Letting Go

Even more lip products I had to break up with...

Decluttered lip products www.modenmakeup.com

I really loved the colour of 'Fandango Purple' from Sleek but that Matte Me formula is torture. e.l.f's 'Tea Rose' is a nice colour but I have a lot of products in that shade range.

Milani Brilliant Shine Lip Glosses www.modenmakeup.com

These Milani glosses are pretty but I find them a bit too sticky to keep more than one.

Evolution Of Smooth Lip Spheres www.modenmakeup.com

I don't even know how these survived in my collection even after I determined that they weren't worth the hype. I did see someone say on YouTube that the containers are good for storing fine necklaces in when you travel so they don't get tangled. Maybe there's some use for these things after all.

They'll be more lip products to shed in the future but let's move on for now.

NYC High Definition Liquid Eyeliner www.modenmakeup.com

After a couple more uses I realised that: 1) this is not the NYC liquid liner that everyone on YouTube raves about and, 2) the Milani one I compared it to is more beginner friendly. 

And finally,

I told y'all eva since that I was giving up on this but I held on to it hoping to reuse the air pump bottle; but that pump top won't come off fuh hell! Ok, garbage.

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.

Unlike my Influencers post the persons mentioned below are all local and I know them. If that makes me biased then you should take everything I'm about to say with a grain of salt.

Heidi Bowen of Moden Makeup

Let's get the obvious one out of the way shall we 😉 I've said before how much I've learned watching Heidi conduct her Workshops. Since then she has increased her skillset, restructured her modules and truly focused on knowledge sharing. Every participant departs feeling enlightened; emboldened to try something they once thought was daunting. No one leaves empty handed. This kindda thing speaks to me because I've attended many M.A.C classes and saw the value only in the products I was reimbursed. Not to say, the outing isn't a good time - especially if you go with friends - but some settings leave you more intimidated than excited. #TeamModen affiliations aside, I can see how Heidi has grown as a Beauty Educator. And fuh my one part I know any session booked…
