The rubber bristles make lash separation and definition very easy; but once product starts to accumulate on the wand clumping happens. I think the "corner-to-corner volume" claim is made possible due to the taper of the bristles. The wand size is even adequate for lower lash line application. That was my preferred use for this mascara.

The outer packaging says "unique lash styler twirl as you apply"...while the bristles aren't constructed in the standard format, you should 'twirl' any mascara as you're applying to have maximum deposit of product. In standard CoverGirl fashion, their 'very black' formulas are very pigmented and a medium (read: neither wet nor dry) texture. That also means it takes a bit more effort to totally get it off. While it "removes easily with soap and water", I've found solely using that method always leaves remnants in my eyes. Imagine waking up the next morning with dry crusted mascara piled up in your tear ducts. TMI? oh...ok. I experienced no flaking or smudging whilst trying this product.

If you're in the practise of wiping excess mascara off before you apply, this is a product you could love from start to finish. If you don't - while the stopper in the tube does remove some product - after a few uses I wouldn't suggest going past two coats/layers.

iMart seemed to have dashed away CoverGirl products so it doesn't seem like this is something you'd find locally. International readers, the price varies but the average is $7.49USD, as always there's usually some coupon or BOGO offer.

This one is going to come down to personal preference but I'd recommend it even if it's just for the lower lashes.

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…
