Brush Declutter

I've been collecting brushes steadily from late 2012. While periodically I've place a few of them in The Marketplace, I've never gone through the entire collection and sifted through what I don't use often.

I'm a big fan of the Wayne Goss eye brushes and from de time I knew I could get Chikuhodo brushes customized on Visage de dog dead.

When it came to the M.A.C brushes I had to make some relatively tough calls; often we feel we have to hold onto things due to how much they cost but I'm over that now.

So how did I do?

Not as well as I'd thought...but it's a start. I made up my mind to destash a lot of eye brushes since falling in love with the Wayne Goss ones. They feel great on my eyelids; so great that many other brushes now feel incredibly scratchy. You'll see a couple Zoeva brushes here from the Rose Gold set that I reviewed a while ago. I'm still fond of those but I noticed I had similar ones. Why not pass them on to someone who would appreciate them right? Right.

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.

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

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.
