Faves In Five | February 2016

I watch a lot of monthly favourites videos on YouTube because it's usually - gotta say usually since some folks are paid to mention/show things in those videos - a good way to discover products that actually work. I hope these posts will do the same thing for you.

Wayne Goss Brush 19

The softest brush that has ever graced my eyelid as I mentioned here.

I got one of these for The Wife recently and she gave it high marks so I had to go back to Pure Source and get one for myself.

Benjabelle Sunflower Brush Tree and Brush Tree Spinner

This is something I wish I had made. Makeup brush drying made a whole lot easier.

Perfume samples

I really appreciate the ability to try new scents without the full on purchasing commitment. Especially since social media might hype up a scent that's totally not for you. The best of this lot was the one from Tory Burch.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

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.

Unlike my Influencers post the persons mentioned below are all local and I know them. If that makes me biased then you should take everything I'm about to say with a grain of salt.

Heidi Bowen of Moden Makeup

Let's get the obvious one out of the way shall we 😉 I've said before how much I've learned watching Heidi conduct her Workshops. Since then she has increased her skillset, restructured her modules and truly focused on knowledge sharing. Every participant departs feeling enlightened; emboldened to try something they once thought was daunting. No one leaves empty handed. This kindda thing speaks to me because I've attended many M.A.C classes and saw the value only in the products I was reimbursed.
