Make Out 2014 - March Update

From 2/14 at the end of February to a whole lotta lip products...

March haul

and lip products was the one thing I said I certainly need no more of. Sigh.

My Saks Fifth Avenue haul has swatches of the Tom Ford lipstick, Heidi raved about those NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams and I just wanted another NYX Butter Gloss so I could do an overview. If you follow our Facebook page or my Instagram you would have seen when the new Milani products reached No. 1 Beauty Supply. I had to try their anti-feathering lip liner especially since I've heard that it performs as well as the Make Up For Ever one. 

6/14:( How will I make it?

In related news, the nail polish haul was straight up ridiculous! In my defense: 1) I didn't purchase all of these, and 2) I'm on the hunt for the perfect polish in certain colours. The rest I will be placing in the blog sale.


Any tips for effectively using those nail appliques?

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…
