M.A.C x Mariah Carey Haul

See? No love lost...they're still getting my coppers.

If you're an ole school Mariah Carey fan; if you love all things sparkly, if you love M.A.C collections that feature specialty packaging then this collaboration was hard to pass up. M.A.C did increase the prices but I think the sparkles blinded us and we barely noticed...until it was too late.

As per usual, stock was limited in Barbados but Victoria and I got there early on launch day. Initially, I wanted a lipstick, the 239SE and the body shimmer...because packaging. I don't know how I ended up with the rest of those things 😏

Absolutely stunning packaging; probably the best since Alluring Aquatic. The attention to detail on both the boxes and product packaging itself is just dazzling. Literally. I think the collection truly looks like things Mariah would wear; I wish there were more nude lipsticks that catered to black women but hey...

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...
