It’s In My Bag Now:Maybelline Falsies Black Drama meets L’Oreal HIP Black Shock Eyeliner

Black will always be in style. On days when I’m super busy these two bad boys along with some face powder are my best friends. They can change my face in less than 5 minutes. Actually they are the key elements to my 5 minute face.
I’m a love-to-put-waterproof-eyeliner-in-my-waterline kinda girl and this is where my L’Oreal HIP color chrome eyeliner in Black Shock comes in. It’s super creamy, goes on smooth, stays put and gives me that intense black look but with a metallic finish. On a hot day it can get a bit too creamy and you have to remember to sharpen it since it’s made like a normal pencil but other than that no complaints here. No raccoon eyes.

Black Shock aka Edward


Mr. Black Shock’s best friend Mr. Black Drama aka Maybelline’s The Falsies is so true to his name. He is waterproof for those rainy days we are having lately. He’s super black, curvy, weights 8.5ml and loves to make a girl bat those long lashes. My only issue with him is that he can be so clingy, never wanting to leave me at the end of the day. I have to bring in my bodyguard, Mr. Makeup Remover before he leaves me alone. But he doesn’t take offence and returns to me everyday just to make me feel beautiful all over again.

Black Drama aka Jacob

These two boys gladly share my love for them. It’s my love triangle. If I were Bella, then Black Shock would be Edward and Black Drama would be Jacob since I love the L’Oreal HIP eyeliner just a little bit more! Either way they both follow me around every day vying for my love and attention. 
Do you have any love triangles with your makeup?

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.
