What's Making Me Happy - Beauty and Books!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

I wasn't going to make a post today, buuuut I bought some new stuff yesterday that I want to post about, and a book that I'm intrigued about just released, so here we are.

First of all, I'd just like to take a moment to celebrate the fact that my noisy neighbour from hell FINALLY moved out. This girl, honestly... I don't begrudge people an active sex life, but when the walls are as thin as they are in my place and her bedroom was right next to mine, it made for some unpleasant times. She also made a habit of coming home and being really loud at 2-3am, and in December I woke up to hear her screaming at a friend of hers. Just so much drama, omfg. Hopefully she's moving into a house or an apartment building with thicker walls, haha.

Secondly! I spent way too much money yesterday because I suddenly decided that I needed to expand my lipstick collection. Here's what I picked up:

This is the Covergirl Oh Sugar! Lip Balm in the colour Jelly. This looks super dark but it's actually more of a gloss, which is great because I'm pretty wary of having my lipstick look *too* obvious, if that makes sense. I'm just not sure if I can pull it off, though that's probably a confidence issue.

I almost actually *forgot* to buy this... It's the Rimmel Stay Matte powder in translucent. I have very determinedly oily skin (I'm going to be mad if oily skin doesn't actually age better, for the record) and this was recommended over on Reddit as a good translucent powder to help with that. Going to try it out today, wish me luck!

I also picked up the colour 'Iced Amethyst' in Revlon's Super Lustrous line, which is supposed to be very hydrating, and I got two other glosses, one by Covergirl and one by Maybelline (I'll grab the names later if I think of it. All of them are sort of berry/mauvey tones - I definitely have a comfort zone when it comes to lipstick!

And the last thing that's making me happy? This book that I just nabbed!

A Criminal Magic by Lee Kelly is out today, and it sounds really intriguing! It's 1926 and magic has been outlawed, but the black market is thriving. The book follows Joan, a young sorceror who ends up working for a gang when her house is repossessed, and Alex, a young trainee who's supposed to infiltrate the gang.

Sounds awesome and it was only $2.99 on Kindle so I grabbed it. :D

So that's how my week is starting off! Now someone take my credit card away for my own good.
