, prima del fondotinta, al posto del YSL Touch Eclat. La cosa che più ADORO è proprio il roller: è FREDDISSIMO!!!!!!!!!!! Ideale se come me ti trucchi alle 6:30 del mattino ed hai bisogno di una bella svegliata!!!!!!!!!!! Mi piace come uniforma il colore della pelle conferendo luminosità. Dura tutto il giorno (anche senza fissarlo con una cipria) e, non so come, evita all’eyeliner inferiore di sbafare. Se, invece, soffri di borse ed occhiaie non credo questo prodotto sia l’ideale, anzi lo sconsiglio proprio. Il Garnièr Caffeine Roll-On non è un correttore e quindi non ha grande coprenza. Per contro se, come me, hai solo bisogno di un prodotto che uniforma e conferisce luminosità sotto gli occhi allora ti consiglio di dargli una chance! - Posted using BlogPress from my iPad
