Lining and Defining with Revlon Colorstay Crème Gel Eyeliner & Photoready 3D Volume Mascara

New products from Revlon yeah! These are two of my favourite new ones and are great for beginners like me. 
Let’s first explore Revlon’s Colorstay crème gel eyeliner in black. It’s smooth, creamy and glides on with easy. I don’t particularly think it is super black but pigmented enough after a few passes. I love the packaging with a very useful brush to line with. While you can make a thin line with it, this is a bit difficult to do but the brush makes an excellent thick line for those cat eye dramatic looks. The only thing about this is that the pot is really small, which might actually be a positive if you want to try some other colours. I don’t think I would be able to use it up soon though. I will report back if I do. 
Do you want some eye looks now? OK! I give you the dramatic winged out eye liner using Revlon crème gel eyeliner in black. 
Ding Round Two! Introducing Revlon Photoready 3D volume mascara. This bad boy is armed with a magnificent brush with rubberized spikes even at his tip. Why does that remind me of a chain saw? 
I feel he does add length and volume to my lashes, but not sure how to judge him on being 3D. Take a look for yourself. 
Now put these two new boys on the block together and what do we have here? Well lined and defined eyes of course. Let me know how you line and define your eyes or if you want to have these two boys for yourself! 
Happy Lining & Defining!
XOXO

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.
