I Got Purple Problems

Upon preparing this recent post I realised a trend, I have purple problems. I don't know what it is about the colour but it keeps turning up in my makeup collection... A LOT. And before you ask, my favourite "colour" is black. Apparently black is a tone not a colour...so de graphic pros tell muh.

All the fun is on Instagram

Out of four Maybelline Vivids I only kept Brazen Berry

M.A.C. Heroine lip glass and liner are must haves for purple lovers

Upon a recent iMart rummage with my friend Katrina, she pointed out that I have loads of purple nail polishes as well. I scoffed at her...until I was preparing for the blog sale. The only one I could part with was the O.P.I mini in 'You're Such A Buhda-Pest'. siggghhhhhhhh


I've heard many women of colour on YouTube say that purple looks great on us. I have to agree; and they're so many shades that you just have to play around till you find the one that accentuates your skin tone best. From nail polish to eyeshadow there's a purple out there for you.

I love Essie 'Play Date'

'Stance' by Illamasqua is a lovely bright one

L'Oreal 'Addictive Plum' is all grown up looking 

'Amethyst' from Revlon is fully opaque in one coat

Essie 'DJ Play That Song' was all the rage for summer

Finally, purple really enhances brown eyes.


I know I'm not alone in this. Share your favourite purples in the comments.

Till next time...if you see me buying purple nail polish say, STEP AWAY FROM THE DISPLAY!

Uh beg yuh...

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. Visit Inyouvations in Sheraton for all your Bath & Body Works products. Continuing on the Bath & Body Works train, the…
