My Wish List

I know what you're gonna say; I don't need any more makeup. I know, I know. Now if only that stopped me from wanting it.

As I mentioned in this post, I do not support hoarding. So much so that the blog sale list is updated very often with things I wish would find a better home. In addition to that, I regularly give products to my close girlfriends that I figure they would appreciate more than me. Make way for new stuff I say :D
My wish list consists of things I have lusted after for months. It keeps me on the hunt for dupes whilst encouraging me to save towards someday purchasing these items.

My birthday is in 2 weeks so hook a Sistuh up! I kid I kid.

1. Lorac Pro Palette
How long have I craved thee?
You've heard me say before that I'm not all that into eyeshadow but this palette filled with matte and shimmery shadows has changed my mind.

2. Hourglass Immaculate Foundation
This is the first liquid foundation I've heard of that has a host of skin benefits. Apparently it works wonders for people with oily skin.

3. Guerlain Terracotta Four Seasons Bronzer
Few brands say lllllluuuuuuussssssshhhhhhh Guerlain. Seeing pictures of this (the top left one specifically) does mek my eyes water.

6. Chanel Chance
I've come to realise that I like those "clean" scents.



Honourable mentions:

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Powder Foundation (and Airbuki Foundation Brush)
All reviews indicate that this powder foundation gives a natural finish while offering great coverage.
It's got my attention.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks
I've already ordered three of these but somehow I don't think that will be the end.

This list couldn't be mine unless I snuck in some shoes...

Tod's Gommino Driving Shoe

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.

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…
