The CaraMia Chronicles- I’m Rude & Caliente

After loving the CaraMia blushes a lot, I couldn’t help but explore the rest of their range of products. I’m not a girl who is afraid of colour. I guess living in the Caribbean makes that a little easier to do. Now introducing: CaraMia’s lipstick in Rude which is an orange coral colour. It does appear on the red side but you see the orange tones on application.

The colour is really pigmented so one swipe and you get what is in the tube. But what I didn’t like was that it felt really drying on the lips. The colour remained fixed for most of the day until I ate a really greasy meal!
So next up is their lip-gloss called Caliente. If you are a Spanish lover you would know the name Caliente in Spanish means Hot!!! So this colour is pretty deceiving, it looks red, really hot red but on application it comes across more like a hot pink. You can see in the picture below how the colour on the doe foot applicator looks like the red while lower down on the wand you can see the pink. 
The lip-gloss on its own is just like a regular lip-gloss, not too sticky but shiny enough. I preferred to layer Rude with Caliente. It gives the red look I was looking for. 
So overall I wasn’t so impressed with these two as I was with their blushes but I’m sure to continue on with exploring the range to see what other jewels I can find from them. I will be wearing Caliente though for Valentine’s Day!
Being Rude & Hot


  1. Naomi,strangely enough the Caliente looks really good,just not red and I must say the pigmentation on Cara Mia lipsticks are improving..

Revlon Sculpting Blush Palette in Pink

I have never been so disappointed in a Revlon product before… until now! Maybe I chose the wrong colour for my skin-tone but there are so many other things about this palette that makes me think I should have bought some more lip butters instead. Let’s start with what I do love about the palette. It’s simple black compact that has the same sleek look as the other Revlon photo-ready items. I find a highlighter, contour shade and blush in one palette is a great idea too. Having more blush colour in terms of quantity with smaller sections for the highlighter and contour makes perfect sense since I will use more of the blush anyway. The colours as they appear in the pan look perfectly coordinated to work with each other. You get a small brush with soft bristles in your kit to ensure you can just pop this in your bag and you’re off.  In the sunlight Now here is where it all goes downhill like Jack and Jill with their pail of water. Let’s start with the swatches which made me think twic
