Letting Go

Third installment in this series and although I keep saying that I have too many products to suffer through ones that don't work for me, I still find myself trying to give things ev-ver-ry chance possible. So silly! Going forward I'm really going to have to take this title to heart and just let go. Read on to see the products I'm breaking up with.

Casualty: NYX Studio Liquid Liner 'Extreme Coffee'
Reason: I can't get the hang of these brush tip applicators



There's nothing wrong with the product; it's strictly user retardation.

Since the next couple of items are the same type of product I just lumped them together.

Casualties (all concealers): Milani Secret Cover 03 'Dark', Black Opal Fade & Conceal 03 'Toast' and Maybelline Fit Me 35 'Deep'
Reason: wrong shade
Milani - has a olive undertone that looks so wrong on me
Black Opal - too light, even as an under eye "brightener"
Maybelline - wha deep wha?

I added the Smashbox one as a colour comparison. I like that one for concealing blemishes.

I really like the doe foot applicator on the Maybelline Fit Me

How is that Fit Me 'Deep'? Stupse.

L-R: Milani Secret Cover, Black Opal Fade & Conceal, Maybelline Fit Me and Smashbox High Definition

The wrong shade of concealer doesn't have to be a total bust though, try using it as an eyeshadow primer before you give up.

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.
