Product Rave: NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

Hi Mavenz,

I love love love this product. NYX has definitely hit the nail on the head with this formula. I find the newer lighter shades like Cairo and Athens are excellent for neutral, nude looks and I absolutely NEED Prague in my collection. But I LOVE the darker colours in the range, Transylvania and Copenhagen.

Don't trip over the names. They are all major cities in the world and if you familiarise yourself with the cultures, you'll see why they were named as they were.

Here I mixed Monte Carlo & San Paulo, I LOVVVEED this combo. It was gorge! 


Here is a photo:

Find them here:

My favourites are San Paulo, Monte Carlo, Milan, Abu Dhabi and London. Transylvania, Copenhagen and Morocco are huge in my book as well. As the website describes, they aren't lipsticks or glosses. They apply wet and dry to a matte finish.

Pros:

Wide variety of colours and the perfect shade of red. Suits ANY skintone.
May be mixed and matched to create a custom colour.
Do not dry out the lips.
Comes with a handy dandy doe foot applicator, gets right into those corners and crevices for even application.

Cons:
If reapplied after first application, they tend to roll up on the lips and in some cases flake or crumble.
Some of the colours have to be layered OR applied, allowed to dry and reapplied.
The formula seems to dry out in tube, so use them up fast or store upside down.


This is Morocco. WE can wear brights too!! 


You will not regret purchasing this product, just try and select a complimentary shade for you. It is a must have! Trust ya girl!

xoxo
Heidi.

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*

Unlike my Influencers post the persons mentioned below are all local and I know them. If that makes me biased then you should take everything I'm about to say with a grain of salt.

Heidi Bowen of Moden Makeup

Let's get the obvious one out of the way shall we 😉 I've said before how much I've learned watching Heidi conduct her Workshops. Since then she has increased her skillset, restructured her modules and truly focused on knowledge sharing. Every participant departs feeling enlightened; emboldened to try something they once thought was daunting. No one leaves empty handed. This kindda thing speaks to me because I've attended many M.A.C classes and saw the value only in the products I was reimbursed. Not to say, the outing isn't a good time - especially if you go with friends - but some settings leave you more intimidated than excited. #TeamModen affiliations aside, I can see how Heidi has grown as a Beauty Educator. And fuh my one part I know any session booked…
