Top Five Makeup Products I Should Stop Purchasing

We all know that they're certain things we should stop buying. Personally, the hunt for the best thing used to have me prisoner. I'm working on that though. Presently these are the categories where I can admit that I really really shouldn't buy not anudda one...

Mascara

Mascara Collection - www.modenmakeup.com

This is ridiculous...and I still want a full size of the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir, Guerlain Maxi Lash and Chantecaille Longest Lash. Ok, those three and then I'm done.

Liquid Foundation

Liquid Foundation Collection - www.modenmakeup.com

Wid mascara I could almost give myself a bligh.. I enjoy putting it on; like I legit take my time with that ish. I rarely wear false lashes (largely due to the fact that I can't apply them) and I don't have extensions. Liquid foundation now is whole anudda case. I'd rather spot conceal and follow up with a powder. I barely leave the house and when I do, I want the fastest base makeup possible. Lastly, due to my extensive skincare collection I don't need a full coverage foundation. Given all that, what is really going on here? I need to find a new way to do those foundation reviews and then declutter like mad.

Makeup Remover Wipes

Ah boy, the comparison plight. That series isn't over but I can tell you hereso now: all those Yes To wipes burn my skin, the Bioderma ones are the bomb, the Neutrogena Night Calming ones are still a favourite - also readily available - and I'm most excited to try the Koh Gen Do ones since I love their Spa Water. On a whole though we need to look at the amount of waste these products create and maybe consider an alternative that's not as harsh on the environment. The other part is, I don't wear makeup often enough currently to get through a pack of wipes before they try out. Not like that stops me from using them; just add some micellar water.

Loose Powder

All this and I still want to try ones from Cover FX, Marc Jacobs, Lancome and Hourglass 😑

Setting Spray

Setting Spray Collection - www.modenmakeup.com

I'm a big fan of Skindinavia Bridal. That's something I would repurchase. That Blue Marble, Karolynn used on me and I feel it would mek yuh makeup last through a hurricane. Mist & Fix is still a favourite since it doesn't contain any alcohol. With the three of those plus my spray toners and stauch Fix+, wha more I could really want? I mean, I'm still going to try the others 😆

Lip products and highlighters shouldda been in here huh? Nah, I ain't giving up on them yet.

Let me know what are your favourites in these categories.

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.
