Triple threat: the makings of a simple yet stunning eye look

This title is actually incorrect since this mascara was gifted to me from Heidi. She tends to 'do the most' at her Workshops and really goes the extra mile to make sure her patrons get their money's worth.

"REVIEW: Maybelline's the Falsies Volum' Express Flared. Medium formula i.e not too wet or dry. Slightly curved brush with densely packed bristles. 
Pros: inexpensive, provides definition, separation and a maybe a little length (my lashes aren't particularly short). 
Cons: strong scent when first opened (goes away with use)"

I would most definitely purchase this mascara especially since I've discovered that it's a dupe for a popular YSL one (at a quarter of that price? Fo sho!). This brush/formula combination gives the drama that I love. Three coats or more may cause clumping but not to the point where it looks like you only have four eyelashes. I especially love the dark rich pigmentation of this mascara. The only thing I still don't fancy - I used this up to yesterday - is the smell. If you're sensitive to smell, this may damn near give you a headache. You don't smell it as you wear it, but upon application it's a doozy.

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.

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

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.
