Would I Repurchase? Jordana Best Lash Extreme

Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

This is a YouTube cult classic if there ever was one. Beauty Vloggers have gone so far as to compare it to the Chanel Le Volume de Chanel which, as you can imagine, is wayyyyyyyyyy more expensive.

Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

The natural fibre bristles are arranged close together and hold a lot of product. As we've come to realise from these mascara reviews, those are the ones that create that full dramatic look. Coupled with a pigmented mascara formula of course.

This Jordana one certainly has that. To minimize clumping long term you'd have to wipe the excess product off of the bristles after a couple uses. Due to the rich pigmentation and lack of a taper on the wand I didn't use this product on my lower lashes most times.

The tube opening looks about the standard size. The stopper inside doesn't take off too much mascara nor does it allow too much product to be dispensed.

Worn alone, I found the product did provide volume. Not a crazy amount like the Lancome mascara I recently talked about but it was still decent.

With a mascara primer this thing is bananas. I tried it with the Lancome Cils Booster as well as the new Estee Lauder Little Black Primer. Both of those amplified the pigment and volume of the Best Lash Extreme. I experienced no flaking or smudging with this product whether on its own or with a primer. Clumping is possible as product builds up on the wand so if you're not a fan of cleaning it off I wouldn't go past two coats. This mascara formula isn't as wet as L'oreal ones but it wasn't overly dry either. It also didn't dry out much during its shelf life.

I purchased this in April from Duane Reade for $4.29USD (before Tax) and I am here kicking myself for only buying one. While Jordana products are available locally, I am yet to see this here. They're also available for purchase via Amazon*.

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.
