#FlashbackFriday A Few Of My Favourite Things (Revisit)

Read the original post here.

I really like these #FlashbackFriday posts; it makes me assess what products are really tried and true. That's valuable information especially when you realise how long it takes to use these beauty products up. Sigh.

rms beauty lip & skin balm 'simply vanilla' 

The best lip balm I've tried ever.


Maybelline Master Hi-Light By FaceStudio Hi-Lighting Blush 'Mauve'

The most suitable blush shade from this line for black women.


CoverGirl LashBlast Volume 'Black'

Defines and volumizes; just be careful not to poke yourself in the eye.


M.A.C Cremesheen Lipstick 'Creme In Your Coffee'

I think this was the first M.A.C lipstick I ever bought and I still love it to this day. A gorgeous nude for black women.


Orly 'Rage'

Metallic rose gold awesomeness.


REN Clean Skincare Invisible Pores Detox Mask

Clay is a very cheap ingredient so I wouldn't suggest paying an exorbitant price for a clay mask. With that said, you still have to be mindful of potentially harmful additives that these companies add to clay masks to make you think they're working; yuh know, that tingling sensation. This one from REN is the gentlest yet most effective one I've ever tried.


Berkley Jensen Premium 100% Pure Cotton Rounds

The best ones readily available locally that I've tried.


NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 'Transylvania'

You already know that we love these.


NYX Lip Liner 'Plum'

My second most abused lip liner. First in line is L.A. Colors 'Sienna'.

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.

With Key Ingredients:

Purified Lactic Acid: One of the most hydrating Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Lactic Acid exfoliates the surface layers of t…

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.

Can you tell which is which? No? Well, neither can I.
