Lippie Love: Revlon Colorburst in Soft Rose and Raspberry

Revlon is one of my favourite affordable brands and finding a good Revlon sales representative at Pennywise was like striking oil. I took my mom in with me to find some suitable shades for her and I met the most pleasant Revlon lady ever! I believe her name is Kerry and her cheerful attitude is infectious. Her knowledge of the brand and its items was so good I ended up buying more than I came for.
Meet my mommy’s new loves, Soft Rose and Raspberry. Now raise your hands for how many of you have moms who thinks they are young and can rock the same shades like you! Both hands raised here! She loved them so much Soft Rose didn’t stand a chance on getting his picture taken before she used him.

Now she uses Soft Rose for work since it a more ever day wearable shade and uses Raspberry to add some flair since it’s a dark, richer colour. The Colorburst lipsticks are amazing with its range of shades that are nicely pigmented and have a creamy formula.

Now while I totally love these lipsticks, I’m literally slowly going bonkers for why the new Revlon lip butters are taking so long to arrive here. The word is that they should be out in the next two weeks, so maybe early February. In case you want to wait out that time doing your nails, check out the core nail enamels (not top speed or scented ones) which are now 50% off at SuperPharm, so make that $14.99TT a bottle!
Happy Lippie Loving!

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.
