Pun De Cuttin Board

A lot of the time, the reason we can't decide if to keep something in our collection or let it go is because we haven't tried it enough. In 2018, let's make an effort to work through our stash so we can weed out the meh products and the things that just didn't work for us. I challenge you to pick out a few products, incorporate them into your routine for a month or two then purge what you don't absolutely love after an allotted time has passed.

Here's how I'm starting:

Pun De Cuttin Board 1 products - www.modenmakeup.com
  • Embryolisse Hydra-Mat Emulsion
  • M.A.C Pro Longwear Paint Pot 'Layin' Low'
  • L.A. Colors Grafix Eyeliner 'Teal'
  • Illamasqua Beyond Powder 'OMG'
  • Givenchy Prisme Libre Mat-finish & Enhanced Radiance Loose Powder '3 Organza Caramel'
I figured five items was enough; especially since I now gotta get back in the habit of wearing makeup 😩 It's embarrassing how long I had that Givenchy powder and it ain't even open. Rosita raved about the translucent version so I decide to give the product a try.

'OMG' was not the shade I wanted in the Illamasqua highlighter. I should have payed more attention while ordering from Beauty Bay. It was 'Deity' I was after...I might still get it 😜

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.

The beauty industry is really ovadoing it with the releases cause they realise consumers are just lapping it up. We really need to take stock of what we have and be more mindful of what we're purchasing.

Personally I'm at a point where not much excites me and I truly need to cut my eye at the people tings 😁 That and Auntie Mia wanna put VAT on online purchases 👀I dunno how we gine survive bout hey! Of course I still wanna support the local M.A.C counters and attend Beauty Tradeshows so I gotta be realistic. A low buy suits me just fine.
