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.

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…
