Ambrosia Cosmetics Blue & Purple Matte Eye-shadows # 154, 244, 464, 554, 654

This is the second set of matte eye shadows from my road trip to Ambrosia Cosmetics. Check out the yellow and greens if those are more your style. I’m really feeling the blues!
First up is creative colour # 154 called Rain Drop. It’s a soft light blue. It’s not a true matte although it appears like it is totally matte in the pan. The colour itself has a matte, slightly chalky finish but with soft shimmer in it. Hope that makes sense!
Just for reference look at Mermaid Tale creative colour # 534 versus Rain drop. Mermaid tale is more blue green. They are both very pretty colours eitherway!
Left: Rain Drop and on Right: Mermaid Tale
Creative colour #554 is called Atlantic Star. This is a medium blue and is almost truly matte. I could barely see a few shimmer particles in the colour. This one is smooth and highly pigmented. If you noticed it, some of the eye shadows come branded with a flower on top.
Creative colour # 654 is called Deep Marine. This is a true blue and is just like Atlantic Star in terms of texture and pigmentation.
Creative colour #224 is Northern Star. This is a medium purple but appears almost lilac in colour on application since the colour itself is not as pigmented as the blues. I really had to pack it on to get a nice rich purple colour. Has slight shimmer but the colour itself is matte.

Creative colour #464 is Sugar Plum. This is a deep purple but again this one wasn’t as pigmented as the blues. Again I had to pack on for the colour to show up. Has slight shimmer with matte colour.
Overall I was impressed with all the blues even with the slight chalky texture of Rain Drop but was disappointed with the two purples. They were not as pigmented as the 3 blues, which is a pity since they are gorgeous colours on their own. They are buildable though to get a deeper, richer colour.
Now there is nowhere on the packaging that says these are matte colours. I choose the colours based on the fact that they appeared matte in the pan compared to the shimmery ones at the store. If you don’t mind a few shimmery specks that are only visible up close then these would works as true mattes for you. 
One more set of Ambrosia eye shadows to go!

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.

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…
