Book Review: One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke

One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke opens with six friends arriving in Greece to celebrate an upcoming wedding. Each one of the women have a secret, and one of them is determined to make sure the wedding doesn't happen. And, one of them ends up dead. Thank you to NetGalley, Penguin Group Putnam, and G.P. Putnam's Sons for a digital Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke. I was ecstatic to be selected to read this book in exchange for my honest review. Wow! I'm at a loss of what to say about One of the Girls because it was that fantastic. Fun. Engrossing. Well Written. Unputdownable. These are just a few words I'd use to describe this novel.  There were red herrings galore. With that being said, I had my suspicions that the "killer" was one of two people, and one of them ended up being the killer, so I was happy with my deduction. On the other hand, I couldn't figure out who the victim was going to be, and I was completely surprised b

Product Review: Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer by Benefit Cosmetics of San Francisco

When contacted me to let me know I was receiving a voxbox with a product in it for me to review, I was ecstatic. I was even happier when I realized it was an under eye concealer because I always have dark circles due to extremely bad allergies. I'm just about allergic to everything outside!

Since I work from home, I don't always wear makeup like I use to when I had to go into an office, so one of the first chances I had to test out the Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer by Benefit Cosmetics of San Francisco was when I went to see the Broadway show Cats when it was in Atlanta. It was the perfect time to try it out because I had bronchitis, and the circles under my eyes were exceptionally dark.

The Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer went on smoothly and was cakeless as promised by Benefit Cosmetics of San Francisco. It blended well into my foundation and the concealer actually matched my skin tones extremely well. Most makeup tends to be too dark for me, even the lightest of the lightest because I'm so pale. It doesn't help me any that I don't sun myself . . . I don't tan; I burn, and I don't want all that sun damage to my skin! (And, I know way too many people who now have skin that looks like leather from years of laying out in the sun or in tanning beds, and I don't want my skin to look like that.)

Because my circles are so dark, I do have trouble finding concealer that actually hides them. Benefit Cosmetics of San Francisco's Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer is the best that I've tried so far, so I'll likely buy this product when I run out of the concealer.

Another thing I liked about this product is that the packaging is minimal, so I like that they seem to be environmentally conscientious. And, the actually container is super cute . . . it is made to look like a pencil with an eraser. It appears that their target audience is likely a much younger one than me, but don't let that stop you from buying the concealer.

All in all, I was very happy with the end result and would give Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer by Benefit Cosmetics of San Francisco 4.5 stars out of 5 stars. I received this product for free from for my honest review.
