A Few Of My Favourite Things

T'is the Season!

We hope you're enjoying this special time of year. If anyone has any good black cake at their house just let me know when to swing by.

Our Christmas give-away will be hosted on our Facebook page, you can see the rules Heidi posted on her Instagram account yesterday. We wanted you to have a chance to try some of the products we've been raving about all year. Here are my picks:

Makeup Favourites - www.modenmakeup.com 
NYX Black Label lipstick 'Sand', e.l.f Powder Brush, Milani Baked Blush 'Red Vino'. M.A.C Prep+Prime Highlighter 'Peach Lustre', NYX retractable eye liner 'Cashmere' (waterproof) and Orly Nail Lacquer Thinner

Orly Nail Lacquer Thinner - www.modenmakeup.com

You've seen how much nail polish I couldn't resist this year; it's always handy to have a thinner and this nozzle opening makes it very easy to dispense the product.

NYX Black Label lipstick 'Sand' - www.modenmakeup.com

Sand is still my favourite nude lipstick.

e.l.f Powder Brush - www.modenmakeup.com

For sure you remember me raving about this brush in our YouTube videos. It blends foundation so nicely and the price is unbeatable.

Milani Baked Blush 'Red Vino' - www.modenmakeup.com

If I gotta tell you how awesome these blushes are one more time...

M.A.C Prep+Prime Highlighter 'Peach Lustre' - www.modenmakeup.com

This highlighter came late to party but certainly left an impact especially after another colour correcting product let me down.

NYX retractable eye liner 'Cashmere' (waterproof) - www.modenmakeup.com

If you've never tried NYX retractable lip or eye liners I urge you to get at least one. I love Cashmere because it brightens the eyes and doesn't transfer onto my contacts.

Good luck!

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.

With Key Ingredients:

Purified Lactic Acid: One of the most hydrating Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Lactic Acid exfoliates the surface layers of t…

It's A Dupe!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.

Can you tell which is which? No? Well, neither can I.
From the MUFE site -  "Details: STEP1 Skin Equalizer triples the power of your foundation: easier application, optimized makeup result, improved wear. STEP1 is the range of skin equalizers developed to refine, smooth and even out. Our exclusive Equalizer Complex delivers 3 key actions:
