Road Trip to SuperPharmTrincity

I have always loved SuperPharm for its spacious aisles, variety in products, being a one stop shop and of course the fact that you can touch and feel the items for yourself unlike other stores where you have to ask for assistance (hint hint).
The newest branch of SuperPharm is located in Trincity much to my delight. For my first trip to it I just followed the road as if I was going to the mall (from the highway)but at the roundabout just go straight ahead and in about 1 minute or 2 you will come to the SuperPharm building on your left (right after the Republic bank on your right).

No problems for parking at 5 o’clock in the evening and I’m in the store. I see the security on the outside so no need to worry about the car. Warm greetings as I enter the store. So far so good!I think they purposefully designed the store so that you meet the cosmetics section as soon as you walk in the door to trap customers like me! So true to their website, www.superpharm.co.tt they carry the brands of Revlon, Loreal, Black Opal, Black Radiance, Nicka K, Sacha Cosmetics, Jordana, and Maybelline. I didn’t see any Physicians Formula or Styli-Style thoughL. I’ll be sure to check back in case I missed it while drooling over the vast display of makeup.

If you look closely you can see missing spots already especially for the section that holds the Revlon Colorburst lipsticks. As part of the new opening of this location they have different specials on and at this time the Revlon Colorstay 12hour eye-shadow quads were at 50% of the regular price. Of course you know I grabbed one right? For $22.99TT I got the eye-shadow quad in Gems and Jewels.

Still on news for the makeup fans, Sacha Cosmetics has some new items and strange enough they couldn’t be found at the Image Centers yet. Second Skin foundation and Kamaflage foundation can be found here in new bottles. You can see them in the pic below. You can also get the updated black packaging in the Sacha eyeshadow singles and quads for some of the colours.

Moving onto hair lovers, I was really impressed with the wide variety of items from brands like GarnierFrutis, L’Oreal, Tresemme and others for their hair care items. If you want hair tools and accessories, then Goody and Conair will help you out.

Now these were just the items I was interesting in at this time but there is also an assortment of skin care products, shampoos and conditioners, treatments, hair dyes, nail polishes etc. They have the Ecotools single brushes and sets and as its Christmas time various gift sets such as from Bath and Body. I’m sure you will find something to love.
So when you done with all your makeup purchases make sure you stop by this aisle to get something to put all that makeup in. Super cute cases!
To end the experience I must say the staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. They didn’t have the Neutrogena makeup remover I wanted though but searched to make sure it wasn’t hiding somewhere. I did feel a bit crowded though since everywhere I turned someone wanted to help me but I guess that beats not getting any help at all. Some of the prices did seem a bit too expensive.
I really loved this new location, close to the mall and with so many things to see I’m surprised I didn’t buy more stuff. Go check then out for yourself. Happy Shopping!

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.
