Top Five | M.A.C

From watching Tiffany's videos recently I was inspired to a Top Five series. Why not start with M.A.C since it's a brand I'm pretty familiar with? <euphemism of the year> Check out Tiffany's video:


In no particular order...

Fix+

Still. I always travel with the mini size. Critical for the dewy skin sandwich. The only bad thing about this is that the spray dispenser/pump mechanism starts to act funny coming on to the end of the bottle.

Prep + Prime Highlighter 'Peach Lustre'

Yuh know yuh like something when the first one isn't finished and you already bought a back up. Although this is labelled as a highlighter I use it for colour correcting.

Studio Fix Powder 

If you have dry skin I'd recommend a Mineralized Skinfinish Natural or the Studio Careblend Pressed but oily folks, this is for us. You can control the coverage depending on what tool you use. It can be used as a setting powder - if you want to add extra coverage - or stand alone as a foundation. As I said recently, it's a work horse.


Funny thing is, I haven't used this much recently; but when I think of an eye cream that I'd actually repurchase this is the only thing that comes to mind.

The last spot is a real toss up between 'Creme In Your Coffee' Cremesheen lipstick and 'Nightmoth' lip pencil. 'Nightmoth' might have a lil edge though since I already have a backup of that and I'm nowhere near done the first one.

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.
