Happy Friday! Volume #14

Who doesn’t love a Friday? It’s the start to the weekend where we beauty lovers can get some more time to indulge in our stashes of beauty items. More so we get maybe some time for ourselves to just do nothing much or something extravagant! It’s also a time for me to share more about me to you that may or may not be beauty related. Feel free to share what you will be up to this weekend. Happy Friday!

Beauty Adventure? I'm jumping on the B.B. Cream train! The Garnier skin renew miracle skin perfector b.b. cream (a huge mouthful to say!) was the only b.b.cream I could find here now. Well actually I found the Estee Lauder one too but not in my shade. So far I really like that it glides on smoothly, blends in well with my skin-tone and has a great smell. I love products with multiple uses to make my makeup routine simpler!

Plans for the weekend? I recently discovered that Sacha Cosmetics has some new smokey eye kits! I'm really into palettes lately and this Smokey Earth 6 piece eyeshadow set is just super cute! I'm definitely going to play around with this for a new earthy look!

And of course, for a little downtime this girl needs to catch up on her movies! So many to see but so little time.

Something about me? Did I mention my first degree was in chemistry? I fell in love with the subject while in secondary school when I saw a colourful reaction in test tubes. I've always loved making colourful products in the lab and while my work life has drifted me far away from the lab, I'm still most interested in the chemistry of makeup and their colours too!

Happy Friday!

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…

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…
