Enjoying a Slice of Sacha Tiramisu


Tiramisu. Yum Yum tiramisu. Besides enjoying a slice of that heaven, this eye shadow quad from Sacha Cosmetics is yummy too!
In case you’re wondering what is tiramisu, it is basically a dessert that looks like a cake. It’s layered with ladyfingers usually dipped in coffee, mascarpone cheese mixture and cocoa powder. The mascarpone cheese mixture may consist of egg yolks, sugar and mascarpone cheese. Yummy! 
Sacha has improved the look of their packaging with the black on the outside of their eye-shadow cases.  Even though there is no mirror in this quad, the back of the case is in silver, very reflective and can act like one.
So let’s see how this translates into Sacha naming this eye shadow quad. So there are two cream coloured shadows in this quad which may represent the two main elements of tiramisu, the mascarpone cheese and the ladyfingers. There is one yellow shade representing the egg yolks and then the rich brown colour for the cocoa powder or maybe the coffee. Ok now I get the quad name.
They colours are nicely pigmented, smooth and buttery to apply. This impressed me a lot since I know a lot of other Sacha eye shadow users have complained about the shadows being hard and you have to dig into them to get the colour. This was definitely not my experience here. The only downside I experienced with these shadows was the fallout and I did feel like I had to pack on the yellow shade to get the intense colour that I wanted.
Nevertheless I made them work for me and this is a simple eye look I created. Use the bottom cream colour from the inner corner of eye and tear duct, blending in the middle of the eyelid with the yellow shade and then finally the brown to the outer V blended into the crease. Use the top cream colour which has shimmer but a matte finish as the highlight since the other 3 shades are all very shimmery. Bring some brown and yellow under the lower lash line as well. 
 
Would you like to share some tiramisu and some good coffee with me? Enjoy!
Enjoying Tiramisu!

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. 

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…

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.
