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!

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…

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…
