Kevyn Aucoin The Creamy Glow 'Euphoria'

This was a real itty bitty haul. I was totally sold on this product by Wayne Goss' review. Before this, my only experience with cream blushes had been the ones from NYX.

Sadly, I really haven't used it much; hence why it's in the Project 15 Pan

Since then though, I've been putting it to work.

For application I like to use small duo fibre brushes like the e.l.f Small Stipple Brush or the M.A.C 130.

The formula settles down to a kindda powder finish; I say kindda because the glow definitely remains even after you powder over it. 'Euphoria' can be worn alone as a soft rosy flush of colour on the skin or as a base for a similar or complementary powder shade.

Don't forget that cream products have a shorter shelf life than powder ones. So please don't leave ignore them.

What blushes have you been loving lately?

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.

Summer Standouts

It feels strange to talk about beauty products with all that's going on in the Caribbean. Our neighbours are going through some seriously trying times and I implore you to give whatever you can. 🙏

I didn't even realise that this was a running theme. Last year's was especially good since it featured some of my favourite combinations. Like last year, makeup seems to have taken a backseat this Summer.


There's only one item here that surprised me...but let me not get ahead of myself.
Y'all know exfoliators are a must in my skin and body care routine so the Bath & Body Works 'Lavender & Sandalwood' Clay Body Scrub and Coco Shea 'Coconut' Richly Nourishing Body Buff (thanks to the Mistress!) should come as no real shocker. Both smell amazing; again no shocker since regular readers know I'm a firm aromatherapy believer.
