Letting Go

It's kindda hard to believe that the last installment in this series was in March. A scan through the collection was definitely in order...

Casualty: Seche Vite
Reason: It just turns into a goopy hot mess (even after you put thinners in it)

I'm not too sure if I will repurchase this cause I'm still working through my Orly In A Snap.

Casualty: Black Opal Total Coverage Concealing Foundation 'Rich Caramel'
Reason: The shade is too light for me

I still like this product, I just need it in the right shade. I won't repurchase because I have a lot of concealers already.

Casualty: Avon Beyond Color Radiant Lifting Concealer
Reason: The shade is too dark for me

This came packaged with silver plastic all around it so I would have never known the shade.

Casualties: Boots Deeply Moisturising Lipcare, M.A.C Lipglass 'The Wee Coquette', M.A.C Lipglass 'Wonder Woman' (LE) and L'Oreal Colourjuice 'Cherry On Top'
Reason: old and under used; with the exception of 'The Wee Coquette' which is just ridiculously milky on me.

Casualties: Milani Liquif'eye 'Aqua' and NYX Slide On Glide On 'Purple Blaze'
Reason: They completely dried out

Casualties: NYX Eye/eyebrow pencil 'Auburn' and Maybelline Mastershape eyebrow pencil 'Auburn'
Reason: They're Auburn, what was I thinking? The product itself is good though

Nothing usable is going to waste so don't worry :)

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.

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

#Anti-Haul | My Brand Blacklist

In keeping with the Brand Awareness series, I was planning to do a Beauty Brands Drama series and discuss just that. The idea was scrapped cause really, I like to laugh and ting at dem tings but they don't truly matter in the grand scheme of life. What does matter though is that we be smart consumers. Let's not fall into mob mentality - whether for or against. Let's spend our money wisely and less susceptible to marketing ploys.

By all means, spend your money how you want. Like whichever brand you choose. Rep whomever influencer you "love". This is just my 10¢.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics

I bought one of his liquid lipsticks; I wore it once and then I threw it away (I didn't like the scent). Yuh see, I actually believe that this man is just an entertainer. He likes to say things for shock value. He likes the limelight...loves the attention. What he actually believes? I don't know if we'll ever really know. What I know fuh sure though is that he ain't tu…
