The Moden Makeup Marketplace - What the ??

Moden Mavenz,

So you bought a foundation and it looked perfect in the store. Of course there were NOOOOO testers, so poor you, no recourse. Did we mention the no return or exchange policy? AND your mother sister cousin brother doesn't want it!

Worry no more, this is a concept that has proven successful in the US and EUROPE. Have you checked out Makeup Alley? Now let me be frank, we do NOT want you to sell a lipstick you've had for the last 5 years, with the excuse that you never opened it, fair is fair.


Head to 3:30 for the review on Makeup Alley.

What we DO want is to encourage you to offload some of your new AND gently used products so that you are not inundated with a mobbaton of ill suited products. Get it?

Cue The Moden Makeup Marketplace.

We know your frustration, we share it. Now there is a place to relieve your buyers' remorse and PURCHASE with the proceeds from your sale a great product that WORKS for you.

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*

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…
