Revisit: Free Spirits Cosmetics #MarchMadness

You can read about my first time around with this local brand here. Even before doing that post I knew I wanted to try different colours from the line, i.e. more everyday wearable ones. I got 'Luv Me Or Hate Me' from Celebrity Spot in Bridgetown.


At Girlfriends Expo, while 'Caribbean Queen' still eludes me, I did manage to get 'Pink Star' Lip Cream. The packaging of both items is the same with the exception that the ingredients weren't listed on the plastic wrapping of 'Pink Star'. The formulas are also consistent; the lip cream is pigmented and provides opaque colour on the lips with minimal product. After trying those L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paints, you really appreciate these types of products coming with a doe foot applicator. The lipstick appears sheer upon initial application but is easily built up without looking cakey. Due to the nature of this pinky-nude colour it can be worn sheerly without looking terrible.




All of my initial thoughts still apply and I'm happy to have new shades in my collection. Free Spirits Cosmetics products are also now available via Faerie Faces / Beyond Beauty Barbados.

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*

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…
