Metallic Madness with MAC Metal X Collection

Hello world! Just a quick post to inform you that the MAC Metal X collection of cream eye-shadows is now available at our local MAC counters. Seriously I am not trying to keep up with each collection since they are so many at the same time but I was looking for a birthday gift for my mom and stumbled across these beauties. Don’t you just have to go to the MAC store when you go to the mall?
The collection consists of 9 colours. The sizes of these are bigger than the normal eye-shadow pots. Since they are cream eye-shadows they are recommended for wear with a primer unlike the paint pots that can be worn on their own.
Just before you rush out to buy them, there have been mixed reviews on these since some folks are experiencing creasing with these. The good scientist in me thought I would check it out for myself. Hopefully I have good success with these. They are $165TT a pop after all.
I did a bit of swatching in the store with the olive green shade called Vintage Coin. (Hmmm Vintage Grape Blush Ombre, now Vintage Coin cream eyeshadow, what’s up with the word Vintage keep repeating itself?) I got myself Venetian Tarnish which is a golden bronze. Super metallic and pretty! Will let you know how my little experiment goes! Wish me luck!
Happy Metal X Shopping
XOXO

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…
