Book Review: Music From The Dead by Bebe Faas Rice

Music From The Dead by Bebe Faas Rice is a young adult horror novel originally published in April 1997.  Marnie and her cousin Peter drive up to the mansion that Marnie's father rented for the summer ahead of her father.  When the cousins arrive at the mansion called Stonycraig and settle in, Marnie is nervous because she thought she saw a shadow in one of the windows.  Then, she starts hearing a woman crying late at night.  Are the stories about Stonycraig being haunted true? This is a book I originally read as a teenager, and I remember being impressed by the storyline and writing.  I recently decided to reread it as an adult to see if it was as good as I remembered.  I have to say it was phenomenal.  Well-written and unputdownable.   Even though there were parts that came back to me as I made my way through Music From The Dead , I still found it to be perfectly eerie and creepy.  There was even a little bit of romance but nothing inappropriate for a tween or teen.  The only com

Product Review: Absolute New York Velvet Lippie, Buttery Matte Lip Cream, Flamenco

velvet lippie absolute new york

Over the weekend, I went to my local Macy's Department Store and meandered over to the Backstage department. I found so many great deals, especially on makeup. One of the items I picked up was a product package by Absolute New York that included four different lip products.

The first lip product I tried out was the Velvet Lippie, Buttery Matte Lip Cream. The color is called Flamenco. What I liked about this product is how smooth and evenly I was able to apply it to my lips. The velvet lippie kept my lips moist and kept me from licking my lips as much as I usually do. As far as the color goes, it went well with my skin tones and brighten up my face.

Other great things about the Velvet Lippie by Absolute New York are that I was able to eat food without any of it coming off, and very little came off when I was drinking a can of Mountain Dew. With that being said, when I wiped it off my lips with a Kleenex, the Velvet Lippie came off without any trouble and didn't stain my lips.

There isn't anything about the Velvet Lippie that I can complain about. And, that's saying a lot as I don't typically wear lipstick because I hate how it usually comes off when I eat or drink something, and this product doesn't do any of that!

Five out of five stars is what I get Absolute New York Velvet Lippie, Buttery Matte Lip Cream in Flamenco because it is long lasting. I can't wait to try out the other products that were included with this product. I will definitely be buying this particular brand and product again.
