Sunday's Beat

Hiii lovelies!!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!!

Who made it out to Girlfriends Expo 2015? Post your thoughts on the event in the comments below.

Well, I did the most makeup wise this weekend. Lashes, glitter and purple and pink lips allll weekend long. It reignited my love for applying my own makeup.

I worked at the #iheartmakeup booth with Shanelle, Kamilah and the other heartbeathelpers and had a ball. But I must say ladies, don't be shy, just because we beat faces doesn't mean we're gonna beat you. Come say hi 😊

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*

So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.

Can you tell which is which? No? Well, neither can I.
