Beauty Product Q and A

Apologies for the break in #LipSwatchWeek transmission folks. We cranking again from tomorrow with the remaining three.

In the interim, I'd appreciate if you'd submit a beauty product question that you'd like answered. I'll post the responses at the end of the month.

Examples of questions:

What's the best inexpensive foundation?
What cleanser do you recommend for oily skin?
Which brand makes the best lipstick?
How do I get matched correctly for foundation?
Do these at home gel polishes really work?

You get the drift.

As we stated on Instagram: I'm not a trained professional so responses will be based on my personal experience (as: a shopaholic, someone who was curious about makeup since 2007 and a beauty blogger) and research. There's already a wealth of information on this blog but this is a chance to get an individual query/issue addressed.

I'm eagerly looking forward to getting the best information to you.

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.
