Saks Fifth Avenue Haul

I made a wish list last September of all the things I was lusting after for the longest. When I decided to start the Make Out 2014 challenge I figured it'd make more sense to restrict that to new releases. I couldn't possibly ignore these beautiful things that I've wanted for forever. Right?

Many many thanks to T.E.A.M Imports for making this possible :)

The Mother Load



08 'Ebony'

The insert says that these four powders are matte but the two on the left have small gold particles in them. From the swatches it doesn't appear to transfer to the skin. This product is heavily scented. 



'Savage' and 'Flush'


*cue celestial music* I finally have a Tom Ford blush. Let's just take a moment.

I shot these without flash but I don't know why 'Flush' is showing up so pink. It's more coral with a golden sheen. 




28 'Rouge Fatal' and  07 'Paradiso'

I had a really hard time deciding which lipstick to get from the permanent range. I finally decided on a red, can't go wrong with that. 'Paradiso' is from his new Spring 2014 line. 




'Suede' blended out

YouTube vlogger Destiny Godley raves about this concealer, so you know I had to add this to my concealer quest

You'll see a whole lot more information about the YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch highlighter pen in my very next post.

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.

Summer Standouts

It feels strange to talk about beauty products with all that's going on in the Caribbean. Our neighbours are going through some seriously trying times and I implore you to give whatever you can. 🙏

I didn't even realise that this was a running theme. Last year's was especially good since it featured some of my favourite combinations. Like last year, makeup seems to have taken a backseat this Summer.


There's only one item here that surprised me...but let me not get ahead of myself.
Y'all know exfoliators are a must in my skin and body care routine so the Bath & Body Works 'Lavender & Sandalwood' Clay Body Scrub and Coco Shea 'Coconut' Richly Nourishing Body Buff (thanks to the Mistress!) should come as no real shocker. Both smell amazing; again no shocker since regular readers know I'm a firm aromatherapy believer.
