Velvet Teddy Lips

Does the name sound familiar? It’s MAC’s matte lipstick in Velvet Teddy. The name invokes images of cute teddy bears with their soft fur. How did I end up here! Anyway so after trying numerous bright coloured lippies I wanted another nude shade. What I love about the MAC experience is that there is something for everyone and if you are willing to spend time doing swatches you can find the right one for you. This shade was chosen after trying on Twig, Cherish and some more. Anybody knows how many permanent MAC lipsticks there are? 
Honestly the colour itself looks like I just applied concealer to my lips! I do feel it washes me out a bit but when I paired it with a dramatic or dark eye the overall look comes together nicely. When Velvet Teddy is compared to the other nude colour MAC lipstick; Hug Me, it is slightly more pink toned but still a pretty close dupe just without the sheen.
Since Velvet Teddy is matte it does have a more drying effect on the lips and I needed to exfoliate them before since it accentuated all the lines. I simply pat the colour onto the lips instead of swiping.
In case you wondering what I’m wearing on the eyes, it’s the WetNWild Petal Pusher palette. I seem to be crazy about palettes lately. I guess it’s because my handbag never has enough space so the individual shadows always get lost somewhere. 
Hope you are having a great day! Any palettes you love lately or what is your favourite nude lipstick?
Happy Velvet Teddy!

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.

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…
