Ambrosia Cosmetics Yellow & Green Matte Eye-shadows # 534, 624, 724, 824, 914


So after my road trip to Ambrosia Cosmetics to get Konad plates and ending up with a palette full of eye shadows I thought it only fair to share my thoughts on these for you. These are the first 5 colours in my 15 colour palette; the yellow and greens. 
 
So Creative colour # 914 is called Canary Gem and it’s a bright yellow. It’s a nice matte yellow and I definitely didn’t have any yellow in my stash until now. It applies on first try a bit chalky but the colour is buildable to get that intense yellow colour. 
 
Creative colour # 624 is called Citrus Peel and this is a matte chartreuse (yellow green) colour. It’s more to the yellow side though. Just as chalky as Canary Gem and buildable to get that intense yellow green colour. 
 
Creative colour #824 is Lime Fusion and it’s a matte soft green. This one is a lot chalky than the other two and streaky. This one disappointed me with the texture but the beautiful colour makes up for that. I’m in a loving-green mode lately. 
 
Creative colour #724 is Fern Leaf and is a matte medium green. This one was a surprising stunner since it was extremely pigmented and the texture was smooth, not at all chalky. Beautiful colour! 
 
Creative Colour #534 is called Mermaid Tale and is a matte turquoise colour. This one is a touch chalky but very close in texture to Fern Leaf. 
 
Overall, I think this set of eye-shadows is great even with the slightly chalky texture that is sometimes very common with matte eye shadows. The colours are pigmented and buildable. Only Lime fusion failed to impress me and my favourites out of the bunch are Fern Leaf and Mermaid Tale.
Looking forward to making some new looks with my new yellow and green matte eye shadows from Ambrosia cosmetics.
XOXO

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. 

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.
