Tantalizing Teal: OCC Saturate


Have you heard about OCC? Well it stands for Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. I’m guessing the person who developed this line of cosmetics probably had the infamous obsessive compulsive disorder over makeup. Anyway it’s great when you can find brands like these locally so you can check out for yourself. At the glorious Magical Makeup booth in Trincity Mall or online at www.occmakeup.com one can dive into these products for yourself.
Now quite honestly it wasn’t until recently that I conquered my fear of using loose eye-shadows. I still make a mess when using them but I have also experienced how fun they can be. 
I don’t know how they come up with the names of the colour since the word “Saturate” would never strike me as this gorgeous teal blue sparkly colour. It is absolutely fabulous in the sunlight. 
So my experience working with this colour is that you really need a good stiff brush to pack on the colour. Since it is a loose product, you can expect the fallout if you pick up too much. But on its own even with a primer I did get fallout during the day but it wasn’t excessive. The colour itself blends really nicely. I prefer to use this as a main lid colour and just a touch of this beautiful colour under the eyelid as well. I did mix a bit of this colour with a blue gel liner and it was absolutely gorgeous! Try it. I personally love combining this sparkly teal colour with a matte dark brown. Here’s what you can try.
How would you use OCC’s Saturate? I can see myself finding so many ways to incorporate this bright but cheerful colour into my makeup routine as much as I can. I am really impressive with these loose colours that I will be venturing into what other colours I can find! (FYI: Only $60TT)
Happy Teals!
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. 

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.
