Faves In Five | June 2016

Half the year gone. "Time waits on no man."

Jessup Tapered Highlighter Brush

This was a prize from the I Heart Makeup Class that Heidi and I attended last year and I'm very happy to have it. It's great for applying both subtle and WOWZAH highlighters and it washes up well.

Sally Hansen 18K Gold Hardener

A recent purchase that I've already cracked into. It definitely hardens my nails but I think the gold flakes are just there to look pretty.

L'Occitane Amande Shower Oil

"This shower oil transforms, when in contact with water, into a delicate foam that gently cleanses the body. Lather and massage in the shower and rinse." All that and it smells amazing.

O.P.I Expert Touch Lacquer Remover

This just might be my favourite nail polish remover.

O.P.I Crystal File

I bought the mini version of this some time ago and it doesn't hold a candle to the real deal. If you wear your natural nails - I mean without acrylic or gel overlay -  a crystal nail file is a must.

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.

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…
