Would I Repurchase? Milani Baked Blush

If you're familiar with our facebook page you already know the answer to this...of course! We've let you know about this product from when I first discovered it in Carlton & A1 supermarket down to every time we see the shelves restocked in Diamond Girl, Caribbean Queen, #1 Beauty Supply...allodem.

Milani is one 'low end' brand that had has consistently improved its products and marketing. They are raved about on YouTube now and for good reason. These blushes heralded the beginning of my love interest with Milani; I'm always looking to see what new products will be released.

Carlton's price of $20.95 was too steep for me but when Diamond Girl brought theirs for $14.99, I was allllllll ova dat!

At the time I posted the last picture, 'Red Vino' was my favourite (and coincidentally the hardest one to find). 'Coralina' was my least favourite due to the silver shimmer - it's still a beautiful blush mind you. The more I played with these products the more I grew to appreciate them. They give the face that extra umph! that it needs after foundation takes all the dimension away. Due to their sheen, highlighter is optional. That's perfect for those times when you are in a hurry; you get the benefits of looking like you did a lot without the hassle of using a gazillion products.

"DUPE ALERT: Didn't get your hands on M.A.C's Stratus mineralized blush (limited edition)? Fear not! Milani's baked blush in 07 Fantastico Mauve gives you the same look for half the price. (.3 grams more product too)"

At this point, I was head over heels! I already knew they were great but then to discover first hand that they were dupes for M.A.C Mineralized blushes? *swoon*

What more can I say? Oh, I'm still lusting after Luminoso....but I have more than enough blushes. Right?

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.

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.
