M.A.C PRO Product Demo

Tonight I attended the above captioned event at the Limegrove branch. The new Regional Trainer Mafe Arrom did a Carnival/Galaxy inspired on her lovely model Ashley. These demos tie into the recent M.A.C Carnival launch. Through this collection, select PRO products will be available on local counters for the next six months.

I'm always impressed with how little makeup Professional Makeup Artists apply on their models. These people believe in building light layers and working products into the skin. The finish is always stunning.

Heavily featured in M.A.C's PRO line are their Chromalines and Pigments.

Mafe created a stunning halo eye with 'Marine Ultra' Chromaline as a base along with 'Reflects Pearl' and 'Silver' glitters mixed for the pop of sparkle on the lid. Ashley's under eye concealer was set with Set Powder 'Deep Peach'.

The lips were a combination of: Chromagraphic Pencil 'Process Magenta' + Matte Lipstick 'Candy Yum-Yum' + Lip Glass 'Girl About Town'.

This demo took me back to M.A.C Technique days (on a smaller scale of course). We were offered wine and cupcakes while we were attended to by the M.A.C Artists on a one-on-one level. There was also a giveaway which Victoria won 👏

The event cost of $200BDS was redeemable in products. I didn't really know what to get but a few of the new Studio Waterweight products caught my eye. As per usual, check out Periscope for my hauls 😉

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.

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.
