Faves In Five | May 2016

This is technically April and May's favourites combined.

NARS Monoi Body Glow II

The only thing that could improve this is a spray nozzle dispenser. This smells amazing and leaves a gorgeous sheen on the skin. It's a "dry" oil so you don't have to worry about looking or feeling greasy. Just beautiful.

Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Moisturizing Leave-in Conditioner

My Wife put me on. This is amazing for detangling extensions - tried and proven in New York -, moisturizing the scalp and generally smelling amazing. I already have a back-up.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Gloss '420 Reckless Bloom'

Lipgloss is making a comeback. The sparkle in this gloss gives impeccable dimension to the lips. The formula isn't sticky or gritty but it does remain on the lips for a while. It has a pleasant scent, decent pigmentation and a practical plush applicator. The price is hot at $76BDS DP each; other than that it's As all around.

Sunday Riley Power Couple Duo: Total Transformation Kit

There's definitely going to be a separate review on this. Just know for now that I think it's worth the money ($78USD from Sephora).

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*

2017 Top Five | Beauty Service Providers

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. Not to say, the outing isn't a good time - especially if you go with friends - but some settings leave you more intimidated than excited. #TeamModen affiliations aside, I can see how Heidi has grown as a Beauty Educator. And fuh my one part I know any session booked…
