Firstly, a huge thank you to the lovely ladies at Senses, Limegrove. They let you know your gift with purchase options in the early; who doesn't love value for money?

The full size of this mascara retails for $41.99BDS DP (Cave Shepherd) and right off the bat lemme tell you I would pay that. When all this mascara here is gone obviously. The wand is similar to the ones used in the L'Oreal Voluminous line, but smaller. This gives you the control to coat every lash. 

The Clinique site simply says: "Kicks up the volume and length of each and every lash. Pure, deep colour only adds to the impact. Lashes get instant volume and length". I can attest to the volume and pigmentation i.e. it brings the drama that I like.

"REVIEW: Clinique high impact mascara. 
The wand has fibre bristles and a slightly tapered tip that makes it easier to reach the inner corner lashes. 
The formula provides definition and volume and is very pigmented.
Suitable for average to long lashes. Available where ever Clinique is sold on the island"

Too many coats will cause clumping so you'd have to go through your lashes with a lash comb or a mascara like this.

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…
