Just Bitten

You guessed it! I’m on a short vacation and just wanted to relax with the makeup looks a bit. So this time I tried the popular cat eye and instead of doing a nude lip, made it sultrier by adding a dark lip stain. The Revlon Just Bitten lip stain and balm helped me achieve this look. This is my first lipstain that I had for a long time but when I initially got it, it wasn’t the colour I had hoped it was so it got pushed away until my recent spring cleaning
The colour I’m wearing here is called Lust. It’s a dark brown that can go on sheer with one swipe but you can pack on the drama with a few more. The tip of the pen is like a fat marker but it gives you a precise application. The balm is not sticky as a lip gloss but gives you a nice sheen on top of the stain if you like. I’m wearing just the stain in this picture. 
The colour lasts a while, though I feel as a stain it does wear off a bit too soon for me. Since I’m on vacation I didn’t mind reapplying. Oh well I’m off to do some shopping! Hope you enjoy your day. Are there any lip stains you adore? I think I’m more of a lipstick girl at the moment.
Happy Lip Staining!

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.
