Getting to know Artistry Skincare

So well you know I am always out to some new exhibition on everything girly. Last year I was invited to attend one at the Centre of Excellence to explore the Artistry Brand. Artistry has been the sponsor for the Miss America pageants.
So let’s start off with their skincare products. They have the usual cleanser, toner and moisturizer 3 steps to maintain healthy skin. There is the Essentials line which is for the basic skincare while the Time Defiance line is for its anti-aging benefits. They also have eye creams, lip conditioners, masques and vitamin c serums etc.
What intrigued me the most was their crème luxury which was said to be used by Sandra Bullock. She does look amazing for her age so maybe this item really works. It’s extremely expensive though; think about $3000TT for the big container (but don’t quote me on that)! Yikes!!!
At this event you can have your skin analysed to determine what’s your skin type and what are you problems or damaged areas. You can have a facial done by one of their trained estheticians. I loved the skin analyser machine since when you look into it you appear blue like an avatar. Of coursed all this information is used to suggest the right products for your skin type. I had normal to combination skin but I knew that already.
I got myself the cleanser, toner and moisturizer from the essentials line since that was all I could afford (about $450TT) and I am really trying to stick to the regimen of the 3 step process for healthy skin. Will let you know how that goes.

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…

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.

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…
