Product Rave: Sugarpill Goldilux

Day 4!!

This is exciting!! I actually have a plan laid out for the blogs I'm going to write. So giving you all this info is making me very happy! So please share, comment and let us know if you really are enjoying this 31 day effort!

Onto the meat!! I purchased this pigment in 2011. Yes, 2011. And it is STILL going strong. I used it up to Sunday evening and my client was taken aback by the versatility of the product. No photos yet, but as soon as I get them, I'll share!
Sugarpill Goldilux Loose Eyeshadow


Easy to apply.
May be applied wet or dry.
Can be used anywhere on the face. So think lips, eyes, nose for extreme highlight if you're into that sort of thing.
Kadooment looks are made EASY. Just dab a bit onto the centre of your lid for a pop of gilded colour.
It lasts FOREVER.
Great for brides as, described below as a body shimmer.


As most pigments go, it can be messy.
Too much means a FLOP. You WILL look like a golden clown.
It literally flies all over the place, mid application especially if you are a brush blower. Just don't do it.
Don't screw the cap on properly and you'll need more wipes than Collins sells. Legit.

I HIGHLY recommend that you add this pigment to your collection if you are a makeup maven, artist, enthusiast. It doesn't matter, men, women, boys, girls.

Brilliant, highly-reflective metallic gold with breathtaking shine. The brightest gold you’ve ever seen. The micro-fine particles are super tiny, so this looks amazing sprinkled all over as body shimmer too.
Net weight: 5 grams
Loose eyeshadows are packed by weight. However, some ingredients may still settle during shipping, which gives the appearance of being less full.
Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Bronze Powder, Copper, Zinc, Silicon Dioxide, Silica

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.

With Key Ingredients:

Purified Lactic Acid: One of the most hydrating Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Lactic Acid exfoliates the surface layers of t…

It's A Dupe!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.

Can you tell which is which? No? Well, neither can I.
