The Hunt is On! The Hunt was Won! Finding Milani Liquif'eye Eyeliners


I don’t know what it’s like to hunt down a criminal but they are usually on the run. That is exactly how I felt trying to find Milani’s Liquif’eye metallic eyeliner pencil in Black. I was literally staking all Milani sections at Wonderful World in the hope I could get a clue that they were close by. I saw signs all right with his cousins aqua and silver lurking around sometimes.
It happened just by accident really, just when I was taking a casual stroll and in disguise as a non-buyer that he took the chance to show up. But I was armed and ready for him! Caught red handed, felt he could get away by hiding one spot down in another colours lane! Tricky bastard!

Now the colours of these 3 are absolutely out of this world great! They are super pigmented that in one swipe you get an intense colour but they are soft and creamy that I actually broke the black one from doing the swatch. The black one reminded me of those kajal pencils and the L’Oreal Chrome eyeliner Black Shock.
Something to note, if you want to smudge out these liners you have to do so quickly since they set pretty quickly and definitely don’t budge once set. You will need makeup remover to get them off. I wore the black liner for 10 hours on my lower waterline without getting any signs of a budding raccoon eye!
These pencils are supposed to give you a metallic finish but the black liner is so black that you can’t see the metallic finish but with the silver pencil you get that metallic look with the colour. Aqua gives you a look more like a metallic sheen than a full on metallic colour.
Last point is that you will need a sharpener for these pencils but that is so minor compared to how amazing these liners are! I couldn’t help myself but to experiment with these colours and do some dramatic lined eyes.

  Some more good news! There are more colours to this line, a brown and gold that should be equally amazing!
Happy Lining!

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.
