Random Question

I know I can't be the only one.

Have you ever mistakenly picked up the wrong product? I mean: looked at what you wanted in the store and then like absentmindedly picked up the thing next to it? Well, that is the case with me and Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Genius.

I fully intended to purchase the Clear Brow Gel.

Don't ask me if it works cause I never used it. And I won't know either cause I'm pretty sure it's expired :( The claims: "Beauty Genius gel bonds, seals, and waterproofs powder makeup, loose pigment, loose shadows, micas and glitter. Beauty Genius is safe to use on the eyelids, face, lips and on the body." All that don't even matter cause it like it's no longer in production.

Let us know if you've ever tried it or if you've ever picked up a product accidentally.

p.s. for our international readers who may be wondering: "why didn't you just return it?" - I would have purchased this on a trip to New York since ABH doesn't retail in Barbados.

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.

With Key Ingredients:

Purified Lactic Acid: One of the most hydrating Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Lactic Acid exfoliates the surface layers of t…

It's A Dupe!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.

Can you tell which is which? No? Well, neither can I.
