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!

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.
