Make Out 2014 - January Update

Not sure what Make Out 2104 is? Read up here. This post is just a progress report.

I'm doing very well! For the entire month the only "new" thing I purchased was a mascara. Now you may ask, why would I buy a mascara when I have sooooooooooooooooo many that I'm yet to try? Very good question. I was impressed with the YSL Faux Cils Shocking and really wanted to try their 'Babydoll' version which I heard was even better. The only access we have to YSL locally is in the departure lounge of GAIA so you know I was all over that counter on my way to Jamaica last month. I greedily grabbed up that $56 mascara thinking this is gonna blow me outta the water...turns out the joke is on me. Watch the keekback in the comments to see my debacle. LOL.

This technically means I still have 14 more purchases to go because the challenge doesn't include re-purchases, skin care, items on my wish list or nail polish. No way could I have included nail polish.

So, what beauty products have you purchased recently? I've got my eye on those new Tom Ford lipsticks in his Spring collection. Swoon.

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.
