Daphne Guinness for MAC Collection- Vintage Grape Love


What did you guys do this weekend? Honestly I didn’t go to West Mall on Saturday with the intention of buying any makeup but I did notice that my mascara was running a bit dry. But what did I find instead? The first MAC collection for this year here in Trinidad, the Daphne Guinness for MAC collection. This was released on Boxing Day last year for the North Americas. 
 
So they had the False Lashes Extreme Black Mascara which is what I came to check out but of course I wanted to see what else the collection consisted of. I am in a blush phase lately so these caught me eyes firstly. There are two Blush Ombres in this collection, a light pink colour called Azalea Blossom and a soft purple/ pink one called Vintage Grape. I wanted to try out Azalea Blosson since I am just drawn to anything pink but I let the MAC makeup artist make her suggestions on what she thought would look better on my skin tone and she surprisingly went for the Vintage Grape. (FYI- In MAC terms I am a NC 45 or medium dark skin tone). Purple on my face! I was a bit horrified actually but there was no harm in testing it out on my cheeks.

Boy was I wrong! This is absolutely beautiful for my skin tone! And from now on I will definitely be trying new shades of makeup. This blush wore about 6 hours for me before it started to fade. Unfortunately I actually stuck to my agenda and just got the mascara instead. When I was at the check out the same makeup artist who applied the blush for me was like “You know you want it” Ha Ha, so true! 
 
So this is my newest makeup baby who so far looks awesome in terms of its packaging and brush head. Did you think I should have chosen the blush ombre instead? Well when I test out the mascara it better be good otherwise I would feel bad in leaving Vintage Grape in the store. Anywho, be sure to check out the Daphne Guinness for MAC Collection now available at Trinidad MAC stores and let me know what you got!
Happy MAC shopping!
XOXO

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.
