The Liebster Award || Tag

I got tagged by the amazing Bookish Beauty who has an incredible blog that combines books and beauty (what more could you want?!) This tag is basically a way for bloggers to share more about themselves, and about their favourite blogs!

The rules are; answer the questions given to you, make up some more and tag 11 bloggers to answer them!

(I'm also very late at replying to this.)

1) What's your favourite book? 

This question for me, is like picking a favourite child. It's so hard. My top books have to be: Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie, A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven and Blackheath by Gabriella Lepore. 

2) What beauty product gives you the most joy?

Easily the Galaxy Chic eyeshadow palette from Bh Cosmetics. It's not something I'd use everyday, but it's just so beautiful to look at. It makes me so genuinely happy.  

3) Favourite book series? 

Again, this is a hard one. 

I'm going to have to say Harry Potter, and I know that is usually everyone's answer, but there's a reason for that, I grew up with Harry, I'm very attached to that world. 

4) Holy grail makeup item? 

The Bourjois 1-2-3 foundation. I have never used a foundation that makes my skin feel so soft, it doesn't make me shiny, it's a good coverage. Ultimately, I kind of feel like I can't live without this foundation sometimes, even though I do use Rimmel Lasting Finish at times. It tends to leave my skin a bit dewey though if I'm having a bad skin day. 

Another would have the be the Collection Pressed Powder. People have said it's too chalky for them, but for me it works beautifully.

5) What was the last book you just could not finish? 

In the past two years, I have never not finished a book. Which I'm really proud of. However, a book that I did give up on and then restarted it was Dracula by Bram Stoker. It's such a bad book! I hated basically all of it except the first 20% maybe. 

6) What is the most recent beauty product you bought that disappointed you? 

All of my recent beauty purchases have actually be really good so far! I'm a fan of lower end beauty products though, so there have been many over the years. I'm going to say the Deluxe Lipsticks from Collection. I tried three shades of these lipsticks and none of them seemed to stay, I don't even own them any more for a photo, but they were just more gloss sticks than lipsticks and they had quite poor pigmentation. 

7) What book do I think everybody should read? 

Either How to Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee or Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie

8) Best Beauty Discovery of this year? 

I discovered this product towards the end of last year, much to my sadness because I would have looked so on fleek if I had discovered it before hand, but the Collection Felt Tip Liner. I'm an eyeliner girl. It's my favourite part of my makeup, my issue is my hands are too shaky to do detailed and precise wings with normal liquid eyeliners, but this one dries well, lasts long and also has a long nib so it's more like using a pen. 

For £3 (I think) it's an absolute lifesaver! I go through so much eyeliner!

9) What's your favourite reading genre? 

YA Contemporary will always be my guilty pleasure. I'm almost embarrassed to admit how much I enjoy them! I also have a soft spot for Teen Horror!

10) What's the best lipstick you own, shade and brand? 

I love purple lipsticks. 

My three favourites would have to be Wild Berry by MUA, Keeps the World Spinning by Makeup Revolution and Keep Lying For You by Makeup Revolution. 

11) Most anticipated read in 2016?

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare!!!! Hands down, no competition! (And I've already read it so :( 

My 11 Questions are;

  1. How many physical books do you own? 
  2. Where is your favourite place to read? 
  3. If you could meet any character from a book and befriend them, who would it be and why?
  4. If you were in the Hunger Games, what district do you think you'd come from? (Assuming you've read/seen the Hunger Games.)
  5. Do you have any nick-nacks on your bookshelves? If so, what? 
  6. Worst book you've ever read?
  7. Best book you've ever read?
  8. Most anticipated releases of this year?
  9. If you could visit any fictional world, what one would you go too? 
  10. What is your favourite film adaption? 
  11. Where do you buy most of your books?
Because I have quite a small, but lovely following, I'd love to see what you'd all answer to these questions! Tag me and let me see your answers!
