M.A.C x Mariah Carey Haul

See? No love lost...they're still getting my coppers.

If you're an ole school Mariah Carey fan; if you love all things sparkly, if you love M.A.C collections that feature specialty packaging then this collaboration was hard to pass up. M.A.C did increase the prices but I think the sparkles blinded us and we barely noticed...until it was too late.

As per usual, stock was limited in Barbados but Victoria and I got there early on launch day. Initially, I wanted a lipstick, the 239SE and the body shimmer...because packaging. I don't know how I ended up with the rest of those things 😏

Absolutely stunning packaging; probably the best since Alluring Aquatic. The attention to detail on both the boxes and product packaging itself is just dazzling. Literally. I think the collection truly looks like things Mariah would wear; I wish there were more nude lipsticks that catered to black women but hey...

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.

#FlashbackFriday | Beauty in Panama

Panama is most definitely beautiful. It was never a place I intended to visit so let me begin by thanking Innovate Barbados and COPA Airlines for the opportunity. COPA Airlines sponsored Innovate Barbados 2018 and provided three tickets for attendees to any COPA Airlines destination in the Caribbean or Central America. Panama was being promoted as a shopping destination - cause yuh know how Bajans love tuh shop!

If you're new to this blog, when a post starts with 'Beauty at/in...' it's not about the places' landscapes. It's a beauty blog after all; we're all about what cosmetics are available.

Very popular brands are available in Panama; whether it's via stand alone stores or counters in Cave Shepherd  / JC Penny-esque department stores. They're a lot of pictures ahead to be prepared to s…
