Flashback Friday (M.A.C Heavenly Creatures Collection)

The M.A.C Heavenly Creatures Collection launched in June 2012. It reached our M.A.C counters in July. M.A.C releases a Mineralize collection every year.

From my last Letting Go post you've seen the bad experience I've had with M.A.C Mineralize eyeshadows. This time I must admit that this collection got me due to the names of the products. What can I say, I'm sentimental.

I purchased the eye shadow 'Water', the blush 'Stratus' and skinfinish 'Center of the Universe'. Of the three I still have the eyeshadow and the skinfinish.


I sold 'Stratus' via The Moden Makeup Marketplace when I realised that a Milani Baked Blush that I have was very similar to it. Up until today, I had never used the eyeshadow. A big selling point of these mineralize products is that you can use them with a damp brush to "intensify" the pigment. I definitely recommend doing that with this eyeshadow; unless you want to have fall out all down your face. I'd usually say skip the M.A.C mineralize eyeshadows - Temptalia would too - but I've seen reviews that say the formula has gotten much better.
I'm still in love with 'Center of the Universe' although those gold particles are not the most refined. Swirling all the colours together makes a lovely blush topper; or you can concentrate your brush on the orange and red parts for a lovely blush. Either way it's gorgeous.

Do you have any M.A.C Mineralize products? What are your favourites?

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.
