Top 5 Wednesday: Books You Wish Had Sequels!

Hello lovelies,

It's that time for Top 5 Wednesday, as created by the awesome GingerReadsLainey and now moderated by the lovely ThoughtsonTomes over on Goodreads!

This weeks topic is...Books You Wish Had Sequels! Yes, now this topic is my jam! If I love a book I pretty much want more 99% of the time so this may be difficult to narrow down...


Fair warning, I've mentioned at least two of these a bajillion times. I think there should just be an "I love Lock In and Vicious" disclaimer at the bottom of all my posts!

[RETRO POST RETURNS] Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover Foundation Review

Hello lovelies,

I'm sure everyone is sick of seeing the reviews for this product however I really haven't see many from people with the same skin issues as me and/or with before and after pictures. Also there is a few things I've experienced that I have not noticed others mentioning. Also I really wanted to review this so I'm going to!

I've never particularly had bad skin. However, recently I have been suffering with a chronic illness and due to stress or medication my skin has just turned evil on me! I've always had redness and always preferred fuller coverage foundations but recently I have experienced scaring and awful red sore spots that last for weeks at a time. Definitely not acne, and my skin is not "bumpy" but I need to coverage.

Originally after deciding to change my foundation, I switched to Estee Lauder Double Wear in 1C1 Shell (£21.50). A great shade for me. (on a side note I had a terrible experience with the person who served me in my home town and swore I wouldn't be back). This is a lovely creamy formula and I really hope I can switch back to it soon, however I did not enjoy the heavy (easy to break) glass bottle it came in with no pump. It's very easy to pour out too much product and I also find it quite un-hygienic. Although I think many people may think the container makes it more expensive looking or feeling.
