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.

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…
