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 :)

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…
