Pretty Playgirl: Antique Gold, Blue Satin, Jade & Purple Neon Loose Eye-Shadows

Playgirl Cosmetics is the sister brand to CaraMia and are both made in Trinidad. Somebody say “Go Local!” This was another line of products in which I couldn’t find a single swatch for or review on so I had to bit the bullet and make the plunge into these products myself.
They currently have 22 colours but these are the 4 colours that caught my eye. I’ll be on the hunt until I get them all.
They come in a small plastic gold pot with a clear lid so it’s really easy to see the colour inside. If you’re a MAC fan, the Playgirl containers are about the same size (diameter and height) as the MAC eye-shadow pots. The lids are screw top ones though and there is a clear protective plastic on top of the loose eye-shadow. These containers come full to the brim with eye-shadow so this clear plastic comes in handy to prevent spillovers.
Antique Gold: Rich gold colour with sparkle.
Blue Satin: Dark blue shimmer with purple duochrome
Jade: Green with sparkle.
Purple Neon: Soft lilac sparkle.

I tested these for wear. I used Purple Neon for the inner half of the lid and Blue Satin for the other half of the lid blending the two colours in the middle. Awesome combination btw! Using just a touch of NYX eye-shadow base I got a very long wear. Actually I wore these colours for 12 hours and I got very little creasing, creasing didn’t occur until about 8 hours after application. But you do get some eye-shadow sparkle fallout.
Overall these loose eye-shadows are extremely pigmented and for that alone I would considered them a success. They are also soft and smooth in texture. Easy to apply but if you are like me I get loose eye-shadows all over the place. I definitely would have preferred them in the compact form. I have a hard time picking a favourite out of this bunch, it’s a close tie between Blue Satin and Jade.
So what do you think about Playgirl eye-shadows?
Happy Shopping!

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.
