2016 Goals


Mavenz,

I hope your 2015 ended way way better than mine. A terrible bladder infection and worse migraines had me with a ridiculous fever for three days. I'm used to having migraines but these ones were so cruel I actually wondered how I could cut out part of my brain and still live...seyin serious!

Anyho, things are back to a manageable pace and it's back to the grind. So, what's good?

This year we're just generally hoping to do better. Better content, better Workshops, better products... you get the feel. Let us know what you'd like to see more of and we'll get to working on that too. While we'd love to continue to maintain everything as is, the truth is we can't. Hence why we need your support. Your patronage in The Marketplace, your comments, shares, likes etc. gets the word out there about Moden Makeup and in turn we can take those stats to brands/stores and build relationships. It's not to benefit us; it's about the collective. We want that mentioning Moden gets you discounts and special offers.

That's the ecosystem we're trying to foster here. Join us if you bout that life!


Logan is.

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.
