Ambrosia Cosmetics Steel Grey Eye-Shadow #704 vs Sacha Smoke

Sometimes it’s a great thing that you don’t get what you want since the substitution maybe a diamond in the rough. When I was developing my ambrosia creative palette I wanted all matte eye shadows and I needed a grey to be one of those colours. Unfortunately they were sold out from their annual sale and I settled on a shimmery grey instead called Steel Grey. This one is amazing! It’s smooth in application and very pigmented on its own without any primer. It actually appears darker, more to its actual name than how it appears in the pan (more silvery). The only downside from wearing is that you do get some eye-shadow fallout from the sparkle even with a primer. But simply gorgeous otherwise.
The other pretty grey in my makeup arsenal is Sacha’s Smoke. Now this one is shimmery as well but with a bronzy duochrome but it reflects all colours of the rainbow in the sunlight. It appears darker than Steel grey in the pan but on application it’s a softer grey. It’s buildable all right but still soft. It blends out nicely to create a soft smoky eye, which I sometimes do for work. I get minimal fallout with is one but I find the colour fades a bit for me at the end of the 8 hour workday. 
 
Which one do I like better? Well it all depends on the occasion. I prefer Sacha’s Smoke for an everyday type of wear but Ambrosia’s Steel Grey for the dark sultry smoky night time makeup. I will create some looks for you to see soon!
Happy Grey Eyeshadows!

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. 

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.
