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.

Faves In Five | January 2017

Like Heidi and I, some things are just #bettertogether 😊

On a real, I love favourites posts where I share with you two products that work well together. This is another one.

Julie G 'You-niverse' + ILNP 'Rapture (H)'

Perfection.


M.A.C 'Chestnut' + Moden Cosmetics 'Bare Naked'

Bare Naked is nice warm nude with a very comfortable matte formula.


NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer 'Caramel' + Make-up Designory Loose Powder 'Desert'
I've raved about these products individually but together they create an under eye brightening masterpiece.

Laura Mercier Face Illuminator 'Illuminator' + Jessup Tapered Highlighter 
I know a lot of people love using fan brush…
