Sephora Spring 2018 VIB Sale details - www.modenmakeup.com

I'm going to share five new recommendations and wish list items with you. Of course you can search the blog for 'favourites' to see a plethora suggestions. Everything I mentioned here I still use and enjoy.

Wish List

Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 - $28USD

https://consumer.olaplex.com/ image

Stephanie Nicole raved about this product a while ago and then recently I saw Eshani say that it really works. My hair is currently bleached and colour treated so any help I can get to make it stronger is very welcome.

Too Faced 'Sex On The Peach' Complexion Set - $45USD

Yuh know how we feel about value sets around here 😍 This one contains a full size Better Than Sex Mascara ($23USD) and Peach Perfect Setting Powder ($32USD) thereby making the set well worth the price.

Tom Ford Eye Shadow Blend Brush - $57USD


https://www.beautylish.com/ image

Tom Ford, like M.A.C, is switching all of his brushes over to synthetic hair. I'd like to get this one that a lot of people - most recently Michele Wang - rave before it's out of production.

Pat McGrath Labs MTHRSHP Subversive 'La Vie En Rose' Eyeshadow Palette - $55USD

https://www.patmcgrath.com/ image

Yes, yes I barely wear eyeshadow 😆 but I'm trying to change that. Also, it's so prrrrrrrreeeeeeeeetttttttyyyyyyyyy. Unlike her 10 pan palettes, these cuties are limited edition.

Lilah B. Glisten & Glow Skin Illuminator - $60USD

Recommendations

Dr. Jart+ Mask Lovers Collection - $29USD

"This set contains:

I recently tried his Water Replenishment Mask and was thoroughly impressed. This set is exclusive to Sephora.com and limited edition.

Estee Lauder Powerful Nighttime Renewal - $80USD

That is value for your money.

That Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator is full sized and retails for $79USD 😲 If I didn't already have a back up I would be all over this.

Kat Von D Everlasting Mini Liquid Lipstick Set - $49USD

I'm surprised this is still in stock.

This is a great way to try her Gloss Bomb if you haven't already.

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.
From the MUFE site -  "Details: STEP1 Skin Equalizer triples the power of your foundation: easier application, optimized makeup result, improved wear. STEP1 is the range of skin equalizers developed to refine, smooth and even out. Our exclusive Equalizer Complex delivers 3 key actions:
