Give-away #4 [CLOSED]

We truly love all the support you've given us on our facebook page. We've endeavoured to bring you relevant information via the social media platforms we have available. For a more personalised service, don't hesitate to contact Heidi for one-on-one consultations via heidi@modenmakeup.com. She's a 'one stop shop': hair, nails and skin.

And now, on to the meat of the matter. In last month's give-away, I asked what your favourite blushes were and boy did I enjoy reading those comments. I certainly have loads of new recommendations to add to my wish list. This month's prize was planned months ago and I was so pleased to see that a few of you are already familiar with the awesome products that Sleek Cosmetics produces. I love their blushes in particular because they are very pigmented, reasonably priced (considering it's a UK based company and the import duties in Barbados are craycray) and they blend well.

...and you know I love to 'do the most' so I also threw in a bdellium tools 964S all purpose blush brush - say that three times fast - which is perfect for pigmented blushes due to its loosely packed bristles. You can apply the blush to your cheekbone with the flat side of the brush and then blend (up to the temple; instant facelift people!) with the tip.

The 964S is the first brush from the left
NOT the whole set hear, just the 964S...alright.

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…
