Deer Park CCO Haul

One chilly day after a trip on the Long Island Rail Road we reached a place of sheer jubilation. Deer Park has many many many outlet stores for very popular brands including: Gap, Coach, Kate Spade, J Crew, Adidas, Saks Off Fifth Avenue etc. etc. Of course we went for the makeup. First stop was The Cosmetics Company Store where we saw loads of M.A.C, Bobbi Brown, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Tom Ford, Smashbox, Origins, Joe Malone...and I'm probably forgetting some. Basically brands under the Estee Lauder umbrella.


We got lost in the makeup vortex. There were past M.A.C collections from Maleficent, RiRi Hearts M.A.C, Kelly and Sharon Osbourne, Temperature Rising, Alluring Aquatic and the Christmas collection. Sooooooooooooo many things, not enough money :(

The motherload
  • Origins Skincare Must Haves
  • M.A.C Extended Play Gigablack Lash 
  • M.A.C Prep+Prime Highlighter 'Peach Lustre' (repurchase)
  • M.A.C Turquatic Rollerball
  • M.A.C Demi-wipes
Just a few stores away there was a Designer Fragrance & Cosmetic Co. that had select Lancome, YSL, Clarisonic and Giorgio Armani products. Sweeter still, brand new to the store was Urban Decay products...i.e. the L'Oreal brands where there.

The other motherload
  • Urban Decay Nail Color 'Vice'
  • Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Eyeshadow Palette
  • Urban Decay Ocho Loco 2
  • Urban Decay Triple Threat Travel Pencil Set
L -R: 'Deep End', 'Ultraviolet', 'Tornado', 'Twiced Baked', 'Crave', 'Mars', 'Roach' and 'Demolition'

Of course I bought more stuff, but all of them weren't for me *wink*

One thing's for sure, next New York trip I'm heading to Deer Park first!

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…
