NYC Haul - Part 1

Ok, do these count as a part of Make Out 2014? 'Cause I'm not sure.


When Heidi was going to New York I sent her a ridiculous amount of Sephora links so I don't even know how she decided what to send back for me. Well, the above pic is what she chose out of the madness: Anatasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in 'Brunette', Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, Bite Vivid Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo in 'Violet' and 'Palomino', Cargo Essential Lip Color in 'Napa' and Flirt! Far Out Lengthening Mascara in '01 Extreme Black'.

Welcome my pretties!

I'll have reviews on everything eventually but for now check out the lipstick swatches:

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.
