Brush Declutter

I've been collecting brushes steadily from late 2012. While periodically I've place a few of them in The Marketplace, I've never gone through the entire collection and sifted through what I don't use often.

I'm a big fan of the Wayne Goss eye brushes and from de time I knew I could get Chikuhodo brushes customized on Visage de dog dead.

When it came to the M.A.C brushes I had to make some relatively tough calls; often we feel we have to hold onto things due to how much they cost but I'm over that now.

So how did I do?

Not as well as I'd thought...but it's a start. I made up my mind to destash a lot of eye brushes since falling in love with the Wayne Goss ones. They feel great on my eyelids; so great that many other brushes now feel incredibly scratchy. You'll see a couple Zoeva brushes here from the Rose Gold set that I reviewed a while ago. I'm still fond of those but I noticed I had similar ones. Why not pass them on to someone who would appreciate them right? Right.

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.

It's A Dupe!

posted on our Facebook page April 12, 2013 "DUPE ALERT: M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark vs Maybelline Fit Me! in 355 Coconut. Both look the same applied to the face and are the same texture when swatched. The Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is bigger by 1 gram but the Fit Me! is significantly cheap... *ahem* more "inexpensive". There is one shade darker in the M.A.C version but 355 is the darkest shade in the Maybelline. (I'm NC50). If you go through a lot of face powder it's worth a shot - LR"
Talk about a throwback!
I watched a dupe video on YouTube recently where this comparison was mentioned and it reminded me that I had the same thought a while ago. The finish on the skin is identical. Since this original post M.A.C has changed the packaging on their Mineralize line and Maybelline has rebranded/re categorised the Fit Me! range into: Dewy/Set + Smooth and Matte + Poreless.
M.A.C says: "A slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex that provid…
