Halener Rustique Purple Pigments- Disney, Lollipop, Stunnin & Rockinger


Tis’ the season to be swatching! Buckle up girlies I’m about to bring out four gorgeous purples from Halener Rustique who is a local Facebook seller of pigments. In case you’re wondering each pigment bag cost $5TT but these also come in small containers for about $15TT each. She also has sales at various times of the year where you can get about 30 pigment samples for about $100TT. Deal right!

Disney is a colour that appears white in the bag but has a purple duo chrome. It’s highly pigmented and a little goes a long way. Although it appears white in the bag, depending on how the light hits it you can see the purple duo chrome. Extremely sparkly in the sunlight. 
 
Lollipop is a bright true purple. Very pigmented with loads of sparkle. 
 
Stunnin is a dark purple with a black undertone. I didn’t like the black undertone but would have preferred it to be just the gorgeous dark purple plum colour it appears to be in the bag. 
 
Rockinger is a dark plum colour. The colour on application it true to the colour seen in the bag. This one is highly pigmented and even stains your skin a little. 
 
I really love all the purples from this set of Halener Rustique pigments but Lollipop is my favourite. Overall all the pigments are very finely milled, very sparkly and soft in texture. The colours themselves are extremely pigmented but buildable in case you want a sheer wash, just apply sparingly. I can see myself adding the pigments from Lollipop and Stunnin to clear lip-gloss to create stunning lip-glosses, pun intended!

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.
