Letting Go

Even more lip products I had to break up with...

Decluttered lip products www.modenmakeup.com

I really loved the colour of 'Fandango Purple' from Sleek but that Matte Me formula is torture. e.l.f's 'Tea Rose' is a nice colour but I have a lot of products in that shade range.

Milani Brilliant Shine Lip Glosses www.modenmakeup.com

These Milani glosses are pretty but I find them a bit too sticky to keep more than one.

Evolution Of Smooth Lip Spheres www.modenmakeup.com

I don't even know how these survived in my collection even after I determined that they weren't worth the hype. I did see someone say on YouTube that the containers are good for storing fine necklaces in when you travel so they don't get tangled. Maybe there's some use for these things after all.

They'll be more lip products to shed in the future but let's move on for now.

NYC High Definition Liquid Eyeliner www.modenmakeup.com

After a couple more uses I realised that: 1) this is not the NYC liquid liner that everyone on YouTube raves about and, 2) the Milani one I compared it to is more beginner friendly. 

And finally,

I told y'all eva since that I was giving up on this but I held on to it hoping to reuse the air pump bottle; but that pump top won't come off fuh hell! Ok, garbage.

Did you break up with any products recently?

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.
