Support.


With International Womens Day just passed I wanted to take this time to talk a little about support. Support (verb) according to www.oxforddictionaires.com: 2.2 - "Give approval, comfort, or encouragement to"; 2.3 - "Be actively interested in and concerned for the success of". Very often women are criticized of doing the very opposite. We have become known for judging, tearing down and sometimes downright hating each other for whatever reason.

I'm not here saying we all gotta get along. While ideal, that's unrealistic. We have different belief systems, ethics, likes and dislikes but what we should all have in common is a mutual humane respect. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" and all that. Which leads me back to support. I implore you to encourage one another. Many of us are trying to eek our way to success against some odds. Many times a simple positive word could improve someone's day immensely. It could literally save a life.

This could totally turn into a rant about big beauty companies preying on women's insecurities, people who only know what support is when they have a venture, people who seemingly believe they can spend your money but you can't spend theirs, etc. etc. but I'm sure we all have examples of what not to do.

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!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. 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.
