Halener Rustique Green Pigments: Into the Forest, Mya & Cancun


So this is the first three in the green pigments to review from Halener Rustique. The purple pigments were quite impressive. Let’s dive straight into swatches. Just to note my swatches are done without primer so it’s just the pure colour showing through. 

From left to right: Into the Forest, Mya & Cancun
 Into the Forest is a deep dark forest green. It appears darker in the bag than on application. 
 
Mya is a mysterious colour. It appears like an extremely dark green, almost black in the bag but on application it shows up to be a sparkly green with the dark green undertone. 

Cancun is a bright leafy green. This colour is true to what you see in the bag. This one is my favourite out of this bunch. The colour is stunning and reminds me of the famous Cancun of Mexico.  
 
Just like the purple colours they are pigmented, smooth to apply and all very sparkly. However, you can expect eye-shadow sparkle fallout though, so make sure to use a good primer and sweep them off your face during the day. More green pigments to come soon!
Happy Shopping!
XOXO

Coffee Date Night with Bae

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.
