Bridgetown Beauty

So this is the last article from my Barbados vacation and it is dedicated to all you shoppers like me! Bridgetown is the capital city of Barbados and the main street is called Broad Street. It is a shopper’s paradise with duty free shopping. All you have to do is present your passport at the cashier to get the duty free price.
So I started off being dropped off by the taxi on Broad Street and the first shop we entered was called Jen’s Health and Beauty Supplies. 

This was an interesting shop and a lot of their beauty supplies were all natural products. Really great customer service here too! 

So moving up the street, I saw this really nice building that looks like it has a lot of history behind it. Just wanted to share with you. 
Broad Street has many shopping areas and malls but I really wasn’t interested much until I came to Cave Shepherd. It’s a huge place filled with beauty products from many different brands. Of course the first thing I noticed was the MAC booth. Their staff is extremely helpful. 
Another favorite for me in Cave Shepherd was the Victoria’s Secret section. I stocked up on their body butters and got a good deal on their Sexy Little Things. No pun intended. 
Of course you also have the nearby Harrison’s which is filled with maybe almost every possible brand of perfume you can think of as well as fancy shoes and bags. They had lots of Steve Maddens and Nine West shoes much to my hearts delight!
Walking in and out of the shops made me really exhausted since there was so much to see and it was quite a busy street so I surrendered back to the hotel. But once rested I ventured on my own to the Sheraton Mall which is in Christ Church. Again there was lots of shopping but what got my attention was Diamond Girl Beauty Supplies which to me is like Pennywise to the Bajans. Here I picked up my first set of OPI nail polishes and a Black Opal bronzer. When I compared the same bronzer at Pennywise, it was way cheaper in Barbados! 
Oh and another thing in case you are in Sheraton go get your massage at Cher-Mere! Yes they have a branch there too!
Of course there is shopping all over the island and I did have my fair share of buying handmade jewelry from the locals. They even come to you while on the beach which is how I got this wonderful bracelet.
Overall I enjoyed shopping in Barbados even though my reason for being there was more for a calming vacation but I would indeed recommend a trip to Broad Street for you to check out the wonderful duty free stores. You are sure to find something at a great deal!

Revlon Sculpting Blush Palette in Pink

I have never been so disappointed in a Revlon product before… until now! Maybe I chose the wrong colour for my skin-tone but there are so many other things about this palette that makes me think I should have bought some more lip butters instead. Let’s start with what I do love about the palette. It’s simple black compact that has the same sleek look as the other Revlon photo-ready items. I find a highlighter, contour shade and blush in one palette is a great idea too. Having more blush colour in terms of quantity with smaller sections for the highlighter and contour makes perfect sense since I will use more of the blush anyway. The colours as they appear in the pan look perfectly coordinated to work with each other. You get a small brush with soft bristles in your kit to ensure you can just pop this in your bag and you’re off.  In the sunlight Now here is where it all goes downhill like Jack and Jill with their pail of water. Let’s start with the swatches which made me think twic
