Ambrosia Cosmetics Pinks & Orange Matte Eye-shadows #374, 424, 475, 774


Moving onto the matte pinks and oranges from my first trip to Ambrosia Cosmetics. Be sure to check out the blues and purples or yellows and greens if these are your colours. Ever since I was a little girl the colour pink was my favorite and this stuck with me until now. Of course I have branched out and from time to time I have different favourite colours. My nieces seem to have picked up on the I-Love-Pink colour phase too!  Now onto my story. 
 Creative colour #475 is Havana Cream. This is a peachy brown which is a colour almost like my skin tone! The colour is matte but I could detect small shimmer particles in it, just a few though. It blends very smoothly and if you have a skin tone like mine it would work great as a blending out colour. 
 
Creative colour #424 is Serene Sunset. This is a bright orange at least in the pan. It’s a very soft colour once applied, even after trying to pack it on. I actually prefer the soft colour but of course most times you want the colour that appears in the pan to be translated onto the makeup application. There are a few shimmer particles within the matte orange colour. 
 
Creative colour# 774 is Butterfly Wings. This is a bright fuchsia, again mostly in the pan. Not pigmented for me when applied. 
 
Creative colour# 374 is Blushing bride is a soft baby pink. I was disappointed with this one since it looked very pale, closing in on a white than the beautiful pink in the pan. 
 
Beside the fact that I found a blending out colour for my skin tone I wasn’t at all impressed with this bunch. Just to note all the swatches were done without any primer underneath so this is just the pure colour showing through. I’m still on the hunt for some pigmented pinks!

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.
