MAC Me Over Collection Finally in West Mall, Trinidad

I was anticipating the launch of the MAC Me Over collection for Fall 2011 here in Trinidad in what seems like forever (It was launched in North America since August 25th). But it’s finally here! Of course I had to be there on its first launch day (September 17th) to ensure I got the limited edition items that I wanted.
This collection started off as an online competition where you had to complete the sentence; Mac me over because…… Six super lucky winners were then chosen to be the faces of this collection. Overall this collection contains lipsticks, lip-glasses, lip and eye pencils, eye-shadows and eye-shadow quads, and shade-sticks, brushes, fluid-lines, nail polishes, blushes and cream colour bases. It’s a huge collection right!
The items I purchased were the lustre lipstick called Oh Oh Oh (Love that name!), and fluid-line in Midnight Blues. I also wanted the eye-shadow Moleskin to use as a blending colour but it was already sold out in store. Actually I really wanted everything but maybe next time I will be a lotto winner!
So hurry down dolls and check out the collection for yourself. There is something for everyone. You won’t be disappointed.

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…

Hot Milk Sponge Cake with Fresh Fruit & Coconut

In today's yummy post we are doing an easy sponge cake (no creaming of butter and sugar involved). Instead of torting this cake we are using two loaf pans to give us our two layers, which we will pull together with vanilla buttercream. I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…
