Conceal It!

I'm excited! First time in a long time I'm glad I bought a concealer! 
Believe that I've tried MAC, Estee Lauder, Lancome, Fashion Fair, Covergirl, NYX, Milani, even Ruby Kisses, ohhhh boy I've run the gamut! 
So on my recent travels I sought out the perfect concealer for me. My skin is sensitive,  hyperpigmented, and oily.  I bought three, L'oreal True Match Crayon, which my YouTube Vlogger itsjudytime tried, a wet n wild one and a Black Radiance concealer! 
Well let me tell ya, I want a vat of this product. It is THE bomb! Light to full coverage, and it has a light fragrance that's not at all overpowering. See swatches below.
If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you'll see what it looks like with and without flash. And while I agree with Lucinda about Deep not being deep for women of colour at alll, this medium deep has a nice orangey peachy undertone to cover my dark spots and give my under eye area a beautiful glow. 
When I pair it with my Ben Nye Banana Powder, it's pure glamour and divaliciousness all day erryday. Soooo if you can get your hands on it try it out. I'd love to hear what you think!

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.

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.
