Cucumbers and Cashmere- New colours in NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils


Cucumbers and cashmere! Sounds fun right? These are two newer shades in the Nyx jumbo eye pencil line. Does it matter that I never got the popular shades Milk or Blackbean?
Anyway I am drawn to colour and these two new additions to my stash are welcomed since I love greens and didn’t have any green base to go with my gorgeous MAC Lucky Green, and well the Cashmere looks like a nice neutral base colour as well as a close to nude shade I was looking for to open up the eyes a bit. 
Cucumber is a beautiful bright green with no shimmer, just flat colour. It does look a bit sheer on application when used as a base, I was really looking for that green punch of colour at once. But if you use it for lining the colour shows up more intense.
Cashmere on the other hand is a shimmery nude champagne colour. It is just as creamy and works beautifully as a base just as cucumber.
I do find I get a bit of creasing on using these JEP’s alone for colour so I usually have to just use them as bases instead with a powder eyeshadow on top. Cucumber is my favourite of these two. Stay tuned for a new look using these beautiful new jumbo eye pencils. I’m running away now to find the other new shades, cobalt and peacock!
Happy Cucumbers!
XOXO

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.
