May Favourites - Lip Combo

The May Favourites videos are live! You know we get excited so it had to spilt into two.

Similar to the foundation post, I wanted to let you know about this awesome lip product combination.

Jolie Cosmetics lip gloss 'Stiletto' and Jordana Quickliner 'Bordeaux'

At Moden Makeup we're huge fans of Jolie Cosmetics; they're pigmented and affordable. Jolie's lipsticks and lipglosses contain more product than M.A.C lipsticks and lipglasses for half the price! I was so stunned by this lipgloss the first time I tried it that I had to keek - check out how it looks on my lips in that video -Shaniqua. Shaniqua is the owner of Jolie Cosmetics and she is very customer oriented. We wish her every success.


I purchased the Jordana lip liner from #1 Beauty Supply without thinking too much about the colour. There are so many raves about this product on YouTube that I just had to try one. The Quickliner formula is retractable so you don't have to worry about sharpening the product. It works perfectly with pinks, mauves/berries and even makes some "nudes" more wearable. I fill in my entire lip with Bordeaux and place Stiletto over it. You can even blot and reapply to create a stain. These products wear away evenly after eating/drinking and don't leave your lips looking patchy.

Swatched in natural light

Glamorous and affordable; this lip combo can't be beat. So hit up Jolie Lipsticks on Facebook; and look for the Jordana display in #1 Beauty Supply.

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*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

It's A Dupe!

posted on our Facebook page April 12, 2013 "DUPE ALERT: M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark vs Maybelline Fit Me! in 355 Coconut. Both look the same applied to the face and are the same texture when swatched. The Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is bigger by 1 gram but the Fit Me! is significantly cheap... *ahem* more "inexpensive". There is one shade darker in the M.A.C version but 355 is the darkest shade in the Maybelline. (I'm NC50). If you go through a lot of face powder it's worth a shot - LR"
Talk about a throwback!
I watched a dupe video on YouTube recently where this comparison was mentioned and it reminded me that I had the same thought a while ago. The finish on the skin is identical. Since this original post M.A.C has changed the packaging on their Mineralize line and Maybelline has rebranded/re categorised the Fit Me! range into: Dewy/Set + Smooth and Matte + Poreless.
M.A.C says: "A slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex that provid…
