NYX Coloured Mascara - Blue

Mavenz!!

Sorry I haven't uploaded since Tuesday (yikes), but a slight unwell feeling took over meh body. And I needed rest, that plus I had to work all day yesterday. Anyway excuses excuses! SORRY so late!!!

When this product first came on the scene, I was as per usual sceptical. Now, I've used blue mascara in the past. Purely under the influence of my stylish, very brave aunt who loves to experiment. I also saw my friend Keisha wearing some and it really made her face pop. On this particular day, I had to give it a go. I was not in the mood for a lot of makeup, but I still wanted something on my face that would stand out prettily not awkwardly. I think the beauty of a coloured mascara lies in the fact that no eyeshadow is necessary, a few coats and your makeup look is pretty complete. That's time saving, plus fashion conscious allll in one.

Here's a photo of my wearing the NYX Blue Color Mascara. Yes even with red hair, I am NOT above mixing colours.

Blue makes your whole face glow.



Pros: 
The colours are versatile, beautiful and suit most skintones.
Washes off easily.
Make eyelashes appear longer. 
May be toned down for work by applying one coat instead of several.

Cons:
Washes off easily.
Requires several coats for a SERIOUS pop of colour to appear.
Colour range/availability locally is poor.

I believe that anyone who wears these coloured mascaras will fall in love. Simple and subtle can make a HUGE difference between a good makeup look and a great one. So try one this weekend and let us know what you think!!

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…
