Beauty at Bmex 2015


...was practically non existent this year. From the picture above you'd think there were just three booths. No sah! What's labelled as the 'Make-up Corner' which coincidentally was where Make Up Doll Cosmetics was last year, was where the models were being prepared for the fashion show.

Thus leaving Exotica Makeup and Extensions as the sole makeup company present.


They did a great job decorating their booth for their first ever exhibition.


On display were a range of products and tools at discounted prices. They also offered mini makeover services for patrons.


The star of the show was definitely their liquid lipsticks.

Many thanks to MichelleLydia and Shanece for their assistance.



Close by was a local natural soap maker so I stopped by to see if they could hook up my peppermint fix.


Bingo!

Tsalach had a lovely display of mini bars that they were advertising as wedding favours.


How cute!

Their body butter was all the rage at the exhibition; even Michelle said I had to try it. But I was not to be distracted!


So I got six Peppermint soaps and two Turmeric ones. I've heard Heidi speak highly about what turmeric does for acne prone skin so I decided to give that one a try.


I also decided to purchase one of the Exotica liquid lipsticks to add to the comparison series.


They were kind enough to include a NYX Long Pencil Lip as a gift-with-purchase :)


I guess we'll have to wait and see if any cosmetic companies will be at BMEX next year.

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*

Summer Standouts

It feels strange to talk about beauty products with all that's going on in the Caribbean. Our neighbours are going through some seriously trying times and I implore you to give whatever you can. 🙏

I didn't even realise that this was a running theme. Last year's was especially good since it featured some of my favourite combinations. Like last year, makeup seems to have taken a backseat this Summer.


There's only one item here that surprised me...but let me not get ahead of myself.
Y'all know exfoliators are a must in my skin and body care routine so the Bath & Body Works 'Lavender & Sandalwood' Clay Body Scrub and Coco Shea 'Coconut' Richly Nourishing Body Buff (thanks to the Mistress!) should come as no real shocker. Both smell amazing; again no shocker since regular readers know I'm a firm aromatherapy believer.
