Yes you read it right! I actually have road trips where my sole purpose is to seek out makeup spots. But these things are not fun unless the car is filled with a bunch of girls equally as excited as I am for makeup. So a car load of us headed down to the Auzonville Mall in Tunapuna to seek out the Sacha Image Centre there for a makeup fix. They were in desperate need to get the right foundation and I was just trying to help them out right!
As excited as I was to get there I was just as peeved to finding a parking spot in this busy place on a Saturday morning. I thought this mall had a car park! But I digress. Onto my story!
So I have been here before as well as to the Image Centre in West Mall. Both are equally inviting and the displays of makeup always make me go weak in the knees.
On a Saturday morning there were two trained Sacha employees present but also 3 students. We were the second set of customers at that time with a third person entering shortly afterwards and then another group coming in for makeovers. Super busy on a weekend! However, their staff was extremely pleasant and did their best to accommodate everyone by rotating their attention to both the students and the customers equally. I know this would probably annoy some of us, but I didn’t mine at all since the store itself had shiny jewelry to distract me. Sacha has stepped out of just the cosmetics and perfume making and now into jewelry.
So for those of you new to Sacha Cosmetics, it’s a brand that is made right here in Trinidad & Tobago, established about 30 years ago by Kama Maharaj. They produce a wide range of items such as lipsticks and glosses, foundation, powders, blush, eyeshadows and more. You can see some of these below from their in-store displays.
The two products I use most from Sacha Cosmetics are their eye-shadows and cream to powder foundation. Hey the next picture shows you the in-store testers for these (including blush).
So we eventually got what we needed, the foundation was matched to her skin-tone perfectly. The Sacha rep applied the foundation, then powder, finished with fix it spray and it was amazing to see how flawless her face looked afterwards. Side note: After walking for more than an hour on the main road in hot sun doing shopping, her face still looked the same as when the foundation was first applied!
I loved the fact that the Sacha people were friendly and also very helpful in suggesting the right colours for our varying skintones. Great customer service even when super busy! Of course I didn’t leave the store empty-handed but I’ll proudly show you guys what I got a next time.
Overall I really did enjoy going to the Sacha Image centre and will be sure to pop in again soon. Be sure to check them out if you are ever near one. I’m sure you will find something for you.
Don’t you just love road trips! Where will I go to next?
