So Deliciously Forbidden with MAC Posh Paradise Mattene Lipstick

What did you do this weekend? Well I took a rather impromptu visit to West Mall and of course I never regret such trips. For me a trip to the MAC store is a must for me (along with a Burger King stop!). Now while I feel like I already live in a paradise, MAC’s Posh Paradise collection is quite impressive! I love the array of vibrant rich colours of the lipsticks, nail polishes and paint pots.

Trying to stick to my budget I only allowed myself one piece and got a Mattene lipstick called Deliciously Forbidden. How do they come up with these names?
Either way I say it is an accurate description of this colour. I love the sleek black packaging and velvet feel of the lipstick tube.
This lipstick has a semi-matte finish and is indeed more moisturizing than a normal matte lipstick. But besides that the colour is absolutely stunning! Take a look.
I would describe this colour as a midtone berry pink and I can see myself wearing this to work. Actually that’s what I did and I got many a compliment on my new lippie colour. I had to reapply after lunch but that lasted me straight through into my evening class until I got home (roughly 7 hours).
While I am getting a bit overwhelmed with all the new collections from MAC at the same time I am totally loving it. Of course all the great paint pots I wanted were sold out in store so now I’m off to see if by chance I can get ‘Nubile” at their online store. Wish me luck!

Coffee Date Night with Bae

There are some simple pleasures in life that I enjoy. Coffee is one of them and a good lipgloss. Today I can have both of them together while we go for a date with bae! Sacha Cosmetics has blown me away with their new intense lipshine glosses and awesome names. I love when companies try to just be real with their customers even in these small details. 

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…

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.
