Neglected Favourites

Y'all know I have no problem allowing products to find new homes; so when I have things in my collection that I don't show love to for a while I feel really bad :(

These are few favourite colour face products that I "rediscovered" in my stash recently.

CoverGirl Queen Natural Hue Bronzer 'Ebony Bronze'

A classic case of 'YouTube made me do it' but one purchase I do not regret. When I found this in Jamaica I was overjoyed. I have a pretty angular face as is so I don't see the need for much contouring but when I do this baby is the inexpensive option.


the Balm 'Cabana Boy' Shadow/Blush

"So many men, so little time..."

the Balm's packaging is the best! This blush is incredible: the texture is finely milled, easily blendable, pigmented and has a glorious sheen. What a shame that I've barely used this since I hauled it.


Nars Cheek Palette 'Foreplay'

M.A.C Studio Careblend Pressed 'Dark Deep'

I hear very few people talking about this. I was surprised to see that it's still available on the M.A.C website. Their description: "An extremely soft, cream-like powder that glides onto skin and provides a smooth, fresh-looking natural-matte finish. Enriched with ingredients to help skin feel conditioned and comfortable". I believe it was MakeupbyTiffanyD that I first heard speak about this and I was intrigued enough to get it after attending a 'M.A.C In Mode' workshop way back when. After Logan recently destroyed my Blot Powder and half my MSF Natural I decided to bring this back out.


Sleek blush by 3 'Sugar'

I love mixing blushes so blush palettes are always a hit with me. As much as I also loved 'Flame' from this line I parted with it and kept this one. That middle shade 'Muscovado' is gorgeous! No wonder this was in my Top Ten 2013 blush picks.


What amazing products in your stash have you been neglecting recently? Do you have any of the items I mentioned? Let me know what you think of them in the comments.

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.

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.
