Beauty at Girlfriends Expo 2015 (Part 2)

I didn't realise I'd taken so many pictures....

L'Oreal was also in the house. They sponsored many of the competitions being held and they hosted a raffle. I finally got to met their new Brand Champion in person. Exciting things on the horizon for #TeamModen.


iMart's booth was right next to theirs. 


This section was very busy at the time that I passed. I did see that they brought some Orly polishes and tools from the Cala line.

Patricia from Contour Beauty was with the CMC booth where they were featuring Maybelline products. That gift with purchase mirror is too cute!


Attendees took advantage of the manicure services being offered by Summa Nails.


With Bio Beauty not taking part in this year's tradeshow there was no nail polish for me to buy :(

So the things I purchased were handmade soaps from Ibis Bath & Body and Eden's Choice Naturals.

The soaps are $10 each and are wrapped in 100% recyclable tree free paper


The soaps are 100% Vegan. $6 each or 4 for $20.

Check them out on Instagram

I'm really impressed with the professionalism and customer service shown by these two entrepreneurs.

So what did I get?

(L - R): Ibis 'Minted Clay' Body Bar, Make-Up Doll Cosmetics Lip Gloss 'Velvet Teddy', Eden's Choice soap: 'Lavender & Eucalyptus', 'Tea Tree Oil & Bentonite Clay', 'Peppermint' and 'Oatmeal & Honey' (gifted) Thanks Gerri!, Free Spirits Cosmetics Lip Cream 'Pink Star' and Eden's Choice All Natural Hand Made Scrub 'One Love'

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…
