May Favourites - Foundation

Firstly, if you're not subscribed to Moden Makeup on YouTube you need to do so. Tuhnow! *taps foot* No, but seriously we're giving you information and laughs...that's a win win.
But I digress, shortly our May Favourites video will be posted and I just wanted to give you a bit more information on some of the products featured.
As the title states, this post is about the Iman Second to None Cream to Powder Foundation. I have it in the shade Earth 2.


I purchased this in Jamaica but it is available locally in Cave Shepherd and certain Harrison's locations. I'm ashamed to say, I had this product for quite a while before I tried it - #beautybloggerlife -, thus my shocking first impression video on keek. As I stated there, I am very impressed. The formula is easy to apply with your fingers or a sponge, it blends well and as the name says it dries down to a matte - not mannequin matte, a healthy looking one - powder finish. It should be mentioned that this product blends well over a silicone based primer or Milk of Magnesia; both of which add to the longevity of your look.

The product comes with a sponge in the breathable compartment

The sole issue (there was another but Heidi told me how to fix it here) I have had with this product is with the packaging. The compact is made out of plastic which isn't the most 'fall proof'. It fell off my table and the push closure broke *cue sad face*. Thankfully it's a cream so there won't be spillage but I just have to ensure that it's stored separate from other products when I travel. Yup, it's travel worthy. Especially since the coverage is so good that I don't need an additional concealer for my face. "Pack light, ohhhhhhh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah".

I love to apply this with my fingers, just to the problem areas of my face and then blend it out with a damp brush or sponge. For it's ease of use, great colour range and superb pigment this is definitely something I would repurchase.

Have you tried any Iman foundations? What's your shade?

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

Summer Standouts

It feels strange to talk about beauty products with all that's going on in the Caribbean. Our neighbours are going through some seriously trying times and I implore you to give whatever you can. 🙏

I didn't even realise that this was a running theme. Last year's was especially good since it featured some of my favourite combinations. Like last year, makeup seems to have taken a backseat this Summer.


There's only one item here that surprised me...but let me not get ahead of myself.
Y'all know exfoliators are a must in my skin and body care routine so the Bath & Body Works 'Lavender & Sandalwood' Clay Body Scrub and Coco Shea 'Coconut' Richly Nourishing Body Buff (thanks to the Mistress!) should come as no real shocker. Both smell amazing; again no shocker since regular readers know I'm a firm aromatherapy believer.
