Letting Go

Some more things I just gotta break up with.

Casualty: Fashion Fair Perfect Finish Creme To Powder Makeup 'Topaz'
Reason: I had this for donkey 'ears


It's a great formula but the colour was a little off. I bought this in St. Lucia many moons ago before I was even really interested in makeup.

Casualty: Clinique even better clinical dark spot corrector
Reason: I never reach for it


After the comparison post I held on to this thinking that I'd use it if my skin was feeling dry...and I never did. 

Casualty: Botanicals Perfectly Concealed Palette
Reason: Wrong shade


These Botanicals compacts are very sturdy and the mirror is an adequate size. I just wish the product inside was suitable for my skintone.

Casualty: NYX Slide On Eye Liner 'Tropical Green'
Reason: Product dried out


Sad sad sad. Use your products people.

Casualty: M.A.C Mineralize Eye Shadow 'Style Influencer'
Reason: It dropped and broke and was subsequently useless


This eye shadow formula is very soft so you have to be careful with it. The format of the shadow made it impossible to repress since the individual colours would be lost. 

Did you have to toss any beauty products recently?

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.

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

Unlike my Influencers post the persons mentioned below are all local and I know them. If that makes me biased then you should take everything I'm about to say with a grain of salt.

Heidi Bowen of Moden Makeup

Let's get the obvious one out of the way shall we 😉 I've said before how much I've learned watching Heidi conduct her Workshops. Since then she has increased her skillset, restructured her modules and truly focused on knowledge sharing. Every participant departs feeling enlightened; emboldened to try something they once thought was daunting. No one leaves empty handed. This kindda thing speaks to me because I've attended many M.A.C classes and saw the value only in the products I was reimbursed. Not to say, the outing isn't a good time - especially if you go with friends - but some settings leave you more intimidated than excited. #TeamModen affiliations aside, I can see how Heidi has grown as a Beauty Educator. And fuh my one part I know any session booked…
