MUA Pro- Base Conceal and Brighten Kit Review

The MUA Pro Base Conceal and Brighten Kit is available from Superdrug. It contains 3 blendable colours.

MUA say this about their product:

The new Pro-Base Conceal & Brighten Kit is a perfectly blendable camouflage purse size kit that conceals discolouration, imperfections and redness. It even tackles those dreaded under eye circles! The high pigment level means that only a small amount of product is needed to achieve perfect coverage. Oil free and long lasting it is suitable for all skin types even the most sensitive ones.

I am not a pro with concealer and honestly I do not very often wear it but I find this product extremely easy to use. It helps with any dark circles that gather under my eyes and if I have any unwanted blemishes. 
The product is creamy and blends onto the skin well using a brush or your fingers.

This product was around £3 so it is very affordable. I do not really have a comparison however i enjoyed using the product and will definitely continue to use this product myself.

Bound by Prophecy - Mellissa Wright

I am going to start off by saying i did not get very far into reading Bound by Prophecy - Mellissa Wright, Had I of managed to get further into the book i may have found that I liked it a lot more. 

That said this book was disappointing, I know you should never judge a book by its cover but I totally did
The cover is exciting and serious with lovely colours and beautiful models. 

The book starts and it feels like you are already halfway into a story, the characters seem to already know each other even though they only just met and I honestly found it difficult to get past the first few pages. I did however soldier on to find out what the book was about ( I imagine the main characters are some sort of paranormal being) but i never got past the fact that they were being chased by a bad guy who they were on first name terms with, this bad guy had not been discussed previously and I am still not sure what they were being chased for.

This makes me think that maybe I stumbled upon a series and had not begun at the beginning.  
I am definitely not saying do not read this book but it was not for me. I normally hate to quit on a book before the end ( I need to know endings) but after a few chapters I did not relate or believe in either main character and so I put it down.
