Faves In Five | Current Favourites

Well uuuhhhh this is awkward 😔 Actually, what had happened was...between migraines and a wisdom tooth extraction I din much use tuh muh self for a while. My humblest apologies. I hope you've still been rocking with #TeamModen on Facebook and Instagram.

Now let's clear away some cobweb and talk favourites.

Bath and Body Works Tiare Monoi Body Oil 

"Tiare monoi oil, made from Tahitian gardenia blossoms steeped in coconut oil, has been a beloved skin-conditioning secret throughout Polynesian history. Our illuminating Tiare Monoi Body Oil leaves skin feeling soft and beautiful with a long-lasting, subtle sheen." Great scent and a little shimmer for that extra glow 🙌Available from InYOUvations for $27.50BDS.

NARS Lip Gloss 'Stolen Kisses'

"Sparkling Caramel Pink." My wife sent this for me and I am most grateful. I must have never tried a NARS gloss before because this formula was a new experience for me. The formula isn't sticky but it still lasts. 'Stolen Kisses' looks great on its own or over a nude lipstick and/or lip liner.

Smith Cosmetics 256 Arrowhead Laydown Eyeshadow Brush Large
"#256 Arrowhead Laydown Eyeshadow Brush Large

Created with flexibility in mind, this brush features a versatile shape and is made of soft, thin pony hair. The pointed tip fits easily into the inner and outer corners of the eyes, while using the outside edge creates a beautiful natural crease contour.

Product Pairing: #256 is for use with powder products.
" This was an excellent recommendation from Trisha while she was at the Smith Cosmetics booth at The Makeup Show L.A. It's great for sparkly lid shades and particularly good for those of us with small eyes. I have to get the smaller version. These Smith brushes handles are a little longer than I would prefer but I can't knock their quality. image

Malin + Goetz Acne Treatment Nighttime

"Our Acne Treatment synthesizes salicylic acid with 10% active sulfur to effectively dry and medicate acne pimples. Balanced with organic camphor to help fight impurities, our formula incorporates zinc oxide to help prevent signs of scarring.

select ingredients.
active sulfur dries.
salicylic acid exfoliates.
organic camphor calms.
zinc oxide is known to reduce signs of scars.

for all skin types.

Do not shake. After cleansing, dip a cotton swab into sediment and apply directly to blemish at bedtime. Do not rub. Leave on overnight for best results. Limit to one application daily as over applying can lead to dryness.

Since purchasing this I feel no need to use any of these acne treatments. It smells hella strong but it works.

M.A.C Shiny Pretty Things Haul

In the most tardy local M.A.C Holiday release ever, Shiny Pretty Things was made available when the new store finally opened in The Colonnade Mall on December 3rd.

From YouTube chatter, it seemed like the eyeshadow singles and the Extra Dimension Skinfinish 'Snowflushed' were the hot ticket items. 'Snowflushed' is supposedly a big pan of 'Stylishly Merry'. To me, those thing were definitely mesmerizing to look at but the lip glasses were the unexpected stunners.

At this point, M.A.C items in limited edition packaging are collector's pieces. Right? Right. I was more looking at what would make great gifts.

The matte bright fuchsia 'Both Cheeks' looked gorgeous too but we all know I barely wear pink lipstick.
